October / Monthly Favourites: Health, Makeup, Beauty & Skincare!

Happy Halloween, Everyone!

It's been a while since my last favourites post which was back in August (linked here). This month I had some real stand-outs, so I wanted to share them with you.


*Pacifica Natural Minerals Eyeshadow Palette
I haven't had it for the whole month but I've been using it non-stop since I got it. I was lucky to win this from my Blogger friend, Amber from Day Dreaming Beauty! This palette is so versatile and is great quality. It's smooth, pigmented, and easy to blend. I love the colours in this palette. I can get so many different looks from it. Thanks again, Amber!

Milani Powder Blush in Romantic Rose
This is the perfect "go with everything" colour! It's a very natural looking colour, it has a bit of nude, pink, and mauve but it's very neutral. It's very smooth and pigmented and lasts all day. (Full review with swatches linked here).

Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands
I did a full review with swatches on this lip crayon (linked here). It's the perfect everyday colour for me! It's a nude with some pink and mauve. A MLBB shade. It's so easy for me to grab and swipe some on before heading out and it goes with every look! LOVE! Okay, I LOVE all of these!

*Mirenesse Curl Mascara
You know when you discover a great mascara and then it just keeps getting better and better every time you use it!? Well, that's this mascara. So, big thanks to another Blogger friend of mine, Kats from Kats Colourings for sending me this sample! The only bummer, I think it's an Australian brand and it's not available in Canada.


*Leven Rose 100% Pure Organic Morrocan Rose Floral Water
I did a full review of this product (linked here). I love that it only has one ingredient and I've finally found a rose water that doesn't break me out. I'm spritzing all the time... after cleansing, between layering skincare, over makeup, as a refresher, and on makeup wipes that aren't so saturated anymore.

*ElaSpa Vegan & Cruelty-Free Anti-Aging Cream Forte
I also did a full review on this product (linked here). This organic, professional skin cream has done wonderful things for my skin. I rarely get much firming from a product but this one really delivers. My skin looks better from it in so many ways.

*Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
I received this product for review purposes (review linked here). It wasn't the eye cream that I wanted to test but it's what I received and I'm so glad that it worked out this way! It's a fabulous eye cream. You need such a tiny amount, so it's lasting forever. It's very emollient and I notice an overall improvement of my eye area, especially the hooding of my eyes, although it seems temporary for now. #olayeyes


Tru-Nut Powdered Peanut Butter
I found this product at Winners/TJMaxx/Marshalls and featured it in a haul (linked here). I loved it so much that I went back and bought 2 more. I have it in my smoothies with my immune boosting Cococeps every day. It tastes great and adds some nutrition and protein. I'm going to try adding it to my oatmeal too and see how that goes. You can also bake with it.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my favourites in October. What are your recent favourites?

  1. I was waiting for your thoughts on the Pacifica Palette! I love this brand but have yet to try their eyeshadows, glad you loved it. Time to add some to my cart ;) Tal xo

    1. I wasn't sure what to expect with the Pacifica palette but I was so pleasantly surprised with it. I really love it, the colours and formula! xo

  2. I'm totally obsessed with the Milani blush!

    1. Same colour? I am too! I'm wondering about the other colours now. hehe

  3. Milani blush is very pretty, luckily Mlani recently launched their website in Australia and we can buy it now. It is sad that mirenesse is not available in Canada and you can not buy your favourite product.

    1. So glad you guys have Milani now, we just got them recently too. Mirenesse really makes a great mascara, I'm sure I'll find something good that's affordable.
