October Favorites

Here are just a few things I reached for most mornings in October:

I know, it's a small amount compared to previous featured favorites. Truthfully, October was so hectic for me that I turned to shades and products I knew that didn't require too much thought. Yes, I bought my first LMdB products last month for my birthday but I really started to use these items in October - see here. I rediscovered my MAC Gingerly blush, a warm peach bronze. This adds a really nice warmth to my complexion in the last few days of our Indian Summer here in the Bay Area. I also love this OPI shade, Get in the Expresso Lane, a deep greenish brown in a cream finish - reviewed here

I think the real standout products: Chanel Perfection Lumiere in #44 (reviewed here for La Chanelphile) and Chanel Impertinence Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss. I love this plum brown gloss - this is definitely a MLBB (my lips but better) shade for me.

This gloss is lovely when I don't want to go with the usual pink nude shade with a smoky eye. 

Here's a swatch line up of some of the products featured:

I'm thinking of playing with reds, wines and ruby to get myself ready for the Holiday season.

What were some of you hits or even misses this October?


  1. I really like the LMDB lipglosses. I need to work on my October favorites too.

  2. Hi Rola,
    I really like the glosses, too but now I'm even more curious and anxious to try out the lipcreams! I'm curious to read what your favorite Oct items were.
