november favorites

I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday! I enjoyed spending time with my family and catching up with old friends. The past few weeks had some crazy events that really made me put life in perspective and realize how important it is to do the best you can each day. Giving thanks to all of the people who are there for me is something that I look forward to doing during the holiday season. 

Back to this post--these products are ones that I used for the month of November. I also used all of them for the Thanksgiving holiday! If you want to see how I wore them keep scrolling for pictures below. I am also going to list all of the products, a few reasons why I love them, places to buy them, and how much they cost.

1. Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
2. E.L.F. Blush 
3. L'Oreal Brow Stylist
4. Maybelline Baby Skin 
5. Benefit 'Watt's Up' Highlight
6. Revlon Lip Butter in "Raspberry Pie"
7. NARS Concealer in "Vanilla"

These products are some of my favorites that I used throughout November. This month I purchased the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster which actually came in a three part kit for $22.00. It was a little pricey for me, but I like to spend a little more money on skin care related items because I enjoy testing out new ones that can help me get my skin feeling great. The Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster is sold by itself for around $48, but I wanted to test it out before I made a larger purchase! I love the smell of this serum. It is a smooth liquid and glides on my skin very nicely. I use it during the day before my moisturizer. The E.L.F. blush here is a new favorite of mine. At only $3.00, this blush is such a steal. It is a light pink and looks great on my fair skin tone. The L'Oreal eyebrow pencil (around $7-$9) is not a new favorite, but it something I keep going back to so I considered talking about it again! I think the color matches my brows perfectly which is why I always use it...I hate when I find an eyebrow pencil that is way too dark. Another product I keep using is the (around $5-$7Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. It just hides your pores so nicely for the entire day and works well as a base for foundation. The Benefit 'Watt's Up' Highlight is a product I received when I redeemed my 100 points at Sephora. I put this product on the top of my cheekbones for an extra glow. The lipstick I have loved this month is Revlon's Lip Butter in "Raspberry Pie". This lipstick was on sale at Walgreens for around $4.00. I wore it for Thanksgiving (pictures below!) and it had fantastic staying power. It is a great dark pink/red. My last product that I have been loving this month is my NARS Creamy Concealer in "Vanilla". This concealer is great for hiding virtually any problem area you have! I am obsessed with how well this concealer can cover blemishes, dark spots, under eye circles, is a miracle product! At Sephora I bought this product for $29.00. I know that is pretty pricey but I definitely suggest this product if you are not satisfied with your current concealer and want to find something that can actually conceal really well. I saved up some extra cash and made the splurge one weekend, and I am very happy I did.
