November 2015 Beauty Favorites
It is that time of the month when we are talking about favourites, again. Can you believe that it is the last month of the year now? Speaking of December, I will be extremely busy so probably there will be a lack of posts, although there are tonnes of products I want to share about with you, but I will try to keep you updated on Instagram.
And here is the list of products I have been loving in November.
theBalm the Manizer Sisters palette
I’ve had this palette on my wish list ever since I’ve found out about it and finally got in November, and it is all kinds of dreamy, soft buttery textures that creates glow and luminosity, your “winter’s skin” best friend in a pan. I will write a detailed review this week, so stay tuned.
Rouge Bunny Rouge Kiss Elixir Lip Balm (review)
This lip balm is one of my favourites because it just works, nice formula, feels lovely on the lips, and it heals the cracked skin or prevents it from happening. This is my second tube. I squeeze out some on my finger, and also apply what is left on my cuticles.
Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liners, one in East End Snob
Yes, I did get this lip liner to see why everyone loves it so much. I love Rimmel lip products anyway so this felt like a nice addition to my makeup bag. East End Snob works great for making your lips look fuller in a non-obnoxious way, there is not need to overdraw them like there is no tomorrow.
Clarins Eyebrow Pencil in 02 Light Brown
Considering that I have been using this eye brow product exclusively on my brows for the last several months I am surprised that I’ve never mentioned it. I like the texture which is not too soft so you get control over the application but at the same time it is not harsh; the bets formula. The spoolie on the other end is very helpful, too.
Vichy Aqualia Thermal Rich (for dry skin) and Elemental Herbology Vital Glow Overnight Resurfacing Creams.
These were my creams of choice for the last several months (or weeks when it comes to EH), and both are excellent. Vichy lives up to the name and works great for hydrating the skin and making it look and feel somehow plumper and more luminous, it is also a nice base for makeup, I find. Without a rich cream in AW period some bases just enhance the dry patches I have, with this product I totally forgot about the problem.
As for the Overnight cream, it is like a miracle. This month was insane and I barely had any sleep and was always on-the-go, but no matter how tired I was, my complexion never gave it away, and I think this cream has a lot to do with it. Vital Glow is a spot-on name.
Another skincare product that I’ve been totally in love with is La Roche-Posay Redermic [R] Eyes – Retinol anti-wrinkle. I’ve bought it back in summer after someone recommended it to me. I’ve started using eye creams on a regular basis when I was 20, or even a bit younger, and with my dry and dehydrated skin this is a must. I find that this particular cream is one of the best that I’ve used, as I have noticed a real difference, more about it in a review later.
Body care and hair care
Color Wow Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac
This is truly the most amazing hair styling product I have used in a while, say hello to glossy and lush looking hair. Several friends commented on my hair lately, and I know that it is because of this. Yes!
Aveeno Colloidal Oatmeal and Neal’s Yard Remedies Bee Lovely to your hands hand creams as mentioned here.
Both are absolutely brilliant and effective. I am obsessed with hand creams, and these get my seal of approval. While Aveeno is scent free and works for people with sensitive and allergy-prone skin (one of my friends has been using the brand for years and swears by their products), Neal’s Yard has a nice and non-overpowering scent. And you can never go wrong with a good hand cream, as a present, everyone needs it!
