August Favourites


I'm still kinda in denial that August is over. Not only did it go so fast but it means that it's the end of winter *sob*. This month I have gotten super busy with university, placement, work, gym, life things..but alas I have been loving some great products. 
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation you  rock! Honestly this foundation has been so good to me in the last month. I've had many ungodly early mornings and this foundation makes me appear to have had a full nights sleep due to it's glowy brightening finish. I wrote a review of it here. 
Maybellines Lash Sensational was love at first swipe. Unlike Benefits 'Rollerlash' (which lash sensational is a dupe for, apparently) I liked this instantly. It gives feather like lashes with one coat, and the second coat builds it up to be big curled lashes. If you aren't wanting to splurge on the Rollerlash then try this mascara as I think it's just as good.
The Dior Lip Maximizer Lipgloss is my favourite lipgloss ever, and i'm not even a lipgloss kind of girl.  Whenever I think of lipgloss I just think of hair blowing in the wind and getting stuck on my lips (not very flattering eh?). But this isn't sticky! Hooray! My lips don't go huge when I apply this, but they do look a little more pouty.
Nothing beats my trusty Soap & Glory cat flick eyeliner but I do really like this Rimmel Scandaleyes liner. What I like about this one is that the tip is bendy so it makes it easier to drag across the lid in one fluid motion. I've just been reaching for this liner lots so I thought it was worth a mention.
Only got this Elf Flawless Concealer Brush a few weeks ago but it's great, 10/10 would recommend. It's cheap ($8) and does a great job at lightly blending the concealer in. Originally i'd use my Real Techniques flawless face brush but this works so much better cause it's smaller and can get into the nooks around the eye.
These Essence lipliners are the bomb diggity. Colours I have are: In the nude, cute pink, and soft berry. What I love about these is that they are super duper creamy and can be used all over the lips. They're also very pigmented which is noice. Best thing - they're only $2!!! I'm gonna go back and buy all the lipliners cause they're such a steal.

Non-beauty favourites

The Weeknds new album "beauty behind the madness" is just A+. I've listened to it a few times now and it's just so addictive. Also Foals new album just arrived in the mail two days ago and i'm yet to give that a listen, can't wait though. ALSO Lana Del Reys album is going to be out soon which is very excited. Love myself some Lana.

Started watching Breaking Bad (kinda late to the party) and i'm onto season 2. So far I like it!! I'm watching it with my friend which is nice but also kinda sucks cause that means I can't marathon the heck out of it when she's not here haha.

Anyway those are all my favourites for the month of August. Please let me know what your favourites have been! And tell me if you love any of the products i've mentioned. Cheers :)
