November Favorites & December Goals

Happy December! Time for my November Favorites. 🙂 I have quite a few, even though November was a month of trying a lot of new things. Anyone else victimized by Black Friday/Cyber Monday insanity? I’m afraid I went ahead and got a bit of new things. It’s mostly Christmas shopping, but perhaps that’s my own rationalization of my spendiness.

On to the favorites! My skin care routine got a bit jumbled up because of my last BNT Girls mission, but it’s been pretty standard besides that.


Glossier Priming Moisturizer
This doesn’t really keep my face matte or increase the longevity of my base, but I love how it makes my face feel and how nice of a canvas it makes my face primed and ready for my actual base product.

Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint in Medium
I didn’t think I would like this as much as I do, but it’s honestly the perfect base for someone who doesn’t really like to spend a ton of time on their base. I love sheer foundations, so it was no surprise that I’d like this one. It just evens out your tone and creates a lovely base without making your face look like a mask. A con is the shade range; another is the lack of SPF.

Ellis Faas Concealer in S204*
Tried and true. Definitely my favorite concealer for the last couple of months. I have been switching this out with my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, which I also like… but I like this one way more.

Nature Republic By Flower Auto Eyebrow in 02
A new addition to my makeup life, this was something I picked up from Korea. It was on sale and I thought it would be a nice, inexpensive thing to test out before jumping the gun and getting the Anastasia Brow Wiz or the Hourglass Arch Brow Pencil, since this format is something I’m not really used to. I’m happy to report that I quite like this set-up: a hard, softly pigmented pencil, and a spoolie tag-team.

Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Abundance
LOL. You guys know about this and my love for it, so I’ll just leave this here. I’ve been wearing other blushes, too, but honestly, nothing can compare to Abundance.

NARS Sheer Lipstick in Vendanges
I didn’t get to finish this lipstick! No surprise there. However, I’ve been really loving (again) how it looks, so no complaints here.

NARS Audacious Lipstick in Julie
Best lipstick formula of all time. I love Dominique, too, I am just able to wear this more often, without thought. The Audacious lipstick line is just so good. I don’t think any praise for it thus far has been unwarranted.

December Beauty Goals

  • Finish the lipstick.
  • Makeup Clearout.
  • Enforce a strict Project Pan for 2015.
  • Streamline skin care.

And that’s that! Do you have any goals or favorites of your own for November? Do share. 🙂

  1. No more abundance in net-a-porter. I think I need to register with gcash amex na. Haha. (Told you, if I see abundance again, it’s going to be mine. Haven’t bought anything for November, I’ve decided it’s my one allowed purchase :P)

    • I ordered mine through Eco Diva Beauty! 🙂 I know a bunch of sites that resell Kjaer Weis also. It’s so pretty, I promise haha. Belly thinks it’s muddy on her, but I’m a bit darker and I love it because it gives your face an instant lift.

      I could seriously live with just this blush and not even feel deprived.

  2. NARS Vendanges was on 50% off sale in Rustan’s Cebu last weekend so naturally I went ahead and bought myself one. Loving it!

  3. I am also enforcing a strict project 10 pan for the entire year. ( i know clutch your pearls) and will be doing a weekly makeup basket to go through my makeup collection. Basically, its like a show and tell of my makeup collection. This month , I will buying presents from Sephora so I can gain more samples

    • CLUTCHING MY PEARLS. Good luck to the both of us, but I think we’ve given ourselves enough time to plan… Haha!

    • NARS Vendanges! Haha that little nub of a lipstick right there in the photo is all that’s left of it 😀
