Monthly Favorites

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation
I love this. I used to use the Rimmel Perfect Match in the 'box' but haven't been able to get it for ages so I'm not sure if they actually do it anymore. Anyway, I had the Wake me up one which I do really like just after it's been applied but it tends to make me go really shiny as the day goes on so I wanted to try something else. I used to use MAC foundation but I usually just go with Rimmel these days as I find their products really good and they're priced really well too. So I picked this one up about two weeks ago and I really like it. I always pick up 'Classic Beige' as it's a really nice natural colour without being too dark or heavy. I will defiantly be re-purchasing

Maybelline Baby Skin 'Instant Fatigue Blur' 
In my last favorites post I posted about the Baby Skin primer which I love, love, love so when I popped into boots a little while ago to pick up another and saw this I had to try it out. I wouldn't say I like it as much as the original primer but it's close. I did pick it up with the intention of possibly wearing this alone instead of as a base under my makeup but unfortunately i don't think it's a good enough base to wear alone, that said I really like it under makeup. 

 MAC False Lashes Mascara 
Clearly I do really like this mascara or it wouldn't be in my favorites but it in no way lives up to it's name. I actually only purchased this as it claims to give a brilliant false lash effect (hence the name), it doesn't. I think it's a really natural looking mascara and I usually have to really layer it up. So if you are someone who is looking for that falsies effect, don't buy. But if you do like a good natural looking mascara this ones a winner. 

 Sleek Face form Contouring & Blush Palette 
Firstly let me just say I need a new contouring brush so if anybody has any suggestions please leave them below! I've been trying to get the one by Real Techniques but they're always sold out! They only ever seem to have it in the sets but I already have the other brushes so it's really annoying. Anyway, I finally got my hands on this a few weeks ago. I was after the fair but they only had medium and dark left so I picked up the medium as it's fine on me but I think I'm going to track down the fair too! These are about £6 so they're really inexpensive and great for beginners who just want to play around. I absolutely love the blush in this palette, it's the kind I'd usually turn my nose up at and think of it as looking cheap but it looks lovely. I would defiantly recommend this product. 

Wool Beanie Hat with Fur Pom Pom 
I had to share this with you. Winter is offically here, boo! I am loving this new hat of mine, most of you have probably seen these as this style is popping up everywhere this year. AmeliaJane have a few to choose from, I was originally going to get mine from them but including postage it was £29 which I wasn't really feeling to pay for a hat to be honest so I had a quick look on Ebay and found this one for £19.99 I'll leave the link here

Essence of Nature Candle
I'm a sucker for a candle especially for these cold winter evenings. I usually would go for a Yankee candle (who wouldn't) but I spotted this cutie in the card shop for £1.99. They have a few different scents so I choose 'rose' and it's lovely. I've used it to death and it's still going strong so they're great value for money.
