November Wishlist Review

Apologies for the lack of posts recently, the wonderful combination of essays, deadlines and illness has made it difficult for me to find time for blogging. However, I thought it was about time that I finally spoke about some of the items from my November Wishlist (view the original post here).

Due to financial restrictions I've been unable to try out all of the products from the wishlist - L'Oreal's Extraordinary Oil is on my Christmas list so hopefully I'll be able to talk about it in January, and I haven't got around to trying the MUA Nail Constellation either, although my housemate has bought it so I'm hoping she'll let me try and review it before the end of term.

I bought Organic Root Stimulator's Hair Fertilizer for £4.39 a good few weeks ago now and have been using it fairly regularly. This product promises to make hair grow long and strong, and so I'll probably have to keep you posted on how well this works as the three or so weeks I've been using it isn't long enough to see significant results. First impressions are that the product is a bit of a nuisance to use as the packaging doesn't give specific instructions on how long to keep it in for or whether to wash it out at all. I've been sleeping with it in to try to get maximum impact - which isn't the most pleasant thing in the world, but if it's going to make my hair grow faster then I'll try anything! In the mean time I've come up with a cunning plan to see how well this product really works - I regularly get my eyebrows threaded and after my last visit one is slightly thinner than the other, so I'm going to use Hair Fertilizer on the thin eyebrow to see if it grows any faster than the thicker one! Watch this space for the results of this hair-brained scheme (pun intended).

I've been using the set of seven Lydia makeup brushes for a good few weeks now, and although I will openly admit that I know next to nothing about different makeup brushes, I've been pleased with the results I've had from this set. At only £5 these brushes are seriously cheap, and to me they feel decent quality when using them. The brushes come in a handy carry case which makes them ideal to slip into your bag when going out, or travelling somewhere for the weekend etc. I'd definitely recommend these makeup brushes, even if just as a spare or travel set. The brushes are available from eBay - just search 'Lydia makeup brushes' and you'll soon find the whole range.

The final product I mentioned last month was the Kate Moss Matt Lipstick by Rimmel, which I absolutely love. I've bought a couple of new shades but can't see the point in writing another review, so see my full review of the lipsticks in this post. Long story short, these lipsticks are incredible value for £5.49 each - buy them!

That's everything from the November Wishlist covered, I hope you'll give some of the products a go!
