Did it feel like August whizzed by in a flash to anyone else, or just me? It might have a lot to do with the fact that I was struck down with the flu for a good part of the month and on holidays for another part, but even then it feels like Favourites time has come around super quickly. But! Spring is very almost here, and soon I’ll be dusting off my favourite peach and coral toned makeup bits and my wardrobe full of maxi dresses, all keen to make a reappearance after their hibernation during winter. In the meantime, here’s what has tickled my fancy during the month that was August…
Benefit They’re Real Liner: What was once Mission Impossible is now Mission Pretty Much Possible. I feel like I can wield this liner now with some confidence, which was definitely not how our relationship started out. I’m loving the longevity of wear, and once I got the hang of it, the ease of creating the perfect feline flick. Look out for this one popping up in an upcoming ‘The Look’ post, based on a Springtime makeup look using Benefit products.
Herbal Essences Naked Shine Shampoo and Conditioner: I’ve been looking for my holy grail S&C for positively an AGE, and after trying a plethora of both super expensive and super cheap products and never being satisfied, I finally found my match when these two arrived in June’s Bellabox. My hair doesn’t feel weighed down, it’s not so fly-away, it just feels good.
Lonvitalite C4 Coconut Milk Hydrating and Nourishing Mask: You can check out my full ode to these masks here, but I’ll just say that these have been my best friend while I have been recovering from the flu, along with the Collagen Crystal Eye Masks. Both have been literally saving my skin.
NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramasu: It’s a late entry into the favourites, but when I happened to take advantage of Target’s 30% off NYX sale, I fell in love with this gloss immediately. And that’s a big statement for me, as I’m not really a gloss girl at all. Thank you Tasha @ Shiwashiful for the suggestion! Stay tuned for a review of this gloss along with the rest of my mini NYX haul during the week.
NARS nail polish in Shameless Red: This pinky-red polish has got me right in the mood for Spring. This is definitely a “me” shade, and I’m sure I’ll be sporting it on quite a regular basis in the months to come.
