November Favourites

Hi Guys!,

Today is the first day of the #BigBlogmasProject!, Which means I have hopefully a post going up everyday until Christmas, aka overall 27 posts this month! So to start it off I've got my November Favourites!

This months favourites are mostly make up bar one nail polish, as I have tried quiet a few different make up looks in the past month and not changed much else! Oh and two non beauty favourites too!

Firstly I've been loving the NYC Smooth Skin Perfecting Primer, I'm not really a primer person but I've wanted to start to get into them, so for £3.99 I thought I'd try this one and for the price it really isn't that bad. I have found that my foundation stays on a little bit longer with it, when I've not had to take it off for college! 

Next up for three and a half weeks of November I've had the Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Crush on my nails! Which for me is a major achievement as I usually change them every two or three days, But I've just loved this colour so much, I have a real obsession for Matte at the moment. I found I'd have to repaint it maybe every four days due to chipping but for the price I cant complain. 

Probably my ultimate favourite of November has been my Naked Palette, I've numbered the shades I've been using to make it a little easier. I've been wearing Naked (2) In the inner corners, with Buck (1) in the crease, then Smog (3) on the centre of the lid, with Darkhorse (4) on the outer corner. Then to finish it I've been adding Creep (5) at the lashes to add definition, overall making a rather dark brown smokey eye. Which I've been wearing for mostly the whole month! 

For one of my last beauty favourites you may of seen it in my recent haul, its the NYX Mega Shine Lip gloss in Beige, which is rather popular in the beauty community for not being beige.... I've really liked it with the dark brown smokey eye, plus it tastes like the sweets I used to have in this little mini sweet shop toy I had probably back in the 90's haha. 

Then lastly for my beauty favourites is another I picked up in my recent Haul - HERE, It's the Body Shop Lip Butter in Pink Grapefruit. Pink Grapefruit is my favourite scent by the Body Shop and this just tastes and smells exactly like pink grapefruit! its really moisturising on the lips too so I think it actually does something as well as taste good!

My Last two non beauty favourites are a song and a singer who I do rave about a lot...

I have been obsessed with Connor Maynard's Song R U Crazy for the past month and I think the blame lies with my brother for constantly playing it non stop all month!

Then My favourite singer who I seem to mention every single month, Hobbie Stuart, has just released the Lyric Video to his brand new Single, Still Here, which is a song he played when I saw him in Manchester so I've been desperate for it to come out! Then he also released the music video for another song on his Debut EP, Put a Movie On, Which I now equally love too!

  2. I can't get enough of Barry M's Crush either - only thing is I find the chipping a nightmare! What top coat do you use to get yours to last four days? Mine last a day or two at most. x


  3. I love that Barry M polish and the palette! Everything looks lovely

  4. Lovely post! I've asked for the Naked 2 palette for Christmas, I can't wait to be able to create a whole range of looks with just one palette haha!
