Well it’s once again Favourites time! November has flown by, this month had the Sephora VIB Sale, my birthday, Spark Sessions and IMATS. As I managed to do some serious hauling this month, I’m still testing a bunch of the products, so this months favourites are things that I have been using and loving throughout the month. It’s a mix of new products, and a couple of rediscoveries.
Benefit Gimme Brows in Light/Medium – I’ve had this brow gel for ages, but pulled it back out after I ran out of my Anastasia Brow Wiz. I forgot how easy it was to get amazing eye brows with this. A quick swipe of this across my brows and the sparse areas are filled in, and the brows are defined. Not sure I’ll ever go back to a pencil again.
Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Palette in Bare Necessities – Yup, that’s right. Another nude palette is being included in my favourites. I have a nude palette problem. Moving beyond that, this little palette packs a serious punch. The shades are warmer than most of my other nude eyeshadow palettes, and some are quite similar to the Naked 3 palette. There’s 5 shimmery shades and 1 matte, which normally I wouldn’t be a fan of, however these aren’t overly shimmery and are so buttery and easy to blend. Plus the size makes it great for travelling.
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze – This is another rediscovery for me. This was probably the first colour tattoo I ever bought! It was well loved, but got pushed aside for other cream eyeshadows. It’s again in heavy rotation in my makeup bag. For days when I don’t have a lot of time, a swipe of this across my eyelid makes it look like I put in way more of an effort than I actually did. Plus, it stays all day.
Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher in 2 Fair – I’m having a serious love affair with Charlotte Tilbury at the moment (and Beautylish who’s quick delivery helps enable the affair). The Retoucher is basically a hybrid between a concealer and a highlighter. As if YSL Touche Eclat and Nars Creamy Concealer had a beautiful rose gold baby. This is just the perfect concealer for under the eyes. It doesn’t crease or settle in my fine lines, plus it isn’t drying. On days when I’m going for a light base, I’ll use this to both conceal and highlight. Love love love.
Christian Dior Rouge Dior Baume in 788 Fleur Bleue – This is a new release from Christian Dior. It’s a lipstick/balm hybrid, which is super easy to apply, but packs a serious colour punch. I’m easing my way into wearing red lips, and this semi-sheer formula is perfect. It’s low maintenance and super hydrating, it’s definitely pricey but so gorgeous.
Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille – I am absolutely, 100% in love with this fragrance. It is just…I have no words. Picked this up at the Sephora VIB Sale, and have been wearing it non stop. It’s a sophisticated smokey vanilla scent, that I just cannot get enough of. It’s musky, yet feminine. I was pricey, even with the VIB discount, so I’m trying not to over use it, but man. It’s just amazing.
So there you have it, some serious ramblings about my favourite products of November.
Thanks for stopping by!
