August Favourites

I need to start writing down the products I am loving during the month. Once the next month starts I pretty much forget all products I have used in the previous month. Or all I can remember is what I used for the last week. So annoying. Saying that though I try to make sure I don't use the same products all the time, with the amount of make up I own, rotation is very important. 

Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base
This primer is amazing! It adds an instant radiance and glow to the skin, so much so that you could just wear this and no foundation. I love that this works under any foundation and keeps it looking fresh and lovely all day. This can also be used over foundation as a highlighter. 

Aerin Floral Illuminating Pressed Powder
This is sold as an 'illuminating powder' but I much prefer to use it as a blush. Lately, I have really been loving that soft, pale pink cheek and this is perfect for that. It is a very subtle product that is hard to overdo. Sadly Aerin products are not currently available in Australia (and who knows when they will be). 

YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 6 In Devotion 
I love all the different Rouge Volupte lipsticks from YSL but this new formula is especially lovely. It is not as creamy as an original Rouge Volupte - it has more of a slick, gloss like texture but it is still insanely pigmented. I find the colour lasts really well on my lips even if the shine only lasts an hour or two. I think I need another shade or two from this range. 

Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes in 02 Lots o' Latte
I wrote a review (that can be found here) on this earlier and everything I said then still stands. I love this for a quick and easy eye look. This shade is especially a favourite for a one shade, quickly blended out eye. 

Chanel No.5 EDP
Perfume is something I love and have since I was about 13. It is actually what I was obsessed with before the make up obsession began. I have own No.5 for only a couple of years (it wasn't something that appealed to my teenage self). I just love this scent, the powdery loveliness. Honestly I feel grown up and sophisticated when wearing this. Probably my favourite perfume out of all I own and have tried.
