November Beauty Picks

I am a beauty product junkie- I love trying new products and experimenting with new brands/colors. nov beauty picsBecause of this, I also have an addiction to subscription beauty boxes. (some of my favorites- Birchbox, Ipsy, Glossybox, Allure Sample Society, Boyxcharm) While I have narrowed down my subscriptions to only the ones I really love, I still find myself with quite a few new products to try each month. Here are a few of my favorite items from the November boxes…

1) Julep Nail Color in Soleil ($11)- This is a rose gold chrome and it’s absolutely stunning. Why I like it? I don’t like it, I love it- it’s the perfect understated metallic. While nice for fall/winter, it could easily be worn year-round. Who sent it? Julep

2) So Susan Universal Blush ($28) A shimmery, peachy-pink “universal” blush. Why I like it? I was skeptical when I got this as 1) there is no such thing as universal blush in my opinion and b) it looked really shimmery. (think old school, 80’s Cover Girl blush) But when I actually tried it, I was pretty impressed. The color was really quite flattering on me- once applied, it’s a warm neutral with just the right amount of shimmer. I’ve been using a quick sweep of it over my regular matte blush for a pretty glow.  Still don’t know if everyone would agree that it’s a universal color, but it certainly worked well for me. Who sent it? Glossybox

3) Figs & Rouge Rose Berry Hand Cream ($7) Moisturizing shea butter hand cream. Why like it? I love the scent and it’s very moisturizing- important for this time of year because I’m just starting to notice how dry my hands are getting. (not something we Floridians are familiar with!) And isn’t the packaging cute?? It’s perfect for my purse.Who sent it? Ipsy

4) Shu Uemura Essence Absolue ($9) An “oil in cream” leave-in hair cream. Why I like it? This cream looks, smells and feels so luxurious. I used it on damp hair and it made my hair so soft and smooth- this is one of those products that I’d never even heard of and now I’ve fallen in love with it. Careful though, a little goes a long way. Who sent it? Birchbox (Vanity Affair Limited Edition)
