Here we are again for another monthly favourites and I feel like I say this every time, but hasn’t this month flown by?! Here are a few things that I have been loving this month, there’s not as many as usual as I feel like I’ve been using a lot of the same make up as in my July favourites and also I have lots of new things to review and try!
Josie Maran – Illuminizer – £19.00
My friend brought this back for me from America after I had seen reviews on youtube raving about it; I have been mixing this in with my foundation and I love the effect that it has. It makes my skin naturally dewy and bright without looking sparkly as the shimmer is very subtle.
Benefit – Gimme Brow – £18.50
I actually got this free sample in a magazine this month, I had never used it before and it’s actually a complete game changer! I have very full brows anyway, so if I’m going for a natural look all I have to do it comb this through them and I’m done!
NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi – £5.50
I find some nude lip colours really hard to wear but I love this shade as it compliments my skin tone. It glides on really easily and isn’t too drying which is perfect.
Tarte – Tartelette in Bloom Palette – £33.00
I hadn’t really tried many Tarte eye products before I purchased this palette but I am completely sold! All of the shades are really buttery and easy to blend and there is a brilliant mixture of both matte and shimmery shades which mean it can be used just as easily for daytime and evening looks.
L’Oreal Sexybalm – £4.99
These have to be my favourite favourite of the month! The sexybalms come in both sheer and bold, both of which are incredible. Even the sheer balms are very pigmented and moisturising as are the bold shades. You have to take your time applying the brighter shades because they can slide around on the lips a lot but after 5 – 10 minutes of them setting in, the colour will literally not budge for hours on end which is amazing for a balm.
River Island – Cat Cap – £16.00
My fashion favourite for this month is this cap, I haven’t taken it off since I got it! I can put it on when I’m wearing the most boring, comfortable, everyday outfit and it gives instant sass!
Marks and Spencer – Honey BBQ Wholegrain Snacks – £2.00
These snacks come in 5 small bags and they taste sooo good! I can kind of convince myself that they are healthy as they’re ‘guilt free snacking’ which is great in my books. I’d definitely recommend you trying them if you haven’t already!
TV Show – How to Get Away with Murder
This is an american tv show on Netflix which is about a group of students training to be lawyers and the trials they have to go through to defend murderers in the court room, whilst their own lives get turned upside down. It has so many twists and turns and it kept me on the edge of my seat right up until the last second.
So these are my monthly favourites, what have yours been for August?
