October Favourites 2013

 October is one of my absolute favourite months of the year. Mostly because it's my birthday month. Secondly, because it's so close to Christmas. And I love Christmas.
 So here are my favourite products and other things from the month of October.

 I just noticed that most of the products I picked here are lip products. So, well, I guess I just like me some lipstick during October. I love a red lip during any season, really. And this past month I went back to loving my MAC Viva Glam 1, which is a gorgeous matte red lipstick and I love that it is more of a true red than an orange, bright red. For a more neutral lip colour, I've been loving the combination of Revlon ColorStay Rose lip liner which is a pale, pale pink and Revlon's Lip Butter in Pink Truffle. I think these work so well together because the lip liner lasts forever and the lip butter makes up for the dryness of the liner. I wore this on my birthday, too.

 I've also been loving my Lakme Moondust palette which I don't think they sell any more, which is why I really need to look for a similar palette. But basically I used it a ton in October, mostly to create my Taylor Momsen look for Halloween (haha) and I also used it on my birthday!
 And lastly, I didn't want to put this one in already because I barely used it on the last few days of October as it was part of a birthday gift, but ohmygod, the Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil in Solid Black is just absolutely brilliant. Everything from the pigmentation, texture and the lasting power, is just crazy good (review to come soon!).

Other Favourites:

 October has been 'moving month' for me because I just moved house and it was a mess, but still super fun (gotta love home decor). So I've just been listening to whatever music is already on my laptop. I had Miley Cyrus' Bangerz on it -the entire album. And to be honest, when I first heard it, it didn't do much for me. But now that I've listened to it a few times, I'm not ashamed to admit, I actually kinda like it. If not for the other songs, do give a listen to Get It Right. It's pretty awesome.
I haven't watched any particularly good movies but I did get around to reading The Hunger Games which was freakin' amazing. I don't know what kept me from reading it all those years ago.
 Halloween has been a favourite, of course. Unfortunately I didn't have time for outfit photos which sucks. But I was Taylor Momsen from one of my favourite bands, The Pretty Reckless. My birthday was a favourite. That counts, too, right? (Read my birthday outfit and makeup post here)
