Hiya you lovely lot and thank you for stopping by. Well it’s that time of the month again where I talk about the products I’ve been loving. ( ie the end of the month favourites!!)
To be honest I’ve not bought much in the way of new beauty products this month just a lot of the same old products. I have also been buying lots of Christmas pressies and it’s seems like all my money has been dwindling away. But I’ve still managed to find a few items that are really worth a mention.
I have decided not to do a “disappointing products” section at the end of the post that I sometimes do because.. well.. it’s nearly Christmas and I don’t want to put a downer onto the blog now do I!!

It’s going to come as no surprise that I’ve been loving the Aldi Lacura Makeup range. I do love myself a good dupe. My stand out product by a mile has to be the blush. The packaging is practically identical to the Nars blusher except this is a fraction of the price. The blusher is pink tone and does have flecks of shimmer in the blush. The blush isn’t as pigmented as it looks and is really flattering on the skin.

Still on the subject of makeup I have been loving the Rimmel Insta Fix & Matte  pressed powder. This powder is amazing. I have used a few white finishing powders and this one is definitely the best I’ve tried.
You guys all know by now I love the lipsticks from Primarks PS range and these new ones in the very MACish packaging are no exception. Prices start at 90p for the Lustre ones and £1.50 for the Matte ones. No surprises that it’s the Matte shade that I love the most but I would love one of each shade that’s available.

I couldn’t do a Monthly Favourites without adding a nail varnish into the mix. This month it’s still the Barry M range that I’m loving. The shade that I have been loving is Vintage Violet. I’m still not biting my nails at the moment and even though they are breaking, I love not biting them and having longer nails.
At this time of year I hate looking pale. I picked up some of the Dove summer revived and completely love it. I find it leaves such a lovely glow to your skin and everyone feels better with a tan. It smells really nice and does soak in well to your skin. I do find though if you use it too much you can turn orange but it soon washes off.

I have two body mists that I want to talk to you about. The first is from the Superdrug Layering Lab range and it’s the Blossom fragrance. This is the brands dupe to Alien perfume so I believe. It’s a fraction of the price at £3.49 for the fragrance mist ( on offer this week at £2.49).
The second one is from Poundland and was £1. It’s another dupe product and smells very similar to the Jo Malone fragrances. It’s not very long lasting but it’s great to have in your handbag for topping up during the day.

The Skincare product that I have been enjoying is the Avon lift and firm eye lift system. I don’t think you are ever too young or too old to care for your skin. I tend to switch up my skincare and I really like using extra creams around my eyes. No one wants eye bags or wrinkles and this cream is a two in one product for the upper and lower eye area. Definitely worth a try.
This is going to be my last monthly favourites post of 2018! I have decided not to do one for December as all my favourites from that month will be in my Virtual advent calendar (starting Dec 1st) which older readers to my blog will remember from last year. Instead of me doing a blog post everyday I will just pick out a product that I am loving and talk about it. I did it last year and to be honest I really love doing it!!!
I will leave the link below if you want to check out last years!!
Until next time
