August Favourites

The end of another month means it's time again to have a little ramble about the beauty bits really floating my boat. It's a rather makeup centric bundle this time around and with one too many naughty purchases this month the outlook for next month is looking good too. Typical rambly favourites intro aside, on to this month's loves.

Don't you just love it when a freebie sample becomes your newest makeup obsession? That's exactly what happened with this little sample of Clinique's popular High Impact Mascara. I've never been one to invest in high end mascara offerings but this one may have just changed that. I can't quite pinpoint exactly what it does, it just makes my lashes look good. Lengthed but not spidery, volumised but not clumped... could this be my first pricey mascara purchase?

Talking eyes and another Clinique offering has really impressed me. I've read so many posts about Clinique's famous chubby sticks, eyes, lips, cheeks I've seen them all! I'm so glad I finally gave in and picked up Fuller Fudge for eyes. A shimmery bronze that's quick to apply, blends with ease and sticks around all day. I really like how you can apply just a little for something natural or go a little harder for something a bit more dramatic. It's been thrown in to my daily makeup bag and definitely makes the five minute face cut.

I have been embracing some serious bronzer lately and I've fallen in love with this one from NP Set. It looks a little red/orange in this picture but it actually looks so natural on the skin, even with my uber pale complexion. Buffed in to the usual suspects this deserves a post of it's own (stay tuned!).

On to a slightly more purse friendly offering from Bourjois. Their Happy Light Concealer has recently made it's way in to my daily makeup rotation. I simply take some on my Real Techniques Buffing Brush and stipple in to areas that need that extra coverage. It's not the heaviest duty concealer out there but it definitely helps to blur imperfections whilst still looking natural.

My final favourite for this month is Argania's Cashmere Hair Leave In Conditioner. I am well overdue a hair cut so have been trying to really ramp up the hair care to hide my damaged ends. A few spritz's of this post hair wash really helps detangle and nourish. Plus it smells like holiday which is never a bad thing, am I right?


  1. Cashmere hair sounds so luxurious!! That mascara sounds awesome too, I will have to check it out :)

  2. I've heard so much about the happy light concealer and it's definitely something I need to pick up!

  3. I love the sound of the leave in hair conditioner….I'm always looking for things to hydrate my hair as much as possible as the ends get so dry!!! Plus if it's smells like summer/holiday what's not to love! :)
