October already! Wow... before we know it, it will be Christmas!

I remember at the beginning of the year, I made a little promise with myself to try and write a monthly favourites post at the end of each month. Unfortunately I haven't written one of these since June (oops!) 
I have discovered lots of new favourites since my last post, so this is more of a 'current favourites' than a monthly favourites... Sorry it's taken me so long!
Murad Skin Perfecting Primer (Matte Finish): I never apply makeup without a primer, I know it's a step that some people chose to skip, but I really can't go without it. This is the first primer I have ever used that's tinted, and although it's a darker tone than my skin, it blends in really well when applied. I find that this makes my skin really even and smooth for applying my foundation, and my makeup always seems to last longer when I use this. I will definitely be buying another bottle when this runs out.
Topshop Lipstick 'Its All About Me': I am loving bright lips at the moment, and this has been my go to lippie for the past few weeks. I've worn it in a few of my recent blog posts too. I'm a big fan of Topshop makeup, especially their lipsticks... I really want to try more shades!
Miners Define & Line Liquid Eyeliner: I don't wear eyeliner very much, only really for nights out. When it comes to actually applying liner, I do struggle, I don't have a very steady hand, but this just seems to work perfectly for me. The applicator is like a felt tip pen, it's very stiff and precise, and just makes it so easy for me to apply, I can create the perfect lines and flicks... I love it.
Nivea Lip Butter ' Caramel Cream': This was an emergency purchase a few weeks ago when I was in the Metro Center. My lips were suddenly sore and I for once, didn't have any lip balm in my bag. I was originally going to just buy the cheapest I could find, but this caught my eye and I needed it! It smells as good as it sounds, and it's very creamy and moisturising on my lips. I'm going to pick up the other yummy sounding flavours next time I'm in town too.
So...? Exclusive Perfume: This was one of the samples which I received for the Leeds Blogger Meet Up goody bags, and I've been wearing this pretty much every day since the event. The packaging reminds me of the Lady Million packaging, which makes it look much more expensive than it actually is, and the scent is just wonderful. I've never really expected much from So...? but I'm going to have to go and sniff the rest next time I'm in Boots, because this has pleasantly surprised me, it;s gorgeous!
Tweezerman: I have always wanted a pair of Tweezerman tweezers... I'm sure everyone has heard how wonderful they are, and I confirm that it's all true, they're amazing! I have a blog post coming up about these in the next week or so, so look out for that!
Angela Langford Lemongrass & Ginger Rich Body Cream: It's times like these that I wish you could scratch and sniff a blog! I can't even find the words to describe how amazing this body cream smells, it's a very fresh, natural smell... one of those smells that almost makes you want to eat the product! Where possible, I definitely prefer to use natural and organic products on my skin, so this is perfect. I suffer from very dry skin on my arms and legs, and this has been doing wonders for me, it's really thick and moisturising and I can almost feel it sinking into my skin. Although it is quite expensive, I find that a little really does go a long way, so this is going to last me ages... definitely worth investing!
Fade Out White Moisturising Cream:  I've been using this on a night time for a couple of weeks now, and I honestly think that it is improving my skin... hard to believe from a moisturiser, but it's amazing! I've had less spots, and the scars I have from old spots do seem have have faded loads! My skin feels so much softer too... look out for my full review next week!
John Fredia Full Repair Styling Spray: I've been using this as a two in one product; a heat protectant for when I'm using my Enrapture Totem Styler or Cloud 9 Stylers, and as a hairspray. I find that it really holds my style, even though it's quite a light misty product, and it makes my hair really glossy. I like it for nights out, when I backcomb my hair, it holds the style, without making it look rough and coarse. It smells lovely too!
Lauren's Way Instant Wash Off Glow: This stuff is the best instant tan I have ever used! It dries instantly, and gives the most natural, olive tan that I have ever seen from a fake tan. I've been using it randomly for days when I'm wearing shorter sleeves or skirts/shorts, and for nights out I've been using it as a last minute top up, on top of the Lauren's Way Darker Than Dark Tan... I just love the stuff. I'll definitely be blogging a full review with photos about this for you all to see.
