November and December 2013 Beauty Favorites + Hits & Misses



I am so excited to share my latest batch of Favorites! Since I missed the month of November, I combined some of my most frequently reached for picks from last month with some new goodies I have been loving the past couple weeks. I included two 'misses' as well. I purchased the Urban Decay concealers during their Friends and Family sale, and thank goodness I did. I would have hated to pay full price for such lackluster concealers (more details in video). I also purchased one of their new Revolution lipsticks, very waxy and not comfortable on the lips at all. I will be sticking to EM Michelle Phan and Benefit products for mid-range beauty products from now here on out! On a more positive note, I am so happy with Sigma's new synthetic eye brushes and Kerastase Reflection hair care for color-treated locks. Last but not least, take advantage of Koh Gen Do's limited edition makeup removal wipes in the large roll while you can! They're a great value since the cloths are incredibly gentle and the cleansing water ideal for sensitive skin.

There were plenty of favorites that did not make the final cut for this video, but that does not mean I appreciate them any less! For example, here is the Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia trio that I posted on Instagram, available at Neiman Marcus. I purchased it as a treat for myself, but it would make a fabulous gift for any sweet fragrance lover! I especially adore the mini body creme, which is the ideal size for traveling or tossing into a purse to relieve parched winter hands. NOTE: I know a lot of you seem to pair this with Nectarine Blossom and Honey, but I prefer to wear it alone!


At the end of the day, there are too many things I cherish to cram into just one video. These Favorites videos are just to provide you with an idea of products that I reach for most often during any given month. I did intentionally leave out some products to review them in my 'Best of 2013 Beauty' video, so I hope you will keep your eyes peeled for that one. I promise it will be epic! Merry Christmas, everyone!!
