Another month has passed, so we know what time it is! Sorry that I missed July favourites but I just didn't have enough products to talk about to make it worth while.
Topshop Cream Blush in Head Over Heels
I was scared of the thought of a cream blush at first, it was something I didn't really understand but I had read so much about them that I felt I should try one out. I chose this beautiful peachy from Topshop and have fallen head over heels (pardon the pun). I apply this with the Real Techniques stippling brush and it gives such a lovely colour to the cheeks but still looks natural. The only down side is that these get disgustingly dirty, it seems to attract hairs and dust.
Benefit Watt's Up Highlighter
With it being summer I like my makeup to look a little glowier than normal (we are just going to pretend glowier is a word); and Watt's Up is the product that achieves this. This is a cream highlight that is a beautiful colour and blends so seamlessly. I have recently purchased MAC's Soft and Gentle mineralize skin finish but haven't tested this enough to know whether I love it as much as Watt's Up but I will get back to you on that on.
Soap and Glory Smoothie Milk
This is probably my favourite ever smell, I cannot get enough, it is just....WOW! If you haven't smelt this, next time you are in Boots I urge you to head to the Soap & Glory counter and give this a whif, you will not be disappointed. Anyway, I have been moisturising a lot recently in an attempt to not peel after coming back from holiday and this has been my product of choice, not only because it smells like it was created by angels, but also because the pump allows for easy application and it sinks into the skin very quickly.
Topshop Nail Polish in Collegiate
Topshop nail polishes are among the best in my opinion. This is a beautiful orangey red and I have been reaching for this colour a lot, it looked great with a tan when I came back off holiday too!
Botanics Hydrating Day Cream
I picked this up randomly as I had run out of day cream and this was cheap and cheerful. This has an extremely runny formula but it is very hydrating, I have been suffering with some dry patches on my skin recently and this has really been helping to combat them. For the price, it can't really be faulted. It also has the added bonus of an SPF!
So there you are my August Favourites, can't believe thats another one out of the way. I have been blogging for over 7 months now, I am still loving it and really do appreciate any support I get, I means a lot.
