October has been the month of a pumpkin obsession... maybe it's because it's the season, but I have been buying lotions, lip products, shower gels, candles, body sprays, and eating pumpkin flavored food. Hopefully the obsession will fade with the start of November and impending Christmas season... October was also the month of trying new things- as in trying lip stick and a new mascara.
But before I get ahead of myself, here are my top five beauty favorites from the month of October.
Bath & Body Works always seems to feed into my seasonal obsessions, and this Fall, they came out with four new scents: two centered around pumpkin, one that is apple, and a plum mixed one. Of course, this season I fell in love with was the pumpkin latte and marshmallow. It smells so amazing, and me being me, had to grab a lotion, shower gel, and body spray. I love the lotion the most, due to it's extreme hydration, quick absorbness, and lasting scent. Btw, all fall limited edition scents are fifty percent off right now! Yes, run, don't walk, to your nearest Bath and Body Works.
two | Mally Beauty High Shine liquid lipstick in Mally Melon
Oh. my. gawd! I love this stuff! I am a chap stick/lip gloss type of gal, and own very few- like under three-lipsticks. I don't know why... Anyways, when I received this stuff in my October Birchbox, I tried it immediately. Needless to say, but I fell in love with it. I love the color! It's a very pretty pinky melon and goes great with my light skin tone. It's also shiny without being sticky- a feature that I have to deal with with most lip glosses, and stays put. In my opinion, it's the best of both worlds- lip gloss & lip stick.
three | Chap Stick in Pumpkin Pie Flavor (find at Target or Walmart)
Sure it's Chap Stick, but it tastes like pumpkin pie, and it's cheap- under $1. Enough said.
four | eos Lip Balm in Coconut Milk
To me, eos is the high society of lip balms. They are hydrative, taste amazing, contain natural conditioning oils, shea butter, and all those amazing ingredients that make for softer lips. Oh, and the sphere is different, and kinda cool. A few months ago eos decided to release two new flavors- Vanilla Mint and Coconut Milk to complement the six flavor varieties they currently had. I have a thing for new flavors, so I tried both- but the smell and taste of the coconut milk reminds me of lying on a beach in Tahiti (one can dream, right?).
five | Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara in Black
Honestly, I didn't think I would like this when I picked it up. I am super picky with mascara, and I have always had a "thing" for higher end- my current favorite is Benefit's Badgal Lash. I don't know why, but I just do. I grabbed it, along with eyeliner, on a buy one, get one free coupon. Once I did try it, I realized it was a contender for my beloved Benefit, at a fraction of the cost. It's goes on rather smoothly, stays on all day, and is easy to get off at night.
