Monthly Muse: November Favorites

This month went by in a blur but also very slowly. It was a rough month for some personal reasons but also a happy one because 1) the weather got cold, 2) Thanksgiving, 3) I turn 25 in two days.

November is definitely my 2nd favorite month (October being the first) so I was happy to have it pass by a little more slowly than usual.

I didn't do much shopping this month to save up all my strength and dollars for Black Friday & Cyber Monday... I will attempt to do a haul over on my Youtube channel once I get everything in the mail!

Because I didn't shop that much, I did a really great little shop my stash and really used everything in my collection (makeup wise)



1. Becca First Light Priming Filter: I'm almost done with this primer because I've been using it every day. I forgot how much I loved it and I will be buying it again. It's super light weight, makes my skin look nice and really allows my makeup to last all day. If you haven't tried this primer, I highly recommend it!

2. Hey Honey Silk Facial Serum: While I love nighttime skincare, I am never good at putting skincare on in the morning. I don't like my face to feel oily or too moisturized before applying makeup, which goes against everything I know, but I just like using my primer on clean skin. That is, until now. I don't know where I got this mini sample from but it's almost gone and it's amazing. I've used this everyday before makeup and my skin feels so smooth and supple. The texture that was on my skin is pretty much gone and I think I owe it to this product. It has a smooth texture, doesn't have a smell, and just sinks into your skin. It's an awesome morning serum!

3. Makeup Forever HD Foundation Stick: I've had this in my collection for a while and always use it sparingly. Well, this month I decided I wanted a quick foundation to apply in the morning before work and this was perfect. It makes my skin look flawless, gives medium-full coverage, and is just perfect to apply in a hurry. I apply it with this PUR Cosmetics brush and it takes me under 60 seconds to do my foundation. I kind of want to throw out all my other foundation & use this only.

4.  MILK Makeup Flex Concealer: I've been dying for a new concealer because I've been bored with my collection and I just so happened to get this concealer from an old colleague who works for MILK. Um, it's amazing!! The packaging is so cute (I love the tube + classic applicator) and it is medium-full coverage. It has a brightening effect while not being stark white *not sure if this is a claim but it is for sure brightening on me* and it blends out beautifully. It's a new must-have for me!



5. Snowflake iPhone Case: When I saw this iPhone case from Kate Spade, I was drawn to it immediately. I'm getting into the real winter & Christmas spirit and this went with my aesthic. However, for once, I didn't think spending $55 on a phone case was a good idea so I decided to look on Etsy... I found a few I liked but then I thought, what's cheaper than Etsy? AMAZON! I got this adorable snowflake phone case that is sturdy and fits my mood to a T.

What was your favorite item of the month?
