August Favourites

Hi guys. Happy Wednesday. How has YOUR week been ? My week has been pretty busy - at home and at work. But it's also been quite a testing week so far. Hopefully it will be a bit calmer from tomorrow.

Today I will be sharing my monthly favourites with you . I found some awesome new products in the month of August that I absolutely love - and I'm sure I will find some new favourites in September too. So without further rambling from me - let's jump into the products.

Hean Face Contour Set
I have to admit - I'm not a fan of duo kits like this. But how... This little set surprised me. I love the shimmery blush (first square ) so much and it's the only blush I used for August basically. The set contains a matte blush too , as well as a more bronze shade and a shade perfect for contouring. I love the contour shade and blush shade - so I've been reaching for it non stop in August .
Hean Luxury Sugar Lip Peeling and Luxury Lip Elixir
It's no secret that I love these two products - if you like to read my full thoughts on them you can click HERE to read my full review. This is the best lip scrub and lip balm type products I have ever tried. I already ordered a back up elixir - that's how much I love the products. 
The Ordinary High Adhesive Silicone Primer
I ordered this from Samika as well as a few skincare goodies I'm trying. I love this primer in combination with the Milani foundation I am mentioning too. The combo lasts all day. This primer doesn't blur pores that much , neither does it keep you matte - but this primer ensures that your make-up stays in place the whole day. I love this primer with my more full coverage foundations . The primer is pretty affordable too - another bonus. I paid around R175 for mine. 

Lush Sun Solid Perfume
It's no secret that I love the Lush solid perfumes. They are super convenient and easy for travelling to just pop in your bag for touch ups on the go. This scent smells like summer - very citrussy and perfect for this time of year. I pop some on my wrists and behind my ears and I love how fresh and clean it smells.
Catrice ICONails Gel Lacquer in Donut Worry , be Happy !
I did a full review and wear test on the blog on Monday , so if you missed it you can read it HERE . This has been my go to colour for most of August - since I'm too lazy to do some fun nail art and the polish dries fast and has pretty decent wear time. And it's pink. How can pink nails not make your heart happy ??
Revlon Youth FX Foundation
I will be doing a full review on the range on the blog next week (spoiler - I do love most of the products ) . This is the perfect work foundation for me. I love using this foundation  with the face and neck primer I will be featuring in that post too. This foundation gives a nice medium coverage without settling into the lines on your skin. My forehead is a bit of an issue lately ( I blame stress ) and this foundation lies perfectly on it without emphasising them at all. Which I LOVE. This foundation even has a SPF 20 in - which I love for my everyday foundation as I tend to be pretty aware to use SPF daily especially since adding Retinol in my routine.

Milani Conceal and Perfect 2-1 Foundation  and Concealer
Awww another foundation ? Yes I might be a little foundation obsessed lately. This is the ultimate I want to look flawless foundation for me. This foundation on me is full coverage . I pair this foundation with the Ordinary primer I mentioned above and this foundation stays in place the whole day. When I remove my make-up at night I still notice my blush and bronzer stayed put the whole day. The foundation claims to be waterproof and sweat proof too - might give that a test when summer rolls around. 

These were my favourites for the month of August. What was some of your favourite products ??


  1. You have convinced me to try the Ordinary skin care sooner than later. Just wondering if you can use this primer in conjunction with other primers as I need a pore blurring primer.
    Great post.

    1. YES ! Do try some of The Ordinary goodies - I love the skincare so far. Yes , I have used the primer with a pore smoothing one and the work nicely together.

  2. Great post! Thanks for sharing!
