August Favorites!


Welcome to my August favorites! As some of you guys very well know, August has been a crazy month for me! I got my wisdom teeth removed, school is now back up again and life is being extremely hectic! So much money has to be dropped for college shopping that it is absolutely insane! I have a decent amount of makeup products that I will be sharing with you guys today that have been a favorite of mine for the past month or so, a couple of them are rediscovered favorites that I have and others are new favorites!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Dark Brown
I have changed up my favorite brow product for the last couple of months, but as you can see this is by far my newest favorite. I prefer this one over the Brow Wiz in Brunette and Elf Studio Brow Kit in Medium because this gives me the most natural brow. Yes, I can blend with the Brow Wiz and the Elf Brow Kit but the effect this brow powder gives is absolutely divine. Be on the lookout for an indepth review in the upcoming future!

Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach
I've only recently just started using this product actively in August and I now remember why I love it so much! This corrector works wonders for discoloration and brightening up light undereye circles. As you can see, I love it so much that I have hit pan on it! Yay for another Project 10 Pan product to be finished!

Elf Studio Blush in Pink Passion
While this blush is a scary color for a lot of people, it is absolutely beautiful if applied sheerly or applied with a heavy hand. I like this blush a lot because of that versatility. I have been using this blush almost every day of this month!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Moisturizer in SPF 50
Just when I was trying to find an affordable alternative to the Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen High Protection SPF 40, I have found something absolutely wonderful! I stumbled upon this product while searching the internet for the best liquid moisturizer on TotalBeauty.com and I am so glad that I picked this up! This work beautiful under makeup and on its own, and the price tag is so much more affordable then the Clarins Sunscreen!

NuMe 19MM Magic Wand
This curling wand is absolutely divine. The curls last all day without any hairspray and through Florida humidity. The price tag is absolutely crazy, but well worth it (especially since there are tons of coupon codes for this floating on the interwebs). Definitely a must try if you have straight hair that doesn't hold any shape of a curl. This curling wand is a total life changer for me and I will probably do something dangerous and buy the whole line now! Be on the look out for an indepth review soon!

Real Techniques Blush Brush
Ever since I purchased this brush in my Back to School Haul, I have not picked up another blush brush since (which is a sign of how amazing this brush is)! This brush has completely changed the way on how I apply blush nowadays, there is less room for error using this brush because it picks up product nicely without packing on an excessive amount. As such, I highly recommend this brush for those of you who own pigmented blushes like I do and have a heavy hand! This brush balances out my heavy hand in blushes which allows me to walk out of the house without looking like a clown!

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
This brush is another game changer in my makeup routine! I love using this brush with liquid foundations, it makes my holy grail foundation, the CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation, look even more beautiful on the skin! Definitely something worth checking out!

Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Pinched
I haven't really delved into cream blushes until I found this in my collection (yes, I may have misplaced this somewhere!). This blush is light to medium peach color that gives a nice natural flush of color on your cheeks. This blush is also nice to use when you want to layer with other blushes to prolong the wear of your blush!

Wet n Wild Bronzer in Reserve Your Cabana
I never realized the value of a subtle, powder highlight until I picked up this bad boy. The product amount of this is astronomically ridiculous, which means that you get almost a lifetime of useage out of it! Will be definitely using this highlighting product for months and months to come!

  3. I have been contemplating the Real Techniques brushes for a couple months now, trying to decide whether they'll be good as my Sedona Lace brushes... but the fact that you have two of them in your monthly favorites is TOTALLY swaying me. :)

    1. I probably can easily have my whole Real Techniques brushes as my favorites, those two are just the stand out products! I definitely recommend you pick them up if you can :D

  4. I want to pick up that Revlon blush, but I can never find it in the stores I go to! (MAYBE EVERYONE ELSE LOVES IT TOO ~_~)

    That highlighter is ridiculously sized, and if it was summer all year round in Canada, I'd probably try using that highlighter on my collarbones to cheat and use the product up more quickly ._.

    1. They are definitely pretty decent :) I need to check out other cream blush products...I hear that the NYX ones are pretty nifty :)

      Oh, I definitely use it on my collarbones to highlight them. Not that they need more definition or anything, but a little will make them look even better!

  6. Pinched is AMAZING! I actually forgot that I had that one until this morning when i was cleaning through my makeup! I really want to try the other one from the same line, a pretty coral. The Bobbi Brown corrector is a Godsend! One of my daily savors! xx

    2. Check out Ulta's 20 days of beauty (going on now). I think one of the day's is for a discount on Real Technique's brushes, but I can't remember for sure.
