November Favourites: Eyes, Face & Hair


November's been a productive month, I've finished the first unit of my course and made a start on my first assignment, my blog's media pack is now finished and I feel as though the quality of my content is on the up. As such, I've treated myself to a few new things in the make-up & beauty department, and here's a round up of my favourite products I've been using:

Loreal Paris True Match: Probably an all time favourite, I haven’t owned one of these foundations since the bottle’s remodel but it’s always done well for my skin, with the Rose Ivory shade being just right for my skin tone.  The foundation cost £9.99 from boots.
Garnier Pure Active Micellar Cleansing Water: Using this before washing my face, or face-masking, I find it’s great as a burst of freshness. It's also useful for getting foundation off when used with a cotton pad. Currently £3.29 at Superdrug for 400ml, I've had it for two months and only used a third of it so far, so it's definitely value for money.
Garnier Ultimate Blends, Honey Treasures Strength restoring conditioner: On offer for £1.93 at Superdrug, I’ve been using this to mix in with hair dye to achieve lighter/pastel shades and it virtually stops the damage from the dye’s chemicals, keeping it soft.
InstaNatural Organic Argan Oil -  Applying this to the ends of the hair, I’ve found it looks more nourished, with my hair knotting together less during the day.

Maybelline Master Ink, Satin Black Eyeliner: I’ve been needing a new one for a while, and wanting to try something new, I came across this eyeliner. I usually opt for the felt tip type, but with the previous two I’d purchased fading out so that any line I tried to apply would be a washed grey tone, I thought I’d go for this one and for £4.99 (Superdrug) it applies easily and doesn’t fade or chip off throughout the day.
Maybelline Matte Maker: Previously, I used Loreal Paris’ True Match powder, but found that it bought up every bit of face fluff I had no idea was there. This one by Maybelline, sits on the face much more lightly, and I haven’t noticed any furry breakthroughs yet. The powder costs £3.99 from Superdrug, so is much cheaper than the tenner I was spending on Loreal Paris' renowned powder.
Loreal Paris Miss Manga: The highly advertised miss manga mascara was one I’d been wanting to try for a while, and it hasn’t disappointed. The only negative I’ve found is that it lengthens my lashes the point where they brush against the lens of my glasses. That can’t be avoided though, as I have naturally long lashes anyway. For £7.99 from Superdrug, it's a good value, staple high street buy.
Wild About Beauty Powder Eyeshadow, 06 Alana: I’ve had this eyeshadow for a while now, but haven’t really given it the time of day until a few weeks ago…and I’ve been wearing it since. The brown is matte but holds a faint shine. Packed with Aloe Vera & Vitimins E & C, the shadow features the shape of a bumblebee upon opening. At £13, it's quite pricey for just the one colour,  but it's worth it as the staying power is quite something.

Revolution Ultimate 144 Palette: I received this (from the boyfriend) for my birthday and wow. Words can’t describe how good It felt opening the packaging, the grid system on the case, with a eyeshadow colour peeking through under each translucent square. I cried. I realise that’s dramatic, but so are each and every one of the colour combinations I can now make. Aaah. (I grilled for the price, and it was on offer for £10, RRP £20, meaning each shade cost 14.4p…I’m still not over that deal and it's still on offer now!)

That's it for November, time to see what December's got to offer. :D
