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!


  1. :) I need to check out that Revlon Lip butter! And I have never seen the Vampire Diaries, is it THAT good?

  2. It really is! I want to read the books, but do you know how many other books I have to read first? not to mention there are how many books in the VD series...though from what I understand the show does not do EVERYTHING from the book. Thank goodness cuz anyone who reads them would probably be so bored with the show.

  3. oh and the lip butters...yes you must! I will post a link to a video from one of my fave gurus to your FB wall. Her video clinched my decision to try one.
