August Beauty Favorites


It's that time again, monthly favorites! While I've added quite a few new staples to my routine (see these two posts HERE & HERE); I figured I'd add in my absolute go-to's this month and a few extra items I've been using regularly but haven't shared yet. 

1] NARS Sheer Glow Foundation : This one should be no surprise, it was mentioned in a recent blog post and has been in popping up all month in my Instagram snaps. The color match for this flawless and I love it's medium coverage. Even though it says sheer, it definitely does a great job of evening out my skin. It also gives a great glow without looking shiny.

2] NARS Eyeshadow Pencil in Iraklion : This is one that took some warming up to for me. I actually don't use this one as an eyeshadow but instead as a liner. I've been loving lining my bottom lashes with this little guy. It's light so it doesn't give a super heavily lined look, but has shimmer in it to help open up my eyes.

3] Anastasia Brow Brush #12 : This is actually my first Anastasia Beverly Hills product. I really wanted a brow tool that also had a spoolie end on it. The brush itself is a little thicker than my MAC brush and also a little sturdier which is nice. 

4] L'Oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Concealer : This was an end of August purchase but man, I cannot live without this stuff! It seriously gives an incredibly airbrushed effect and does an insane job of covering my dark circles. It's lightweight as well and doesn't get cakey or crease on me. 

5] L'Oreal Paris Miss Manga Mascara : This product (like many other reviews before mine have said) is one that I didn't quite like at first. After the product dried out for a while though I really began liking the formula. This has been on constant rotation with my L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara. This mascara tends to give me a more "fluttery" lash and less of a thick, clumpy look.

6] H&M Candle : My one non-beauty favorite is definitely this H&M candle. While it doesn't have a scent I just can't get over the packaging! Everything that is currently in H&M is amazing. I snagged a couple of copper basket, a fur pillow, and this pretty candle the last time I was in there. (And it was all so inexpensive!) Candles such as this one usually cost a ton, but this one was around five dollars. I'll definitely be grabbing more!
