November Favourites

There are some months that are crazy busy, but this month has gone down as the most amount of time stayed at home. Can you blame me? The days are getting colder and shorter so my reaction is to hibernate. Because of all this time spent at home (majority of it naked faced and in my pj bottoms) I struggled to think of favourites. So I dove into my collection and got to the nitty gritty of things and asked myself what are products that I use everyday don't get much love on the blog. So with my daily essentials heavily in mind here are my monthly favourites.

MAC Eyeshadow in Patina
Patina is a brown colour with a toned down gold sheen. While other sparkly browns can pop a punch Patina is subtle and somewhat sheer. Personally I love Patina, because its easy! I simply apply this to my lids, blend through the crease and my eye makeup is done. This perfect everyday shadow doesn't get much love on the blog and it's a shame because its one of my all time favourites.

Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Golden Pink
When I'm not wearing Patina I am without a doubt wearing a cream eye shadow stick. My favourite over the past few months is Bobbi's Golden Pink. Formula wise this cream eye shadow doesn't crease and applies with ease... literally you just swipe it on and pat it in with you finger.  As for the colour Golden Pink adds a flattering wash of pink (perfect for bringing out blue eyes) and the shimmery finish brings life to the eyes but at the same time doesn't make you look like a disco ball. If your mother, student, pregnant, working women or just looking for something easy I can't recommend this enough.

Antipodes Vanilla Pod Hydrating Day Cream
To be honest I haven't touched this in months. However with the weather getting colder and my skin getting drier it didn't take long before this became one of my favourites again. From the emollient texture to the long list of amazing ingredients this cream is amazing... hell I even like the vanilla citrusy scent too. If your someone who is looking for an extra dose of moisture this winter this cream is one of my all time favourites. I have a whole review here!

Acure Coconut Argan  Oil
I love oils and this drugstore find is quickly becoming one of my all time favourites. Like so many this oil can be used on hair, face, body, cuticles or anywhere you have dry skin. However my unlike others this oil dries almost instantly. That means you can slap this on quickly before getting dressed without the worrying about getting it on your clothes. I also really like the coconut scent it adds a nice tropical touch to my non-tropical everyday life.

 An affordable multi-tasking oil, check! Moisturizer, check! Easy eye products, double check! This month has to be one favourites, favourites! Come to think about it I would slot these products into the 'must have category'. Anyways ladies (and gentleman) I hope you all enjoyed this post as much as I did. I would love to hear what some of your favourites are in the comment section below. 


  1. I'm a big fan of eyeshadow sticks as they're so easy to apply. I love the colour of that Bobbi Brown one- I'm a big fan of anything rose gold-esque!


    1. If you really like rosy gold shades they actually have one called rose gold (lol go figure)!
      I personally don't have it but it looks stunning.
      Glad you like shadow sticks as much as I do.
      Thank you for commenting :)
