November Favourites.

I've never done one of these posts, but I've been loving so much stuff recently that I don't get chance to review it all. So I'm going to jump on board and start a monthly favourites post - here's November's.

Witch Pressed Powder £1.99 - I'd been looking around for a pressed powder literally to just take away some of the oilyness in my skin throughout the day. I'm really happy I found this one, with it being made by Witch it doesn't have anything in that causes me to break out - which can only be a good thing. It's also fragrance and oil free so is quite friendly towards my skin. Another bonus is it's less than £2 in Bodycare. I'm pretty gutted that I smashed it in my bag though - that's the only downside to pressed powder! I will be picking some more of this up though!

MUA Lipstick Shade 13 £1 - Okay, everyone in the blogging world has heard of this brand. I fell in love with MUA products some time ago and this one is no exception. I love how classic the colour is - a 'proper' red. I've struggled to find a colour that actually goes with my skin/hair this one seems to go quite well - although I have to be careful not to go overboard and look like a 3 year old playing in Mummy's make up bag!

UNE Intuitive Touch BB-Cream Foundation £14.99 - I picked this up after being advised from the nurse to find a 100% natural make up. It has a very unique set up, it's kind of like a cream blusher but foundation. It goes from cream to powder when applied and comes with a little brush - but to be honest I prefer using my hands. One major downside to this foundation is the size - it's only 6g and I've been using it two weeks and can already see the bottom. Although I really like this foundation on my skin I'm not sure I would repurchase purely cos of the size/cost.

Anatomicals Banana Lip Balm - I may have been quick to judge this products, after I received it in my Selfridges Lucky Bag and was , to say the least, less than impressed. But after getting over the initial annoyance I've grown to love this lip balm. The banana smell is quite nice, not over powering and the lip balm isn't too banana-ry in taste. It's SPF 15 which its fab to have for daily use! I don't love the consistency purely cos it reminds me of lip gloss and I've never been a fan of that sticky-lip feeling. However it does do as it says on the tin, and helps when the Winter gets the better of my lips!

Collection Lip Cream Puff in Cotton Candy £2.99 - I bought this a while ago and loved it, but lost it somewhere along the way. I popped into Boots last week and fancied picking myself a new one up. This is like a lip gloss but turns into a lipstick. It really glides on well and leaves a lovely matte finish. It lasts for ages too - even after a few glasses of bubbly on Tuesday. It's a fab price too - a must if you're after a cheap lipstick alternative that doesn't dry your lips out.
