Monthly Favorites: August

image

This month has been all about lipsticks for me!! Bright lips and nude eyes have pretty much been my look for the entire month. I did put up a detailed review of my favorite Amrezy eyeshadow palette, which still remains my favorite this month πŸ™‚ Click HERE to read that review. Along with the Amrezy palette; I have a few lipsticks and other beauty products that I would like to share with you guys.

My first favorite are these gorgeous Too Faced melted lipsticks. They come in many shades but my current favorites are bright melted fig, fuchsia and creamy color. The lipsticks are really pigmented and a little bit goes a long way. The color payoff is really bright and I don’t see myself reapplying more than once throughout the day!!! Another pro is that even though these are liquified lipsticks they do not bleed. They stay on quite well even without a lip liner and do not dry the lips. Below are the swatches of melted fig, bright fuchsia and creamy coral in that order.

Melted fig is the perfect transition color into the fall and bright fuchsia is my absolute favorite no matter the weather. πŸ™‚

Wearing: Bright Fuchsia

Next, is this amazing Seaberry face oil by fresh cosmetics. This native siberian oil has been a used as a restorative oil for ages. The potent oil is made with sea berry, cranberry seed, camellia seed, grape seed and almond oil. It contains Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 along with Vitamin E which provides the skin the essential anti oxidants and hydrates the skin helping it maintain its elasticity and smoothness. Another major pro is that it’s formulated without parabans, sulfates & phthalates! YAY for organics!!

It does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin and is absorbed quickly! I usually apply it every night before I use my moisturizer. I do have acne prone skin and this does not seem to make my skin overly oily or break out which makes me love this product even more. It also smells very earthy which instantly calms you down. It might be a little too strong for some folks but hey, it’s nothin’ compared to the glowing skin it gives you in return πŸ™‚ This is available at your local sephora for 50.00USD.

Taking care of your feet is very essential at all times and especially during summer. Since we tend to wear sandals and flip flops a lot, our feet are more prone to dirt and germs. It is very important to keep your feet clean and well moisturized at all times to avoid them from looking dry or dirty. I apply the reflexology foot massage cream by earth therapeutics on my feet daily. This cream smells super fresh and minty making your feet feel totally relaxed after rubbing it for about 30 seconds. This cream isn’t greasy at all so it’s perfect to apply before your put your shoes on. Also if you wear heels a lot this cream will help your feet relax after a long day of walking in stilettos!!
Another addition to my foot care regime is the foot spray by earth therapeutics. This amazing spray contains peppermint oil, mint and deodorizing tea tree oil. It instantly refreshes your feet and improves circulation. This spray also contains aloe which softens the skin. I often use this plenty times during the day just for a burst of freshness. These products are my favorite and I literally can’t imagine my feet without these. The spray and cream are both available at your local ULTA for 9.00USD each.

My next favorite is a classic!! I have been in love with this perfume for years and I finally decided to put it in my august favorites because I have been using this baby every single day for the past month!! This EDP is simply my go-to scent. It smells musky and sexy without being overwhelming. I can’t do fruity fragrances and this isn’t one for sure. It has really rich and deep base notes of musk and vanilla which linger on for hours. To me this smells very classic yet modern and I LAAAAVVVVV IT !! You can purchase the 3.3 fl oz bottle at your local ulta or sephora for 85.00USD.

I am a huge fan of the bare minerals powder foundation. I tend to use it often when my skin breaks out and liquid foundation just ends up looking too cakey and horrid!!! I must say that when I break out, all my skin needs is a little concealer and bare minerals. It does a great job at making my skin look perfect and also adds a subtle glow to it. I wear the color golden medium and it is the perfect match for yellow tone skin types.

image

This usually lasts me about 4-6 months depending on how much I use and it’s totally affordable and way cheaper than any liquid foundation I use. Also, while I use it, I know that my pores aren’t blocked all the way and it actually gives my acne time to heal so this is definitely a must have in my vanity. This is available at Sephora for 27.00USD.

And, last but not the least, I have these xtreme lip cremes by nyx cosmetics. My favorite colors are spicy and nude peach fuzz. These melted lipsticks are pigmented, add a lotta shine and are totally affordable. These work well with any lip liner and the color just seems to intensify. One thing I am not big on is the smell/taste but the pigmentation is so amazing that I really don’t care for the taste much.

image

Here are the swatches of spicy and nude peach fuzz in that order.

image

These are totally wearable during the day as well as for night time looks. I will be using spicy a lot in the coming months because it’s a great color for fall looks. These babies are available at ULTA for 5.99USD
