Must you leave so soon, October? I know I say this every single time, but October flew by so fast. I feel like I didn't get a chance to do everything I wanted like go see The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze or The Headless Horseman in New York. Wah. I guess there's always next year. What did you guys do this October?

Onto my favorites. I feel like I didn't try out much in October. Me quitting my job and having no moola might have something to do with that but it was kind of nice to just go back to good old faithfuls for a little while. So let's check them out!

 Starlooks Mineralized Translucent Powder
I have been using this stuff like crazy! It's so finely milled that when I put it on to set my foundation, you can't even tell it's there yet it helps my foundation and concealer to stay put.

Soap & Glory Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream
My hands are ready for the cold, dry weather this hand cream! I picked this up for $5 from Sephora after hearing rave reviews about it (and how yummy it smells!). Well, the rumors are true! This stuff is the bomb dot com. It smells amazing; like marshmallows and a whole bunch of sweet stuff mixed together and keeps my hands nice and soft without feeling super greasy.

LUSH Creme Anglaise
Another cream I've been loving but this one I use for my body (arms, legs, etc.). I bought this about forever ago and I still have so much in the container. A little goes such a long way with this. I remember I first tried this in a store last year and fell in love but the pricey tag made me stay away for about a year. Finally, I sucked it up and bought it and have been happy (and moisturized) since! The smell is pleasing to me but it might not be to everyone. Also, I find this a little greasy sometimes so I find wearing it to bed or right after a shower are perfect times for it to soak in.

 Big Sexy Hair Blow Dry Volumizing Gel
Per usual, I fell in love with a product from my October Ipsy bag. I've always been a huge fan of Big Sexy Hair so I expected only the best results from this. I use this when my hair is damp and using a quarter sized amount of product, start underneath my hair and working my way up to the front and work it into my roots. Blow dry and wa-la: instant volume without feeling sticky or hard!

NYX Eye Crayon in Milk
I feel like this is one eye pencil every single person needs in their arsenal. It's so multi-purposeful (is that even a word? it is now.). I've used this as a primer on my lids to help make my eyeshadow pop, in my waterline to make my eyes appear bigger, on my face to give myself a ghostly white appearance for my skull make up for Halloween - the possibilities are endless!

Benefit High Beam
An oldie but always goodie! I've had this for quite some time and whenever I want a dewy or highlighted look, I pull this out! I really like the consistency of this and that I can blend it easily onto my cheekbones or mix it into my foundation.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette
I really, really need to do a review on this palette! It's such a beautiful and EXTREMELY pigmented palette. In all honesty, you don't even need a primer. I love this mix of colors and think they're perfect for fall.

 NYX Matte in Natural and Indie Flick & Maybelline Lavender Voltage
By now, I think it's safe to say everyone knows how much I love NYX matte lipsticks. They're so pigmented and never feel dry on my lips. Natural is just a really pretty mauve "natural" looking lippie while Indie Flick is the complete opposite and bright red. Maybelline Lavender Voltage is this amazing purple lippie that's supposed to be a MAC Heroine dupe and is unfortunately LE but if you can find it, grab it!

T I M E Phone Case in Essentials Black
First off, go follow Ashley Swagner (@ashleyswagnerxo) on Instagram! She's the mastermind behind Time Los Angeles. I already have so many shirts from there and needed to have a phone case! This one says "Thick Wings, Cherry Lips, Long Lashes, Diamond Rings" How freakin' cute is that? Also, this case has passed the drop test, um, multiple times.

Munson's Ghost Chocolates
An October favorites post cannot be complete without Halloween candy! Om nom nom! Munsons is ah-mazing and I mean, c'mon, how cute are those little ghosties?

What I've Been Watching:
Sleepy Hollow - Oh God. I love this show. AND it's from the same people that brought me Fringe (anyone watch that?)
Ravenwood - I thought it might quench my PLL thirst until January. I'm still getting into it but I think I might like it.
Naked Las Vegas - Oh sweet Jesus. I love these shows! They're so incredibly talented.

What I've Been Listening To:
Whatever She's Got - David Nail
Sweet Annie - Zac Brown Band
