November Mini Haul with Reviews

So it's that time again, monthly haul time! I'm not sure how many more of these I'll have so this month I did treat myself to some goodies.

Sally Hansen Gel Cuticle Remover - This stuff is magic, just leave it on your cuticles for a minute or two and just like that your cuticles are gone! This stuff is £3.50 and as you only use a small potion at a time it's something that will last you a long time. I love using this as an extra step when doing my nails, I feel as if I've had a proper pamper treat.

Essie Nail Polish in After Sex - Excuse the name of this nail polish but this colour is gorgeous. It's a stunning red with a strong festive feel. I love Essie nail polishes as they always last well on my nails and they're so easy to apply. Just please Essie, can you reduce the price? £7.99 for a nail polish is quite steep (I just tell myself as I do my own nails I'm saving on manicures, haha!).

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lip Colour in Nude-ist - Now where do I start with this. This looks like a lipgloss but it's finish is more of a lipstick but acts as a lip stain. Confused? Yes, me too! It is the most amazing lip product I've tried all year. You put it on in the morning and even by late afternoon it will stay on my lips, through drinks and food too! The colour is a gorgeous brown/nude shade that has a hint of red - lovely for this time of year but also throughout the year too. I must buy more of these, they are simply beautiful and so long lasting without being too drying! A new favourite product!!

Zoella Soap Opera Bath Soak & Shower Cream - Well if you know me you will know that I love watching my YouTubers, one being Zoella. She is a beautiful, confident young lady who started her YouTube channel as a hobby but has made it into her career. She has now launched her own beauty range as well as bringing out a book and all at the age of 24! Yes, she is wonder woman! Now, I wasn't sure if the Bath Soak would live up to my high expectations but amazingly it did, it's got a gorgeous clean and fresh scent and a little goes a long way. I also love the packaging of the product, one I'll be happy to show off in the bathroom for other beauty fans to appreciate. All in all, lovely product, and I'm so proud to see how far this lady has come. I may not know her personally but I think it's incredible on the things she has done and at such a young age! Zoella you're a great inspiration for all ladies and young ladies out there, be proud!

Mac Lipstick in Cremesheen Hot Gossip - Yes I visited the Mac counter again... This time after doing my favourite Mac lipsticks blog post I realised how little colours I had that were deep and darker shades for the colder months. I went out to try and find two shades that were slightly out of my comfort zone so I could wear them this Autumn and Winter. I decided on two shades, Hot Gossip and New York Apple. Hot Gossip is a gorgeous deep purple/pink shade that would suit all year round, but especially in the cooler months. I've been wearing this to work, around the house (as a treat), as well as just out and about. It's just an all-round lipstick you can wear for any occasion.

Mac Lipstick in Frost New York Apple - This shade is a lot more daring for me. It's a deep red shade with a strong frosty shimmer. Simply put it's very festive and matches the Essie nail polish I bought perfectly. This is a very buildable colour that you can have just one application of it for a subtle finish, or go all out and build it up to a full blown deep red lipstick, lovely!

Tanya Burr Everyday Flutter Lashes - Tanya is another YouTuber that has launched her own beauty range, I have already tried her lipglosses but as of recently she has also launched some false lashes. I don't usually wear false lashes but thought I would give the Everyday Flutter lashes a go as the finish looked gorgeous and very wearable for the everyday (even though I would still only wear them for special occassions). These are gorgeous, so easy to apply and lightweight so you can barely tell you're wearing them. The finish they give is so natural I just feel as if I'm a different person having these on. I will definitly be getting some more of these at some point, love love love!! :)

So that is it for this month's haul, short and sweet but with a few extra special goodies.

Did you ladies get yourself anything special this month? Is there anything you think I should try myself? :)

Thanks again for reading!
