Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

GeorginaBT_0-1698078215304.png

 

Boo! 👻🎃 It’s spooky how quickly October is flying by, BIC. I’m curious what new products all of you have been trying this season – personally, I feel like this time of year is one of the most exciting when it comes to beauty releases (holiday kits, anyone?)! I’ve been picking up a couple things I see trending at Sephora here and there, while also shopping my own stash and checking off my “been meaning to try this!” list.

 

Here are some of my October favorites:

 

Handing the mic to you! 😊🎤 The Beauty Insider Community would love to know: what skincare, hair, makeup, fragrance, and wellness products have you been loving most this month? Be sure to use the “#” symbol to tag any products you mention!

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

What a set of beauties @missjeanie! NARS Sheer Glow is a blast from the past and one I think stands the test of time, like many NARS products - I'll never tire of having a mini version of their concealer in my stash. Speaking of concealers, I feel like I've picked up nearly all the new ones that have been released and ND is on the list, just as soon as I have a chance to do a line 😉 of swatches to get a shade match. Hmmm, this is missjeanie approved in the highest form; I am feeling tempted to get into a store sooner rather than later based on your praise for it. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@itsfi I just can't stop using the ND... I've tried to go back and use the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Triclone Skin Tech Hydrating + De-puffing Concealer with Fermented Arnica 02 ... since so many love it and while it's nice, I just prefer the ND.  I find I can really get away with using the lightest of coverage skin tint and still have the ND concealer mesh well with it.  The thicker texture threw me off but the blend out is so nice!  I'm hoping to see a concealer round up review with all your new purchases???

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

I feel like the ND is the one for you @missjeanie! Which is great! Especially for an under eye concealer - that area has a lot of things going on, and on top of that, it’s a delicate area too. Love hearing that it plays well with a light skin tint. ♥️ What have you found works best with the ND to blend it out - your fingers? Brush? Beauty sponge? Some combo of the above? 

You got it - concealer round up review! I’m making a note on my phone - because at this age, I’m bound to forget if I don’t! 😆 I should have a good pool of test subjects. 😉 I’m out for a bit with deadlines and an upcoming work trip but I’m already thinking about how to compare and test ‘em all. May take a couple of the new ones with me to see how they hold up to travel and various climates. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@itsfi I've been using a beauty blender, it's how I tend to prefer doing my foundation/skin tint as well.  Though, maybe I should test out a brush and fingers for science though!  

I'm always interested in a concealer round-up/review!  There are so many out there it's hard to keep track and try them all, so I fully support those that can lead us in the right direction.  I'll be keeping an eye out for your reviews!!!

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@danielledanielle I didn't have super high hopes for it when I first picked it up.  I don't know why, but I just thought of ND complexion products as 'meh'.  I thought for sure the HAUS LABS BY LADY GAGA Triclone Skin Tech Hydrating + De-puffing Concealer with Fermented Arnica 21 ... was going to be more my style based on reviews.  While I like the Haus Labs, it's just not on par with the ND.  I'm now wondering what other complexion products of hers I need to try!

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

 The holiday sets that keep coming out are sooo tempting @GeorginaBT, I know I am planning on purchasing the new Danessa Myricks Beauty Dynamic Chrome Duo for Face & Eyes this sale. What an irresistible deal! 😍

 

 For my monthly favorites, I have been using a lot of my same faves this month as previous, but I did find a new love that I'm sooooo thrilled too talk about.

 

 I had two samples of the Oribe Gold Lust Transformative Hair Mask 5 oz/ 150 mL.  What can I say about this, just wow!! It has been incredibly hydrating. I have long, dry and color treated hair. Using this mask this month was a lovely treat of T.L.C. Everytime I use this I fall in love with the softness of my strands.

And of course, I am buying a bottle of this during the sale. ☺️

 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

Ok @CynthieLu ... is it time for me to give Oribe a try? 😃 I am always open to new products to improve my hair health (I'm a chronic flatiron user), and I've heard nothing but good things. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@GeorginaBT I had two foils I had been holding on to, I guess I was saving them for when I really wanted a good hair day. But than I thought that was silly, I should just use them. 😊 So glad I did! Its been a total treat. If you can get your hands on a sample, I think you'd definitely enjoy it. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

I love these nose pure patches.  They deliver on what they promise.  I know it is gross but nothing like peeling it off and seeing all the gunk from your nose.    

 

I got them at Ulta

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@CorgiMommy They may be a bit gross, but... I totally understand the satisfaction of seeing the gunk too!

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

I could not agree with you more @GeorginaBT about all the beauty releases that come out this time of year - talk about being a kid in a candy store, right??!! 😍 I spy some great beauties in your monthly favorites - the Saie lip oil feels good on the lips and I bet that shade looks marvelous on you! How did I miss that Drunk Elephant mask? Seeing it here is making me wonder whether Drunk Elephant Face Mask Parade Trio should find its way into my shopping cart? 🛒 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@itsfi Kid in a candy store 💯😅 Oooh, I've only done trial sizes of the Babyfacial and F-Balm! If you like them/are looking to try them, def think this Drunk Elephant set could be worth it ... 👀 The Brightfacial mask has been keeping my skin really smooth. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@GeorginaBT, Babyfacial used to be one of my favorite exfoliating masks. I've been a lot more gentle on my skin and have not been using exfoliating masks very often (and definitely not as often as I used to), but it's always good to have one in the skincare stash.You never know when you'll need a good, deep exfoliating treatment, right?! I was in store the other day and had an opportunity to speak with a Drunk Elephant brand rep who shared that F-Balm makes a great makeup primer for dry skin. I will definitely be giving that a try! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@GeorginaBT thanks for the suggestion 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

Here are my October favs! I have been focusing more on skincare as winter arrived where I live and I was hoping I could keep my skin moisturized this winter!

@ather I've heard such good things about the Rhode Glazing Milk!  It sounds really nice.

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@CookieGirl1 It’s so good! So far my skin loves it! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@ather Everyone who's mentioned trying it has been so positive about the Rhode skincare line in general.  I might need to pull the trigger soon with all the glowing reviews. 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@missjeanie  That’s awesome you are hearing great things! I find it works well on my skin! 

Re: Monthly Favorites: October 2023 Edition!

@ather Oooh I got the Summer Fridays moisturizer as gratis recently and I'm excited to try it once I'm through with my current moisturizer! I have a feeling like it'll be a good one for winter.
