My August Favourites

Monday, 5 September 2011

I am a little late with my favourite's for the month of August but with it being Eid and then going away for a few days, I didn't get much of an opportunity to sit down and put a post up. As you are probably aware, I have been really busy in the last few months but I will be posting a lot more often from next week. I am really looking forward to it because there have been so many occasions when I have wanted to post but just did not have the time!

So, I have a few favourites for August- some of which are new. The pictures aren't great because I was at the hotel in Wales when I took these.
1. Garnier BB Cream

 This BB Cream has had so much hype in the last month or so. I have been meaning to try a BB cream out for some time now and because this was easily accessible, I picked it up. I am really glad that I did! I don't have really bad skin thankfully which means that I can usually get away with a light-medium coverage foundation and a little concealer. This mainly just evens out my skin and has very light coverage. It is perfect for me to wear on an every day basis.

2. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick in Beige Trusque (5)

 This is the first (very) expensive lipstick I have ever bought. I actually had my eye on this for a long time and kept changing my mind. I, addict that I am, couldn't help it in the end and bought it! I am really glad I checked out swatches beforehand because I love this lipstick! It is smooth and moisturising. It lasts longer on my lips than most lipsticks. The shade is gorgeous for my skin tone too.

3. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Pink Afterglow

 I actually neglected this lipgloss for the longest time. I always thought it would be too sparkly but now it has become one of my favourites. It is not sticky, the colour is gorgeous and it lasts so long! I would definitely pick this over a higher end lip gloss, especially MAC ones, which I really don't like much!

4. NARS Blush in Deepthroat

  This has featured in many of my favourites. A definite must have in my opinion! I always wear this blush when I don't know what else to wear, it goes so well with almost any look and always gives a lovely glow to the skin.

5. Eyeko Graffiti Eyeliner Pen in Black

 This liner I had kept in my drawer and it was definitely unloved. I have been using my MAC Fluidline for almost a year now and love it. This was a product that I wanted to finish because I knew it would just sit there otherwise. I underestimated this liner though, I like the pigmentation, the ease of use and the longevity of it is really good. For a beginner, this liner is great to use.

I am looking forward to the next month, transitioning into Autumn is one of my favourite times of the year.

What have you been liking this month?

  1. great favs :) what shade did you buy in the bb cream if you dont mind me asking? Okay I need to buy deepthroat asap I just bought nars madly and LOVE it ! xx

  2. I totally agree, Deep Throat is gorgeous!YSL lipstick looks worth giving a try, hmmmm... Why does it all cost so much!

  3. I bought the one in light because I thought medium was too dark for me. I'm an NW30 and it matches perfectly.

    I agree, you do need Deepthroat, it is gorgeous! I've started using Dallas as a blush by the way, I can't believe that it actually works!

  4. Ladymoonlight, I know, a lipstick that expensive isn't something I could just buy on a whim.. but I do love it!

  5. Loving your favourites, I'm obsessed with the BB cream it's fab.


  6. hi! i love your picks. i love nars blushes, but i have never seen deepthroat in person, i was thinking of getting it actually! but i couldn't decide between it and madly.
