December Favorites

Well all my lovely readers, it has been a crazy month! I have wanted to post about other things, but just have not had the time. Forgive me? ;)

I do not have that much for this month's faves, but just a little something here and there that caught my attention. I will have a faves for the year so expect that in the next week :)
This is mark. Superflip colorkit. I believe if they still have it, it is different eyeshadow colors, but this is the original one. Since I have been so busy, I have not really been playing with my makeup and this is my go-to eyeshadow palette. It has a little of everything from a neutral look to a smoky. The colors are so well pigmented. I also love the other side of the palette, which is lip glosses. 

all I can say is I'M IN LOVE!!! Baby Lips from Maybelline leave my lips so smooth. And they have great flavors too. The first one I purchased was Pink Punch, which at first I did not realize was tinted. It is a very bright pink, and I am glad it actually looks good on me hahaha. I also purchased the Peach Fizz, which is a nude, and Peppermint, which is a clear one. Plus, it was a great price at only about $3. It is by far the best tinted lip balm I have ever tried. *Runs off to by more*
This is Bath and Body Works's anti-bacterial hand lotion in Winter Candy Apple, which of course is one of their holiday scents. I received a bottle of this as a gift at the start of the month. Oh my goodness it smells so good! I always need to have lotion in my purse, especially in these colder months and this is perfect. Nearly half the bottle is gone. LOVE IT!

You must read this book! SOOOOOO GOOD! I am about only half way through the second book because of being so busy, but I read this in about 3 days with interruptions. Otherwise, I could have read this in one day. Seriously, it is only about $7 at Walmart or Target. Go get it!

  Honestly, I had a hard time with favorites for this month. My mind has been all over the place with the holidays, that I hardly had time to enjoy anything else hahaha. I do hope that everyone had a wonderful month of December and enjoyed the holidays. I will be back in about a week to post my 2011 faves. Stay tuned!

November Favorites

Hello loves! Can you believe it is December now?! Where the heck did the time go this past month seriously?!
 I think to change from last month's faves, I will put a little description of why something is my fave :) Please remember that even though this is my beauty blog, when it comes to my favorites, I include it all :)

This is Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake. I think these are fairly new? I have heard so much about them so I had to try one. I love this color. It is a true pink and just lovely. I tried to swatch it but my camera will not focus! It goes on smooth and feels smooth as well. Almost like a tinted lip balm but still very pigmented like a lipstick. I will be purchasing a couple more of these and doing a full review in the near future :)

If you did not know that I am a mascara junkie, well now you do! This is Rimmel London's Glam Eyes Mascara. Um, why did it take me so long to try this?! It has a unique applicator that at first I was like "what the heck is this?" but I got the hang of it fairly quickly. And now...well it is too fab to not buy again.
So  I have had this product for some time. I stopped selling AVON in oh what...April or May? And I bought in that last order. Anyway, I forgot I even had this. It is basically like a primer. It is a gel to powder formula that minimizes the look of your pores. It can be worn alone or to prep for foundation. I love it because even if your foundation leaves a dewy finish, this makes it look matte. However, now that the weather has turned cold, I will be going back to the dewy look since I have dry skin and don't want to enhance it. Luckily, I checked and what I have left of this product will still be good by Spring :)
Another AVON product? hmmm I swear I am not promoting hahaha. So I have been battling with some acne this past month and this has been my  little best friend. I am so angry about my recent bout with acne that I do not care to explain further. It is working. That is all.
Ah yes! One of my fave shows EVER!!! I absolutely hated the US version of this show and am so glad they did not bring it back. I knew it would be crap when I found out about it. We Americans just cannot pull it off.  I just got done watching Season 4 on Hulu Plus. AHHHHH! No spoilers, just if you can watch it all from the start. Seasons 1-3 are on Netflix if you do not have Hulu Plus. Or it might be on reg Hulu? but if you want to skip ads, Netflix is the way to go!

VAMPIRE DIARIES OH MY GOSH! I started watching this when it first started, but like every other show I watch, I cannot keep up with anything because I do not have DVR. THANK YOU WHOEVER FOR NETFLIX AND HULU PLUS!!! Sidenote: why are vampires so hot?! not complaining. SOOOOO not complaining!
Do you like chocolate?  Do you like cinnamon? (wow I had to look at the package to spell that right) If you answered yes to both questions, you are now obligated to go buy a bag of these. And smile and think of me as you eat them.
  I LOVE GLEE. I cannot say that enough! Ever since this episode, I have watched this almost every day.

OOOH OOH OOOH! I almost forgot this! Ok I love nail polish, but in November I purchased 10 bottles and 3 were gifts. I have never bought that much in that amount of time. When I placed them all together like that I nearly fell over. I do not even want to add this up cost wise. Well, thank goodness for Ulta coupon that helped buy the Orly bottles. This collection right here inspired an idea for another post coming soon :) From left to right: NYC(Broadway Burgundy Frost, Plaza Plumberry, Flat Iron Green) Orly(Cotton Candy, Pink Chocolate, Nite Owl) China Glaze(Harmony, Jamaican Out, For Audrey) TipToe from Old Navy(Navy, Platinum, Tip Taupe) OPI Mini(Unripened) PHEW! that is A LOT.

So that is it for November! 

I have a couple reviews coming soon as well as nail that what I should call it??? of the above polishes.

Hope everyone has a great December! Stay warm and beautiful!
