Make Up Monthly Favourites Skincare

August Favourites!

I’m so excited to share with you my favourite products for August as I have been trying some new stuff! I have a range of beauty and body products to share with you, so please keep reading 🙂

Beauty Products

1. The Body Shop: Born Lippy Lip Balm

Since being in winter my lips have been dry and chapped, so I have been searching for a new   lip product and so happy I have now found it! I have the raspberry flavour/colour and its such a pretty colour which simply enhances my natural lips. It is available from Body Shop stores for $AU 8.95. I totally recommend it!

2. Clinique Stay Matte Foundation

I have combination/oily skin which is also acne prone and could never ever find the perfect formulation to keep my face from looking shiny.. until now. This foundation is gorgeously smooth and easy to blend, it have buildable coverage I usually only apply one layer for everyday wear and that’s equivalent to medium coverage. However I have worn two layers when going out for a special occasion and it make my skin look absolutely flawless – and its totally not! I purchased mine from Myer for $AU50.00, I love this foundation and definitely recommend it to problem prone and oily skin.

3. Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer

I saw these raved about all over the blogger and youtube beauty community and just had to try them! I purchased the shade Nova and its the most beautiful pink colour I love wearing it with my Rimmel Kate Moss Matte Lipstick in shade 103.  The have a reasonable lasting power and are very pigmented and glossy. They retail for $AU15.95 at Priceline, however I got mine in the introductory sale – Priceline currently have a 2 for 3 sale at the moment.

4. The Body Shop:  Strawberry Body Puree

When I found this body cream I was so excited, because its light and smells delicious. Unlike the Body Shop body butters this cream immediately absorbs into the skin and has a handy pump. During the winter months I have been using it non-stop! I purchased mine from The Body Shop for $AU21.95, although its kind of expensive its a great product that lasts quite a long time.


5. Magazines

This month I’ve been trying out heaps of new mags and have been loving SHOP til’ you drop and Harpaer’s Bazaar. These two mags are great to just flick through and look at nice pictures haha.
I love to put my scented candle on, listen to music and relaxingly read my magazines. Great way to unwind!

Not too many faves this month, but I truly recommend them all! Any further questions, don’t be afraid to ask! Also recommend me some of your faves for August in the comments.

Love Ya,
