August Favorites!

August Favorites!

Another month is over! And this time it means school, for me at least. Although it is exciting because I will be starting my final year of college! Everyone then asks, then what, to which I practically just stare at them until we’re both concerned. My summer was so fricken hectic. My blog was definitely put on the back burner, but now I, weirdly, have my time! To which I will dedicate to my blog, netflix, and I suppose homework.

Anyways! I didn’t include a few of my favorites, instead those have already popped up (Tarte Undereye CC Concealer- bliss) or will pop up in future posts. From now on I’ll include a little * to indicate they woulda made this post but it would have been just too damn long. Plus, I like my rule of only having 5 products include. So, I’ll stop rambling and we can get into it!

The Body Shop All-In-One Instablur

Okay, this is a primer that I have not been able to find near me. I don’t know if it is specific to The Body Shop stores or if it’s not sold in the US? I bought it in Canada and I am obsessed. I absolutely love how this feels on my skin and how it makes my makeup look. I think that primers are the glue that makes your makeup hold together and this stuff is the best glue ever. Weird analogy, but true!

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in Streak

I’ve been eyeing this palette for maybe about a year. It was definitely on my makeup wishlist for a while. About a month and a half ago I bit the bullet and went for it! The blush is my favorite of the 3 but they’re all top notch. It just looks so pretty on. I’m also obsessed with the mirror, its great. On my vacation, I was on a train and decided to do my makeup and I used this little mirror and it worked perfectly!

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Intense Black

This is an oldie but a rediscovery of mine. So this summer I worked at a big retail store chain that starts with T. I literally was always so sweaty by the end of my shifts. I tried multiple (some high-end!) eyeliners and this held up! It was intact on my lids and looked fantastic. It didn’t budge and the color was still what it was in the morning. Seriously, if you need concrete eyeliner try this out.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara

I’ll admit I don’t have to high of standards for mascara. It is simply I like it or I don’t. I tried out this particular mascara and loved it! I like the color that it adds to my lashes. It lasts all day and upholds the sweat test, I half mentioned earlier. My lashes also held a curl when I used this mascara which makes me one happy beauty camper.

Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick- Kate Moss Collection in 104

This is another rediscovery in my own collection. Although it never really went away, I just haven’t mentioned it in a while. I adore Rimmel as a company and this color is gorgeous and so long lasting. I don’t entirely know how to describe it but it is perfect for everyday, any time. Gotta love lipsticks like that.

In an effort to save money and shop my stash I have started an 85 day no buy. It started August 30-November 23. Why does it end then? Well that’s my birthday! I have one exception, and thats that I can order the holiday Hourglass palette when it comes out- but otherwise- nada!

Care to join?

Okay first, should I keep including links? Does that help everyone out by providing easy access to find what I am talking about? I will try my best to link everything, though that is not a guarantee. Second, a new background for pictures, eh? Thats right. I’ve moved. Again. I am back at college and, strangely enough, back in a dorm. But its a dorm where you get your own room and everyone is 21 or older. So that’s pretty neat. I hope you enjoyed this chatty favorites. If you’re going back to school, best of luck. If you are or are not-

Keep Being You!
