Blogmas Day 1 - November Favourites

This year I'm taking part in Blogmas which believe me is a real challenge for me but then who doesn't like a challenge? I have a range of exciting and varied posts to share with you this month and I hope you enjoy them all. Today were looking at my November Favourites which somewhat scares me a little as it reminds me that the year really has flown by, one minute it's Summer the next it's Winter although I'm not really complaining as I do love Winter. With that said I think it's time to have a look at what I found to be great during November.

Over the past few months I haven't really bothered to use a primer before doing my entire face as I was not seeing any difference in the outcome of my foundation. obviously it was the product I was using as this does a great job of absorbing any excess moisturiser and providing a smooth base for my foundation to be applied to. It dries super quick so it is ideal for when I'm in a rush to do my makeup and as it says it does hold the foundation in place all day. 

Nude lips are always my thing and I love that they are always fashionable. This particular lip liner reminds me of MAC's Lip Liner in 'Oak' as it works very well with MAC's Lipstick in 'Honeylove'. It is also considerably cheaper than the MAC Lip Liner which obviously makes me very happy as I won't break my bank trying to have the perfect nude lip. NYX in general though do have amazing pigmentation and this product certainly meets those standards.

This was a magazine freebie which after reading this post you will be able to easily tell that I am obsessed with them! This is a lovely little travel sized mascara which does a great job at lengthening the lashes rather than clumping them together with minimal effort required due to the unique wand of the mascara. The colour of the mascara is a nice solid black which enhances the lash and brings them out more. 

This product definitely ties in with the Winter season and the dry skin that it brings on. It pretty much does the job that is required of it. What I like that put this higher than over lotions is the way it glides onto the skin and is not too heavy on it. Once applied the moisture is locked in so you don't need to worry about flaky skin or dry skin. Not to mention the scent of this is enough to make me buy it purely because of that. 

Another freebie that I received last month in a magazine, this lipstick has a slightly sheer finish but provides a beautiful pigmented nude with what I consider to be a peachy tint. The finish is a tad glossy which I highly prefer over other finishes as it does not make my lips feel as if they are extremely dry. I like that it is such a perfect colour for an everyday look and unlike some other lipsticks you can see what the colour is on the outside so you don't have to worry about picking up the wrong lipstick

Like I said this month, I went freebies mad and couldn't get enough of them. I haven't really tried many Ren products but this cream has been a big help with my skin in repairing it from the harsh and cold weather. After cleansing & toning applying this makes all the difference and I find that unlike many other moisturisers this cream doesn't irritate my skin or cause it to go red. 

So what did you think of November's favourites? Do you use any of these products yourself? What were your November favourites? Let me know what you think in the comments as always because I would love to know!
