My August Favourites – Round Up

My August Favourites – Round Up

So as August has been and gone, pretty quickly to say the least and not in very good weather style as we all know. I thought I’d do one-of-those typical monthly favourites post as I have been trying out some new things over the past month that I have been loving!

So we’ll kick off with the base…

  1. Bio-Essence Miracle Finisher

I have actually written a full blog post about this wonderful product which you can catch here.

This is by far my favourite primer at the moment. I apply it as the very last product of my morning skincare routine (not that I have much of one but still). So this effectively acts as a primer and a base for applying foundation and make-up. It reduces the clogging of pores and is so effective. I actually feel like this is a must now as it really is a safety blanket for me as I hate knowing what makeup does to my bare skin!

2. Barry M Contour stick

So this actually comes as a set with the contour cream and the highlight cream, but I only really use the contour cream stick. I have had this for AGESSSSS! It’s one of those products I forget about and then pull out of my make up stash then become obsessed with it. This is the easiest contour product I have, literally just swipe down the top of my cheek and then blend with a brush. I have been looking at the clinique one and really want to try that. Has anyone tried that one?

August Beauty Favourites

3. Benefit Boi-ing Brightening Concealer

I have also written a whole blog post on this one as well as it deserved it’s own blog post as I LOVE it. I won’t go into too much detail as you can read my thoughts in more detail here. If you like full coverage concealer then this is the one for you. It is really thick and creamy and works wonders both under foundation and on top as a brightener, that’s why I got this in shade ‘light’

4. MUA Highlight Shimmer Stick

This is such a gorgeous highlight stick. Again it’s one of those I bought a little while ago and have recently started using it more and more. It leaves such a nice shimmer, but the reason I really like it is because it’s a cream based product but is easy to blend and apply. I normally go for powder based highlighters but this is proving me wrong!

L'oreal Baby Roll Mascara

5. L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll Mascara

Wow, okay I have been using this for a week now and I am obsessed! I literally love finding new drugstore mascara to try out as I don’t like paying too much for mascara’s as I have long eyelashes anyway, just that my eyelashes are very light! So I need a mascara that really darkens and intensifies my eyelashes, and this does just the job!

6. NYX lid-lingerieย 

I also done a blog post featuring this beauty which you can find here. I am useless at doing my eyeshadow, I think it’s partly because I don’t do it a lot so I don’t really practice, but this has made my life so much easier when I go to apply eyeshadow. All you need to do is swipe it across your eyelid and it looks so effortless! I really want to try some more colours, so that’s next on my list ๐Ÿ™‚

So, there were have my favourite products in August, I love all of these and will continue to wear them.

What are some of your favourite products you used in August?

Also, if you didn’t already know I started up (very poorly) a YouTube channel and have just posted a Vlog on the bank holiday weekend which you can watch below….enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
