Revlon CustomEyes Shadow & Liner in Naturally Glamorous
Reviewed here separately, I favoured this palette at the beginning of the month, mostly using the two browns as all over lid colours. This would be an ideal palette for travel as it's streamlined and compact and contains all the colours you need for basic, slightly smokey eye makeup for both day and night. The shadows themselves are nicely pigmented and softly textured.
Maybelline EyeStudio Mono in Iced Fudged (720)
I bought Silken Taupe first, but I couldn't resist picking this shade up on sale as well. Iced Fudged reminds me a lot of Toasted from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, but without the pink undertone. It's a warm and quite frosty brown that works well as an all over lid colour. It's much more pigmented than Silken Taupe which makes it a lot easier to wear.
Revlon Luxurious Color Satin Eyeshadow in Polished Bronze (010)
I'm a little bit in love with this. I think it might be my favourite eyeshadow single. It's such an unassuming colour but it just seems to be the perfect shade for me. It's not too warm or cool, not overly glittery or frosty but just gives a soft, slightly taupey, bronzed sheen. I like to darken it up near the upper lashline with a touch of the first colour in the bottom row from my Sleek i-Divine Palette in Storm. The eyeshadow itself is soft and smooth in texture (the Revlon satin singles are superior to the mattes from my experience), but I find that it does wear off a little by the end of the day.

Rimmel 3 in 1 Powder Blush in Autumn Catwalk (003)
Despite buying a bazillion Bourjois pot blushes this month, it was this little gem from Rimmel (that I found hugely discounted at the feminine hygiene aisle of Coles, of all places) that I enjoyed using the most. The first two shades blended together form a pretty, glowy pink that brightens up the face. The third shade is a very pigmented coral which is a little too dark and orange for my tastes, but makes a good autumnal blush. You could use each of the three shades separately, though the second shade is quite glittery on its own and looks better blended with the first matte pink.
Ecotools Blush Brush
This was from a 5 piece Alicia Silverstone set, so I'm not sure whether it's the exact same as the individual Ecotools blush brush. Either way, it's beautifully soft, ideally shaped and seems to deposit the right amount of product just where you want it. I've been neglecting this brush in favour of my Real Techniques brushes, but it's just as good as the Blush and Multi Task brushes.
Urban Decay Primer Potion
I almost forgot that I have this travel size Primer Potion, which was included in the original Naked palette. While I prefer to use Revlon cream eyeshadows for priming my eyelid, I use this for the bottom lashline area. It's a nifty inclusion to my routine that helps my Maybelline gel eyeliner stay on longer and prevent mascara on the bottom lashes from smearing.
