Monthly Favourites | November

Monthly Favourites | November

It freaks me out a little to think that this is my last monthly favourites of 2015, how is it Christmas next month? Anyways, things have been a little crazy this month; as we're leading into Christmas I've been doing a lot of overtime at work so I've not had as much time for blogging and i just generally haven't been in the mood either so i decided to take a little break. However, the break ended up being even longer than planned because my laptop decided to stop working - thankfully, it's all fixed now and my little break has left me feeling refreshed and ready to get back to blogging, starting with my November Favourites.

The Balm Mary Lou Manizer AKA The Luminizer
I had an iffy start with this product but it has fast become one of my favourite highlighters. This is a golden toned highlighter and it's just stunning. I love to apply this to the top of my cheek bone and my brow bone and it just gives the most beautiful glow. It's subtle enough to wear day to day but it's easy to build up on to get impact for a more dressed up look.

One Direction You & I Perfume
I'm not even going to attempt to describe the scent of this because I'm not very good at that, so google it and find a good description or go into a store and check it out. I bought this on a whim because i really like their first perfume Our Moment so i wanted to try this one and it's really nice. It's a really pleasant and sweet scent and I'm really enjoying using it.

Lip Hop Perfection Lipstick in Shade 15*
This lipstick is possibly one of the boldest lip colours i use. I absolutely love it, it's so bold and vampy and it's one of those lipsticks that just makes you feel really confident and kick ass. It has a creamy and moisturising formula and it lasts ages. The only downside to it is that, if you reapply it a lot it starts to get a bit drying but it lasts so well that you don't really need to reapply that much.

Max Factor Eye Brow Pencil*
I wanted a product i could use everyday for my brows, that would be quick and easy but would still fill them in, so i had a browse through my collection and came across this Max Factor Eye Brow Pencil that I've had in my collection for a while and it's actually really impressed me. I have the shade Hazel which is quite a light-ish brown but it actually suits my brows just fine and looks really natural. It's not the creamiest of pencils but it's easy enough to use and it gives me the natural look i want for my brows.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
I adore this shower gel, the scent is so sickly sweet and i love it. I bought this last boxing day but have avoiding using it for as long as possible because i didn't want to be without it. I've only started using is again recently and as you can see I've used up quite a lot. This definitely isn't for everyone but i love it.

Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask*
I'd never tried anything from Merumaya before this but this mask is incredible. I noticed results instantly after using, even my sister noticed a difference in my skin straight away. It's a really gentle mud mask, it's creamy and easy to apply but it dries so nicely that it doesn't feel like you're wearing a mask. It leaves my skin feeling incredible and I'm so impressed with it.
