I feel like my October favorites has a good variety of products. The only things is that many of them are limited edition as they have been released on holidays or fall collections. I do know for example Kat Von D palette (launched in Spring) I recently just picked up in the Sephora sales section in October so keep an eye out as they may still be floating around!

Korres Cream Blush Stick (Pink, Natural, Coral)
I purchased these cream blush sticks while I was on vacation in Greece. They came in this value pack and I’m so glad I got them. They are blendable, wearable and dry to wonderful smooth texture.

Kat Von D Eyeshadow palette in Esperanza
I remember when this palette launched in the Spring and I though meh… Recently I was shopping with my friend Eleanor and I found this at the Sephora sale section for only $20. I was drawn to the packaging so I picked it up. Man, I am so glad that I did! The shadows are so smooth, pigmented and wearable. I wore it for my housewarming and received a lot of compliments. I am still amazed but these colors are not my normal neutrals that I lean towards but they do a great job.

Essie Nail Polish – Shine of the Times
I am sorry this is limited edition because it is such a amazing polish. It is called a “flakie” polish because it’s made of flakes of holographic shimmery goodness. It’s not just glitter. It is beautiful on all colors as a topper and dries evenly.

Tarte Pigment of Imagination Set
This came out early with the holiday sets and is a exclusive to Sephora. It’s currently sold out online but may be able in stores. For travel size the quantity is ample. It is a set better geared towards fair or light/medium skintones. It is a lovely light pink and comes with pearly highlighter.

Em Cosmetics Lash Gallery Dramatic Lashes in Black
First off, I almost never wear mascara. I find it always such a hassle! I received this in my ipsy bag a while back and for some reason I decided to try it out. I really liked using it and I found myself waiting to use mascara. It gives me good volume, I like the mascara texture and it is long – lasting without being a pain to remove.

NYX BB Cream in Natural (Light / Medium)
Sometimes you find out you really like a product when you put it away and you keep taking it back out again. My attempts to try new foundations was foiled by this bb cream because it provided such nice coverage and it is incredibly comfortable to wear. Heck! I’m wearing it right now. I would say the color match is spot on and it actually does provide enough cover to smooth my face. So more cover than tinted moisturizer but not cakey like a full on foundation. Yes I love it, they only have 3 shades but I would recommend it.

Marc Jacobs – Dot
I received this as a birthday present from E. I have been eying it for some time. It says the notes are red berries, honeysuckle, pitahaya fruit, jasmine, orange blossom, coconut, musk, vanilla and driftwood. I find it a bit fruity and a bit fresh. I don’t any of the notes to be dominant. So far it’s my favorite Marc Jacobs scent.

Milani Bedazzled Collection Lipsticks in Amethyst and Ruby
For some silly reason I got really excited and I ran out to get this lipstick in Amethyst because the whole blog-o-sphere was a twitter about this being a dupe for Rhianna’s mac lipstick. I don’t own the mac one nor do I want to but I really do like both of these lipsticks. I love the bold unique color, pigmentation and really comfortable to wear.

I think you know something is really indispensable when you buy it as soon as it is gone. I love this nifty little duo. Sure it is a small amount of product but the colors look great, formula is on point and it is only $12 at Sephora. This is the perfect compact lippy for travel.
