August favourites 2014

There are quite a few products I have been using throughout August so it was hard to narrow it down to my favourite 6 items, however these are the products I have used the most and near enough every single day for my everyday make up and skincare routine.  

Antipodes - Grace Gentle cream cleanser 
I'm absolutely obsessed with cream cleansers and have wanted to try this this organic Antipodes one for quite a while. This was on the pricey side at around £24, however I think it's definitely worth the price tag as it has really improved my skin texture and cleared the impurities that were on my face. I have been using this with a muslin cloth and the combination of the two work really well together at thoroughly removing all make up. This will be a product that I will repurchase again and I'm very excited about ordering some more items from the Antipodes range. 

Estee Lauder - Double wear foundation in 2C1 Pure beige 
I have been using this foundation for a couple of months now on and off but this month I have been wearing it almost every single day. It is an extremely high coverage foundation and you literally just need the tiniest amount to cover all imperfections. It is quite a thick consistency and very fast drying so you have to buff it in quickly to achieve that flawless look, I work it in to one section at a time so it doesn't look patchy. This is a foundation that would be perfect for anyone with oily/combination skin. 

Barry M - Bold black waterproof eyeliner 
This eyeliner is the most pigmented liner I have ever used! I love gel liners as well but find them hard to use so having the gel in a pencil form is perfect to achieve that cat eye flick without getting the product everywhere. The only downside of this product for me is that it can smudge after a few hours on the eye so I wouldn't say it's very long lasting. 

Tarte - Amazonian butter lipstick in Angelic nude 
I LOVE this lipstick, it is my perfect nude lip currently and I have been wearing it every day as I am so obsessed. It is completely moisturising and buttery as the name would suggest and it smells like mint which gives it a very fresh, cooling feeling on the lips. I love how the lipstick is completely organic and think that the packaging looks so cute. I just wish it was easier to purchase tarte products in the UK. 

Rimmel - Exaggerate full colour lip liner in 18 Addiction 
I have been pairing this lip liner with my tarte lipstick and I honestly think they look amazing together. I have never particularly worn a lip liner before although I think from now on it will be a staple for me as they make my lips look so much fuller and shaped. Although I've been using this combination together, I do think that this liner will be easy to use with most other products as it is a natural lip colour. 

Maybelline - The colossal go extreme volume mascara in very black
I am a big fan of Maybelline mascaras so the fact that I bought this and loved it did not surprise me, I love the falsies mascara and would say that I prefer this colossal one as it adds more volume. I think this gives a dramatic look and makes my lashes look so much longer than they actually are. This provides a great look for a night out and I think it is great value for money. I will continue to repurchase Maybelline mascaras as I think they are great quality.
