November Favourites

Sorry ... been slacking a bit this week, so my favourites post is a day late (and I haven't done my last #monthofveganlips round-up yet, but I'm trying to get that done by tomorrow!

So I'm going to jump right in.

TV:
Jessica Jones (Netflix). We have watched 8 episodes so far and are hooked! It's awesome! Is anyone else watching?  We loved Daredevil too but this is even better. Also, because Krysten Ritter is so bad ass, it was easy to convince Simon to give Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23 a go! He loves that too, so I'm getting to rewatch it! YAY.

Food:
To be honest I have only really been loving the Alpen Light Jaffa Cake cereal bars and the Hula Hoop puft crisps.... because they are a godsend when you're on Slimming World hahaha.

Makeup:

Revolution Highlighter - Gold Lights
I love highlighter, my face doesn't feel finished til I'm glowing like a discoball. My fave is probably the Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm. However, that is kind of pricey and there are some fab budget ones out there (should I do a post about highlighters??) I dug this one out the other day, It's Revolution's Gold Lights highlighter. This is a super heavy swatch, I promise it's not that crazy when it's on; it's a beautiful light gold highlighter with a lovely shimmer - not too glittery!

Tanya Burr Fairytale Eye Palette
I've posted before about the Tanya Burr Palettes, in fact I think the Galaxy palette was in last month's faves. However, as time has gone on, this is the one I have got the most use from; the Fairytale palette.

It's because the colours are just so damn useful! It has a perfect highlighter/brown bone/all over lid shade, it has a perfect crease colour, it has a matte black and a pretty shimmery brown. You can probably see the wear on it, because I use the top 2 shades pretty much every day!

Revolution Blush Singles
I've been loving these blushes from Revolution too this month. They are £1 each! But they are suprisingly pigmented and blendable. (I am also a huge fan of their blush palettes, which are only £6 for 8 colours, so even better value!)

Crazy Rumours Lemonade Lip Balm
Now that it's winter, I'm constantly applying lip balm, because my lips get mega dry. My favourite lip balm is Crazy Rumours, which you can get in Holland & Barrett; this one is Lemonade. It's lovely.

Josie Maran Watercolor Cheek Gelee in Poppy Paradise
Something I bought in New York - I LOVE this. I am so sad that you can't seem to buy them here (QVC sells JM products but not these), but thankfully Sephora ships to the UK now, with no additional customs taxes! :o)

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks 
Speaking of no import taxes when you order from Sephora; I've been loving these liquid lipsticks this month too. The formula is great, the wand is the perfect shape for an easy application and they really do last. I have 4 of them now and I need MOAR!


B. Vibrant Eye & Cheek Colour in Prom 
I discovered this when I bought it for my #monthofveganlips and I love it. It's a lovely mauvey pink and perfect for every day, wearable makeup looks.


Hourglass Veil Foundation
I forgot to take a new pic of my last fave; but it's the Hourglass Veil foundation (my shade is Porcelain). I use the lightest shade and it's a bit yellow for me. However, when it's blended in it looks great and it has a beautiful finish. Now if only it weren't so dang pricey! 

What have you been loving this month?

  1. Hmmm, what've I been loving this month? Finding a bakery on Koh Lanta with amazing ciabatta, fresh noodles from the local market and watching First Dates on E4.

  2. Krysten Ritter is awesome. Love Jessica Jones and Don't trust the B. I even liked her in Breaking Bad!

    Currently I am loving Lush's don't look at me mask, dark chocolate espresso batons from Trader Joe's and pb&j smoothies with almond milk from Jamaba Juice.

  3. I love your nail polish in the second to last picture! Those lipsticks look beautiful too! Thanks for the Jessica Jones tip. I saw it on Netflix and made a post-it note to remind myself to watch it.
