Ranging from make-up to books and to fashion, scroll down to see some of my fave stuff in the month of October.
001. MOONSHOT MICRO SETTING FIT CUSHION SPF 50+
I bought this mid-October and it easily became one of my ultimate favourite cushions ever.
Packaging? A++++. Definitely, super pretty!
What do you love most about it? I super love that its finish is not super matte and super dewy. It
finishes off like second skin and doesn’t cake. October here in the Philippines
felt like summer when it’s suppose to be cold and I loved how this
cushion didn’t feel too sticky on my skin and too dry.
Would you recommend it to anyone? Definitely. I also think it’s reasonably priced since it really is
a quality cushion foundation. I know a lot of really expensive cushion
foundations that aren’t as good as this.
쿠션 SPF50+ PA+++
in shade #201 Beige
002. BOBBY BROWN CRUSHED LIP COLOR IN BARE
I actually bought this last September but I only frequently used this in the month of October. Now, it’s definitely one of my most used lipsticks.
Packaging? It’s okay. Quality is okay. I wished they’ll improve it though.
What do you love most about it? I don’t really do a full lip and I tend to blend the lipsticks I use
whenever I apply it on my lips. This one has sheer coverage and gives off the
right amount of tint which I really love.
Would you recommend it to anyone? Yes, but I don’t think everyone would actually appreciate its
color pay off since it’s sheer. If you’re a natural-looking lip fan, then you’d totally love this!
003. GLOSSIER LASH SLICK
Bought this waaaaay back when it was first released and I only really got to appreciate this product now.
Packaging? Okay quality. Nothing significant though.
What do you love most about it? Curls and elongates my lashes so damn much and does not clump
at all. Buildable formula. My friend even complimented my lashes when I used this one.
It has a little downside though. When I first used this product, It gave me racoon eyes at the end
of the day which resulted in me not using this for a couple of months but recently,
I decided to give it another shot and it doesn’t do that anymore and that’s
why it slowly entered my heart and et voilà ! it’s now in my October favorites.
Would you recommend it to anyone? Yes, definitely

004. THE SAEM COVER PERFECTION TIP CONCEALER
I’ve heard about this product before but I only bought this because of SEVENTEEN.
Packaging? It’s okay. Given the price, I say the packaging’s reasonable!
What do you love most about it? I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. But seriously, this concealer is
everything. I’m not much of a concealer-type of person but this one just really works wonders.
Amazing coverage and finish (not too matte or dewy) and honestly, you can just apply
this on some of the parts of your face, blend and you’re good to go. It’s THAT good.
Would you recommend it to anyone? YES.
005. JO MALONE VELVET ROSE & OUD HOME CANDLE
This candle has been on my wish list ever since I could remember and I finally got to buy it and I’m
loving it ever since.
Packaging? I love the classic design of Jo Malone products so I definitely liked the packaging of
this one. I also love how this candle has a cover.
What do you love most about it? Definitely, the scent. I actually have the perfume version of this
and I fell head over heels in love with it to the point that I wanted to have the candle version of it
as well. Now, I actually really suck at describing scents but I love how the sweet scent of rose
goes well with the musky scent of oud. Also, I noticed that this candle diffuses the scent in my
room even more compared to the other candles i’ve tried.
Would you recommend it to anyone? If you’re willing to splurge on a candle then why not?
“Darkest Damask rose. Rich and textural, wrapped with smoky oud wood. Spiked with clove, decadent with praline.”

006. CHARLES & KEITH EMBELLISHED cardholder
Just look at how pretty this cardholder is like honestly, I don’t think I need to say more.
Quality? So good. Actually, feels pretty luxurious. I have a bad habit of taking it out of my bag
and just touching it and feeling the texture LOL.
What do you love most about it? I just really love this cardholder so much. I actually just put my
money on it and not my cards. The design, quality and texture. I just love everything. Also, I’ve
been loving red recently so I got it in the color red. If I actually encountered this cardholder last
year, I would’ve bought the black one instead.
Would you recommend it to anyone? Two of my sisters are actually planning on buying their own
after seeing mine LMAO.
007. RIP INDO HISASHI - EP BY NO ROME
This entire EP has been on repeat for the whole month of October.
What do you love most about it? I just love the whole dreamy vibe of this EP. I don’t want to spoil
anything but for you to actually get what i’m talking about, just give this EP a listen and
you’ll know why i’m in love with it so much.
Ultimate favorite song? Do It Again.
Would you recommend it to anyone? I’ve already made my sisters and some of
my friends have a listen to it!

008. Exoplanets: Diamond Worlds, Super Earths, Pulsar Planets, and the New Search for Life beyond Our Solar System by Michael Summers and James Trefil
Literally grabbed this out of the shelf the moment I laid my eyes on it.
What do you love most about it? I love how the authors had written a very in-depth book about
exoplanets and life in our universe that’s very easy to digest. I also love how this book
makes you ask more questions plus, It’s a very refreshing read!
Would you recommend it to anyone? For the general curious person, this is a must read for you!
009. FACTORY FOR HIRE’s I MISS MANILA DENIM JACKET
I honestly can’t count how many times I’ve worn this during the whole month of October.
Quality? A++++++++++++. It’s actually on the pricey side but I can totally say
its quality is superb!
What do you love most about it? The denim quality is seriously so good. It’s not stiff and is
actually really comfortable to wear. I also love the oversize fit of this jacket. I honestly don’t know
what to say anymore other than the fact that i’ve worn this a countless times already.
Downside? I find it super pricey, to be quite honest but I suppose that comes
with it along with its superb quality.
Would you recommend it to anyone? Definitely, if you’re willing to splurge.
