August Favourites

I cannot believe we are into September already, this year has gone so fast! I haven't written a monthly favourites post yet - I had planned to for July but I did a weekly favourites at the beginning of the month so thought I would wait and start it off with my August favourites. So here goes...

My first favourite is this Collection nail varnish, which I actually reviewed a couple of days ago HERE. It is from the Lasting Gel Colour range and the colour is Pearl Shimmer. 

Next up is Dot, one of Marc Jacobs perfumes. I bought this last christmas when I went to New York and it is one of my favourites along with Lady Million by Paco Rabanne and Loverdose by Diesel. However over the last month I have found myself reaching for this a lot more as its a much lighter floral scent than the others. 

One thing I hate is cleaning my make up brushes when they're caked in foundation. I bought the No. 7 Make Up Brush Cleaner earlier in the year and it was well worth the money. Having started my new job this month, time has been limited and cleaning my brushes is not top of my to-do list! So I have used this much more and although its not as good as good old soap/shampoo and warm water its perfect for quickly cleaning the brush. 

L-R: MUA Power Pout in Broken Hearted & Bourjois Rouge Edition in 02 Beige Trench

This month, the MUA crayon and Bourjois lipstick have been my go-to lip products. I bought the MUA Power Pout crayon at the beginning of August and have been loving the hot pink colour. It's really moisturising and gives a pop of bright colour without being really bold and in your face. My other favourite lip product has been the Bourjois Rouge Edition lipstick in 02 Beige Trench. I love the nude colour as it goes with any outfit and eyeshadow. 

L-R: Sleek Blush in 926 Rose Gold & MUA Eyeshadow Trio in Pink Sorbet

This month I have been loving the Sleek Blush in Rose Gold. I bought this blusher at the beginning of the year and used it so much that I started getting bored of it. So I have been using this as well as my Body Shop Shimmer Waves and MUA's Mosaic Blush. But over the last month I've really got back into using it again and it has definitely been my favourite blusher in August!

Finally, I have fallen in love with MUA's Eyeshadow Trio in Pink Sorbet, which I also bought at the same time as the Power Pout Crayon (full MUA Haul post HERE). These pinky shades are perfect with any outfit as they're really subtle. I love that you get three varying shades, perfect for creating a smokey eye effect. 

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my favourites this month. Have any of these been your August favourites too? If not, what were yours?
