I can't believe its November already. I swear every time I get a new monthly favourite post up, I'm always amazed or shocked that months are flying by. I have to say though, as much as I love summer this is one of my favourite times of the year. Nothing beats getting cosy and call me a tad over excited, but for me the count down to Christmas has begun. My favourite non beauty favourite right now has to be seeing all the festive decorations hitting the shops. I've not gone too crazy yet, but I know that now were in November I'll be starting to collect a few new Christmas trinkets and decorations; I have the biggest cheesiest grin just thinking about Christmas and its probably because its Archies first one, I actually can't wait. Back to beauty favourites, theres actually a lot I've been loving recently and a lot of it is has been new things that I've been trying out. Theres quite a bit here, so get comfy, grab a hot chocolate and enjoy.
Girls With Attitude Fairytale Brushes; First things first I have to talk about a few of my favourite things from Girls With Attitude. I'm sure a lot of you will have heard of this brand now as I'm constantly raving about them on my blog, but their products are just so amazing. A little while I blogged about their Fairytale brushes which are just insanely beautiful (you can see my full review here of all the brushes). Whilst I love all the brushes in the collection, there have been a few that I really love and if you're planning on getting some new brushes then these are the ones that I could not live without. The big fluffy blush/bronzer brush is just perfect. I always use this to apply my powder and set my makeup or for when I want to lightly dust some bronzer everywhere. It feels so soft and its great for blending and applying any powdered makeup. The angled blush brush is another game changer; it's so perfect for applying blush and highlight perfectly and its the angle of the brush that makes it so amazing. Just trust me on this one, you need to have this in your makeup bag. The last brush that I'm in love with is the angled brow brush. I love a good brow day and this little brush is my secret weapon to applying highlight beautifully under my brow bone; its fluffy and the angled tip makes it so easy to sleep my highlight under there. If you don't have any of these brushes make sure you pop them on your Christmas wish list.
Girls With Attitude Mermaid Lashes; Girls With Attitude are probably more famously known for their killer eyelashes. Forget Eylure and other eyelash brands. As someone who wears false lashes daily, I've tried and tested a lot and the ones from Girls With Attitude are the best. I'm currently loving the 'Mermaid' lashes; theyre so fluttery and really open up my eyes. Whenever I wear these lashes I get tonnes of compliments. I wouldn't say they're natural looking, but they're still perfect for everyday. I'm obsessed with mine and I've actually worn them loads of times, so I can vouch that they will last you for ages as long as you look after them.
Soleil Tan De Chanel; Say hello to my new holy grail product. The Soleil Tan De Chanel is probably one of those cult beauty products that I always wanted to try, but never knew if it was worth the hype. I can now see what all the fuss is about. At the moment this is my favourite high end beauty product and nothing I have ever tried compares to it. I wear this everyday, either over or under my foundation and it just gives me the most gorgeous and natural looking bronzed look. I love summer and I'm still holding on to it, yep I'm one of those girls who like to look tanned and bronzed all year round, so this product is right up my street. I just love the creamy formulation of this bronzer, a little goes a long way and it blends so effortlessly into my skin. It's just one of those products that hides imperfections and gives my skin a little more life, I love it.
Soap & Glory Archery Volu-Boost Brow Fibre Gel; Ever since I tried Benefits Gimmie Brow, I was on the hunt for a much cheaper alternative and I found it. The Soap & Glory Archery Volu-Boost Brow Fibre Gel is essentially the same product, but a lot more purse friendly. I love using this to finish off my brows, make them look a little more defined and make those sparse areas look a little more fuller. I also love using this on its own to go over my brows quickly whenever I'm having a minimal makeup day, but still want good brows if you know what I mean. My face just doesnt look right unless I've done something with them lol.
Soap & Glory Pillow Plump XXL Lip Gloss; I'm not really a lip gloss kinda girl. When it comes to lipsticks I always wear a matte, its always been my preference. However Soap & Glory have me converted. Whenever I'm taking pictures (yes those selfies for Instagram lol) I'll always pop this on as it just makes my lips look so much fuller and plumper. Unfortunately I'm not blessed with beautifully full lips, my top lip especially could do with a few lip fillers or two. As much as I would love plumper lips, getting fillers has never really appealed to me and to be honest I couldn't afford it. So the Soap & Glory Pillow Plump is a great cheat way of getting that look. I really enjoy wearing this over my nude lipsticks. Is it weird that I quite like it's tingly sensation? Let me know that its not just me!
La Roche Posay Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel; I've always loved La Roche Posay for skincare, I'd even go as far as saying its up there as one of my favourites. Their Efficlar Purifying Foaming Gel is an old rediscovered favourite. As a blogger it's so easy to not stick with a regular skin care routine, I'm always swapping and changing products just to try out different ones. However my skin was looking a little dull and tired, not to mention a bit spotty. I really hate that I'm nearly 29 and still get spots, it's the most annoying thing ever isn't it? However I can always rely on La Roche Posay to sort my skin out, it works wonders at clearing it up and helps fight those pesky spots.
What you've been loving lately? Is there is anything new you think I should be trying?
