Hello my lovelies! So Fall/Autumn has been and gone and now we welcome Winter! As I haven’t really done a monthly favourites in so so long I thought I’d share my favourites for this time of the year in general.
First of all I love and need a good moisturizer for the colder months, and recently I have been using the Embryolisse – Lait Creme Concentre both morning and night. It just provides a really good layer of moisture to my skin. I would recommend it for those of you who have dry patches on your face and neck. However, if you’re not too keen on rich creams then this isn’t for you. I purchased the 30ml tube a few months back and I have quite a lot left so for the price I am impressed.
Okay so I finally took the plunge and purchased the Tatcha – Gold spun lip balm, and let me tell you something this is the most luxurious product I own. The packaging is beautiful, the product itself is beautiful, the fragrance is beautiful and the texture is beautiful! Oh, did I mention this product is just beautiful?! It has Camellia oil in it and gold flecks which nourishes your lips and adds a beautiful sheen to it. It really is such a gorgeous lip balm to wear, I did try to use it only for special occasions but it’s just too nice! You know everyone on YouTube saying it was perfect for under a matte lip product, well it is and it doesn’t take away from the matte look. It really does just feel divine on your lips. It is an extremely pricey product at about £32 and I purchased mine from Roses beauty store.
If you didn’t know from all my previous posts, The Body Shop have really upped their game this year and have finally come out with Matte liquid lipsticks, my favourite one for this time of the year is in the shade “Tahiti Hibiscus – 016”.It’s the perfect combination of pink/plum/red tones and it applies effortlessly on to the lips. I can’t say much for its staying power as I haven’t needed to where it for long enough to check. But the price point is amazing at £6,so if you’re around town go to your nearest store and pick one up, don’t forget to grab your points for your love your body card.
One of my go to items for the colder months is coconut oil (although I do use it all year round)! I honestly cannot live without coconut oil! I use it on my hair, my body and to remove my makeup! I recently got a hair cut and I noticed that my ends just felt dry even with all the split ends having been chopped off 😦 I decided to warm up some coconut oil in a bowl and put in my favourite hair mask with it and apply it from root to tips. I do this about twice a week now and my hair has started to become soft and silky like before. I didn’t realise just how much of a difference the cold makes to my hair but this has just helped so much. You can purchase it pretty much anywhere, I usually get mine at Tesco.
Lastly I have the NYX liquid glitter liner and who doesn’t love a bit of glitter and sparkle during winter?! I use this mainly on the top of my eye lid when I’m doing a brown smokey eye and it just adds enough glitter to make your eyes pop! I think this was around £7 as well which I think is a brilliant price considering how pigmented it is. If you’ve got plans for Christmas or New years then I’d say you need this in your life! I’ve got the gold one, sorry I’m not too sure of the name of the colour!
