It really is the most wonderful time of year!

How are we already finishing up November?! What what? I’ve had lots of beauty posts this month, including my favorites to buy at the VIB sale (if you get another sephora coupon here in December, check out that list!) and my Beauty Lovers Gift Guide! There’s some major differences in those posts given that some things will be gifted and some are for yourself.

One present for them… one present for me. I’m the worst.

Hmmmm what else.

I’ve also still been DRENCHING my hair in It’s a 10 miracle leave in because it’s so cold and dry now. I know I talk about this stuff constantly but I swear it saves my hair!

K let’s get to this month…

NARS Velvet Lipglide in La Main Bleue. I’ve been super excited about these ever since they launched and the one I got does not disappoint. I love the shade and that it’s a bit more like a gloss. It’s been on my lips constantly.

MAC Liptensity Lipstick. AHHH! I am in LOVE with this lipstick. I grabbed two of these back in October but kept forgetting to mention them. This formula is so comfortable on the lips. I probably say that after a few years of matte/liquid lipsticks, but this is awesome. I love how pigmented the color is but how smooth the lipstick goes on. I love this more than MAC regular lipsticks.

Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine. This is such an oldie but goodie. I think I mentioned it in my first beauty favorites EVER (or maybe even on the blog before I did favorites?!) and nothings changed. It’s the perfect shade of light pink/nude, it smells amazing and it’s SO moisturizing.

NARS Skin Luminous Moisture Cream. I bought this on a recommendation from one of you guys and can’t believe how wonderful it is. I finished up my Sunday Riley Tidal (already repurchased that!) and Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream and figured I’d give this a try under my makeup during the day. I still use Tidal at night – but this stuff is so, so fantastic. It’s light but works well enough on my dry skin.

Hourglass Ambient Light Edit Palette. I’ve never bought one of the ambient lighting palettes and this one was definitely an impulse purchase, but I’m so glad I did it. I grabbed this in store during the VIB sale and love every single shade. Even the bronzer, which I’ve purposely never bought because I thought it was too warm.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Brush. See above: impulse purchase! But an amazing one. If you read my beauty posts then you know I’m not a huge brush lover/user, but this feels like silk on the skin. I love that it’s double ended. Works for the entire palette!

Nirvana Bourbon Perfume. I am so freaking glad I grabbed this scent back in August. I keep falling more and more in love with it. I think I like this one more than regular Nirvana Black! It’s so warm and exactly what I love to smell during this season. I get tons of compliments on this too.

Philosophy Fresh Cream Body Lotion. Specially, the huuuuuge bottle with the pump! 32 oz-er. I have crazy nostalgia for this scent around this time of year, because I used to wear it constantly when I was pregnant with Max. That was exactly two years ago and the scent alone brings so many wonderful memories. Aside from that though, this scent is perfect if you love a hint of vanilla. Especially because this one doesn’t interfere with perfumes.

That’s November in my beauty nutshell. Aside from wanting every single holiday gift set (I might bite the bullet on a Drunk Elephant set!), there aren’t many other releases I want. Besides, I’m totally seeing spring stuff already and that makes my millennial brain hurt (and get super excited). What’s on your beauty Christmas list?!
