August Favourites

Not too many favourites this month but these are the products I’ve been reaching for most.

1. Cien Hand Cream – This is a product from Lidl and I really like it. It makes your hands feel so soft and doesn’t leave them feeling greasy at all. It smells of almonds it’s lovely. I keep this tube in my handbag and will repurchase it when it runs out.

2. Mac Fix + – This has been a life saver this month. My makeup always looks so fresh and dewy after using this. I find this is one of those products you use loads for a while then forget about it again until you re discover it. But I am loving it ATM

3. Germaine de Capuccini foundation  - I love this foundation, I bought it from my local spa and it has the smoothest finish. It’s a great foundation for the summer as it has SPF 30 and is really lightweight. I can’t seem to find it for sale anywhere online, sorry.

4. Avon nail experts 24k gold strength - My nails have needed a little TLC this month & so I’ve been using this under my nail polish (when i remember to put it on). My nails are looking like they’re in a better condition and are not so brittle.

5. Mac Bombshell Lipstick – this is a lovely pink lippy with a slight gold shimmer.  I love it & have been wearing it most days this month. I’ve a whole post about it here if you want to read it.

6. Me Me Me Precision Eye Definer  - this is a lovely black liquid eyeliner.  You can achieve such a precise line with this and it lasts all day. I’ve enjoyed putting this to the test this month.

7. Mac Naked Lunch Eyeshadow – This is a fab all over the lid colour. It looks soft and makes your eye look bright. It’s a staple colour in my collection and I wear it all the time.

8. Avon Golden Glamour Blush Duo – This is so pretty. It makes me look really healthy and fresh-faced (well to an extent). You have a highlighter and a brilliant pink blush in this. So you get two great products in this. Again I have written a review of this here.

What have been your favourite products this month? Oh & do you like our new layout / look? We still have a few small issues to iron out & tweak but I think its looking fab :o

    Naked Lunch is my go to MAC eyeshadow and I’ve been using it for the last couple of weeks as my go to eye look because its so pretty. I think I have that Avon blush too somewhere and I absolutely loved it but I cant find it, may have to repurchase x

    Such lovely favourites! I’m so trying that Lidl hand cream too.
    Naked Lunch looks gorgeous, I should buy more luxury brands sometimes rather than lots and lots of cheap ones.
