Here's a look at the Top 5 things I was loving in November:

I am still using few new products - I've found it a little hard as the pandemic continues on to try a ton of new stuff! I'm hoping to get some time to play with some new makeup and products soon! 

I still have a good variety of new and older products, plus a little of everything - nail polish, makeup and skincare! 

Monthly Beauty Favourites - November 2021

Harvest Moon Shadow from the Terra Moons Cosmetics UO Exclusive Celestial Eyeshadow Set ~ $24.00 CAN for a set of 4. Eyeshadow set by Terra Moons Cosmetics for Urban Outfitters, featuring four pressed pans of shades inspired by the celestial elements. 

Okay, I've shared the Spring Terra Moons x Urban Outfitters sets, but I haven't shared the new Fall Celestial Equinox set yet (it's stunning - my favourite I've tried so far, comes with 4 gorgeous shadows that I was testing out over the month), so hopefully I can get a post up about them soon! 

But, I couldn't wait to share the shadow from the set - Harvest Moon, it is amazing. It is described as a "burnt rustic orange shimmer" and it's very pigmented and impactful! I will share a look with the shadow soon! 

E.L.F. Putty Blush in Turks and Caicos ~ $8.00 CAN. Say hello to that island glow! This lightweight but buildable, putty to powder blush, blends seamlessly into skin. Infused with argan oil and vitamin E, this silky smooth, buildable formula will give you a flushed-from-within glow.

I have been slow to get in to the cream product world, but I have been starting to love cream blushes! This one is so affordable and easy to use. The shade Turks and Caicos is a coral peach shade and it's lovely - what I really like about this formula is that it applies lightly and can be built up, so it will never apply too heavy. I use a duo-fibre blush and just dab it on my cheeks and it dries does quickly and wears really well! (If you want to see it on me, you can see my recent e.l.f. review here). 

Bali Body Gradual Face Tan ~ $41.95 CAN. A daily face moisturiser infused with self tan. This ultra hydrating cream nourishes skin and gradually builds a subtle, natural looking tan. Apply daily to achieve a smooth, even & sun kissed complexion all year round. Made with soothing skincare ingredients and 100% natural DHA, suitable for all skin types.

I am fairly new to the world of self-tanning products, so this was a recent try for me and I was really happy with it. I love that it's a moisturizer formula, so you can just apply it and it keeps your skin moisturizer without worrying about apply other products to hydrate your skin which may interfere. This is also a gradual formula, so it just adds the nicest hint of colour without a huge stark contrast. This also means you don't have to worry about streaks or noticeable differences if you miss anywhere. Here's a little Before and After on my Bali Body post, if you are interested!

China Glaze polish in Modern Auburn ~ $8.45 CAN. Modern Auburn is a dark red creme from the Autumn Spice Collection (Fall 2021).

This is such a gorgeous deep berry red shade - it's so perfect for Fall, I couldn't resist. But also, it's opaque in two coats and wears easily for a week. Also, I hate when a red polish is hard to remove or stains my nails after taking it off, and this one did not do that! If you want to see it in a recent mani, you can check it out here

Bubble T Hand Cream in Hibiscus & Acai Berry Tea ~ $6.00 CAN. Nourish your hands with all the antioxidant goodness you can imagine. Containing Goji Berry extracts, Sweet Orange oil and Shea Butter to soothe and moisturize, our hand creams are the perfect handbag essential.

Who isn't using hand cream like crazy right now?! Seriously, where I live is so dry in the Winter and I'm telling you, it matters what kind of hand cream you use! This is my first time trying Bubble T products and I thought this was really good - it's a really thick formula, but it absorbs well and leaves the hands feeling hydrated but not greasy! It also keeps my hands soft and hydrated for hours! So good! (If you are still looking for stocking stuffer ideas, this one is a must!)

What have you been loving this month?!
