November Favourites

Hi lovelies,

Today I will be posting my November favourites, I can't believe how quickly the month has gone (and the year) considering we are now in December and it's advent calendar time (yay!).

Anyways as the months have been getting colder its meant my lips are starting to get dry so I've been trying to keep on top of that and here are some of my most grabbed items this month.

Pantene Aqua Light Lightweight Nourishing Mist

This is a product I've had for a while but haven't always used I've just got round to finishing the one bottle and have started the second. I really enjoy using this product as I find once I've had a shower or even moved my hair instantly tangles and by spraying this it really does help and makes life look healthier.

I find sometimes the ends of my hair also get dry and giving them a spritz of this helps them feel nourished and it doesn't weigh my hair down.

I got this on offer in Superdrug 2 for £5 and wanted to try it out as a detangling spray and will definitely repurchase when I run out.

Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing Primer

This product has been a godsend for me when my skin has been bad, I find that before even applying any makeup it reduces the redness in my face and it helps reduce my breakouts. As a primer it has become my favourite (even though I don't own many) I love the way it sets on my face after applying, and it helps my makeup application.

I find my makeup lasts a lot longer when using this in comparison to other primers and my skin feels healthier when using this product. I've wanted to try Witch products in the past and this is my first and I can say I'm very happy with this product.

A little goes a long way with this so the small bottle lasts a while (I've had this since October and still 3/4 full). Loving this product, and it really does help your skin.

Elf Conditioning Lip Balm

With the winter months you may find like me your lips become a nightmare as they begin to dry up and I've only been using this particular colour in the last few days of the month but I love the product. I have this also in a darker red and it gives instant nourishment to your lips while adding colour.

This tinted balm is great if you want to go for a lighter look on the lips instead of applying lipstick and gloss this can look lovely for an everyday look. I love how creamy this is and feels lovely when applying, and the smell of the balm just adds to how lovely the product is.

This is a bargain product and I wasn't sure on how long it would last but the product has great staying power. It can be applied either with a lip brush of just simply your finger, a lovely product and I hope to get more colours soon.

Collection 2000 Pump Up The Volume Mascara

Again another product I've had for a while but I've found this month I've been reaching for this more than ever. I love the volume this mascara gives you especially as I find this gives around the same volume as my Benefit's They're Real but at a fraction of the price.

I love that this mascara isn't too clumpy either which is always a bonus as sometimes you find a mascara you love but it clumps on your lashes which is a big negative for me. I love the curve of the wand it makes adding the extra length really easy.

I find the mascara has great staying powder, just not sure if it's waterproof as I haven't really tested it for that. This does also manage to lift and curl my lashes a little which I love, this is a product that is becoming my most used high street mascara and find it hard to find faults with the product.

Collection 2000 Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner

The second Collection 2000 product to feature in my monthly favourites, now if you saw my last post on eyeliners you'll find that this was also included in that post. Felt liners have quickly become my favourite, I didn't like them to begin with as I felt them very fidgety but I've grown to love them.

This is a great lasting liner, and the small felt tip makes applying a doddle especially when creating the winged look. I find that the colour also doesn't fade during the day something I've encountered with other lines. Colour wise there isn't a lot of colours to choose from but that doesn't bother me as I love black liner.

I've been using this the majority of the month as I haven't had time to do much to my eyes for uni and work so I find I just simply do liner on the top lid with a flick and using this product it takes me a couple of mins. Again this is a cheap product but worth every penny, and I would happily repurchase.

Burt's Bees Lip Balm

After hearing the great reviews about Burt's Bees products I had to try some out, and I don't think I can say I've ever used a lip balm as much as this. Lip Balms are something I get use for a couple of days and then forget about, but this isn't the case with this I've been using this since I got it a couple of months back.

I love the smell and taste of this product, and my lips feel lovely after applying, the product also have a slight tint to it but you can't really see it on my lips it's only when applying on my hand you can see it.

I find my lips instantly feel soft and nourished which is great for the colder months, I've found that during the month my lips have been getting dry and this has caused me to bite them (a terrible habit) but I love that no matter how dry and horrible they are when I apply this they feel lovely and smooth.

Revlon Lipstick in Skyline Pink

This has been my most reached for lippie this month, when I first got this I wasn't sure whether I liked it because it was such a bright pink but I've come to love it and I'm always wearing it. With it being such a pale pink it makes a great everyday lipstick and I've found it perfect for uni.

I initially wanted this after seeing it was part of the new Revlon collection that BINTM winner Jade was the face of, and can be worn casually or dressed up which I love.

The formula of this is lovely and it glides on ever so easy and feels lovely to the lips. This is a colour I wouldn't normally go for but this month I've found it's been the perfect lipstick and a product I will continue to use for the months to come.

Anyways these were my favourites of the month, hope you enjoyed and lastly Clothes Show starts tomorrow, YAY! Anyone going to it if so when? I'll be there on Monday can't wait.
