August Favourites ♥

August flew by, I cant believe its September...Back to college in a few days, its my final year of a 3 year diploma course, so im actually quite looking forward to what this year brings!

The past month ive tried (...and failed) to not buy any more makeup and use what i have. So most of this months favourites are products that have been sat in my drawer that ive dug out and rediscovered.

As you can see, Ive been loving blush/highligter products this month.

Here are the lip products ive been reaching for in the month of August...

Benefit Coralista -

Beautiful blush, probably my favourite blush ever, and thats saying alot since i must have close to 100 various blushes! Its the perfect balance between a pink and a peach and gives the most GORGEOUS glow! I was looking through some photos of nights out when i was wearing this and it photographs really glowy, it looks fab!

Nars Gina -

Ive been reaching for this to layer undewr coralista for a more peachy colour, its super pigmented and also one of my fave blushes.

Mac Stereo Rose -

Ive been wearing this on days where i'm feeling lazy. I just slap this on and it works as a blush and a highlighter all in one. Beautiful colour also!

Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick For Body -

Used this ever day since i got it, The shimmers are not chunky at all and you get a choice of 3 different colours!

Benefit Highbeam -

Ive been mixing this in with my foundation to make the finnish more luminous. It works perfectly.

Mac Studio Fix Fluid -

Ive had this for AGES, never used it much until this month because the first time i tried it , i felt that it was far too heavy and cakey Not now though, I'm in love with it now ive mastered how to apply it! (...use the beauty blender!) I also have very light freckles and this covers them nicely.

Beauty Blender Sponge -

Seriously, this is the best thing invented. If you dont own this, i suggest you go buy Its changed the way my foundation looks and applies all together. No more cakeynes at all! You just dampen the sponge and it expands to nearly double its size, dip it in a bit of foundation and dab on! It takes me about 2 minutes to do my whole face and the finnish is streak free and flawless. Love this little beauty, bye bye foundation brushes.

Mac Shy Girl -

The perfect creamy coral, Love!

Barry M 101 Marshmellow -

Now, i HATE this on its own, but paired with shy girl, its gorgeous. Been wearing that combo all month.

Mac Tendertone Hush Hush -

Rediscovered this, but sadly these have been discontinued ): Its a lovely lip balm/gloss that really moisturizes my lips.

Phew, that was a long list!

On another note -
Today ive been making cupcakes, one of my favourite things to do.

    @ Gee - Got it off eBay. You can get 2 for around £20. With the cleanser and everything.
    Quite pricey for a 'sponge'...but it works great. Better then any brush!
