Makeup Favorites – October 2018!


Time to do a round up of favorites of the past month. I love doing these posts because it’s so much fun to share the really good stuff with you. The products are few this month, but the reason is that I won’t ever put a product in these posts unless I have been using them a lot during the past month. So my favorites will always be a selection of the very much loved products. So only the really great stuff I can stand by will be mentioned. I have to say I have tried many things that will potentially will be in future favorites post because I’ve stumbled upon so much fun stuff. But today we talk about the well used stuff!


The first thing I want to talk about really impressed me. And that is BH Cosmetics Life Is A Festival Palette. I know so many have been raving about this, but I have tried 4 BH Cosmetics palettes before, and three of them were of such mediocre quality that I didn’t care to keep them in my collection, but this palette made me change my mind about the brand. Maybe they have really improved their eyeshadow game. I think there is no bad shade in this palette. The overall quality is really good, but what really impressed me was the bright matte shades. The blue could possibly be one of my very best blue mattes. It’s absolutely exceptional. Super pigmented, super blend-able and so creamy and smooth. If you want to try one palette by BH Cosmetics then try this and be amazed because this is absolutely fantastic and so much fun to play with. The price is also excellent. You can’t go wrong with this!


A big lash favorite this month have been House Of Lashes Iconic. I know this is a classic that so many people love, and it should not be any news for you that these are a well loved lash style. I have worn out a pair in October and I already got a new one. The style is so good for so many looks and gives a very flattering cat-eye effect. At the same time they are not to dense so it shows the eyeshadow very well instead of hiding your work like other more dramatic styles can easily do. These just look so flattering, and so far this is absolutely my favorite style form House of Lashes!


Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in “Nuanced”. This is a nice glowy blush with 4 different shades that you can either mix together of just focus on one of the shades. It’s softly pigmented but gives a really nice glow. I have been pairing it with my Glominerals blush in “Papaya” which is in my project pan to make it more glowy, but it can also be used on its own and gives a soft flush of color but a nice glowy cheek. It does not have any shimmer or glitter but gives just the right amount of radiance to the skin.


Two of my KissMe Liquid Lipsticks from this months bundle are already favorites of mine and I have been reaching for them so much. Apple Cider is a beautiful muted red and has been my go-to for parties and evenings. Pumpkin Spice Latte is a stunning everyday orange that I’ve also reached for a lot. Who would have thought a orange would become my favorite lipstick? I didn’t for sure! And the formula is very comfortable and long lasting.


The Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in “Be my Highlight” has been one of my monthly favorites before. I also wrote a full review of the highlighter that you can read here if you want. Even though I have already mentioned this in a favorites before, I just can’t help but mentioning it again when I used it almost every single day all throughout October. It gives such an amazing glow.

That’s actually everything for now. Even though my list of favorites is not that high, the few ones I have I highly recommend!

October makeup favorites 2017


One of my favorite posts to make, because who doesn’t like sharing their makeup favorites! These are products I’ve really been loving through this month and that I would highly recommend. I dint have that many products this month and I am actually lacking any favorite lipstick or skincare item, but the few things I have are really good and fun products. So lets get to it!


Gucci Flora Georgeous Gardenia a sweet fruity and floral fragrance. The top notes are red berries, heart note is white gardenia and frangipani flower, and the base note is brown sugar. Very fresh, sweet, romantic and feminine. I bought this bottle over a year ago, but this month I just could not put it down and kept favoring it over all my other perfumes over and over again. Worth a try if you like sweet floral scents.


Ok, if you know me from instagram you have probably seen this brand and these jars of delicious pumkin butters before. They are, and will always be, a holy grail product for me. They have a range of scents that are permanent through the year, and in addition they release a collection of new scents with each season. Grimore is a new scent to me, and belong to their fall collection this year. This is their 2 0z try-me size but I already ordered 2 big jars, and I hope that will last me until I can hopefully purchase it again with next years fall collection. I love the fresh clean scent of this in particular, but will off course recommend the product as a whole. They have such a big selection of delicious scents so I am sure anyone can find a scent that is tempting.


These guys are a surprise to me. I never really thought I would like eyeshadows from the H&M house range. I just assumed they would not be very good, and I had swatched a few shades without being too impressed so I was never really tempted to try. However, when I found these on sale for next to nothing I figured I would pick them up and give them a fair chance. I am actually so impressed! The shadows are incredibly smooth to work with, quite buttery without producing too much kickback or fallout, and they are true to the shade you see in the pan. Very easy to work with as well, blends great and applies evenly. These two shades have been my most worn eyeshadows in October. I used “Moss It Over” ‘(right) in the crease and “Bismarch Palm” (left) all over the lid for a quick and wearable green look for everyday. I dont very often wear colorful shades to work, but these shades are so flattering. I will for sure pick up more shades and continue trying out different shades to check if the range overall is as great, but these two are for sure excellent eyeshadows.


Super nice peachy blush trio from Anastasia! The palette is really handy for travel since it is fairly compact with a lot of product and three shades. They are quite pigmented, but that is not a problem (I actually prefer medium pigmentation for blush since I would rather build up color instead of being too careful) since they blend out very easy. Shades are very pretty and they last on the skin for a fairly good amount of time. Besides the whole product is just so pretty!


Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Fresh Powder Makeup is a loose power foundation that feels so light to wear, and looks absolutely beautiful on the skin. I use it as a powder on top of foundation. A little really goes a long way and it makes my skin look really healthy, radiant and even. According to Dior this also contains 20% water (It is beyond me how a fine milled loose powder can be 20 % water, but alright) so maybe a nice choice for you ladies troubled with dry skin?


And the big finale is this Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour palette. I picked it up after hearing Tati (from YouTube) rave about it. And yes, It is fantastic! The best thing is that I like all the products in this palette, and they are so versatile! I used every single one of these shades. I wont write too much in detail because I want to write a dedicated review post about only this product. It is just lovely all the way. Since it is Makeup Revolution it is also very affordable. Overall it is a big hit, so stay tuned for my review on it.

That’s all for this month. I hope you enjoyed reading it. I really like to know what you have been loving lately as well. Leave me a comment if you had a favorite product in October you think I should check out. I always love getting tips on what to try out next.
