Can I just be really generic and say - WHERE HAS THIS MONTH GONE?! We even had an extra day but it feels like it's been super short.  I've not done a favourites post in forever but I'm going to make them a regular thing from now. I'm not wasting any more time babbling on because I've got a lot to say about these products and I don't want to bore you senseless! 

Twinsters Documentary - Not many people know this about me but I have a massive thing for documentaries. I discovered Twinsters by chance on Netflix and thought I'd give it a go. Turns out to be one of the best documentaries I've ever seen! I don't want to spoil it but it's basically about a girl who finds her identical twin sister on the internet. It's a lot more interesting than it sounds. It's one of those things that makes you cry but makes your heart feel all fuzzy at the same time. I think you should watch it if you've got a spare hour and a half (basically the amount of time you spend searching for something to watch on Netflix). 

Emporio Armani Diamonds - I've had this perfume since September and I've always loved it but I've just been more into this month for some reason. It's one of those perfumes that makes you feel instantly stronger and more fierce - do you get what I mean or am I not making sense?! It's very fruity and feminine whilst being grown up at the same time. I even love the bottle despite it being the worst thing to photograph ever. An instagram lovers nightmare. 

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation - I feel like everyone is aware of the existence of wake me up. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know I'm a huuuge fan of Estee Lauder double wear. I don't wear anything but that normally but recently I've been trying to use a cheaper foundation on days where I'm not really going anywhere special. I love wake me up because of the glow it leaves on your skin, it makes it look illuminated and fresh as if you've drunk gallons of water instead of twelve glasses of vodka. Love it. 

Barry M Speedy Quick Dry in 'Pit Stop' - I'm heavily into grey nail polish at the moment and I can't get enough of this bottle in question mainly because of the brush. The brush is thick and covers your whole nail making application an absolute breeze. You probably only need two coats of this but I like to make sure you can't see any nail whatsoever so I just give it three in case. It dries really quickly anyway so you don't feel like your wasting any time! 

Illamasqua Precision Gel Eyeliner - I appreciate £20 for an eyeliner is quite excessive but this is honestly a DREAM. The eyeliner comes without an applicator so I just use a Maybelline brush I got with an eyeliner once to apply. I've never experienced such perfection, it glides on to your eyelid with ease, no need for a heavy hand. It's the blackest of black and literally doesn't budge all day. It stays the same as when you've first applied it. Well worth £20! 

Duo Eyelash Adhesive -  I've actually a written a whole post on this beauty which you can read here. I had a meltdown last weekend because I couldn't find it anywhere. Thankfully, me and my baby have now been reunited. 

Fake Bake Flawless Darker Self-Tan Liquid - I usually prefer cheaper fake tans ie St Moriz, Cocoa Brown but I've been really into Fake Bake this month. What I like most is how easy it is to apply - literally spritz on the skin and rub it in. It's a lot easier to apply than cheaper tans and the application is less streaky. I really love the colour - it is definitely dark - I wouldn't recommend it for people who are just starting out in the fake tan world because the shade will scare you off for life. Longevity is also great as it stays looking perfect for a good 4 days. 

Superdrug Cucumber Peel Off Mask - This mask takes me back to being about 9 years old when I stole my mum's peel off mask and applied too much of it and stung my eyes so much I thought I'd be blind forever. It couldn't have scarred me that much since it's made it to my favourites though. This one is super refreshing and leaves your skin feeling so clean. It dries pretty quickly too. I love that really tight feeling where you can't wait to just rip it off! 

Have you tried any of these products?! If so, did you love them as much as I do?
