November Make-Up Must Haves…


When asked what make up I couldn’t be without, I struggle every time! Having looked in my Make-Up bag I managed to narrow it down (the best I could) to my absolute fave items for this month of November! However I chose the following three items to review and share with you;

1) Benefit Lemon Aid

I cannot live without Benefit’s ‘Lemon Aid’ eyeshadow primer. Don’t let the yellow tone put you off, its ideal for reducing redness and helps create a perfect base shade whilst priming the eyelid.










2) L’ORÉAL Skin Perfection Moisturiser

With the colder weather arriving and the heating now on, our skin is in more need than ever to take extra care in the mornings and I love using L’ORÉAL Skin Perfection moisturiser (pictured top right). It acts as a great primer too due to its rich texture and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily or greasy. Priced at £9.99 in


3) Benefit Erase Paste (No 2)

Another Benefit item I couldn’t live without is their ‘Erase Paste’ Concealer in shade number 2.  This concealer is a thick paste like consistency with its brightening formula it really does erase any blemishes and create an illuminating effect. Whether you want this to brightening your under eye area, hide dark circles or cover up blemishes this little pot will do it all! I use this daily and apply using a small concealer brush as the paste can get a bit mucky if you use your fingers. Priced at £20.50 in my opinion it really is worth the spend.





L’ORÉAL – Volume Million Lashes – So Couture Mascara

If you are looking for a clump-free mascara that creates a ‘false lash’ effect without the dramatic spider eyes look, then this is the mascara for you! L’Oréal have used their famous bendy pliable mascara brush to allow you to coat every lash to create a soft smoky eye look or to build up your lashes with several coats.  It’s an ideal night or day mascara that lasts without making your lashes hard or thick! I picked up this little nugget for £7.99 in Boots on an introductory offer (link below).Mascara1

The Verdict: 8/10


I am convinced that the secret to a good mascara is all in the brush…….. if you find a good mascara brush ladies keep hold of it…. you can always re-use these brushes and they make for excellent lash separators!
