November Favorites

Happy December 1st! 

I love when the 1st falls on a Tuesday or Friday because I get to share my monthly favorites right away! I am very excited for this month's favorites because I have found a number of products I really really love! 

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer- When Jaclyn Hill started raving about this concealer, I would walk into sephora and wait for the day I would purchase it. That day finally came about a month ago when Ulta was selling it for $14. My sister and I ran to the store to make sure we would get an Urban Decay Concealer on sale. Since then, I have been in awe of how flawless my skin looks when I use the product. It blends seamlessly with the sponge I will mention later on, and lasts all day. I also think the color selection (for light to medium skin tones) is pretty good. If you are in the market for a new concealer, try this one! 

Cover Girl Clump Crusher Mascara- Woah, throwback. This mascara has been a long time favorite of so many people on youtube. I finally tried it when I saw how inexpensive it was at Walmart. For only $5 there is absolutely no mascara that beats this one. I HATE clumpy mascaras, and, constant with the name, my lashes have no clumps at all. My lashes are fanned beautifully and always look incredible.

Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder- This has been my favorite pressed powder for the past few months. My oils are reduced and my skin does not look cakey or powdery. The powder is very finely milled and blends beautifully. Another bonus is that there is no white cast left behind. The only slight downside to this powder is the price. Somewhere inbetween drugstore and high-end products, the powder runs for $15. If you think about it, it's not crazy, but if you typically go for a $5 powder, this is a step up. Even thought I really love the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, I think the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder does a better job at absorbing oil. 

Eco Tools Sponge- This may be my favorite sponge I have ever tried. I really really love everything about it: the shape, the way it blends product, the softness of the material, the squishiness of the sponge, the price point. Just everything about this sponge is perfect. I absolutely recommend! 

Philosophy Pore Extractor Mask- I talked about this in my haul updates last Tuesday. This mask does incredible things to my face. My pores feel so clean and my skin looks clearer after every use. I highly recommend checking out the mask! 

Lancer Exfoliator- A few weeks ago, I posted a review on the Lancer products that were sent to me. As I mentioned in that post, I fell in love with this exfoliator. I have never ever tried anything that felt better on my skin. I definitely believe that this product has helped my skin so much!

Drunk Elephant TLC Serum- Another product I talked about on Tuesday... I really enjoy this product. As I have mentioned about 100 times this week, my skin has been clearing up (it is by NO means good yet, just making progress) and this serum has definitely helped. I use half a pump every night because I am scared for the day I have to repurchase (it is such an expensive product!). I do think it is worth it, though. 

Tea Tree Oil- Tea Tree Oil has helped clear my cystic acne. Whenever I feel a painful under the skin bump, I slather this oil over it and by the next morning the spot is reduced by at least 50%. The effects of this oil are dramatic and its a natural remedy to help with acne! Always a plus.

I hope December is everything you want it to be! Let me know what products you have been loving this month and what products you want to try out for December! 

Thank you so much for reading and have a great weekend.
