Favourites of the Month: August

07:32 Unknown 0 Comments

As the weather has changed drastically I've switched up my everyday makeup and I've discovered some really good products. Some are old favourites and some are new but I'm really enjoying how they look on my face at the moment. 

I purchased the Super Facialist by Una Brennan Vitamin C+ Brighten Glow Boost Skin Serum (£11.33 its on offer in Boots at the moment) as I was drawn to the name and the smell of it. It smells very citrusy and was looking for a serum to brighten up my skin as its been a little dehydrated and dull looking. So far I've been loving it, it makes my skin feel velvety soft and it's inexpensive which is always a plus. 
A couple of months ago I bought the Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream (£9.99) before I went on holiday because I thought it would be the perfect base for the evenings when I was abroad as I don't like heavy makeup in the sun and it usually just melts off. Ever since I've been back I've used it everyday, it creates such a dewy my skin but better base and I love it! It's perfect for when its warm and just evens my skin tone out. To apply the CC cream I've been using a buffing brush as I found this really applies the product effortlessly and streak free, also can be applied with a beauty sponge. The Nanshy Flawless Foundation Brush F01 (£9.95) has been a favourite for many months but I've used it so much recently I thought I'd give it a mention. Also it's inexpensive, similar to Real Technique prices and the same quality. 

I wanted to get a loose powder as I've seen they give off a much more flawless finish than a pressed powder, and I thought as my skin is dry I'd rather get something that doesn't settle into any dry patches. As you can tell by the pot there is now writing left as it has been well loved! It's the Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder (£6.99) which is a great powder for setting under the eyes and around the face, it's very light and doesn't feel cakey at all which is what I really like about it. To apply the loose powder I've started using the B. Beauty Sponge (£4.99) instead of using a brush and I've found this gives off an airbrush effect and is useful because I use this sponge for concealer and other cream products. This is very similar to the Real Techniques sponge but doesn't have the flat edge but as this one is cheaper I thought I'd try it and I've really been enjoying using it. The primer I've started using after finishing the Loreal Lumi Magique is the Seventeen Skin Wow Primer (£4.99 on offer at Boots at the moment) as I wanted to find a similar one which was cheaper and I came across this for only £5 and I swatched it and was amazed at the pay off this gave. When this is applied it gives a very luminous glow which I really like as a primer and it shows off underneath foundations and bb creams which I found difficult for the Lumi Magique, so for half the price I was happy with that! 

Maybelline Master Contour Duo Stick
I've been using the Rimmel Kate Moss Sculpting Palette (£6.99) for a while now and the bronzer is by far my favourite from the palette it's a perfect shade for my skin tone as I'm Maybelline Master Contour Duo Stick (£6.99) is a recent purchase and so far I've been loving it it's perfect to carve out the cheek bones and blends so nicely with a sponge. The highlighter is good too I use this mostly under my eyes and on the bridge of my nose, it also blends away seamlessly with its creamy texture.
pretty fair. The highlighter isn't very pigmented but good for minimal makeup days and the blusher is nice but at the moment I've not been needing blusher. The

I have just jumped on the hype of getting Maybelline's Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze (£4.99). I heard about it so long ago that it was amazing but never managed to get around to buying it, now I have and I love it! I love the colour tattoo formula anyway and I really like the colour of this and the way it looks on my lids. I've also recently purchased Maybelline Lash Sensational (£7.99) which I've fallen in love with it makes my lashes look so fluttery and long which is the look I like to go with when wearing mascara. Lastly, the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm (£5.50) I've been loving this shade on neutral makeup days as it's the perfect peachy nude for my skin tone and I had a few of these and love the texture and longevity.
