November Favorites!

As usual, this month just flew right past me! I can't believe it's almost December and that holiday season is in full swing! Especially since here in Colorado the weather has been in the high 60s and low 70s-we ate our Thanksgiving dinner outside! Anyway, on to what you're here for-the favorites!

First, I have to say that I almost did all Tarte products for my favorites, but I think I'll just dedicate a post to the brand at a later time. I will however list my first November favorite, which is indeed, by Tarte!

1. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation ($40 Sephora): This foundation is AMAZING! I have super dry skin and I'm starting to have a few fines lines here and there and this foundation provides the ideal level of hydration and coverage for my skin! It's very concentrated so I only need a few drops to cover my whole face. The only minor complaint I have, is that I don't like the dropper, but whoop-de-doo lol. Since this is water based and medium to full-coverage, I think this would also be great for acneic skin! If nothing else, go to Sephora and ask for a sample, it's amazing!

2. Verb Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner ($16 Each Sephora): This is such a great professional hair care product because it makes my hair feel wonderful and it's affordable! I really love the brand Verb because it was developed by professional stylists who wanted to offer quality products that clients could afford. I also love that Verb is cruelty-free, paraben, sulfate, and gluten free! The shampoo and conditioner smell lovely and they're gentle enough to use every day!

3. Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette ($54 Sephora): Ahhhhh this palette!!! So much yasss! I love almost everything Urban Decay and I've been a loyal Naked Palette fan for years. Naked 3 has been my jam for three years, but I think I may have a new favorite! The shades in this palette are gorgeous from terracottas, to a glittery red, and a deep plum shade-they're beautiful! I love that this can feel like a fall or summer palette! The shadows are super pigmented and incredibly blendable and I'm so glad I finally bought it!

4. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup 3 in 1 Melting Cleansing Balm ($38 Sephora): So, if I haven't already mentioned this a jillion times, I love oil cleansers and I am adamant about double cleansing! This product is FAB! It smells so frigging good, it melts onto your skin, you can wear it as a mask, it takes away all of your makeup, and it leaves your skin feeling so soft! I love it! Plus, it comes in a good sized jar and you only need about half a tablespoon to get the job done!

5. Makeup Forever Mist and Fix Setting Spray ($30 Sephora): I've always been a huge fan of the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray and while it's still great, this is a fantastic option for oily skin types because it's alcohol free! This leaves my skin feeling hydrated and my makeup looks fresh all day. I also like that this setting spray has almost no scent!

I'm super excited to see what holiday product launches are out there and I have no doubt that the December favorites will be plentiful! I hope all of you enjoy your holiday season!
