August Favourites

August just finished, no more winter which is good and bad, it's sad because no more skiing :( but Spring and warm weather is just round the corner. (:

Okie dokes, let's just get into it.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF 20 Oil Free in Sand - This tinted moisturiser is stunning, it's the best tinted moisturiser I have ever tried, and it has a really good coverage for tinted moisturiser. It's fantastic and feels very light and I wear it everyday to school.

MAC Something Special Creamblend Blush - I received this in a giveaway from daydream amy for her 100 follower giveaway, she is one of my favourite bloggers and I think her blog is just amazing! Anyway, this blush really is awesome, I like the colour more than my MAC Ladyblush, it's a little more orange toned which I prefer for my skin tone, I always wear it with my NYX blush in Peach which makes my perfect blush colour, I love it any wear this combo everyday to school.

Inglot Loose Translucent Powder in 211 - I've been using this with a blending brush to set my under eye and prevent my mascara/eyeliner for smudging. I learnt this awesome tip from makeuptips- tumblr. 

Benefit Erase Paste Concealer in Medium No.2 - I have mentioned this concealer, before but this is just showing that I always come back to this concealer. It's just so great for under the eyes and conceals great!

Tony Moly Gel Liner in Brown - This eyeliner was also in the prizes from daydreamamy's giveaway and I love it as well. She claims that it is better than the Bobbi Brown gel liners which I was thinking of getting. This gel liner is super creamy but doesn't smudge and stays on really well, I am in love with it.

Ardell Brow Sculpting Gel - I've started fixing my eyebrows this month. I haven't yet been brave enough to wax the bajillion of strays that I have on my eyebrows (reason why I don't tweeze) but I have trimmed them, and I set them with this. This is a really cheap brow setting gel (the Maybelline Great Lash Clear mascara is really hard to find in Australia) and it works great!

7. MAC ES Satin Taupe - I bought this eyeshadow back when I went to Australia, but despite all the hype, I never really hopped on the bandwagon. But I found a tutorial on YouTube by aleexandraaxo and I love the way that she uses this eyeshadow. I use to think I could just use it as a crease colour, but I always had other alternatives that I prefer, but I never thought of using the eyeshadow in this way. I also used it in a recent evening eye look tutorial. 

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara in Black Brown - I LOOOVE this mascara, I always use it on my bottom lashes or tinsy lashes on my upper lashes, and it's smudgeproof!

9. Prestige Eyebrow Definer in Black Brown - This is the first ever eyebrow pencil I have ever bought, it was recommended by makeuptips- again, and I love this! I feather it on my eyebrows for a really natural defined look.

Nail Kit - I was gifted this by my family friends in Sydney (I live in Melbourne) and when I first got it, I was younger and I didn't really know what to do with it. But now a lot of the things in this are super handy, and it's all in one cute butterfly mini 'folder'. It comes with nail clippers, eyebrow scissors (which came in handy when I started neatening up my eyebrows!), tweezers, some funny shaped mini spoons LOL and a nail file. 

11 & 12. 
Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot & Grapefruit - I've been loving one of these lipglosses with the next lipstick, it's a really cute natural look, and I like it more than my old Revlon Color Burst combo, but I can never pick between these two lipglosses, and they smell AMAZING!

Maybelline Pure Shine Lipstick in P12 - I got this in Hong Kong and I haven't seen it in Australia, but it is the most gorgeous angel pink! 

Clinique Superbalm Moisturising Gloss in Raspberry - This was definitely a surprise love, because my other Clinique lipgloss but it's a different type and it's super sticky, but this one is amazing, and is not sticky, and the colour works great with the next product.

FlourishBathBody Glossy Lip Tint in Azalea - I have shown this before but I just love this combo! This is the combo that I always keep in my bag, because I always accidentally forget to put on or don't have time to put on lip products. This combo is just a really nice and flattering colour for my lip and skin colour and I LOOOOOVE it!

16 & 17.
Botanical Creations Waterless Hand Cleanser in Vanilla Brown Sugar and Pink Grapefruit - If you're from America, then you probably know that everyone has Bath & Body Works scented hand sanitisers, and I want them so much, but unfortunately we do not have them in Australia, but recently Priceline released scented hand sanitisers, and I've been using them all the time, and today I just also bought the Peach one. 

Sugar Baby Pink Grapefruit Fragrance de Luxe - This perfume oil is awesome, and as you know, I looove the smell and taste of Grapefruit, so this is just awesome smelling haha. 

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Daily Face Sunscreen Lotion SPF30+ Oil Free - I finally found an Oil-Free face sunscreen with high SPF.

Kit Design Award Pomegranate & Pink Grapefruit Lotion - I voted in the designs for the new release of the Kit lotion so I received a free sample. I loooove this lotion! It feel's really light and non greasy but it is so moisturising, and it smells fantastic! Pomegranate and Pink Grapefruit are my two all time favourite fruit smelling scents, which is such a coincidence. 

Wow, 20 favourites, what a coincidence.
