Now that it’s officially November – yes, we’ll let you pause and reflect on the fact that somehow, October flew by – it’s time to not only start our holiday shopping, but also start figuring out what products are worth spending our precious dollars on. So, before you have to start scraping and saving to spend all of your hard earned cash on everyone else, clearly you should spend a little bit of it on yourself. With all of the new beauty products launching (for gifting purchases, clearly, but like we said – it’s time to be selfish) it’s not easy to pick and choose just a few to cash in on. And yes, we said just a few – you can’t go blowing all of your money, you do need to buy some gifts eventually!
In order to make your beauty shopping trip not only fun, but also thrifty, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite new product releases this month. There are fabulous new lipsticks to get you though the holiday parties (plus dry shampoos for the days after) new scents and more. Let us know which ones you’ll be adding to your list in the comments below!
