The holidays are finally here! I can’t wait for my first Christmas with my sweet little baby but on the other hand it also means I have to go back to work soon. It’s not that I hate my job, I don’t, I like it! It’s just hard to think about being away from my baby. To cope I’ve been throwing myself full force in to makeup/blogging. Trying to have a little fun outside of family duties! For the month of November I worked on getting my blog posts back on track and as a fun side benefit I’ve been wearing a lot more makeup 🙂 For the next little while my goal is to focus on using my current collection so that I feel like I’m starting to actually get my money’s worth out of all my splurges. A lot of my faves are actually from my project pan (which is great!) and I’ve been scaling back how much I spend on makeup. So now that the long rambling intro is over with… let’s look back at the month of November!
ELF Lip Balm in Berry Sweet
This is one of my few new purchases. I picked up a couple ELF gift sets because I couldn’t resist. Reviews coming soon! Spoiler: I love these lip balms and have been reaching for them when I really shouldn’t be. My favourite is Berry Sweet.
Marcelle CC Cream
This is from my project pan. I have had this for months but never really mentioned it because right around the time I started using it I started getting skin reactions to something. I’ve since determined that this profuct is not the cause. I’ve been using it and loving it! The Marcelle CC Cream is a Nat recommendation and I’m glad I listened. It has the same effect as my much-loved Nars Tinted Moisturizer but at a fraction of the price. It’s also a better colour match since Nars tends to run a little yellow. I will totally buy this again!
Le Chatelaine Hand Creams various scents
Another one from my project pan! I’ve littered these hand creams all over my house and throughout my purses. Normally I use Body Shop Body Butters in the small size for hand creams but I’m enjoying these a little more because I find the packaging to be more convenient than the mini tubs, the scents are more fun & unique and the cream itself is excellent quality. A total win! I will be sad to use them all up.
Crown C513 Brush
I recently signed up for Boxycharm and got this brush in my first box. It has become my new favourite bottom lash brush! It’s soft, picks up a lot of product and the pointed tip helps me accurately place shadow. Boxycharm is totally worth it. I’m in love with this brush!
So that’s my favourites for November!
