Hi lovelies…
I’ve skipped my beauty favourites for the last 2 months as I was quite busy and I noticed I’ve been using similar products over and over again. But October was a game changer for me.
i’ve been loving a darker semi matte-matte lip colour and pair it with shimmery eyes. These are the products that i’ve been using the most. Let’s get started!

Beauty Blender (black)

I finally get ordered my first ever beauty blender from Luxola.com and I’m so mad with myself for not getting it earlier. it is pretty expensive, but the quality and softness of the sponge as superior and nothing could compete with the beauty blender. It is soft and bouncy. It is so easy to apply liquid foundation and blends my concealer with the beauty blender. I love it so much! I can’t wait to get my hands on the smaller beauty blender (for concealer) once it is available.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger

My skin not behaving so well due to stress and this is the only product that can conceal every flaw and still look natural. I did have a few weekend trips in October. NARS creamy concealer is my saviour during those trips. All I applied is the new Olay CC cream is pretty sheer and light and I use it all over the blemishes and under the eyes. After blending it into the skin, it is like I’m wearing a full coverage liquid foundation. Great for photography and convenient to bring while travelling.

Revlon Photo Ready Concealer in 005 Medium Deep

As NARS’s concealer is expensive and precious, I like to use Revlon Photo Ready Concealer as a cheaper alternative. This is thicker but blends beautifully. I like to apply using my clean fingers as it is easier to blend as the product melt with the warmth of my fingers. It gives great coverage and long lasting too.

Maybelline 24Hours Color Tattoo in 55 Inked In Pink

As I’ve said, I love pairing shimmery eyes with bold matte lips thorough October. I use this a lot as my eye makeup base, or even wore it alone with a simple black eyeliner. Sometimes I mixed it up by using a brownish eyeshadow and pat it on top of the Inked In ink, and it looks equally beautiful. i like to pair this a lot with my Naked 3 eyeshadows.

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

This really open up the eyes, making it bigger with perky lashes. I love the dainty lower lash wand. It make it easy to separate those tiny lower lashes with no smudges.

NYX Matte Lipstick in Perfect Red

I just got this in October and I think I might have found my perfect Red. This is much better that the Maybelline Red Porcelain that i mentioned in my Lip Product Addict tag. i love how creamy it glides on the lips and the matte finish is on point. It is moisturising and long lasting. Definitely my Perfect Red.

Bourjois Rouge Edition in 05 Brun bohème

This is a beautiful brown with a hint of brick/belacan that I have been wearing a lot to work. It is not as eye-catching as the NYX Perfect Red but this is way darker than my everyday MLBB lipstick. This is a creamy lipstick that is hydrating and very pigmented. One swipe is all you need to get the perfect opacity. It does transfer a lot so I had to reapply at least once or twice through out the whole day.

Bourjois Lil Blush Pot in 16 Rose Coup De Foudre

I love to keep it light and natural on the cheeks this month. I won this through Bourjois x Watsons instagram contest and I’m so happy i got this. The Little Round Pot has been around for 150 years and I can definitely see why it lasted thorough the generations. Rose Coup De Foudre is a natural rosy blush with a subtle shimmers. on my medium skin tone, it doesn’t show up much but I love the glow that this shades gave to my complexion. It is good to tone down the cheeks with the bold lips (I don’t really want to look like a clown)

It is already the first week of November, I think I’m still rocking for the shimmery eyes + bold matte lips combo makeup look.
