August Favourites 2014

August Favourites 2014
I know everyone always says this every month but I can't believe August is over and we are now in September! I personally love September, even though it is back to school time, because it is my birthday month so I am definitely pleased that it has turned up so fast. This month hasn't been a  major makeup month but these are some of the things I have really enjoyed recently.

First up is the Sephora Classic Multitasker Brush which has now become my go-to face makeup brush. I have been using this to blend in foundation, concealer and tinted moisturiser and it leaves a flawless, streak free finish and is so easy to use. I have done a full review of this here if you want to know more about it.

The next product is the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Shape Brow Pencil in Dark Blonde. I have been using this everyday for the past month and I feel like I have finally mastered the art of filling in my brows. It has a waxy consistency with really good pigmentation making my brows defined whilst still looking natural. The added bonus with this is that it has a spoolie on the end to brush through your brows to ensure all of the hairs are going in the right direction. This product is so good that I have actually repurchased it because I used my first one up which is the sign of a really good product.

My most loved lip products this month have been the balance me rose otto intensive lip salve and then Topshop Lip Liner in Fearless, which unfortunately is not for sale anymore. I am not a massive fan of wearing bright, bold colours on my lips due to the fact I never think they suit me, so instead I opt for tinted balm like products or more nude shades for my lips. So in an attempt to wear this Topshop lip liner I decided to layer it up with a lip balm product to soften the colour slightly and I am totally sold. It allows me to alter how intense I want the colour to be at the same time as infusing a bit of a summer vibe into my everyday makeup routine. 

Now onto my last beauty product of the month, the Soap and Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub. At the beginning of the month my skin was going through a very dry spell and was not looking its best. So I decided to try and find a new scrub. Of course the first brand I looked at was Soap and Glory because they do some of the best bath and body products out there for a really good price. After smelling quite a few different scrubs I settled on this one and I have not been disappointed. The smell is delicious, sweet but not overpowering and the product itself works really well, leaving my skin feeling really smooth and not dry at all.

Probably my most favourite favourite this month has to be the magazine Allure. It is an American beauty magazine that is very difficult to track down here in the UK. I managed to find one in a local WH Smiths and I cannot describe how happy I was to finally have one to read. I was certainly not disappointed and have reread it a few times over the last couple of weeks. With articles all about makeup, hair and skincare it is the perfect magazine for every beauty blogger and I might sign up for a years subscription of it just to save me the hassle of trying to find one again!

There we have it, favourites done for another month. What have been your favourite things recently?
