Hey Curvy Crew!
Can you believe that we are already at the end of October? We are two months away from the new year…wow! October was a fun month full of adventure, learning experiences and memorable moments. While I was enjoying the month, I also used some amazing products that I wanted to share with the crew. You know those October Favorites are Lit!
The Curvy Crew has been awesome, asking me to keep you updated on some of the products that I’ve been using and how they are working. I hope you are all following me on Snapchat because that’s where I share my day to day products, but I’m ready to share my OCTOBER FAVORITES with you!
As a single women with dry skin, dry hair and a mean makeup habit, I try my best to save up and purchase products that I’ve researched and want to try. If I’m not sure about the product, I will see if Sephora carries it and will ask for a sample to try out before committing to a product. Use the sample program at Sephora, you’ll be glad you did!
As we begin to go through these products, some of the products I’ve had for a while and just really started to use them in the October and some were purchased at the beginning of the month. All of these products are my current favorites. I’ve used them and they have worked really well with my skin, hair or makeup. I hope that you enjoy checking these products out. If you’re interested in picking up any of the products listed below, just link the product title.
I hope that you enjoy my October Favorites! Be sure to stop by our YouTube channel and “Like and Subscribe”!
Let me know which product is your favorite.
Cover FX Matte Setting Powder
A loose setting powder to set foundation and minimize shine.
This loose setting powder is rich in healthy ingredients that soothe, minimize shine, and extend foundation wear to last all day. My new go-to for setting powders. I used the color deep and it’s been working great to set my concealer under eyes. The finely milled consistency helps to give you a smooth finish.
Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer
A lightweight concealer that covers and brightens to help you fake a more alert appearance in seconds.
This highly-pigmented, lightweight concealer provides buildable coverage and color without adding texture to your skin or settling into fine lines. Infused with pineapple ceramides, the gel-serum formula brightens and improves skin texture as it covers, making it ideal for the undereye area. The unique applicator ensures the perfect amount of product—just dip, dot, and blend.
Words cannot express how happy I am to have found this concealer. If creasing is a problem in your makeup routine, then I encourage you to give the Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum a try, I promise you will not regret it.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation
A long-wearing foundation stick with the coverage of a concealer, fluidity of a liquid, and weightlessness of a powder for invisible full coverage.
A foundation and concealer in one, Vanish Foundation’s concentrated formula is infused with double the amount of pigment versus traditional foundations for instant full coverage in one application. The long-wearing, waterproof formula provides 12 hour coverage, and the innovative formula adjusts to your body temperature to effortlessly blend into the skin. Encased in a unique triangular bullet for precise application along the contours of the face, it can be used to contour and highlight. It features an array of shades and it’s designed specifically to be used with the Vanish Foundation Brush for the most seamless finish.
I’ve been wearing this foundation consistently for a little over a month and it’s was my favorite as soon as I blended it out for the first time. This foundation literally vanishes into my skin, leaving a very smooth finish. So good that I’m thinking about purchasing another foundation stick and perhaps another in a dark color for my contour.
Formulated with powerful peptides and proteins, srengthening biotin, lash-lifting polymers and plumping collagen, this anti-aging mascara will take your lashes to new heights. The innovative formula and Lash-Changing Power Brush work together to coat every lash from base to tips, lifting and separating to create a fuller lash line – no lash is left behind! This super-black mascara is also super-buildable, so lash power is at your fingertips; simply apply more coats to add volume and length.
When I received a sample of the IT Cosmetics Superhero mascara in my recent Ipsy Bag, I was excited as it’s one of the beauty products on my wishlist. (Another reason I love Ipsy) I had heard a lot of good reviews on the mascara but there is nothing like trying it on your own and falling in love right away. This is the mascara that I will keep on me at all times. I love it!
Soft and silky, this natural brush was designed to streamline and enhance sculpting and shaping techniques. The goat-hair bristles evenly apply powder formulas and help you effortlessly achieve the flawless finish you desire.
When the salesperson at Sephora suggested the brush to use with the Cover FX setting powder, I was a little skeptical, but I knew that I wanted a brush in the same shape, so I decided to grab it. This was one of those decision where you do a happy dance, yes! This is an all-around brush that can be used for various applications.
Smoothing jojoba and macadamia oils are melted into a creamy duo of organic rice milk and botanical green tea, while slippery elm extract is hand whisked throughout for intense smoothing benefits. Droplets of aloe juice blended with nutrient-rich Vitamin C nourish and strengthen strands in this moisture-rich hair butter.
This is one of those products that sat in my cabinet untouched for a while until I realized that I just ran out of my Curling Smoothie by Shea Moisture and needed something to not only moisturize but also have some hold for my twist-outs. I found it! The Camille Rose Curlaide gives my hair so much moisture and definition. I’ve used it to re-twist a week old twist-out and my hair looked and felt as though I just went though my wash day routine. It’s a keeper.
An exotic and enticing blend of lightweight coconut oil to nourish strands along with hydrating bamboo extract for hair that is soft, touchable and healthier looking with each use. It mists on moisture and hydration, making your hair look nourished and healthier with each use! An infusion of lightweight coconut oil to nourish strands along with hydrating bamboo extract that adds shine and touchable softness.
This product was an impulse buy when I picked this up from local Target store. I had no huge exception, I was just looking for a light weight oil that would help to refresh a look and help with flyaways when I wore my hair straightened. This has been one of those products that I’m so happy with.

I love this cleanser because it’s one of the few cleansers that I own that don’t make my face feel dry and tight after cleansing. My skin feels so hydrated and clean. Using my Clarsonic with the Korres Greek Yoghurt as revealed that my skin has been in need of a product that can deep clean but also hydrate. I’m very happy.
