August Favourites




After adopting a rather unexpected irritated scalp I decide to use the Kérastase Sensidote Dermo-Calm Shampoo. Pretty much after the first use my week of itching (glamorous I know) my scalp felt so soothed. My hair felt light and soft whilst the smell was minty and cucumber, which was rather calming after so much irritation.

The polish that has had rather many compliments has been Essie Bikini So Teeny . This is one of my favourite summer polishes and really compliments tanned fingers!

It seems that I've had rather a brow lovin' month. With them seriously needing some TLC I've tried my best to keep them tamed. The Benefit Gimme Brow has been a firm favourite since it's purchase a while back. It is just so easy to comb this through and it gives such a natural finish. I really do blooming love this! The next brow product has only been a recent purchase but I have been using it every day since. The Soap and Glory Archery 2-in-1 brow pencil. This is seriously replacing the Hourglass brow pencil. The size of the pencil is quiet small and the wax consistency is rather creamy meaning you can really create a natural brow hair type of finish. And the fact it's £8 makes it even better.

Nars blush in the shade Deep Throat hasn't not graced the presence of my cheeks since June. It has been the perfect peachy-pink pick me up. I'm seriously going to miss this once during the winter months!

What I wore #5




Nearly everyday now I have been reaching for the Diorskin Nude BB cream. Stupidly I forgot to include the base in the photo. This is has been my summer favourite. It's light texture makes it easy to blend into the skin and it gives my complexion that much needed oommph. It is the perfect companion to the application of Nars Deep Throat on my cheeks!

A new favourite is the new Soap and Glory Archery 2-in-1 pencil. It's a serious dupe for the Hourglass pencil with the spooley one end and a creamy wax stick the other. So far I think it may be better...

I'm guilty to say that I haven't shared my thoughts on the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette on here yet, mainly cause every other bblog raves about it. However, I have been using it so much recently. My current go-to shades at the moment are Mooner, as a base, and then the shimmer of Liar over the top. Of course an application of the L'Oreal Telescopic mascara is never amiss. 

If you're a regular over here then you will know my love for the Barry M Blink liquid eyeliner. I wont say much as I feel like I talk about it every other post. But seriously, try it. Along with my hero product, the Nars Creamy Concealer in Vanilla. I think I'd be lost without it. 

And finally a small pop of colour with Mac lipstick in Girl About Town

Favourite Drugstore Mascaras





So from the left we have the L'Oreal Telescopic. I was drawn to this one after Vivianna Does Makeup's constant hype. When I first saw the wand I will admit I thought why the hell does she love it so much. As you can see from the photo, I thought it seemed a rather lack-luster wand that just wasn't going to do much. But as they say, never judge a mascara wand by looks...Out of the three I would have to vote this one as my favourite - apologies for favouritism. It separates, it lengthens, it glosses each lash, it really just does a fantastic everyday job.  
9/10

In the middle, the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping.  I'm always surprised I don't hear more about this mascara.  I'll admit I bought this one as I thought it made your lashes longer the more you wore it...I think I was wrong. However, at the time when I was using this everyday I definitely noticed a difference with the condition of my lashes. They felt much thicker and conditioned and as a result applying mascara became an easier job. I reach for this one when I want some serious volume and thickening.  
7/10

Finally, Maybelline The Falsies, in the waterproof formula. This has been a favourite since school days.  The curved wand allows you to easily coat all your lashes, including those pesky inner corners, whilst creating some serious length and volume.

Night Time Moisturising


I think that part of my favourite time of the day is getting ready for bed. Verging on a little sad and boring I'm sure, but there really is nothing I love more than getting my 'night-time-skin-routine-ooooon'!  
So when I recently ran out of my Origins Night-a-mins there was nearly a breakdown in my bathroom.

After feeling rather spendy in the month of July (you can check that damage out here) I had to find a plan B to make myself not repurchase the rather pricey Origins tub of evening magic.  Seriously, it does wonders.

I've heard quiet a bit about the Super Facialist by Una Brennan range so I decided to choose the Rose Hydrate Peaceful Skin Night cream, mainly because it claimed to nourish, rejuvenate and protect. 

So far I've been quiet impressed. I definitely noticed a glow after application and it it provides a thorough moisturisation. It's quiet a thin texture which makes it very soothing and easy to apply and absorb into the skin. In the morning my skin still feels moisturised. The only thing is I seriously miss the smell of the Origins...Yes I know, I'm weird. I'm not a huge fan of the rose scent but I do suppose that is is 'calming'. For the price I'd definitely say this is worth it. However, I think Night-a-mins is my main love.

What are your favourite moisturisers?

Summer Nail Polish Favourites


Now we all know I'm a lover of blue nail polish. But these past few months I've seen a new me in my nail polish grabbing actions. Step aside blues I've been needing pinks and some hot corals.





So, lets start from pinky to thumb. Rimmel's Salon Pro in Cocktail Passion (the nail always contributes to whether I should buy it or not!) 

I wore this Bourjouis 1 second formula in Turquoise in my last video and realised how much I love this shade and formula. The bright turquoise blue colour is the perfect shade to compliment the summer tans whilst the formula is chip proof. And trust me when I say that as my polish usually lasts 2 days whereas this lasts me nearly a week!

Chanel Holiday will forever be on the luxury nail polish wish list, but I suppose who really needs after finding Rimmel  60 Second Formula in Sun Downer.  The brush is fantastic and the colour is so similar to holiday. 

Now I have to have a blue in there somewhere. And who doesn't love Essie Bikini So Teeny. Pale blue with sparkly bits in...this is love in a bottle. Enough said.

Finally Clinique Happy Heart is just the perfect summer heat coral. I will admit that I find this formula a bit of frustrating in terms of chipping so I prefer to use it as my pedicure colour.

What are your favourite summer polishes?
