November Favourites // Skincare + Makeup 

I can't believe it's almost December - although that means Christmas and my absolute favourite time of year! Where has the year gone? 

I've been using some gooooood products this month, both skincare and makeup and I have been long overdue for a favourites post so here goes!

L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil - LOVE! So luxe, emulsifies on contact with water and leaves skin feeling comfortable and nourished.

Shiseido Benefiance Cleansing Emulsion - We've got a repurchase here guys! Haha! This is my second bottle of this cream cleanser. It is effective at comfortably cleansing and getting a massage going. Unfortunately you can't buy this anymore (boo!) as they changed the formula slightly. I haven't tried the new one yet because I'm so attached the old one and stocked up.

Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Serum - This is a repurchase too; absolutely can't live without this serum. Revives tired skin and makes it look like you've just had an hour-long facial. It targets capillaries and blood circulation to even out skin tone, so if you are prone to a bit of rosacea or pigmentation, it is a Godsend. It is hydrating, anti-aging and smells divine (I may be wrong but I get a pink grapefruit type smell from it). I use it after Shiseido's Ultimune serum and before my moisturiser. 

Kerastase Masquintense - Love this treatment for a perk up of my dry ends. I bought this a few months before my wedding to get my tresses in top condition and it's still going strong! Rumour has it that the Duchess of Cambridge uses this mask, and you know how I feel about that! #addtocart

Clinique Sparkle Skin - Body exfol. Effective. Smells good. Great scrub. 'Nuff said.

Tory Burch Eau de Parfum - I'm sure this has made a favourites post before. One of my top three all-time favourite perfumes. It has been on higher rotation this month due to the warmer weather (although maybe I've spoken too soon!). It is light and feminine, and lasts for most of the day. You might need a top up for post-work drinks.

Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Colour Stick in Amethyst - Literally a green-eyed gals best friend. SO EASY to apply and blends out to look like you've spent ten minutes doing a multiple shade eyeshadow look. So creamy and beautiful - recommend blending though if you have slightly oilier eyelids. Blends well with other shadows if you want to get a little fancier, although you could literally just swipe this on, blend a little and you have a gorgeous eye look in 30 seconds. I own the shade Cocoa too but this one goes from day to night a little better.

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 Palette - A recent purchase from my USA trip in July. Pretty much a palette of base and crease/blending colours. Works well with tons of other shades and formulas; have used this with the Laura Mercier stick. Universal, no-fuss palette that you could wear everyday. Took only this palette and a couple of shimmery single shadows on my trip to Broome, Australia last month.

Tony Moly Bbo Bbo Lipbalm in Blueberry - The hot pink lips. Crazy packaging, amazing lip balm. Bbo bbo means 'kiss' in Korean apparently! My lips are so, so soft after using this and the balm tastes amazing. A Sephora impulse purchase while waiting in line. Those aisles get me every time!

Bobbi Brown Blondie Pink Lipstick - I've mentioned this before but this lipstick really is the perfect shade for me. A rosewood type colour that I can throw in my handbag and apply throughout the day. My lips are naturally a little darker and I can't wear really nude shades as they wash me out, so this shade is perfection. The formula is great, hydrating and reasonably long lasting. I feel pretty and confident when I wear it and I will definitely repurchase it when the time comes.

Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Blush (powder version) - The blush I have been reaching for the most this month. A gorgeous, bright pink. Love this for using on my apples, Bobbi style. Really compliments my colouring and gives me a healthy, flushed look. 

Real Techniques Blush Brush - To apply the blush mentioned above. This brush has a great shape and applies product well. I haven't had a shedding problem with any of my Real Techniques brushes and this one is no exception. Check it out if you are in the market for a new blush brush.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer - I don't know why it has taken me so long to get this bronzer! I mentioned to my BFF Victoria that I wanted to try it and she brought it back from her USA trip for me at the start of the month. #loveyougirl I haven't used another bronzer this month and enjoy how this one looks on my skin (usually fair, but tanned for me at the moment due to my Aussie trip last month). The colour does not lean red or orange and blends well for a natural look.

Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfector in Rosewood 06 - My long-time fave lip balm/lip gloss. Not sticky, just an absolutely gorgeous balm that works well on its own or over lipstick. Love it with the Blondie Pink from Bobbi. It's no secret that these Clarins balms are my fave coloured balm, I've mentioned them many times over the years and I own multiples of every shade. Clarins need to give me a two year warning if they ever decide to discontinue them!

So there you have it - A peek at the products I've been reaching for non-stop this month. I'm sure that come Christmas all my faves will have changed to red, glittery nail polishes and shimmery gold shadows. We shall see!

Happy December Eve!
