I’m not going to lie, November was all about the luxury for me. I focussed a lot on those higher end brands over here on the blog. One of the best parts of riding this blogger wave is getting access (sometimes early) to a whole bunch of brands and products that you might not usually. However, I still do love my drugstore goodies and it really is true that sometimes price doesn’t always reflect quality (but sometimes it really really does!
Here are some of the products Ive been loving over November!
Beauty lovers have been raving about this shade for so long and I didnt really understand the hype, However I recently purchased this from Sephora.com.au and now know what the fuss is about. While the shade looks super pale and subtle in the pan the shade gives a beautifully understated rosey quality to cheeks.
Pardon My Garden is my newest favourite mint green shade. The Sally Hansen formula is, as usual, faultless and the signature wide and curve tipped brush helps to achieve a clean, crisp edge near the cuticle. You can see the full collection swatched here
Philosophy do great skin care and their renewed hope in a jar dry is no exception. This thick and rich moisturiser is best used at night to give you refreshed feeling skin in the morning. Personally I found that this balled up with certain primers so avoided using it in the morning preferring to slather it all over my face, neck and chest just before bed.

You will see more on this palette in coming weeks but for now you should know that I am loving the soft matte shades to create subtle and pretty eye looks perfect for day.
Its taken me a while to jump on the Jeffree Star bandwagon but Im glad I finally did! The Velour Liquid Lipsticks are gorgeous! Super pigmented, smooth and long lasting. Ive got the limited edition holiday shades Androgyny (soon to be part of the permanent collection) and Doll parts, both are on the super on trend mauve spectrum. These go on smoothly and then dry to a velour matte finish.
November has been a scorcher for Sydney and Ive tried every spray on the market to try and keep my face from melting off. This cult favourite from Urban Decay does a great job at keeping makeup locked in place and looking fresher for longer.
And thats a condensed list of the new (and old) bits and pieces that Ive been loving lately!
