Welcome to my world of makeup, sweet scents and real talk. You should always have a cuppa to hand and sit back and enjoy a little snippet of my world! A beauty and lifestyle blog for all, but as I like to say it's also 'brown girl friendly'. As a brown beauty myself I ensure that all product reviews that are complexion based really show what works on a deeper skin tone as well as showing what's being catered for brown beauties!

Happy new month! So with the new month comes new exciting product releases. Let's take a look at what's to come and already released in the month of October.

CoverFX are relaunching their Illuminating Finish Powder, which they claim will be much more creamier and brighter than the original. The great thing about these new Perfect Light Highlighting Powders is that if you're a fan of the CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops, then you'll love these as they are releasing the new powders in three of the shades in the Custom Enhacer Drops collection (Moonlight, Sunlight and Candlelight). I think these would be great if you're not really a fan of liquid highlighters too! These will be released on the 3rd October on the CoverFX website, and later this month in Sephora. I'd also keep a look out to see if SpaceNK get these and Harvey Nichols!

So last month I visited a Laura Mercier concession in House of Fraser, and I asked them about the release date of their new 4 pan highlighter. The new Fall in Love Illuminator will be limited edition and will include smaller pans of the original illuminators Devotion, Indiscretion, Addiction and Seduction. These are already available on Sephora's website ($58), but will be available in stores this month (including the UK). I already have three of the original pans so I won't be getting this one, but let me know if you will!

Now if you love your marble packaging (every bloggers go to accessory it seems!) then you are going to want to keep a look out for the new Marble Collection being released by BhCosmetics. They will be releasing two eyeshadow palettes: cool stone (pink marble) and warm stone (grey marble). They both will contain 12 shades with a mixture of mattes and shimmers and will retail for $12 each. I'm definitely considering this one! The warm stone looks more like what I'd go for! The release date is tbc! (UPDATE: THESE HAVE JUST GONE LIVE ON THE BHCOSMETICS WEBSITE!)
Stila have released their new Christmas 2016 collection! Its full of Stay All Day Liquid lipstick mini sets, an eyeliner set, a makeup brush and a highlighter palette. It all looks stunning in its gold packaging. I'll be giving this one a miss (like the majority of Christmas releases this year!) but will you be picking anything up?

Tanya Burr has released her new Autumn collection of her makeup line in Superdrugs. To be completely honest, I've only ever tried her lip glosses (infact that was one of my first ever lip swatch videos on youtube!). Her new range comprises of body illuminators, cheek illuminators, an eyeshadow palette and face palette. It also includes her new lipsticks which look gorgeous in their gold packaging.

Jouer cosmetics have released a new eyeshadow palette called the Essential Matte and Shimmer. It appears to be more of an earthy toned palette which I love. This is available on Jouer's website for $40 on October 4th as well as on Cult Beauty's website for £32.

Now if you love your brushes and beauty sponges, you will love the new collection released by Elf Cosmetics called the Beautifully Precise Brushes. There are a total of 9 brushes sold as a complete bundle (£90.50), partial bundles (£18.00 - £40.50) or singles (£6.00 - £14.50). They are stunning with their white bristles and clear brush handles. I definitely want to try some of the more unusual shapes!

I'm a huge fan of Bioderma, so when I saw that Escentuals were now stocking their new reverse pump bottle it quickly got added to my wishlist. I'm not sure if this is an October release but who cares! It looks fab. It's currently retailing for £12.66 (rrp £19.99) for 500ml.
Tam Beauty are on a constant roll! They never seem to stop. This month has seen a host of exciting releases to say the least. These include, the newest chocolate palette called Chocolate Love, new beauty sponges (including minis!), new lip lavas with a chocolate scent to them (love these!), new makeup erasers and brow pomades (they've also released a load of new Halloween makeup essentials if that's your thing!) Phew! I love their products and so I've already bought a few of these so look out for future reviews!

Now the last palette I'll be talking about is the new Palette Les Nudes by Bourjois Paris. I don't normally purchase Bourjois products as they mostly do not cater for my skin tone, however I couldn't pass on these palettes when I saw them in Boots! I'll be doing a full review of them but make the most of the 2 for 1 offer Boots currently have as these normally retail for £11.99 but I ended up paying £12 for both!

There are so many more new releases! I just can't keep up. Is there anything you're looking forward to getting your hands on this month?

Have a great weekend,

Vicky x
