I can't believe October is over already! Where has the year gone, seriously? Since time has gone by so fast, I haven't had a chance to be 'loving' too many products so today I'm going to keep it simple and sweet by sharing with you just three beauty products. My favourites won't usually be this small, its just that I have been too busy to try too many new things, and I also had to put a few products that I have been using/ testing out aside for another post so I can share my thoughts of them with you in more depth. Anyway, thats enough of me blabbering, lets get to it.

As you have probably have seen from my 'What I got for my Birthday' post, I was lucky enough to receive the Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette from my friends. Ever since I got it, I have been using it nearly everyday and its already become a staple item in my make-up routine. The packaging is a vast improvement from the first Naked palette, which would always end up getting dirty and was actually a little too flimsy in contrast to the great quality shadows it contained. The dark tones of the eyeshadows themselves are perfect for a smoky eye (as you probably guessed from the name of the palette!) but I also think the blues and purples makes for a great wash all over the lid for the winter months. This teamed up with simple face make-up and a dark lip is my go-to look for the season. I will be doing a more detailed review with swatches soon, so be sure to keep an eye out for that.

Another couple of favourites of mine are from Sleek. I've never tried a Sleek lipstick before this but now that this True Colour lipstick* in the shade Barely There is on my radar, I will be sure to head to the Sleek counter when in need of a lovely lipstick (lets me honest, it'll probably be next week). I just love the sleek and compact packaging which makes it perfect for your handbag for touch-ups throughout the day. The formulation is also just as lovely and is well-pigmented for an inexpensive lipstick. My lips are often dry and what I love about this is that it doesn't dry them out at all but instead it actually makes them look more nourished looking. I would describe the finish to be a satin one, as it has a little sheen but not too much that'll make it over-powering. Some days I just love to wear this only on the centre of my already lined lips, for that plump and frosted looking lip trend that is totally in right now. 

Another product of Sleek's I really enjoy using is their Eau La La Liner* in the shade Cocoa. Not only is this colour great for a more natural look but the formula allows it to stay put near enough all day. It is well-pigmented and really creamy on application. It also stays true to its claims of being smudge-proof, making it perfect the upper lash line but I because of the difficulty to blend it out, I personally find the colour to harsh for the lower lash line. For anyone looking for a new eyeliner pencil, I would recommend this one, especially because there are so many colours available for a budget price. 

So there you go, these 3 have been my go-to products as of late. I have been keeping my base make-up pretty minimal and have been really focusing on dramatizing my eye-look, something I have really been enjoying doing. Have you tried any of these products? If not, what look is it that you've been loving recently? Feel free to comment below.
