November Favourites

18 comments




I'm still in shock that we're nearly a week into December, where has this year gone?! I'm not complaining though, this year has been a massive roller coaster and I cannot wait for it to end. It's safe to say 2014 was never meant to be my year; breakups, a fallen apart family and an injury that prevents me from playing sport for at least a year, should I go on? Hopefully 2015 will be a better year for me all round. 

Anyway, onto my favourite things from the month of November! First up is the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer*, I got a sample of this at the Southampton Smashbox Bloggers Event, and it's definitely my most loved product this month. It creates such a flawless base to apply makeup, I couldn't ask for more, a full review is coming very soon! The L'oreal Julianne's Red Lipstick has been on my lips so much this month, seeing as I picked this lipstick up thinking it wouldn't suit me and it would probably sit in my makeup collection for a while before being used, I'm actually shocked. This is the perfect bright orange toned red. I cannot get enough of it, and I'll definitely be going back to purchase the rest of the reds collection. 

A Makeup Revolution product was destined to make it's way into my favourites, but my most used was definitely the Essential Shimmers palette, I've been using this everyday. The colours are so versatile and you can create so many looks from the 12 shades, they compliment each other so well and look amazing on the eyes, and that's coming from a matte kind of girl. Lush's Bubblegum Lipscrub has been a lifesaver for me, I recently run out of my Popcorn Lipscrub, and only had a Bubblegum one left which I never used to be a fan of, but this month has changed my mind. I love the taste of this product now, it's been my sweet fix for the month, and I may have eaten a little too much of it, oops! 

 I've finally come out of my Real Techniques comfort zone and tried something different. This Nanshy Blending Brush* has completely changed my view on makeup brushes, and now I can't wait to pick up more from Nanshy. It's such a soft brush, that applies and blends perfectly. I really couldn't ask for more from this brush. It's pretty too; typical blogger. Lastly is a non-beauty favourite for once! My love for Yankee Candles is insane, I'm surprised they haven't featured on my blog before, but as the nights get colder and darker I light my candles a lot more. My favourite scents have been Cranberry Ice and Cherry Vanilla. I'm such a food scent person.
