November Favorites

Hey guys! Can you believe it’s December already!?? Where has the time gone? I swear this year has gone by in the blink of an eye, but it’s been a great year for me & my family. I know that I’ve skipped a few months but I’ve rounded up my November favorites. Let’s see which products made the list!

First up is the Too Faced Mascara Melt Off. I received it in my first Glossy Box and completely forgot about it. The first time I used it I was wearing The Waterproof version of Better Than Sex by Too Faced which can be kind of hard to remove, depending on what you use. But, it came right off with the Melt Off remover. I didn’t have to wipe my eyes continuously or wash my face more than once.

The next thing that easily secured a spot on my favorites list is the Neutrogena Shine Control Primer. I’m always on the lookout for anything that will help control and minimize oil & shine. I came across this primer while I was doing a little online shopping and figured I’d give it a try. Instant favorite!! I don’t use it as an all over primer, just in the spots that get oily. It has rice protein complex which really works to absorb oil and it’s long-lasting. I use it even when I’m not wearing makeup.Neutrogena Shine Control, Neutrogena, Primer, Neutrogena Cosmetics

I’ve also been using the Defense Refresh Setting Mist w/SPF 50 from Supergoop. It’s a 3 in 1 mist with a matte finish, it sets your makeup, controls oil & it has UV protection.  I only use it when I’m wearing makeup but combined with the primer from Neutrogena, oil & shine have absolutely no chance! I love the way it smells too, it contains mint & rosemary so there’s a light, refreshing scent. This was in my August allure Beauty Box.Supergoop, Setting Mist, Mattifying Setting Mist

Another little jewel that I got from GlossyBox is MTJ Cosmetics High Definition Mascara. I had been using this on and off since I got it back in September but just recently started using it regularly. It really lengthens and darkens my lashes. I don’t know about you guys, but I love my lashes to be the blackest of black lol! This mascara does it.  It doesn’t clump and I don’t even have to use the eyelash curler, it’s that good. It lengthens, curls and blackens those lashes honey…love it!!MTJ High Definition Mascara, MTJ, High Definition Mascara

Since all the light brown highlight has grown out of my hair, I stopped using dark brown brow color and started using black again. I bought several different brow products because a girls gotta have options, but the first one I got and the only one I’ve been using is Colour Pop’s “Jet Set Black” Creme Gel Brow Color. I love it because it’s easy to work with, it has a really smooth application and it’s long-lasting. Besides that, it’s only $6.  You seriously can’t go wrong with Colour Pop.

One of the brands that I’m loving right now is IT Cosmetics. I recently purchased quite a few of their products from Ulta. I love everything that I bought but what I love the most is the Color Correcting Full Coverage + Anti-Aging Serum CC Cream. I honestly don’t know what made me pick it up, I think I was just on a roll grabbing IT products lol! I’m glad I grabbed it though. At first, I felt like it was too heavy but after using it a few times I was able to work with it. It looks very natural and blends out seamlessly. IT Cosmetics, CC Cream, Anti-Aging Serum

Moving closer to the top of my list we have a blush from Wet n Wild. I was pleasantly surprised with their Color Icon Blush. It was one of those things I bought “just because”. I was in Five Below and couldn’t resist going over to check out the budget friendly cosmetics. I picked up the color Apri-cot in the Middle. It’s so pigmented, I wasn’t expecting that at all! It’s light weight and has the perfect amount of sheen. I absolutely love the color! It’s an everyday wear for me.  If you didn’t know…Wet n Wild is doing their thing!Wet n Wild, Wet n Wild Blush, Coloricon Blush, Apri-cot in the middle, Cruelty-free Blush

Of course I had to save the best for last! Let me just tell you about these Tarteist PRO cruelty-free Lashes…hands down the BEST lashes! First off, their cruelty-free and you’ve gotta love that. Secondly, they’re GORGEOUS!! Now, I’m not a huge lash person so I really don’t like to spend a lot of money on them or even spend too much time looking at any but for some reason these caught my eye the minute they came out. The first pair I bought were the more natural looking ones in the style “Little Black Dress”. I usually struggle to put lashes on(please don’t judge me), but these went on effortlessly and they looked amazing. I swear they are everything I’ve ever wanted in false lashes. Which is precisely why I ordered a second pair, this time I got them in the style “Flirt”. These are more for lengthening. I just love them!  Seriously the best final touch to any look and they’re perfectly priced at just $12!!

That’s everything I wanted to share from November. I hoped you enjoyed. Tell me what your favorites were from last month, I’d love to know. Anything from my list?
