November Favourites

Hello all! Well I'm a tad late with my favourites this month seeing as we are actually now into DECEMBER! (How did that happen?!) I have lots of things which are very new to my collection today to share with you all! 

First up is my Naked Basics 2 Palette (full review-here). I absolutely love this little beauty. Gone are the days when I used to think eye shadow was for night time only. This palette is the perfect mix of neutral matte eye shadows for everyday and will definitely suit everyone! If you are a bit reserved when it comes to make up or if you just aren't a fan of all that shimmer and glitter then this is the palette you need in your life! Also I should mention that Urban Decay eye shadows are just unbeatable when it comes to pigmentation. Also while we are talking about eye make up I recently won this Make Up Revolution Awesome Double Flick Eyeliner in a giveaway on the lovely Julie's blog-link. I normally stay away from cheap eye liners so it has taken me completely by surprise to find that this is just superb! The nib on this makes it perfect for winged eyeliner even if you are a complete amateur (I've been doing it for years and I still am). Also unlike basically every other eyeliner pen I have tried this doesn't seem to smudge at all! Its love!

Next up I bought this Mac Lipstick in Captive and its definitely my new favourite. I'm rubbish at describing colours but this is a sort of dark nude with a hint of berry and is just so natural yet flattering on me! Its almost like the colour I'd want my lips to be naturally. Its just gorgeous! I've been wearing it constantly and I even think it makes my lips look bigger, which is much needed! I also got this Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask in a set of three while they were on sale in Boots recently and it has definitely been helping to keep my skin soft and hydrated during all this cold weather. I use this about once a week and wake up every morning with nice soft skin. This smells amazing also!

Lastly, I picked up some of these Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets from my local Home Bargains recently. I actually cleared the shelf of them as they were ridiculously cheap at like 39p or something. Anyways I used to use these all the time to pat off the excess oil during nights out, but the buggers went and discontinued them although I'm pretty sure you can still get them from various suppliers online! Still so lucky that I managed to get my hands on a life supply though! 

To mix things up a bit I also have a favourite blogger of the month and this month it is Sammy from Little Fickle Blog! Everything she writes is just so true and she really doesn't shy away from controversial or embarrassing topics! She is definitely one of my favorites and always super easy to talk to over twitter! If you haven't visited her blog then I'd definitely recommend you do so now! 

What have all of you been loving this month?
