August Favourites

August Favourites

So much happened in August even though it felt like it went so quickly! I finally turned 18, I got my results and found out what I’m doing next year, I went to Devon with my best friend, spent a day in Manchester with my mum and have done quite a bit of shopping! But in between all of that there have been a few products that I have really been loving.

Clinique Anti-blemish solution
This is more of a rediscovery, but I stopped using this for a bit (no idea why) and this month I started using it again and I have just fallen back in love with it! My skin was started to go a bit crazy earlier in the month but I really feel like this has already cleared up my skin. Don’t want to stop using it again, shame it is on the pricier side though!

Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
The only concealer that I had before this was the Collection one. And while I do love that I was starting to find it a bit too drying round my eyes. I picked this one up after my best friend recommended it to me and I am just in love with it. The coverage is so good and it is really moisturising at the same time which is great for under the eyes.

Eyeko Black Liquid Eyeliner
I actually got this not too long ago as a freebie in a magazine (can’t rememeber which!) but I only started using this after my Maybeline liquid eyeliner started to run out and I actually think I like this one more. I’m kinda rubbish at liquid eyeliner but this one just makes it so easy without you having to make the line too thick. It is really really black and stays on forever as well! What’s not to love?

Vasaline Spray and Go Body Moisturiser
You know you are obsessed with a product when you have to have all the different scents! Yes, that’s right! My sister got me the third and the last one that I don’t have for my birthday! This one smells really natural and it just as moisturing and amazing as the other two. Just now I have a full set!

Topshop Lipstick – Mink
This is the second Topshop lipstick that I’ve got and I just can’t get over how amazing they are. This colour is a nude/brown that looks really natural but still adds something extra to a makeup look. I really love these types of shades for Autumn and Winter so I know I am going to be wearing this for many months to come.

O.P.I Nail Envy Nail Strengthener
I picked this up months ago in Boots while it was on a very good offer and as soon as I started using it I just loved it. But only a couple of weeks after I bought it I misplaced it/my sister or mum stole it. And when I went back to Boots to replace it the offer was over and I couldn’t bring myself to spend nearly £20 on a nail strengthener. However when I got back from my holiday this month this had magically found its way back to my desk! I’ve been using this everyday since to help my nails grow and stay strong. I really suffer from splitting nails and I find that this is one of the only products that can really help.

Hope you enjoyed my monthly favourites post. I’d love to hear in the comments below some of the products that you have been loving as well. Hope you have all had a lovely summer. Bring on Autumn! xx

    Love the Vaseline spray & go. Was gutted to have missed the eyeko eyeliner for only £2 in the glamour magazine of June, I think. Such a bargain! And I've heard great things about it. X
