October Favorites!

I'll be honest, this post is going up later than I wanted it to. I'm just going to blame midterms. Here are the things I've loved in October.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation
This foundation has been in my collection for quite some time, but I never used it consistently until this month. I originally bought it in the spring and didn't like the matte look that it gave me, but now that the weather has changed I decided to give it another shot and liked it. I like that it gives me a matte but not flat finish. Throughout the day it makes me look a little dewy but not oily, thus; I don't feel the need to touch up. The only thing that I don't like about this foundation is the shade range. I originally bought the shade 101 Classic Ivory (which is my shade in True Match) and it a little pale for me, so I tried the shade 102 Shell Beige and that one seems to work better but I find it a little too yellow-toned. I might try mixing the two shades to see if that gives me a perfect match. It's a great foundation but I think the shade range isn't accurate.

This month I've worn a lot of warm-toned makeup such as: MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul, MAC Velvet Teddy and Chanel Adrienne.
Warm Soul is the perfect blush to use to define the cheek bones. The shade is a bronzy beige with shimmer it in. For me, it acts as a blush, highlighter and almost bronzer hybrid because it gives my cheeks the warmth of a bronzer, the glow of a highlighter and the color of wearing blush. I think it's a great blush to have in your collection.
Velvet Teddy is a matte warm-toned beige. On my lips it leans a little orange and I think it's great for this time of year because the color makes me think of leaves.
Adrienne is a warm-toned nude similar in tone to Velvet Teddy but the formula is creamy. It's also more of a peach-toned nude. It's a great everyday shade and I've been wearing it more than I thought I would.

Antipodes Aura Manuka Honey Mask
This face mask has been on my wishlist for the longest time. I finally decided to purchase it this month. I'm so glad that I did because using it during midterm season was the most relaxing thing that I did all month. It has a pleasant scent and doesn't irritate my skin. It also made my skin look so glowy and healthy afterwards. It also made me feel calm. I would definitely recommend this product and it is completely worth the hype.

TV Shows:

Sassy Go Go/Cheer Up! (Why do k-dramas have multiple names?!)
This has become one of my favorite k-dramas of all time. It explores real issues that people go through in high school. Not only does it explore the pressure of going through high school, it also addresses mental illness, self-harm and both physical and emotional abuse. There are some dark moments, which might offend some people, but there are so many great moments of friendship and love as well. There's also cheerleading involved but the serious topics often outshine the cheerleading aspects. The leads are my new otp. It only has 12 episodes, which I am extremely sad about. I watched the finale right before writing this post. There are some story lines that fell short but everything was addressed in the finale. I would recommend it to everyone, even people that have never watched a k-drama before but beware that heavy topics are involved. It will make you both smiling and crying in the span of two minutes, but the finale left me with tears of joy.

Sincerely, JoJo. ♥
