Monthly Favorites: November 2013

Hey, friends! How was your Thanksgiving? Today I'd like to show you the products I loved this month (in a way, I guess you could say they're a few of the superficial things I'm thankful for--though family is the most important). On to the fun part!

Products I've Used Up: November 2013

There is something so rewarding and exciting about using up a product--perhaps that you get to open and use new ones! However, if it's a product you've really liked, you might be sad to see it go, and feel compelled to buy another one. I've used up quite a bit of products this month, and I'd like to share my thoughts on them with you. So, without further ado, here are my empties for the month of November:

Serious Skin Care Emu and Aloe Soothing Cream ($25 for  2 oz)

I'm so sad this moisturizer is gone! When I first tried it in the winter, it was a little too light for my dry skin, and it stayed in the back of my medicine cabinet. Then, when I got my Seventh Generation Serum over the summer and tried the two together, I realized how much I absolutely loved it. The texture is creamy and luxurious, smoothing and softening my skin without making it feel greasy. I love how soothing and moisturizing it is, while not being too thick. I would definitely repurchase this, but I'm pretty frugal so I hope I can get it on sale.

Birchbox: November 2013 Review

Hey, friends! Today I wanted to share with you what I received in this month's Birchbox!

Birchbox? What's that? - Birchbox is a monthly beauty and lifestyle subscription service. It sends 4-5 deluxe samples that are curated to your beauty profile. It is $10 a month, and has a wonderful rewards program, in which you can earn points for reviewing products and making purchases in the Birchbox Shop. You can then redeem those points for full-sized products in the Birchbox Shop! It's probably the best rewards program out there, in my opinion, which was one of the big draws in me signing up. If you're interested in subscribing to Birchbox, I would love it if you used my referral link. Thank you!

Review: MAC Lipglass in Gitane

Hello, everyone! Today I’d like to show you a lipgloss in my collection that I’m excited to be pulling out for fall: MAC’s Lipglass in Gitane.

Like all of MAC’s Lipglasses, this wand has a doe-foot applicator. Doe-foot applicators are actually my favorite kind, since unlike brushes and squeeze tubes—which can be too messy for me—doe-foot applicators offer plenty of control and precision, which tends to come in handy with more pigmented colors like this one.

Review: NYC Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss

Hi, friends! Today I wanted to share my thoughts with you on the newest lip gloss in my collection: NYC's Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss. I received it in my Influenster Varsity VoxBox, and it's been awhile since I did an Influenster post, so I thought a review was in order! Let's take a look, shall we?

Influenster? What's that?: Influenster (non-affiliate link) is a website where you can earn points for talking about something you enjoy. I mainly concentrate on fashion and beauty-products, and by reviewing products, answering questions. and just generally being active, you can earn enough points to qualify for a VoxBox--aka a box of goodies shipped to you just for being a cool person. I dig it.
