This month I decided to go aheaxd and film a video on my monthly favorites! But, I know not everyone enjoys watching videos so I figured I would write up a quick blog post to accompany the video. I didn't take photos of the products, which I realize now I should have done. But I did show each item in the video, so hopefully that's ok! So before I get started, here's the video!!
My first favorite is the Revlon Colorstay whipped creme foundation in 220 Nude. I really enjoy this foundation. It glides on smoothly, and has a beautiful finish. it is medium to full coverage, and very pretty on the skin. I have never used the original Revlon colorstay so I can't say how it compares to that one, but I really love this version and highly recommend it!
Next up are the sephora brand prisma chrome eyeshadows in moon bean and flash dance. I really like these eyeshadows! They come in a cute little square compact packaging, and the product itself is a really cool raised design. Moon beam is a super pretty light shade that I find is perfect for a brow bone highlight, or all over the lid. Flash dance is a beautiful deep orange color that I normally wouldn't have purchased but that I am loving as an outer corner color. These eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented and last all day with the proper eyeshadow base!
Next is the Elf little black beauty book, and I have the everyday festive eye edition. It's a beautiful compact little palette that fits right in my bag easily. It's about the size of my hand. It comes with a large variety of neutral as well as colorful eyeshadows. It's got a ton of variety, and most of the shades have good pigmentation. It's a very versatile little palette, and it only costs 5 dollars! This would make a great holiday gift.
Next is the L'oreal Voluminous million lashes mascara. I believe the shade I have is carbon black, but I'm not one hundred percent sure because I don't see the color name anywhere on the actual tube. Regardless, this mascara is amazing. It separates and lengthens my lashes without clumping. It does not flake, or transfer and it lasts all day. I really enjoy this mascara, and I highly recommend it!
I have a couple of lip products to share with you today as well. First is the Elf jumbo lip gloss stick in the color in the nude. It's a beautiful creamy nude color. It's perfect for my skin tone in my opinion. And even though it's technically a gloss, I don't find this one to be super glossy, so I like to wear it with a gloss on top, and the one that I especially like with this particular shade is the urban decay lip junkie lip gloss in Midnight cowboy. This is a beautiful nude gloss with lots of shimmer in it. It's beautiful, and it has a minty smell and a cooling sensation on the lips. LOVE! Another of my favorite lip products for the month of november is the Elf mineral lipstick in nicely nude. I really like all of the mineral lipsticks from this brand that I have tried, but nicely nude is my favorite of them all so far. Even though it's called nicely nude, it's not a nude color in my opinion. It's more of a true pink. It looks great on my skin tone, lasts for quite a while and have a beatiful sheen to it! you should check it out!
Next up is a couple of blushes. I have the Elf baked blushes in peachy cheeky and passion pink. Like their names suggest passion pink is a pink shade and peachy cheeky is a peachy-pink blush. Both are beautiful on the skin and they last quite a while. I wouldn't say all day, but I have gotten about 8 hours of wear out of each of them. And at 3 dollars each they are a steal!
The l'oreal dream lumi concealer/corrector in fair. I use this concealer to brighten my under eye area, and it's beautiful. It makes me instantly look more alive and awake, and it lasts and does not crease or move. I like it a lot!
Next up I have just a couple of fragrances. First is the bodycology body mist in peppermint twist. This little body mist I picked up in the stocking stuffer section of walmart and it just screams holiday to me. It's a beautiful peppermint scent. The scent doesn't last long, but since it's a cute little purse size, I can take it with me and re-apply whenever I want. The other schent I have been loving this month is the taylor swift wonderstruck perfume. I am horrible at describing scents, but it is described on the website as an awe-inspiring blend, filled with freesia, raspberry, vanilla, honeysuckle, and sandalwood. It smells so good. It's a great everyday fragrance in my opinion And the bottle is super cute!
My last favorite is a high-end product that I splurged on earlier in the month and it's the Mac paint pot in painterly. It's a skin toned cream product that I like to use as an eyeshadow base. It's great because it disguises the veins in my eyelids and makes for a great neutral base for any eyeshadow look. If I knew of a good drugstore dupe for this product I would have purchased it, but I have been looking for a product like this for ages, and I have simply not found a less expensive alternative. So I broke down and paid the 18 dollars to have this in my makeup collection, and while I cringe that I paid that much, I really am glad that I purchased this product. I really love it, and I find myself reaching for it everyday!
So that's it for my favorites this month. There were quite a few of them! I hope you enjoyed this blog post!
