November 2013 Favorites!

posted on: 12.02.2013

Well this is a post I haven't done in quite some time... I'm bringing back my monthly favorites! I've been trying out a lot of new products lately (and also my shopping habit has been out. of. control.) so I figured I would bring this feature back to share with you all some of my favorite products that I've been using. I won't go much into why these are my favorites- but I do encourage you to try out some of these products if you have not done so already! And to my fellow makeup artists- you really need a Paw Palette (#5) and Parian Spirit brush cleaner (#3) in your life. They are game changers.
  1. Cult Nails Lacquer in Wack Slacks- This has been on my nails more than any other color in my collection. Such a perfect shade. Swatched in this post.
  2. Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee- I reviewed this product recently and it is truly amazing.
  3. Parian Spirit Brush Cleaner- A must-have in my book. Have trouble getting lip product and concealers out of your brushes? This will eliminate all that AND disinfect your brushes. And it's a natural product and will change your life.
  4. Make Up For Ever Flash Palette- Reviewed this recently, and is a must-have if you like playing with costume makeup. I used it recently for my Hunger Games look.
  5. Paw Palette- I don't know how I have lived without this. I used this on my most recent shoot when the weather was crazy, and this made my life so much easier! I don't know why I ever used handheld palettes. And these are super cute and sturdy! (And the creator, Crystal, is a total doll!)
  6. Josie Maran Cleansing Oil + Argan Oil Duo- I purchased this recently and have been using this every day. My skin feels so great after using this, and makes me happy to know that there aren't any weird toxins going into my skin.
  7. Tarte 8-Piece LipSurgence Lip Set- I bought this recently to try them out, and I love them! I do wish there was more variety in color, but besides that, I'm totally obsessed with these.
  8. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation- Finally caved and bought this with my Sephora Friends + Family Discount. Such a great foundation. It makes my skin look amazing, and is long-lasting.
  9. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer- I originally tried this out at The Makeup Show, and really liked it, but didn't get it. So I bought it with the Sephora Friends & Family discount, and this is my new go-to concealer.
  10. Ellis Faas Blush in S302- Such an amazing cream blush that adds a natural flush to my skin.
AND, because I am always so desperate to share with you all my latest musical finds, I'm adding something new to my monthly favorites list: a song of the month! This month's jam is I'll Be Alright by Passion Pit. I wasn't too familiar with Passion Pit until last year, when my cousin sent me their whole discography. I listened to them sporadically until I saw them live a couple of weeks ago, and was completely blown away. While their music is super upbeat, the lyrics are really deep and just really speak to me for some reason. But I won't ramble on for much longer. I don't want to be boring :P 

Have you tried any of these products out? What have been your favorite products this month? And what music have you been listening to? I wanna hear what you have to say!
