"I want to bathe in this perfume": 18 beauty products we're loving sick this month.

Mamamia’s beauty roundup series is your monthly look at the beauty products our team are loving - from the latest launches in skincare, hair and makeup to the old faves we've fallen for all over again.

For more beauty roundups, head to our hub page here.

Last month came and went in the blink of an eye, and it's already that time again: our monthly beauty roundup.

During November, we tried plenty of new (and new to us) skincare, makeup, haircare and body care products that we need to tell you all about right now.

PSA: Our Senior Beauty Writer tried the lube makeup trick. Here are the results.

Here you'll find reviews of the best beauty products that launched in November, as well as the products we’ve rediscovered and fallen back in love with. And many of them are perfect for Christmas presents.

Schwarzkopf Got2b Glued Gel, $9.99.

"I use this hair gel... on my eyebrows. I saw it on TikTok, so of course, I had to try it. I've never had such feathery brows before and they stayed in place all day!" - Eleanor Katelaris, Social Media Producer.

Roemy Solstice, $179.

"I want to bathe in this perfume - I love the scent so much. The best way to describe it is it's like a warm summer's night. It's floral - it includes notes of gardenia and jasmine - but it's also warm and strong as it has base notes of amber and musk. It lasts on the skin for ages and it's non-toxic, hypoallergenic, vegan, cruelty-free, and made here in Australia." - Charlotte Begg, Lifestyle Writer.

Australian Glow Hydrating Self Tanning Drops, $24.99.

"I'm so here for the tanning drop revolution! I love how you can add a few drops to your serum and control the level of tan you achieve, I pop this on before bed once or twice a week to nab a natural-looking glow." - Tamara Davis, Head of Lifestyle and co-host of What Are You Wearing?.

Laneige Perfect Renew Youth Serum, $89.

"I tried this serum on a whim when I'd run out of another one I had been loving, and oh. my. god. I'm obsessed. My skin is noticeably plumper and juicier, and a little bit goes a long way." - Lucy Neville, Production Manager and co-host of The Undone.

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Kit, $75.50.

"I'm not much of a lippy girl but the Charlotte Tilbury lip liner and lipstick combo in Pillow Talk is pretty fab! It's the perfect colour for when you want a little something but not too much." - Talia Phillips, Strategy Manager.

Emma Lewisham Supernatural 72-Hour Crème, $135. 

"This moisturiser locks in all of the moisture before I tuck into bed, and my skin in the morning looks hydrated and refreshed. I've started using it in the morning too because I can't get enough of the dewy results." - Lucy Neville, Production Manager and co-host of The Undone.

Ilia Blue Light Filter Protect + Set Mist, $54.

"After running out of my go-to setting spray I tried this, and I've fallen in love. It has a semi-matte finish (not too dewy which is great for my oily skin) keeps my makeup in place ALL DAY and protects it against blue light and pollution which is something I haven't seen in setting sprays before. Big fan." - Charlotte Begg, Lifestyle Writer.

Bespoke Dream Cream, $179.

"Please meet my new favourite moisturiser. Perfect for all skin types (yep - even sensitive, bitchy skin) this true all-rounder tackles the signs of skin ageing, sun damage, pigmentation, acne and congestion. I know, I’m exhausted just writing it. Featuring DNA repair enzymes, bakuchiol, niacinamide and antioxidants, Dream Cream is just the ticket for hydrated, plump, radiant skin (the glow is next level). While I like to use it at night, you can also use it in the AM - just remember your SPF!" - Erin Docherty, Senior Beauty Writer and co-host of You Beauty.

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser, $17.95.

"I'm loving this cleanser from Lush. It’s so easy to use - just apply it onto the face and then remove it with a damp cloth. It was such a lifesaver when I took a trip to the mountains last weekend!" - Marian Siddayao, Audience Development Assistant.

Naked Sundays Glow + Go Hydrating Lip Oil SPF50+, $29.95.

"Excuse me while I take this little guy everywhere with me. Naked Sundays has just come out with a lip oil and it’s SPF50+ which makes it the first of its kind. The non-sticky formula’s loaded with antioxidants and gives lips the cutest pinky pearly shine, too." - Tamara Davis, Head of Lifestyle and co-host of What Are You Wearing?.

Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Hair Styling Spray, $57.

"It's La Nina's world and we're just living in it. So, when I saw that this can help tame frizz, I spritzed like it was going out of style. It requires heat to activate the product, so you spray it in before a blow-dry and my frizzy, humidity reactant hair is noticeably smoother and basically, has taken a chill pill. Take that Nina." - Lucy Neville, Production Manager and co-host of The Undone.

Beaute Pacifique Defy Damage Skin Repair Serum, $80.

"A lightweight, serum-in-lotion formula, Beaute Pacifique Defy Damage Skin Repair Serum features a range of potent ingredients, such as vitamin A and vitamin E, It does it all - helps fight wrinkles and sun damage, while smoothing the texture and tone of the skin, all without irritation. What a freak." - Erin Docherty, Senior Beauty Writer and co-host of You Beauty.

Coco & Eve Super Nourishing Coconut and Fig Hair Masque, $57.90.

"After reading so many rave reviews about this hair mask I had to try it for myself. And my goodness, I now get what everyone was talking about. It’s thick, hydrating and left my hair looking seriously shiny. Love." - Charlotte Begg, Lifestyle Writer.

Innisfree Green Tea Holiday Set, $76.

"I had heard really good things about Korean Skincare and these products definitely lived up to the hype. The cleanser is just a gorgeous feeling on my face and leaves it so fresh and soft." - Cathy O'Brien, Content Producer.

Loving Tan Deluxe Bronzing Mousse - Dark, $34.95.

"Because I'm making a conscious effort to not get a real tan this summer (and there's a pretty low chance I'll be able to because of La Nina) I'm fake tanning a fair bit right now, and this one has become my go-to. It's not too green or orange and lasts a good week. Over the weekend I got SO many compliments about how real it looked, and that's when you know it's a keeper." - Charlotte Begg, Lifestyle Writer.

Dr Naomi Skin Catfish, $89.

"I've talked about this before, but it's honestly just a really good time for your under eyes. It smooths and blurs fine lines around your eyes, while brightening dark circles. Plus, how cool is the packaging?!" - Erin Docherty, Senior Beauty Writer and co-host of You Beauty.

Biossance Squalane + Elderberry Jelly Cleanser, $48.

"Okay... well as you can see this is VERY well-loved. This is my go-to cleanser for removing makeup at the moment. The jelly melts off even the heaviest of eye makeups, and my skin doesn't feel stripped afterwards, just nourished and soft." - Lucy Neville, Production Manager and co-host of The Undone.
