What I've Been Loving | November Favourites
November is officially over. Though I'm kinda late on the monthly favourites I just finished my fall semester at University. IM OFFICIALLY ON HOLIDAY BREAK, this means you guys will definitely see more blog posts so stay tuned!💖 I've been loving all these products mentioned, they have completely changed my routine for skin care and makeup for the better. its been amazing to see my makeup stay on all night with no dry patches or cracks because of these products that I mentioned.
If you want to read about what I've been loving for the month of November just keep scrolling 😝
Let's get started..
This Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil has been my everything for the month of November. I have been struggling for the past 2 years to maintain my dry skin during the cold winter weather in Canada. When I was in Montreal during the summer of last year I picked this up hoping that I could start using it for the winter season. Sadly I forgot all about it lol (something that would happen to me). BUT I found it again in my drawer and placed it on top of my vanity so I could use it on a daily and see how I liked it.
I don't like it at all, I LOVE IT. My foundation STAYS on, there are no dry patches on my face (which was an issue for me) and my foundation does not crack. This product has been a miracle worker for me and I am so happy that I picked it up. Though it is on the expensive side it is definitely cheaper than the Farsali gold elixir (A perfect dupe for it).
You guys definitely need to try it out for yourself and see why I am and will forever be obsessed with it.
This next product I wanted to make sure I absolutely loved it before I mentioned it. This product is the Mario Badescu Facial Spray (Aloe, Herbs, and Rose Water). It is very popular in the beauty/skin care community and I knew that a lot of people go crazy over this facial spray, but I wanted to give my honest review and not have their opinions blind my judgment on the product.
They were definitely right about this product. Not only does it leave your face very refreshed but because of the ingredients, it has multiple benefits.
Aloe Vera: reduces acne, helps with dry skin, reduce skin inflammation, healing wounds.
Rose Water: anti-inflammatory properties, reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, aids in removing oil and dirt accumulated in clogged pores.
The skin care line has a bunch of other facial sprays such as the aloe, cucumber, and green tea facial spray. They also came out with a new Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavender (IT'S PURPLE.. I WANT IT).
Tarte Drink of H20 Hydrating boast is another product that I have been obsessing over. I purchased this product April of this year and I have been using it ever since. This product is amazing when you need that boast of water (H20 DUH!). It feels amazing on the skin when you're applying it. It almost feels like the Milk cooling water and the Hard Candy Coconut water primer stick. Perfect dupes for it because they all have the common cooling effect that leaves your skin amazing.
The Hard Candy product, which was in my October Favourites is the cheaper alternative to the Tarte product. If you want to try it out I suggest you start with this product and once you're obsessed like me try the Tarte product or even the Milk one (which I havent tried yet)
Though I just did mention this product in What I got For My 22nd Birthday this has easily become my favourite lipgloss. It is such a beautiful colour on the lips with or without anything underneath such as a lip pencil or liquid lipstick. I'm just repeating myself here, but honestly, it is worth it. For a Sephora brand as well it is not that expensive compared to other lip products that I have seen and even bought myself. Rihanna did amazing with this lipgloss I will definitely wear this all the time.
This Pur Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette is such a beautiful palette that I have been using for an everyday look. The shades are extremely pigmented and creamy with beautiful shimmer eyeshadows if you want to go crazy. The shimmers are so beautiful I just might go crazy!! Not to mention the packaging is soo pretty. Im obsessed with anything marble and white and this palette is just that. With rose gold around the palette as well it definitely gives it a touch of boujee lol.
I received this palette in the September BoxyCharm box and I have been playing with it ever since. I can say that this is such a stunning palette with your every eyeshadow's and plus your shimmers if you want to quickly change up the look. It's such a stunning palette!!!
The first row of the shades I swatched: Gala
The second row of shades I swatched: Splurge, Stunner, Snazzy, Epic
The third row of shades I swatched: Glitzy, Twinkle, Dazzle, Cosmo
