Happy November! I hope you guys had a fun Halloween and snagged all the free candy you could get last night. I spent my night relaxing after a very long month. Whew. Glad it’s over! Now I’m looking forward to November and the release of these wonderful holiday collections. I can already hear my wallet crying LOL!

Before I can really start back makeup shopping though I have to give you a quick rundown on all of my favorite products that got me through October. Let’s get started!

Pixi Glow Tonic Exfoliating Toner I never in a million years thought a drugstore toner would be able to take me away from my beloved Chanel toner but Pixi has managed to pull it off. My skin has been super clear and radiant since I’ve started using the Glow Tonic. It works so well that I haven’t touched my Chanel toner since.

ColourPop Avalon Super Shock Cheek This is pretty much the perfect highlight for WOC. I fell in love with Avalon the second I swatched it and I’ve been wearing it off and on ever since. It gives a killer bronze glow that rivals some of my favorite high end highlighters. I still can’t believe it’s only $8!

ColourPop Happy Hour Bronzer Contouring can be a little tricky but Happy Hour makes things so much easier because it’s so natural and hard to overdo. It’s become one of my favorite contour products because the cream-to-powder formula is easy to use and has a super natural finish.

Bobbi Brown Bronze Glow High Light Powder Talk about highlight on fleek! I’m so glad this limited edition beauty has made its way back to Sephora because I almost forgot I had it sitting in my stash. Bronze Glow is a stunning deep gold highlight that really pops on my complexion and makes my skin look amazing. It’s become one of my go to highlights.

NYX Vintage Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick If I had to choose one lipstick to wear for the rest of the season it would be Vintage. It just looks so perfect on me! I love that the shade is so close to my natural lip color because it makes it so easy to wear. Whether I’m rocking a dramatic look or a natural look, Vintage meshes perfectly.

ColourPop Feminist Lippie Pencil It’s not often that I go crazy over lip pencils but I love this lip liner! I’m so hurt that it sold out before I got a chance to order a backup as it’s such a nice vampy lip liner. It’s a vampy purple that’s almost black — so it looks amazing with everything. I have my fingers crossed that ColourPop will release something similar soon before I run out.

Bobbi Brown Cement Sparkle Eyeshadow You guys know I love me some glitter so I’ve been obsessed with Cement lately because it’s loaded with chunky silver glitter. I love that I can pat it on top of any shadow (cream or powder) for glittery effect without the mess or need for adhesive. It’s pretty much a foolproof way to do glittery eyes.

L’Oreal Highlighter Silkissime Infallible Eyeliner After losing my MAC I Get No Kick Pencil (which was my fave) I was freaking out. However, I can’t say I miss it too much since discovering L’Oreal’s Highlighter Eyeliner. It really brightens my eyes like my beloved MAC pencil and it lasts me all day too.

What were some of your favorite products last month?

    I think I need that highlight…. Hhmmmm

    1. Yes you do! Bronze Glow is SO beautiful and I’ve been seeing it everywhere lately. I really hope Bobbi Brown makes it permanent!

  2. Jessy Ferreira

    Omg all those products look soo beautiful!!

    My favorite item for the past month has got to be my MAC lipstick in Viva Glam III! Omg it’s the perfect shade especially for the colder months. It’s the perfect combo between a red and a brown. It’s a ‘rown’ or ‘rerown’…? haha

    1. That’s the one Viva Glam lipstick I’ve been meaning to get for years. I agree, it’s a wonderful shade for fall and winter. The hint of brown makes it perfect for me. LOL @ rown and rerown!!

    Mac’s brave, nars outlaw, Mac’s cork lip pencil. Becca shimmering skin perfecter in opal, and mac’s burnt pepper blush. For skincare, definitely ole henrikson’s empower moisturizer.

    1. Okay I’m a little jealous of your faves because they’re so awesome lol. I’ve had my eye on Becca Opal for a while now and I definitely need Burnt Pepper blush in my life. I’m also curious to try that Ole Henriksen moisturizer. I’ve become a big fan of his after trying the Nurture Me cream. Have you tried it?

    Feminist is awesome! My October favorites — Urban Decay Urban Spectrum and Vice 4 palettes, MUFE 15 Artist Shadow Palette, ABH World Traveler Palette, MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus II lipstick & lipglass, e.l.f.’s new Essential Lip Kiss Balms, Tater Rounds (on Etsy) & Drac Makens Marilyn Manson-inspired lipstick collection, ColourPop Ultra Matte in Dr. M.

    1. I’m so disappointed Feminist has been discontinued! I’m really digging your list of faves though. That UD palette is on my list. So is the MUFE one. I’m still debating on which one to choose since I’m going a bit palette crazy this holiday season lol. Which palette is your fave so far?

      1. Rachel Runyan

        I’m sad about Feminist, too. I thought it was a popular shade for them, so I was surprised they DC’d it. I remember it keep selling out when they first brought it out.

        I’ve been palette crazy as well, but then I always am. lol Urban Spectrum is my very favorite, because the colors are just so stunning and richly pigmented and blend so nicely. It’s such a “me” palette.

        Vice 4 and MUFE are kind of a tie for me. They have different strengths. The MUFE palette’s shadows are better quality and more versatile. I think it’s more cohesive as a palette than Vice 4. It has more light shades than Vice 4. I can get complete eye looks from it.

        Vice 4 has beautiful colors and shimmer, but it lacks highlight shades (at least for my skin tone). I can get complete eye looks from it, but usually I end up pulling in shades from my singles or other palettes. It has more on-trend colors and variety than the MUFE. Vice 4 is my favorite for packaging than any other palette I’ve seen this season.

        1. Thank you so much for responding! I was on the fence about Vice 4 anyway so that’s an easy skip. I think you just solidified the UD Spectrum palette for me lol. It was the first holiday palette on my list and it’s still my top pick. I’m so happy to know it performs well because I just LOVE the colors! Now I have to debate between the Lorac Mega Pro 2 palette or MUFE. On top of UD Spectrum, I want ABH Self Made plus 2 of Too Faced’s holiday palettes so I’m really trying to narrow down my list. It’s just SO hard this year!! There’s way too many nice collections out

          1. Rachel Runyan

            You’re welcome. I don’t have the Lorac one; the colors didn’t really appeal to me, so I went Vice 4 instead. I just ordered the ABH Self Made. That purple shade in it clinched it for me.
