The Exit Interview Series: Volume #3

Along with this month's favourites, here are the products I managed to use up:

Lycia Make-Up Remover wipes are my go-to make-up wipes that never broke me out or irritate my eye area like most other wipes do.  I buy a bak-up of them each time I am half-way through the packet I would be using!

La Roche Posay Effaclar M moisturiser this is my first bottle of this moisturizer and it has lasted me 4 months! I have already bought a back-up of it because I love the instant matt look it gives my complexion and it keeps me shine free almost all day!

Nivea Extra Gentle Eye Make-up Remover was being given for free with the Nivea cleanser I used that time so I decided to give it a go.  Although it removes make-up easily, I won't be buying this again as the Lycia wipes do the job just the same. I will keep the bottle and fill it with my own make-up remover (olive oil & bottled water) for days when I wear more make-up.

e.l.f. Eyelid Primer is seriously the best eye primer ever! It keeps my eyeshadow on all day/night and costs only €1.70! I had bought a back-up earlier this year which I only opened last week because this product lasted me a whole year and a half! How great is that?

I have more products which I want to use up so expect to see another post like this next month!  

Hope you are all geared up for Christmas!

November Collective Haul

Hello lovelies :) Here's what my bank balance was ungrateful for this month :P

Let's start with something boring this time; I bought some contacts for all my up coming graduation ceremonies over November and December.  It's not my first time wearing contacts but I reserve them for special occasions only.  These were €18.

I also bought some 1940s inspired back seamed tights which are very in at the moment.  This pair was €4.50 and I have also ordered another one off ebay today.

Obviously, a collective haul from me is bound to have something nail related :P This time I bought another two China Glaze polishes, For Audrey (which I bought for obvious reasons) and Snow Globe from the Holiday 2011 Collection (they cost around €4 each).  I'm very fond of them both and I can see myself wearing them a lot :) Here are some pictures:

Also nail related is this flower mold which I got from ebay for less than a €1! I have a tutorial coming up on how to use these molds:

I also bought this book about Audrey Hepburn which is written by her first born son, Sean.  It contains over 300 photographs of this wonderful woman and it is a must-have for any fan of hers! I bought mine online on the for €13.

The other day. Mum was shopping at the supermarket and there was an offer going with some sanitary towels and she scored a free Max Factor lipstick worth €10. She chose the shade 710 Midnight Plum:

She also bought me this train case which will come in handy when I need to visit clients for their nail appointments as I can carry nail polishes and nail art supplies in style! Also, she bought me this long top when I was shopping with her yesterday.  I fell in love with the soft material, the colour and the bows on the top and she bought it for me :)

Last but surely not the least, here is a pair of earrings that Johan bought me. I saw these and thought they were cute but I have to prioritize my spending these couple of months so I figured I'd buy them another time; but he went back and got them for me :)

I am waiting for some stuff to be delivered in the coming weeks but overall, I really didn't spend much this month as I had to prioritize with my graduation celebration and Christmas coming up :)
