Current Beauty Favourites | October 2016

19 October 2016

I've rounded up a few of my favourite and most used beauty products at the moment.

Midnight Muse Body Mist from H&M
This Vanilla and Patchouli Amber fragrance is amazing! It's a unique fragrance, with warm tones and is quite strong for a body mist. It's a lovely fragrance for autumn and it has great staying power. It's super affordable, at £2.99, compared to the pricey Victoria Secret's body sprays. The only other patchouli scented item I have are incense sticks so I was happy to see it in a perfume.

Brow Drama by Maybelline
This sculpting brown mascara is a holy grail product, and is the only product I use for my brows at the moment. I used to fill them in with a Rimmel brow pencil but I find it takes time and patience to get the right amount of product. Now I'm ready to go with a couple of strokes of this product through my brows, as it gives colour & sets them in place for the day.

Superstay 14 Hour Lipstick in Lasting Chestnut by Maybelline
This has been my go-to colour since April I think! Despite being quite a dark autumnal colour, it is the perfect brown for me to wear everyday. I've read mixed reviews on this before, with many people finding the texture too drying, but I haven't had any problems. It stays on all day too, maybe not 14 hours but I don't need to reapply after having my lunch!

Stay matte but not flat powder foundation from NYX
 I picked this up in the spur of the moment, when a new NYX counter opened up in the Boots where I live. My intention was to use this instead of foundation, on days where I want to wear less makeup, but now I use it as a face powder. Particularly on busy days where I don't have time to re-powder. It gives a flawless finish and makes my foundation and concealer stay put all day.
