Phew, it’s finally December! Although individually each month seems to have flown by, all in all it has felt like a very long year! Lets just say I’m determined to make 2011 a better year in every way possible. I need a fresh start. It wasn’t difficult at all to pick out my favourite products of November so I shall stop waffling about nothing & begin waffling about pretty things!
November was the month I changed my pink ombre to violet ombre and loved it! Again I went with a dye from the brand Directions and the colour is simply called violet. I think it's a beautiful colour, I much prefer it to the pink & I think it suits me a lot more.
A few months ago I dropped my bottle of Lola perfume, the little spray nozzle flew off and I couldn’t find it for ages. My room got too messy to cope with, I had a huge tidy up and finally found the missing piece of the bottle! Lola is one of my absolute favourite perfumes and I’ve fallen in love with it all over again!
Superstar shampoo and conditioner by Bed Head have become my all time favourite hair products. Do they give me thick massive hair, no not really and to be honest, I didn’t expect them to. They have however definitely helped to keep my hair in much better condition and it’s so manageable now. I love the packaging and the product smells so so good. I really love these and they're such good value for money if you find a good online deal!
The cold weather has prompted me to reach for more moisturising lip products and one I’ve been using a lot is Vintage Pink from Rimmel’s moisture renew line of lipsticks. It’s quite a dark purpley-pink colour, which I don’t usually go for, but I really like this one and I feel it suits my pale complexion.
Rooting through my blush drawer I came across an old favourite that hasn’t been shown much love in recent weeks so I dug it out and remembered just why I love it so much. This is the Paris Show blush from the brand Modelista and it leaves the prettiest pink flush on the cheek with just the right amount of shimmer. It’s beautiful, so if you can get your hands on Modelista & this is still available, I’d say it’s a good purchase!
Another blush I’ve shown a lot of love over the past month is Hippy Shake from Dainty Doll. This is so unusual and leaves the most beautiful lavender toned sheen on my cheeks. I’ve been using this over a variety of pink toned blushers and it just adds something extra to my make up while still being very subtle. It’s just gorgeous, really gorgeous!
Neal’s Yard Chamomile Cleanser has popped up in quite a few of my favourites posts and I still absolutely adore it. It removes all traces of make up, even waterproof mascara, without irritating my sensitive skin in any way. It has a lovely subtle & fresh scent and it feels so luxurious as you’re using it. If I could recommend only one Neal’s Yard product, it would be this one. It’s just lovely!
Finally I couldn’t not include this in my favourites because I have used it so many times in the short space of time I’ve had it and that’s quite impressive considering I’m not really an eyeshadow person. There’s not a lot I can say about the Naked Palette that hasn’t already been said, it’s such a lovely palette and you can create so many different looks with it. It’s quite pricey I agree, but I don’t feel the need to purchase any other neutral shadows now, I have everything right here.
What were your November favourites? Have you tried any of these products?
