Monthly Favourites: August 2011 Edition...

Better late then never! I've finally got around to compiling my favourites throughout the month of August and here they are:

Favourite Make Up Products:
1: Cheeks


I have been reaching for two cheek products this month, my Rimmel Blush in Spring Flower and my Topshop Highlighter in Sunbeam. These products together give a lovely natural but girly look to the cheeks.

2: Lips


This month I have been in LOVE with Something New from MAC. It's an Amplified formula and the colour is a bright fuchsia which stays on the lips all day. I have used it lighted dabbed on the lips for more of a stain in the day and its full brightness with just a simple black winged liner eye for night. I am in love with MAC lipsticks and want to pick up Costa Chic as well as some lovely vampy colours for Autumn (suggestions please!).

3: Eyes

Pale colour in the top corner
I have been loving the Taupe colour from the new Sleek Au Natural iDivine Palette. It's one of those swipe and go colours that gives a finished look without the need to add other colours.

Favourite Hair Care Products:


This month has seen me religiously using the Guy Kremer Protection Serum! This stuff is truly amazing and has given life, shine and a soft feeling to my very dull blonde hair. I've been using one pump on wet hair before blow-drying and then another once it's all styled to keep fly aways at bay and seal in the ends of my hair. It smells amazing too. Check out the full review here.I have also been loving this Hair Mist from Wilkinson's. It smells gorgeous and is great to refresh your hair with a scent that lingers all day. (Review of the rest of the line coming soon!).

Favourite Skin Care Products:


I received this cleanser in my August GlossyBox and I've been using it everyday since. It leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed with that sort of menthol tingle. I have noticed a difference in the texture of my skin, its less shiny, my pores seem reduced and I don't seem to be breaking out as much. I am really considering purchasing the full sized product once this is all done. I started using PanOxyl (10%) this month and my skin became really dry and tight, so I picked up the Natural Repair Face Cream from Oilatum. It did the job of restoring the moisture in my skin and I've started using it every morning before makeup. It leaves my face looking dewy and fresh and my make up more natural. 

Favourite Shower Product:


OMG! Words cannot describe how much I love and want to EAT this product. It smells amazing and makes my skin feel lush, I've used the whole bottle this month and I need more in my life.

Favourite Nail Polish:


Rather than a particular polish, I have been in love with wearing red on my nails this month. It's a classic colour that instantly gives a manicured look.

Favourite Blog:


I've read Victoria's blog for ages now and absolutely love her new eBay Designer Series. Have an item you've been looking for for ages, or a designer bag you wouldn't mind getting at a bit of a steal, Victoria's your girl! Her outfit posts are gorgeous and she has a great sense of style. If you don't follow her already you should.

What did you love throughout the month of August?

Much Love,
Lauran
