Monthly Favorites: November 2015

This month I really don’t want to moan about the fog and cold and rain and blah blah blah and everything I hate about the fall and winter. For a change, I’ll focus on what I like about the current season… like watching Netflix with Mr. Page on the couch under a thick blanket, drinking hot cocoa to warm my hands and soul……………………………………………………………………………………………………… Crap, I’m already pausing! ………………………………………………………………… Oh yeah, of course, I like wearing these beautiful warm tones on me face!

KIKO Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick – 106 Mauve

During the day, I’ve been wearing a lot this warm rose (not mauve!) lipstick from KIKO’s new range with swoon-worthy packaging. I like to apply a thin layer on my lips and then work it in with my finger. It’s a very flattering MLBB type of shade and keeps my lips nicely hydrated. Check out my review for more details and lip swatches.

Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette

You probably saw this one coming, since in my last post I told you I use this palette all the time. It’s super versatile as it can be paired with any shimmers as well as used on its own. It’s also very season-appropriate, as the shades it features are ideal for a very chic all-matte autumnal look.

Essence Sun Club Matte Bronzing Powder – Blondes 01 Natural

I’m a huge fan of bronzer, I love how it brings my complexion back to life in just a couple of sweeps. Now that I’m at my palest, I like using this light bronzer from Essence: it smells like coconut, is very finely milled and super affordable. I highly recommend it!

NARS Duo Eyeshadow – Isolde

As you may remember from my review, I am madly in love with this little duo. And how could I not be? Everything about it is amazing! Everything – shades, pigmentation, longevity, blendability – but one thing: the price. You better start writing that letter to Santa… 😉

Have you tried any of these? If you haven’t you probably should, HA!

    Sometimes cuddles on the couch and hot cocoa are all we get. But now Christmas is approaching, so you can add cookies and candles and more hot cocoa to the list!

      These are the only eyeshadows from NARS I have tried and am super impressed. I heard quality is not consistent throughout the range, though.

    I haven’t tried ANY of these; but the one I want to try is the kiko lipstick! I’ve browsed through many good reviews of Too Faced Natural Matte Eyeshadow Palette, very tempted but I shant!

    I haven’t tried any of these but all of them look amazing! On Black Friday I went to Kiko to see if they had that lipstick collection and they had taken it back (I was really disappointed). I wish they bring it back soon, they’re really gorgeous.
    Isolde looks so pretty on you, I love it, and so does the Too Faced palette so… we can conclude that you look stunning always hahaha
    I hope you have an amazing day, Carol xx

    I also love to wear bronzer. I have been using one from Lancome. I would like to try yours; I love that it smells like coconut. I wish I could create the makeup looks you can. Thanks for sharing your favorites with us, Carol!

    I’m still waiting for the new lipstick to arrive on Kiko’s US e-store! I made an order last week when they had their Black Friday sale, I can’t wait for it to arrive. I ordered a ton of liners, lol!

    Glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t enjoy autumn and winter! I miss the sunshine. 🙁 This is a really great selection of favourites, I adore the look of that eyeshadow palette and really enjoyed your review of it! x

    You got some pretty and nude favorites! I have been wearing loads of brown eyeshadows (so nudes on me) on my eyes lately.. and so I love your combination of soft eyes and soft lips 🙂 I’d like to try a creamy lipstick by Kiko too!

    Great favorite products! I always apply a thin layer on my lips and then work it in with my finger too! That way it creates a more natural lip color instead of being bold.

    Love, Layla Rosita

    Every single one of your favourites look gorgeous Carol, just my style too! I said before I really want to try the Too Faced palette, as I’m obsessed with their products. Also the NARS Duo palette looks so pretty, I need that too.:D

    Awesome idea to focus on what you love about the season. We are oftentimes pouting and complaining about what we dont like. I love the palettes, very pretty colors. The lipstick too.
