November is one of my favorite months and what a month it was. I settled into a routine (I moved last month), cozied up my apartment, and spent a lot of time with friends. As for makeup, I wasn’t sure I had any favorites different from last month but I took a look and found a few.
Makeup Revolution Iconic 1
This palette is easy to use and ideal for the rare days I wear eyeshadow, or bored-with-wine-and-makeup nights. There are two matte browns and a lot of shimmer, but good shimmer. I think there are everyday shades and glam shades in here, it’s hard to go wrong. I mean, it is a dupe for the Naked 1…
Wet n Wild Mellow Wine Blush
As if the internet needed another person fawning over Wet n Wild blushes, this time in the Mellow Wine shade. A deep, matte, pigmented, long lasting pink. And it still looks brand new.
RL de Young Mono Rouge in Rosewood
But this has been my go-to blush. Last minute plans? Rosewood. Too lazy to coordinate blush? Rosewood. It is a mauvey -rose that builds up nicely and goes well with my favorite lipsticks from last month.

Kaviar Gauche for Catrice Blurring Powder Pearls
These may be blurring powder pearls but I use them as a highlight. I wasn’t in big highlighting mood in November, Rosewood is gorgeous on it’s own, but when I was I reached for this. It gives a delicate luminescence, not quite a glow but just enough. I will say though that swirling a brush in there can be a pain as the pearls get stuck in the brush and then fall everywhere.
Essie Shearling Darling
The perfect dark burgundy, merlot color for fall, in my opinion. I wore it on it’s own, with a gold accent nail, with a matte topcoat, and on my toes. I think it’s from the 2013 winter collection but I luckily found this on clearance last month and knew I had to have it.
Embossed small corner zip wristlet
And a bit of fashion to wrap November up. This wristlet is perfect for going out, has a small pocket inside to hold a a card or two and it fits my iPhone 7, plus a lipstick. It’s a snug fit, but a fit nonetheless. It also fits comfortably in my hand and Coach outlet stores usually have a ton of these in different colors.
Happy holidays ya’ll!
