August Favourites

It's been a while since I've shared my current favourite makeup items. The handful of products I'm sharing today are ones that I absolutely adore and keep reaching for.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat
I have quite a few Hourglass blushes, and this is my favourite shade! Diffused Heat is a warm peachy pink blush that is perfect for my light-medium with yellow undertones skin. The gorgeous sleek packaging is the icing on the cake!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Soft Brown
This is my everyday eyebrow product for the past 8 months and a half. I wrote a glowing review here, and I still agree with what I wrote months ago. If you're after a smudge proof, water proof eye product, look no further! The only con is that the top layer kind of dries up every so often, and I have to use my knuckle to scrap a little bit of the top every few days. Despite having to do that, this little jar of goodness is still pretty full considering the amount of use.

Zoeva Waterproof Cream Eyeliner in Black Lace
I got this eyeliner in a birthday swap (read here), and I'm absolutely in love with this cream eyeliner. It's pigmented, creamy and smudge proof once dry. I've got so much love for this eyeliner!!

L'Oreal Infallible 24H-Matte Foundation in 22 Radiant Beige
I have also recently reviewed this foundation (read here), and this is still my go to foundation. It works fantastically on my oily skin, keeping shine at bay. It's super easy to blend and matches my skin tone perfectly. I would definitely recommend checking this foundation out if you have oily skin!

Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss & Blush in Pink Hedoniste 8
This is a 2-in-1 product that can be used on both cheeks and lips. I'm going to be honest here and confess that I've only ever used this on my lips. It's a gorgeous medium vibrant pink shade that is extremely pigmented. It's not a moisturizing lip product but does not overly dry my lips out. The tear drop applicator, alongside with the creamy formula, makes application a breeze.

Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint-in-Oil in I Rose You 4
I love pairing this lip tint oil with YSL's Baby Doll Kiss & Blush Pink Hedoniste (mentioned above). It adds a bit of moisture that the Kiss & Blush is missing. The slight pink tint really accentuates Pink Hedoniste. This pair is a match made in heaven! It's my favourite lippie combo to date. I also love pairing this lip tint oil with other lippies (especially those with a drier formula), and will be looking at purchasing a backup (or two).

What are your August faves?
