I'm going to start with some fake tans. I've been really into self tanning this month and i've enjoyed getting a good faux glow. The first one I picked up was the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan. This is the one I ended up using for my graduation as it is so easy to apply and leaves you with the most natural looking tan, perfect for fair skin. For those days where you wake up and it's really sunny but your legs are looking super pasty I wanted to pick up an instant tan. I went for the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan in Light Matte. I haven't probably used this one yet but i'm excited to try it. The final tan I got is the St. Moriz Instant Self Tanning Lotion in Medium. I wanted to try a lotion to see if I prefer that to a foam but again I haven't tested this one yet.
Onto some skincare bits. I picked up the Montagne Jeunesse Dragon Fruit Sauna Mask, I'd never seen this one before so I thought I would give it a go. An exciting purchase was the Indeed Labs Hydraluron Moisture Jelly, I wanted to pick this up whilst it was a 1/3 off in Boots plus I had a points voucher. I've been using this in the morning for the past few days and it's been leaving my skin feeling really soft and hydrated.
I was in need of a new face powder and couldn't decide between these two so ended up getting both. The first is one i've wanted to try for a long time is the Bourjois Healthy Balance Unifying Powder. I've used this a couple of times and so far the powder is so fine and feels very light on the skin and doesn't look cakey. The other being the Seventeen Miracle Matte Pressed Powder, i've heard going things about this and thought it would be good on hot/oily skin days.
I've been back into neutral nails recently and I spotted this one and had to get it; Barry M Gelly Hi Shine in Coconut. This looks white yet has a pink/brown undertone to it. I also tracked down the Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain in Barcelona Nights. I love the packaging of these and they apply glossy and dry to a stain. This shade is a lovely bright pink and I definitely want to pick up some more shades of these as I really have been liking this one.
So those have been the beauty purchases i've made this month. I'm going to try and do a no spending for most of August as well. I have actually enjoyed shopping my stash and seeing what things I already have. What beauty purchases have you made this month?
