August Beauty Favorites


Hi, lovelies! I cannot believe August is nearly over, it has just flown by and so it is about time to do my monthly favorites. I am extremely excited to finally make one of those posts on my own, since they have always been my absolute favorite posts to read. :))

This month I haven't been wearing much makeup because it was insanely hot where I live and I was also on a seaside holiday where I hardy put anything on my face except sunscreen. So, I decided to include the five products that I've been reaching for most often in August.

Monthly Favorites

The first thing is my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in the color "Light". I love this product so much that I am planning on doing a separate post soon, reviewing it for you guys, but let me just tell you- it is amazing!

Maybelline Dream Freash BB Cream

For when I wanted a little bit more coverage I used Benefit's Erase Paste concealer. It's a really nice product that I user for covering up any blemishes I have, and also for brightening up my under eye area. It is easily blendable,with great coverage and it doesn't feel heavy on your skin. You just need to make sure that you use a teeny tiny bit of it, because a little product goes a really long way. Oh, and one more thing - I like to use a concealer brush with it, since it comes in a jar and it may be a bit unhygienic to apply it directly with your fingers.

The next thing is another face product and it is by Too Faced and it is their Pink Leopard Brightening Bronzer. I am usually not a huge fan of bronzers, but this month I find out that my body has gotten much tanner than my face (probably because I was wearing my floppy hat a lot lol) and so I definitely needed a little help to even the things out a bit. This is a great product in my opinion, it doesn't look muddy or orange on my skin and because of its the pink particles it kind of adds up as a blush, too. :)

Then for mascara, pretty much the whole month of August I've been using the Mayballine One By One Mascara in the shade Very Black. At the beginning of month I ran out of my "They Are Real" mascara by Benefit and I wanted to try out something new, so I decided to give this one a try. I quite like it. The formula is nice, it is more on the wetter side but not in a bad way, in my opinion, plus it's not clumpy. The color is the perfect solid dark black. I also love the wand - it separates my lashes really well and also it gives a certain amount of volume. The only downside to this mascara, I find, is that after 5-6 hours it starts smudging a little on my lower lash line, but not too much, so it's fine with me.

And the last thing I am really excited about is my lip gloss. I've been using like crazy my Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in the color 576, Sari Pink. It is just the perfect coraly pink color with tiny fuchsia shimmers in it - a color perfect for summer! :) The color is quite opaque and it applies very smoothly. Another thing I love about this lip gloss is that it is not sticky but at the same time it stays on your lips for hours. It feels super luxurious on the lips, too. I would definitely recommend checking it out. I know it is quite expensive but I think that such a great product is wort every penny. :)

So, those were my August favorites, I hope you enjoyed reading this post. :) 

Also let me know which are your monthly faves, I would love to know!
