November Favorites

I didn’t want to go overboard so I tried to keep it under 10—here are my favorites for this month! ❤ For lip products, I have three favorites this month, all of which offer a good range in terms of price.

What I like about this method, is that it’s pretty klutz-proof. I am not good at keeping …
