Hi loves! It’s better late than never! Right? November Favorites on my blog! I can’t believe it’s already winter, I didn’t even feel autumn at all. The weather has been really crazy so I didn’t feel like trying a lot of new products or putting a lot of cosmetics on my face. Let’s just say I am giving my skin a break from make up. I don’t really have a lot of favorites last month but the things I’m gonna talk about were loved and still being love so much!
♥ Philosophy Purity Made Simple
This is by far the best facial cleanser I’ve ever used! My skin is very dry during the cold season and this cleanser calmed my skin down a ton and leaves it clean without being overly dry. I love the milky consistency and creamy feeling on my skin. It also removes most of my eye-make up which is great and I don’t break out as much anymore. Oh, and it smells wonderful!
♥ Raw Gaia Floral Face Toner
I don’t usually use toners just because nothing seemed to work for me. Most of the products I’ve tried were too strong for my skin or made me break out. Then I found this floral face toner from RawGaia.com, I fell in love with it! The main reason why I love this product is it makes my skin feels so smooth like a baby’s butt! *LOL* and it has a really nice calming scent.
♥ Olay Complete All Day Moisture Cream
I am trying to keep my skin care routine very simple, from facial cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I have a combination skin type, it is pretty hard to find the perfect moisturizer. So when I find something that works well for me, I stick to it. I have been using this cream for about 2 years now and I love it! A little goes a long long way, one jar last me for at least three months. The only thing about this cream is, if you put too much it will make your skin feel oily.
♥ Meow by Katy Perry
One of my favorite perfumes ever! I am pretty upset that it’s all gone now but I’m definitely buying the full size very soon. It’s hard to describe the scent because it has a combination of fruity, floral, and sweet vanilla notes, but I think it’s a perfect. It smells warm, sweet and delicious. It’s quite strong but not overpowering. It’s pretty long-lasting so you don’t need to use a lot of it.
♥ Bath and Body Works “Warm Vanilla Sugar”
My all time favorite lotion from Bath and Body Works! It’s smells so amazingly good, Vanilla + Sugar = heaven scent! Sometimes I don’t feel like I need to spray perfume on, just this alone is enough. It’s perfect for winter, it makes me feel warm and cozy. I love it!
♥ Wet ‘n’ Wild Mega Length Mascara
My favorite mascara! For $3 I don’t think you can go wrong, it is pretty amazing for the price. I can actually say that I like this better than some of the high-end mascaras I’ve tried. It adds really good length with absolutely no clumping, smudging, or flaking! And it lasts all day too, absolutely amazing.
♥ Chella’s Dark Brown Eyebrow Color Pencil
Two most important things I do in my make up routine are applying mascara on my eyelashes and filling in my eyebrows, then I’m good to go. This pencil has a very fine tip, packaged on a sleek mechanical pencil. It has a creamy consistency that glides into place and can also be lightly smudged for a more natural look.
♥ Nivea Lip Butter “Vanilla & Macadamia
It’s super yummy! I usually apply this before going to sleep and I wake up with soft and hydrated lips. The texture is really like a butter, great lip care! Caramel Kiss is also my favorite, so delicious.

Hello beauties! It’s that time of the month, actually I am posting this late again *sorry*. I just wanna share you what I think about the products I received from Ipsy for November. The theme of this month’s bag is “Glam It Up” As invites to holiday events and parties start pouring in, we are excited to say that your November “Glam it Up” Glam Bag will be filled with some go-to products to help you get glam. I got a total of six items which I believe are all full-sized but the bronzer.
Ipsy ♥ Each month, subscribers will receive a beautiful Glam Bag with deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products. Members can watch and play along with the stylists with the same products that they are using. All for only $10 a month.
The Bag – A gold quilt print wristlet with a hot pink zipper. Perfect for the holidays! The gold make it look classy and the pink make it very girly. I see myself carrying this bag a lot this season, one of my favorite make up bags now!
♥ Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched
I love Pixi! Whenever I see something from them in my Ipsy bag, I get excited. Their products are actually really good. I’m so happy that I didn’t get the darker shade because I don’t really use bronzer a lot or contour my face. I use bronzers to add color to my face when I feel like I’m looking kinda pale. This bronzing powder gives your complexion the warmth and luminosity of naturally sunkissed skin. Also, this product contains Vitamin E to protect the skin.
♥ Kiss everEZlashes Lash Double Pack
This is probably my least favorite from this month’s bag. Don’t get me wrong, it’s definitely a great item but I’m just not a fan of falsies. I usually have a hard time applying them that’s why I choose not to *LOL* but since this one comes with an applicator, I think it will be a big help if I try it again. These lashes are made from highest quality human hair, lightweight and reusable.
♥ Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon “Shameless”
Be a bombshell is one of my favorite brands. I just love their products, the quality and packaging! Thou I don’t wear lipstick/crayons/stains very often, this is definitely good to add in my collection. A glossy lip crayon with a smooth texture that is great for travel and touch-ups on the go. This color is perfect for holidays!
♥ Nailtini Nail Lacquer “Caviar Cocktail”
Again, one of my favorite brands! Not a fan of Silver nail polish but since it’s on the dark side, I’m gonna give this a try. Thou I really wish, I got the Champagne color instead. Just in time for the year’s most glamorous season, this shade is great for any occasion!!
♥ Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil “Amethyst”"
Definitely perfect for winter! I am so happy that I got it in the shade Amethyst, it’s gorgeous! This pencil provides a magnificent metallic finish and are so versatile, soft, and creamy that they can be used as a liner or eyeshadow base! It is highly-pigmented and has a gorgeous, micro-glitter finish.
♥ em Michelle Phan waterliner “amazing grey”"
This month everybody got something from em Cosmetics as a bonus. I was very excited to receive her waterliner but I wish I got Ro’s Gold, In the Nude or Bronze Kiss instead. I was also looking at her pillow plush cushiony lip balm, I heard it’s really awesome! This richly pigmented liner grabs everywhere, including your waterline—without budging or smudging. Dark shades define. light shades brighten. It’s the perfect accessory for your eyes.
Verdict: I think Ipsy is getting more amazing every month! I like all the products I received, they’re all perfect for this season. Most of the items I received are full sized, so that’s definitely a win! For $10, you get all these products. It feels like Christmas every month!
