My August 2013 favorites!

Hey guys!

Can't believe August is over! Went by so quickly! Today I'll show you my favorite products for the month of August - and will review them briefly.

1. Maybelline Expert Eyes Moisturising Eye Makeup Remover - this is for waterproof makeup and I like it a lot. It's so much easier to remove any kind of mascara and it does not burn your eyes at all.
2. Lorac PRO palette - this is such a versatile eyeshadow palette, it has 8 matte and 8 shimmery eyeshadows and not all of them are neutral - for example, you have a burgundy and purple colors. The shadow quality it amazing, they are super soft ant have a buttery feel to them. The do have some fallout just because they are that pigmented, but if you tap the brush off before applying, which I always do, you'll have no problem at all.
3. Almay Clear Complexion Concealer + Treatment gel - this gives great coverage and is an exact match to my skintone at the moment. I mostly use the concealer part, which has 0,6% Salicylic Acid, which is great if you use the concealer over any spots you might have. The treatment gel has 1,08% Salicylic Acid.
4. Covergirl Outlast 3in1 foundation - love this for its staying power and it matches my skintone at the moment pretty well too. It's medium coverage which I really like and it has SPF. Great packaging too - love the pump!
5. Rimmel Stay Matte powder - keeps me matte for longer than any powder I own at the moment! Great for touch-ups.
6. NYX blush in Amber - love the color, it's so pretty and gives the cheeks a nice healthy flush of color! Been using this religiously for the month of August. Not going to lie - I'm ready to move on onto something else now, haha! Still love it, though.
7. Clean&Clear dual action moisturizer - I use this every single day and it's a great favorite of mine - I even have a backup waiting for me once I finish this bottle, haha! It's oil-free and has again, Salicylic Acid in it so it helps to prevent any blemishes and it moisturizes at the same time! Great stuff!
8. EOS lipbalm - all time favorite lipbalm, keeps my lips moisturized! And I love the strawberry smell in this one!
9. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque - it's gentle enough so I can use it every day! Love how clean my skin feels after using it, and I do believe it helps with my needy skin to keel it clear.
10. Maybelline The Rocket Mascara - been using this one a lot this month, love the formula, it makes my lashes looking longer and thicker than they are! I'm using a non-waterproof version and it does not smudge even on a hot, humid day.
11. Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - what can I say, I love my Maybelline mascaras! This one is great for curling my lashes and making them very thick! Definitely has the Falsies effect on me. I love layering it with The Rocket mascara too!
12. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze - I believe it's now called something different, but love this color on green eyes! It has great staying power and the color is pretty. It also makes a great base for any shadow I have.
13. Catrice Gel Eyeliner in Black Jack with Jack Black - what a name for a simple black gel eyeliner... I bought it this month and it became a great favorite of mine - whenever I'm using gel eyeliner I'll go with this now even though I own more! Stays well, is pretty rich in color and did not dry yet! Plus, it's very affordable!
14-15. Rimmel Scandaleyes pencils in Black and in Nude - love these two! They are waterproof so I mostly use them in my tight line and waterline. It's creamy and well pigmented!

So these are my favorite products of the month! It wasn't that hard to decide - I used these a lot in the month of August. What are your favorites? Would love to know!

  3. do you have any other blogposts showing the lorac eyeshadow palette? And is it expensive? I'm intrigued!



    1. Hi Holly!

      I actually do, showing Lorac PRO in action right here: and I'm planning to do more looks, because I love playing with it! It retails for $42 so it's quite on the expensive side. But so worth the money IMO!

      I'll check out your blog, thanks for the link!
