August Loves

Yippeee August is over and you know what that means?? Yes another month closer to Christmas, oh I love that time of year. I have been reaching for some of my August Loves every single day, let me tell you more.

Weleda Skin Food
I must admit I initially purchased this because I read somewhere that Victoria Beckham loved it, there you go I have admitted it! I am glad I did though as its truly amazing and has worked wonders on my sons eczema. I would highly recommend you invest in this product, its fab to have in your collection.

Caudalie Divine Oil*
I use this oil in a few different ways, I do love a good multi use item. Its great for my hair and cuticles, I will certainly invest in another bottle once this has gone.

Neom Organic Hand Cream #Violet, Chamomile & Cedarwood
I honestly think this is the best smelling hand cream ever made. What i also like about this cream is the formula, it sinks into my hands instantly, leaving no greasiness at all. I find this especially good to use at work, I can apply to my hands and be typing again in a few seconds.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream*
In a few days Charlotte Tilbury will be launching her new beauty collection in Selfridges, I cannot wait to see all the products, I have no doubt that each item will be divine. I was lucky enough to be able to test Charlotte's Magic Cream, its the most beautiful nourishing cream. It smells glorious and reminds me of Creme De La Mer. Its a must have in my opinion.

Mac Face & Body C1 & N1
I am surprised to say this, but I am absolutely loving this foundation. I normally wear quite a high coverage base, but for some strange reason I wanted to try this. WOW I am totally sold, I now need to decide what shade to get???

Murad Skin Perfecting Primer #Dewy Finish
I found this in my draw, I have no idea where I picked this up?? Maybe a beauty box?? I have been wearing this under Mac face & body samples, again this is not the usual look I go for, leaning towards oily skin I normally run as far as I can from the dewy look! I love how this primer dries and leaves my skin feeling matte and ready for my foundation. I have tried a few different bases with this and they all apply lovely. I really want to try a Matte one to see how I like that finish.

Mac MSF #Porcelain Pink
This was my first MSF and I fell head over heels, thank you soooo Much Laura for introducing me to this beautiful product. I gently apply to the tops of my cheek bones, oh it's so pretty.

Tarte #Exposed
I still cannot believe I own this product, I dreamed about this day for months. I know that sounds silly but I did, and I was not disappointed. Its simply beautiful and I cannot wait to add more to my collection, Exposed is a little lonely on her own. Again thank you soooooo much Megan.

Mac Beauty Powder #Peaceful
I have owned this for years, I have no idea what the collection was?? But the packaging is a tiger print and sooo lovely, I have been reaching for this everyday recently. The colour is quite pale, this is perfect for my light skin tone.

Maybeleine Baby Lips #95 Strike a Rose
Again the lovely Megan sent me this in our recent swap, I have worn this every single day in the month of August, its the perfect shade for me.

Une Lip Toned Colour #L02
If I had to describe a Jen shade this would be it, I love your' lips but better' and all that jazz. The formula is so nourishing I will most certainly be adding a back up of this shade pretty soon.

Lancome Rouge in Love #322
This little cutie is from a Lancome gift set I picked up after Christmas, there was three mini lippies in the set and I paid just over a fiver!!! Hello bargain, this is my fave shade out of the three. I had actually forgotten about them, so they have seen no love, this will change now.

Une Blush #B03 Breezy Cheeks
I have worn this at least 2-3 times per week, its a creme to powder formula. I think the shade is super pretty and complements my skin tone perfectly. What I also love is the staying power, it lasts all day without the need for reapplication.

Wet & Wild Trio #335 Silent Treatment
Oh my, I cannot get over the last shade in this trio. I feel lost for words, its soooo nice, think taupe, pewter, lilac and a little shimmer. That all mixed up is what I am talking about, I NEED A BACK UP in my life, in fact may be two just to be safe.

Jenny beaded necklace
My sweet sons made me this for me. I love the little things they make me, I will keep them forever, they mean the world to me. I am so thankful for my precious son's they amaze me everyday and they are the best thing to happen to me.

What have you been using for the month of August? Please link me to your You Tube video's and Blog posts, I love to see what you are reaching for.

  3. Great batch of monthly favourites! I don't own anything by Tarte but I hope you get to add to your collection :) I also really love that UNE blush, don't think they sell that brand here.

    I just posted my own monthly favourites at :)

  4. I really want Exposed, its on my wish list next time I do a US order. I passed on picking up the Charlottes Magic Cream as I couldnt find a full list of ingredients but I will look instore-the rest of the collection tho I went a bit crazy on-I could never tell Mike the cost of it lol, I would be proper in the doghouse!
