Beauty Edit: October Favourites

UK blogger beauty edit october favourites flatlayWith so many gorgeous beauty releases lately stepping onto the scene, I dread to think the damage I'll do in the lead-up to the festive season!  However this month has told quite a different story, I haven't tried many new products and instead found myself with just a handful of standout favourites.  In hindsight, I've been subconsciously reaching for products that aim to preserve healthy-looking skin, rather than glitzing it up with smokey eyes and a swimming pool of highlighter.  I'm saving that for December...
Clarins BB Skin Detox Fluid beauty blogger reviewFirst up is Clarins BB Skin Detox Fluid, a breathable texture targeting unbalanced skin in need of a healthy glow.  The natural-looking finish has been totally up my street and it lasts pretty well throughout the day too.  Personally, I've spent this past month wearing it by day, before switching to foundation in the evening (unless I'm at home and then you know the drill: make-up off, hair up, loungewear on).

Tangle Teezer Compact Styler Markus Lupfer c/o - This isn't an October favourite, it's a lifetime favourite.  I've been using detangling brushes by Tangle Teezer for the best part of four years now and they've 100% contributed to the healthiness of my long hair.  I use mine after washing my hair when it's at its most delicate, this way I limit as much breakage as possible by avoiding brushes less able to cope with tangles.  And thanks to Tangle Teezer, I've been treated to the gorgeous new Markus Lupfer design to add to my collection, featuring a glittery lip print, protective cover and innovative two-tiered teeth design.

Tangle Teezer Markus Lupfer Compact Styler beauty blog reviewBenefit It's Potent! Eye Cream - In need of a decent eye cream and having read glowing reviews about Benefit's It's Potent! Eye Cream, I picked up a pot a couple of weeks ago.  I put in place a proper skincare regime a year or two ago but failed to continue looking after my eyes (I know, it's terrible), so anything would be an improvement on that front.  I've got a lot of experimenting ahead of me to identify the perfect cream for my eyes, however for now Benefit's little pot of magic is performing well.  No drastic results, but my eyes in general feel much more comfortable.

If you swear by a particular eye cream, or have one in mind to recommend - let me know!

DKNY Eau de Toilette 30ml - A lovely little surprise came my way earlier this month thanks to Uzo from Style n' Beauty Lounge.  Uzo held a giveaway as a way of thanking readers and this fragrance-fanatic won!  I've found the scent to be beautifully fresh and a great way of perking me up in the mornings - because I am not a morning person.  It's a fresh and exciting scent; one that has a definite sense of modernity about it.  
DKNY Women Eau de Toilette 30ml reviewMii Cosmetics Moisturising Lip Lover in Fearless c/o and Alluring Lip Liner in Poise c/o - This is undoubtedly the sexiest lip duo I've ever tried, and it's a bold shade of red I was introduced to while recently filming makeup tutorials with Mii Cosmetics.  I modelled two looks, one of which focussed on Bridal Beauty and another that featured this fierce lip duo.  As much as I love wearing 'no-makeup makeup', I can definitely feel myself becoming more and more interested in playing around with options and colours.

Psst!  Mii Cosmetics' new makeup tutorials will be up on their website soon - keep an eye out.

  1. So many pretties Gabrielle! I had a Tangle Teezer way back when they first came out but I have no idea what happened to it since I use an argan oil infused wide tooth comb after washing my hair. The updated designs are so fun and I love the Markus Lupfer print on yours! The Clarins BB Skin Detox Fluid sounds great for lightweight, breathable coverage.

  11. I absolutely must try the Clarins BB Skin Detox. I've been noticing that, as the weather changes, my skin isn't looking quite as alive. This sounds like it would be the perfect remedy!

  12. I am really curious to hear more in the future about this eyecream. Please keep me updated. I use a very cheap one, it feels wonderful on my skin but now and then I get so tempted by this so called miraculous formulas.

    Have a great weekend ahead Gabrielle.
    Cheers,

  15. I had no idea that Benefit had an eye cream, good to know and I'm glad you love it so far! Also, that tangler brush is too cute, I love the size (so compact!) and it has the cutest design! I've never tried a brush like this before, so I definitely need to look into it, I can see why it would be better for your hair. Thanks so much for sharing your faves with us, beautiful, and I hope you have the best weekend ahead!

  16. How amazing is that Tangle Teezer!? (I couldn't live without mine!), I'm also a HUGE fan of anything by Clarins but I have to admit that their BB cream is one of my favourite products, I always take it when I'm travelling as the consistency is perfect for being in the heat!

  22. These lipstick and lip liner look so pretty, beautiful colors. I personally enjoying Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream, Gabrielle. If you get a chance to get a sample or try out at the beauty counter, you may like it too. It's very hydrating and perfect base for a concealer. Have a lovely weekend ahead. xx

  23. My skin could definitely do with a detox, although my fave here is the Markus Lupfer Tangle Teeze, so cool!

  24. I love the pattern on your Tangle Teezer, Gabrielle! I have tried Benefit It's Potent eye cream before but unfortunately it didn't work for me. It's very thick and makes my concealer crease like mad. :-(

  26. Yes! To team messy bun/hair and Lounge wear and ofcourse makeup free. This is how I look on those days I am at home too catching up on my blog or doing house chores. I am so glad you like the DKNY perfume,It has a really nice fresh scent. For the eye cream, I would recommend a tip, when you apply any eye cream try to massage the area with sweet almond oils to seal the moisturiser/eye cream over night while you sleep,I don't particularly buy eye creams but i slather on my facial moisturiser around my eyes and massage with almond oil I do this almost every day and it works wonders . Great post and hope you have a lovely weekend.

  29. I've heard so many good things about the tangler teezer! Your hair is beautiful Gabrielle, so that is definitely a testament. I loved Benefits It's Potent eye cream! It's really good. A blog friend of mine uses Fresh's eye cream. Be prepared for a sticker shock! LOL I haven't tried it yet.

  30. What a fantastic post! The first thing that caught my eye was this brilliant looking tangle teezer. I've heard so much about these hair brushes but yet to try, you've certainly tempted me to do so as you've been using these for four years.

    The Benefit Eye Cream is a gorgeous one, as you know I'm also a fan of the brand and really value both their makeup products and skincare.

    The vivid lipstick photographed by Mii is gorgeous, love the colour and can imagine it suiting you very nicely Gabrielle :)

    Lots of love,

  34. I've got to check out that tangle teaser. I'm really picky about my brushes and this sounds like something I should definitely check out. The pattern is cute and as someone with long hair it's important to not use anything that breaks off strands of hair. At the same time you still want something that brushes through and doesn't just glaze over it. Also that's a great vibrant red!

  38. Benefit was one of my first eye creams, I couldn't resist getting that cute pot!! I'm currently using one from Amore Pacific for depuffing and it's not bad so far! The Tangle Teezer is a must- bring when I'm travelling, I love how little space it takes up!!

  44. I'm really tempted to get a Tangle Teezer, they seem to change the lives of the people who use them haha. This design is gorgeous :) I feel like you can never really see a drastic result with eye creams. I'm using a Nuxe eye cream at the moment and I've been using it every day for months now, and I can't say I've seen any difference... It's hard finding the skincare product that will actually make a difference!

  45. I've been on the look out for a new eye cream recently so I'll maybe need to give benefit's a shot! Thanks for the recommendation. Love the designs of those tangle teezers too, I just have the plain pink one but it is definitely a lifesaver for my hair! X

  47. The perfume sounds really nice and fresh, something I'm definitely looking for as we transition into the colder months as there are days where I miss the lighter mornings and warmer breezes so I find that perfume is a good way to lift me back up. I also love that lipstick, that shade of red is exactly what I'm looking for for autumn. - Tasha

  53. I totally agree about the Tangle Teezer. My hair is about the same length as yours and I always brush it when I get out of the shower and I definitely think switching to the TT a few years ago has made all the difference to the health of my hair. I've had the same one the whole time but they have so many cute patterns now I might invest in a new one soon.
