October Favourites

I've discovered quite a few new products in October that I've fallen in love with and have to share!
I haven't had a chance to do a proper review of any of these products, as they are still new to me, but I am absolutely loving them and have been using them almost everyday.

1. Les Merveilleuses de LadurĂ©e Face Color Rose LadurĂ©e 
This blush just screams luxury. It is the most expensive blush I own, and I have no regrets spending AUD$120 on it. As it's not available in Australia (that I'm aware of), I got one of my friends who was visiting Japan to make this sneaky purchase for me. It's not only absolutely gorgeous with the (fake) petals, but the jar that houses the blush petals (sold separately) is so unique and pretty. This blush is also fairly pigmented, and the colour is gorgeous (swatch at the end of the post).

2. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette
I have yet to find a hourglass product I dislike. Although many people have criticised this palette due to its sized and hefty price tag in comparison, I don't share the same opinion. I think it's the perfect size for travelling, and since I have never finished a blush in my life, size is not an issue. The only thing I wish hourglass would do is make new blush shades and stop reusing old ones.

3. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked
This lipstick shade is a my lips but better. It's pigmented and non-drying. This has been my go-to lipstick for the past couple of weeks.

4. Too Faced Born This Way foundation in Light Beige
May or may not have gone to Mecca and gotten two sample loads of foundation before biting the bullet and purchasing this foundation. Born This Way provides ample coverage for everyday wear (medium), and I barely have to use concealer to cover up any blemishes, as the foundation covers most of them. It lasts all day on my skin, and whilst it's not the best at oil control, it provides a natural, satin finish.

5. Williams Pro Makeup Zero Powder
I've been using this finishing powder ever since I got it from bloggers united Sydney event earlier in the month. I love that this is not a flat, translucent powder - it has a little bit of a glittery substance that gives the skin a little bit of something something. It also smells nice, and helps with oil control. I'm not usually strict on using vegan/cruelty free product, but this is one of them is you only use cruelty free products. It retails for AUD$35 and can be purchased directly from Williams Pro Makeup here.
