Last month was a pretty hectic one which might explain why my October LoveMeBeauty is appearing in November, oops. But it was a good month and it really had to be as last month was all about Kat von D which unsurprisingly crashed the website. I wouldn’t say that LMB went one better but this month was certainly on par.
October was the Enchanted Edit with makeup from Benefit and Make Up For Ever as well as a few skincare choices from Nuxe. I decided that obviously I would choose the makeup, sadly however a few bits went out of stock before my renewal date *insert sad face here* The bits I missed out on were the Benefit Ready, Set, Brow eyebrow primer and Dew the Hoola liquid bronzer and from Make Up For Ever the HD Power but I got some pretty good bits instead.
First off thought I have to mention the makeup bag this month, I am going to use it as some point to justify buying a palette. So LoveMeBeauty I’m blaming you for when a palette review appears on the blog. To be honest it’s nice to see an alternative to the traditional beauty box as you can only use so many boxes to store stuff in whereas a makeup bag I can take places and use as blog props.
The first three things I got totalled 50 credits. I chose Benefit’s Roller Lash as I love the mascara and my mini has just dried up which has left me needing another. While I don’t think it is better than my favourite They’re Real for 15 credits I was more than happy to stock up. Another mascara may have just made its way into my bag in the shape of Make Up For Ever’s Excessive Lash. Now I’ve never tried this and it was the most expensive of the bits in my beauty bag at 20 credits but I love my mascaras. Also it was from Make Up For Ever and they’re a brand I’ve heard loads about by haven’t tried anything. Then I had to get the mini Make Up For Ever lipstick in M401 Mat, it’s a really lovely red and it’s so diddy but still useful which is great as some samples are just not worth it but these definitely are.
The last two products I spent 20 credits on, and if you’re eagle eyed you’ll realise that LMB gives you 60 credits a month and I spent 70 but I had extra as I got an amazing Groupon deal which gave you extra. The Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Pencil in M10 was only 10 credits and a mini eyeliner is never to be sniffed at especially when it’s so dark. Finally was a fan favourite which was only available halfway through the month and it was Benefit’s POREfessional for 10 credits. I recently used up my mini of this and it was so great to grab another.
If you haven’t tried LMB yet and want to I would check Groupon for an amazing deal (50% off a 6 month subscription.) Or try my code BETH7867 to get 30 credits free! The box is around £14 including p&p so not the cheapest but the bits you get are always worth it.
Pssst! Don’t forget:
