November Beauty Favorites

It’s time for another roundup of monthly beauty favorites!

With our pending move, I didn’t change up my beauty routine too drastically this month, but there are some new products that I’m absolutely loving.

CoverGirl Ready, Set, Gorgeous Fresh Complexion Oil-Free Foundation // After I watched Tiffany D.’s rave review about this foundation, I knew I had to try it. I have a full review of this product coming next week, so I don’t want to give too much away, but just know that this is a fantastic drugstore foundation with great coverage and staying power.


Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige // Nadia recently wrote about this product over on her blog, and it seemed like the perfect product to help add some subtle definition to my lower lash line instead of using powder eye shadow. In addition, I’ve found that this serves as the perfect base to power eye shadows. The color also closely resembles Stila’s Kitten, which helps brighten up any eye look.

L’Oreal Brow Stylist Sculptor in Blonde // I randomly came across this product, and even though I wasn’t in the market for a new brow product, I’m sure glad that I picked it up. It takes some getting used to since it is a heavily-waxed pencil, but the key is to use a light hand and short strokes. I’ve been preferring this over the Maybelline Define-a-Brow for days that I’m in a hurry because this pencil takes less time to fill in my brows. The color also is spot on and has no hint of a red undertone – that’s hard to find with drugstore brow products!


Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in Eastend Snob & Revlon Colorburst Lip Gloss in Orchid // It wouldn’t be a monthly beauty favorites post without my latest and greatest lip combo, right?! As always, I’m staying faithful to my Rimmel retractable lip liners – this particular shade is the perfect pinkish-beige and when layered with the Revlon gloss, it gives the lips the perfect pop of color and shine. This has been my daily go-to “my lips but better” combination throughout the month.

    All of these products sound really great, but I really want to try the Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick!!!

  • I'm just starting to get curious about brow products and will definitely have a look at the L'Oreal brow sculptor. I also love eye shadow sticks and am in the market for a new one! Great picks πŸ™‚

  • Oh I really want to try that foundation! I don't use one now but want to start but don't want to spend a ton of money while experimenting. Thanks for the recommendation! Can't wait to read your review.

    I bought the foundation and you're right, it's great! So many of the drugstore brands don't offer an oil-free formula, so this is a good find!

  • Ooh I'm looking forward to your foundation review! I'm also going to have to try that eyeshadow. Always love seeing your favorite beauty products!

  • I will have to try the ScandalEyes eyeshadow stick! It seems like a fast but cute way to dress up your makeup. I'm all about simplifying and speeding up my makeup routine πŸ™‚

    I've been using that foundation a lot lately too. I'm loving it, but I accidentally bought a shade too dark so I'm having to mix it with another foundation. I just bought Eastend Snob last month too, but I haven't really played with it yet.

    Oh and THANKS for linking up with us πŸ™‚

  • Ok after your last beauty feature with the Rimmel lipstick I stopped at Target and was looking for your favorite color, and it wasn't there! They only seemed to have a few colors, do you have a specific store you go to for your Rimmel products? You're always loving them so I want to give them a try!

  • That Rimmel eyeshadow pencil thing is pretty! I may have to try it. Thanks for sharing your picks and I hope that you have been having a good day so far lady! πŸ™‚

  • You would love it! It's the perfect product to just throw on and go!

  • I think either the Maybelline Define-a-Brow or L'Oreal brow product would be good for you as a newbie – they are fairly easy to use and pretty much foolproof.

  • That's exactly why I like the Rimmel eyeshadow stick because it creates a less harsh effect/line under my eyes than when I use powder shadow! I think you'll love it.

  • It's a great starter foundation, so I think it would work well for you! The full review will be up Monday next week. πŸ™‚

  • I'm glad you're enjoying it – I knew you would!

  • The eyeshadow stick is such a beautiful color and great formula – I plan to pick up more soon!

  • The eyeshadow stick sounds right up your alley and exactly what you're looking for. πŸ™‚ Hope you like it!

  • Thank YOU for hosting the linkup! πŸ™‚ I think you'll enjoy Eastend Snob once you start to play with it – it's perfect for us gals that like pink lips.

  • Were you looking for the Kate Moss #14 Matte lipstick that I used in my Perfect Nude Pout post? I know they sometimes can be difficult to find; try Wal-Mart or Walgreens/CVS. They always seem to have the best selection of Rimmel products. I'll keep an eye out for it for you, too!

  • It's so pretty and a great formula! Happy Wednesday, lady.

  • Thanks for the shoutout girl! Once I finish my bottle of the Stay fabulous I'm going to try out the Ready Set Gorgeous next – I can't wait to read your full review! I think I'm getting to the end of my Define A Brow, now I'm going to have to keep a lookout for that L'oreal product because I'm pretty much always in a hurry haha

  • Jessi Otey

    These posts are always my fav! I can't wait to hear more about the foundation- I'm always down to try a new one! xoxo

  • So awesome you found the perfect color in a brow pencil- I almost think it's harder than matching foundation. Every time you post about Rimmel products I make a mental note to pick a few up to try but I never seem to remember! What are your top favorites from the brand?

  • Love me some new beauty faves! I will definitely be trying these out!

    Isn’t That Charming.

  • I’ve been wanting to try an eyeshadow stick! That one sounds perfect!

  • No, I was looking for the one from your only pick one series. I'll have to check out those stores.

  • That rimmel lip liners looks nice!

  • Pamela

    I want to try the Rimmel eyeshadow stick! I often use powder shadow on my lower lashes and I'd love having a different option to achieve the same look. Great reviews!
