The November Favourites


Hi guys! I've been so bad with my blog in the last fortnight or so as I've been swamped with deadlines, but now they are over (high five!) I'm excited to hopefully post a bit more regularly. As I haven't done a favourites post since August, I thought I would show you what I have been loving this month. 

Hair wise I have been using the V05 give me texture texturising spray pretty religiously. I wouldn't say it's incredible but I really like what it does to the top layer of my hair as it mattifies and adds a bit of texture (pretty self explanatory!). Oribe's Maximista volume spray has also been a firm favourite, and I have reviewed it here

For nails there has been only one colour for me this month, which is Essie's After School Boy blazer: a super shiny navy blue/black. I think it was limited edition but I got mine from Beauty Bay and I think they still sell it there so give it a try. Skincare-wise, I have been loving La Roche Posay's Effaclar Mat. As a huge fan of their Effaclar Duo, I thought I would give this a whirl and I'm pretty impressed by it. I get quite oily skin and when I have breakouts/feel especially oil-slick-like, I use the Duo at night and the Mat in the morning as a makeup base. 

There's been a whole load of makeup I've been liking over the past few months, including some new bits and a few old firm favourites. Sleek's blush in 'Suede' is a really nice matte wintery colour which I keep reaching for. For base, I cannot get enough of the YSL Youth Liberator foundation, which at first I thought was too oily for me, but used with the Effaclar Mat I find it gives a lovely non-oily glow. Paired with the foundation, I've been trying out the Makeup Forever Full Cover concealer. As it's been stress central in my flat lately with deadlines etc, my skin has really been suffering so this has been AH-MAZING at covering up under eye circles and blemishes. My Mac palette (post here) has been in my heart (and on my eyes) for most of the month, and the Rimmel Smokey Purple quad has also been a joy to use. Last but not least (and continuing on with the purple theme) is the Topshop Velvet Lips in Plush. I keep hearing that these have been a massive sell-out and are really hard to get hold of. The colour I picked up is absolutely beautiful and the finish is exceptional. The only downside to these is the staying power; any eating or drinking and they budge quite significantly. 

What have you guys been loving this month?
