Yes, Oh Yas! November 2018

Hey, ya’ll!

November’s theme was “Girls Can!” Keep reading to see what was inside.

*Note: prices listed as photo captions are what I found on the respective product websites. Retail values listed below my descriptions are what was listed by Yes, Oh Yas!

Unicorn Tears Liquid Highlighter

from Beauty Creations

$14.99 for set of 6; Beauty Creations

To be honest, I’ve never used a liquid highlighter like this before. This one was really pretty; I just applied a couple of drops to each cheekbone and blended. I’m still partial to a regular powder or pressed powder highlighter, but it’s always good to try new things!

Retail Value: $17

Brow Lift Brow Highlighting Pencil

from Sormé Cosmetics

$9.58; Amazon

I get a little annoyed when a Sorm&#233 product is included because they don’t have their own website that you can buy from. I was able to find it on Amazon for much cheaper than Yes, Oh Yas! claimed. It’s similar to the Chella brow pencil I got a couple of months ago; its creamy formula blends really nicely. I don’t really prefer one over the other.

Retail Value: $22

BK40 Deluxe Badger Oval Shadow Brush

from Crown Brushes

I’m not usually a fan of natural bristle brushes; I definitely don’t prefer them. I have to admit, though, that this one feels really nice and does a great job of applying eyeshadow with no fallout. Its size and shape lend well to doing an all-over color when I’m running late in the morning, but it’s still small enough to do some eye contouring, as well. It’s a very affordable price point, so if natural bristles aren’t a deal-breaker for you, I’d certainly recommend it.

Retail Value: $19

Brilliant Highlighter in “Swirling Pearl”

from Mirabella Beauty

This highlighter and I didn’t start off so well. When I took it out of the mailer envelope, it had completely detached from the pan but at least managed to stay intact:

It’s a gorgeous color, but between YoY and ipsy, I feel like I’ve been getting highlighter overload lately. I’m also disappointed to say that I contacted Yes, Oh Yas! after opening it, and I haven’t gotten any response at all. 😦 Anyway, this highlighter is currently on sale for $10, so get on it!

Retail Value: $42

Lip Contour Palette

from Aesthetica

$24.99; Aesthetica

For lippie lovers, this is like Christmas–6 lip colors, 4 lip liners, and a lip brush! Lips aren’t my thing. I tend to stick with a neutral liquid lip that will stay most of the day. If I had to pick just one makeup item to wear, it would probably be my pressed powder foundation or liquid eyeliner. (Sunscreen is skincare, so it doesn’t count. 🙂 ) I swatched these colors, and they didn’t seem to be long-wear, plus I didn’t see myself carrying this palette around for touch-ups, so I gave it to my friend Danielle, who I know will give it a good home. She’s the reigning queen of lipsticks. ❤

Retail Value: $45

Total Value: $145*

*If you go by the website prices, the total comes out to $82.06 (I didn’t use sale prices, and I divided the liquid highlighter price by 6, since it’s normally a set of 6.) For $14.99 + shipping that’s still a heck of a deal!
