Lust Have It Nov 2016

Afternoon lovelies!

Can you believe it's almost the end of November?  We went to the annual movie with santa that our local shopping centre holds each year on the weekend (we saw a preview of trolls, the kids loved it), which marks the start of our christmas season.  But where has the year gone?

But, i digress.  Lhi rocked up today, it was sent monday, so made fairly decent time getting here.  Let's have a looksee, shall we?
Fair bit of paper this month, 2 deals with brand exclusive plus the normal info card.
Cougar by Paula Dunne Mineral 5-in-1 Foundation-$56.25-full size

This is a teeny tiny jar, but it is cheaper than what lhi have it down as.  The same size costs £24, which roughly converts to $40.  This claims to be like thin lizzy, a colour corrector, bronzer, concealer etc, etc.  Mine's in natural light, which is quite dark (you'll see in the swatch).  It should make a nice bronzer, if nothing else.  But it's a tiny container, getting a brush in is going to be a PITA.  And for some reason when i ran my finger around the top of the lid so i could swatch, my finger came back black.  The packaging feels fairly cheap and nasty, and the colour transferring confirms that.

Cougar Mineral Face and Body Shimmer-$30.50-full size

This is in Golden Bliss, an old gold looking shimmer.  It's actually really pretty, and i think with a light hand could look really natural.  Packaging still feels cheap, but at least it's big enough to use effectively.
Aveda Color Conserve leave in treatment-sample size

My mystery product.  I love aveda products, and haven't tried this, so I'm happy to give it a go.

Rituals... The Ritual Of Sakura Shower Foam-$5-sample size

This smells heavenly!  It's organic rice milk and cherry blossom, to soften and purify skin.

Foreo Night Cleanser-sample size

This is marked on the card as a day cleanser, and there's a comp going that says for the day cleanser, so i have nfi.  So what can i tell you about this?  It smells pretty neutral, it took my swatches off easily, and it has exfoliating particles in it.  Which make no sense to me, if you're using a foreo then why do you need an exfoliant?
Look, I'm not overly impressed with the bag this month.  The makeup seems cheaply made, and the samples, whilst are all new products to me, are the most exciting things in the box.

Hopefully next month is better.
