August Favourites

By Sarah - Saturday, September 06, 2014

It's the time of the month again (not that kind ;)) where I'll share with you some of the products that I've been loving the past month! I know I'm a little late but I've been so busy! August flew by so quickly - I can't believe it! Let's hope September treat us well. Here are my favs, enjoy! Xo.

Zoeva #109 Luxe Face Paint 
I have been loving this brush so much for contouring! It's so easy and quick without any effort at all. I do not own the NARS ITA brush so I can't give you a comparison, but I definitely will be sticking to this one! This one is way more affordable and it feels so soft on the face (I heard the NARS brush is a little scratchy :/). For the full review on this brush, click here.

Essence Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty
This mauvey pink lipstick is a great neutral and it matches almost any eye look! I love the formulation of Essence lipsticks - creamy and moisturising. I do not need to prep my lips before using this lipstick as this does not dry out my lips at all. Pigmentation is excellent as well, one layer of this gives me good coverage and the colour is the same as that in the tube. Retailing at only $4.90 at specific Watsons, this was a great buy!

Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 Darks Palette
I've been obsessed with this palette lately. The matte shades in here are lovely to work with, and not to mention that they are so pigmented. These shadows apply nicely on the lids and they blend out really well (which is a plus for matte shadows as we know some are a bitch to blend!). Crazy in love with the shades Orbit (gorgeous deep teal) and Maple (warm reddish brown). Highly recommended matte shadow palette right here! I got mine off luxola at $22 and for the full review of this palette click here!

Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream
I've been battling serious and nasty break outs for the past few months and was this close to giving up. My best friend (who is an avid fan of Nivea) recommended the Nivea Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream to me as she used it and it worked great for her. Figuring that nothing could get worse, I decided to try it and man, am I surprised at how well it worked! I've been using this cream (which can be used on face and body by the way) on my face religiously for almost a month now and my skin has cleared up! My skin also feels smoother and more moisturised. I don't know how or why, but all I know is that I'll be using this baby for a long long long time.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation
This foundation has definitely been my go-to for the past month. It's lightweight and comfortable on the skin which is great for such hot weather here in Singapore! It blends fantastically as well, making my morning routines quick and easy. For a full review of this foundation, click here.

Have a great September guys! Xo.
