Hey everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Halloween and are now looking forward to the weekend. I seriously cannot believe it's November already and I'm writing my October favourite's post - where is this year going?! Over the past month I've been enjoying a few new products which are mainly beauty and hair care related. I love swapping up my makeup in the Autumn as it means I get to wear more berry and burgundy shades. I've definitely been using my fair share of these colours so I thought I would show you a few of my top favourites I've been using on a regular basis. I've also swapped up my hair care routine a little so I will be talking about some new amazing products I've been using!

NYX Pressed Powder Blusher in "Desert Rose" | LINK
 My first October favourite is a new blush that I picked up a couple weeks ago. This is NYX's Pressed Powder Blusher in "Desert Rose" which is a gorgeous burgundy/ deep pink shade. It's a perfect blusher for giving your cheeks a rosy glow in the colder months. One things that's really impressed me about this blusher, apart from the colour, is the formula! It's so pigmented that you literally need to tap your brush on to the product to give enough colour for both cheeks. Now I am quite pale skinned and I like to wear my blushers quite light, so I personally only need to use a small amount of product. I can tell this blusher is going to last me ages and I can't wait to pick up some more shades!

Soap & Glory Super-Colour Fabulipstick in "Pom Pom" | LINK | SWATCH
 Another one of my favourite products from the last month is a lipstick that you may have seen crop up in my Autumn & Winter Lipsticks post. This is Soap & Glory's matte lipstick "Pom Pom" which is a really pretty deep pink shade which a matte finish. I love this lipstick as it lasts all day (or night - it's the perfect every occasion lipstick) and it doesn't dry out my lips! This is my first every Soap & Glory lipstick and after trying "Pom Pom" I'm really tempted to pick up a few more!

Barry M Nail Paint in "Red Wine" | LINK
 Now I think I speak for everyone when I saw that deep red nail varnishes are pretty much the perfect shade for the Autumn time. I was rummaging through my nail polish box a few weeks ago and I came across this Barry M Nail Paint in "Red Wine". I remember buying this ages ago but never properly tried it out - until this month! This is the perfect wine coloured nail polish with a gorgeous glossy finish. In just 2 coats you have opaque and beautiful looking nails that last really well. I highly recommend this shade for Autumn and Winter as it's such a pretty shade!

Herbal Essences Bee Strong Shampoo & Conditioner | LINK
 Recently my hair has been feeling so dry and tangled, so I decided to swap my shampoo and conditioner for the Herbal Essences Bee Strong ones which are designed for damaged hair. The smell of this shampoo and conditioner is so lovely as it contains honey and apricot extracts! After just 1 wash my hair felt so much better and looked a lot smoother. After using these two products for nearly a month, my hair is in a lot better condition so I will definitely continue to use these! I am thinking of getting my hair cut quite short again though just so I can really get rid of the damaged ends. It will be quite sad to part with my long hair, but I think that my hair needs to start over and be healthy again!

VO5 Plump It Up Dry Backcombing Spray | LINK
My final favourite of the month is the VO5 Plump It Up Backcombing Spray which also seems to double up as a dry shampoo! As my hair is quite long, it can lack volume at the roots so I thought this would be a perfect product to help with my problem. After spraying this to the roots of my hair, I can definitely see a noticeable difference in the volume, plus it helps banish any excess oils that I may have -  a perfect 2 in 1 product! It also keeps the volume for most of the day which is great considering I only paid £2 for this!

So these are a few of the products that I've been really loving over the past month! I hope you enjoyed this post and hopefully found some new products you want to try. If you've written an October Favourite's post then please leave the link below so I can come and have a read!
