I'm a huge makeup fan shock horror and at least every month I invest in something new purely from recommendations or what's on offer when I walk into my local boots, superdrug etc.. This month i'm so excited to share what i've bought throughout November, so lets get into it.
NYX Conceal. Correct. Contour. (get it here)
I noticed this in my local Boots just yesterday as I was spending ridiculous amounts of money on their spend £50 receive £10 worth of points offer and I needed to rank up my purchases in order to get another £10 off so I opted for this, I don't actually own any type of specific cream contour, I usually use my trusty revolution powder palette, or contour with a dark/light concealer.. So i'm excited to give this a go, i've never owned anything from NYX though I know its raved about in the US its never seemed overly accessible over here until Boots started stocking it.
NYX 'Tame & Frame' Tinted Brow Pomade (get it here)
Another exciting product I picked up in Boots, I've been after a new brow product for quite a while, I'm sick of using pencils/retractable pencils that don't last very long.. this reminds me a bit of the Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade but basically a third of the price, if this can live up to a dupe of it, i'll be extremely happy.
L'Oreal True Match Illuminator (get it here)
This product has become a staple item in my make-up bag this month, L'Oreal's first multi-use liquid highlighter it really does live up to the hype. I have been applying this alongside my foundation to create a more natural highlighted glow in my base, but you can also use it as a primer or as a highlighter to enhance cheekbones / areas you would usually highlight. This beautiful inexpensive product. There are 3 shades available, all of which create a different type of highlight. - the one pictured is called Golden Glow, I think out of the three (Icy Glow, Rose Glow) Golden Glow is better used in conjunction with foundation if you want a more bronzed look.
L'Oreal Paris Infallible Matte Lip Gloss (get it here)
This is honestly one of the best lip gloss turned matte products i've ever tried, I bought the 401 - Amen, which is a perfect 'nudy pink' shade and was slightly sceptical of it drying out my lips like most matte products do, but the texture of this product is brilliant & doesn't dry out at all. This particular range has many finishes to choose from (link above) and has a very interesting contour type wand for an effortless application that almost hugs your lips?
MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish - Show Gold (get it here)
On a recent trip to visit my sister in Bournemouth (see post here) I stumbled across this little beauty in her make-up bag, MAC have recently released four different shades of highlighters which are a permanent addition to their mass range of products, you can find all four shades here but I picked out Show Gold an iridescent pink tone with a golden beam. When applied across my cheekbones it gives off a wet/dewy shine, as opposed to a glittery/shimmery shine you might find with alternative highlighters. The pigmentation in this product is insane, a little goes a long way and the lasting effect is great. I'm super impressed with this and can see it becoming a real favourite in my make-up bag.
That sums up my beauty buys for this month, what have you been buying? pop your recommendations / thoughts in the comment box below!
