October Favourites | Beauty

October flew by so fast! But I still found a couple new products to love along with some oldies. Some of these products I have reviews on already, and I'll have some more coming up soon on the newer items.

Let's start with the new stuff! You know how much I loved my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream, but it was a bit too dewy during summer, so I had stopped using it. I had always wanted to try the Garnier BB cream and when I saw that the Combination-Oily Skin formula was available in Collins, I had to jump on it. I lusted this for a while because I heard it gave a more matte finish than the original. I love this! Good coverage, matte, yet it looks natural and it lasts all day on me!

L'Oreal True Match Foundation is not that new on the market, but it's new to me! I've never seen it in Barbados and so after hearing how good this was, I was just so excited to try this when it also appeared in Collins. I think this shade is a bit too red for me, but goodness does it last on the skin! even on really hot, humid days.
Not a new product, but a repurchase of an old favourite, the Maybelline Baby Lips is a great lip balm. I also picked up the pink one (Pink Punch), but I don't like it as much. I find it strange but my lips aren't loving this as much as they used to.  I definitely need to exfoliate my lips more often.

Then the older stuff, the Smashbox cream blush in Captivate has become a staple for my everyday routine as well as the e.l.f. Studio Blush and Bronzer kit in Turks & Caicos which I switch along with the cream blush with or alone. 

Finally, I had rediscovered this amazing Maybelline gloss in Raspberry Reflections.  I love this and everyone else who notices me wearing it seems to as well. I wore this along with my M.A.C. lipstick for my birthday, then just this gloss after a while and it was just as vibrant! (without all the hassle of a lipstick)

That's all for my favourites this October, did you have any new product loves last month? Re-discovered any old favourites from your makeup stash?


  1. I got a new favorite! Smashbox BB cream- it is now my go-to! I loveeeee it to pieces.

  2. OOOH, That's great! I wish I could try that, sadly it's not available here :(
