Monthly Favourites | August 2014

posted on: Thursday, September 11, 2014

I'm pretty late on posting my August monthly favourites! During August I was loving my Revlon lipstick in Primrose. I wore this lipstick almost everyday. A late edition into my august favourites was the Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara. I had been wanting to try it for a while, so when Brittany of Life, Set Sail said she loved it and suggested I buy it while we were out shopping I knew I had to have it! It has quickly become an essential part of my makeup routine. I also have been loving this purply-blue eyeliner from Maybelline. It caught my eye when I was picking up some things at Shoppers, and I've worn it a couple days a week since then. I used it in a post for the Fashion Magazine Beauty Panel if you want to check that out hereNext up on my monthly favourites list is my Wild Rose Beauty Balm* by Neal's Yard Remedies. When I use this before bed I feel like I'm having a luxurious spa day. The scent is so soothing and relaxing, and the perfect edition to my nightly routine. I've mentioned the Skindinavia Primer Spray* in a favourites post before, but I used this non-stop all August. I just love how light it feels on the skin. Finally I've been trying a new day moisturizer by Optimera*, a new skincare line that recently launched in Alberta. I am loving it. My skin has felt soft and hydrated during all of August.

What makeup and beauty products did you find yourself using a lot during the month of August?

  1. I have no idea what's keeping me from trying Clinique Bottom lash mascara. I feel like I think about it all the time but am just too lazy to go get one!

  2. I love Neal's Yard products and that lipstick is such a pretty colour! This month I've been loving No7's blush stick things (can you tell I'm no beauty blogger haha!) x

  3. My favourite summer beauty product was "The Sparkler" from The Body Shop. It's the perfect all-over shimmer with a soft scent and it comes in the most beautiful bottle = best.

  4. Lovely picks! You really are tempting me with that primer spray :)

  5. The bottom lash mascara is that extra little product that you think you don't need but is a total game changer. Love it.
