NOVEMBER FAVOURITES

So November is over and we are well into December, the last month of the year! November for me has been pretty boring, yet stressful and anxious. Throughout the month of November, I’ve really enjoyed using my fair share of products, ranging from makeup, to skincare to scents.

Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil
I am currently trying to sort of my nail care routine and to try and combat this, I tried out a new cuticle oil, which I happen to love! This Essie cuticle oil has the nicest scent and smells like a Petit Filous yoghurt. It actually works and softens my cuticles to allow me to push them back and have a more professional looking manicure/pedicure.

Jo Malone Wood, Sage & Sea Salt Cologne
I’m a sucker for anything Jo Malone. Over the year, I’ve heard a lot about this particular scent as it’s been loved and raved about by so many bloggers. I personally was always put off by it as I thought it would literally smell of the salt and a nicer version of a dirty sea (if that’s possible) however I gave this little bottle a spritz and it may just be my new favourite! The scent isn’t too overwhelming yet it still lingers.

Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer
If you read my Nars & Maybelline concealer comparison, you’ll know that I took quite a like to this Nars concealer. It’s an absolutely amazing concealer; it has a nice consistency as well as a great amount of pigmentation, meaning that I don’t need to use too much product. The shade Amande is perfect for concealing my under eye circles as well as my multitude of blemishes.

Super Facialist Micellar Water
I’ve been really trying to up my skincare game lately and I go through Micellar waters like they’re going out of fashion. My all time favourite along with Bioderma is the Nivea 3-in-1 Cleansing Water. This specific Micellar water is so good at removing the bulk of my makeup because the last thing I want is to be sitting there with a cotton pad trying to remove my five layers of mascara.

MAC Brown Script Eyeshadow
There has been one eye makeup look I’ve been gravitating towards recently which has been winged eyeliner with a matte brown in the crease. A lot of American/Canadian beauty gurus use a brick red eyeshadow in the crease as a transition colour and since their makeup always looks beautiful, I thought I’d give it a go. Brown Script has been a stunning colour to use with Brun to add more definition in the crease.

Kevyn Aucoin Single Eyeshadow
When creating the eye look as aforementioned, I like to use a creamy white eyeshadow as a base for any other eyeshadow. I love everything about this eyeshadow from the functional packaging, to the velvet pouch! This eyeshadow from Kevyn Aucoin is a beautiful creamy white eyeshadow with a lovely smooth consistency.

MAC Combination | Chestnut Lip liner & Plumful Lipstick
I have been obsessed with a particular MAC lippie combination! MAC Chestnut lip liner with Plumful lipstick blended together. This combination creates a beautiful deep, pinky nude colour. I’ve worn these two products on various occasions from nights out to throughout the day. It really makes a change from me wearing a deep bold purple.
