Ok, so how is it now September? How have we only got 4 months left of the year?
August for me was an exciting month beauty wise. I fell in love with so many products and I finally have my mojo back when it comes to trying new products!
Jeffree Star Thirsty Palette
This 15 pan eyeshadow palette is what dreams are made of. The colours are stunning, the formula is stunning in overall it’s just STUNNING! I have been reaching for this palette so much over the past month and I have created some beautiful looks using it. My favourite shades are Taste Buds, Kumquat, Filthy Rich, Subtle and Splash.
IT Cosmetics Illimunitation CC Cream
This is my new best friend. I love a glowy base and boy this makes me glow! The formal and coverage is great and it evens out my skin tone really well. It’s so easy to apply with a damp beauty blender and it doesn’t look like anything on the skin. As we are now approaching Autumn I may pick up the original version or the new matte one when it launches.
Too Faced Concealer
This concealer is magic! It covers absolutely everything but it looks like I’m wearing nothing, I just don’t get it?! It applies like a dream and lasts all day on my skin. I’m really tempted to pick a darker shade up for contouring/bronzing.
Wet n Wild Highlighter in Precious Petals
Holy moly this highlight is LIFE! The shade is perfect and honestly, I just cannot get enough of it. A little goes a long way and it looks flawless all day. I have noticed Beauty Bay has another shade so I think I’m going to pick that up too.
Caudalie Beauty Elixir
The product that I definitely didn’t need but I now need, do you get what I mean? I don’t even know if this product does anything but I love the smell and how it makes my skin feel. I’ve been using this as part of my nighttime routine and it’s been a welcomed addition.
Marc Jacobs Contour Palette
I’ve owned this for a while now and never really reached for it before. I picked this up one-day last month and I haven’t looked back since. I apply the contour shade over my cream contour to set and it just looks amazing. Of course, it being Marc Jacobs it’s a little pricey but the pans are so huge I’m hoping it will last forever.
Benefit Brow Contour Pro
I ordered this on a whim without looking at any reviews and I was a bit sceptical but as you can tell it’s made it to my favourites and I love it. The mixture of the light and dark shades are perfect for my brows. The definer and highlight are good too but I don’t use these every time I do my brows. The only downside is that you have no way of telling how much product is left. I’m scared it’s going to run out mid-brow!
NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm
The packaging alone sold this to me I just wanted a rose gold pretty lip product. I suffer from dry lips quite a lot so I always like to use something that’s a bit moisturising with some colour. This is perfect for me. It gives my lips a lovely pink tinge but doesn’t dry them out.
Buxom Plumpline Lip Liner
I own this lip liner in 2 shades and both have become a firm favourite. I own Stealth which is a standard pinky nude and Hush Hush which has more of a berry tone to it. I don’t know how these work but they definitely do make your lips look fuller. As I said above I have dry lips so I was worried these would dry my lips out even more but they don’t which is amazing. I’ve been paring both with my NARS lip glow for an easy every day look.
There we have it all of the products I was loving throughout the month of August. I would love to know what your favourites were.
