August Beauty Favourites!

This month has gone so fast I had to really think what products i've been loving recently. When the weather is really hot I don't want to wear that much makeup plus i've been decorating the spare room/office in our house so i've been using a paint brush more than my buffing brush lately!
August Beauty Favourites!
Urban Fudge Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Hairspray
I'm not normally that into haircare but when I find a product I like I stick to it. I think I may have found my new favourite hairspray in the Urban Fudge Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Hairspray as it smells so amazing, has a good hold yet doesn't feel crunchy in the hair.
& Other Stories Lemon Daydream Body Scrub
Onto body products i've finally got round to using the & Other Stories Lemon Daydream Body Scrub. I bought this last year but wanted to use some other bits up first. This stuff smells so amazing, it's citrus with a hint of floral. It's a fairly oily scrub and leaves my skin feeling so smooth.
Hydraluron Moisture Jelly
I try not to test out too many skincare products at once so I don't often have many new favourites. This month however i've been enjoying using the Hydraluron Moisture Jelly; I loved the serum and the moisturiser version is very similar. I use it in the morning and it makes a great base for makeup and feels very hydrating without being heavy on the skin.
Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder
I've gone back to using the L'oreal True Match Foundation recently as the colour is a perfect match for my skin and it feels light whilst having a decent coverage. To set that in place i've been loving the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder (review). This is such a smooth, finely milled powder that it feels very light on the skin yet manages to keep my base product in place for most of the day.
Urban Decay Naked Palette
Since the weather has started to get cool again i've been reaching for my darker polishes. The one I always seem to go to when i'm in between seasons is Essie Watermelon. It is the perfect bright pink which looks so elegant on the nails, it's definitely one of my favourite polishes. For eyes i've been using the Urban Decay Naked Palette a lot this month. My favourite thing to do is just blend Smog all over the lid and it makes the perfect, quick smokey look.
Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains in New York Scene
Finally for lips i've been wearing the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stains in Barcelona Nights and New York Scene a lot. These aren't really the best long wearing stains but they're a nice, pigmented gloss which feels lovely on the lips. I can see myself wearing this shades even more in the colder months. 

So those are this months beauty favourites. It's my birthday next month so a few beauty purchase might be made which will no doubt make it into next months favourites. What beauty products have you been loving this month?


  1. I love L'Oreal's true match foundation too, I've been repurchasing it for years now :)
