November Beauty Favorites

Say what? It’s December?! I need to get a move on with everything going on! From planning Kennedy’s birthday party (it’s this Saturday!) to Christmas shopping, it will indeed be a busy month. There have been a lot of new things that I have tried and loved (mostly drugstore items, at that!) and I’m very excited to share them with you!

I picked this up this past month and I have just loved using it! It provides great pigmentation, while also going on smooth. I love the rose color, which I think is a great neutral. I am a sucker for neutral and pink lipsticks. L’Oreal is really hitting it out of the park with their lip products lately!

I am pretty much obsessed with any Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow. I picked these three up, and they seriously are amazing. The pigmentation is beautiful, they go on super creamy, and the best part is they’re only $2.99! I am serious when I say they are just as good as any Mac or Urban Decay shadow I’ve owned (and no insane glitter fallout like UD is notorious for). The only complaint I have with these shadows is that they don’t travel well. I’m not sure if it’s the packaging or how the shadows just crumble easily. But that is forgivable for such a cheap price! Out of these three, I think my favorite one is the ‘Knock on Wood’. I think those colors are so unique and beautiful! If you haven’t picked up some Wet ‘n Wild eyeshadow, get yourself to the nearest drugstore immediately and grab you some. The eight shadow palettes are only $4.99! You can see my review of the Comfort Zone palette here.

If you know me, you know that filling my brows in is an essential step of my makeup routine. I used my Birchbox points to purchase this eyebrow pencil. I was out of my beloved Anastasia Perfect Brow Pencil (I had it for over a year and sharpened it down completely!), and I was afraid nothing would come close. Luckily, this pencil is pretty amazing. I don’t think it’s going to last as long as it is an automatic pencil, but the universal taupe color is really perfect! I was worried about that it would be too light, but it really is a great match. The only thing is YBF products are not widely available. I believe you can get them at Ulta, but I can’t find this product online on their website.

For a dollar, this isn’t much of an investment, but by golly, this is a great eyelash curler. I think my Sephora brand one is the overall better eyelash curler, but it is $16. I think this ELF one is a fantastic competitor.

I have no idea why it’s taken me this long to jump on the orange Cover Girl Lash Blast train. But it’s a fabulous train to ride. I love the wand, and I love the volume and ‘feathery-ness’ that this mascara creates. I prefer a fiber-y dry mascara, and this completely fits the bill. Not my holy grail, but among my favorites.

I received this polish in one of my Julep Maven boxes and all I want to do is wear this polish. The color is so on trend, and it is seriously beautiful on me! I never thought dark colors looked good on me, but this polish proved me wrong. Not to mention, Julep is a fabulous brand with superior quality polishes.

What beauty products have you been using and loving lately? Leave a comment so I can add it to my wish list!


  1. That is my absolute favorite mascara! I’ll have to try some of your other faves!

  2. Oooh! I’m going to try out that lipstick! Looks like such a pretty color :-D Thanks for tips, as always!!

  3. We’ve finally reached the point where I have tried none of your monthly favorites. Not a one! I actually do need a new eyelash curler though, and if you like the elf, I’ll go grab it! For $1, it’s a steal!

  4. I read somewhere recently that department stores make up brands put more money into their packaging than the actual product which is why drug store eye shadows are worth trying out. The ingredients aren’t going to vary much; we’re just paying for that luxurious feel you get well pulling out a well packaged product. Now… to heed my own advice…

  5. Oh I’m loving that color of Julep polish. I may have to purchase it. I have a similar color on my nails now, and I think it’s the perfect fall/winter color.

  6. I just bought a wet n wild palette but I’m going to have to look for those! The shadows are really great.

  7. omg i felt like that eyelash curler was going to rip my eyelashes out of my face!! lol. i hated it!! such a rare moment for us to disagree on makeup! :)

  8. Ahh! I JUST opened my lash blast mascara a few days ago :)

  9. I have that ELF eye lash curler :) I also need to try L’Oreal products!! I need to make a sugar scrub first though for my lips becuase when I use lipstick… *embarrassed* I get white crap on the sides of my mouth! :(

  10. I need to get the elf lash curler! That is a great julep color.
