November Favourites

So since I've not been blogging in so long and I'm now starting again at the beginning of December I thought the best post to start off on will be to share the things I've been loving through out November, this way I can give you a little catch up on what I was using last month/recently that I may not get round to mentioning!

Vaseline Spray & Go Body Moisturiser
This is my all time favourite body moisturiser by far! The thing that makes it my favourite is how it is just an easy spray bottle and it will be done within minutes. I have always been so lazy whenever it comes to body lotions as I just hate having to apply it myself, whereas with this spray, I can just spray all over and give it a quick rub in - it's so easy. I have this in 'cocoa radiant' and it smells absolutely amazing, cocoa butter is one of my favourite scents especially for body lotions, honestly I would happily wear this scent for a perfume, I love it!

L'oreal True Match Foundation in W4 Golden Natural
I had this at one point but only really used it a few times and then gave it to my mum as I wasn't using it, so at the start of November I thought I'd give it a go again and I've been enjoying using it.  This foundation has a very silky, flawless finish with a light to medium coverage, if you was looking for more of a full coverage I would definitely use this with a good concealer and a nice powder to compliment it as I do! It would be lovely to wear alone also if you are looking for a more light and natural coverage.

Mac Pro Longwear Concealer in NC20
I have heard so many people rave about this concealer and so I have finally got round to it myself! I absolutely love using this concealer over my foundation as a highlight, whereas to hide blemishes etc. I prefer to use the Cover FX Cream Concealer (which I will definitely get round to doing a post on at one point). As for this it goes on so lovely over foundation and as I have chosen a shade lighter than my foundation, this makes it perfect to highlight the areas I apply it to. I would 100% say a little goes a long way with this concealer, I actually always find more comes out than what I actually need but this is due to the way the pump is which can be annoying because I hate to feel a little gets wasted everytime, boo hoo.

Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Cherry
I am absolutely obsessed with red lipsticks and I hate being without a red lipstick on my lips! I bought this back in August and I have recently been wearing it day in day out for the past month, it is a darker shade of red and so is perfect especially during the autumn and winter seasons. It isn't extremely matte which I am very happy about as I hate that matte feeling on the lips, it is more of a sheen finish but definitely isn't too glossy. I know I will still be using this throughout the December month!

theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter
In all honesty this is the first highlighter I have ever actually tried and I have fallen madly in love with it! I feel like this is always a must now, although I am still yet to buy a decent brush to apply this with as I have been using a fan brush for the time being. The pigmentation of this highlighter is absolutely amazing and a soft sweep is really all you need, its great and looks stunning. I love this for more of a glow and I feel it takes away that sort of blandness from your face, if that makes sense hahah!? Definitely completes any make-up look.

I'm Back!

It has been way too long since I last posted on my blog, these past two years have flown by it is just insane! I have honestly missed it so much and I have recently came back looking on my blog and just realised how much I have missed having this as a fun little hobby and now I have a job and have left school, it is a lot easier now for me to carry on with this and maintain it and I cannnnot wait.

I started blogging in 2012 but during this time I was still in school, so I found it very hard to be able to keep it up so frequently as I didn't have the money due to not having a job, so I had to save up to buy things to then blog about and share with you all but now yes - I have my own money, thank god! I'm so excited to get back into this and I will be a lot lot lot more active now and organised with my blogging, so wish me luck :-)
