August Favourites

24 comments
Hello Lovelies,
Can you believe we are in September already? The new series of X Factor has just started which means only one thing: Christmas is around the corner! I can't believe how quick this year seems to have flown by. Though its been quite nice having a warm summer, I am looking forward to the cooler months, being able to wrap up warm and change my make up to more autumnal colours. 
I have to admit I am quite bad at putting up monthly favourites, but this month there have been quite a few products that I have been loving which I haven't mentioned on my blog yet, so I thought I'd share these products with you all in an August Favourites post.
Lauren's Way Self Tanning Bronzing Lotion
It's no secret I'm a massive fan of fake tan and this has been my go-to fake tan that I have been using throughout the month of August. This fake tan is so easy to apply as it dries really quick, which is probably my favourite thing about it. Some fake tans take a while to dry when you apply them, so you have to wait around before you get dressed, but the Lauren's Way Self Tanning Bronzing Lotion dries pretty much instantly. I apply this tan using a tanning mitt once a week before I go to bed and rinse it off in the morning. It leaves me looking bronzed and not at all orange. I bought it in the colour Darkest Dark, but I would say its more of a medium dark tan that fades evenly as well and does not go patchy. Definitely a product worth checking out if like me your a lover of fake tan!
Bath and Body Works Rio Rumberry Glowing Body Scrub
My mum bought this body scrub for me and I absolutely love it! Usually I use The Soap and Glory body scrubs to exfoliate my skin once a week, but I have to say this stuff is so much better! Soap and Glory scrubs can feel quite abrasive on my skin, whereas the Bath and Body Works Rumberry Glowing Body Scrub does not feel abrasive at all! It contains bamboo which gently exfoliates the skin, as well as vitamin E and coconut milk extract that help to moisturise the skin. I have been using this the night before I fake tan, and it easily removes any dead skin cells and and leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. Most Bath and Body Works products smell amazing, this one being no exception. It has a tropical berry and papaya scent that I just can't get enough of. If you've got a Bath and Body Works near you, I would really recommend checking this body scrub out!
OPI Nail and Cuticle Replenishing Oil
Sorry if this sounds a bit gross, but my cuticles have been an absolute state recently with skin flaking off and sometimes they'd even bleed slightly. When payday came around, I knew I needed to invest in a cuticle oil and decided to treat myself to the OPI Nail and Cuticle Replenishing Oil. This product has sorted my cuticles right out.  It contains avocado lipid complex which moisturises cuticles and nails and I am happy to report my cuticles no longer look disgusting thanks to this product! I do have to use it on a daily basis though because if I ever forget to use it my nails sadly go back to the disgusting state they were in before I bought this product.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
This is by far my favourite Maybelline product and also one of my all time favourite mascaras. It thickens, volumises and lengthens my lashes and does not flake off during the day. If you layer this mascara up you really do get a false lash effect and I totally understand why Tanya Burr is always raving about it! In fact, I would even say this mascara gives some of its high end counterparts a run for their money. If you've not tried it yet, what are you waiting for??
Benefit Coralista Blush
I've had this blush in my collection for such a long time, but I have recently rediscovered it and have been wearing it on my cheeks throughout August. This colour is a lovely warm coral pink that suits my skin tone perfectly. Out of all of Benefits boxed blushes Coralista is probably one of my favourites. This product is really soft and pigmented so you only need to use a small amount and it gives a gorgeous flush colour to my cheeks 
L'Oreal Paris Super Liner GelMatic
L'Oreal have recently released a new range of eyeliners which I was lucky enough to be sent for review. So far I have tried the Super Liner GelMatic and I love it! This product is basically a gel liner in pen form. Usually I use Maybellines Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner, but I have to say I prefer the L'Oreal Super Liner GelMatic.  It's the blackest gel eyeliner I have ever used, even blacker than MAC's Blacktrack! It's so pigmented, because it comes in pen form you do not need a brush, and it lasts all day as well. I am planning to review the entire L'Oreal Line of Beauty range in a separate post, but this particular liner has impressed me so much I thought it deserves its own spot in my August favourites!
Well that's it for my August favourites, I hope you've enjoyed reading thos post!
