November Beauty Favourites

It's the most wonderful time of the year!! It's finally Christmas time and if you know me or follow me on Twitter you will know that I am basically an elf so it's Christmas in full force on my blog and social media! This past month I have been rediscovering a lot of old favourites as well as having two new favourite products that I just can't get enough of.

Elegant Touch Christmas Nails

This time of year is my absolute favourite so any way I can get festive - I will! I love Elegant Touch nails, I am always raving about them and I always look forward to the Christmas ones coming out. I recently spoke about the House of Ho Ho Ho nails for this year too which you can check out here (they are some of my favourite ones from the collaboration between Elegant Touch and House of Holland).

Vichy Dermablend [Covermatte] Powder Review

Recently I spoke about two of my Vichy Dermablend favourites (you can check that out here) and then this powder arrived and I have been using it so much since it arrived! I have acne prone skin which is dry in some areas and oily in others so finding a good powder for me can be a bit of a struggle but I think I have finally found one...Vichy Dermablend [Covermatte] Powder Review

Black Friday with Glo Skin Beauty

So many brands have some really great Black Friday deals this year and I just had to share the details on this one! Glo Skin Beauty isn't a brand I have tried much of previously but I have been so impressed with these products that I might just have to place an order today with the great discount available!

Two L'Occitane Favourites (+ Black Friday Deal)

I can't believe I have never tried anything from this brand before, where have I been?! I think I might have tried some shampoo and conditioner years ago but L'Occtiane is a brand I have wanted to get into for years now. They have a really great deal starting day for Black Friday so if you have been wanting to try out some products or want to get stocked up, now is the best time to do so!

Real Techniques Christmas Brush Sets

I am a long time fan of Real Techniques brushes and I have been long overdue some new ones so when these arrived I was so excited!

If you are in need of some new brushes I would definitely check these out.

Crown Pro Eyeshadow Bold Collection Review (+ Swatches)

I love an eyeshadow palette! I tried a Crown Brush palette a few months ago now and I really love using it so when the Pro Eyeshadow Bold Collection Palette arrived, I was really excited to try it out. I haven't seen anyone talk about this online and I have no idea why because it is amazing! I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it is and it's great value for money too.

59p Christmas Candles Review

I am obsessed with candles at this time of year, I just can't get enough of them. I have got to admit, I am usually a bit of a candle snob and don't usually go for anything other than Yankee Candle, Bath & Body Works or Flamingo Candles until I tried these! I couldn't believe how good they were for the price and I need to go and stock up immediately!

Latest in Beauty Cosmopolitan Party Starter Edit

Latest in Beauty is one of my favourite places to shop when it comes to beauty boxes, they do them so well! They allow you to build your own boxes (you can see the box I made recently here) but they also have collections of premade boxes which are such great value for money and this one of the brand new ones out!

Makeup Vaults seem to be a huge makeup trend at the moment and I am kind of obsessed.

A lot of brands have been launching these so I thought I would pick out and share my favourite ones. If I had the spare cash I would definitely be treating myself to one of these!

Vichy Dermablend Favourites

I have been a big Vichy fan for a while now, the Sleep Balm is one of my favourite skincare products as is the Dermablend 3D Correction Foundation. I have acne prone skin which leaves me with a lot of discolouration, scarring and texture and these two products have been my best friends recently! I forgot how much I loved this foundation.

Mad Beauty Advent Calendar

Mad Beauty has a few different advent calendars available this year and this is one of my favourites! It's the Christmas Lights version and behind each of the 24 doors is a surprise beauty treat! This would be great for any age or anybody who loves beauty! If you know of someone who can't have chocolate, this would be a great one for them too.

How I Promote My Blog Posts

I love how big the blogging community has grown, I am always looking for new bloggers to follow on every platform and catch up on all their content. The only downside to there being so many bloggers is that it can be hard for your posts to get seen, it is dishearting to spend so much time on a blog post for nobody to read it. These are the ways I like to promote my blog posts and they have been really making a difference!

New Elegant Touch x House of Holland Hair Accessories

I have incredibly long hair, it just doesn't stop growing! It's almost black too and I find that even if I do something nice with my hair, most of the time you can't even see it which is where these new accessories come in. I have fallen in love with these and have been alternating between them every day, it's so nice to be able to add something fun to my hair that actually stands out!

Urban Decay 2017 Gifting & New Sets

Urban Decay has got to be one of my favourite brands and I always get so excited when they launch new things. They have just come out with a gorgeous new eyeshadow palette for the holidays as well as some new gift sets! I love buying gift sets as they are a really good deal! I'm not sure that all of these are especially for Christmas but they would still make a great gift!

Glossier Phase 2 Set Review

If you saw my Glossier haul (you can check it out here if not), you will know I went a little mad when they launched in the UK a few weeks ago. After I placed my first order, I knew I needed to try more products so I decided on the Phase 2 Set which comes with three makeup products. They also have a Phase 1 Set available which is more skincare based and I have my eyes on that one next!

OPI Nail Polish Haul (Massive Discounts)

I have just got back into doing my nails regularly and OPI is one of my top three brands when it comes to nails. As much as I love OPI, they are far too expensive for me so I only ever buy them when I can find them discounted. Perfume Click is a newly found site for me and I have become obsessed, I can't wait to make another order soon!

Mii Cosmetics Supernova Glitter Glam Duo

Throughout 2017 I have become quite the fan of Mii Cosmetics, I am obsessed with the Wide Awake Liner and I use that every single day without fail so I was excited to try out a few more eye makeup products. This is from the new Supernova collection which would make a great gift for Christmas, especially for someone who loves eyeliner like I do!

Beauty Stocking Fillers // Christmas 2017

With Halloween finally over and done with, it's basically Christmas in my house! The shopping has begun and my tree(s) will be going up within the next two or three weeks! These are some of my favourite picks for stocking fillers or as a little something extra to gift this holiday season. These would make great secret Santa gifts too.

IT Cosmetics UK Launch & My Recommendations

A few months ago, I wrote a post about my favourite IT Cosmetics products and ever since I have been able to get them in the UK I have been obsessed. While they have been available in the UK for a while now as they are stocked on QVC and recently Selfridges, I am so happy that they have their own UK website now! I only really shop at QVC for the TSV's and I hate how expensive Selfridges' postage is.

Tarte Christmas Collection 2017

I am obsessed with Tarte products and I need to try even more! This year they have killed it with their Christmas gifting range, there are so many different kits and products to choose from! Quite a few of them are available on QVC with easy pay instalments available which I love because I like being able to spread the cost if I need too. I have never been disappointed by a Tarte product so I need to decide which set I want to get my hands on!

October 2017 Degustabox

My favourite box to get every month is Degustabox, I love getting parcels of food - who wouldn't! If you haven't heard about Degustabox before, it's a food and drink subscription service where each month you receive a box packed full of goodies to try out. I am quite a fussy eater so I like that this box helps me try out new things that I wouldn't usually buy myself.
