It has been a busy summer! With all of the great beauty events I’ve gone to this summer, I have lots of October favourites that I’d love to share with you. If you’re out on the market looking for something new, take a look here to see which items you might want to add to your beauty routine. Almost all of the items below can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. 😉
October Beauty Favourites
I’ve been using Stila cosmetics for a few years now and I haven’t come across a Stila product that I didn’t like. I’ve been obsessing over these Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer and the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner.
The liquid lipstick is true to colour and speaking of colour comes in so many different shades. It’s staying power after eating/drinking blows my mind. I never need to retouch my lipstick.
I love how the concealer is on top of the foundation for easy access. Excellent for travelling! The coverage is medium coverage and when I want more coverage I apply a pressed powder on top or in certain areas.
When I wash my face, the only thing left on my face is always my Stila stay all day liquid eye liner. The tip is fine, which is great for the corners of your eyes and perfect for drawing out a cat eye. Just use a waterproof eye make-up remover to get it off.
It has been a long time since I last used Kiehls products. I was in dire need of a good scrub for the face and I was recommended this micro-dermabrasion one. I’ve used it about 5 times now and it’s so awesome! My skin feels so smooth after. I make sure to use it before going to bed so that I’m not wearing make-up immediately after. It’s not something that is recommended but just my own preference when getting rid of old skin cells, I like to keep my face clean and fresh for good cell rejuvenation process.
I went to a couple of events last month where I had my nails done with Orly nail polish and I loved it! The selection of colours are awesome and the manicure lasted a lot longer than I had expected. Two weeks at one time and a week the second time. I’m guessing there’s a difference due to the busier week I had of house chores and not wearing gloves.
I did an entire post on a new collection that came out in Arden that I was obsessed with. I highly recommend their lipsticks just for the fact that my lips felt great during the wear and even after.
This is a beautiful scent! I actually collect fragrance. Kept in a cool place, away from the sun to ensure I have them for as long as possible. It’s an odd thing to collect. The obsession began when I started working at Shoppers Drug Mart at 16. So back to the fragrance: the three notes in Gucci Bloom are, Rangoon Creeper, Jasmine Bud and Tuberose.
I had never heard of Rangoon Creeper before so I did a little research. I found that it’s a vine with flowers discovered in south India, and that it changes colour from white to pink, and finally to red when it blooms. That’s just so beautiful to me! So next time you’re at Shoppers Drug Mart, make sure you smell this.
This classic florals scent is giving me all the Fall feels. 🍂Gucci Bloom has these key notes: Rangoon Creeper, Jasmine Bud and Tuberose.

I love these 100% Natural Bath Bombs! Minus the sparkle on top, the bath bomb itself is natural. Made in Canada too!

LANCOME MONSIEUR BIG MASCARA
I’m obsessed with this mascara! You’ve probably seen and heard me rave about this mascara enough times on Instagram stories. Its so perfect! It’s great for thickening and lengthening. No clumpy lashes and I swear they look as if I’m wearing falsies.
