August 2015 Beauty Favourites! ♥

Hey beaut's! 

I haven't done a beauty or non beauty monthly favourites in soooooo long, I used to do them every month without fail and for some reason I just forgot all about them, but fear not the favourites posts are now making a comeback he he. I cant believe how quick this year is going, Autumn/Winter are now approaching and I cant blooming wait he he! Anywhoo onto what I've been loving this month beauty wise!

My first favourite this month is my Urban Decay Naked Palette. I've had my palette for years, it was one of the very first high end makeup items I ever owned and I'm still in absolute love with it years later. 

Next is my trusty Real Techniques Sculpting Brush! I actually now own two of these brushes because I love them so much, I use one for applying my foundation everyday and the other I use to contour with and it works amazingly well both ways. I do have a review HERE if you'd like to read my thoughts in full but overall it's an amazing brush with so many uses.

The Bourjois 1 Seconde Mascara is literally my holy grail mascara, I tried it back in April and have been hooked ever since. The volume, length and lift it gives is incredible all with just about two strokes of the brush, so theres no faffing around with building up coats of the mascara for volume or length it's just instantly there which I love, and theres not a single clump in sight.

The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat is quite new to me but I flipping love it! The tiny light particles and mineral extracts within the formula really help to create light, luminosity and radiance to all of the places on the face that need it. I found that on me it literally banishes the dark shadows underneath my eyes and works perfectly underneath my concealer, adds a gorgeous but subtle highlight to my cheekbones, brow bone and down the nose, and it can really trick the eye when used around the contours of the lips because it can make them appear fuller and more pouty which I really like when I'm wearing lipstick.

The little Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara is next on my list of favourites this month, the cute wand honestly gets to every single tiny bottom lash and makes my lower lash line appear a lot fuller, it has honestly found lower lashes that I didn't know existed ha ha. As well as being fantastic for those lower lashes it's also great at getting those hard to reach inner corner lashes on my top lash line, not to mention it's staying power is incredible, it literally doesn't transfer, move or flake all day, I've fallen in love with this little cutie.

Next is my favourite drugstore lipstick ever the L’Oreal Color Riche Lipstick in Fuchsia Declaration - a deep Satin Fuchsia Pink, I've been wearing this most days over the last few months and I am just obsessed with the formulation. Fuchsia Declaration is super pigmented and contains plant-based oils to care for the lips leaving them feeling moisturised the entire time. It also has a run-off prevention agent that holds the lipstick in place for smudge-proof wear, arhhh it's the best lipstick ever!

I've started to have more baths than showers recently and have been using up all of my left over Lush goodies and I just had to feature my Comforter Bubble Bar. The Comforter is one of my all time favourites from lush, you get sooooo many uses out of it because you only need the smallest piece crumbled into your bath to get pretty pink water and lots of bubbles and it smells divine.

 I'm a massive VO5 fan and recently tried their Nourish My Shine Bedazzling Oil Heat Protector and it's amazing, it not only protects your hair from heat but leaves my hair feeling soft, silky, nourished and totally gorgeous. Love that stuff!

My last beauty favourite this month ( I know theres been so many he he) is the Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm, I'm actually on my second tub of this stuff and it's absolutely amazing! You use the balm with a muslin cloth and it literally melts all your makeup away and give your skin a thorougher cleanse whilst also moisterising. I do have a review coming up soon so keep your eyes peeled! 

What have you been loving this month beaut's?? I'd love to know.

  3. I love the RT brush as well, only purchased it last month but it's so perfect for contouring. I really want to try the Loreal lipsticks, I've heard good things from several bloggers now!
    Can't wait for your Emma Hardie review, I still can't decide if it's worth the money or not so hopefully it'll make my mind up.
