August Favorites!

Hey lovlies, I'm going to be sharing my August favourites with you, how crazy is it that summer is over already? But the most exciting season is yet to come: FALL!! Come on everyone loves fall and I'm super excited to start shopping for new fall clothing and make-up! Okay I'm rambling on, let get started on my favourites.

Make-up favourites first! 
Essence Soft Touch Mousse in matte ivory : I absolutely adore this foundation/mousse. I love the way it applies so nicely to my skin and how it lasts for hours. It's in a small glass pot which is handy of your make-up bag so its very travel friendly. It does exactly what it says and leaves my skin which a matte finish that doesn't look cakey or dried out. Honestly, where could you go wrong for €5? I will definitely be running out to get more when I finish this one.

NYC Sky Rise Lengthening Mascara: I've been on a mascara craze this month trying out all different kinds or drugstore mascara so I figured I'd give this one a shot seeing as it was really affordable and sounded good. And I'm glad I did, I love the way this mascara transforms my eyes and really holds a curl. It doesn't smudge like many other mascaras usually do. 

Urban Decay Naked Basics Pallet:  I know many of you have probably heard of this pallet multiple times which is one of the reason I bought it and I'm so glad I did. I absolutely love it, I love the colors and how they're so pigmented. It has definitely been my go to pallet over the past month. It makes creating a neutral eye or a smokey eye so much easier.

Sleek Pout Paint in the color Minx: I received this sample lip stain in my July Glossybox and I fell in love instantly when I used it. The color is so pretty, its a light neutral pink which is perfect for an everyday look. No doubt I will buy the full size version.

Nicka K lipstick in the color Glorious Pink: I sort of took a chance when buying this lipstick as I have never tried any of Nicka K cosmetics before but I'm happy I did. It is a light baby pink color that gives a light payoff on your lips. I purchased this off the website ikatehouse

Skin care favourites: 

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Facial Wash: I've only been using this for a short while but I can tell already that I love it. Its so refreshing and makes my skin feel great. It doesn't break me out and really does wake me up on early mornings. I love the little bubbles in it because it really feels like they thoroughly clean my skin and the smell of it is glorious.

Simple Facial Toner: I've been using this for quite some time now and I really can't see myself using anything else because this does the job so well. It removes any excess dirt and make-up on my skin leaving me fresh. It doesn't irritate my skin and leaves me oil free. What's not to love about it?

Simple Eye Make-up Remover: Because I'm such a mascara and eyeliner lover I need something to remove it and this does the job perfectly. Its strong enough to remove even waterproof mascara but gentle enough not to irritate my eyes. Its also fragrance free which I like about it because who really wants to be walking around with their eyes smelling weird?!

Johnson's 24hr Day Cream: I bought this as sort of an impulse buy a couple of weeks ago and as you can see from the picture I have it almost gone! I really like this moisturiser in this morning because it soothes my skin and gives it the hydration it needs for the day plus it has SPF 15 in it too which is awesome!
