Recent Beauty Besties

Hello peeps,
Is it too late for a November favourites post? Maybe, but I'm doing one anyway and since half of these stuff I have owned before November, lets treat it more as current beauty affairs. Lets go...

1) The Color Workshop Nail Polish in Gold
I got this for my birthday, a whole year ago from one my friends but haven't really used it that often. Then recently I was dying for some gold nails and gave it a shot. I've been obsessed ever since! As I'm typing, I am actually wearing it. It is this gorgeous pure gold, shimmery tone, super long lasting and quick to apply. I find it perfect for this time of the year and like to combine it with cherry red designs. The best thing is that it looks exactly the same on the nails as it does in the bottle and due to its vibrant formula, one coat is always enough.

2) Garnier Neo Deodorant 
Does this seem weird? I don't know, but I have been loving it so obviously had to include it. If you have read my beauty haul post, back from October, you will know that was the time when I got it. As you can see it is now all gone and I'm desperate to repurchase it. Basically, it's an invisible, fragrance-free, dry cream antiperspirant which is amaze balls. All I can say, is that it works the way it's supposed to. Along with that, it moisturizes, doesn't mix with whatever perfume I'm using and doesn't add to the ozone depletion! Not too mention it's super affordable.

3) Emite Diamond Heart Base Primer
This, as you may already know, arrived in my Glossy Box back in the middle of November (which you can read about here). I wasn't too excited for it in the beginning as I never really use foundation (I find it too heavy, cakey and uncomfortable to wear) and applying it under a BB cream seemed pointless as my own one already does contain a primer. But with the frosty days creeping in, I found myself reaching for extra coverage more than often. Let me just say, along with the primer, I am freaking lovin' the make-up routine and final effects. This primer has got me seriously addicted. True, it takes longer to get ready and the full sized product isn't exactly the cheapest thing ever, but the all day lasting, smooth effect of beautiful skin is worth it.  I'm not sure if it's a good thing that now I wear foundation on almost everyday basis, but as long as at the end of the day my face still looks and feels glamorous, it suits me.

4)Blistex Happy Lips Strawberry Lip Balm 
How much would you expect from a 1 euro, bought on spur of moment, available in Tesco, lip balm? Yeah, I wouldn't expect miracles either. Lip balms and my lips? These two never go along. Either too greasy, too shiny, no long term effect or dryer than they were. Complete nightmare! This stuff though? How come did I not come across it earlier?! It applies without a greasy, sticky effect, leaves the lips relatively matte but super moisturized, tastes and smells delicious and costs nothing. Big round of applause everyone.

5)Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick 415 Pink In The Afternoon
I am still on the road of convincing myself to lipsticks and definitely prefer more natural shades to vibrant cherries and purples, as of now. Receiving a beautiful, subtle rouge in the November Glossy Box was an apposite guess. I immediately knew it'll be my favourite product of all five. Its colour is so close to my own lips it's a perfect way to start off with getting used to lipsticks. But what I love the most is that it doesn't dry out an inch of the skin. It suits any make-up and any occasion and I absolutely fell for it, big time.

Have you tried any of these before? Did you like them as much as I do?

That's all for now, I'm off to do some workout. Have a great Sunday :)
