October Favorites

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing with you my October favorite  makeup and skin care products! I usually don’t make this kind of posts, so let me know if you like it! 

Let’s get started! 
1. Syoss Ceramide Complex Super Shot


I am crazy for these hair products, like I said on my last post I moved to Austria recently, and the water here is DISTROING my hair! I have no idea why, but my hair feels so dry and sensible. So I am using this guy here to help to keep my hair healthy, and yes it’s working very well for me.

2. Essence Get Picture Ready Contouring Palette 


I really like this one, you get 2 contouring shades and one highlighter, lasts long, it’s pigmented but not too pigmented, I feel like contouring products shouldn’t be amazing pigmented, I prefer when the pigmentation is good but not insane, so I can work with it the way I like, and this is one of those products I love. The size is perfect for my makeup bag! 


3. Essence Stylish Volume Lash Extension Mascara 


You all already know I love essence mascaras, they’re amazing, and this one is my favorite this month! It has lengthening fibers that make my lashes look longer, and my lashes are really short. 

4. Maybelline Fit me! Matte + Poreless 


Yes! I am late, I think I am the only person who never used this foundation before, and I am loving it! I have normal skin and it feels amazing! The coverage is perfect, it’s matte but not dry, looks natural and comfortable! 

But let my share a problem with you, like I said I moved to Austria and it’s almost IMPOSSIBLE to find foundations for my skin tone, I understand that girls here have more light skin, but my shade was the darker shade on the whole store, and I have olive medium skin! Now imagine how difficult it is for black girls find foundation here in Austria, or Germany (because I already had the same problem to find foundation in German stores, even online). If you know any drugstore with products for medium/dark skin in Austria or Germany please let me know! I need it! Haha

5. Poison Apple and Vixen KissMe lipstick by LiveGlam 


They’re just amazing! I always talk about the KissMe lipsticks here, so you already know that I love it!! 

5. Benefit Gogo Tint 


It was my go to lip color for October, looks natural, I used just on my lips but you can use it as blush as well. 

7. Garnier SkinActive Mask


I tested a lot of masks last month and this one is my favorite, the skin just feels perfect after some applications. 

8. Look by Bipa Eyeliner Pen 


This is a product that suprised me, it’s really affordable, I paid something like 2 euros, it’s super fine, precise and really black! (Bipa is a kind of makeup stored but it just exists in Austria I believe)

9. Look by Bipa Matte Effect Top Coat


I die for matte nails, so I got this top coat, that makes all the nail polishes matte, drys fast and lasts a lot! 

So, those are my favorite last month products, she yours on the comments too! 

See you next post!

MOTD #1 Pink 

Today I created a look using the Think Pink Palette by Coastalscents (I reviewed it HERE). My camera is not the best but I took some pics of the look. 



On my lips I’m wearing KissMe Lipstick on the August shade Pink Cherry.

Coastalscents Think Pink Palette – Review and Swatches

Happy Saturday, beauties!

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you saw that I got a small pack from Coastalscents last week.

One of the things I got is the Think Pink Palette:

The shades on this palette are perfect for creating a “pretty in pink” look, on the  other hand, it keeps very versatil.

The packaging

The packaging is normal, simple, nothing special. It comes with a mirror, what I like. Another good point about this palette is that you can buy the hot pots separated on the website. (HERE)
