August Beauty Favourites

Tuesday 3 September 2013

I’m blogging from the land of no internet… I’m in Wales for a week and I've had to try and use my phone as a hotspot and it’s not working too well haha! So that’s why this post might be a little more basic than usual.
I thought I’d do one of my infrequent monthly favourites posts as I actually made quite a few purchases during August and ended up really liking all of them.

MAC Strobe Cream – This was given to me for my birthday during July and I reviewed it here and I've just been loving it for adding a healthy radiant glow to my skin. Mixed in with my Healthy Mix Serum and it just looks so dewy!

Tresemm√© Liquid Gold – I had been looking at purchasing a hair oil for a while, I’d obviously been eyeing up the infamous Moroccan Oil but just couldn't justify the price tag. When I saw this on offer for half price I snapped it up and it’s really helped to tame the frizz and make my hair look shiny and healthy.

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara – I've raved on about Max Factor’s Masterpiece Max mascara numerous times but I think this may have just knocked it off the top spot. It’s volumising and stays put all day keeping the curl in my lashes and it has no clumping, I couldn't ask for anything more. I even accidentally picked it up in Black/Brown rather than standard black but it hasn't looked any different fortunately.

Collection Eyeshadow Pencils – These are quick and easy to apply when I’m in a rush in the morning and they do a few different shades but these two were the stand out shades for me as I’m not a fan of bold colours on me at all. I’m going to feature them in there own post shortly so keep a look out!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush – This brush is just perfect for applying my foundation. It leaves no annoying streaks across my face and buffs it in beautifully to a flawless finish. It’s really soft and I've not had any fallout from it either. For only £8.99 it’s a bargain and I really want to pick up all the Real Techniques brushes!

So, that's it for the monthly round up, what have you been loving this month?
