August Beauty Favorites!
Welcome back, my loves! Today, I will be sharing my August Beauty Favorites! This post will feature all things beauty that I have loved this month! I will also be sharing my favorite memory/experience from this month! I think that this is a great way for you guys to get to know me better and relate to me more! I would LOVE for you guys to share your favorite experience or memory from this month, as well! I would love to relate to and get to know you all better! XO!
1. Stilla Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow–$24.00 (in Jezebel)
These are absolutely amazing. I have tried the Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow but they were just too glittery and uneven for me. These Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eyeshadows, on the other hand, are absolutely perfect. They are just what they say, shimmery and glowy. They create the most glossy look on the eye while also remaining natural and effortless! It is also so longwearing and does not crease throughout the day!
2. J.Cat Beauty Pris-Metal Chrome Eye Mousse–$7.17 (from Amazon)
These eyeshadows are absolutely incredible. They are so moussey, as per the name, creamy, and smooth. These shadows have a really interesting consistency, while yes they are a mousse formula, they are not only a mousse formula, but they are also a fluffy type of texture, which paired with the mousse formula, creates a really interesting texture! These shadows grab onto a brush and apply fairly well, but to receive maximum pigment payoff, I definitely suggest using a fingertip! You must layer this product up though, at first application, without enough product, they do appear slightly patchy, but once you layer it, gradually, they create the most beautiful effect on the eyes! You honestly cannot get a better cream eyeshadow, for the price!
Swatches of My Favorite Shades:
- Chrome Galaxy (seen above)
- Champagne Wiz (seen above)
3. Jaclyn HillxMorphe Eyeshadow Palette–$38.00
This palette is a repurchase for me! I have purchased this palette THREE times now since I have hit pan on my favorite shades now two times and cannot live without them! I absolutely love this palette! This palette is one of my absolute FAVORITES. There is such a wide array of shades and they are all so blendable, creamy, and smooth. The palette features 35 shades with matte, shimmer, satin, foil, and glitter finishes. Jaclyn Hill, one of my very favorite YouTubers, worked with the makeup brand, Morphe, for over two years to create and perfect this amazing palette. The wide array of shadows makes it so that this palette is the only one you need to use for a completed makeup look, making it ideal for travel!
4. Anastasia Glow Kit Beverly Hills Kit That Glow–$33.95 (from Amazon)
This is my absolute favorite GlowKit by Anastasia. For some reason, they do not sell it anymore but luckily, I have been able to find it on Amazon! This GlowKit is so bronzy but in a very natural and glowy way. I love the formula of Anastasia GlowKits they are amazing. Some people say they are too powdery but I do not think so. I think they are creamy and apply so smoothly to the skin!
5. Tarte Color Splash Lipstick–$21.00 (in Rum Punch)
I have been especially loving my all-time favorite lipstick, this month. These Tarte lipsticks are a long-wearing, moisture-rich, full-coverage lipstick in an array of creamy shades. I absolutely adore these lipsticks and I love them for a lot of the same reasons that I love the Urban Decay lipsticks. They are slightly less creamy and long-wearing than the Urban Decay Vice lipsticks but I find the shades that are offered in the Tarte formula to be more wearable and neutral toned. Not only is this my favorite lipstick formula, but this is also my favorite lipstick shade, in Rum Punch. This shade is perfect for me and my skin tone! The shade is a perfect nude for me, on me the shade is a true nude. I find the shade Rum Punch to be so dynamic because while it is a true nude, it is also has both brown and pink undertones. It is the perfect shade for those of you who have neutral and olive undertones, like myself!
6. Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist–$24.90 (from Amazon)
\ absolutely love this setting spray. I had just run out of my Urban Decay setting spray and was wanting to try a new one. I ordered this product off of Amazon because it was cheaper and arrived faster than on the Sephora website. The price of this product on Sephora is, $26.00 so I save a $1.10 by ordering it on Amazon. Yet, I was placing an order with other products, so it did work out in my favor. This is my new favorite makeup setting spray. Honestly, I like it better than the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray! This setting spray is perfect for me! It prevents my oils from coming to the surface of my skin and creating that disgusting oily look. Yet, it does still allow my skin to look glowy, dewy, and fresh from all the brightening skincare I use! The fine spray is perfect for setting my makeup and does not leave little marks from the spray! I think that this setting spray keeps my oils at bay much better than the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray and makes my makeup last much longer, as well!
1. Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum–$90.00 (From Amazon)
I absolutely love this product. It is my new obsession! It is so pricey and it kills me that it is so expensive. Yet, I notice a visible difference when I do not apply it. I notice in the morning that my skin is visibly brightened and more radiant. This product features a 12 percent AHA/BHA serum for night that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion, while enhancing the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption.
2. Laneige Lip Mask–$16.29 (From Amazon)
This is my absolute favorite lip mask. This mask really hydrates and repairs my dry and cracked (I know, totally gross!) lips. This lip mask makes my lips so smooth and leaves them so supple looking. The scent is strong but enjoyable and if you accidentally get some in your mouth, which is inevitable, the taste is lovely!
1. Chloé Perfume (2.5 ounces)–$56.94 (from Amazon)
This is my absolute favorite fragrance. I am terrible at describing fragrances so I will leave the notes down below. This scent is just so elegant and classic and makes you feel sexy while also classy, at the same time.
Peony, Rose, Honey, Cedarwood
My Favorite Experience/Memory From August:
My favorite experience this month was going to a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert with my best friend. The concert was an experience, to say the least! Beyonce is just such a performer and I was so stunned by her ability to both sing, dance, and put on an amazing performance. She was stunning and Jay-Z was amazing too! I had the best time with my best friend! It was a night to remember forever! Pics and video down below! 🙂
