November Empties 2014

I haven't done an empties post in ages! I figured since I actually had a lot of empties this month I'd share with you what I finished and if I'd repurchase them.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo - I've already repurchased this quite a few times. I really like this as an acne fighter. I use it twice a day morning and night. I don't feel like it dries my skin out. Repurchased already. 

Queen Helene Mint Julep Facial Scrub -  The scrub was eh for me. It worked but I wasn't wowed, I prefer the face mask of the same flavor instead. Pass.

Mott's It's So Big Mascara- It was a total flop for me. I got this as a replacement for my empty mascara tube from my June Ipsy bag. This did nothing for my lashes. Pass. Link to review. 

Benefit They're Real Mascara I've been repurchasing this mascara since it came out. Holy Grail status for me! Repurchased.  review.

Origins GinZing Gel Moisturizer -  I've been also repurchasing this since I first tried this. This moisturizer often finds it way into my favorites post. review.

These are all my empties this month! What were you sad to use up this month?

Purchased. Gifted.

I recently made a little stop in Sephora to do some Christmas shopping! I also wanted to pick up my Sephora birthday gift. A little set from Makeup forever, mascara and lipstick. 

I can't show a few of the items I bought, I don't want anyone to figure out what I bought them for Christmas!! Mom, I'm talking to you, you snoop!! 

I did also pick up one more item for myself other than my Sephora birthday gift. I had to make a pit stop to check out what Origins had which to my surprise they had a little GinZing mini kit! The kit includes: GinZing eye cream, moisturizer, and scrub cleanser. The GinZing line is my favorite the gel moisturizer has been a favorite of mine for years! This kit I've only seen in the stores and retails for $22 which isn't bad IMO.

I didn't personally pick this up but my fiancĂ© did pick me up the Sephora Favorites Perfume Sampler. He knew I lusting for this for awhile now and picked it up for our half anniversary, just to spoil me a little really. I was eyeing this kit because there was already 2 scents I loved in it, but I also found two new scents I would love to try. I will be doing a full review on this in the future, hopefully.

As for the Birthday mini I wasn't all that impressed with it this year, the lipstick is a brownish shade, and the mascara isn't anything to write home about. I've tried it before and I wasn't a fan. It's all over if you have watery eyes and wear that. 


I'm extremely happy with my recent Sephora goodies! Any recommendations for trying new items?

November's Favorites 2014

Purchased. Sampled. Coupon Code for Readers. 
November's favorites, november favorites, with love from rigby review, #girlscan flamed out mascara, wen bamboo green tea reivew, wen, makeup foever hd foundation, dolce and gabbana rose the one,

I actually been using a few new things! I've tried a few new products, brought back old ones. My busiest semester is finally almost over! I can't wait!! Here's what I've been loving in November! 

Wen Bamboo Green Tea-  I've been using this a lot this month, it promises to help with volume and I have to admit my hair seems thicker and less flat. I love the scent nice and refreshing. Not as moisturizing as say Fig but still cleans my hair the same. I prefer to do a double cleanse. 9 pumps in first wash, 4 pumps for my second wash. 

Red Cherry Lashes #747S-   I find this are great for everyday. I like to wear these to work, they make me look like I have lashes. They remind me of Demis without the thickness. These lashes are nice and light. I get about 10-15 wears out of these if I clean them off after every use right away. I also don't usually add mascara directly to the lashes. 

Origins Ginzing Gel Moisturizer and Eye Cream -  I love the scent of Origins Ginzing line!!! It so nice and refreshing to use both day and night! I love the citrus scent of this duo, keeps my skin nice and hydrated! 

Makeup Forever HD Foundation in 110 Porcline  - I've been taking lots of photos this holiday season and I LOVE this foundation! My skin always looks so flawless! It's medium coverage at most. I only need to use concealer if I have blemish. It never looks cakey either. I use two layers. One with a flat brush then another with a stippling brush followed by a setting powder! 

Covergirl #GirlsCan Flamed Out Mascara - I have to fully admit before I took part in CoverGirl's #GirlsCan movement I've never been a CoverGirl cosmetics fan. Nothing wowed me. I was pretty loyal to maybelline. But this Mascara changed my mind! I love it! It gives lots of volume!! A little length but my lashes look so thick! I love that this actually makes me look like I have lashes! 

Serious Skincar Glycolic Gommage Exfoliating Facial - I ordered with my Birchbox points ages ago. I got it in one of my Birchboxes and loved it! I use it on and off, (not nearly as much as I should). I've been using this once a week to start getting my skin in holiday season shape! My skin feels so fresh after I use it and smooth! 

Dolce and Gabbana Rose the One - This is one of my favorite perfumes. It's a subtle sexy rose scent. They discontinued it and I've been using it a lot lately. I don't want to let it go to waste! 

Last but not least I've been wearing my  "With Love From Rigby" Jorden Headband on the Gold Maze Band all this month. It's been my favorite hair accessory! I wear it with ponytails, and while my hair is down to keep my bangs out of my face. I get countless compliments on it all the time! Right now if you order from With Love From Rigby's etsy shop and use coupon code "beautandbiz"  to receive 20% off your total order good from now until December 10th!!!  Hurry On the 10th is the last day to order for promise before Christmas Shipping!

December WEN TSV!

Sale notice, referral link. 

I am pleased to announce I finally found out hopefully the 1st of more TSV for WEN!!!!

This is the same deal he had running on QVC.com for the last two Decembers. What is the new twist is that you can either pick a 5 pack seasonal, or a classic 5 pack. 

I like that he did the classic 5 pack because it has the favorite 5 core flavors. I think this deal is so worth it as long as you buy it as the TSV. I won't be buying it this year, I'm on a WEN buying ban until I finish up at least half my fig gallon. 

I'm also pleased to share that the WEN winter seasonal scent in Winter White Citrus. I am very curious and I might just break my WEN buying ban just for that if it comes in his 3 pack with the oil and treatment spray. 

Check out my WEN reviews! 
I also purchased the Summer Honey Peach trio seen in my June favorites.  I love the scent  but I feel like my ends are dry after using that and the Summer Mango Coconut.
