November Beauty Haul and Empties

 photo Titleslide_zps1bb5bfad.jpg

Time again for me to go through my bags and share what new products I got and what I have run out of. I am sharing my honest opinions on these. Whether I liked them or not and if they worked for me. There are a couple of returning items that you probably see every month, but there are some new things too. Even a new holy grail item! Exciting right?

Empties

Jergens Natural Glow
I bought a backup bottle of this last month, it is a continuous item in my beauty routine.

Mask of Magnaminty
It was a sad day when I ran out of this. I really need to go pick up more, my face is starting to dry out from the weather and this is exactly what I need. I love this face mask!

Psssst! Dry Shampoo
I always have one on backup, but I feel like I am constantly running low or out of this magic worker.

Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleaner
I didn't see a crazy improvement in my skin from this so I will be moving on and trying something new. Can't always win.

Ed Hardy for Women
I still love this scent, and the bottle lasted forever. However I am probably not going to repurchase. Time to change it up a bit.

Benefit They're Real! Mascara
I ran out, but I had like two tubes on backup. Can you tell I like this mascara? #winning

Stila eyeliner
I decided to try something new when this ran out, and unfortunately I am not as happy with it. Once I run out of my current eyeliner I will be buying this again for sure. I just can't find anything that beats it for me.

Psssst! Dry Shampoo
I think I buy at least one bottle a month, this is a holy grail item for me. You will get tired of seeing it at some point I am sure.

Loreal Lock It Fine Control Hairspray
I was close to running out of my Big Sexy hairspray and when I went to pick it up from Ulta it was completely gone. This is my go-to backup, but I still love my Big Sexy.

OGX Moroccan Argan Oil
Like my hairspray, I was almost out of my Kenra dry oil so I picked this up to replace it. Haven't tried it yet, but hopefully it will do the trick!

Nivea Extended Moisture Body Lotion
Garnier Blackhead Eliminating Scrub
Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment

These three were all new products I just decided to try. I got the Nivea because it was something different and I wasn't liking my current body lotion. The blackhead scrub was just a new scrub to give a shot. I picked up the Hair Growth Treatment just to see if it worked. It was fairly cheap and I am always looking for ways to get my hair to grow even more.

Paula Dorf Teal Mascara (c/o)
This is a great color, not too bright, but bright enough to add a little flare to a look. (full review coming soon)

Paula Dorf Aztec City Eye Color Palette (c/o)
Again, I will be posting a full review/tutorial on this palette soon, but I am in love with the colors. Great transition shade and a good brown too. The shimmer shades are easy to work with as well.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil - Milk
I haven't used this yet, but my friend Steph uses it all the time in her makeup tutorials. After hearing her say it so much, I figured I should give it a try!

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation
This was another YouTube beauty vlogger inspired pick (wow, that was a mouthful). Tiffany raved about this foundation and after using it a couple of times I see why! After a full day of work and then a pretty good workout I still had really good coverage and only reapplied powder/blotted once at the end of the workday. I love it and it has bumped up to the top of my list of favorite drugstore foundations.

(Not pictured) Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
I love Kat Von D products most of the time. This liner though hasn't started out as a love, more of a like. It just takes a little longer to get a solid color I guess than my Stila one did. I like the liner, and it stays amazingly but I will probably be switching back. This didn't knock out the reigning champ for me. Don't get me wrong, it is a good liner. It just isn't my holy grail.

Makeup by ONE DIRECTION Limited-Edition Beauty Collection (c/o)

I have a full review on these products that will be going live soon, but there are some fun things in these kits!

And that is all for my Beauty Haul for November. It was a pretty well rounded one, I must say.
