Monthly Beauty Favourites: August 2012 Favourites


( Apologies for the lighting, I decided to take my camera out into the garden during a small glimpse of sunshine)

August is now over which means one thing - school is upon me. Fortunately this month I have discovered more favourite products than last month. Onto the favourites...

17 Maximum Volume Mascara - I've been using this mascara for months now and it is only recently that I have realised how I like this. It adds length to your lashes and thickens them without clumping.

MAC Studio Finish Concealer - Over the month of august I found myself needing more coverage on my blemishes and this does the trick. This is drying so I won't use it anywhere near my undereyes ( error has already been made) however for my spots this helps to cover them up and dry them out slightly.

MAC Bare Study Paint Pot - This alongside my frontcover eyeshadow = eyeshadow that lasts all day without creasing. I also have loved wearing this on its own , although it does crease on its own, or with a matte eyeshadow over the top in my crease.

Boots Botanics Face Mist - I love this as a novelty product really. I am not sure if this has made a difference to my skin but I love to use this after my cleanser to remove my last traces of makeup and my skin is left very soft and smooth.

Garnier Dark Spot Corrector ( Review to come) - I love this as a moisturiser. It leaves my skin hydrated all day and is very lightweight.

Technic Natural Lashes - This is actually a clear mascara for your eyelashes but I use this for my eyebrows. I use this to comb through my brows and I can rely on this to set them for the rest of the day.

Front Cover Eyeshadow (Shades:Silver Dollar (White),Powder Puff (Champagne),Frosted Almond (Lighter Brown),Copper Coin (Brown/Purple) - I love these eyeshadows, they are shimmery, pigmented, long lasting , do not crease and blend effortlessly - worth checking out online on the Boots website or larger Boots ( if they still have FrontCover counters)

Garnier Oil Free BB Cream - Need I have to say anything - this product has been featured far too many times on here. Its amazing, lightweight but with excellent coverage - an overall great product!
