October, or as we like to call it, our birthday month (in all honesty, it’s just another excuse for us to “gift ourselves” some well-deserved goodies)! Luckily for us, there are plenty of new and exciting beauty and skincare products for us to treat ourselves with this month. Check out our October Favourites and try not to splurge, it won’t be easy. 

International Brands 

Caffeine Eye Cream, The Inkey List

The key ingredient? The name says it all! Caffeine- not only does it help wake us up in the morning, it’s a diuretic which can help in relieving water retention, decreasing under-eye puffiness and dark circles. So basically, it’ll also wake your eyes up. Inkey has also added Matrixyl 3000™ peptide, an ingredient that will reduce the appearance of fine lines and smoothen out that area. This is an eye cream that actually works, a rare find these days. 

Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, Fenty Beauty

Fenty Beauty seems to be going in an all hits, no miss direction with their fantastic range of products and this lipgloss is just another great addition. An instant shine, non-sticky, shea butter infused formula with a peach-vanilla scent…can we get an Amen?

Caviar Stick Eye Colour, Laura Mercier

The thing we love about cream eyeshadow sticks is the incredibly easy application they provide, making it a lot simpler on us perfectionists to get the look that we want more effortlessly. The Caviar Stick Eye Colour by Laura Mercier does just that. Pigment-rich shades, crease and transfer-resistant, they are everything our eyelids need and more.

Get Even Rose Oil, Wishful Skin

As the summer tan fades and the fall weather approaches, our skin can tend to feel a bit dry and dull. This face oil by the one and only Huda Kattan’s skincare brand, Wishful Skin, will give you all the brightness and smoothness that you need through its unique blend of rosehip oil paired with 13 other skin-loving oils. Many reviewers have also noted that the Get Even Rose Oil significantly reduced their acne scars in a relatively short amount of time.

Soft Matte Complete Concealer, NARS 

If you’re familiar with dark circles, you’ll have definitely made an acquaintance with quite a few concealers in your days, in efforts to look ‘more awake’ or ‘less tired’. That’s where NARS concealers come into play. With having introduced one of the best concealers in the game, the Radiant Creamy Concealer, there is no doubt that this new Soft Matte Complete Concealer will not disappoint. A full-coverage, oil-free matte concealer that will instantly give you that blurring effect while benefiting your skin overtime with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and Vitamins A, C and E, this product is not one to miss. 

Local Brands

Crystal Facial Cleanser, EARTHOWLS

EARTHOWLS has quickly become a cult-favourite brand and this recently released facial cleanser is even more of a reason why. Gentle on the skin, this water-based formula with a range of natural ingredients aims to purify your pores by removing excess dirt and impurities and give your face a natural and healthy glow. 

Scarlet Fever Shimmer Gel, Naturere

Applicable for both your face and body, this Naturere shimmer gel will give you that natural, dewy glow that you’ve been looking for. Just a few drops and this aloe vera infused formula will leave your face and body feeling and looking hydrated. 

Lip Paint in Amber, Essentials

This all-natural, highly pigmented formula will have your lips feeling soft and looking fabulous all day. Rich in cocoa butter, shea butter, castor oil and jojoba oil, this lip paint will compliment your makeup look perfectly and this shade is our favourite as it gives our lips an uplifted natural look, which is what most of us are trying to achieve, right? Or as Queen Béy would call it, I woke up like this.

Super Emollient Shea Butter Cream, Luna

With our extremely busy schedules these days and the beginning of the change in weather, it’s important to have a highly hydrating moisturizer that will keep your skin free of cracks and excess dryness. This Super Emollient Shea Butter Cream from Luna is enhanced with glycerin to smooth out and support the skin’s natural renewal process. Fresh and soft looking skin all day, everyday. 

Curl Boss, Go Natural

Curly hair and flaxseed go hand in hand and this flaxseed based leave in curl-defining gel from Go Natural is living proof. Enriched with a star combination of hair-serving natural ingredients, Curl Boss will leave your curls looking bouncy with a soft and nourished feel to them.
