August Favourites

Hey everyone,

It’s that time again… my monthly favourites! This months favourites are a mixture of beauty, hairs and random bits!

My first favourite is the Perversion Mascara from Urban Decay. This is one of the products I picked up while doing my course and I am so so glad I did! Its jet black and adds a huge amount of volume and curl to the lashes without any going clumpy. I’ve struggled to find the perfect mascara for me but I think this might be it!

The next thing I have been loving is a song. ‘Cool for the summer’ by Demi Lovato is such an upbeat and catchy song with I think is absolutely perfect for summer. Every time it comes on my playlist I can’t help but sing along. Demi’s voice is phenomenal and this song definitely doesn’t disappoint.

I also picked up my next favourite while I was doing my course in Urban Decay. It is the Naked Skin Weightless ultra definition Liquid Makeup. This is a water-based foundation which means it is medium coverage but is very buildable if you would like a higher coverage. Even though it has amazing coverage it is so light on the skin. I’ve be loving how it looks on my skin and how easy it is to buff in.

I took a break from these next products for about a month and I really saw the difference. Since I got my hair dyed again back in July I was using the shampoo and conditioner I got in the salon. In the beginning it was amazing but I started to notice my hair wasn’t feeling as silky or smooth as usual and sometimes looked a bit lifeless. I wasn’t sure what was causing this so I changed back to using the Loreal Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo and Conditioner that I had previously been using. I can definitely feel the difference in my hair so i’ll be sticking to these products from now on.

This month I have been obsessed with the Maybelline New York Colorsensational lipsticks! They are super pigmented and moisturising. They won’t budge all day hardly needing any topping up and they are not drying on your lips at all! These shades are (from left to right)
‘418 Peach Poppy’, ‘906 Hot Plum’, ‘740 Coffee Craze’ and ‘158 Power Peony’. I am loving these lipsticks and definitely want to pick up some more shades and at €15 for 2 in boots they are great value.

The last thing I’ve been loving in August is a book. If you read a few posts back you’ll know that I’ve recently got a new interest in reading. As the paper towns movie was coming out this month I wanted to read the book by John Green first. I had been recommended this a few years ago but was never big into books so I decided to give it a go now! I loved it. I’m not going to give anything away for anyone who hasn’t read it or seen the movie but the story is so captivating and mysterious which is exactly what I love. I haven’t had the chance to get to the cinema and see the movie yet but I can’t wait to see it and to see Cara Delevigne playing Margo, I’m sure it will be fantastic.

That’s all of my favourites i’m going to share with you this month! Let me know in the comments below what you have been loving!
