November Favorites


I swear I don't even remember November starting and now Thanksgiving is over and Christmas is fast approaching. 2014 is going to be over in a snap and I have to say I'm going to miss it. With all the beauty sales I have a few things I've loved this November, plus the first book I've finished in ages.

Let's start with the novel. Over Thanksgiving break I read We were Liars by E. Lockhart in under a day. I devoured this book. I won't say that it's the greatest book ever, but the plot was easy to follow and the twist at the end was brilliantly horrific. I wish there was a little less setting up and a little more mystery revealing, or just more book in general. It seemed rushed when the ball finally dropped. The writing style was spot on and worth the read.

For makeup the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray is really worth the hype. Now that I've figured out how to get it to mist consistently it's been seriously love. It has a scent but it's so faint I barely notice it and will never be able to describe it. I really do believe it helps keep my makeup looking fresh all day.

I've talked about the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask to death by now, but it's that amazing. Winter dry skin cannot compete with the moisture and wonderfulness of this stuff. You need to try it. I know there's a lot of you guys who keep saying that you need to, but the time is now. Scoop up a Christmas deal and get this stuff on your face!

The Bumble and Bumble Bb Thickening Hairspray is now a staple in my morning routine. If I go without it my hair is frizzier and flatter than ever before. It doesn't transform my stick straight hair into a wavy wonderland, but it does add the volume I've been searching for all these years. Pure gold.

Another product I'm sure you're familiar with by now is the Clinique Chubby Stick in "Grandest Grape." I don't see this love affair ending any time soon. The same goes with Revlon's "Wine Not" Blush. I realize now that the blush and lip balm are very similar in shade which is probably why I'm downright obsessed with both of them. A mauve pink that's just dark enough. Swoon.

What products have you been loving this month?

  2. What is even happening, how is it practically 2015?! On a sidenote, the Origins mask really didn't work for me - it felt all tacky after 5 minutes and broke me out in an icky rash :(

  3. I included the Origins mask in my November favorites too! And I just picked up a sample (it was a 100-point perk at Sephora) of the Bumble and Bumble thickening hairspray based on your recommendation - I can't wait to try it out!

  4. I really loved We Were Liars as well! I never really saw the twist coming, but looking back on the story before you find out there are definitely a lot of "off" things. It's definitely something that would be amazing to reread!
