November Beauty Favorites

November Favorites

It's that time again! 2015 is flying by and I almost feel like I can't keep up. In my defense, time really does seem to fly when you're having fun! This month has been rather short, but I've managed to try out a bunch of new products; some were a & others I loved.

Mi Vida Loca

Kat Von D Mi Vida Loca Remix Eyeshadow Palette 
This palette has been on my wish-list since the moment I've seen the sneak peak pictures floating around Instagram. I originally decided to be "mature" and leave the palette at the store since I had a TON of makeup (eyeshadows and lipsticks in particular) sitting on my vanity that I haven't even touched. Well, of course Sephora had it's 20% off sale and I picked it up and told my self that since it was cheaper than normal it was okay to add it to my collection and plus I needed to treat myself. Even though, I'm pretty sure that was the worse excuse to tell myself ever, I'm certainly glad that I picked this one up. Kat Von D never fails me with her products and this one is no different. All of the shades are useable and are highly pigmented. I cant even put this down... that's how great it is. For more pictures of this beautiful palette, see my post here.

MAC Shaft of Gold

Mac Magic of the Night - Shaft of Gold
I've talked about these when I first bought them here, but I kept gravitating towards Oh Darlin' and forgetting I even owned Shaft of Gold. I decided to do something different and try Shaft of Gold and my oh my is it the definition of highlight on fleek. Oh Darlin' has been stealing the show and sold out everywhere, but Shaft of Gold is just as good. I have been using Shaft of Gold for my everyday wear to work face and it's so soft and subtle yet, it comes through, every.single.time. It's just gorgeous. So if you managed to miss out on Oh Darlin' give Shaft of Gold a try.

NYX Matte Liquid Liner

NYX Matte Liquid Liner
I am ever so faithful to my NYC liquid liner and I have been since middle school. I decided to try something different and wanted to try something different. The brush is the perfect shape if you like winged liner and the formula... perfect. One swoop across your eye and you get a nicely pigmented matte black line that lasts the entire day. Even though this is pricier than my holy grail liquid liner, and the tube is smaller I still like it a lot, if not more than my NYC liner (I'm a traitor I know).

Body Scrub

Trader Joes Lavender Salt Scrub
Usually I put together my own concoction for a body scrub because I'm ever so picky about what I use on my skin, but I've honestly been really busy, and lazy when I'm not busy , to make my own scrub. So on the same day I picked up the Pumpkin Body Butter that I'll talk about next, I picked this up too. I've been obsessed with anything lavender that I thought to give this a shot; I'm glad I did. It has a mixture of Lavender oil, Almond Oil, Green Tea and Vitamins A, C & E. This doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky or too oily, like some store body scrubs do. It has become a staple and I use it every other day with a wooden scrub brush for the perfect body exfoliation. The only thing that bothers me a bit is that if you don't immediately rinse the tub out, it will be a bit slippery, and I've almost fell on numerous occasions; which looking back on is quite hilarious.

Pumpkin Lotion

Trader Joes Pumpkin Body Butter
I will admit that I am no fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes or Lattes in general, but I love the smell in candles and lotions. I stopped in Trader Joe's for some wine (which is surprisingly pretty good for the price by the way) and happened to see this when I walked down the wrong aisle (oops). The smell of this is so heavenly! It's not to overwhelming, but the amount of pumpkin oil is just right. This body butter combines pumpkin seed oil, coconut oil and Shea butter to create the perfectly creamy moisturizer. For under $5 it contains a lot of product and works fairly well. The only bad thing about it is, I have no fell in love with it and apparently I was lucky to have came across it when I have; the Pumpkin Body Butter is hard to find and of course only offered during the holiday season (bummer).

That's it for this month and let's see what December has in store :)
By the way, I've been looking for new things to try so I would love to know, what products have you fell in love with this month so that I could give them a go. Let me know in the comments below!
