October Beauty Favourites (Better Late Than Never!)

Hello Hello,

November is upon us, meaning yet another month is over. I can't quite express how quickly 2012 seems to be going, however, the good thing is, Christmas is now not too far away - less than a month now before the first door on our advent calendar's will be open.

I've found and re-discovered some products this month, that I have subsequently used quite a bit, and thought I would share with you all.

The first is this Rimmel lipstick, from the Kate Moss Matte collection. It is in '107', a perfect autumnal dark lip for everyday, or evening, depending on the richness of colour applied.

What I love about this lipstick is how versatile it is. For a slightly dark, everyday look, it looks really good just smudged a bit over the lips to give a bit of colour. However, if you want to do the full whammy and go for a vampy, dark look, this provides a lovely wine colour to the lips, dramatic yet wearable.

This is just £5.49 from the Rimmel section of pharmacies. I bought this as MAC had sold out of a similar lipstick from the Marilyn Monroe Collection, and wanted an alternative. I'm so glad that I got to try out Kate Moss's collection for Rimmel - I'm not usually suited to Matte lipsticks but this one is perfect.

Next in my favourites is this lipgloss from Jemma Kidd. I'm not quite sure what's been happening with Jemma Kidd as a brand recently, I know they have had some economic trouble, but I'm not sure if this means they will be stopping making their cosmetics. Either way, I absolutely love this lipgloss in no.7, 'Blossom'. It's the perfect everyday pink gloss - but what makes it different is the purpley-blue minute sized glittery peices in it - which make my teeth look lovely and white and add sparkle to the gloss.

This looks amazing over different lipsticks - whether you're into loads of gloss or just a touch, I think this will be for you! It's so perfect for both summer and winter that I think it is definitely worth the investment.

There is also a lot of product in this, so I feel that it is cost-effective and the perfect pre-winter treat. I've recently been wearing this over my Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107, I just smudge some 107 over my lips to give them some colour, then apply this over the top - even my Mum who isn't into lipsticks & gloss said it looked nice!

So here is the gloss swatched, and the lipstick swatched again. Once I'd wiped this off after taking the picture, I was amazed by the amount of teeny tiny pieces of purple/blue glitter on my hand - I'd never really noticed it before!


ps. sorry for hurrying this, too many essays due in at the moment and thought I'd finished this and posted it xx
