Monthly Favourites | August

Monthly Favourites | August

It baffles me a great deal that we are already heading into September - how is that possible? It literally doesn't seem like 5 minutes since this year was beginning and now shops are already preparing for Christmas, it's just insane. Anyways, this month has been a good month for discovering new products - i went a little online shopping mad last month so I've been testing all those products out and i've found some new favourites.

Essence Lashes Go Wild Volume Mascara

Essence Lashes Go Wild Volume Mascara

Have you ever picked up a mascara just because the packaging really intrigued you? This is kind of what happened here with the Essence Lashes Go Wild Volume Mascara*, i really liked that the packaging was a squeezy tube - i don't really know why, because i think the design on it is a little gimmicky but the actual squeezy tube just really drew me in. It's a bit of a silly reason just judge something based on it's packaging but thankfully my curiosity paid off and this is actually a great mascara.

So Susan Dual Brow Powder

So Susan Dual Brow Powder

My collection of brow products is quite limited so i was very happy to see this So Susan Dual Brow Powder* in my July Love Me Beauty Box as I'm always keen to try more brow products and find the one that works the best for me.

Heart & Home Mini Candles

Heart & Home Mini Candles

I absolutely love burning candles especially on an evening when I'm ready to wind down and relax. I recently used up my ESPA Restorative Candle and was in need of some new ones so when i was kindly offered to try some Heart & Home Mini Candles* there was no way i could refuse.

Essence Blush Up Powder Blush in Heatwave

Essence Blush Up Powder Blush in Heatwave

When i first saw this Essence Blush Up Powder in Heatwave* i just had to try it as i thought it looks like the perfect blush shade for spring/summer.

Old Wives Tail Hair Growth Oil Treatment

Old Wives Tail Hair Growth Oil Treatment

Ever since i cute my hair short back in January I've been pining for my long hair back so when i was contacted by Old Wives Tail to see if I'd like to try one of their hair oils i jumped at the chance especially when i saw that they did one to help with hair growth which is the Melado Organic Hair Growth Oil Treatment*

Real Techniques Modern Natural Make Up Kit

Real Techniques Modern Natural Make Up Kit

I got super excited when i saw that Sam & Nic has released some palettes in their Real Techniques line and I'm actually really surprised that there has barely been any reviews of them, i thought they would have been a really popular topic on beauty blogs. The website that i ordered this from was an American one which actually put me off ordering for a while but one night when i was feeling rather sorry for myself, i decided to order it in an attempt to cheer myself up.

Essence CC Cream

Essence CC Cream

CC Creams have never been something that have really appealed to me so I've never really bothered to try them. Whilst i was at the Essence Launch i decided to pick one up the Essence All-In-One CC Cream* to try whilst i had the opportunity to do so.

Most Used Pink Lip Products

Most Used Pink Lip Products

Like many beauty bloggers I'm sure, i have an ever-growing collection of lip products varying in shades, formulas and finishes. One of my most worn shades is pink; it's my go to everyday shade and also a great colour to pair with a bolder eye look when you want a more dressed up look. So in honour of my most worn shade, i thought id share with you some of my most worn pink lip products.

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Hollywood

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Hollywood

The OFRA Long Lasting Lipstick was one of the goodies that came out of July's Love Me Beauty Box and i honestly never expected to like it half as much as i do. Up until getting this Love Me Beauty Box I'd never heard of the brand OFRA Cosmetics but i definitely want to try some more items.
