My Current Favorites - November 2014

 So recently there have been a few things that I just cannot put down and I really wanted to share them with you!  You're going to have to excuse the horrible shadowing in some of these photos, I had to take them at night and there was obviously NO natural light whatsoever.  They really didn't turn out as planned.  Anyway!  The holidays are getting closer and I can't wait to start wearing a red lip but for now, let me show you some of the things I just can't live without NOW!


To get things started is the Clean&Clear Essentials Deep Cleaning Astringent.  I know I've talked about this in the past in my 'I'm With The Brand Series,' buy it was a different rendition.  Recently I have started trying out this one and just like the other, I just can't get enough!  It's great to use as often as possible for an extensive toning/cleaning but it really helps diminish breakouts and spots.

The Garnier Color Styler comes with a story!  I'm pretty sure that I've mentioned here that I wanted to dye my hair lavender plenty of times.  I just cannot bring myself to do it somehow because I am scared of what a corporate environment might say about it.  Otherwise it would have been done by now.  I picked up the Garnier Color Styler and used it and it was ADORABLE!  I just put it in the ends of my hair and dyed the tips purple.  It lasted about a week with me switching on and off the days that I washed my hair.  The Color Styler does say that it lasts 2-3 washes.  I also got featured on their site by using the hashtag #funnestgirl!  A rep from Garnier commented on my Instagram photo and featured my photo, it was awesome!  Pick it up and try it yourself!

Target nail polish has always been a favorite of mine.  I think I have even talked about it before on here, I don't know for sure.  I just figured I would include it here because I want people to know how amazing this stuff is and it's 97 cents.  I mean come on! There's also always a Cartwheel deal on it too so how can you go wrong?  Cartwheel gives me liiiiiife.

Finally my favorite thing of this entire favorites post: DETOX Dry Shampoo by drybar.  This stuff is serious magic and I can't really explain it any other way.  The scent is AMAZING which is great because I have yet to find a dry shampoo that I love the smell of, they are always disgusting or just 'okay.'  I guess I would probably say this one smells like vanilla/coconut or just magic unicorn dust.  This is aside from the fact that it works WONDERS with hair.  I seriously get oily hair after the first day of not watching it, that's how bad it gets.  Most dry shampoos don't do a damn thing and this works INSTANTLY.  I would recommend this up and down and over again.


So probably my second favorite thing of this favorites post has to be these flash tattoos.  I have been obsessed with them ever since I saw them on Mr. Kate for the first time and I just didn't know where to get them other than Mr. Kate and online anywhere else.  Sometimes with things you just need instant gratification and I wanted it with these so I wanted to find them in a store.  Enter Marshalls.  I literally found two packages of these, one for $5 and one for $4 and I couldn't have been happier.  As you can tell I used some of them and others I didn't use at all yet because I want to saver all of the suns.  I almost just don't want to use them because they are too beautiful.  They last about 3-4 days on your skin and you can definitely take them off easily if you need to!  My next purchase of these will definitely be on MrKate.com though, I LOVE hers!


Benefit's Gimme Brow has been one of my favorites now for a couple of months and I think I have talked about it before but now it has tough competition.  Although I think it probably will remain my favorite, Maybelline's Brow Drama has given it a real run for its money.  One of the biggest differences between the two aside from the size is definitely the consistency.  When you put the Benefit Gimme Brow on, it's seamless and just sits on your brow without knowing its there.  The Maybelline formula is extremely waxy and you can feel it all day.  It's not annoying, but why wear that when I can feel nothing with the other product.  The brushes are also completely different.  The Benefit brush is much smaller and the Maybelline brush has a round ball at the end that you are supposed to brush against the grain before you brush with the grain of your eyebrow hair.  Interesting, but I still like Gimme Brow better.  :)

THIS MASCARA THOUGH.  Benefit is my queen this month.  I have just been loving They're Real for so many reasons.  I got a sample of it on my birthday LAST YEAR that I didn't open till recently and I have just been dying over it.  I hated it at first as I had another sample that I used previously and I just was unimpressed but recently it has been working wonders.  My lashes are super long and awake-looking.  They also look separated and not 'spider-lash-ish' if thats a thing.

Creamy Radiant Concealer by Nars.  What can I say about you?  I just love the coverage.  I always use this for under my eyes because I have HORRID under eye circles and it does a great job.  I don't normally use it for random spots because I don't think it matches my skin tone all over my face, just under my eyes.  Is that weird?  Probably.  

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk is kind of an old favorite.  I liked this one a while back but I just received it again in my Target Beauty Box and I just like it again!  It's a great lid primer for shadow.


My new obsession for makeup remover wipes is definitely this package from Target's Up&Up brand.  I can't even explain how nice they are for about $4.  Not only are they cooling and relaxing but they can also wake you up a little if you need to in the morning.  One of the sides has exfoliating capabilities and then there's the other side thats just smooth.  Loving these!

The Nudes Palette by Maybelline has been something that I have been wanting to try and I don't regret it.  I know it got mixed reviews online and that's okay but I don't hate it.  It actually reminds me of a MAC pro palette that I created at a pro store last year.  I just moved so most of my makeup is still in boxes but I picked up this to get me through and I like it so far.



Up The Amp & Hot Chocolate from MAC have been my jams lately.  I know I have talked about MAC lipstick on here before so I wont go into it again but I just love these colors right now.  I think they are unexpected for fall and just fun instead of red for fall or maroon for winter.  Also, NYX San Paulo Soft Matte Lip Cream has been fun lately.  I always like this color.

Urban Decay has a great eyeliner and it's definitely this one.  I am OBSESSED with the color Perversion in the 24/7 line.  I love it mostly for my waterline because I hate how they rarely make anything great for the waterline anymore!

Let me know what you've been loving lately!  Leave a comment below or send in a tweet, I would love to hear and get some recommendations.  I can't wait for the holiday season (eeeee!).  It makes me so happy and I can't wait to start posting some fun stuff in that realm.  Talk to you soon!  -Brit.
