Striking Sweet Novembers


Happy December!
Officially the last month in the year of 2012, and what a year it's been! There have been so many ups and downs, but still my makeup collection grows. Probably the only constant thing in my life, which just adds to the reasons I love it so much. Stability is something I've always yearned for, but with a fast-paced life and career, it's hard to achieve. 

On to some of my makeup loves for November: 

Lush Brazened Honey Mask- I can do a review on this if you ladies want to know more. But basically, it's great for my troubled areas and leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated and smelling like honey!

Lush Eau Rome Water Toner Spray- I have combination skin and after I give my face a good wash in the evenings before bed I always pat this on afterwards. It gives my face some moisture without being overly greasy.

Le Crayon Khôl de Chanel in Blanc- I always wanted to try a white or beige pearl eye pencil for my bottom lashline. I'm glad I finally did! A light wash of this on my lower lashline (in the waterline) is great for making your eyes a little bit brighter and bigger. I don't need a lot of product at all and can see this product lasting a while, which is an extra bonus.

Clarins Gelee Eclat du Jour- Do you remember when you were a little girl, watching your mother apply her creams and makeup at her vanity. There was always a very distinct smell that came from her right before she put on her perfume (Cristalle by Chanel) and it was Clarins products! Clarins does not put any added fragrance in their products and they all smell like lovely fresh flowers and plants. A very botanical scent. Not to mention it moisturizes my face perfectly and my facial skin never ends up being greasy. Again, a very important factor for someone who has combination skin.
Doesn't hurt that I think of my momma every morning :)

L'Oreal Infallible Eye Shadow in Amber Rush- This has been in my favourites before, and some of you may remember it already. This is just a lovely metallic coral with coppery tones in it. I wear it as an every colour, just a wash over my lid, and it really makes me look just that much more put together. I don't put on a lot of makeup from day to day, I think I've been concentrating way more on skincare than actual make up lately. So all in all, this colour is definitely worth a shot! I think it would work on various skintones being particularly stunning on darker skintones. (You can get this at most local drugstores.)

What are your favourite products this month? Have you tried any of the products I posted above?

  1. Hi Kisti Belle, Amber rush is such a pretty color! I'm loving LUSH Eau Roma too; it has such a relaxing scent

    1. Hi Dovey!
      Thanks for your comment. Amber Rush is really great for yellow/olive skintones, gives me that pop of brightness I need in the morning! I agree with Eau Roma, great for applying right before bed.

  2. I really want to get Amber Rush! Ahh, it's so pretty. I've seen swatches of it everywhere! :p

    1. You should, it works on a multitude of skintones!
      Thanks for stopping by :)
