I'm really loving October and we've actually been having a fantastic fall this year (meaning the snow hasn't started, yet) and the colours and decent temperatures have me all into the season!
Thought I'd share some of my October faves with you...the stuff I've been using a lot and am currently diggin'...

{Finally I got my hands on the Wet n Wild 8 pan palette in Comfort Zone. It's the perfect combo of warm neutrals and olive tones. The pigmentation and quality is a-mazing. Srsly worth every inexpensive penny!}

{1. Maybelline Eye Studio Color Explosion in Amethyst Ablaze and Caffine Rush. I've never really been a fan of Maybelline eye shadows but like so many drug-store brands lately, they've really improved their quality. The application of this shadow is smooth and creamy and the color pay-off is fantastic. I'm beginning to think that my days of buying $15 MAC eyeshadows have come to an end...
2. Just in time for Halloween, orange Sally Hansen polish with a black crackle top-coat.
3. Lancome's newest mascara, Hypnose Doll Lash mascara. Like all of the Hypnose mascara's the application is impressive but the Doll Lash offers a more "wide-eye look with volumized, extended and lifted lashes."  I'm sold, who doesn't want to look like "a doll?!"

 {Ok, so since Captain Jack Sparrow arrived on the movie scene about 10 years ago, pirate costumes have had a serious renaissance and I'm ok with that. Now it's my turn to swashbuckle and plunder my way through Halloween this year.}

{Guten Tag! We survived yet another Oktoberfest at our pub. Older brother decided that on the last few weekends of October, our staff should suit up in lederhosen (the bartenders) and as beer maids (waitresses.) Kitschy? Yes. A huge success with our customers? YES!}

So how has your October been so far? What are your must have products or styles for your perfect fall looks?  
Are you a serious nerd keener like me and already have your Halloween costumes figured out (since September?

Do you and your husband own a pub?!?! How could I not have known this?
Your costume is so nice, it looks like a really good quality, so many costumes look so cheap.
We are taking a break from Halloween this year, hopefully I won't regret it!
I also really want to try that Lancome Doll Eyes. Did you get the free gift with purchase?
I will check back for answers to my questions =P.

@Kim, our pub is The Darby Arms, south on Macleod trail (across from the shawnessy shopping area), I scoped out the costume online but picked it up here at Don's Hobby Shop downtown. Not a bad price either...cheaper than ordering from the US.
I got the Lacome mascara at Sephora so no gift with purchase...probably should have got it from the Bay!!

I'm loving our Fall too! It's so unexpected!

That's very cool you and your hubby own a pub! I didn't know that.

I love the Wet 'n Wild eye shadows. The color really holds well.
