October Favorites

I still can't believe this, but November it's already here, but the weather has been so good all this time that it feels like it's September! Anyway it's time for my monthly favorites, and as you will see I didn't have lots of new favorites last month, but this time I will show you some of my non beauty favorites too, because the past few months I hadn't show you any. So let's start.
Apivita Creamy Face & Eye Foam Cleanser with Olive and Lavender
I've already mention this cleanser a lot the past few months, it should be in my previous monthly favorites but I completely forgot about it, but anyway I'm adding it now. This cleanser is incredible, so good that it actually helped my oily but dehydrated skin so much and now I no longer have dry patches all over my face. If you have the same skintype as me, or even just normal or combination skin, you should give it a try, I'm pretty sure you that will love it!

Burt's Bees Sensitive Night Cream
I used this moisturizer mostly at the beginning of October when my skin was a little bit more dry, and it helped a lot! It's a basic unscented moisturizer, with a very light texture like a mousse, but it hydrates really well. I wear this only at nightime because it can be a little too heavy under make up for my oily skin, but if you have normal skintype I think you will love it as a day time moisturizer too. It never broke me out, and as it says it's perfect for sensitive skins, because I've tried other moisturizers that are targeted for sensitive skins but they irritated my skin which for the record it's not super sensitive, so this one is a winner for me!

 Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 20
As for my makeup favorites, last month I enjoyed a lot this Maybelline concealer. It's my latest addition to my concealer collection, well actually no it's not, I recently got another one but I will show it to you in a future haul post. I have to admit that I have a concealer addiction, I always buy new ones, I use them for a while and then I move on to another, it's like I'm never fully satisfied, I have this problem with foundations too but with the concealers it's worst. So anyway back to the Fit Me concealer, I have to say that it really surprised me, in a good way, it's very hydrating, perfect for under the eyes. I don't know about you, but for me it's always hard to find a hydrating concealer even in the high end ones, so this one was such a good buy for the wintertime! My only problem is the shade, I wish that it wasn't that yellow, I prefer more peachy and beige ones, but nevertheless it's a great cheap concealer, and I think you should all try it.

NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Beige
Literally this is the only lip product that I've been using in October and I still do. I never thought that I would love a lipgloss that much, and I'm not even a lipgloss person, I believe that says a lot! Everything about it it's perfect, the texture, the color, everything. It's not sticky but also it's not watery, it has no shimmers which I love, and the shade is the perfect neutral pink that goes well with every single eye makeup look, what more can I ask? If you haven't tried it yet, please do! 

Essence Sweetheart Blush
This is one of Essence's newest shades, it's a very beautiful light pink shade, definitely not a cool toned one, it's more of a neutral pink with some beige undertones. It's the most lovely pink I've ever seen in a blush, and even though it's very light colored, as you can see from the swatch on my hand, it manages to really show up on my face and that's really surprising because I tend to have a problem with blushes in general, they all go sheer on my face. It's the perfect everyday blush in my opinion and the shade goes with every look, cool or warm toned. And the best part, it costs only 2.5 euros. 



Non Beauty Favorites
I think it was about time to start showing you some of my non beauty favorites again, and this time I have something that I absolutely loved watching for the whole month. I've always been hearing great things about Scandal but for some reason I was never interested in watching this tv show,  I think it must have been the fact that the show is written by Shonda Rimes who also wrote Grey's Anatomy, and I've never been a huge fan of Grey's Anatomy, I think it was way too boring and meh. But I kept seeing all these GIFs at Tumblr and it looked kind of intresting so I gave it a chance and I'm telling you, it only took one episode and I was hooked! Within a month I watched both seasons and now I'm watching the third. This show somehow manages to always keep your interest, it has never being boring and the plot it's getting better with every single episode. I also have a huge admiration for every single one of Olivia Pope's coats, my only wish is to own one of them in the future! So yes this was a HG discovery for the month of October!

And last but not least, it was impossible not to include the second part of Justin Timberlake's The 20/20 Experience album in my favorites this month! I loved the first one, it's still one of my most played albums in my playlist and the second part I think it's even better! My HG songs from this one are Electric Lady, Gimme What I Don't Know (I want) and Take Back The Night. It keeps the same mature sound as the first one but I think it has more of a beat, the tracks are definitely more rhythmic. Justin Timberlake is like a good old wine, he gets better with age. If you liked the first one you will love the second one too!




So these were all of my beauty and non beauty favorites for the month of October. What were your October favorites? Let me know!

  3. Το ρουζάκι πανέμορφο!! Δεν είμαι φαν των gloss αλλά πολύ πιθανό να το πάρω σε επόμενη παραγγελία μου από αμερικάνικο site, το χρώμα του είναι φοβερό και αφού δεν κολλάει κιόλας σούπερ, σιχαίνομαι τα κολλώδη προϊόντα χειλιών!

    1. You can buy the mini size of the Apivita cleanser. it's only 4 euros. That's exactly what I did, and when I run out I went and got it in the full size, it lasted me a whole month.
