Favourites: November 2016
So, here we are at the second-to-last, or perhaps last, favourites post of the year! Usually I skip the December favourites for my yearly favourites post. All the products featured this month are really, really good, and ones I've been using for quite a while. It's all really good stuff, and I'm excited to share them with you. I've talked about some before, but since I've been using them for a while, I felt they deserved a follow-up.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Intense ( here )
This time I'll start right off with the perfume I've been loving in November - all of fall, to be honest. It's Guerlain's newest addition to their La Petite Robe Noire line, this one is Intense. It's a beautiful fragrance, in the same family as Lancome's La Vie Est Belle - if you love that one, you'll love this one as well. Intense has notes of blueberry, cotton candy, vanilla, patchouli, cassis, raspberry, musk, sandalwood, rose, bergamot, jasmine and orange blossom.
Guerlain Meteorites Base ( review - here )
Another Guerlain feature this month is my long-time favourite Meteorites Base, which is a primer. It gives a nice glow to the skin, whilst also keeping skin shine-free all day, and makes makeup stay put much, much longer. I've previously written extensively about my love for this primer, but haven't since they updated the bottle. I am pleased to say that the product is the same - it performs the same, feels the same. If you loved the Meteorites primer in the old packaging, you can safely pick up a new one as you'll love this one just the same.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in 'Moonstone' ( here )
Becca's liquid Shimmering Skin Perfectors have been a favourite of mine for absolute years. I have no idea what took me so long to pick up one of their powder versions, but after finally trying Pearl this summer, I quickly realised I absolutely needed (wanted) Moonstone as well. These are absolutely amazing on the skin. Though it is a powder product, they give a sheen very reminiscent of the one you achieve with liquid highlighters, such as Beccas liquid ones. If you are pale you can safely go for Pearl and Moonstone.
Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Day Screen Multi-Protection ( here )
I love this sunscreen! It's light, but not super runny, absorbs quickly, leaves no residue, doesn't clog pores or interfere with my makeup. It's also not irritated my skin, or changed anything about it. If you wear daily SPF like myself, this is definitely one to check out.
Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation ( review - here )
I've talked about this one before, but felt it had earned another mentioned. I went straight from my last bottle to a new one, and have barely used anything else since. My all-time favourite foundation is still the Armani Lasting Silk UV Foundation ( review ) - but for everyday this one by Nars is my go-to. This especially as it covers everything with just a thin layer (whilst still looking super natural), meaning I don't need to go over with concealer, making it not just a great foundation, but a definite time saver. I use the shade 'Light 2 Mont Blanc'.
