August Beauty Favourites

Hello my fellow blog lovers!
It's September... which means that August has sadly come to an end, but that does mean a monthly favourites post is due, don't you agree? Throughout August I have been loving a few beauty products that I thought I would share with you!
Before you get into reading this fabulously, wonderful blog post (I hope) I just would like to point out that this is actually a collar with my ever so delightful internet friend, Sophia! Her blog is truly wonderful and so well-written it's definitely worth the read! So, once you have read this blog post make sure you head over to her blog for the exact same post only from her point of view:

Rimmel 15th Anniversary by Kate - My Nude
Some of you may recognise this lipstick from my last post so if you do then you will know that I have been LOVING this lipstick throughout summer! It's a beautiful pink nude, perfect for pale-ish skin. This lipstick is super moisturising and the consistency is very creamy very much like a lip butter, any lipsticks from this collection are worth a try!

M.A.C - OBI Orange
In summer I do love my nudes but I also absolutely love to wear oranges and corals. I have especially been loving this lipstick by M.A.C. This lipstick is a creme sheen so it's incredibly moisturising and even though it looks amazingly bright it's not blindingly bright because it is a creme sheen (but don't get me wrong it still is vibrant). This has been my go to lipstick throughout August as you can see by the rather ugly indent in the lipstick... hey, at least it's well loved!

Bourjois Shine Edition - 26
This has been my holy grail lipstick this summer! I cannot tell you how much I am in love with this beautiful creation, haha! This is basically a very nude, nude lipstick... and what I mean by that is it is literally the colour of my lips but if I just whack a bit of this on it completely transforms my lips and makes them look less... dead! The reason why it's not as bright as it looks is because it is a extreme creme sheen, I guess you could say and as you can see this lipstick is very well loved too. The only thing I do not like about this lipstick is that the packaging is just too big for the lipstick. For how big the packaging is there is barely any actual product in there but other than that it is pure perfection!


As it's summer I haven't really been wearing much on my eyes as I usually like to keep my make-up very light and natural (the bold colours are for Autumn and Winter) but there are two products that I have been using a heck of a lot throughout August.

L'Oreal - False Lash Telescopic Mascara
I have been using this mascara almost every day of August and that's saying something for me as I've always found it incredibly hard to find good mascaras. I've only ever found one; the Roller Lash mascara by Benefit but I think it's safe to say that this mascara just beats Benefit's well-known product. It's incredibly lengthening AND separates my lashes so well! I usually just put on two layers of this mascara and I'm good to go!

NYX Extreme Shine Eye Liner - Azure & Purple Blaze
I'm quit surprised that I picked these products up as both eye liners are very bright and very outgoing and in Summer I tend to just stick to mascara and that's it for eyes but even in Winter this is quite outgoing for me. These eyeliners are basically just a glittery coloured crayon (the best way I could describe it) and I picked up two colours; a purple and a light blue. I usually only put this on my waterline and I usually start off with the purple in the outer corners of my eye and bring that to the middle of my eye and then blend in the blue in to the purple and bring it down the inner half of my eye and believe me it looks gorgeous! These claim to be waterproof and I promise you, they are! I will definitely be picking up more of these!

Zoella Beauty Body Mist - Let's Spritz
I only got this fragrance in June and I think you can tell that it's pretty well loved! I've been using this body mist every day throughout August! I just think this is such a summery scent. It's very fruity and tropical but also very sweet so if you're a sucker for more musky scents then I'm not sure this perfume is for you, but, I personally love this... and can I just say the packaging is just absolutely to die for!

The Body Shop - Japanese Cherry Blossom
Again, I think this is a very summery scent. It's actually very similar to the Zoella Body Mist as I am one heck of a lover for sweet scents. I feel like you can only really use this in Spring and Summer as in Autumn and Winter I prefer more spicy and musky fragrances so I may have to put this one away as we enter the colder seasons but I love it nonetheless!

I really hope you enjoyed this blog post! I know I didn't have that many favourites but I thought it was better to have less and go into full detail than have loads and just say one line about each product because what help would that be? I have loved all of these products throughout August and would recommend them to anybody!
That's it for now and I'll see you very soon for some very autumnal posts... ooo, exciting!
