August Favorites

3 Comments

For me, the end of August is bitter sweet. I am super excited for the start of my favorite season…fall! At the same time, though, it also means school and homework. Anyway, here are the products I have been loving this month.

P.S. I have gotten a lot of new products this month (mostly because it was my birthday), so I could only include some, but I will include the others in some upcoming posts. I figured that would be more helpful.

August Favorites
Lush lip scrub / I received this as a gift and I am absolutely obsessed with it! I have been using in every night…and sometimes every morning. It leaves my lips so soft and luscious. I am not a huge, huge fan of the flavor, but with the effect that it gives….it’s so worth it. @ Lush
Maybelline baby lips / I got this a while ago, but for some reason, I have been obsessed with it lately. It leaves your lips so smooth and perfect. I really prefer the “quenched” flavor of the other ones, for I feel as though it does a better job moisturizing your lips and is a bit thicker, but they are all pretty amazing. @ drugstore
Urban Decay all nighter / with the start of school and ballet, my makeup is put to the ultimate test for staying power. This stuff works wonder…well, when I’m not sweating everything off of course. It definitely does with stand the fitness class worthy sweats at school and the oil that builds up throughout the day. @ Sephora
NYC smooth skin bronzer / basically, I have three words….i. am. obsessed. This is amazing. It distributes the perfect amount of pigment and is the perfect color. Definitely go and pick this up. You can’t beat the price tag! P.S. I’ve heard it’s better than the NARS laguna bronzer. @ drugstore
Estee Lauder eye shadow in mocha cup / this has been my favorite eye shadow this month. I love putting a little on my lid and under my eyes for a soft smokiness. @ Estee Lauder
Bobbi Brown blending brush / this is the perfect brush for applying shadow all over the lid or, of course, blending. @ Bobbi Brown
Blemish Clearing concealers / i decided to link two concealers in one. First, I bought the Neutrogena one and loved it, but found it was not quite opaque enough. Then, I bought the Bobbi Brown one, which I also loved and solved the opaqueness problem, but was a bit hard to blend. Over all, these are great dupes of each other, because I love both and they both contain salicylic acid to clear breakouts. @ Bobbi Brown or drugstore
Organix coconut milk shampoo and conditioner / i absolutely love these. Unlike the moroccan oil ones, they are thick, but not too thick, and are moisturizing, provide shine, make my hair so soft, don’t make it frizzy, oh…and they smell amazing. I think these are my absolute favorite shampoos and conditioners. @ drugstore
Lush “honey I washed the kids” soap / i love this soap. First, it smells amazing, it cleans really well, and I love that there is real honey comb on the top, which melts so nicely into your skin the first few times you use it which makes your shower extra, extra, luxurious! @ Lush
