Here we are again, another selection of things I’ve been loving last month. It was so easy to choose October’s monthly favourites, it really didn’t take much thinking about. So let’s get started with the first item.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt highlighter in Mean Money
I love highlighters and I admit that I have way too many, but this one has been my go-to this month. It’s not a ‘bam!’ here I am sort of a highlighter, it’s subtle but it almost melts into the skin giving such a flawless finish. It’s so finely milled and buttery without big chunks of glitter. I do love the other highlighter in the duo which is Hustla Baby, but it just doesn’t give that glow from within look. I’ve already hit pan on Mean Money and I cant say I’ve hit pan on any of my others. I would definitely repurchase once it’s gone!
Wet Brush Pro
For as long as I can remember I’ve been using the Tangle Teaser, but as my hair is growing longer and longer, the knots seem to be getting more and more. Brushing my hair with conditioner in is a chore, a massive chore that takes a good 6-7 minutes to brush through. I feel also that the tangle teaser just can’t manage my thick hair and just glides over it rather than through it. I’d heard of the Wet Brush but thought it was probably just a gimmick that was probably no better than the tangle teaser. Oh, how wrong was I?! I ordered the one for thick hair. Brushing my hair has never been so easy; Knots, what knots? So if you have thick unruly hair, this brush will do you wonders.
Chanel Chance Tendre
I haven’t reached for this fragrance in a while, but I put on a top that I’d previously sprayed it on and fell in love all over again. Its fresh and fruity and has that feel of luxury to it.
L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Clay
I’m not a huge fan of dry shampoo, If my hair feels greasy, I’d rather just was it tbh, so I don’t use it a lot. A can will last me months. Most dry shampoos make my hair white which really isn’t a great look for black hair. It’s most likely why I avoid them. However I saw a can of this L’Oreal Elive Clay dry shampoo and liked the idea of the clay, I don’t know why It just appealed to me. Honestly, it is so so good! No white residue, no matter how excessive you spray it, it disappears and volumises your hair. Most shampoos make my hair look more greasy if anything. I love this one and will be sticking to it. It smells nice and actually does what its meant to.
Nyx Liquid Suede in Sandstorm
NYX do some of the best lip products I’ve used and they continue to up their game. I had wanted this shade for so long but it was out of stock for what seemed like forever, both in-store and online. Eventually, I managed to find one mixed in with other shades in-store. I was literally so excited! It’s a cool-toned grey-brown. I recently wrote a post on my top favourite liquid lipsticks and this was one of them. You can see what it looks like on HERE.
Thanks for reading my October Favourites and have a great month
