August 2016 Favourites

I'm so glad I started doing favourite posts. I love writing them up. So soz if you hate them (not really I don't really care haha). This month seems to have been crazy busy. I'm hoping September is a bit quieter. Probably not though. Life with my family is always go go go. Never thought I'd say this as I'm a total sun worshipper summer girl but I'm kinda looking forward to autumn. Cosy jumpers are the best. Plus beanie weather means I don't have to do my hair.

Anyways here's what I've been loving this month along with the billions of pain au chocolats I ate in France

August 2016 Favourites

This is honestly my favourite thing this year. It's the best thing I have ever discovered whilst out shopping. I'm trying to cut down on my dairy and this makes up for the lack of frijj milkshakes in my life. It tastes like heaven. It's so hard to not drink the whole carton in a day. I've also managed to get my mum hooked on it and I made my brother try it without telling him what it was. He loved it and was then outraged when he realised it was my "weird" milk. Seriously go get some. You'll thank me.

August 2016 Favourites

Rosie For Autograph Transluscent Finishing Powder

When I got my sky internets I got a £100 M&S voucher which I used solely to buy makeup like the sensible adult I am. I needed a new powder and this was there so I just went for it and hoped for the best because why not? The packaging is a bitch to photograph (I may have ranted on twitter about damn mirrored packaging) but it's such a good powder. It leaves my skin feeling like silk and keeps everything in place. I use it for prepping my eyes for my eyeliner and it means that it doesn't budge. None of that smudging onto my upper lid business. Only downside is it smells a bit like old people toiletries.

Models Own Polish for Tans in Shades

This is a weird favourite. I hate Models Own polishes which sucks because they have an incredible colour range. I've tried various and they all chip so easily. Why is this in my faves you ask? The colour. It makes my tan look epic and I love it. I tried a different top coat this time and it fared better than usual so for that reason as well as making my tan look bitchin it made it to my faves. Also my mum was just happy I wasn't wearing black again - she hates it for some reason

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso

I think Stila lipsticks have made it to my favourites every month since I started doing them in June. I've fallen back in love with a red lip. It used to be all I wore and now it's back and I'm so happy. Red lip, winged liner and pyjamas/giant hoodie was always my go to look at uni. Beso is such a gorgeous red, its comfortable to wear and it lasts so well. It survived me shoving pizza hut into my face the other day. I may have to get this as well as my beloved baci in full size soon (review on the Eternal Love Set)

Illamasqua Precision ink Liner in Abyss

I did a full review on this the other day so I won't drone on but this eyeliner is life. Survived 40 hours and gives me fabulous wings. What more could you want?

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

This sucks for wings. It flakes off or smudges. Buuut it is perfect for your waterline. It's the only liner I ever use on my waterline and the staying power is incredible. Not quite Illamasqua precision ink but damn good for £7.99. I use this over UD Perversion most days. Also, the pot lasts forever. Like I should probably throw this one out it's that old but meh. It doesn't irritate my eyes so I'll live.

Lancome Advanced Génifique Serum

I got this adorable lil sample when I spent a fortune on makeup and moisturiser. I gave it a whirl not really expecting much but I love it. I whack it on in the mornings before doing my makeup and it feels awesome. It brightens my face and adds some needed moisture. So gutted I fell in love though because I'm not gonna be able to afford more *cries*.
