November Beauty Faves

It’s the end of November, and I have some new beauty faves to share with you all! I haven’t been wearing a full face of makeup everyday, but I do like to use a couple of things so I can look put together.

Here they are!

For nails, I’ve been using Essie Sheer Fantasy on repeat! I did a whole post on this a few weeks ago, and I love that it is so natural but chic looking! It is the perfect sheer neutral!

Next up is the NARS Kalahari Eyeshadow Duo. This comes with two colors, a pewter gold shimmer, and then a sort of chocolate brown color with a hint of sheen.

This is the perfect natural, every day duo. These colors are gorgeous and pigmented, and apply so smoothly. Here’s a swatch:

For lips, I’ve been doing a sort of tinted lip balm. This one by Clinique in Whole Lotta Honey is the best my-lips-but-better rosy brown color! It is shiny and moisturizing and just feels so good. Love the twist up crayon shape, too. Here’s a swatch:

This Clean & Clear Exfoliating Scrub is really nice. It is a gel that has little beads and scrubbers that aren’t too harsh. It leaves a cooling tingle on my skin and makes my face feel really clean. I like to use this in the shower, and you only need a teeny bit.

Lastly for hair, is this Verb Ghost Hair Oil. Hair oils are a must for me and my dry ends. This oil really nourishes my hair and makes it feel so soft. I apply two pumps to it from my ears down and comb it through. It really smooths and adds shine. It also has a really light scent and doesn’t weigh down my hair. Love it!

That’s it for the faves!

Pretty Holiday Nails

It is officially the holiday season, and I am all about the holiday sparkly nails. I have picked out a silver, gold, red, and of course, a winter white!

Here they are!

Look at this sparkly red! This is new from Essie Winter 2020. The color is In A Gingersnap, and it is the most metallic cherry red with gold pearl . It is stunning!

I LOVE silver nails, and this color is the sparkliest silver I own. The color is Julep Missy and I have purchased this so many times! So pretty for the holidays.

If we have silver we have to have a gold! This is is a metallic gold, Essie’s Daring Damsel. This is such a pretty color while still being pretty neutral. It will go with anything!

Lastly, a white, but not any white! This color is Essie Sweet Soufflé, a creamy white with a gold-orange shift. This color is so fun snd so pretty and chic for the holidays!

I hope you liked my holiday nail picks! What colors do you like to wear on your nails for the holidays?

The Sheer Pink Nail

Pink is my favorite color to wear on my nails, so I had really been wanting to try the pink sheer nails that I’ve been seeing online lately. Sheer nails are by no means something new, but if done right, they can be really chic and pretty!

They’re kind of like the no-makeup-makeup look, but for your nails! No-polish-polish?

This is theeee best color for it.

Essie Gel Couture in Sheer Fantasy. A very light cream baby pink.

I used three coats of this, and I think it is so gorgeous. You get the look of a naked nail, but just a better version of it.

The best part is, if it chips, you can hardly notice! I’ve had this manicure on for 5 days now, and not a single chip. This Essie Gel Couture polish is so good.

It kind of reminds me of a French manicure, which I think is very on trend at the moment!

Do you like sheer nails?

Sally Hansen Pacific Blue | Oldie But Goodie

Hello! Do you have nail colors in your collection that you just can’t get rid of no matter how old they are? I have quite a few…but my oldest one is the original (they have since reformulated it) Sally Hansen Pacific Blue.

I bought this color in 2011. 9 years ago, before I was a MOM!

I can’t bring myself to get rid of it- one, because it’s gorgeous, and two, it is still so smooth and not dried out AT ALL!

I mean, look at it. The creamiest bright royal blue. There’s no other blue like it! Love the brush on this collection, it is thicker than normal and goes opaque in just two coats.

They did reformulate this polish, I haven’t tried out the new(ish) one, but it’s probably really close to the same color- it looks a tad darker, but still so pretty. Get it here for less than $5!

What is the oldest color you have in your collection?

Have a good weekend!

July Faves

Hello! I’ve got some new faves to share! I can’t believe it is the end of July – and life still isn’t back to normal…but at least we have some cool products to distract us with…?

Ok, here they are!

First off, this amazing all-in-one palette! This is the Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette in Gorgeous Glowing Beauty. This palette has three eye colors, a bronzer, two blush colors, and a highlight. This has everything you need to get the prettiest glow. Charlotte Tilbury’s products never disappoint.

A few more makeup products – this Pacifica lip gloss in Beach Kiss. This is the prettiest rose gold gloss that is so shimmery! It’s not sticky and it lasts. Love the color!

This brown gel pencil eyeliner from Maybelline is so smooth and STAYS. I love this even more than my beloved UD Demolition pencil. I use this on my lashline and tight line, and it just looks more natural and softer than using a black liner. It is actually really difficult to remove, but makeup remover takes it off. Love it.

Here are some swatches:

You know I had to include a nail color!

This is Essie Model Citizen, the perfect hot pink creme color! So summery and pretty! Love the Gel Couture line. Opaque in just two coats.

Next, a jewelry cleaner, because this thing is SO COOL. It’s like one of those twist up brush tip lip glosses. You twist it up, wet it, and brush it all over your jewelry. I use this on my wedding ring and it makes it look like when the jeweler cleans it!

Lastly, a bubble bath, because we all need some SELF-CARE.

I love this Dr. Teals Foaming Bath, but had never tried this scent. It smells sweet with the almond oil and is so moisturizing. It also makes a ton of bubbles!

So, that is it for the faves! What have you been loving this month?
