Wow, these monthly favourites seem to come around really quickly. You’ll probably notice some familiar items in this one, with a couple of new additions I may not have mentioned previously. Some of these items have become daily staples that I swear by – my regular readers will know which products I’m talking about. So, here they are…
Grown Alchemist Acai-berry and Borago facial moisturiser: My favourite moisturiser of all time. This stuff never disappoints. Love this stuff and despite the price (it’s a little hefty in my opinion) it’s well worth it. This is the only matte moisturiser that works for me.
L’Oreal Color Riche nailpolish (Spicy Orange): I’ve really been loving warm orange based reds for nails – sadly I can’t say the same for my lips (orange-red lippies just don’t work on me). While I don’t have the best nails, this is the colour I’ve been gravitating toward when they’ve been long enough to polish. Love this colour and the brush is fantastic. This is my second bottle.
Chanel Les beige (#30): Put simply, this is perfection in a compact – I’ve enjoyed using this so much over the past month and I’ve barely touched my Rimmel Stay Matte powder since I got this. Truth be told, it was never a favourite, this however is.
Nars Lipstick ( Manhunt): I love this lipstick. The texture is smooth, the formula is super conditioning and the poppy red colour is just delicious – what’s not to love? It’s classified as a sheer lipstick but the colour payoff is amazing and definitely buildable.
Hydraluron: I’ve mentioned my love for Hydraluron so many times on this blog so It’s no surprise it features in my August Favourites. I’ve literally used it every day over the month of August.
Revlon Colourstay Smoky Shadow Stick: This is my no fuss instant eye makeup saviour. I use the lighter champagne-pink shade all over my lid and the darker brown to line my upper and lower lash-lines. It’s super convenient when you’re in a rush, like I am most mornings.
Diorskin Nude BB Cream: Another product I’ve featured on this here blog. Love the texture, scent, colour…. what more can I say.
Real techniques Duo-fibre contour brush: I’ve been enjoying this brush for a somewhat unusual reason. Funnily enough I’ve actually been using it to blend in my Nars Manhunt lipstick onto my cheeks. I don’t profess to be the first person to ever do this, but it works so well and looks amazing when paired with the lipstick.
Over to you lovely readers… what were some of your August beauty favourites?
