I really want to be one of those people that writes about how shocked I am that it is nearly September… I have been spending like it is going out of fashion throughout July and August (perks of the summer job when you’re a student) so I have tested and loved a lot of new products which has been so so exciting. Here are some of my August favourites, baring in mind it has mainly consisted of working, blogging or spending time with my boyfriend.
The highlight of my month in terms of beauty has to be the Fleur Loves lashes, they’re the best lashes I have found to provide a natural difference. I hate the look of spidery fake lashes that are clutching on for dear life by glue, it just looks awful, these are the exact opposite and add a feminine and polished look without being uncomfortable. I have fallen back in love with the Nina Ricci – Nina L’Eau it is essentially a floral fragrance which is all I seem to go for, but more evening appropriate
or if I’m wanting to feel fancy from the musk undertones.
On my nails I have been wearing anything neural, The Collection 7 days wear polish in Suede has actually surprised me and the quality is pretty damn good for £1.99, this shade is pigmented only needing two coats and lasts around 4 days before I need to re do them, which for me is pretty good going. A new concealer that I can’t stop reaching for is the L’oreal True Match Concealer – Shade 2 Vanilla, it has yellow undertones so works really well under my tired eyes, and the light weight and blendable formula make is really comfortable too. I haven’t had problems with creasing and it is really long lasting, it had to be in a monthly favourites!
Last, but not least as this is on of my favourite single shadows that I own, MACs Amber Lights, it is a shimmery orange/ copper colour, the perfect all year round shade that adds something to a boring eye makeup day or looks amazing all over the lid. I have been applying this along my lower lash line with a pencil brush and I love the result, as you would expect from MAC the shadow is pigmented and long lasting.
What were your favourites this month? I am so excited to move into September and slowly start making things more Autumnal…
