November Favourites | Blogmas 2015. [Day 1] ❄️

01 - thumbnial, november favourites, blogmas 2015, day one; bblogger, beauty, makeup, christmas

Hello everyone!

So this is a very special post, as you can see – yes, I am doing (or attempting to do) BLOGMAS!! (okay, now that’s festive) Basically, what that means is that there will be a new post over here, on my blog every day (WHAT?!) until December 25th. (Christmas) It will be challenging, it will be nearly impossible, but I will (try to) purservier.

Anyways, the first post of ‘Blogmas’ will be none the less than my November Favourites! I just love both reading and writing these kinds of posts,so this will just be a hoot and a half. 😀

Also, let’s just say that this is a ‘return of the old favourites’, as I’ve been going back to some of my previous favourite products, but still. I hope you enjoy!

Okay, let’s get started!


1) Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick (111 – ‘Kiss Of Life’)

I’ve raved about this particular product WAY too much… But I can’t help it! I haven’t used it through the month of October and I felt empty.

I guess my oppinions on red lipsticks constantly change, but currently, this is the perfect shade of red. 🙂

2) NYX Above And Beoyond Full Coverage Concealer (02 – Clair)

Despite the fact that I’ve always said I didn’t like this, it turnes out it’s actually quite good, at least as a base (to even out your skin), before applying foundation. I’ve mostly been using it under the eyes and on spots/where I’d  get a bit of redness.

I guess opinions can change, haha! 😀

(however, I wouldn’t say it’s full coverage… but works great as a base!)

3) Essence Super Fine Liquid Liner

I’ve gotten this little product for my birthday from my friends and it’s actually really good. I love felt tip liners, but they can be a bit of a pain if the tip dries out. However, this is a pretty standard formula and I’ve actually enjoyed using this product in the past month. It does tend to smudge a bit, but I’ve always loved setting my eyeliner with black eyeshadow. (UD – Crave)

4) Naked Basics Palette

You could say that this is pretty obvious and yes, I’ve talked about this before, but I actually stopped using it for a while and have only recently rediscovered it. (I have these periods when it comes to palettes)

This is one of my favourite palettes ever – it’s incredibly pigmented and the shades are so beautiful and neutral, which is exactly what I most often use.

I don’t want to keep repeating myself, so you could click here to check out my review of this product. 🙂

5) Memory Booklet

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the best and definitely the most thoughtful birthday gift I’ve ever recieved.

This is a little memory booklet that a few of my friends made for me and it is flawless – they took our photos and made them look like polaroids, then they punched two holes in the deck and tied the whole thing together with a ribbon (that looks like rope, which I love!)

On the back of each photo, they wrote something, usually some inside jokes or just something increidlby beautiful that made me really grateful for the (real) friends I have. 😊

    I love the memory book idea!!
    3 of my favorite things would have to be my sharpie pens (typical college student), my Biore charcoal facial cleanser, and yoga pants I got for Christmas last year!

    I am doing Blogmas on my channel as well but I start on Dec. 1, tomorrow. I’ll leave you a link just in case you want to take a look!

      So glad you like it! ^^
      I feel ya, with the sharpies, though, highliters should’ve been my November favourites as I had the first round of exams and it was a hoot ‘n’ a half….
      I’ve actually never heard of that facial cleanser, I might’ve been living under a rock… but ‘Charcoal cleanser’ sounds so cool, haha!

      Oh, YAY, that’s so exciting!! 😀 I’m headed over there now to check it out!
      (It was supposed to be Dec. 1st when this went up, but, ya know, the different timezone struggle…)

      Have a lovely day! 😊

  3. The memory book is wayyyyy too cute! Really looking forward to your Blogmas posts and what spark of creativity you will be bringing to the table. I’m doing a few different holiday posts on my blog for this month; touching base on a range of different elements!
