August 2013 Favorites

August 30, 2013

Welcome back beauties!


It’s that time of the month again….monthly FAVORITES! I really enjoy watching YouTube videos or reading different blogs on what everyone else has been loving for the past month. You can always find new items and just get a sense of the persons beauty style.

So I have for you, my favorites for this month. Enjoy! šŸ™‚

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation

I’m going to be honest and say that when I first purchased this, I hated it! I wanted to love it so bad, but it just wasn’t working for me. After purchasing the Benefit Porefessional Primer, I gave this foundation another go-around, and I loved it!! It just seems to work much better for me with a primer.
It’s a long-wearing foundation and it works great on oily skin.

Nude’tude Palette

As I’ve been working on my new Color Combo series with this palette, I have noticed I reach for this baby on a daily basis. I love it, you can do any eye look using this palette alone.

Chella Dazzling Dark Brown Eyebrow Pencil

I got this in my Ipsy bag this month, and have been using this like crazy since it came in. It has a nice small point to it, making it really easy to line my eyebrows. I will definitely be purchasing this soon.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Ransom

This bad boy is a dream!!! So creamy, it goes on like butter! I want one in every shade!! I highly, highly recommend these eye pencils.
I love this color, it’s a purple shade, but more on the brighter side. Very pretty, makes green and hazel eyes stand out!
And, Urban Decay is having a sale on their website!!

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Fruit Punch

I had never tried Milani lipsticks, until I heard Nicole Guerriero on YouTube rave about them. I went into Walgreens with the intention to purchase this one and another color, which they didn’t have, so I bought this one. I love it, the color is awesome, very rich and creamy.

EOS Lip Balm in Pomegranate Raspberry

Love these little balms, they are so moisturizing and smell delicious! And how cute are they? My mom’s dog sees these and wants to play with them sometimes! šŸ™‚

ELF Makeup Mist & Set Spray

 I really like this setting spray, because it’s so refreshing. I actually don’t find that it makes much of a difference on me, as far as making my makeup last longer; but it’s nice to spray when you’re out and about in the heat.

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear Nail Polish in White On
*not pictured*

I think I wore this nail polish everyday of the month! šŸ™‚ White nail polish is so fresh, yet glamorous and chic.

There you have it! This month I didn’t have many favorites because I honestly didn’t wear a ton of makeup this month.

What were your faves this month? I’d love to know! šŸ™‚   

Until next time! Have a great Labor Day weekend!


PS–You can find some of my favorites in my aStore!

-College football starts today! Woop woop! I’m a big college football fan. šŸ™‚


-I went with a simple eye but BOLD lip today. May do a FOTD post on Instagram


-I’ve had horrible eye allergies for the last few days.


-Funny story: I was singing just a few minutes ago, and I guess my moms dog, Sophie, didn’t like it. She barked at me, and gave me this “look.” šŸ™‚ Even she thinks my signing is awful!
