Today , I am sharing and reviewing my favorite items for the month of November! I can’t believe it’s gone already. Let’s get into it…
So, first let’s talk about the mascara I have been loving… Too Faced Better Than Sex. This mascara is bomb! It’s easy to apply, and it’s not clumpy. It gives your lashes volume, and length. Love!! Oh, and can we talk about the packaging…its so pretty and girly! I fell in love with the packaging. I had been eyeing this mascara for a while. Watching all the reviews on You Tube… I was finally convinced to purchase this item. When I saw it in Sephora there was a beaming light shinning right above it….ok, not really I’m being real dramatic right now! Seriously, I recommend this mascara. Definitely worth the price! You can also get this item at Ulta. http://www.sephora.com or http://www.ulta.com
Next, let’s talk about Lip gloss!! So, I am a lip gloss freak, and have been since I can remember! I’m in love with nude shades this season. It’s just so easy to throw on , and pair’s well with any make-up look. MAC’s over-spiced lip glass is so beautiful! You can wear it by itself or on top of your favorite lip stick to give it a little sassy shine. Elf’s Extra lip gloss in Brian, which is the pink shade. I love this because it’s really smooth going on , and it has a nice pigment. You can also wear this by itself or with a lipstick. These two are definitely in my bag, and if I am running somewhere really quick, and need a little “I have it together look” I throw one of these on, and go! Purchase at http://www.maccosmetics.com and http://www.eyeslipsface.com
Ok, now Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette…ugh, I cant even talk about it with out sweating…haha! It’s just amazing. The colors are so pigmented and the packaging is life!! The palette comes with 12 colors and a brush. All an A+!! This palette is perfect for the fall and winter, and definitely a go to for a perfect smoky eye look. MAC Burgundy Times Nine palette is another perfect fall palette,and also so convenient to travel with. The colors of course are beautiful, pigmented , and it’s more a neutral palette. The palette comes with 9 shades! This palette is my go to when I am going out of town, I don’t have to take my entire makeup collection or a big bulky palette.

Next up, is the Matte Poreless Fit Me foundation by Maybelline . Love this foundation! It gives nice coverage, it’s very light weight. It doesn’t feel cakey, and last a good 8 hour day. I apply this with my Real Techniques sponge for a smooth finish. If , I don’t want to wear foundation (which is pretty much most of the time:)) I will throw on Dream Pure BB cream also, by Maybelline. It’s just a sheer tint beauty balm. It also has 2% Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment. So, that’s a PLUS for me!! After a few hours I am a little shiny, but that’s ok with me! Both items can be purchased at any drug store, or at Ulta.
Now on to this high lighter madness!! Ok, as I take a deep breath…Mary-Lou Manizer by the Balm! It’s just perfect!!! It’s a beautiful light gold shade. Not a bold gold, a classy gold. So, I heard about this from a friend, and of course You Tube:) I was in Kohl’s one day in line getting ready to check out, and there it was just staring at me! We met, hit it off and I brought it! I use this high lighter for my cheek bones, and also for my inner tear ducts. Perfect High lighter , and won’t break the bank baby! http://www.kohls.com
My favorite body lotion that I couldn’t put down was the Bath and Body Works Pumpkin Latte and Marshmallow Comfort. I have to admit I was hesitant about this lotion…I was like “who want’s to smell like pumpkin and marshmallow” I do!! You literally smell like a cookie with this one. And to seal the deal… I spray on Bath and Body Works Twilight Woods fragrance mist. This has such a warm, and cozy smell. I can’t put my finger on the exact smell, but it’s nice! It’s not a sweet smell…kind of a light vanilla smell with some other stuff…lol! I love to wear this combo to bed! Purchase at http://www.bathandbodyworks.com
Almost done ya’ll!!
To cleanse my face I have been using Dermalogica Clearing Skin Wash. It’s a foaming cleanser that helps clear oils and bacteria on breakout prone skin. It is very easy on the skin. When my skins starts acting like it ain’t got no sense… this cleansing wash calms everything down. It does leave your skin a little dry so, I make sure I use a good moisturizer to place some moisture back into my skin . I use the CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM with Sunscreen SPF 30. I LOOOVE this moisturizer ya’ll! It leaves my skin soft and shinny! Not a chicken grease shinny, but a my face is clean and hydrated shinny! I purchased these items at http://www.ulta.com
Since I have been natural, I have tried a good bit of leave in conditioners…but nothing right now compares to Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner. It smells good, and leaves my hair soft. It doesn’t build up, and works well in conjunction with other moisturizers,and gels I use on my hair. Free of Paraben and Sulfate. Two thumbs up!! Purchased mine at Wal-Mart http://www.walmart.com I believe you can purchase at Sally’s and Target as well.
So, I recently ventured out and tried Vanilla Chai Tea by Bigelow. Yummy!!!! I rotate between tea and coffee. But, I have to say for the month of November I was killin’ this tea. It has a little spice kick to it. I add a tad of Vanilla Almond milk and a little snap of sugar, and I’m good to go!! You can find this tea at any of your groceries stores.
Alright, last but certainly not least…My most favorite candle…Bath and Body Works -Pumpkin Pecan Waffles!! I adore this candle 🙂 When you light this candle, it smells like something is baking at the crib. No lie!! As you can see I burned the FIRE out of this candle!! haha! It’s very strong on the first burn, and it is a sweet smell..I had to get use to it after a few hours. I was cool with the smell after that! Definitely, my go to fall candle. Of course you can purchase at http://www.bathandbodyworks.com
