October Beauty Favourites!

October Beauty Favourites | Maddie's Beauty Spot

How is it almost November? Only another 6 weeks or so left of the working year which is very exciting! October favourites are officially here.


I didn’t really pick up anything new this month but I still had trouble narrowing down my favourites! My first favourite is the Schwarzkopf Leave-In Conditioner which I picked up in the last Priceline 50% off hair care sale. I only use this one on weekends as it’s the only time I leave my hair to dry naturally, unfortunately. I’ve noticed that my hair is more silky than usual since I have started using this, and I can put a fair bit on without overloading my hair. I’ll continue using and let me you know my full thoughts soon!

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Mother is such a nice shade! I was visiting the Gold Coast Sephora at the opening and came across the KVD stand. I already had the contour kit and know how good it is, so I decided to pick up a few shades of her liquid lipsticks to try out! You can read more about my little haul here. This is my favourite liquid lipstick formula at the moment, and I find it dries quickly, spreads easily and doesn’t flake off my lips but rather fades naturally. These are all must haves in any liquid lipstick.

The Tarte Blush Wheel is from the 2016 holiday collection from the brand. It came on sale in a special two-day sale at Sephora Australia and despite owning more blush than any human needs – I decided this was a worthy purchase. I’ve used it a tonne since getting it, with eight of the shades being blush colours and two being highlighters. I’ve got a post in the works comparing it to other blushes in my collection coming soon. The quality of this is really the same as other powder products from Tarte, I feel everything is consistent. The blush wheel should be returning at some point in November to Sephora, in stores and also hopefully online!

Rimmel Sculpting Palette* was a surprising love, and I had no expectations whatsoever after being sent this for editorial consideration. I think the staying power of all three powders is on par with any quality high-end product, and all three colours surprisingly suit me! I love using this trio and I think it will be something I consistently use because it’s so convenient.

Tartelette in Bloom is a palette I also picked up at the Sephora opening as well – and it has already featured in my August Favourites this year! The shade range is brilliant, the formula is long lasting and buttery, and I whilst I am not adventurous enough to mix rows, I find that there is more than enough variation to keep entertained. I actually think this is even better than the original Tartelette and I love that palette! I would highly recommend the Tartelette in Bloom palette – it’s a great size, sturdy packaging, and the colours are suitable for day and night which is hard to find in a palette.

What are your favourites for the month?

  • Ooh I’m so tempted to get the Tarte blush palette! It looks so gorgeous! Saw it in store but remembered how much tarte blushes I have at home I decided to pass on it 🙁

    • Blush is one of those things that you really only need a few, they last forever! I do feel a bit anxious at how long they will take me to use up… oh well!

  • Beautiful photo and great picks! Kicking myself for not getting the Tarte blush palette when it was released for two days… it’s gorgeous! x

  • I’ve tried the Rimmel sculpting palette when I borrowed it from a friend and I was really impressed with it. For some reason i’ve just forgotten to pick it up so this is a great reminder to grab it the next time I hit the drugstore. Great bunch of favourites!

    • I wonder if the Maybelline palette is as good as the Rimmel trio? I try to keep mine at the front of my stash so it doesn’t get lost! Thanks for reading 🙂

  • The Tartelette In Bloom palette is definitely one of my all time favourites. As soon as it launched and I saw it I fell in love, it’s just got the most beautiful range of shades and, for me, the perfect mix of mattes vs shimmers. If I lost all my palettes this would be one of the first ones I’d run out to pick up again.
