August has been a busy month including a week in the South of Spain to relax. Here are this month’s favourites!
- Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I don’t think I have ever used Urban Decay mascara before but this month I decided to try the Perversion Mascara which I have in a sample size. One of its main selling points is that it doesn’t cause clumps or brittle lashes, which I have to agree with. I’ve been really impressed by this mascara and found my lashes looking healthy, with little clumping even when applying a couple of layers.
2. Maybelline Colour Tattoo
With being on holiday and very busy with work, I have wanted to have pretty eye makeup in as short of time as possible…the solution…Maybelline Colour Tattoo in ‘Pink Gold’ 65. I love this cream shadow, applying it after a transition shade and before a deeper shade in the outer corner. The shadow is long-lasting and maintains it sheen perfectly.
3. NYX Dark Circle Concealer Correcteur
To quickly brighten my under eyes, this salmon coloured corrector is perfect. I apply before foundation and concealer to look more awake than I really am!
4 & 5. Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner with YSL Rouge Volupé lipstick
My fourth and fifth favourites are a lip combination that I have been loving. With being on holiday I have wanted a long-lasting lip for the evenings that wasn’t drying. I found this by first using Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in 018 ‘Addiction’ all over my lip and placing YSL Rouge Volupté in colour 8 ‘Pink in Confidence’ on top. As you can see below this produces a lovely deep pink toned nude with a classy sheen. It feels so comfortable on the lips!
My one non-makeup / skin care favourite this month has been the series House. I can’t believe I have never watched this before but it means that I can binge on all eight seasons on Netflix. I’m currently enjoying series 3 so I have a lot more to watch.
What have your August favourites been? Anything I should try out?
