November Favourites

It's December tomorrow! I'm rather sad about this as I will not be at home to fetch the Christmas tree next weekend, gutted. I love going up to my local forested area where they sell the trees, they have loads of those mobile food stops with the hot pork baps, burgers and hot dogs, you all know what I mean. The atmosphere is really nice, with loads of people picking their trees, standing with steaming hot drinks having a laugh. Plus Santa is usually there....!

Anyhow, whilst I'd rather be at home writing up my November Favourites post I'm still stuck here at university, I'm literally counting the days until the 22nd when I'm homeward bound.

Here are my favourite products from this month.

I'm planning on doing reviews of everything you see here apart from the Blistex Intensive Moisturiser Lip Balm so pop back to check every now and then if you're interested in my opinions on them.

I've not being using this very long however since I purchased this I have used it every day. I picked up the Sleek blusher in Rose Gold and my oh my I'm glad I did, it is beyond gorgeous. Every time I use this I'm amazed at how stunning it is, I just love using it in the morning. It doesn't come out as dark as it looks in the pan, it can however be built up into quite a glow if that is the look you're going for. I'm currently considering buying the Pomegranate one; however I need to see what it would look like on my quite fair skin.

Whilst in Edinburgh I picked up the Topshop Highlighter in Crescent Moon, I'd seen this before whilst in town about a month ago and then all of a sudden it was cropping up amongst beauty bloggers everywhere. I decided to take people at their word and picked one up, I really quite like it at the moment so for my first highlighter I'm pleased with the results. (I've linked you all to the highlighter section at Topshop, however Crescent Moon isn't on there for some reason).

My Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation Serum, oh how I love you! At first I wasn't too struck on this, I didn't feel like it gave me the coverage that I was after yet just after a week I had completely changed my opinion on this which lead me to give it the thumbs up! Beautiful product, gorgeous application, I love everything about it.

Lastly, my never ending search for a lip balm continues. This Blistex lip balm is doing the job ok, it is probably the best one of a huge collection that I have really. I've had this for a while so I'm trying to use it up. I'm so tempted to try the NUXE lip balm to see if it sorts out my chapped lips once and for all, you all know which one I mean and for those that don't, click here


  1. I love the topshop make up range and their highlighters are so gorgeous! X


    1. I'm liking Topshop more and more these days, my bank balance isn't though xx

  2. I'm really glad I decided to give the NUXE Rêve de Miel lipbalm a try (the pot version) since I have always been suffering from dry, chapped and even cracked lips because of eczema, and it definitely works wonders, although it was not completely able to heal them, but now, I see hope!

    1. I'm really considering it Gaby, my lips are very sore at the moment. I want something that is going to give lasting results and not just immediate relief.

      Thank you x

  3. Aren't Sleek blushes lovely? I own two (Flamingo and Life's a Peach) and they're among my favourites!



    1. They are gorgeous, they really are! :) xx
