My November Favorites

9:13 PM

So, I am a day late in getting this posted.  But, like they say, better late than never, right?  Thanks to the Sephora VIB sale and the ever present sales going on over at The Body Shop, I have found some pretty great stuff.  A few of these products I have been using for quite sometime, but since this is my first favorites post in awhile, I'm including them, too.

1.) The Body Shop's Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub ($14.00 and Cool & Creamy Face Wash ($12.50)
It is very rare for me to re-purchase a skincare product.  But I am about to break open a new bottle of each of these because they are awesome.  I went into The Body Shop to get my mom some of the fragrance oils. Well, they were having their BOGO sale and the sales associated pointed me to these cleansers.  And I could not be more pleased.  My acne has cleared up, but the cleanser is also very gentle.  Not to mention it smells nice and feels refreshing. Right now you can get them for half price. Plus we all know The Body Shop is always having some sort of great sale.

2.) Caudalie Beauty Elixir $18 for 1 oz
I've never been one for face mists, but this single handedly changed my mind.  With essential oils and plant active ingredients, this is an instant refresher for your face.  I carry it in my bag and apply a few spritzes when my skin is looking a little dull.  It also keeps me alert.  Furthermore, this gem is supposed to tighten the pores and improve circulation.  A must try. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

3.) Tom Ford Velvet Orchid $112 for 1.7 oz
I am obsessed with this perfume. Absolutely, completely, and utterly obsessed.  It smells divine and lasts all day with me. Both of which are rare.  The scent has a sexy, mysterious, yet sweet air to it.  I greatly dislike overly sweet and fruity fragrances, so Velvet Orchid is perfection.

4.) BECCA Beach Tints
When I say Beach Tints, I am including the eye tint, lip/cheek tint, and even the Lychee/Opal shimmer soufflé.  All of these are perfect for applying when you just need to run a few errands or are going to class.  The eye tints give a sheer wash of color, and the lip tints pull double duty on the lips and cheeks.  And if you want to add a bit more shimmer and color, throw in the shimmer soufflé. I adore these products. And for application, no brushes are required.  All you need are your fingers and a few minutes.

5.) NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Himalia
Oh my goodness! This is one beautiful eyeshadow! It applies splendidly wet or dry, and the color payoff is amazing.  This particular color is perfection and pairs well with my blue eyes. Loves it.

6.) Tarte Limited Edition Amazonian Clay Dual Eyeliner
I was unsure of how having two different colors in one container (with no separation) would work, but I am pleasantly surprised. Both shades are smooth, creamy and long lasting.  On one side is a black cream liner and the other side has a bronze. Grab this while you still can.

7.) IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Silk HD Anti-Aging Micro Powder
Everybody needs a good translucent powder to keep their makeup in place and shine in check. I love how smooth this powder is and it doesn't settle into pores at all.  It blends right in and keeps my skin looking flawless.

8.) e.l.f Prism Palette in Sunset
I can't get over the quality of this palette. For $10, you can get some of the smoothest, creamiest, pigmented eyeshadows around. Bravo e.l.f. You won for best budget eyeshadow palette.

9.) Bite Beauty Mix n Mingle Lip Mini's
These are a great way to try some wonderful lip colors.  Plus they would make cute stocking stuffers. My personal favorites are the Matte Creme Lip Pencil in Aubergine and Lipstick Duo in Scarlett/Poppy.  Beautiful colors and great formula.

So, there you have it.  These are some great products that I have been using religiously.  Good stuff.  What have you been loving?
