Random November Favorites

Last month I tried a couple of new items and I want to share what I discovered with you. One item was a new purchase. One item was an exciting new discovery. Two items are old favorites.

So, on to Random November Favorites.

This first exciting, new discovery has been around for a bit. But, I just recently discovered this website, below, to which I am now addicted. 

A couple of weeks ago I purchased my Plum Paper Planner from PlumPaperDesigns store on Etsy. This, of course, lead me down a rabbit hole to discover stores that sell supplies for said planner. Which then leads to stores that sell clothing, socks, gloves, jewelry, and... I digress. Yes addicted.

My new purchase item was the Bare Necessities Matte 2 pallet from Silk Naturals. Silk Naturals philosophy-

Our philosophy is that makeup should be fun. Good makeup, made with great ingredients, sold with integrity and kindness is fun. Make up that does what the description says, that lasts all day, lip glosses that taste great, and concealers that make you look like you were born flawless- is fun.  Overpriced, over-hyped, bad makeup made with junky ingredients isn't fun- so we really go out of our way to make sure that it's all fun, and that you love being our customers.

I have wanted to try the Urban Decay Naked pallets. However, Urban Decay is not a cruelty free product. So, when I finally hit pan on my eye shadows, I ordered the Matte 2 pallet. This product sells for $22.50.

The eye shadows are sold in loose powders in separate jars.

These are fantastic neutrals that are great for mixing and matching. They are easily blended. I have been using them for about a week now, and I am extremely satisfied. The colors last all day without any creasing. Even without a primer. The product is sold in a small black bag. 

As an extra bonus for my purchase, I received a set of false eyelashes and a sample size of Reckless eye shadow.

I am not compensated for this product. I want to share companies that are cruelty free.

This next product I discovered this summer.

Yes, Iced Coffee. My husband and I stopped by a coffee shop, ordered the iced coffee and we were hooked. I use this product as a creamer in my coffee or drink it straight from a glass when that 3:00 "sluggishness" sets in. 

My last monthly favorite are my Kiss glue on nails.

These glue on nails do not chip and come in a variety of lengths and sizes to fit your nail beds. 

Apply with glue to a clean nail and they last for up to a week. 

This kit sells from $5.99 to $6.99. They are sold at most large retail stores. 

The glue on nails did stay on my nail beds for a full week. Some of them actually stayed on for a longer period of time.

The nails are just a fun little beauty item that is not expensive to purchase and maintain. 

I did research on the Kiss company and to the best of my knowledge, Kiss is a cruelty free company. They are listed on the PETA website as being cruelty free. I did not see any mention of them on the Leaping Bunny website though. Please let me know if you have any information about this company.

Now to you-

Please share with us in the comments below some of your favorite items from last month.
