October 2013 Favorites

October 30, 2013

Another month down, so it’s time for monthly favorites. I have to say, October is my favorite month of the year…not only because it’s my birthday month, but I just generally enjoy this time of year. Leaves start changing colors, the weather starts to get a bit cooler–unless you live in West Texas, then you get some bipolar weather–and I can’t forget about pumpkin flavored everything, did I mention it’s my birthday month?! This month definitely flew by…sad day!


Okay, enough of that, let’s get on with my favorites for the past month.



October Favorites



Urban Decay Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer

 I have a couple of tinted moisturizers and I prefer this one over the other. It’s a bit thicker in consistency, but it blends well. I also like that it has SPF 20. I use a little bit of this under my foundations…sometimes…or alone when I’m not going to be doing much.


Model In A Bottle Finishing Spray

I’ve had this finishing spray for quite some time now, but don’t reach for it on a daily basis. Unless I know I’m going to be out for long periods of time and need my makeup to stay put. This does the job, my makeup won’t move all day with this spray. However, I don’t enjoy the scent so much and the nozzle sprays a little weird, but they recently re-did their packaging, hopefully they fixed that problem.


MAC’s Blush in Fever

The color you see in the packaging is the color you get when applying it on. So a light, I mean light hand is necessary. It can be a scary color, but it looks gorgeous on. Great for fall and winter.

ELF’s Facial Shimmer Whip in Lilac Petal
This is a great highlight! I absolutely love this pink-ish shimmery highlight. It does not have chunks of glitter, it just gives a great glow to the cheekbones. Amazing for $1.

Wet n Wild’s Eyeshadow Trio in Silent Treatment

I have found myself reaching for this trio quite a bit this month, this one and Walking on Eggshells have to be my all time favorite trios from Wet n Wild. If I’m in a rush and want a quick look, this is usually what I reach for.


Jordana’s Fabuliner in Black

This liner is amazing and the price is great as well. The felt tip is quite sturdy and works well when doing a winged liner—in my case, when I’m ‘trying’ to do a winged liner.


Benefit’s They’re Real Mascara

I had a sample of this mascara a while back and I loved it, but never thought to repurchase it. I just kind of forgot. I was reintroduced to this magical mascara a few weeks back when I won a giveaway Jackie from FiveTwo Certified was hosting–thank you Jackie!! I can’t believe I forgot how much I love this mascara!

ECO Tools Angled Crease Brush
I picked a travel set awhile back and have fallen in love with the quality of these brushes. They have not shed at all and the are really soft. I showed this particular brush a lot of love this past month, it’s great for packing in color to your crease.


NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream

 I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m not a huge lipgloss lover, I have nothing against them…it’s just hard finding glosses that aren’t overly sticky. However, I think I found my holy grail glosses, these are amazing! I have several shades, but this one got the most love this month.


Be Delectable Hand Cream in Strawberries & Cream

 I received this delightful hand cream in my Ipsy bag this month, and I have been IN LOVE with it since. It smells delicious! I suggest you all go to your nearest Kohl’s and purchase this by the loads…bye, bye B&BW….okay, just kidding, I can’t say bye to my B&BW lotions forever!


Essie’s Merino Cool

 One of my absolute favorite polishes, ever! If you don’t own this color, you should! It’s gorgeous on everyone! Seriously, you need this color in your life ASAP!

*Here is a picture of Merino Cool…of course, with an Iced PSL in hand!*

So that about does it for my monthly favorites.

What have you been loving this month? I’d love to know.

Until next time beauties, thanks for reading!

Hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!

xoxo, Lily

*Lily’s Life*

-I loved my Zoya polish in Giovanna until last night! When I took it off, it transferred to my skin and stained it, badly! I soaked my fingers in acetone, washed my hands a ton of times…and no such luck! Needless to say, I’m walking around with emerald fingertips!

-At least now I have a pretty polish on my nails! 🙂

-Just when I thought I was getting over my sore throat and cough…I get the sniffles and a sinus headache.
