Well hello there!
October flew literally by I cannot believe it is nearly November, we can finally start getting excited for Christmas woop woop!! I can't wait to tell you about some more makeup items that I have been loving, more high end products this time which is different for me.

I am sorry to my fellow UK makeup lovers because we can't actually get this in the UK, but I absolutely love this loose powder. Before I tried this I only believed in high end loose powders because any drugstore powder I tried always clung to my dry patches. However, this has changed the game! This powder makes my skin look soo smooth and soft and what makes it even better is that it is drugstore. I use this all the time and I am so gutted I can't just go to Superdrug and pick a new one up. The best part about this is that it retails for $7.99 which is around £6, so they need to start stocking this in the UK ASAP!

You know me by now...I LOVE highlighters, its my favourite step in my makeup routine and believe me when I say I have well over 30 highlighters in my collection. What I love about this highlighter is the formula of it, it's quite unique and much different to my other ones. First of all it hasn't got any kick back which means there is no mess with it, and the formula is very soft and does not seem that pigmented when you apply it. However, when it is applied it has such a pretty glow to it. If you love soft and glowy highlighters that aren't in your face then you will love this formula. These are very expensive at £19 but it is a big pan size and I think it is worth it.

I have been using this constantly for over a month now, I received it as a 21st birthday present a couple of months ago and it was just sitting in my draw. When I started using it I just suddenly fell in love with it, the pencil is so so easy to use and it glides on so smoothly. Takes me less than 3 minutes to do my brows just so I can lightly fill them in for work. I love the pencil shape as it is slightly slanted tip to make it more precise when applying, and bonus is that this lasts on your brows for ages! Don't get me wrong this is hella expensive costing £30 and I personally would't buy it myself, but it is a very good eyebrow pencil. If you can't afford to spend £30 on an eyebrow pencil then don't buy this, but if you're looking for a new high end brow pencil then I recommend checking this out. 

When my parents went to America in the summer I HAD to ask them to pick up the famous Tarte Shape Tape concealer. It's fair to say that I completely understand the immense hype with this product, the coverage is amazing. I was worried about it being too drying as it is a thick formula but that's not the case at all. I have been using this everyday and don't get me wrong this is an expensive concealer BUT it is completely worth it. If you get the chance to buy this then 100% pick it up because you will not regret it, especially if you love full coverage concealers. 

So those are my October Favourites, hope you all have a wonderful Halloween and watch lot's of horror films (I know I will be!).
