My Monthly Favourites - October 2014

Hi guys. As always, I cannot believe yet another month is has flown by. In a few days, Halloween will be over and we will then be turning our attentions to Christmas and all things festive! Seeing as I haven't done a favourites post since August, I thought that it was about time for me to do another and share with you all of the products that I have been loving lately. Let's get started!

Herbal Essences Uplifting Volume Conditioner - £3.99
After running out of my John Frieda volume conditioner, I wanted to find an alternative product that was less expensive. I've decided that there is no point in me splurging out on a conditioner anymore because I do not use one every day, as my hair is so fine and it goes limp if I condition it too often. So far, this number from Herbal Essences certainly gets the job done for me! It adds volume to my hair without weighing it down and it leaves it feeling very soft and manageable. Not only this but the orange scent leaves my hair smelling lovely too, which is a complete bonus.

O.P.I Nail Polish in O.P.I Scores A Goal! - £8.55
Next, this nail varnish has been on my fingers for almost the entire month (I have re-painted, of course!) This gorgeous deep brown/purple colour is so autumnal and is perfect for this time of year. I love O.P.I polishes because the formula dries really quickly and their wide brushes make application an absolute breeze. With only two coats, you get a really opaque and glossy finish and overall the polish is pretty chip resistant as long as you use a decent top coat alongside it too!

Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colour in I'll Call You - £6.99
I recently did a full review of this product at the start of the month (which you can read here,) so I will keep this short and sweet! This gorgeous pink shade packs a real punch and is still very wearable at the same time. Its two step system is excellent; the colour itself is matte and stains the lips perfectly, where as the top coat seals in the colour and adds a glossy shine. This product stays on your lips all day which is perfect as you can avoid touch ups and it has great staying power for nights out as well.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in Black - £7.99
I'm going to get straight to the point, I am in love this mascara! Due to the fact that I have short, sparse and fine lashes (I'm not very lucky in the lash department,) I find it very hard to find mascaras that work well for me. However, this one has already become one of my favourites! It adds length and volume without becoming clumpy or weighing down my lashes too much. Plus, the plastic brush isn't too large which means that I can get to the root of my lashes properly and coat every single one easily. This one is definitely up their with my beloved They're Real! mascara.

Zoella Beauty Let's Glow Candle - £5.00
Last but not least, I was so excited about Zoella's product launch that I went and bought this candle and the bath soak almost immediately! Out of the two products, I have been loving this candle an awful lot. Whether I have been relaxing in the bath or having some me time in my room, this candle has been used the majority of the time. I love its sweet yet subtle scent as it is really relaxing and soothing. Plus, I love the look of the packaging and it looks great on display in my bedroom! Not only this but the candle burns pretty slowly, which means that I will be able to get a lot of uses out of it too.

So, those are my top five favourites for the month of October! I hope you have enjoyed reading about the products that I have been reaching for a lot over recent weeks. Which products that I have mentioned above do you like the sound of? What are your own monthly favourites? I love getting recommendations and feedback, so please do not hesitate to leave your thoughts and opinions below. Thank you!
