Mani Monday | Essie Mink Muffs

Happy Monday! Can't believe we are already half way through November. Is it just me, or do the last couple months of the year fly by?!

For today's manicure, I used Essie Mink Muffs. It is a beautiful neutral medium brown polish. Essie describes it as a "smoky plush taupe". I've been waiting a while to find a color such as this. Finally, I found it last week! This is beautiful for fall and it reminds me of coziness.

Cozy Fall/Winter Makeup

If you don't already know, I love the fall season. I'm also starting to appreciate winter a bit more. Living in Florida, we don't get the strong winter cold, but what we get, I enjoy. Since I'm enjoying this season, I wanted to show you all my "cozy fall/winter makeup". This makeup reminds me of getting into a soft, warm sweater, grabbing a mug of coffee or tea, and cuddling up either on your own or with a loved one.

Watch the video below to see how I did this look!

Kate Somerville ExfoliKate

I just love the way scrubs make my skin feel. I purchased a Sephora kit that included a 0.5 fl oz size of the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate, and I must say, I fell in love. It is pricey, coming in at $22 for the size I have, but I think it is definitely worth it. This scrub is supposed to work both physically and enzymatically to reveal healthy, glowing skin. The enzymes that are in this scrub are from papaya, pineapple, and pumpkin.

The scrub is a dark hunter green color, and smells almost like ground ginger. I personally like the scent, but some may find it too strong. I usually use no more than a pea-sized amount. The granules are finely milled and feel great against my skin. Let me give a fair warning: it can sting and tingle the skin for a bit, but it goes away.

I usually work it into my clean skin and exfoliate for 30 seconds, then I let it sit on top of my skin for 1-2 minutes. After that, I rinse and my skin feels so smooth.

I think that is definitely worth the price!

Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix | Holiday 2014 Set

I've been waiting quite a while for a Bite Beauty holiday set to come out! The Bite Beauty Best Bite Remix holiday set just came out a few days ago. It is very reminiscent to last year's holiday set. It retails for $25 and can be found at Sephora. It features four deluxe high pigment pencils, one of which is a repeat from last year (Rhubarb) and debuts two new shades.
I love the packaging because it looks just like an Altoid mints tin. The tin is red and has a matte rubberized feel, similar to Nars packaging. The "B" is also embossed on top.
As I mentioned above, the tin looks just like the Altoid mints tin and it even has the paper! How cute is that?
These pencils definitely have high pigmentation and they apply so smooth. On the lips, they feel creamy and my lips do not get dry.
L-R: Sable, Rhubarb, Winterberry, Pomegranate
Sable is a new shade and is described as a nude, although I see it as a pink nude. Rhubarb is in the permanent collection and is described as a plum rose. (I accidentally made a typo on the picture above and spelled it wrong. Didn't notice till after I posted.) Winterberry is also a new shade and is described as a festive raspberry red. Pomegranate is part of the permanent collection and is described as a rose berry. However, this appears more of a rich holiday red.
