Halloween was exciting and cool this year. Although I haven’t done any particular costume, I thought a burgundy lipstick would finish up my look.

The coat I am wearing on this picture is from Mango. It was out of stock in my size absolutely everywhere, but I was lucky to find it at House of Fraser and only one piece available! I got quite a few things lately, so fashion haul is coming up!

I curled my hair with my Babyliss curling wand.

As for the lipstick, I am wearing a blend of two.

I find that it is quite complicated to find a perfect shade of burgundy and red lipsticks. But these two bad boys work great for pretty much any skin tone and hair color. They are both in the shade 107( a universal burgundy number or something?!)), one is from Vivienne Sabo, one – from Rimmel. Although the shades are almost identical, these lippies are quite different. The Rimmel one is matte, hence it is drying but at the same time it’s long lasting and doesn’t smudge. The Vivienne Sabo lipstick is one of my alltime favourites, they are VERY moisturising, like a lip balm. But with a bright shade like this it’s not always good, because it does smudge. So what I do, I usually apply the Rimmel one, and then add a tiny bit of my Vivienne Sabo lippie in the centre of my lips to keep them hydrated.

I wanted to do an August favourites first, but then I realized I used pretty much the same stuff during Summer. So these are the products I enjoyed using for a while now and that I plan to continue using.

These are my basics and products I can survive on 🙂

First – the best BB cream for oily/combination  skin – Garnier’s Miracle Skin Perfector.  I got this in ‘Light’ and ‘Medium’ (they have only 2 shades), but now since I have tan I use the darker one. It’s great! Blends well, looks well and feels really light on my skin. It is also very buildable – sometimes I just put a tiny bit, but sometimes if I go out and want some more coverage, I use more of this BB cream and it definitely works well, better than most highend foundations I tried! So yeah, definitely thumbs up for another lovely Garnier product. And if you have sensitive, dry or normal skin, they have these BB creams for different skin types – just check your local drugstore.

Second – my Vivienne Sabo mascara, another basic product for me. It makes my lashes look thick and long, and has a more natural finish. If you want a dramatic look, just add more coats.

Third – my favourite Summer lip products, I’ve been using non-stop lately. Mac’s ‘Creme Cup’ and Rimmel’s nude in ’03’ look fabulous on tan skin. Plus these lipsticks are great quality. As for the lipgloss from Sephora – ’42 Precious Pink Jewels’, it’s gorgeous. I don’t know what else to say about it, because I have mentioned it in so many posts, but it’s really lovely. Great brush, delicious smell, lightweight non-sticky formula, vibrant colors and it definitely keeps my lipstick on so much longer. Best lipgloss ever!

And, finally, my last beauty favourite – my little eyeshadow palette from Sephora. I love the packaging, because it’s really small and fits in every makeup bag. The eyeshadows are great quality. Especially I love the highlighting shade, which looks gorgeous in iner corner of the eye. 

For my music favourites, I’ve discovered a new band, I have never heard of before. Architecture in Helsinki is an amazing indie pop band from Australia (yeap, I thought they were from Finland too at first :).

These are my favourite songs right now
