November Favourites: Favourite products through the month

Happy New Month guys…

I can’t believe we are now in December, the last month of the year! This year feels like it has flown by so quickly.

November was such a great month and I discovered and rediscovered some fantastic products, which I kept on reaching for over and over again through the month. Here are my top 5 products

 1) Nails Inc. in Hampstead Heath

Don’t you just love it when you rediscover an oldie but a goodie. Nail’s Inc. Hampstead Heath was that product! I have had this polish for at least a year, if not more and had somehow forgotten about it. I was looking through my polishes for a nice wintery colour and this was it.
It also helps that Hampstead heath happens to be one of my favourite places in London (it’s a lovely oasis from the hustle of London and isn’t too far away for me to get to)
The nail varnish is one that I have worn a number of times over the month. Hmm, thinking about the colour, I would say it’s a light plummy shade with a hint of dark pink (I’m sure that makes perfect sense).
Sadly I went searching for it on the Nails Inc. site and it seems to have been discontinued (really?!?!) but I did find a very similar shade from Jessica, which would work just as well. So if you are interested, that one is called Blushing Princess

2) Bravura Detoxifying Eucalyptus Toner

Ok this toner honestly pulled a superhero move on my face. My skin for the last couple of months hasn’t been all that great. It has been quite congested, clogged up and dull.

Well this toner literally swooped in and saved the day. I have only been using it for about a week and a half but my face is smoother, brighter and my pores are not as clogged up.  I will be doing a full review after I have used it for about a month but fingers crossed that it keeps doing what it’s doing

3&4) Mac Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare and Sleek lipstick in Mystic

These two had to go together because well, I have been wearing them together.  In all seriousness, this has been my main lip combination over the last month. I start off by filing in my whole lip with the liner and then follow it with the lipstick on top. The lipstick is a bright purple shade and the liner is a much softer pink truffle nudey shade (I clearly could have gotten a job as a cosmetic shade describer!)  together however they turn into something quite magical. Almost every time I have worn it over the month, I have had people ask me what lipstick I have on, so it’s definitely a keeper

5) Nars Sheer Matte Foundation in Benares

My final favourite product of the month was my Nars Benares foundation. I used it a few times in the summer but it didn’t really stand up to the summer heat wave that we had. Even though it’s the matt formulation, my skin was having an oily moment over the summer period so sadly it didn’t stand a chance.

With the current weather however, it’s been perfect. It’s not too matt or dewy and it gives my skin such great coverage without looking heavy or cakey

And that’s it. What were some of your favourite products over the month? Let me know in the comments below, I love finding out what people have been loving and using.
