November Favourites

Hello :)

I'm taking a break from all this studying malarky to indulge in some blogging and what a better time than to do my first monthly favourites! I love reading these type of posts and I find they are my biggest temptation, I always want to go and buy everything!! So here we go...

Bourjois Bronzing Powder: I have used this bronzer for such a long time, it's a lovely lovely colour (not orange or muddy) and also it smells like chocolate which is an added bonus!
Revlon Contour Shadow Brush: I've been reaching for this brush pretty much everyday for the last couple of weeks. It's a brilliant blending brush as it's really fluffy and soft though it isn't too big for my eye.
Gosh Nail Lacquer in 60 Lambada: I love a good red nail polish and this colour is simply lovely :)
Schwarzhopf Dust It: This is probably my most used hair product, it's a mattifying powder that gives your hair increadible volume, i'm not going to talk about it too much as I want to do a seperate post reviewing it, including an explanation of why everyone should have 'dust it breaks' on a night out :)
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil: I use 001 Dark Brown to give you an idea of the colour. I really like this product as it's a hard pencil so wont smudge when applied to your brow. Also, it's quite cheap!
Mister Mascara False Lashes: I think this is such a brilliant idea, you get two sets of lashes, one for during the day and one for night, both pairs are really pretty and not too false looking, also you get a fab case to keep them in.
The Body Shop Kabuki Brush: I've talked about this before but it's an amazing brush for the price, its such a soft brush and really buffs in powder beautifully! Overall i'm really impressed with the quality of the body shop brushes!
Benefit California Kissin': I first tried this lip gloss in miniature version in one of the benefit kits and really liked it. It's supposed to make your teeth whiter (to be honest i'm not too sure) but it's lovely and minty and fresh and is just a nice everyday gloss.

Hope everyone is well and remembering to open their advent calanders!

Lots of love

  1. i really want to try the bourjois powder! so sad that sephora doesn't carry them anymore. which color do you have?

  2. he 2nd blogger today that has had the Bourjois bronzer in their favourites!!!! I must get some.. Is it a plain bronzer? or does it have like a bit of shimmer too??? The falsies are awesome! day and night set thats really "innovative" lol x

  3. ha ha that shows how wonderful it is!! When you look at the powder it has some sparkles in it however when its actually on my face i've never ever noticed them :) xx

  4. And vi I think it only comes in one colour but it says number 52/bronzing powder xx

  5. I have the bourjois bronzer, but i think it makes me look abit orange.. I think thats because i'm really super pale !
