November Favourites

If you're reading this, then it's my birthday! Eeeee!!! I'm typing this a week in advance so that there's still content going live on my blog whilst I'm off galavanting in NYC and thinking about my birthday has me excited like a 5-year-old at Christmas. Speaking of which, 27 sleeps until Christmas! Eeeee!!! Honestly, I'm sure I'm a child in a now 23-year-old's body. Anyway, that was a massive segway... November Favourites. I feel like every Favourites for the past 3 months I've said "the months are going so fast" but it's happened again, November has flown by and I haven't really tried many new products! But, I have gone through my makeup stash and dug out a few things I haven't used in ages...

1. Pixi - Glow Tonic

I purchased this back in September and I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog yet which is a crime considering I love it so much! I use it straight after I cleanse in the morning and it makes my skin feel great. Cleansing, as good as it is, seems to dry my skin out, but this Pixi product puts the moisture back in and does what it says on the bottle, makes my skin glow!

2. KIKO - Infinity Eye Shadows

I wore this super subtle, not glittery in the slightest, smoky eye out for a Friends birthday at the end of October and absolutely loved it! So much so that I've been re-creating it pretty much every day this month, with these two shadows alone! The KIKO shadows blend beautifully and have great colour pay off which is why I love them so much, I'm always talking about them on here so if that doesn't tell you they're something amazing, then I don't know what will!

3. MAC - Mineralize Blush

I got this blush for my birthday last year as a part of my MAC makeover. In all honesty, I haven't used it much at all and I'm sure you can tell from the picture. But this month, it's been the key to brightening my face. The weather has honestly been horrible this November. Gale force winds and torrential rain all month, got to do something to brighten things up a little.

4. Soap & Glory - Supercat Liner

If you read my blog often, you'll have heard me go on and on and on about this eyeliner. At the beginning of the month, my one ran out. I don't know what came over me but when I went to pick up a new one, I decided to try something else instead and regretted it immediately. It was runny and sloppy and didn't stay put. I haven't worn the Supercat liner all month but I've been dreaming about the day I get to pick up another one.

5. Eyelure - Single Lashed by Fleur de Force

I have been looking for an excuse to try out false lashes for the longest time, so when that birthday  I mentioned earlier came around I took the plunge! I picked up single lashes because I didn't want something too over the top, something natural and Fleur knows natural beauty so well. And I wasn't disappointed, I've only used the medium and small lashes because once mascara is applied they give the perfect amount of length and volume that I was after. I've even picked up a packet of full lashes to try with my birthday makeup too.

6. Duo - White Clear Lash Glue

I've heard a lot of people talking about how they never use the lash glue that comes with the packs, and being the inexperienced false lash fan that I was, I wasn't going to take any risks. I picked up the white to clear lash glue by Duo and I probably wouldn't bother trying anything else. I like the fact it goes on white because it's easier to see where you're placing the lashes, important when you're as cack-handed as me.

7. Rimmel London - Lasting Finish Lipstick 08

I have never really been a fan of nude lipsticks. In my Birthday Makeup Edit blog post, I mentioned that I don't tend to like shades that I can't tell I'm wearing, I just never saw the point. But I get it now. Is the 'your lips but better' saying to cliche because it fits quite nicely? Nude lipsticks are natural but pretty and so low maintenance. I've been wearing it to work every day this month!

I know my favourites lately have been pretty boring, but hopefully they'll pick up a little because of the amount of new stuff I'm hoping to bring back from New York with me. Here's to brighter and better favourites. See you soon.

Love always,
