November Favorites

So this is something new I'm going to start doing once a month!

Here are some of my favorites from the month of November!


e.l.f. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter in Light/Fair
For $3 this stuff is great! I use the highlighter side on eyes/dark circles and the concealer side under my brows to make them look sharp and clean.  Both are super blendable.  Not the BEST coverage in the world, but it works well for what I use it for! I blend the highlighter side with my finger and the concealer side with a concealer brush. 

I use this baby every single day.  Smoothest, blackest, longest-lasting pencil I've ever used.  It takes waterproof eye makeup remover to get it off! That might bother some people, but for me it's worth it to not have my eye liner smear.  A little pricey at $18 bucks a pop, but, again, worth it!

I got this (and 2 other blushes) from a HauteLook sale back in October. I've used it for a little over a month now and I seem to reach for it more often than not.  It's matte, which I prefer, and it's super pigmented so a little goes a long way.  I'm pretty fair skinned (NW20) so this adds just a nice flush to my cheeks without being super dramatic.  It's the perfect everyday color! 

So I have to admit that I only polished my nails 3 times this month.  I've been slacking in the department quite a bit lately, BUT I DID purchase an amazing polish in November! Does that count? It'll have to :)
My first bL polish yay! I swatched this on a finger (along with 4 other colors on different fingers) and let my husband decide on what color he liked.  He picked Zoya Jules (which you saw in my last NOTD), but Wallis will be my next NOTD! So you can stay tuned for that :)

(Right now it's $7.99 with a $2 off coupon from Drugstore.com!)
I bought this from Target this summer and stuffed it in a drawer and forgot about it (whoops!) now I won't straighten my hair without it! Wow it makes such a difference! My hair feels silky, looks shiny and no frizz! And for me it lasted 3 days! I have to use a dry shampoo on the 2nd and 3rd day, but my hair stays straight. The directions say to spray this onto damp hair, blow dry it and then straighten, but I don't do all that.  I take a shower the night before and put Chi Silk Infusion on my wet hair and go to bed.  When I wake up it's dry (and crazy looking).  I separate my hair into sections and spray and flat iron as I go. That seems to work just fine for me.  It makes my hair smell good too! 

Fergalicious L-Ryder in Dark Grey $89.99
I ordered these at the end of October and I'm pretty sure I wore them for 50% of November.  I love them! I get compliments every time I wear them!
