November just went by so quickly! I feel like I was just mourning over the end of October and waiting a whole nether year for Halloween *sigh* The only real thing I remember about November was doing a crazy amount of shopping and dying my hair purple. But I did have some favorite items this month and let’s see what they are…
Holika Holika x Gudetama Lazy & Joy Jelly Dough Blusher-RD04
I got the first wave of this blush in PK01 and they have made some changes besides the dessert theme and added colors to the new range of blushes. The dessert theme makes this lazy egg even cuter than it was before! They also made some smart edits to the packaging. There is a clear plastic cover that is attached to the case making it more sanitary and less messy than the previous design. The color is gorgeous and gives a delicate dusting of cherry red that lasts throughout my day. It has a jelly texture like the name would suggest that dries down to a powdery finish. I love that Holika Holika has kept producing make up with this character and really hope to see more in the future.
Mac Vibe Tribe Blush in Painted Canyon
I’ve has a specific color story for November. This color is like a dusty coral/bricky color that lights up my face and gives me a nice flush. It is long lasting and has a rich buttery texture.
Clinique Stay Matte Foundation #15 Beige
The last time I tried to get a Clinique foundation they didn’t have anything that would match me… I would have had to mix around 2 separate shades to get a match. It was refreshing to see they had a rainbow of skin tones to choose from and I found a seamless match. This is a stay all day foundation that I don’t have to worry about at all or have to powder during the day. It is a medium-full coverage foundation that I apply with my beauty sponge for a second skin feel.
Angelcolor AC Wonder Collect Powder
This is a finishing powder with honey and pear extracts in it to moisturize and brighten up your face. It is a great setting powder that doesn’t look cakey or too powdery on the skin. It comes in one color (light beige) but several different characters; I had so much trouble choosing, but I went with the classic Hello Kitty.
Stylenanda 3CE Mood Recipe Matte Lipstick in #116 Inked Heart
This was my first item from 3CE and the colors in this range of lipstick caught my eye because they are so unusual. This is a beautiful pumpkin spicey color that is very complimentary. The formula is VERY dry and a matte finish but surprisingly comfortable and long lasting. It doesn’t transfer on my drink or crack on my lips and isn’t patchy at all. I wish I could have swatched all of these in person, my poor wallet, I would have taken all of them home with me.
