#2 What Did I Buy This Month? - November




Is it just me or has this month flown by? I can't believe we're coming up to the end of this year, life definitely goes too fast, and seems to go quicker as you get older.  I'd be quite happy staying eighteen I think! I spent quite a lot this month, I visited my friend Becca at university in Lincoln which was definitely a weekend to remember, and I've been very busy with applying to university and making important adult decisions, so quite a bit of retail therapy was needed (excuses excuses). Plus, the Superdrug 3 for 2 offer has been on, which would have been a crime to miss.

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation £7.99: Just a re-purchase, but this is about my fourth bottle so it's definitely been a well loved product. It blends beautifully into the skin and True Ivory has been the best colour match I've found for my skin on the high street.
Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in 107 £3.84: I couldn't resist picking up the highly coveted shade 107, especially when I saw on Twitter that it was going for this bargain price on ASOS! It's such a beautiful berry red, and it's lasting power is amazing.
BarryM Nail Paints in Black Multi Glitter, Amethyst Glitter, and Matt White £2.99: I saw Amethyst on a few blogs, and decided I just had to buy it. It's absolutely beautiful, and I'll be doing a post on it soon. I've needed a white polish for a while and this was cheap and cheerful.
MUA Cream Blusher in Dolly £2.00: I love cream blushes, so this has been on my list of products to try for a while. I love the colour, it's a gorgeous peachy shade.
MUA Blusher in Shade 5 £1.00: I picked this up last minute for the 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug, and I haven't actually tried it yet. I just thought it was a lovely colour and I can't believe it was only a pound!?



Garnier Pure Active Exfo-Brusher Wash £5.00: I really didn't like this product. I have pretty bad skin, and this made it a whole lot worse. I think the bristles may have been a bit harsh, because I broke out in places I've never broken out before. Safe to say I stopped using it straight away.
Soap & Glory Clear Here £8.99: This is a re-purchase, I have oily skin so this oil-control formula is perfect as an everyday moisturiser. It also unclogs pores and helps to soothe and keep spots at bay.
Soap & Glory The Righteous Butter £2.50: So I cheated on my beloved The Body Shop Body Butter, and decided to try a mini of this. I love it a hundred times more, it takes half the time to sink in and leaves my skin feeling so amazingly soft.
Soap & Glory Flake Away £2.50: Winter months = dry skin, so it was only fair on my body that I picked this up. I love the smell, and it goes great with The Righteous Butter.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Wash and Mask £2.99: I love that this is a 2 in 1 face wash and mask, it's such a great product to have on the shelf in the time of a skin emergency, which I have plenty of.
Neutrogena Spot Stress Control Daily Scrub £2.99: This is harsh enough to make a difference, but gentle enough to be used everyday. It's great for my oily skin and has definitely helped to improve my skin.
Missguided Berry Peplum Dress £24.99: I'm really trying to build up my 'going out' collection of clothes, as I never seem to have ANYTHING to wear. It was love at first sight with this dress, I love the bralet detail, and the peplum waist is sexy and flattering. I also thought the colour was perfect for this season.
Primark Black Suede Heels £16.00: I hate the shape of my feet with a passion. It's always difficult for me to find shoes that fit me properly, and especially heels. I've been trying to hunt down a pair of classic black heels for a long time, and the last place I thought I'd find them was Primark.

I really need to start Christmas shopping, I can't believe some people have already finished when I haven't even started! But it is very like me to leave things last minute, it wouldn't surprise me if I was one of the crazy people who did it all on Christmas Eve. I'll try my best not to let that happen though.

What have you bought this month? Have you tried any of these products?

  1. Are you sure you don't have anything to wear... or just too much choice? haha I know how you feel because I'm exactly the same. I need to blow hundreds of pounds on new clobber just so I feel like I'm back on trend! xx

  2. I bought far too much this month, I wouldn't even like to go through it all! These are some lovely bits though. I love the Rimmel foundation but the ivory was too dark for me :( Soap and Glory bits are always a neccessity around Christmas time. xo

  4. I'm pretty sure I had those exact same Primark heels last year and they were amazing! Can't believe how long they lasted for the price. I really want to purchase the Kate Moss lipstick in 107!

  5. Hi just came across your blog. I really like this post, very informative.
    Also love the colour of the dress, burgundy/berry colour is so festive for the season :)
    I also had a similar problem with the garnier face wash, the bristles are quite harsh...

    I'm new to blogging - basically a beginner! I was wondering if you'd check out my blog? and if you enjoy follow?
    I follow back :) and I'd really appreciate it. I'm grateful for feedback too :D

  15. I love the snowflakes. So cute.

    I really didn't like that Rimmel foundation. Everyone raved about it but I was quite disappointed. Maybe it was incompatible with my skin-type because my friend loved it. I'd love to try that Barry M polish though.
