November Favourites

As we come to the end of November, it's time to sum up my absolute favourite products of the month.

Lush Big Shampoo and Conditioner

After hearing really positive reviews about this, I decided to take the plunge into Lush hair care. As I have a lot of hair, it is very heavy and can sometimes look a bit flat, so I was in the mood for something that would give a bit of lift at the roots. The fact that this contains chunks of sea salt sold me, because I love the way my hair looks when I get out of the sea, but sea spray never works for me. This actually has the same effect, but without the horrible texture, so my hair is wavy, volumised and soft. I was intimidated by the solid conditioner (not photographed) at first,  as I wasn't sure on how to use it. I tend to rip a bit off, smush it in my hands and then rub it into the ends of my hair, making sure I leave it for a couple of minutes. It isn't the most moisturising of conditioners, although it does leave my hair feeling nice and soft, so I do make sure to use a hair mask every week. These also smell incredible. I am rubbish at describing scents, but I'd describe these two products as having a very exotic smell. According to Lush, they include coconut, lemons, limes, mandarin, orange, neroli and vanilla. The smell does last well on the hair, I wash my hair every other day and I could still smell the fragrance then! They are quite expensive products, but you really don't need to use much, especially the shampoo, which creates a wonderful lather.

Stroke of Midnight de MAC: La Critique

C'est une collection que je veux depuis je l'ai vue pour la première fois. Vu que j'habite en France, je devrais attendre quelques jours frustrants avant d'acheter quelques produits, mais quand je l'ai fait, il valu la peine. J'ai commandé la Trousse Lèvres Violet et la Trousse Yeux Nude, je l'essayais pendant toute cette semaine. Voici mes opinions...

MAC Stroke of Midnight: Review and Swatches

This is a collection that I have been pining over ever since I first saw it. As I live in France, I had to wait a frustrating couple of days after the UK release to get my hands on some of these goodies, but when I did, it was well worth it. I ordered the Violet Lip Bag and the Nude Eye Bag, and I've been trying them out for the past week. Here are my thoughts...

Nail Polish Diary de Nails Inc.

Je l'ai vu sur Feel Unique et je l'ai nécessité! Il y a 12 vernis à ongles de grande taille de Nails Inc. (un pour chaque mois de l'année) qui coûte 52€50. Vu que DHL enlevé tous mes vernis à ongles de ma valise quand mes parents l'a envoyé en France, j'avais VRAIMENT besoin de quelques de nouveau.

Nails Inc. Nail Polish Diary

I saw this on Feel Unique and I just had to. It includes 12 full sized Nails Inc. nail varnishes (one for every month of the year) for £42. Seeing as DHL removed most of my nail varnishes from my suitcase when it was sent over to France, I was very much IN NEED (ahem) of some new ones.

La Palette Bonne Étoile de Dior de la Collection Mystic Metallics

Le samedi, j'ai acheté une palette que je voulais longtemps. C'est la palette Bonne Étoile de la collection d'automne 2013 de Dior Mystic Metallics. Celle-ci est l'un de deux palettes de la collection, l'autre a les nuances mauves et les grises métallisées. La palette que j'ai achetée est bien sûr la plus 'de la terre', avec les couleurs verts et marrons. Au début, je voulais la palette appelé Constellation, mais j'ai déjà des nuances semblables, donc j'ai acheté plutôt Bonne Étoile.

Dior Mystic Metallics Bonne Étoile Palette: Review

On Saturday, I picked up a palette which I have been eyeing up for ages. It is the Bonne Étoile Palette from Dior's Mystic Metallics Autumn 2013 collection. This is one of two palettes from the collection, the other housing purples and slivers. This is definitely the earthier of the two, with greens and browns. I originally wanted the Constellation palette, but I have a lot of very similar colours, so I decided to get Bonne Étoile instead. You can find the palette here
