October 2014 favorites

Hello lovelies!

I can't believe it's already November!(the fact that I'm skipping the cold weather makes it even more confusing).

Though things are still hectic, I still have had the time to find joy in a few beauty items. Better late than never, here are my October favorites:

I've finally gotten my hands on a few Milani Baked Blushes (you can find them in Canada in some grocery stores, I had seen them at Maxi back when...or simply online). I got 2 shades because it was Buy One get One 50% off (the drugstore deals here are insane...Every week you can find a selected brand 40% off or discounts on the 2nd item, it's pretty great).

I got Luminoso which is just this gorgeous peachy shimmery color (quite reminiscent of Nars Orgasm on the cheeks actually, but a bit more orangy than pink) and Delizioso Pink which is a hot shimmery pink shade (reminiscent of Nars Angelika). Though I wouldn't say they are dupes for the Nars blushes (color and quality), they definitely are the most surprising drugstore powder blushes I have tried. The pigment and longevity are quite impressive, and for the price, you just can't complain!

Following the buy one get one 50%, I got suckered in (ok not really) in getting two more Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains (I am OBSESSED whit this formula) that are super appropriate for this time of year.  I got New York Scene (a deep red) and Parisian Passion (a nice merlot shade).

Another thing I've been loving on my lips this month is actually a combo. I like to apply Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Let's Get Naked  and then top it off with Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Rose (and holy toledo that stuff tastes like a cupcake, and not in the nasty toxic fake way, it's legit delicious).

Been keeping things pretty simple this month, so that's about it...I also think I might have found a new drugstore favorite foundation but it's a bit too soon to confirm, perhaps there will be a post in the near future!

What have you been loving this past month? Don't forget you can always share on the Facebook page, there's a little community there for us to be  (not so) shamefully girly!

Talk to you soon!
