November Favourites!

Finally, a proper post! ;)

I have SO many products I'm loving this month, so many that not all the products pictured are going to get a proper mention, I've included what they are below the pictures and most of them will get a proper post of their own soon. If there's anything in particular you'd like to know more about then let me know and I'll get a post up for you :)

Simple Oil balancing moisturiser, Distilled witch hazel, Nivea's pearly shine, Bourjois 10 hours sleep effect, ELF seductive, ELF cover up stick, ELF cream eyeliner, ELF eye primer...! 17 Wild curls mascara...
Witch hazel- I've been using this for about a month now and my skin is definitely doing better. I wouldn't necessarily say that it's lessened the amount of spots I get particularly, but it keeps moisture levels balanced and skin soft and smooth, I've not been using half the moisturiser I used to! It's also made a HUGE difference to the size of my pores around my nose and the congestion in them too. I'll definitely keep using this. Bargain at just over £2 from Boots!

ELF cream eyeliner- this has been especially great in the colder weather as my eyes tend to run. No smudging and totally waterproof, but comes off easily when you want it to. Perfect for a more smoked out/smudgey look and really easy.

ELF lipstick in Seductive. For £1.50 you can't go wrong and the colour of this is perfect, in the "my lips but better" range this is perfect, it doesn't dry my lips out too much either. The packaging's great too as you can see the colour through parts of it. 

Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect foundation- this is my first liquid foundation in quite a while and I'm loving it, it's a great colour match with a lovely finish, nice smell and it blends in quickly and easily! I've been applying this with my ELF studio powder brush and that's been perfect for providing good coverage without looking mask- like.

As above... Plus Lush it started with a kiss lip tint, ELF everyday eyes (I think..) palette, Everyday Mineral's Aussie Perk Me Up concealer.
Everyday Minerals concealer- Aussie Perk Me Up- this is perfect for giving a dewy glow to the skin after foundation but without leaving skin feeling at all greasy or tacky as it's a powder formula. Buffed in it looks really natural and leaves your skin looking healthy and alive (always good!) I'm also using Lily Lolo's flawless silk (not pictured) to keep my foundation the right side of bright alive skin and not lightbulb glowing ;)

ELF all over cover stick- again, £1.50 from ELF and great as a base, leaves skin tone even and blemishes covered.

Liz Earle Superskin moisturiser- not in the above pictures, but this is just fab for my poor skin at this time of year, lasts ages, and the £32 price tag is well worth it in my opinion.

Simple oil balancing moisturiser- still using this in the mornings to keep my skin shine free and my make up staying put all day!

Looking forward to getting proper posts on a few of these up for you very soon! :)

Hope you're having a great weekend! xx

How often do you use the witch hazel hun? I'm thinking of giving it a go as the pores on my nose are awful! Do you just literally wipe some over the skin with cotton wool or something?

Loving the blog by the way hun :D xxxx

Paperheart- thanks, yes, would really recommend! x

Kat- They're surprisingly good, wasn't expecting so much from them! x

Jen- I tend to use it twice a day, depending on what products I'm using in the morning as there are some moisturisers that don't seem to do well when they go on after it. Will have a full post up on it soon :) You do literally just swipe it over your face though :)

Thanks lovely! x
