August is one of my most favorite months, not only because it’s my birthday month, but I feel like most important things in my life happen around this time of the year. I normally do not share monthly favorites, only because I stick to my basic products and keep repurchasing them, until they discontinue or stop working for me. For the most part I have my holy grail products, but I do enjoy trying out new products, just like any other girl. If there’s anything you should know about me, it’s, even though I’m 25 now, I still get excited for my birthday like a 5 years old, Have you seen that viral video of a 102 years old lady, blowing out her birthday candles and her dentures fall out, yeah! I’ll be that lady when I’m old, if only I lived for that long, which I don’t want, to be completely honest. Just in case you haven’t seen, here’s the video:
HILARIOUSSSSS I KNOW !
Anyway, back to August favorites,
Shit’s about to get Fancy
Honestly, I only bought this little travel perfume bottle because it looked gorgeous. I didn’t need it at all, but that’s about 50% of the things I buy, I don’t need them(lol). I love it so so so so much, I’m not even travelling but I use this mini bottle instead of spritzing the perfume out of the actual perfume bottle. So Fancy ! Dah! #unnecessary but if it makes me happy, imma do it.
There’s no such thing as having too many lipsticks
True Mascara Potential
I have liked Maybelline Lash sensational mascara ever since I first tried it, BUT now it works like a dream for me, at this point it’s the perfect consistency between wet and dry that really holds up the curl and doesn’t clump up your lashes at all. LOVING IT !
Skincare ! because, PRIORITIES !
Recently I shared a post about my favorite daytime moisturizers, and it reminded me of a moisturizer that I used to really like as an everyday moisturizer, and with weather changing, the consistency works perfect for me, so I repurchased it and using it consistently. Plus you all know my love for face masks. There’s nothing that makes me feel more pampered than a face mask. Estee Lauder Clear difference face mask is perfect for combination/oily/acne-prone skin. Lancome Visionnaire Advanced skin corrector = EVERYTHING ! LOVE IT !
Soft & Smokey Wing
Lately I have been L O V I N’ soft and smokey winged eyeliner look, instead of black sharp wing. It looks very soft and pretty and I’m just enjoying a little bit of different look. I’m loving Essence long-lasting eye pencil “lucky lead” to create the look. It’s dark and intense but not harsh and bold, you get the intensity that you like, while keeping the softness of the look, if that makes any sense. You might have seen a video of me using it on my Instagram account or Facebook page. Plus it’s retractable, of course I love it.
Blush of Choice
This month I have been OBSSSSSESSSSSSEDDDD with SLEEK ROSE GOLD BLUSH. Have been wearing it with every single look.
Deodorant is not optional, it’s a MUST
I hoard deodorants. I still am totally obsessed with Dove Go Fresh, but I’m also loving Dove Cotton Dry deo.
Trend Worth Following
I’m not a “trendy” person at all, I do what I like, but there’re some trends which are absolutely worth following, like Dainty jewelry trend. I LOVE LOVE LOVE dainty jewelry, and as a mom, it is so much more convenient, like I feel dolled up, but basically it doesn’t feel like I’m wearing any jewelry and that WORKS FOR ME. I love how pairing these two, necklace and bracelet makes me feel like I’ve my shit together(lol), these are from H&M.
A woman is helpless, only while her nail polish is drying
Oh there’s nothing like a fresh manicure. I make sure I take some time out by the end of the night to do my nails every now and then. Estee Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer “GK CAVIAR” is the one I wore on my birthday and LOVED IT ! This color just reminds me of fall and winter, and I’m excited to wear it in coming colder months as well. The next nail polish is a very recent purchase, but absolutely loving it, totally throwing it in with the other faves, it’s L’Oreal 857 Chantilly Lace.
These’re all my faves from the month of August. What have you been liking lately and I should try ?
