August 2016 Beauty Favourites
I honestly can’t believe that it is September next week, it seems like it was June only yesterday. But this was an absolutely amazing month, and here are the beauty products that really stood out to me.
Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in 738 Royal Plum (review and swatches)
Clarins revamped their Joli Rouge line (as seen here), and now it looks even more chic, and the formula feels even more comfortable. Royal Plum is the shade to die for, it is a must have for Autumn! I have to confess that oxblood was the colour of the month for me. Max Factor Glossfinity Nail polish in 185 Ruby Fruit was the shade I wore on my toes all month long.
My love for Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) is still going strong. Please excuse me for mentioning everywhere I possibly can but this was honestly the product of summer 2016 for cheeks. Get it if you can still find it.
YSL Faux Cils Mascara
This mascara does not need an introduction, it creates incredibly voluminous, full and thick lashes. I am also a sucker for that beautiful gold packaging.
Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eye Pen
My eye liner of choice in the last several months, it is very easy to use, stays on for the whole day and gives an intense black effect.
Elemental Herbology Nutritive Lip Complex
To be honest, I did not like it all that much at first because of the relatively strong herbal-y scent (and taste) but now I am a huge fan, and this is the only lip balm I am currently using. It really moisturises and nourishes the lips. I use it every single evening before going to bed.
In July I’ve purchased three mini products, and two of them became favourites in August. I haven’t tried the dry shampoo yet.
OGX Beauty Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner
I wanted a travel-friendly conditioner, and when I saw this one in the shop, I had to get it after reading all the raves about the range. And, I have to admit that now I get all the hype. It smells incredible and leaves the hair really soft, smooth and glossy. Several people complimented my hair after this conditioner.
Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray
I’ve wanted a small bottle of some kind of volumizing hair product, and this seemed like a great option. And it is amazing, I personally find that it does add volume but doesn’t make my hair look dry out and crusty, as some sea salt sprays tend to do. Big thumbs up from me.
Daniel Sandler Blusher Brush (as seen here)
I am actually surprised that I have never mentioned this brush in my month favourites, as it is one of the best and most frequently used brushes from my collection, I love it very much. It is incredibly soft and the shape is great for adding a touch of blush or bronzer to the face.June 2016 Beauty Favourites
