August beauty favourites
Friday, September 19, 2014
August was all over the map for me. I spent August dancing, hiking, relaxing and living life. For that you need some products that can keep up with whatever life throws and these picks do just that.
1. YSL Baby Doll Kiss & Blush lips and cheeks in Rose Epicurien - this duo product truly rocks. Not many multi-purpose products actually do what they claim, but the YSL Baby Dolls really do. This color gives me a perfect pink flush on my lips and cheeks that lasts for hours and looks very kawaii. Now I want them all!
2. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Solid Oil - this thick solid oil lip balm is made from ethically sourced wild argan oil from Morocco. I like using this balm as an overnight lip treatment as it's very thick and moisturizing. This balm leaves my lips soft and repaired for the day ahead. View full review.
3. Almay Intense i-Color eyeshadow in Smoky-i for browns - every brown-eyed girl needs a good arsenal of purple shadows and this is a great affordable option from Almay. This palette contains 3 shades which can be applied gently for a soft daytime smoky eye and layered deeper for a dramatic evening eye. The purple in particular is very wearable as it's slightly shimmery with a gray-purple finish.
4. Matrix Biolage Scalp Sync Soothing Serum - a cooling treat for your dry, itchy scalp, I am truly addicted to this product! Menthol and peppermint cool, while vitamin B5 nourishes your roots. View full review.
