October Favorites

Another month has gone by which means that it’s time for another Favorites post. Here is what I’ve been loving this month:

October Favorites

Clinique – Fresh Bloom Allover Colour in Peony (discontinued and replaced with this) – 0.31 oz

Sometimes I feel like I’m the only beauty blogger that really doesn’t care for fall makeup. I guess I’m really wishing for it to be spring already so I’m gravitating toward lighter makeup instead of darker fall colors. This Clinique allover powder is perfect for that. I swirl the light and medium color together and use it as a blush. It gives me just a light flush of color that looks very natural on my fair skin. This is a lovely pallet which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

Murad  – Daily Foaming Cleanser – 5.1 fl oz, $28

I got this cleanser earlier this month and I’ve been using it every evening since. I usually take off my makeup with a makeup remover wipe and use this cleanser afterward. I love the pomegranate scent and that it comes with a foaming pump – so convenient. It cleanses really well without drying out my skin.

ChapStick Hydration Lock – 0.15 oz, $2.99 estimated value

After I got this lip balm in my last Birchbox I took it to work so I would have one at my desk. I’ve been finding myself reaching for it quite often. It has a nice vanilla scent and it’s also quite moisturizing without being greasy.

Benefit Cosmetics – ‘Hello Flawless!’ Oxygen Wow Liquid Foundation – 1 fl oz, $36

I’ve been using using this foundation almost exclusively ever since I got a sample of it from Sephora a few weeks ago. It’s has great buildable coverage and blends well. It’s not quite enough to fully cover my acne scars but it makes them much less noticeable and gives me a natural finish.

Philosophy Raspberry Sorbet Shampoo, Bath, and Shower Gel – 16 oz, $16.50

I just love the smell of this shower gel. It lathers nicely and has a good consistency that’s not too runny and not too thick. I think it’s all around a great shower gel for all the berry-lovers out there.

Gray Nail Polish

I’ve been loving gray nail polishes lately. This month I’ve been rotating my manicure between Sephora by OPI’s Frankly, I Don’t Give A-Dam and Metro Chic as well as Julep’s Daria.

Murad – Pore Refining Sealer (part of the Blackhead and Pore Clearing Duo)

I’ve been using this serum as a step two treatment in the mornings and I think it really helps with keeping my skin clear. It absorbs well and doesn’t dry out my skin like many other acne treatments.
