November Beauty Faves!

I can’t believe it is almost December! I am so excited for Christmas and I’ve already got all of my shopping done. I even have everything wrapped! What can I say…I love shopping, even if it’s for other people, haha.

So, I’ve rounded up some beauty products that I’ve really been loving lately. Here they are!

MAKEUP

I absolutely love a glittery, sparkly, shimmery lid when it comes to eye makeup, and these Stila Glitter And Glow Liquid Eye Shadows are BOMB. They are chock full of beautiful glittery goodness. I only have one shade, Smoky Storm…but I NEED more. I use this overtop of a powder eye shadow to add a little bit (or a lotta bit) of extra sparkle, OR I dip my eyeliner brush in it and use it underneath my lash line. SO good for holiday parties!

Also for my eyes, I’ve been ditching the black liner and going for a softer option, like this Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Demolition. This is a matte dark brown that I like to smoke out on my upper lash line. It doesn’t look as harsh as black and is really pretty with warmer toned shadows.

HAIR

I have been using a few new hair products this month, first is this Neutrogena Anti Residue Shampoo. I use a lot of hair products in my hair (hairspray, dry shampoo, texture spray, wave spray) and since I don’t wash my hair every day, those products tend to build up. I use this shampoo just about once a week and it gets my hair super squeaky clean. I actually really love the smell too. My hair feels so clean and shiny after I use this.

For dry shampoo, I’ve been using this Organix Coconut Miracle Oil dry shampoo. I love anything coconut scented, and this smells really nice without being super overpowering. It reminds me of the beach and it does a good job of getting rid of oil and adding some volume to my hair. I spray this in, put a shower cap on, take a shower, and then after my shower I brush it out and style it. Works like a charm.

Lastly for hair is this Kristin Ess Dry Finish Working Texture Spray. This is supposed to be a “dupe” for that Oribe Spray everyone loves. I use this to add some texture and some hold to my hair after I curl it. I prefer beachier, looser waves versus curls, and this gives me exactly that look. It doesn’t make my hair crunchy or greasy, just adds a little bit of grip and volume. LOVE IT.

NAILS

I’ve got two nail colors that have been on rotate this month. They are both shiny metallics, which I always gravitate towards. Essie Gel Couture in Daring Damsel is a pewter gold color that is so nice and not streaky. Essie Gel Couture is my favorite for long lasting nail color.

The other color is OPI Cozu-melted in the Sun. This is a sparkly rose gold color that is from OPI’s summer collection. This color is beautiful!

What are your faves this month?

All the Glitter | Riley Rose Haul

I’ve discovered a new store, and it is called RILEY ROSE. It’s like an Ulta, Claire’s, and F21 accessories section all in one. They’ve got the CUTEST things from makeup, to candles to desk supplies to socks. The store itself is all pink and gold. They have a lot of brands I have heard of, but never tried. Of course, I bought some things.

I saw this iridescent phone case and I immediately wanted it. It changes colors with the light and is so pretty. I am attracted to shiny things…what can I say?

I also picked up this Unicorn eye mask with a cooling gel insert. Pop that baby in the fridge, put it around your head and ohhhh it feels so nice. Plus it’s a unicorn, and I’m 12.

Also, this Spectrum brush looked pretty, and I’ve been needing a new angled blush brush.

This NYX Sprinkle Town Cream Glitter palette was a gift from my cuz Katie, she knows I love glitter and this palette has four cream glitters that are beautiful! Can’t wait to use this for the holidays!!

The next thing are these Winky Lux Mini Disco lip glosses.

These are so cute and mini, and they have the cutest little cat packaging. These are chock full of shimmery glitter goodness, and transform to pink on your lips. Each one looks a little bit different because of the glitter colors. My daughters have already claimed the pink and purple, haha. They also stain your lips pink! I LOVE these.

Lastly, THE PALETTE OF LIFE.

This is the BH Cosmetics Desert Oasis Palette. I’ve never tried this brand before, but I was drawn to the colors. Katie and I both got this. The picture doesn’t do it justice- this is the most beautiful palette ever. The right side has face highlight powders, and the left side are eye colors. The colors are oh so soft and buttery and OMG pigmented. I see myself using this ERRDAY.

I also signed up for the rewards program and got a little bag with some freebies in it! Let me know if you would like a review or swatches on anything shown here!
