August Favourites...


After reviewing the Soap and Glory One Heck of a Blot back in July (see post here) following a struggle to find a powder to suit my skin tone, I came across Maybelline's Matte Maker Mattifying Powder in Classic Ivory, this has been my saviour since running out of the S&G one, keeping shine, tango and cakeyness, if it wasn't a word, it is now, at bay. A light dusting sets my make-up for a full day of work and if I fancy topping up, I don't even have to worry about the creasing of my foundation. So far, so good.

Nothing will ever compare to my beloved Bourjois Volume One Seconde Mascara, however I have been reaching for my Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara as of late. This ludicrously named mascara gives amazing volume and length in one, giving you big, fat lashes all day long with no smudging or fall out in sight.

I have been extremely busy at the moment and therefore have had a big lack of sleep, so Mac's Nylon has been my ultimate make-up companion when trying to make myself look awake, if you can't make it, fake it. Nylon will forever be a favourite of mine, with it's multi-purpose offerings, I have been using this to highlight my brow bone, tear duct areas and I even use it to highlight my face when contouring.

With the colder month's drawing in, nearing the end of August my favourite lip combo compromised of Maybelline's Colour Sensational Lip Liner in Midnight Plum to outline my lips and on occasion, give my lips an ombre look, this lip liner is long lasting and really makes my red lipstick stand out. Pairing this with L'oreal's Color Riche Lipstick in Scarlett Creme has been a match made in heaven, this lipstick is a classic red, perfect for any occasion that lasts well and keeps lips hydrated throughout.

What have you been loving lately? Have you tried any of these products?
