November Favorites

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette
I was pleasantly surprised by the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. I own one of the blushes, but it’s very light and works better as a highlighter. The blushes in the palette are gorgeous and the color payoff is stunning! Plus, one of the blushes is limited edition so you can’t beat that! It’s also amazing for travel, because you can switch up your blush choice multiple times.
Stila Magnificent Metals Pink Sapphire
I’ve talked about this lipgloss here and here. I’m not even kidding the metallic properties are amazing. When placed on top of a lipstick, it makes your lips look fuller, plumper, shinier. There are several colors to choose from and I’m even contemplating purchasing another Pink Sapphire since this is a holiday collection, which I assume is limited edition.
MAC In Extreme Dimension
I ran out of my Dior Lash Addict mascara not long ago (insert tears here) and almost bought a second tube via Sephora, because I couldn’t find anything else that wouldn’t smudge under my eyes throughout the day. Luckily, MAC In Extreme Dimension mascara does not budge! I can wear this on my bottom lashes all day long without one smudgy transfer onto my skin.
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish Wine Stock
I posted about Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel Polish here. So far I am really impressed. I’ve been wearing Wine Stock lately, which is a beautiful wine color (as the name states). I’ve been loving burgundy and wine shades this season and when you apply several coats, it almost appears black.
Urban Decay Sin Eye Shadow
I started using Urban Decay’s Sin eye shadow recently after receiving it in my Sephora Favorites here. I have to say this color rivals MAC’s Nylon, which is another popular inner corner color. Nylon is much more yellow, while Sin is more bronzy in tone. I’ve used it every day in my inner corner whether I use eye shadow all over the lid or not. It’s a great way to wake up the eyes in the morning.
Tom Ford Nude Vanille 
I’ve raved about this lipstick here. This is BY FAR my favorite lipstick of all time. It saddens me to say that I’m probably half way through the product and do not look forward to repurchasing due to the ridiculously high price (but of course I will, because it is my PERFECT nude). The consistency is opaque and long wearing and honestly it just feels luxurious. Plus the packaging is exquisite. 
Gucci Guilty Fragrance
This is my new favorite fragrance! I tried it after receiving a sample from Sephora and fell in love. I sprayed it on myself and spent all day wondering what the amazing smell was – and it was Gucci Guilty. I bought the 1 oz. during the Sephora VIB Rouge sale, but next time will probably need the larger bottle.  
NYX Vanilla Sky Lip Pencil
This lip pencil was a surprise love. I had free money to CVS and thought it would be a good addition to my nude pencils. Turns out it is one of my most used lip pencils (I commonly wear it along with my Tom Ford lipstick and my Stila lip gloss. My second most used nude lip pencil is NARS Tonga.
Anastasia Brow Wiz Dark Brown
SO I must say, Anastasia’s Brow Wiz is just as good as people say it is! So easy to use and almost full proof. I got the dark brown in my Sephora Favorites and could probably use a lighter color, but the dark brown works just fine when applied with a light hand. The pencil is retractable and a little goes a long way.
Starbucks Peppermint Mocha
Not much to say other than this is the best holiday coffee of all time. If I didn’t have Starbucks in my life I just don’t know what I would do – it’s just so good!
Until next month’s top 10 – have a lovely Tuesday!
