November 2017 Favorites

I honestly can not believe that I am already talking about my November favorites. It still amazes me how fast 2017 has flown by. Where did the time go? Life recently has been really crazy for me (more about that in another post) so it’s not surprising this month is almost over. Despite the fact that life has been crazy, I was able to try out several new products. So, let’s jump into what I have been loving recently.

Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Palette

I used this for the first time over the Thanksgiving break and I was extremely impressed with how blendable the shades are.  I have used some contouring products in the past and I looked like a muddy hot mess even after blending it out. The palette contains three contouring shades and highlighting shades. I do feel that even those with lighter skin will be able to use the contouring shades. I also love that this palette is refillable!

It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara

I recently stopped getting eye lash extensions and was on the hunt to try out a new mascara. I had seen previous reviews on this one and thought I’d give it a try. This mascara took my lashes from nothing to high volume with just one coat (I apply at least two coats for extra volume). Seeing that I apply more than one coat, I had no issues with my lashes becoming clumpy. This mascara is also good for your lashes because it contains strengthening biotin’s and proteins.

Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Cream

Guys I am not going to lie with everything that has been going on in my life over the past month, my skin became extremely stressed out. I look like I had aged a little because of lack of sleep,etc. This product right here took my skin back to looking refreshed and soft. This is an anti-aging moisturizer that helps with dryness, fine lines/wrinkles and dullness/uneven skin texture. I have noticed that the lines around my eyes have slightly decreased, as well as my smile lines over the last few weeks. I can not say enough good things about this product!

Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum

With all the sleepless nights I had over the last month this product was my saving grace when it came to making my eyes look less fatigued. I would put this serum on and my eyes instantly looked brighter and less puffy. It also helped with putting moisture back into my under eye area. Seriously one of the better eye creams I have used.

Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette

This is probably my favorite palette from Tarte currently. The shadows are full of warmth and just perfect for creating a neutral eye look. I love that it includes some matte shades and shimmer. The shadows are very pigmented, buttery and blend out beautifully. If you’re looking for a palette to splurge on this one is it!

Pelle Beauty Neroli + Rose Cleansing Foam

I’m a huge lover of Pelle Beauty products and this product did not disappoint. I love that Marnie uses natural ingredients in her products. This cleanser is very gentle on the skin as well as hydrating. I found that it effectively removed my makeup without any issues. It also smells really nice and not overly floral like.

Pelle Beauty Neroli + Rose Beauty Mist

This product can be used to set makeup and to hydrate your skin. I love products that can be used for more than one purpose. I use this product primarily to hydrate my skin when it needs a little pick me up. It does not leave my skin feeling sticky which is a major plus!

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Can I just say this stuff is serious lip crack and it smells amazing! I love using this mask when my lips are extremely chapped and even when they aren’t. Let’s just say that I can’t stand the thought of having chapped lips, so anything I can do to prevent that, I am all for it. This mask has moisture wrap technology that boosts hyaluronic acid and mineral that form a protective film over your lips that helps lock in moisture.

ColourPop Yes, Please Palette

This palette is perfect for Fall!!! It has oranges, reds, yellows and any shade you can think of to create that Fall look. This is the first time I’ve used any of ColourPop’s pressed shadows and these are really great shadows! I found that they were very blendable and highly pigmented. The best thing about this palette is that it’s only $16 which is a steal.

Have your tried any of these products out? If not which products would you like to try out?

    Ohh, I love your round-up! I recently got a sample size of the IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara as a birthday gift from ULTA, and I quite agree that the hype’s real! And among the things you mentioned, I wanted to try the Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask, ColourPop YES, PLEASE Palette, and tarte Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette (though I already own the ABH Modern Renaissance Palette that I don’t get much use of!)

    I tried a Kiehl’s Cream once and wasn’t there to excited about it. What do you think is the go to cream for eyes to mask lack of sleep. I am dealing with some sleep issues and it’s amazing what it does to your skin! Who knew right?!?! Any help would be appreciated.

    I need both of those Kiehl’s products desperately. My skin has been terrible lately from the dry weather and the gym. Plus, I haven’t been sleeping very much either. I also need a new mascara, so that one sounds awesome.
    I can’t believe it’s almost December! Yikes!

  27. All of these sound like amazing products but I am especially excited about the Kiehl’s products. Those both sound like things I need because lately, I feel like my skin is tired and dull looking, too. So these are on my must buy list now!!
