October Favorites ’18

Hello my pumpkins and welcome back!

Today, I am sharing with you my October favorites so all of the beauty products, fashion items, movies or events that I’ve loved this past month. If you are new to my blog, monthly favorites are a thing here, I publish them every month, I never miss one, maybe I did miss one once but well, I usually never miss one. This list of favorites also include mini review on each things I mention.

I really wanted to include some of the Colourpop products I ordered but honestly, I think they lost my package cause it still hasn’t arrived and my tracking number is not updating, I was even supposed to do a Colourpop Haul but well, it’s not happening anytime soon. Ugh, so frustrating.

Also, I won’t be able to publish anything this Monday because I have an exam but I’ll be back on Wednesday as usual.

Don’t forget to check out my latest post which is my 3rd halloween makeup look  and let’s get into this post

Emerald Obsessions Palette by Huda Beauty


I am so obsessed with this palette, I never knew I would love it so much, considering the fact that I never wanted to purchase it in the first place but the shades are just too gorgeous and unique. I wrote a review on this babe here, if you are interested to know more about it and the Amethyst palette.

Jumbo Eye Pencil in “Milk” by NYX Cosmetics


I randomly purchased this eyeliner for my third halloween makeup look but oh my god, I never expected for it to be that creamy and pigmented, I swear this is the best white eye pencil I’ve ever tried. It’s unbelievable.

Weather Collection Highlighting palette by Kylie Cosmetics


I know I’ve mentioned this palette a thousand times but I’ve recently discovered that the white shade is actually gold and it looks stunning on my skin tone. I was never interested to wear it cause I thought it would leave a grey cast and it was too light but Jesus no, it gives this gorgeous golden glow. I am in love.

Caudalie Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum


Okay, I know this skincare product is not cruelty-free but my skin is very problematic right now [I am still taking Roaccutane to get rid of my acne, I still have 50 days to go] and Caudalie does wonders to my skin. If you don’t mind using non cruelty-free products, I definitely recommend this one, it’s just amazing, it keeps my skin so hydrated, not oily whatsoever, and even. It’s perfect if you have really dry skin because it get rids of any dry patches and it keeps your skin so perfect ALL DAY. It contains only 30ml of product but a little bit goes a long way and I think this bottle will last me more than a month.

I apply this serum day and night, and I never miss my neck [never miss your neck, your neck should be part of your skincare routine if you want to look 20 when you’re 30]

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate


I’ve also included this oil into my nighttime routine because I’ve heard so many positive reviews concerning it and I don’t regret purchasing it because I am loving it. It’s an oil so it will keep your face oily but just for a moment because your skin will quickly absorb it. It has the same properties as the Caudalie serum: it combats dullness, dehydration and uneven skin tone but honestly, these are my main issues right now. When I am done with my treatment, I’ll start using more brightening and anti-aging products.

This oil also smells amazing so I feel like it’s always so soothing to apply it on my face.

Also, this concentrate is very concentrated so, three small drops can literally cover your whole face.


Captain Hat


I am sure you’ve seen this kind of hat going around on Instagram and Pinterest, it’s pretty famous and I am sorry if you are bored of seeing it but it’s just so nice and I got mine for only 10CAD, YAY.  I’ve been wearing it a lot since I got it, it just gives my outfit more of a Vogue Vibe, and it just looks like I’ve put so much effort into my outfits even though I didn’t. Amazing huh? In fact, I have a photoshoot today and I am planning on to wear it [I’ll share the outfit with you on my Instagram]

Movies/TV Series

A Star Is Born [2018]


I am going to include this in my monthly movie mini reviews but I had to mention it today because I absolutely loved this movie and I am obsessed with the soundtrack, Lady Gaga’s voice is just stunning and Bradley Cooper is just AMAZING. I have a lot of things to say concerning this movie but I’ll keep my honest opinion for the official review. Just know that I highly enjoyed it.

The Haunting Of Hill House


So I started this series and oh my god, I am so obsessed with it. The story is just so intriguing and builds up super well, the first episode is a bit boring but it gets better as the story unfolds. I finished it yesterday and I really hope there will be a second season. It’s a horror series but it’s not that scary honestly. Have any of you watched it? what do you think of it? I really want to know so tell me in the comment section!!!

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this post and if you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to follow my blog, it would mean the world to me.
