It’s October Favourites time!

October favourites

Halloween is over and it is time to embrace the colder weather. Oh, and it means we are allowed talk about Christmas properly too now, right?

My October Favourites are strictly beauty related this month. For whatever reason there has been nothing else really floating my boat over the past few weeks.

October Favourites

I talk about my hair care favourites, skin care and of course some makeup too.

As always the actual Youtube video can be found on my channel here. But, you can watch it above too by just clicking on my mush there, Whatever you prefer πŸ™‚

You can find the L’OrΓ©al Fibrology hair products in Boots in store or online here.

The Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser is also in Boots in store or online here. Liz Earle are great with special offers and gift sets so keep an eye out if you want to try it.

You can watch my first impressions video on theΒ  Urban Decay Afterglow Highlighter in Sin here if you want to see it up close and in action

I also have the Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve up close in a post here if you want to see swatches.

The Kryolan Transluscent Powder is available on the Sunaura website here. You just have to scroll down to see it listed.

And that’s it for my October Favourites for 2016.

I was digging my somewhat simple makeup that day so I thought I would include a couple of pics πŸ™‚

The shadows are from the Too Faced Christmas Macaron Palette that is in Debenhams at the moment. And, my lippie is the Rimmel The Only One Matte Lipstick in ‘Trendsetter’. I have swatches of the lippie here. I’m obsessed!

Happy November , have a brilliant one πŸ™‚

It’s monthly favourites time again. I’m back to ramble all about my September Favourites for 2016 this time.

irish beauty blogger

Can you believe it’s October? The year is honestly slipping away at a rapid speed, I can’t keep up at all! My September favourites consist of makeup,skincare,fragrance and even a stab into the fashion world.

September Favourites

There’s the original Urban Decay Naked Palette. You can of course get this from Debenhams here.

The makeup mixing palette, I picked up in store from Penneys for €4. A little bloody bargain.

The Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss Palette. I have a full review and demo of this here. It’s worth a look, I promise πŸ™‚

The Clarins Instant Light Comfort Lip Oil. A definite splurge at €21, but a really nice treat for the lips. You can get it from Debenhams here.

Stella McCartney Pop Eau De Parfum. Summer in a bottle for me πŸ™‚ You can buy this from Boots or any decent perfume shop. Here’s a link to it on the Debenhams website.

Asian sheet masks are readily available from different sellers on eBay or Amazon. A Irish distribution called Natural Balance Global sent me the SNP ones that I have particularly enjoying. Here’s a link to their website if you fancy checking them out. They do come in boxes of ten though, I think that’s worth noting, in case you were just looking to try them out.

Then, the last of my September Favourites includes my cute little Zara bag. It’s €29.95 and I ordered it from the website here. May I add, Zara are killing it in the bag game. I just went on there to get the link for my bag and saw at least five other bags I really really want!

And there you have my September favourites for 2016!

I am kinda sad to be leaving the Summer behind, not gonna lie πŸ™‚

Anything you’ve been particularly loving lately?

Another month another bundle of random products and things. Yep, it’s time for my August favourites for 2016 πŸ™‚ Summer is just about to come to an end. I am completely ok with Autumn coming, Winter is another story though…bleh!

irish beauty blog beautynook

Anyways…my August Favourites bring a random array of goodies your way. If you are an eagle eyes reader you may notice that there is a makeup brush in my hand in the cover photo. First off well done for noticing πŸ™‚ And also it’s nearly become a tradition for me now to lose chunks of footage from my monthly favourites videos and the brush clip was the unlucky one that just disappeared off of my camera. But, it’s a dual ended blending brush from Blank Canvas Cosmetics with the E26 on one end and the E25 on the other. It’s on their website here and I really like it, it’s so handy!

The rest of my favourites look a bit like this.

August Favourites

You can buy the Adidas Superstar runners from JD Sports here. I’m nearly sure John paid €88 for my ones in June for my birthday but the listed price here is €95.

I have a whole post about the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Palette here.

You can buy the Dermalogica Hyrda Blur Primer here.

I have a video about the Garnier Micellar Oil infused Cleansing Water here too.

The Guns n Roses T-shirt is from the men’s department in H&M. I found it on the website here. It’s actually €14.99, I got my pricing wrong, apologies.

And then finally, my random phone ring thing πŸ™‚ I got it from eBay here and I regret nothing :).

August Favourites

So there you have it, if you need anymore info, by all means just ask. You can of course watch the video above on the website or you can watch it directly from youtube by clicking the link here.

 

I hope you have a healthy and happy September. Thanks as always for the support.

I am in disbelief that it is in fact August. But, the calendar on my phone has told me it is, and I must obey the mighty iPhone. This means that it’s time to look back over the last month and pick out some of the things I have been using and loving throughout it. Here are my July Favourites for 2016 πŸ™‚

irish beauty blogger

They are all beauty related for July, there’s no curve balls πŸ™‚

July Favourites

 

Initially I had the L’Oreal Nude Magique Cushion Foundation included too (which I have a full review of here). Something happened with the footage though and I lost it, so apologies for that! But I have been loving it. It gives you high spf, light but build-able coverage and feels really nice on the skin. What’s not to like about that πŸ™‚

irish beauty blogJuly Favourites

The July Favourites that actually made it into the video include:

The Nyx Vivid Brights liquid liner in ‘Vivid Envy’. I did a look with this bad boy here if you fancy seeing it in action.

Colourpop Supershock eyeshadows in both ‘LaLa and ‘Game Face’. I have a Colourpop haul post with these in it here. Bloody love these!

The Scandal Queen Fairydrops mascara. This is new to me, but I had to add it in because I have been loving it! You can pick it up from Cult Beauty here and I will do a full review on it very soon πŸ™‚

And then finally I talk about the Klorane products I have been using and loving. They are a plant based hair care brand. They have been around for years and I had never tried anything from them until now!

If you want to watch the video directly from Youtube just click here, or you can just click on it above.

There you have it, my July Favourites for 2016. What have you been loving lately? Let me know.

It’s monthly favourites time again here on Beautynook. It’s crazy, I spent so long not doing them and now my month doesn’t feel complete without rounding up some of the things that I’ve been using either freshly for the month or some old favourites that I’ve found a love for once again. So just click on the video above to see the things that made it into my June Favourites video πŸ™‚

June favouritesAnd like always, I’ll link anything I can here too, in case something takes your fancy and you want to know more. I know monthly favourites are more rambly videos so less info is given generally while I’m in waffle mode πŸ™‚

June Favourites

First up we have the pom pom sandals from River Island. These will definitely divide opinions I know. Unfortunately these were limited edition and don’t seem to be on the website anymore. Asos have similar styles here though if you want to check them out.

The Kind Shower Gel from Cocoa Brown. I have a full a post all about the new Kind range here, if you want to check it out.

I’ve never done a blogpost on the Lorac Pro Palette for some weird reason! I had to buy it from Amazon, but that was a couple of years ago now.

Mac Whirl Lip liner can be bought from Brown Thomas in store or online here

The Rimmel Kate lipstick in number 45 is here on the Boots website.

I have a full post on the Sleek Solstice Palette here and you can pick it up from Boots (hopefully) in store or online here

The L’Occitane Verveine Cooling Hand Cream Gel is on their website here. I actually thought it was more expensive. €10.50 is ok for a 30ml tube, right?

And….we’re done πŸ™‚

As always thanks for taking the time to click and watch. If you liked the video, you can keep tabs on when I upload by subscribing to my Youtube channel here πŸ™‚

Have you any particular June Favourites? Let me know.

I haven’t done monthly favourites since having my previous blog, so it’s literally been years now. But I thought I would try get back into it again and give you some of my March Favourites in video form.

irish beauty blogYou can watch my March Favourites on beautynook here by just clicking on the video above or you can head on over to my youtube channel hereΒ  and if you like it be sure to subscribe sure πŸ™‚

 

I don’t have many things that I properly loved for the month of March and I also didn’t go into much detail of the items. I just wanted to try my hand at a chatty style video, I hope that’s ok?

If you want to see the palette in action, I used it in my last Get Ready With Me Video hereΒ  (I used the lippie in that video too), and I have a full blogpost on the palette here aswell.

I reviewed the foundation also a while back here, but as you can see from the video, my thoughts on it have kind of changed, I’m a tad more fond of it now πŸ™‚

You can buy the fragrance from Brown Thomas here, if you’re curious.

And if you’re looking to sing along to some 90’s R n’b hits like myself, just search 90’s R n’ b over on Spotify…it’s so worth it, I promise πŸ™‚

Thanks so much for watching (and reading of course). I’ll hopefully try to do these every month if you like them. So, be sure to let me know if you’re into monthly favourites, or what kind of videos you actually do like watching. All constructive feedback is very welcome, I’m still very new to the Youtube media πŸ™‚

Happy April, hope it’s a brilliant one for you. Roll on the warmer weather!
