August Favourites!

August was a funny month for me product wise. I've worn far less make up than usual due to the fact that i have had a bit of a tan and I've just not felt like wearing as much lately.

The following products have been real staples that i have relied on for quick no fuss grooming which are easy to use and fail safe for me.

August Love Lot!

Perfect Packages!

The above 3 products are great for travelling as they come in cute little sizes that can't spill and make a mess.

Rose & Co Balm of Roses: This is such an amazing product that retails at around £3 so cheap as well. It is a gently fragranced super moisturising balm that smells of freshly cut roses. It's one of those multi purpose products that i use on lips, cuticles, heels, elbows. Any dry patches etc.
I even use it on the ends of my hair sometimes to control frizz and did i mention it smells beautiful?

Lush LOVE Solid Perfume: I can't get enough of this solid perfume. It smells just like the Lush Fizzbanger bath ballistic. The fragrance is a warm slightly sweet almost foodie smell which has hints of cinnamon and apple and something else that i can't quite put my finger on. Perfect for autumn and quite unusual.
This lasts really well on the skin too which is quite unusual for a solid fragrance.

MOR Lip Delight Lychee Flower: This has to be THE most amazing lip balm ever. If you have never tried MOR products i urge you to treat yourself. This little tin of gorgeousness smells like freshly picked Lychee's and is the smoothest silkiest lip balm that Ive ever used. It keeps my lips super soft and leaves a pretty sheen as well.

No Fail Makeup!

NYX Gloss Natural: This is my " My lips but better colour". I can wear this with little or no makeup on and it still looks great. I love the fruity smell and it has a good lasting ability for a gloss.

 NYX Natural Gloss!

Nars Penny Lane: I got this in a blog sale after wanting it for ages and I'm really glad i managed to get my hands on this. On my medium skin it is a really natural looking cream blush that looks just as good on bare skin as it does on top of foundation. This blends like a dream and just adds a bit of colour without looking made up.

Liz Earle Skin Tint Beach: If Liz Earle was here right now I'd kiss her. I have finally found my HG tinted moisturiser. I raved about this when i reviewed it in the medium colour but the Beach shade is perfect on me and i can't get enough of it. The glow and little bit of colour it gives me is exactly what i want in a tinted moisturiser and it gives me that bit of coverage i need whilst still letting my natural skin show through. 10/10

  4. Ooh that Nars cream blusher looks interesting, I didn't know that they did a cream blusher, I thought they just did the powder blushes with naughty names!! I will definitely have a look at the cream ones next time I'm near a Nars stockist. Jude xx @jadlgw
