November Favourites



Is it just me, or do the weekend pass by far too quickly? I don't mind the week going quickly, but I wish the weekends would stay a little longer. I wonder if it's the lack of sunlight, it sets before I've even left from work! This is what it's like, living in Canada in the winter. 

Luckily, my love for makeup keeps me going until the sun comes out again. 

On that note, here are my November Favourites: 

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation
 I always tell myself not to get high-end foundation, since foundation is something that I wear every day and falling in love with an expensive one can get a little pricy. But this one just melts into my skin like I've never seen a foundation do before - even a BB cream! It's smell lovely,  perfect colour for me, gives me the perfect coverage: sheer if I want and thicker if I layer it on, and it's not cakey! The only stickler is the price, but we will see how long one 30ml bottle lasts and I'll weigh that con with all the pros. 

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Sensuelle
A beautiful birthday present given to me by a bestie. The colour suits my skintone perfectly and on top of that it's a perfect deep red for the cooler months! I've heard other blogger and ladies raving about this - if you're a brunette with a light to medium complexion it's a must try. 

Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer
I don't use this everyday, but whenever I feel like the skin under my eyes gets a little dry and the concealer doesn't hold - I slather it on! It really helps the concealer to stay on and so it doesn't dry out and then crease. I haven't seen a hydrating under eye primer like this available anywhere else, and it's a smart idea! As soon as I run out of my samples, I will be purchasing a full size.  

Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser
I received this in a Boscia Black Set, which I will be posting about soon, and I have been using it every morning since! This cleanser is a warming cleanser, which means as soon as I lather it up it warms to my hands and it's warm when I apply it to my face. Perfect for those winter mornings! So far, it's a strong morning cleanser. I have normal/combination skin and it can dry out the dryer parts of my face, but that is rectified when I apply my morning moisturizer. Great for combination/oily skin types! 

Make Up Forever Black Liquid Liner
I decided to purchase this after I wasn't too pleased with my UD liquid liner (the cap broke and it's drying out so quickly!). I am so glad that I did, this is a great every day black liner. I can create thin lines as well as thick Bridget Bardot inspired sultry eyes, and it stays on all night long. ;) 

Sample of Benefit It's Potent!
I received this on a trip to Ulta, and I didn't think to try it until now. I've been using it before I go to bed and it really makes a difference in terms of the hydration of my eye-area. It also helps to brighten up the area a bit and so when I wake up it's not a full-on raccoon sighting upon looking in the mirror. 
I'm not sure if I'll purchase the full size, but I'm loving this little sample so I'm taking it into serious consideration. 

What do you ladies think of these products? Have you tried any of them, love or hate em?

  1. I love the Chanel foundation, although my one was too pale for me which was a shame, but I love the formula!

    1. You should go back and get re-matched! It's a shame not to be able to use such an expensive foundation, I would atleast ask for an exchange. :)
