Garnier tinted anti-dark circles roll-on concealer. I just love the convenience of this product. Just roll a tiny amount on your dark circles and gently blend it in with your ring finger and it covers up pretty well. I got it in the shade fair.
Calvin Klein tempting glance eyeshadow in #106 sandstone. I wore this a lot since I got it in July. This shade is very versatile because its matte finish. I use this in my crease, I use this all over the eye lids and I also use this as a brow powder sometimes. This is a pricey product but I actually got this in a sale with more than half off. Though I think I won't be repurchasing this mainly because of its original price and similar colours are fairly easy to find.
Maybelline the magnum volum' express in waterproof black. This does not smudge at all. For me I'm really fussy about mascaras because I will not use ones that are not waterproof and I need them to stay all day. For some reason eyeliner and mascara are the only things that budge for me (eyeshadow doesn't really crease on my lids) so I think finding good eyeliners and mascaras are on the top of my list compared to eyelid primer or face primer. This also holds curl very nicely. I had this when I was still only wearing glasses and at the end of the day my lashes would still be curled.
Natural collection's juicy lips in Turkish Delight (for some reason this specific shade is not sold online). Although I'm a huge fan of buying lip products, it isn't very often that I put on anything except lipbalm. However, I find myself always reaching for this as this is a 'my lips but better' shade. It has the slightest bluish shimmer to it and it looks really subtle on the lips. It taste and smells amazing, I would say it smells like strawberry ice cream but maybe it's suppose to smell like Turkish delight?? This is priced at just £1.99 in Boots. I think this will soon become my go-to lip colour/product.
colour lash all day lasting mascara in #11 clear. Unlike some other clear mascaras that I've used in the past (Jordana & Natural Collection) this actually holds my brow hairs in place keeping my brows looking polished. Again this is an affordable product. I chose to find a photo of a new product instead of my one because I used mine over brow pencil a few times and it now looks a bit gross so I decided not to be showing in on here
Blistex medicated mint balm. This really does the job. It's moisturising but it doesn't leave a greasy feeling either. I am not a fan of the shine that lipbalms give to the lips but this does not have that so I'm very impressed. Another good thing is that it gives your lips a bit of a tingling sensation since it is mint scented. I love it for another reason-it's affordable too!
That's it for my August favourites. Until next time, take care. xoxo Jess
