October Favourites

It's November! Seriously where is this year going, it's crazy. However we are now only less than 2 months away from the big C which is terrifying but so exciting at the same time, I absolutely love Christmas and cannot wait to enter the festive season! Anyway, on to a few of my favourite things from the month of October...
My first favourite from October is my new favourite mascara, Maybelline The Falsies in waterproof. I tried this mascara last year in the original formula and I was convinced I would love it from all of the wonderful things I'd heard, but I hated it. However since trying the waterproof formula I have completely changed my mind. This mascara is amazing, it gives a super intense black look and keeps my lashes curled and in place all day, with no fall down or smudging whatsoever. It's a little tough to remove I admit but with a helping hand from a good eye makeup remover, it's definitely worth it, and at just £7.99 it's not going to break the bank either! 
I have been using my Makeup Revolution Flawless eyeshadow palette non stop, it is a fantastic palette at just £8.00 for 32 eyeshadows. In particular I have been obsessed with the beautiful copper shades, now that we're into Autumn they are definitely perfect for this time of year. I'm so impressed by Makeup Revolution, all of their products that I've tried have been brilliant and are so inexpensive. If you like MUA products you'd love these too. These eyeshadows are so creamy and buttery, they blend like a dream and last so well on the eyes, even without a primer. 
If you read my blog regularly you'll know that I love brows, and new brow products seriously excite me. I picked up this Rimmel Brow This Way sculpting kit a few weeks ago and I have fallen in love. It is very similar to products such as Benefit Brow Zings and the ELF Brow Kit containing a tinted powder and wax. I picked the shade Dark Brown and both products are super pigmented and blend into the brows beautifully without being false or overpowering. I seriously love this product and for just £3.99 I will definitely be repurchasing it when the time comes. 
A little skincare favourite and life saver in October has been my nspa Brightening Micro-Derma Scrub, a very light and gentle facial exfoliator that very softly buffs away dead skin cells leaving a beautiful, glowy and soft complexion. I'm very cautious with exfoliators as my skin is pretty sensitive and I tend to react to aggressive or heavily scented products, this however is perfect for me. It is very light and has tiny little beads which exfoliate the skin, instead of being a scrub which would be too harsh. There is no obvious scent to this, it just does what it says on the tin.
Lastly is a little different favourite and its my new iPhone 6! Random but I have been obsessed with this since the day I got it, it is an amazing device and if you're a bit of a tech geek like me, you'll understand ;-). I moved from the iPhone 5 so the screen size is much bigger, it has touch id and is generally faster and more enjoyable to use. I've been loving using the blogger app on here now as the screen size is great for typing draft posts on the go and reading blogs on bloglovin. Previously my 5 screen was just that little bit too small so I am super happy with my new device! And I decided to buy it outright, so no stupidly expensive contract! 

What have you been loving in October?
