I’m always trying a tonne of new and exciting products, and endeavour to bring you only the creme de la creme of the bunch. Blogger hype is a difficult thing not to give in to, and a multitude of shiny and new products often tempt the more Magpie like side of me, but it’s always great to have a second opinion on all things beauty before you part with the monies. The following lot, however, have stood out from the crowd of autumn/winter releases for me and all earned their spot in my daily rotation of products. Perhaps they might in yours too …

Thoughts? *insert applause emoji* You know my thoughts on beauty boxes by now, they can so easily turn into endless samples of products that are unsuited in shades and formulas that you would never wear, but Get the Gloss x Latest in Beauty have really outdone themselves on this account. From the amazing Eyeko liner to the St Tropez lotion, there isn't a thing in there that I haven't loved. Best of all, they're all in the perfect mini size for taking on a winter break. At only £15.95 for over £60 worth of products, this is one collection of goodies that you shouldn't miss if you're passionate about finding new products.
Laqa and Co Cheeky Lip in Humble Brag - Housed inside a beautiful and luxurious gold tube, this soft matte lip crayon is great for both ease of use and look. The beautiful hot pink colour looks lovely swiped and patted into the lips or blended softly into the cheeks for a healthy flushed look, perfect for winter. Added to that the roll up stick which means you'll never have any need for a sharpener and you've got yourself the easiest product ever.

Thoughts? Love Me Beauty have been going through some revamps lately so this month's 'box' came in a bag instead - but safe to say the quality of the products inside haven't declined at all. Both the nail polishes are really pretty pastel colours, and practical for me too because I never seem to be able to finish full sizes without them going gloopy towards the end. The curlers are a great edition to my spare makeup bag, which I take with me when I go away, as is the Reviving Mist - always nice to have in stressful situations or to finish off your skin care routine. Finally, the twiststick is the perfect Christmas party colour, and I look forward to wearing this a lot more as we draw closer to the end of the year.
Clarins Christmas Palette - This sleekly packaged eyeshadow palette with 10 super wearable neutral shades from nudes to darks will be top of a lot of christmas lists this year, and for good reason. Just look at it, it's stunning! There are a couple of downsides - a metal box instead of cardboard would have been nice, as would a touch more pigmentation in some of the shades, but as an introductory palette for someone beginning to experiment with eyeshadows I think that this would make a great christmas gift. Now we're in November, it's acceptable to start getting excited, right...?
