November Beauty Favourites.


One: Pureology Colour Fanatic 21 in 1 Hair Beautifier
This was yet another gem from my Bloggers United goody bag that I've not put down since discovering it's awesome power. I mean, 21 for the price of 1?! My inner stinge just cannot resist! Though I don't colour my hair, and this is what this baby is designed for, I've been spritzing it through my damp locks every night, and it's done a world of difference to the frizzy, dry blob that resides atop my head. The multitude of benefits range from priming (conditioning detangling), to protection (split end treatment, repair), to perfecting (anti-frizz, smoothing, softening) and so much more. It's light, smells pleasant and works wonderfully on both dry and wet hair. Basically, stop whatever you're doing right now and pick yourself up a bottle. kthx.


Two: Nude by Nature Pressed Mineral Cover in 'Medium'
I received a sample compact of this stuff in my September Bellabox, and I've been reaching for it over Rimmel's Stay Matte of late, and we all know how I feel about that little gem. It applies almost creamy (creamy powder? Sure. Let's go with sure), and gives the skin a flawless, matte finish with a hint of colour that lasts throughout the day. It has enough coverage that I don't need to apply foundation if I'm going for a light, daytime look. Just a little concealer, a wipe of this all over my face and I'm good to go.

Three: Chi Chi Brow Pomade in 'Blonde'
 I have stuck to pencils throughout my brow shaping years, nervous to explore cream products because I'm unco.. and I hate dark, sharpie brows. Cringe. Although I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave this a whirl, I'm annoyed that it took me so damn long to jump on the cream bandwagon. This supposed dupe for The Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow is very pigmented and applies incredibly smoothly, lasting all day without smudging, fading, or drying. I still do use a pencil for the outline, but filling my brows in with this stuff has really changed the overall effect to a more defined, smooth look.


Another Blogger meet goody.. This has truly been a savour to my parched lips lately. Just smoothing on a coat at night ensures I wake up with soft, flake free, hydrated lips. It's a thick formula, meaning it stays on working it's magic for hours - even if I'm tossing and turning in bed like a death rolling crocodile #Straya.
I've been using this eye liner for years now. Literally longer than I can remember. I've tried so many others, and this is what I keep coming back to. It doesn't glide on as smoothly as smudgeable formulas (obviously) but if you're looking for solid lines that stay put all. damn. day - this is your liner. It's waterproof, smudge proof, retractable (goodbye, sharpening), and bold..what more could you want?

  1. I haven't tried any of these brands. I've never been a fan of AVON unfortunately. :(

  2. If there's ONE thing from this list you've gotta try, it's the hair beautifier - get on it, son! I've never really been too fond of AVON either, but there's one or two gems amongst their catalogue that I just keep coming back to. :) x

  4. Aha yeah, AVON's a weird one. I feel like such an old lady when I buy from them ha! But there's a few products they sell that I just can't seem to beat. :) x
