I decided to do a joint monthly favourites post, since throughout September and October I didn’t actually love a lot of things. I thought it would be better to combine the months in one post instead of missing them out completely and I didn’t think there would be enough to talk about had I decided to separate them!
Anyway, enough of my
excuses explanation, whatever you want to call it, let’s get started!
- Barry M Gelly Nail Polish
- Revolution – Brow Dual Arch and Shape
- Finding Audrey
- Halsey – Badlands
- Revolution – Unicorns Unite
- Barry M – Wine Not
- The Girl On the Train (Film)
- Lady Gaga – JOANNE
Barry M – Gelly Nail Polish
I fell in love with the colour of this nail polish, its such a pretty pink and probably the girliest looking nail polish I own. What I liked most about this gelly nail polish was the fact it lasted about 2 days before it began to fade. This nail polish didn’t really chip, it just fades at the tips of your nails, making it easier to just reapply the polish over the top. I used two coats of this nail polish and I was left with a smooth, glossy finish. I definitely need to purchase more nail polishes from the Gelly collection.
Revolution – Eyebrow Pencil/Felt
I have fallen in love with this eyebrow product. It has a twist up pencil on the one end and an eyebrow felt on the other end. I like not having to sharpen the pencil because of the twist up mechanism. The pencil is really soft but quite pigmented and fills in your brows nicely. The felt is so good at creating an arch in your brow and achieving a straight line after the arch. Plus this only cost me £3.50!
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella
This book was such a pleasure to read. It’s a romance novel that follows Audrey, a girl living with and struggling with anxiety as a result of bullying. Audrey befriends her brother’s friend, Linus and you get to read about how their friendship progresses and how Audrey begins to step out from her comfort zone. It’s a light-hearted book with lots of funny elements!
Halsey – Badlands
I cannot explain to you how much I love this album! It’s by far one of my favourite albums to date. I thought I would listen to Halsey after hearing her sing Closer where she featured with The Chainsmokers. I listened to a few of her songs from Badlands and I was hooked and couldn’t resist purchasing this album. My favourite songs are Hold Me Down, Castle and Strange Love. This album is so chilled and there’s not one song from it that I dislike. Plus, the album cover is just stunning.
Makeup Revolution – Unicorns Unite Eyeshadow Palette
To be perfectly honest with you this palette isn’t one of my favourites, however; this palette has some of my favourites shades in and so I thought they deserved to be mentioned. There are 18 shades, 12 shimmery and 6 matte. The eyeshadows that I have been absolutely loving are the shimmery turquoise and teal green colours. They’re so pretty and paired with a red lip you can create such a festive, Christmassy look! I’m all about the festive makeup. The other eyeshadows I have been loving are the purply/pink shades. They are so shimmery & so stunning! All the eyeshadows in this palette are so pigmented and have a lovely silky feeling to them.
Barry M Lipstick – Wine Not 175
My camera made this lipstick look a lot brighter than it is but this is definitely a deep coloured red. Id say it’s a tad bit lighter than a wine colour, despite what it’s called, but quite dark nonetheless. It’s a very smooth lipstick and feels nice and light on the lips. Its staying power is quite good too and I didn’t have to reapply this as much as I thought I would. What I liked about this lipstick is that when it does start to wear off it fades quite evenly. This colour is so gorgeous, especially for winter months.
The Girl on the Train (Film)
OK well I couldn’t even describe what this film was about to my mum without giving away spoilers, so instead of giving away anything important about this film I’ve just copied this synopsis from Google…
Commuter Rachel Watson (Emily Blunt) catches daily glimpses of a seemingly perfect couple, Scott and Megan, from the window of her train. One day, Watson witnesses something shocking unfold in the backyard of the strangers’ home. Rachel tells the authorities what she thinks she saw after learning that Megan is now missing and feared dead. Unable to trust her own memory, the troubled woman begins her own investigation, while police suspect that Rachel may have crossed a dangerous line.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film from beginning to end. It was sooo interesting, tense and very gripping. Some parts had me on the edge of my seat and at one point I was crying like a baby. There’s so many twists and I couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed this film. The acting was brilliant and I was super impressed! Definitely watch this it you haven’t already.
Lady Gaga – JOANNE
October 21st Lady Gaga released this absolutely stunning album titled Joanne, named after her aunty. This album is so pure and personal to Gaga that it just makes it so special. Compared to her recent albums this one is so stripped down and emphasises how incredibly talented this woman actually is & how powerful & stunning her voice is. Even the album cover is gorgeous and who doesn’t love that signature pink cowgirl hat? My favourite songs from this album are Million Reasons, A-Yo, John Wayne and Joanne.
And that is it for my September/October Favourites. I hope you don’t mind this combined monthly favourites post but had I done them separate they would have been quite short! Have you liked anything that I have included? If so let me know in the comments! Thank you for reading.
