November 2015 Favorites

November has gone, can you believe it? and now we're onto December - which means there's only 25 days left til  Christmas! Have any of you started your Christmas Shopping yet? I have to say, I'm actually 90% done! so I don't need to go and push around the mall with the last minute shoppers.

My favorites this month contain some repeats (which only means that I truly love them!):
1. Smashbox - Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Primer
This has become a must have in my makeup routine - as the name suggests, it fills my pores and doesn't leave a greasy residue. Perfect canvas for makeup application after.

2. Maybelline Fit Me! - Hydrate and Smooth Foundation
My first time using a drug store foundation since my teens that I actually like! My shade is 220 and I combine it with a little bit of Charlotte Tilbury's wonderglow to give it even more of a dewy finish. 

3. Embryolisse - lait-Creme Concentre
Adds an amazing level of hydration to the skin in the morning before I put on my makeup. It's lightly scented, reminiscent of jasmine? I am definitely ordering more after.

4. Laneige - Water Sleeping Mask
 I use this every night now that the weather is much colder. I wake up with baby soft skin. I recently gifted the Laneige skin set to my girlfriend to try since I love so many Laneige products! I even started using the foaming cleanser and toner!

5. GinZeng - Refreshing Eye Cream
Salmon tinted and not overly greasy for my under eyes! Love it!

6. Aveda - Shampure Dry Shampo
This is my newest discovery when I went to Aveda during Black Friday to restock on the Volumizing tonic. It doesn't have an aerosol can and comes straight from the tube. It's herbally scented and plant derived. It volumizes the hair slightly while works to absorb the hair grease!

7. Cover Girl - The Super Sizer Mascara
The wand of this mascara is quite interesting, it's an inverted triangle and has short plastic points instead of a brush. Somehow, this adds a lot of volume and length and I can get away with two coats of this and no liner and my eyes still look existent!

8. no name brand foundation brush from Phoenix Beauty that I bought for 9.99
Even though this is no name brand, I had to include this as my monthly favorite only to prove a point to my fellow readers. I wanted to let you know that sometimes, you do not need to buy high end brushes just because you think they will be better than no named brand ones in the market. I got this from Phoenix Beauty at Pacific Mall for 9.99 and it works better than my Sephora Pro Airbrush Foundation Brush which cost triple that amount! 

What have been some of your monthly favorites? Can't wait to hear from you! 

Until next time - XO, M.
