Best in Beauty | November


EEK its nearly December! I love Christmas and the winter so I'm super excited the festive season is nearly in full swing. I'm also really excited to start opening my beauty advent calendar. But anyway another month has past so it's time for another Best in Beauty. So let's get into it...

Too Faced Hangover Primer | £27  | POST

I've rediscovered the Too Faced Hangover Primer this month. With the cold weather starting to take its toll on my dehydrated skin I've been looking for ways to make my makeup look at least half decent. And this does a really good job! It's a hydrating primer packed with skin loving ingredients to help skin look more plump and radiant. It leaves my skin really soft, smooth and makeup glides on with ease.

LA Girl Pro Coverage HD Long Wear Illuminating Foundation | £9 | POST

Since I brought this foundation at the beginning of the month, I've been using only this. So as a foundation junkie I think that says a lot for how much I like it. It gives good medium coverage, in a super light blend-able formula. It is more on the glow-y side so I do like to set it and it has incredible staying power. For £8 this is amazing, it easily rivals some high end ones. I have the shade Nude Beige which is a perfect match me! See my full review with swatches here. 

RCMA No Colour Powder | £10.50 | POST

If you follow me on any form of social media this with come as no surprise. I love this powder!! I'm sure I'm not alone in hearing American beauty gurus raving about this stuff, so I think I screamed with delight when BeautyBay started stocking it. This is easily the best setting powder I've tried. Having dehydrated skin means I struggle to find powders that aren't too drying, cakey looking or that actually work. But this does everything I want. It sets makeup perfectly without being drying at all. It keeps my makeup looking flawless all day. And it also blurs my pores which is an added bonus. The only downside is the packaging  - It's in a bottle which makes it so messy. But that aside this is a brilliant powder!

Zoeva Caramel Melange Palette | £18 | POST

For eyeshadow I've been loving this new launch from Zoeva. This palette houses 10 beautiful warmed shadows that are all incredibly pigmented and butter soft. It has a range of finishes from matte, shimmery and foiled. The pigmentation of the foiled shadows are out of this world. So I've found myself reaching for this palette a lot. See my full review with swatches here.

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks | £16

I'm obsessed with Jeffree Stars makeup line, despite not being a fan of him. But I don't deny he has nailed the liquid lipstick formula, which actually makes me dislike him more haha. But the shade Celebrity Skin is gorgeous Pink toned Brown nude colour. I was a bit worried that this would be too Pink for my skin tone but it works really well. It's perfect for everyday wear. The formula of these is easily one of the best liquid lipsticks on the market. They're non drying, comfortable and so long wearing, whilst still being easy to apply! I can't recommend these enough.

John Frieda Unwind Curls Calming Cream | £5.99

I have one hair care product that I've been loving and it's this Unwind Curl Cream from John Freida. I was kindly sent a whole bunch of John Freida hair care goodies but this is the one standout product for me. I have super thick curly, dry hair so I'm alway looking for products to hydrate and smooth my hair. And this not only does that but it also makes my waves look so much nicer and more defined. It's not heavy and it doesn't leave my hair looking greasy. I put this on damp hair before blow drying and styling.

Caudaile Hand Cream | £12 (for a set of 3)

I recently got this in the LoveMe Beauty Bag (see this post for more details on that subscription) and I've been obsessed. This is such a great nourishing hand cream. It really moisturises and hydrates the skin without being heavy or greasy. It absorbs almost instantly. I've never been so impressed with a hand cream! I can't actually find this sold separately so I've linked a set of 3.

So that's everything I've been loving throughout November.

Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?

Until next time...
