October & November Beauty Favourites 2015


October and November were not the easiest of months. I won't go into too much detail because it's taken over too much of my life without taking over my blog as well. Instead we're gonna talk beauty favourites, October's and November's. I'm not gonna panic about the fact that 5 seconds ago it was July and now it's the end of November. Nope I'm not gonna even think about it. So instead let's talk favourites.

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Hot Pepper - £8.99 from boots.com

My love for the Rouge Edition Velvet formulas is well documented, but in the past I've alway been more of a Olé Flamingo/Pink Pong fan girl. In the past two months though Hot Pepper has been my go to bold lip for nights out. It is long lasting, comfortable to wear and the most beautiful, bright, pillar box red. I use it regularly anyway but can see myself getting way more use out of it during the Festive season.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in 10 - £5.99 fron boots.com

I've recently been diagnosed with adult acne, which is way more common than you'd think but still pretty horrible, and embarrassing. Anyway it's due to a hormone imbalance and whilst my medication to rebalance everything and prevent the little buggers is kicking in I have been loving Maybelline's Fit Me Concealer. I think I may even love it more than Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer (I know, may the god's strike me down!) . The coverage it gives is fantastic, and that's what I've needed. It blends seamlessly into the skin, doesn't crease and lasts hours. Application is fairly standard, with a doe foot applicator, and the colour match is really good. The shade range, is sadly, limited, with only 3 shades in the entire range and absolutely nothing for those with darker skin tones; which I think is such a shame, but otherwise it's such a good concealer for such a good price.

Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hr Skin Perfecting Full Coverage Foundation in 100 Ivory - £7.99 from boots.com

I reviewed this foundation a while back, and well it wasn't a favourable review (read it here). So how come it's one of my favourites this month I hear you ask? Well, while there are some definite formulation issues that still stand, the coverage it gives is second to none. Be it under eye baggage, redness, scarring or big, juicy blemishes, this bad boy will cover it. I like to use quite a rich moisturise before applying because it is drying, quite badly drying actually and it does sit on the skin for a while after application. But like I said the coverage it provides is fabulous and the wear time is decent too.

Burt's Bees Refreshing Lipbalm with Pink Grapefruit - £3.69 from boots.com

AKA my new favourite lip balm. Burt's Bees is amazing for lip balm, using all natural ingredients; including coconut oil, beeswax (obvs) and pink grapefruit seed oil, it's super moisturising, leaves my lips in amazing condition and smells incredible. LOVE IT!

Nails Inc in St Pancras  -  Currently Unavailable

Okay, it's official, I am in love with this colour, and it's pretty serious. It's my new favourite polish, I'm taking it off to put it straight back on again. That's how awesome it is! The obsession is so real.  St Pancras is the perfect Autumn/Winter colour; a deep wine red that makes even my short, stubby nails/manfingers look elegant and sophisticated. ALL THE HEART EYED EMOJIS!!!! Sadly telling you guys about it makes me a major tease because it's not available anywhere. And I've looked. Sorry Guys :(

Fleur De Force Lipgloss in Starry Starry Night - £6.99 from feelunique.com

There are a lot of lip products in this post... Anyway if you read my recent review of Fleur's make up line (read it here) you will know 2 things: 1. I am a BIG fan of the whole collection & 2. Starry Starry Night was my favourite item in the entire line. I'm not normally a lipgloss fan BUT the formulation of this is more like a high shine liquid lipstick rather than a traditional gloss.  It's an absolutely beautiful colour, with a really nice finish. It also smells incredible, has decent wear time and fades to a nice even stain. Love it!
