October and November Favourites

You're probably getting tired of hearing (rather, reading) me say that my lack of time has not allowed new additions to my make-up routine, but this still holds true. I do realize, however, that the lack of time has made me test and choose products that require little to no effort to look perfect. I've also gone with relatively the same look, with variations only in eyeshadow and lip colour. Those are the easiest things to change up, after all!

The goal these past two months was too look bright and awake even with my lack of sleep. I've really grown to rely and appreciate these three (three!!) products, so discussing them now says a lot about how good they are.

Milani Baked Blush (Luminoso)

An impulse buy! I've heard a lot of hype around this blush, claiming it imparted a colour and luminosity that could not be rivaled. I was initially skeptical when I got this in the mail, as it looked too light and peachy in the pan. Weeks later, I've found that I've been reaching for this blush every time I wear make-up! It appears a bit darker on the skin versus the pan, and really brings a lot of life to the face without looking ridiculous.

Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

I'm not sure if I ever mentioned this in a previous favourites post, but I should have! This is a champagne highlighter that I find to suit my skin really well versus white and pink-toned highlighters. I use it on the tops of my cheekbones, inner eye corner, and on my cupids bow; the result is instantly brighter skin sans glitter.

Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara

I've been trying this out for around 3 months now before forming an opinion. While it isn't anything close to my Fairydrops Platinum Mascara, it does a good job at lengthening the lashes in a subtle way. I think this is what people consider a 'weekend mascara' - it adds something without going over the top. I like that this really makes a difference in making my eyes look wider and more awake. While definitely worth a try, its not everyone's cup of tea.

There you have it! What about you guys - what have you loved within the past two months? Christmas is coming up (and my semester break - finally!) so hopefully there will be more posts on my blog from then on. If you have any comments or even suggestions for posts, I would love to hear about them below!

P.S. Also realized that this is the last bi-monthly favourites of the year! Its crazy how fast time has gone! :o
