November Fab 5!

I can't believe it is December!  This time of year always seems to fly right by me!

Well, here is my first Monthly Fab 5 products for November (not in any specific order).


Lancome Genifique Repair Youth Activating Night Creme
Holy moly, this is the BEST night cream ever!  this was highly recommended by a few other bloggers and i have to say that it absolutely lives up to the hype!  It applies so nicely (a little goes a long way) and it absorbs quickly into you skin so you don't have lotion/cream residue on your pillow.   When i wake up in the morning my skin is glowing and soft... I can't stop touching my face!  The only down side is the price.. It's quite expensive.....


Laura Mercier Brightening Powder
ok i'm not even kidding, if u have problems with your under eye make up caking up, you need to try this powder.  It's like magic fairy dust!   I used to just apply my concealer and then use my face powder to set it but by mid day all of the make up creases and cakes up - booooo!  This finely milled white powder applies on smoothly and will NOT cake or crease your concealer at all! I've tried this powder with several different concealers and it worked for all of them! 


Cure Natural Aqua Gel
ok so this "exfoliator" is suppose to be Japan's best seller... every 4 second (or something ridiculous like that) 1 bottle is sold... so far i've been liking it... it's a gel like consistency you rub all over your clean dry face... watch all of your dead skin cells fall off. it's really gross but so cool at the same time... my face feels baby butt soft after using this.  The only down side is that it's not sold in the US market so you have to purchase online and pay for shipping. boo!


Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Serum
Another asian skincare.  Ok, let me just tell you how much i love serums.. I have oily combination skin but during the colder seasons i get a lot more dry patches.  This used under my morning moisturizer keeps my face hydrated all day long... My make up doesn't look cakey or dry.  This item also smells nicely.. i'm very sensitive on the way things smell and i often times prefer unscented, but the rose smell of this serum doesn't bother or irritate my skin..  This again is not sold  in stores and can only be purchased online. 


Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart
I like this new limited edition lipstick.. it's a lot more moisturizing than a regular lipstick but not as hydrating as a balm or chap stick (although some ppl will disagree)... i find that the moisture will disappear within 1 1/2 hour and i will have to reapply... but i don't mind it b/c i really like the tint.. i've always wanted to be bold and wear a true red on my lip but i feel like it's a little too overwhelming.. this was a perfect 'pre req' into different reds.  It's a sheer tone red yet very pigmented without the alarming effect. 

i would LOVE to know what some of your favorite products have been for the month of November.. please share!!!
