August Favorites

August 29, 2011

Well August is almost over (It literally flew by, right?) and I had a few favorite products in this month that I thought I would share. I rarely ever do these kind of posts, I'm either always too late to post or just never get around to it so I'm excited to do a post. 

1.) Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes - I did full review of these already, so you can see that here if you missed it. I'm still loving these and I'm almost all out. One thing I have noticed since I use them everyday, is that they are a tad drying. Right after I use a wipe, I put on a face primer and I don't notice at all after.

2.) Senna Cosmetics Eye Color in Lavender Smoke - This is one of Senna's newest eyeshadows for Fall and I have been loving this color. It's a matte dark lavender, and I have been using this for my crease color. It gives me depth and color for a daytime look without looking overdone. Great color to add to a neutral eye! I will have swatches and a full review on this shadow in a future post.

3.) Tarte Cosmetics Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in Exposed- I seriously cannot get enough of this blush. Since it is more of a brown colored blush I use this as a contour and it makes a huge difference in my usual makeup routine. I did a review post here.

4.) MAC Paint Pot in Painterly - My favorite eye base of all time. Such a great neutral color that I can wear alone, or with shadows over it and I know they will never crease.

5.) MAC Select Cover-Up Concealer in NW20 - I usually use the Select Moisturecover Concealer, but I needed something with more coverage. So I decided on trying out this concealer and it's been great. It has a medium coverage which is exactly what I wanted. 

6.) MAC Creamsheen Glass in Natural Flare - I had no intention on buying this lip gloss. Seriously, the lady at MAC gave me the wrong color, I had asked for a color shade. But by the time I got home I figured I would just keep it and see how I like it. So glad I did because I continuously have it in my purse. I love how it's nude, so it kind of goes with everything.

7.) MAC Lipstick in Bombshell - This is one lipstick that I had completely forgot that I owned and have fallen back in love with it this month. Bombshell is a frosty pink color that gives me a lovely color to my lips. 

8.) MAC Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Tea Ceremony - I just recently bought this one and I adore this lipstick. I love how they are sheer lipsticks but with shine. The best of a lipstick and lipgloss in one without any fuss. Please let me know if should do a full review on this lipstick. I plan on buying more colors this week, so if you want to see swatches let me know!

9.) Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Face Primer - Okay, I know I have talked about this primer many times before, but I seriously can't start my face makeup in the morning without applying this first. It makes everything last all day and night. Love.

10.) Maybelline FIT Me Foundation in 120 - I have used this foundation all throughout Summer and it has been amazing. Holding up against humidity and super hot Summer days, it is a miracle foundation. I have done a full review on this before here, only the color that I reviewed was wrong, same results apply.

So there are my August Favorites! Hope you enjoyed!
