October and November flew by. Literally. However, we still found time to review some pretty phenomenal products. Skin care, make-up and fabulous accessories — read on!

gradeAtsnovreviewsTwisted Silver: Epic Bracelet, Compass Necklace
Honestly, Twisted Silver brings one epic piece after another. Starting with the Epic bracelet, of course! This ornate bracelet of antiqued brass is big and bold and gets major attention. While it can be layered with something a bit more delicate, it's pretty fabulous on its own. As for the Compass necklace, this is the coolest, simplest necklace you will ever find. The dark blue crystal spins around on an awesome chain and looks good with a plethora of outfits! I love it paired with a simple short necklace. You won't want to take it off. Ever.

gradeB1Kevyn Aucoin: *Volume Mascara
The tinest brush allows for control and precision. This mascara lengthens beautifully, moreso than adding volume. However, it is definitely one coat worthy, which in and of itself is pretty awesome. I also like to layer this mascara over another one of my favorite mascaras. It almost tubes lashes, so it stays put all day long (no flaking, no smudging, no smearing) and feathers off when you wash your face. The brush gets every last lash!

gradeB1sennapaletteSenna Cosmetics: Sultry Eye Shadow Palette
This gorgeous palette contains warm rich browns, soft corals and classic ivories. It looks fabulous on just about anyone. Even though my skin coloring is cool, this warm palette works into my daily routine with ease. It even comes with a booklet showcasing various looks. It comes with three brushes, but I prefer using my own.

Giorgio Armani: Lip Maestro Matte Lacquer
As excited as I was to try this new, advanced lip color, I was sorely disappointed. Not only was it impossible to find a realistic color for me, it went on in such an odd way. It wasn't heavy, but it looked contrived.

gradeB1Giorgio Armani: Maestro Fusion Makeup
Now this is good stuff. Light. Easy. Gorgeous. This sheer color feels more like a tinted moisturizer. It goes on like silk and gives skin a luminous glow. The best part, a little goes a long way.

gradeB1Laura Mercier: Lip Stain in Sugar Violet and Scarlet
This has to be the most hydrating lip stain I've ever tried. This little-goes-a-long-way lip stain comes in a pot that will last forever. The colors are great and you can wear them by themselves or under lip balm or gloss. The satin finish is gorgeous
