November Favourites! (& my first youtube video!)

IMG_0326 

Stargazer Star Pearl Eyeshadow in Peach Flush

Amazing price, great quality, gorgeous colour – everyone should have this eyeshadow!  I’ve been wearing this lots as my base colour for the rest of my eyeshadow and I love it.  My last one cracked so I went out and bought a new one and I’m glad I did.

Barry M Lipstick in #150

My newest lipstick which I adore – a gorgeous natural, moisturizing, pink brown colour which you can see swatches of in my last post here.  I’ve been wearing this lots recently as I find it easy to wear with any of my clothes.

Prive Hair Serum

I was recently introduced to the Prive hair care range, created entirely by a session stylist to the stars!  I adore this serum – I apply it to the ends of my hair when its dry or damp, and I pay special attention to the bits of my hair that are dry from bleach.  It really leaves my hair feeling silky smooth, and the product is made from natural ingredients – what more can I ask for!  I’ve been using a whole hair regime from Prive so will post what I think of it in the next few weeks!

Bourjois Eye glitter in #22 & #23

I used to use these every single day a few years ago and I’ve just rediscovered them, just in time for Christmas and the sparkly season.  They are beautiful powdered glitters that come in a little pot with a brush in the lid.  I have one in silver and one in gold and I use them under my brow bone to highlight and they really do look beautiful.  Will be using these for months to come!

Topshop Cream Blusher in Neon Rose

Blusher is so important in the winter months to keep me from looking pasty and frozen, so I’ve been using my favourite Rogue Bunny Rogue bronzer with a smidgen of Neon Rose dabbed on top – keeps me looking rosy and fresh throughout the cold days!  This cream blush is going to last me forever – I only need the tiniest bit, its great value.  (You can see my swatches of my Topshop cream blushers here)

Superdrug body spray

Whenever I go back to my home in Essex my sister introduces me to a new body spray, and recently they have been these Superdrug own brand sprays.  They smell SO GOOD.  Especially Flirty and Delicious – I can’t describe them, both are gorgeous fragrances and last surprisingly well on the skin.  I’m one to forget to put perfume on, so these are great and light to carry around in my bag to spritz up in the day!  And at only 99p each, you can’t' go wrong!

(Does anyone remember how amazing Impulse body sprays used to be, back in the day?  They were incredible, my favourites were vanilla and the limited edition Spice Girls one they did back in the 90s!  Did anyone else have these? Sadly they don’t make the vanilla anymore – such a shame!  If anybody knows of any vanilla body sprays let me know!)

Vaseline Cocoa Butter Body Oil

I’m on a bit of a cocoa butter frenzy at the moment!  Girls, if you love a chocolaty, sweet body fragrances or moisturizers then you will fall in love with this, just like I have.  I was browsing in Boots ages ago, sniffed this curiously, not really paying attention and I nearly died out of love for this scent – its amazing, go sniff it!  Its nice as a body oil, does leave you pretty greasy, but it moisturizes well after a bath and leaves me feeling soft and smelling gorgeous for hours!

The Body Shop’s Lightening Touch in #03

I’ve been using this product for about three years now and sometimes I don’t know what I’d do without it!  I’ve never had to even bother trying YSL’s Touch Eclat because this is basically the same thing for half the price.  I’ve been using it a lot this month because I’ve had lots of late nights and the dark circles/bags under my eyes are paying for it!  I tap a few dots of this under each eye, and then pat it in with my ring finger.  I also pop some on any redness on my face and down the center of my nose just to highlight.  It covers my bags well and includes light particles to bounce light back off to create an airbrushed illusion.  #03 is the perfect shade for me as and my pale skin!

favs 

I’ve also filmed my first video for you tube!  I really want to get into filming videos, but I’ve attempted doing a tutorial before and ended up with mascara all over my face (haha!!) , so this first video is just to ease me in to the video-community and here you can watch me waffle on for ten minutes about what’s in my bag!  Haha!  I’ve had a request to do a tutorial on how to do the makeup I’m wearing in my blog header so that’ll be the next video that I do (I’ll film it next week!).  I hope you enjoy this!

If you have any other requests for things I could film then let me know!

ALSO – I want to say a MASSIVE thank you for everyone who commented on my last post, about my favourite books.  I’d had it written out for a month but didn’t post it because I didn’t think any one would be interested, but I’m so overwhelmed with the response!  Thank you to everyone who recommended me a new book and I really hope you enjoy the books that I’ve inspired you to read!

What were your favourite products from November, do you have any video requests for me and what’s your favourite body spray?

  4. The Lightening Touch by TBS is one of my favourites- it also contains double the amount of product as in Touche Eclat... So it's a massive deal ;)

    You know, usually I'm disappointed by bloggers who make youtube videos because somehow their voice doesn't match what I thought it would sound like- but your voice is so cute and perfect! Hope I'm not being weird, lol

    Good luck with the Youtube videos, can't wait to see more! I've subscribed ;)
