The BEST Makeup (& more) from November 2023
Tint and Protect SPF50, Tinted Serum by C
One thing that immediately stood out to me this month was a brand new brand called C and their Tint and Protect SPF50, tinted serum. This product has quickly become a favorite of mine. It gives my skin a beautiful, natural finish that looks like skin. The fact that it contains a mineral SPF is a bonus for me, as I’m always on the lookout for products that provide sun protection. I find that it offers great coverage while still looking fresh, making it perfect for everyday wear.
In my exploration of new products, I came across some impressive fragrances that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. While I expected my favorites list to be longer this month, these fragrances definitely made the cut. The scents were unique and captivating, and I found myself reaching for them time and time again. If you’re in the market for a new fragrance, I highly recommend keeping an eye out for these options.
Game-changing Hair Care
Hair care is something that shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to our beauty routines, and this month, I discovered some game-changing products for my locks. Whether it was a nourishing hair mask, a volumizing spray, or a styling tool that made hairstyling a breeze, these products truly elevated my hair game. If you’re looking to switch up your hair care routine or add some new products to your collection, be sure to check out these gems.
Of course, no beauty roundup would be complete without mentioning some standout makeup products. While my favorites list may be shorter than expected, the products I did try and love went straight to the top. From a pigment-rich eyeshadow palette to a long-lasting liquid lipstick, these makeup must-haves have become staples in my daily routine. If you’re looking to update your makeup stash or try something new, definitely consider giving these products a try.
The Best Foundation of November 2023: Fresh-Faced Perfection
When it comes to foundations, there’s one that has quickly become a favorite of mine. While it may not be classified as a typical foundation, it delivers incredible results and feels amazing on the skin. The lightweight formula provides a lovely dewy finish, giving it a natural and skin-like appearance. I can’t sing enough praises about this product, and I’m thrilled that it has exceeded my expectations. I am particularly delighted that I purchased it during the Sephora sale, as it truly is a remarkable find.
An Unexpected Gem: The Viv Concealer
This month, I decided to venture into the world of concealers and tried out the Viv concealer. I must admit, I was taken aback by the results. While I have experimented with various concealers recently, this one stands out from the crowd due to its unique texture. The formula is slightly thicker, which I surprisingly enjoy. I find that when a concealer has this kind of thicker, tackier consistency, similar to the beloved Nars Radiant Creamy concealer, it blends effortlessly and stays put throughout the day.
I am impressed by how buildable this concealer is, as a little goes a long way. You have the option to sheer it out for a more natural look or layer it for maximum coverage. This formula has exceeded my expectations and ticks all the boxes when it comes to what I desire from a concealer. It’s truly a joy to use and has quickly become a staple in my makeup routine. I personally wear the shade “Light One” and couldn’t be happier with the results.
Buttery Smooth Application
The consistency of the Viv concealer is incredibly buttery, making it a dream to apply. It effortlessly blends into the skin, leaving behind a flawless finish. Despite its creamy texture, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, which is always a relief. This product manages to strike the perfect balance between lightweight comfort and excellent coverage, making it a must-have in every makeup collection.
Overall, both the foundation and concealer mentioned above have made a lasting impression on me. They have quickly become go-to products that I cannot imagine my makeup routine without. Their performance, texture, and ability to enhance the natural beauty of the skin have truly impressed me. I highly recommend giving them a try, as they may just become your new favorites as well.
CL Tinted Serum
The CL tinted serum is a fabulous makeup product that I have fallen in love with. When combined with the Meritt bronze balm, the result is truly beautiful. I can’t even recall if I mentioned this in a previous favorites video, but it deserves to be mentioned again. The tinted serum provides a flawless finish, giving a natural glow to the skin.
Meritt Bronze Balm
The Meritt bronze balm is exactly what its name suggests a balmy bronzer. I love wearing this product all over my skin. Although it may seem like it doesn’t provide much coverage, it actually enhances your natural complexion, making it appear as if the bronzed glow is coming from within. The balmy finish adds a touch of radiance, making it perfect for everyday use. It pairs beautifully with tinted serums and moisturizers, giving a subtle warmth to the skin.
I just had to mention the Quint shade of the Meritt bronze balm. This specific shade has become my go-to choice. It offers a stunning, natural-looking bronzed effect, enhancing my complexion in the most beautiful way.
Now, onto something unexpected the freckle pen. I never thought I would be a fan of such a product, but this little gem has won me over. The freckle pen adds a touch of whimsy to any makeup look. It provides a natural-looking freckled effect, giving the illusion of sun-kissed skin. It’s a unique and fun addition to my makeup routine.
The CL tinted serum, Meritt bronze balm, and freckle pen are all standout makeup products that I highly recommend. They each offer something different and exciting, allowing you to experiment with your makeup routine and enhance your natural beauty. November 2023 has brought us some truly remarkable makeup finds and these are definitely the best of the best.
The Buble and Rudy Berry Collab
I just feel like sometimes makeup can look really unnatural, but when it’s done right, it can have a beautiful effect. This is why I am excited to talk about the Buble and Rudy Berry collaboration. One of their standout products is the Berry freckled pen, and I must say, it’s really nice.
A Natural Look
What I particularly love about this freckled pen is that it doesn’t immediately stain the skin. This allows me to press it in and make things look a lot more natural if I want to. I’ve been using it a lot lately and have been really liking the results.
Faux Freckles Trend
I know there are mixed feelings about faux freckles because it has become such a trend. Some people with natural freckles may question why others would want to imitate them. I find it funny how in the beauty world, we often desire what we don’t naturally have. It’s like wanting curly hair when you have straight hair, or straight hair when you have curly hair. We’re always wanting something different.
Personally, I don’t have many natural freckles on my nose. I have them mostly on my cheeks and arms, and they randomly appear. That’s why I like to add freckles with this pen, just a little bit, to enhance my look. It gives me the freedom to experiment and achieve the style I desire.
The Buble and Rudy Berry collab has brought us some great makeup products, and their freckled pen is definitely a standout. Whether you want to add a touch of natural-looking freckles or simply play around with different looks, this product is worth trying.
Valentino Eye to Cheek Dual Use
I recently came across the Valentino Eye to Cheek dual-use product during the Sephora sale, and I must say, I’m glad I decided to give it a try. This blush and shadow in the shade Nine offers the most beautiful peachy-pink color. It gives my complexion a healthy, sun-kissed glow, even though I haven’t actually been out in the sun. While I do think the price is quite steep for a blush, as a makeup enthusiast, I can’t help but indulge in high-end products. However, you don’t necessarily need to splurge on a Valentino blush to achieve a similar effect.
Tower 28 Formula Brown Mascara
Another product that caught my attention this month is the new color of the Tower 28 formula. I decided to try their brown mascara, and I’m currently wearing it. The brown shade adds a softer touch compared to traditional black mascaras, defining my lashes without looking too dramatic. However, I’m not entirely sure if it’s showing up on my lashes as I expected. Perhaps you can see it better in this picture. Regardless, I am loving the effect it gives to my overall makeup look.
Tower 28 Mascara: A New Obsession
I am like in an obsession all over again with the Tower 28 mascara. They sent me the brown one, and I finally tried it out and I’ve been loving it. It especially works well with the whole skin serum tint and the balmy bronzer. The mascara has a thicker concealer-like formula, which helps correct areas that need a little extra coverage. Brown mascara and faux freckles have become a daily vibe for me, and I really like it.
Hooda Beauty Brow Pencil: The Game Changer
Okay, let’s talk about brows. This may seem random, but the Hooda Beauty Brow Pencil is the bomb. Their micro shade brow pencil is so good. I always thought that Kosas was the first brand to come up with the micro brow pencil concept, but it turns out Huda Beauty did it first. I can’t believe I didn’t realize or remember this. Both pencils have a similar width, so they basically look the same to me. These tiny pencils have become a staple in my brow routine as they allow me to draw on teeny tiny marks that resemble actual brow hairs. This creates a more natural-looking effect, which I absolutely love.
Makeup by Ariel and Kylie Jenner
Recently, I was watching a clip of Makeup by Ariel doing Kylie Jenner’s makeup, and I noticed he was using the same brow pencil. It just goes to show how popular and well-loved this product is within the beauty industry. If professional makeup artists are using it, then you know it must be good.
November 2023 has brought us some incredible makeup discoveries. From the Tower 28 mascara to the Hooda Beauty brow pencil, these products have become must-haves in many beauty lovers’ routines. Whether you’re looking for a natural-looking brow or a voluminous lash, these products deliver. Keep an eye out for more exciting releases in the coming months, as the beauty industry is constantly evolving and bringing us innovative and game-changing products.
The BEST Micro Brow Pencil
I recognized the packaging and I was like wait. I have that brow pencil. I want to try that so I did turns out it’s a fabulous little micro, brow pencil, so I’ve been loving. I have been using this micro brow pencil and it has quickly become one of my favorite makeup products. The precision it offers is amazing, allowing me to create natural-looking brows effortlessly. It’s definitely a must-have for anyone who wants to achieve flawless brows.
The Perfect Lip Cheat
Now let’s talk lips. I’ve been so obsessed with this lip cheat from Charlotte Tilbury in the shade love trap. This is a new purchase for me and this love trap color is so nice, it’s like a mauvey, pink. I apply it all over my lips lightly, and then I add a little gloss on top. The combination of the lip cheat and the gloss creates a beautiful, plump finish. The formula of the lip cheat is incredible, providing long-lasting color and a comfortable feel on the lips. It’s definitely a game-changer in my makeup routine.
A Perfect Lip Combo
This lip cheat in love trap actually looks so nice with dollia effortless lips. I’ve been pairing it with this lip liner a lot. The lip liner is slightly more like brownish mauve, but I feel like they work really well together. If you’re looking for a lip combo recommendation, I highly recommend trying this combination. You won’t be disappointed.
Introducing Lifter Gloss in Gummy Bear
Then I tried out this lifter gloss, another formula that I already love, but I tried a new shade. This is Gummy Bear. This is the one that I’m wearing today and I love it. The lifter gloss formula is already amazing, but this new shade takes it to another level. It’s a sheer jelly pink that looks incredibly cute and feminine. The name “gummy bear” adds to its charm. It’s the perfect gloss to complete any makeup look.
My Favorite Lipstick
By the way, this is my lipstick from my beauty brand revie Beauty. If you didn’t know already, shameless plug, it’s my freaking favorite, I love it. The formula of this lipstick is fantastic, providing intense color payoff and a creamy texture. It’s definitely a must-have in any makeup collection. I can’t recommend it enough.
The best makeup and more from November 2023 includes the amazing micro brow pencil, the gorgeous lip cheat in love trap, the perfect lip combo with dollia effortless lips, the new shade of the lifter gloss in gummy bear, and of course, my favorite lipstick from my beauty brand revie Beauty. These products have quickly become staples in my makeup routine, and I highly recommend trying them out for yourself.
The Pat McGrath Gloss: A Juicy and Substantial Formula
Ah, I love it so much great new color and a formula that I already know. I love also. I bought this gloss. The Pat McGrath gloss is so pretty its so nice. This one does have like sparkly reflex in it um.
The shade I bought is love potion, and this makes me want to buy more of this formula. This is such a juicy gloss, its a little bit more. I dont want to stay sticky because its not gloopy, but it does have a little more like weight to it. It feels like a substantial gloss on the lips, but its still comfortable point is I love the formula love this color.
I just find that especially kind of touched up, even though I just applied the lifter gloss. Maybe I can show you like just in the center, see how those little tiny glitter particles just illuminate the center of the lips. I love it. I love it. Ive been really enjoying that gloss on top of like lipsticks, with a lip liner, like as part of my lip combos Ive been reaching for that a ton I love it.
The Loyal Hand Cream: A Savior for Cracked Hands
I finally tried this out and I feel like Im, probably late to the game on this, but the loyon hand cream. Oh, my goodness, my hands have been literally falling apart ever since it got so freezing cold. All of a sudden here in Utah and this brand had just barely sent me this hand cream, and I had heard good things and I was like you know what Im just going to throw it in my purse.
The Best Hand Cream for Hydrated and Non-Greasy Hands
It’s hard to find a hand cream that strikes the perfect balance between hydration and greasiness. Many of them leave a film on the hands that can be quite bothersome, especially when you’re in the middle of something or using your computer. However, I recently discovered a hand cream that exceeded my expectations and left me absolutely obsessed with it.
The hand cream I’m talking about has a unique formula that not only hydrates the hands but also leaves a beautiful, almost powdery finish. It absorbs quickly into the skin, allowing you to continue with your activities without any inconvenience. I have been using it for the past couple of weeks, and I must say, I have had zero issues with dry hands. This is truly a miracle, especially during this time of the year when the cold weather tends to dehydrate the skin.
When I first tried this hand cream, I understood why it has been so popular. Every time I searched for hand creams online, this particular one would always pop up. I finally gave it a go, and it definitely lives up to the hype. My hands not only feel incredibly hydrated but also look healthy and nourished. I can’t recommend it enough.
A New Obsession: Victoria Beckham Fragrances
I must admit, I have a slight obsession with Victoria Beckham products. Her latest release of fragrances had me instantly intrigued, and I couldn’t resist adding them to my cart.
While I haven’t had the chance to fully explore these fragrances yet, I have been using some of the lip liners from Victoria Beckham’s line. Although I haven’t used them enough to feature in a favorites video, I already love them. The quality and performance of these lip liners are exceptional, and I can’t wait to try more of her makeup products in the future.
For those who appreciate high-quality beauty products, Victoria Beckham’s brand is certainly worth exploring. Whether it’s her fragrances or makeup items, you can expect nothing but excellence from her range.
The Fragrance Sampler
Like a little fragrance sampler to that order and when they came in the mail I was floored. I love finding new fragrances Im so picky with fragrances, though so I go through a lot of trial and error to try to find like new, really special fragrances and the three that she launched are insanely, incredible, theyre, all so beautiful, but the one that is so Extra special is sweet 302.
The Yellow Fragrance
I have the Teeny one right here. I also love the yellow one. What was the yellow one called sand, something something drive its in the yellow packaging. That one is my second pick, but this one is like so good heres a little backstory though I love more masculine scents. I love a little bit of like musk. I love unisex fragrances, so backstory on me. If you dont, like those things, you wont like this perfume cuz. This is very like manly, but theres still like a hint of feminine in there. I dont know its so good sweet 302.
The Pricey Perfume
I only have the tiny bottle. I did ask Santa Claus for the full size this year, but this is a pricey perfume so well see, but as of now, this little mini is really its really doing the most for me and its living in my purse Im absolutely obsessed with it. So I would like to collect this one first um and then the yellow one later, hopefully its just its pricey, but Im glad that I was able to try this use it for a long time and like I know I love this so thrilled about that.
Makeup Brushes: BK Beauty Nikki Lose Brush Set
I recently stumbled upon the BK Beauty Nikki Lose Brush Set and oh, my goodness, it has quickly become one of my favorites. While I cannot remember where all the brushes are from the set, the ones in front of me have completely won me over. In particular, the n16 brush has become a staple in my makeup routine. Its ability to flawlessly blend out concealer in this specific area is mind-blowing. I genuinely hope that they release the brushes individually, as I find myself needing multiples of this brush. Additionally, the n14 brush is perfect for precision contouring or even as a powder brush. It’s like perfection in a brush, and I cannot get enough of it. Kudos to Nicky for creating such fantastic brushes.
Hair Care: Anna Blue Oil Cleanser
Moving on to hair care, I’ve been using a product from a new brand called Anna Blue, or is it Anna Blue? Regardless, it’s the brainchild of Lauren Perez, and I must say, I’m thoroughly impressed. I’ve been testing out these products for a couple of months now, and the oil cleanser has become a firm favorite. Its ability to cleanse and nourish my hair is exceptional. I can’t help but feel that my hair has become healthier and more luscious since incorporating this product into my routine.
Aside from the amazing makeup brushes and hair care products, I have come across a few other noteworthy discoveries in the beauty world. While not directly related to makeup or hair care, I felt compelled to share them with you.
1. Oral Hygiene: Dental Fresh Toothpaste
Recently, I have been using Dental Fresh Toothpaste, and let me tell you, it has completely transformed my oral hygiene routine. The refreshing minty flavor and the way it leaves my teeth feeling clean and smooth are unmatched. If you’re looking to improve your oral health, I highly recommend giving this toothpaste a try.
2. Skincare: Glow Serum by Glow Away
In the realm of skincare, the Glow Serum by Glow Away has become my go-to product. Its lightweight formula absorbs easily into the skin, leaving behind a radiant glow. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in the overall brightness and texture of my skin since incorporating this serum into my routine.
3. Fragrance: Scented Candle by Scentful Bliss
Lastly, I stumbled upon the Scentful Bliss scented candle, and it has become an essential part of my relaxation ritual. The comforting scent fills the room, creating a serene atmosphere that helps me unwind after a long day. The high-quality craftsmanship and long-lasting burn time of this candle make it a must-have for any fragrance enthusiast.
Overall, November 2023 has been a month filled with exciting beauty discoveries. From game-changing makeup brushes to innovative hair care products and beyond, these gems have certainly left a lasting impression. Whether you’re looking to elevate your makeup game, give your hair some extra love, or explore new beauty essentials, these recommendations are sure to give you a head start.
I have recently discovered the most amazing hair oil, and I have become absolutely obsessed with it. This oil has completely transformed my hair care routine. Previously, I had never really experimented with hair oiling, but now I can’t imagine my routine without it.
The texture of this oil is incredibly luxurious, and it spreads effortlessly throughout my hair. I love to apply it generously, starting from my scalp all the way to the roots. Then, I simply tie my hair up in a bun and let the oil work its magic. Some people even sleep with a generous amount of oil in their hair, but personally, I prefer to let it sit for a day and then wash it off.
The Scalp Scrub:
One product that has truly blown me away is the scalp scrub that I have been using alongside the hair oil. This scalp scrub is unlike anything I have ever tried before. It contains salt granules, which adds a unique element to the overall experience.
When I use this scalp scrub, I can instantly feel the difference. The salty granules gently exfoliate my scalp, leaving it feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The best part is that it foams up when it comes into contact with water, creating a truly special and invigorating shower experience. Not only does it work wonders for my scalp, but it also smells absolutely divine.
While the oil and scalp scrub have stolen the show for me, I must mention the serum that completes this incredible hair care treatment. This serum is truly beautiful and adds the perfect finishing touch to my hair routine.
The serum has a lightweight consistency that effortlessly absorbs into my hair. It provides deep nourishment and leaves my locks feeling silky smooth. Although I do not use the serum as frequently as the oil and scalp scrub, it still plays a vital role in enhancing the overall health and appearance of my hair.
The combination of this amazing oil, scalp scrub, and serum has revolutionized my hair care routine. These products have truly impressed me with their effectiveness and unique features. If you are looking to elevate your hair care regimen, I highly recommend giving these products a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Rose Scented Hair Product
There is a rose-scented hair product that stands out from the rest. Unlike the typical grandmotherly rose scent, this product offers a fresh and sophisticated aroma. It is believed to contain natural rose oils, which contribute to its unique fragrance. Although I am not an expert in hair care, I can confidently say that both myself and my husband have been absolutely loving this product.
The Ultimate Scalp Scrub
When it comes to scalp scrubs, I have tried various options assuming they were all created equal. However, I was proven wrong when I discovered a superior scalp scrub that blew me away. This is, without a doubt, the best scalp scrubber I have ever come across in my life. The experience it provides in the shower is unparalleled, especially when paired with the scalp scrub itself. When rinsing it out, the feeling is incredibly pleasant, leaving your hair and scalp feeling exceptionally clean. The addition of massage with this scrubber takes it to another level, offering a spa-like experience for your hair. Moreover, the inclusion of oil in the product enhances its overall beauty. I even use a small amount of this on my dry hair after showering, particularly on the dry ends. However, if you don’t struggle with dry hair, the serum they have might be a better option for you. Regardless, I am extremely obsessed with this product and applaud Lauren for creating something so remarkable.
A Unique and Beautiful Experience
Everything included in this makeup and more collection is truly exceptional. The combination of scents, textures, and overall performance makes it stand out from anything I have seen before. The attention to detail and quality of these products is truly commendable. I find myself completely infatuated with everything in this collection. It is evident that a lot of thought and innovation has gone into creating such a unique range of items. From the rose-scented product to the remarkable scalp scrub, each component contributes to an overall beautiful and satisfying experience.
