November Favourites

November FavouritesWe are in the last month of the year, like what! It’s just crazy how each month has flown by and November is another month filled with lots of new favourites!November Favourites

Everything I’m featuring this month is quite new, there’s no reignited loves, these are all just products I’ve really bought or been given and just loved using!

I mean first off I have mention Snow Fairy in my November favourites. I’ve used every product with the iconic ‘candyfloss’ scent but this is the first Fun product I’ve bought. I’ve always been intrigued how this fun product works, like what is it? Well it’s basically a play doh type feel that you just tare bits off and use as a shampoo and skin conditioner. I know wierd right? The smell is absolutely divine and I just rub this on my skin and it just leaves you smelling so nice! People make all sorts out of these stuff but it actually goes a long way a little bit of it.. It’s definitely good for the price.

I recently featured the Moondust shadows on here and I had to mention it in my overall faves. Like these are seriously the best cream shadows I’ve tried, so so easy to apply and it sets so nice! The shade Zap is a gorgeous antique gold and it just compliments a smoky eye lovely – a must for your December parties.

Mac Extra Dimension Skinfinish in show gold is a stunning highlighter and I’ve loved changing my contouring game with this! It’s got a gorgeous tone of peach with iridescent pink and its pairs so nice with any musk pink blushes. It’s very subtle and it definitely is the finish you need to add for your makeup, I wouldn’t go as far to say its best highlighter I’ve tried, but its up their with one of the nicest. It’s so pretty in person too.

I’ve been on the look out for a new cleanser that takes all my makeup off with ease. From LexiLife‘s recommendation, she told me to try out Biore after seeing how godo their pore strips were. Well it was 3 for 2 in Boots so I picked those up and also this Baking Soda Pore Cleanser. Yeah baking soda, how good? It literally melts away your makeup including waterproof foundation and mascara. It exfoliates the skin and its perfect for combination skin, like me!

Vichy got in touch with me a while back and asked if I’d like to try their Ideal Body Balm*. This time of year, my skin gets quite dry especially with lots of fake tanning. I’ve been using this to keep my skin feel soft and nourished and its honestly sooo nice. It smells so fresh and floral – like a perfume. It’s a great investment and mum loves using it too, its so nice to apply on your legs after shaving too!

I’ve said before on here that Primark do lovely lip products, especially their Lip Liners. Shade 06 is a lovely soft pink that pairs really nice with nude lipsticks such as Mac’s Velvet teddy. Its crazy for £1 how long they last and how creamy they are too, I’d definitely recommend trying their lip liners – they do a great range of shades!

Finally another new product I was lucky enough to try was Manuka Doctor ApiRefine Gold Dust Firming Serum*. I’ve never tried this brand before, but I’ve heard so many amazing stuff, especially that Kourtney Kardashian endoreses it. I’ve been using this as a primer as it has the properties to make the skin look more radiant and smooth. It’s so nice with the speckles of gold dust, I don’t know if you can really tell in the swatch but so far I’ve enjoyed using this as a base or a nightout ritual.

    I bought Soft Frost from MAC which is the purple iridescent highlight and honestly I love it and want to buy all the shades! Show gold definitely looks the most wearable! xx

    I’ve never tried any Biore skincare products apart from their nose strips, but I would love to try that cleanser! I swatched the new Mac highlighters in store which were stunning but i have to say I think I prefer the original soft and gentle one more! xx

    • 11 December 2016 / 8:45 pm

      The nose tips and cleanser are amazing!! Yeah you can’t go wrong with soft and gentle like xx

    I love the Snow Fairy scent from Lush, I’ve had their FUN before and I really like! Like you said a little bit goes a long way and the scent lasts on my skin for a while after. I recently got a lipcrayon from Primark (£2!) the High Shine lipstick crayon in ruby red, and I’m really impressed with it. It’s creamy and very pigmented and I want to go back to get their red lip liner to go with it. I will definitely be checking out more of their lip products. 🙂
