August Favourites


Hello, everyone! Normally I`d get all nostalgic and start to wonder where the time has gone, but not now. Because I love Autumn and I`m so ready for Chelsea boots, big jumpers and Spiced Pumpkin latte everything. The only way I could become more of a cliche is fantasizing about Christmas (totally am by the way, but that`s beside the point). I`m not going to lie, summer used to be my favourite season right until I moved to England and got only 15 days of sunshine per year. Anyways, I should probably stop talking about seasons and focus on my Autumn favourites.

Let start with the Oil Control Fixing Spray from Makeup Revolution. I recently did a blog post where I professed my love for this product. It`s great at keeping the shine at bay and overall making my makeup look brand new even after an 8-hour shift. On that note, I also love the Sheer Loose Powder from Collection. It`s perfect for setting my under-eye makeup and does not look cakey at all. In case you were wondering I use both of these products without resembling a wax figure. I use the powder first and spritz the fixing spray as the last step.

After I discovered matte lipsticks there was no turning back. While the NYX ones continue to be my favourite, I`m pretty much obsessed with the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipsticks. Their formula is long-lasting, creamy and lightweight. The last product in the makeup category is the E.L.F. Shadow Lock Eye Primer. When I use it my eyeshadow does not crease as much and it does last for a longer period of time than normal. Granted, my eyes are pretty dry, so I don`t know if it will be as successful on someone with oily eyelids.
The next two products I`m going to talk about are a bit boring, but hey ho. While I love my baths, there`s no denying that a quick shower in the morning is all you need to feel energized. The Orange Cruse Bath&Shower Creme from Patisserie de Bain smells divine, exactly like oranges! The scent is so natural that I suspect real oranges might be involved and not just synthetic flavours. While we`re on the subject of shower gels, I also want to give a small shout-out to the Ted Baker Body Wash. This scent is more floral, which I don`t normally go for, but this I like. It also comes in the nicest packaging ever. At last, we have the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask which is a must-have product for everyone that has dry skin.

And that`s all folks! Let me know in the comments what you`ve been loving this month. Also, can you believe that next week it will be Autumn? Are you just excited as I am? Or do you wish you could have a bit of sunshine more?

  2. I love Patisserie de Bain. A couple of years ago, they did a special order for me and sent the products to the States. Their packaging is the cutest. Have you visited their shop? Would love to do so! HaHaHa Wasn't aware of the new orange scent. Sounds lovely.

  5. What shade of that powder? I used to have the translucent but it didnt work on me too well as it made my concealer look darker when it dried.

    1. It`s the translucent one, but it did not make any difference for me in terms of shade.

  7. The ELF primer sounds really good, and I was in the market for a new one anyway so will keep it in mind! I am looking forward to the Autumn collections in stores, I actually haven't brought any clothes all Summer because there just wasn't much choice. However, I'm not looking forward to the gale force winds, they were so bad last year! x

    1. Definitely try the ELF primer. I didn`t buy clothes in the Summer either, only towards the end I got some pieces that would go for Autumn as well.

  10. The Collection loose powder is so great, I use it anytime I wear foundation. Ooh I really want to try the Garnier mask, whenever I'm in Superdrug or Boots, I'm always tempted to try but I never pick it up haha. And girl, I agree! Can't wait for Autumn. xx
