October Beauty Favorites

October was a good month!  Mostly because it was a really fun month.  Between decorating the house for fall, carving pumpkins, and dressing up for Halloween, it’s probably been my favorite month of the year besides the month when Phil and I got engaged.  I was also introduced to some fun beauty products in the month of October, as well.  Here are a couple that caught my attention!


01.  Tint Skin Foundation in Linen.  I recently wrote a review on this wonderful foundation by Beautycounter.  You can read the full review here!

02.  OPI Classic Nail Lacquer in Pink Flamenco.  I know hot pink is not traditionally a color one would think to wear in the fall, but the weather here in North Carolina has been so warm lately that I’ve been feeling rather bright still.  I love this shade from OPI!  It’s pink, but a deep pink so I think it works year-round.

03.  Olay Age Defying Classic Cleanser.  I’ve recently been using Beautycounter’s Nourishing Cream Cleanser, but ran out and was in a pinch for a cleanser while I waited on a new bottle.  I ran to the drug store and saw the Olay products in the beauty section.  For as long as I can remember, my mother has always used Olay products.  I can recall borrowing her cleanser and moisturizer from time to time as a teen, and loving how smooth it left my skin.  I was not disappointed when I brought the Age Defying Classis Cleanser home.  I was instantly reminded why my mom loves their products so much!  It’s a light, cream cleanser that has tiny micro-beads in the formula to help remove dead skin.  It leaves my skin feeling clean and moisturized at the same time.

04.  I was running low on mascara and had a $13 credit to use on  I had seen a lot of positive feedback on the Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara and decided to give it a try.  I’ve been really happy with it so far.  It gives my lashes tons of volume!  The only two things I’m not a huge fan of is the application wand and the fact that it tends to smudge a bit throughout the day.  Other than that, it’s a mascara I would use again.

05.  Neutrogena Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes in the Night Calming scent.  I’ve been on a cleansing towel kick lately.  Each time I go to the store to buy a pack, I seem to come home with a different brand or scent.  I’ve tried Neutrogena’s regular cleansing wipes before, but picked up the night calming version and think I’ve discovered a new favorite!  The night calming scent smells so clean and relaxing.  I love using them before bed!
