November Favourites





November is over, 2015 is almost over and I'm almost 26. Scary. On a completely different note I have some of my November favourites for you to look over while I cry into my pillows over my impending old age. First up is Urban Decay's Vice release from last year, the Vice 3. I reach for this palette almost daily, the neutral shades are perfect and the more out there shades complement the palette so well. The mirror is also a decent size so I can do my make up in bed if it's too cold to get up in the morning. 

I haven't tried much from The Balm but I use what I have tried all the time, especially Bahama Mama which I've just hit pan on. I use this to add some colour to my cheeks and contouring when I can be bothered as it's so matte. The Balm Desert is the product I want to try next which is bronzer/blush. To keep my make up from slipping I use Smashbox Photo Finish primer. I had gone through a number of samples before I bought the full size version and I'm almost out of that now too. It is such a fab primer and worth the price tag! 

The lipstick that hasn't left my side this month is Sin by Mac Cosmetics. It's dark, sultry and as matte as can be. I wouldn't be without it. Applied alongside Nightmoth lip liner, it's my ultimate Autumn lip shade. Lastly is Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez. I have worn a mixture of scents the majority of my life, namely Marc Jacobs, Christian Dior and Thierry Mugler but after receiving Narciso in a gift set I fell in love. I've finally found my signature scent and I genuinely don't think I'll wear another fragrance again. Narciso has won me over big time. 

What have been your favourites this month?

  2. Smashbox primer is AMAZING! I'm also so glad to see that your bits and bobs have got a little battered through use - so many bloggers try and keep theirs looking pristine but the truth is of course they're going to get worn! Great post

  5. I got the Smashbox primer in a mini trio set for Christmas last year and I instantly fell in love with it, but now I've run out! *screams*
    I need to get my hands on a full size one asap. Sin looks like a gorgeous lipstick, I really need to buy some of the darker MAC shades. x

    1. It's pricey but so worth it. The L'oreal Infallible is a pretty good dupe for it though xx

  6. Oh no, don't say 26 is old :D I've been telling myself "I'm still young" haha.
    I was really thinking about purchasing the Smashbox primer the other day. Next time I see it on a shelve I might just do that, you make it sound so great!
    I hope you've had a fab weekend :)

  7. Ooo, I'm intrigued by that perfume! I do love a good, classic scent! This month I've been reaching for my MAC Moisture foundation which I went off when I lived in Finland - mostly because the shade was way too dark for me! I've also dragged out my Benefit Watts Up highlighter over the last few days and I've been enjoying using that again. xxx
