August Favourites

August Favourites_01

I never planned on writing a favourites post for August but I thought what the heck there was quite a few products I’ve enjoyed this month some being old favourites I started using again and some new products I tried out during the month that I ended up really liking.

August has been such a crazy month from me being sick with a terrible blog bug which left me gringing in bed totally out of it for 2 weeks! 2 weeks of no work,  of no blogging…  2 weeks of nothing just trying to recover.  Also we managed to go on holiday just before Justin and I both got ill well at least for that! I’ve  also been battling with trying to get inspired with blogging being extremely busy at work trying to juggle  a full time job and a blog has really been testing me,  but blogging has been the only outlet for me to express myself and a true passion of mine.

Now that I got that off my chest,  let me get to the point of my August favourites post.  This month I haven’t been using that many new products I have been trying to spend less on makeup I simply don’t need.

August Favourites_06

Essence Cosmetics All I Need Concealer Palette – As you guys can see this concealer palette has been loved, I have literally been using the green and pink concealer everyday the green to cover the redness around my nose area and the pink under my eyes to help make those dark circles less visible.

Catrice Camouflage Cream Concealer – Another concealer I’ve been using to death this month has been my Catrice Cosmetics concealer I remembered why I loved it so much.  Because the shade is too light for me purchasing it online and not knowing the true shade I use this concealer on my brow bone to highlighter and cover up in visible hairs by my eyebrows.  I love the think creamy formula I definitely plan on getting a darker shade for under my eye area.

August Favourites_03

Essence Stay All Day Translucent Fixing Powder – Being someone with dry skin I never imagine myself using any kind of powders on my face,  however I have really been enjoying the Essence translucent powder to set my concealer I find that it makes it last longer and my t-zone has been getting a bit oily at the moment which is out of the ordinary for me. This is also great for baking which is something I would never be able to do because my eye area is just the driest part of my face.

LA Girl Pro BB Cream –  I am almost done with my tube of LA Girl BB Cream,  this has been my every day base all through August it does have a liquid consistency but great for those days when you don’t want to cake on the foundation.  I will definitely be purchasing another for Summer this will be perfect for those hot days,  the coverage is decent and feels as if you not wearing anything so I’d say it’s definitely light weight.

August Favourites_05

Kardashian Beauty Cubana Bronzer –  I fell back in love with this bronzer in August! I just love the way it looks, and because I have been super lazy to apply blush I only use this bronzer to add some life to my face and because of the ombre of shades mixed together it gives a depth look and a natural bronzed looks not even needing to add blush, also how gorgeous is this packaging?

August Favourites_04

The Body Shop Vitamin E Day Cream –  I have been obsessed with The Body Shop Vitamin E range, and the most used has to be their day cream I apply this every morning and my skin is hydrated all through the day. I am going to have to restock on this as well I bought two small sample sizes to try out before buying the normal size.

Pearl Drops Instant Plus –  I received this in a press drop during August and after using it for about 2 or so weeks this has been really giving me great results. My teeth do appear more whiter then before use. I am really impressed with this as I have used whitening toothpastes before which didn’t help me at all.

So there you have it guys products I’ve been really loving in August.  What has been your favourite products anything great I need to try?
