November Favourites...


Here are a few things I am loving lately...

YSL Touche Eclat - Perfect to brighten under my tired eyes!
  • YSL Rouge Volupte #2 Lipstick (Sensual Silk) I forgot how much I love this shade, it's perfect with any look and feels so luxurious on the lips.
  • MAC Snob Lipstick - Just another lovely cool pink shade...
  • Maybelline Dream Touch Blush-I love this cream blush it's such a beautiful shade, it's either peach or apricot (it doesn't indicate on the tub) it brightens my complexion with a gorgeous creamy but non greasy finish.
  • Sleek Luminous Pressed Powder - Beautiful! I have only used it a coupe of times and really love the finish it gives, I'm not sure if I could use it everyday as my skin is so sensitive as I'm wary of my skin breaking out. I would rather use my Chanel pressed powder for everyday use (not that I wear powder everyday!)
  • TRISH MCEVOY Fan Brush - I have been using this to apply the Sleek powder for a light and weightless application and love the results!
  • Sleek Eyebrow kit (Light) - I love the wax in this kit, I have been using it non stop!


    • N-SPA Vanilla Creme Brulee Shower Gel - Smells divine and you can't go wrong for £3!
    • VICTORIA'S SECRET CupQuake Body Mist - I love layering this on after I get out of the shower, it compliments the shower gel beautifully.
    • XEN TAN Deep Bronze Luxe - A much needed treat for a new mummy, a bit of a natural looking tan makes anyone look healthy. I love this particular one as it doesn't have red or orange undertones, instead it has a green tinge which enhances an olive complexion creating a lovely faux tan!


    GIELLY GREEN HAIR CARE - I was sent these at the beginning of the month, and oh my their range is beautiful, my husband has even been stealing my shampoo for his few millimeters of hair, he says it makes his hair feel "soft"! The deep conditioner works wonders but the serum is my favourite, it smells divine, detangles and softens all without weighing it down. I have been using it on damp and dry hair and I have only used about 10% of it, a definite repurchase for sure!

    Moving on!

    Meet Orly's 'Fowl Play' from their birds of a feather collection...



    I love how it looks black from far away, but upon close inspection you can see the tiny flecks of smooth multicoloured glitter. It took 3 coats to achieve the finish below and application wasn't streaky or difficult. I think it looks rather special...


    Other polishes I have been loving and will be loving some more include...

    American Apparel - Pinto, Barry M - Indigo, OPI - Jade is the new black, Essie - Sew Psyched, OPI Skull and Glossbones, Sephora by OPI - Metro Chic and Revlon - Facets of Fuchsia.


    And lastly my Eeyore phone sock! Very professional I know...


    What have you been loving this past month?

    I'm off to get a much needed hair cut, I shall update on that later! I did want to do a drastic short haircut but hubby keeps persuading me to keep it long!

    Some lovely items there hun, the cream blush looks gorg :) and goes without saying that Orly polish is boootiful! :D looking at the pics it looks kinda similar to Facets of Fuschia?? Is it, or do I just need to make another appointment with the optician? ;)

    Love Aysh xoxo

    I like this post very much. Nice products. Is this a Samsung Galaxy S I9000 mobile? Could you please suggest good android apps you use? Thank you!

    Thanks girls..

    @Aysh lol no you don't need an appt at the opticians, it is similar, but the orly is more plum and the glitter is smooth however the revlon has a distinctive black base with bright glitter chunks. But both look black from far away! :)

    @Desi in the city - Yes, it is. I don't have that many apps on it, just the basic ones, I did like the game 'Diversion' :)

    I love MAC's Snob. I've been loving Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush this month. The pigmentation is amazing and it wears for 8-10 hours!

    Schnelle said...
