Blogmas Day Four | November Favourites



I can't quite believe that it is day four of Blogmas already and also that I am writing yet another monthly favourites post, it seams only days ago that I was deciding what should go in my October Monthly Favourites. Yet here I am again to let you know what my favourite products have been, this time for the month of November. 




It seems almost as though I have changed my whole daily routine and I suppose the products featured in the post do create a full face of make up near enough. I have decided to hold back a little of late, when it comes to applying a full face of makeup and I think that this is for a number of reasons. My face, whether this is due to stress, the weather or my diet, has been breaking out a little more than usual and so I thought that perhaps using more products like the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser that gives coverage and an even tone to my skin, will be a little kinder and a little lighter than a full foundation. I also feel that because it party season I would give my skin a bit of a rest from a full face of make up during the day, so that I can wear a heavier look when I go out for Christmas drinks/ dinner/ and parties. I guess I also just wanted to try out a few new products that I have been buying of late and they seem to work together quite well. 

The Benefit Cosmetics Intense Serum for example has done wonders for my skin over the past few weeks as even though I tend to get a slightly oily T-Zone, the cold weather really does dry out my skin and so I have to ensure that it is well hydrated. This serum soaks in so fast and leaves my skin feeling instantly hydrated but not at all sticky or shiny. Once this has been applied to my skin the Seventeen highlighting primer is amazing to use! It provides such a warm glow to my skin, and even though I was slightly worried at first that it might be too shimmery it actually creates a really natural glow. This teamed up with the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser provides me with a soft natural glow, yet my skin feels as though it is still able to breath, like I have almost no product on it. On days when I have felt as though I have needed a little extra boost in terms of coverage I have been using the Mac Pro Long-Wear Concealer which applies and blends like a dream.

I have fallen back in love with Mac's Brave lipstick which is a perfect everyday shade. I have been wearing it in the office to complete my natural barely there make up look. It is a matte finish so I tend to apply it with a little bit of lip balm but it is really long wearing and pigmented. My final favourite for the month of November has been the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hair Spray. I have already written a full review of this product but I have been using it most days and it has really transformed my everyday styling giving my roots a huge amount of volume.



What have you been loving for the past four weeks?
