My October Beauty Faves

October Beauty Faves
Hello Loves! I thought it would be cool to share with you the recent beauty purchases I've made and those that have become my faves. So let's just jump into it!

    Okay, so I only bought this body wash because Kerry (the BF, now you know his name) uses the Nivea 3 in 1 Mens Body Wash and I had a coupon for $3 off 2 body washes. There was a sale on the body wash also, 2 for $7 so why not try it. Let me just say that I think I am totally head over heels for this body wash! After one use my skin felt ultra soft. No kidding. I don't know what they put in this stuff, but my oh my keep doing it. Now I know why the BF is obsessed. (Must trust his opinion more, LOL).

2. Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat and Base Coat
    I was looking for a new base coat and top coat to try and stumbled upon this duo. I have to say that I think I have found my ultimate nail duo. I have been using my Essie base coat and Sally Hansen InstaDry top coat for months now. It was the best duo I had found in some time, but the Revlon beats these two hands down. Normally, when I do my nails, the mani last about 2 days (3 if I'm not working much with my hands) before it starts chipping. With the Revlon duo my nails don't start to chip until day 4! If you guys haven't tried this duo, you must!!! This is definitely on my repurchase list!

3. Maybelline The Nudes Palette
    I have been wanting to try this palette since it first came out. Lately I've been telling myself not to buy things all willy nilly. Been trying to keep a strict budget. When all Maybelline products went to 40% off at Rite Aid (a rare occasion) I jumped at the chance to get this palette. The original price was $10.99 but with the 40% off it was only $6.59. I also had a $5 Up reward, so I only paid $2.12 with taxes. Best makeup score ever!!!! I love this palette. It is a "natural makeup" kinda girl's dream. I think its a great alternative to the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I wanted the Naked Palette really bad, but I rationalized that $52 for eyeshadow was not reasonable. Now had that been mascara maybe. I used the Nudes for my Halloween makeup. This is a great all around palette. Perfect for me since I always rock a neutral/natural eye.

I've had this lipstick in my beauty arsenal for a while, but never really used it. I rediscovered it one day and decided to put it in regular rotation. It is a wonderful neutral for ladies with olive and bronze skin-tones. It looks very peachy/fleshy like on. The best image I can associate with this lip color is Angelina Jolie when she wears a neutral matte lip. Every lady should find a neutral matte lippie. Stop by MAC and try this one out, I'm sure you'll love it!

If you guys have been reading my blog for some time, you know I am a mascara whore. Yes, I fully admit it. If there's a new mascara coming out I'm jumping at the chance to try it. I feel mascara just makes you look so much better and more awake than any product out there! I was at Sephora at the end of May picking up my Beauty Insider birthday gift when I saw this little gem in the trial size area near the register. At only $10, I decided to try it and holy smokes I love it. Now I've had several mascaras in rotation since then, but for October I was applying this everyday! Dare I might say its comparable, if not slightly a bit better than the Benefit They're Real Mascara (and I'm all about that mascara). Ladies if you're ever in Sephora at the check out, please give this one a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!

So let me know what your favorites of the month are. I love finding new products to adore! Thanks for stopping by!
