Blogmas Day 1: November Favourites!

My favourite month is finally here, welcome to Blogmas 2017! 

Let's start the month off right, with my November favourites and this month I've started using some of my old faves again, which I have fallen back in love with!! There are also some newbies, so let's just jump right in ...

Bath & Body Works Black Teakwood Candle-

I'm going to scrap this whole 'saving the best until last' because I'm just to exited not to talk about this straight away. This is the Bath and Body Works Black Teakwood Candle, which I managed to pick up on eBay as B&BW doesn't ship to the UK. I was unsure about which candle I wanted to get, but as I want to use the pot afterwards for a makeup brush holder, so I have to say the pot sold it for me!

I wasn't sure what Black Teakwood actually smelt like, but i was pleasantly surprised ... it almost smells like a really nice aftershave. 

Fragrance notes: Rich Mahogany, Black Teakwood, Dark Oak and Frosted Lavender.  

The scents in this candle make it a really warm, cozy and relaxing candle ... which is perfect for this time of the year! Other than the pot and the scent, I also love the fact that it has 3-wicks so that it burns evenly!

Rimmel Breathable Foundation-

You may have seen my review on the Rimmel Breathable Collection, if  not you can >> click here  <<. 

I have been mixing this foundation with the Max Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation and I've been loving mixing them together. Over the past month I have been using this foundation a lot and it seems to have helped my skin clear up. It also has made my makeup look and feel nicer on, as well as not being cakey. 

W7 In The Buff Eye Shadow Palette-

This palette has lots of Neutral shades, with both shimmery and matte shades, and this has been my go-to throughout November. I've been loving creating looks with this palette and you can create both daytime and evening looks with it. Also it's actually quite cheap, but with the quality and pigment in the shadows you'd never know!!!

Sally Hansen Lip Plumper -

Although this lip plump isn't very good in the sense that it doesn't plump the lips much, if at all. But the lip gloss itself is really pigmented and it smells like Hot Cross Buns ... how festive haha! I never really love glosses, but I think it's nice for this time of the year ... especially as my lips get quite dry in the A/W. 

Smashbox Under Eye Primer-

The Smashbox Under Eye Primer is an oldie but goldie, which I have used for years but I've recently started using it again. My under eyes have been getting a little dry recently and this primer helps to hydrate them, as well as helping makeup to apply better and stay on longer. I deffo recommend this for you all to try!!

Rimmel Soft Colour Blush in 010 Santa Rose- 

You may have seen me mention this blush before in a post, as I was loving it throughout the Summer, but I've also been loving it this month. It's a really nice colour to give a flush to the cheeks, without too much and it looks good with a bronze-y makeup look as well.

No7 Bronzing Highlighter-

Last, but not least, is the No7 Bronzing Highligher. Throughout the A/W when my tan's faded and I feel pale, I  like to bronze up my face and then use a bronzing highlighter to look even more tan ... cos let's be honest, you can never be too bronzed!!
