August Monthly Favourites

Monday, 26 August 2013


Hi Beauties! I know everyone says this all the time, but I genuinley can't believe it's September (almost) already! It seems like yesterday that I was packing up my stuff and moving to London to start my new job and the time has flown by! It's true what they say, time really does fly when you're having fun! I haven't done a monthly favourites post in a while now but for the past few months there hasn't really been anything that has stood out to me enough to include it in a favourites post. Anyway, this has all changed and I'll get onto the post. 

Moroccan Oil - This has featured in my Monthly Favourites a couple of times before but I recently ran out of my big bottle and never got round to replacing it as it is quite expensive. My Mum kindly gave me this little bottle for my Birthday and I've fallen back in love with it. When you stop using something and then start again, you really do notice and appreciate the difference that it makes, and boy does this make a difference. No other product has managed to make my hair feel this soft and allow it to grow despite the heat damage I put it though, it really is love with this one. 

Victoria's Secret 'Sensual Blush' Body Spray - If you read my blog regularly, then you'll know I'm a big lover of body sprays for everyday daytime wear and this is my all time favourite. It's so fresh and summery and smells slightly fruity which is what I usually look for in a perfume. I hate heavy smells and avoid them even during the winter when they are more appropriate, so this body spray is perfect for me. 

MAC 'Sunny Seoul' Lipstick - I love this lipstick for the summer months, and even though summer is now coming to an end, I'm still wearing it quite a lot. Its a beautiful pink coral shade so it goes great with a summer make up look. It's also a cremesheen which is my favourite type of lipstick from MAC as its so creamy and moisturizing. My love for MAC lipsticks is continuing to grow rapidly, but I just don't know which one to pick up next! Any suggestions?

Benefit 'Hoola' Bronzer - I recently picked this up as I received a Benefit gift card as a birthday present from the lovely people I work with. I've been in need of a new bronzer since my trusty MAC one ran out a few months ago and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get one. This bronzer is quite pigmented so I only have to use a tiny bit as I'm so pale but it's definitely build-able if you want a darker contour. Hoola is also a matte bronzer and the perfect colour if your trying to avoid the 'muddy' look which you can get with some bronzers. 

Benefit 'Watts Up' Highlighter - I also picked this up with my gift card and I'm so happy that I did. I've been wanting this for ages and finally decided to take the plunge. It comes in a stick form which some of you may not love but I think its the perfect champagne colour and it's so creamy and easy to blend. I have quite dry skin so I try to avoid too much powder on my face and this is perfect for that. It's so pretty when it catches the light and I've been using this everyday since I bought it. 

MAC Opulash Mascara - My mum also gave me this for my birthday which I love. It gives my lashes the perfect curl and is so easy to use and get into the smaller corners of my eyes. It does set your lashes quite solid though so if you are going to try this then I would recommend you invest in a good eye make up remover like the Elemis White Flowers one if you don't want to be rubbing your eyes for ages. I also have very watery eyes when I'm in a air-conditioned room or in the wind (basically every day) and always end up with panda eyes but this mascara has prevented this from happening and I couldn't be happier.
