Top 10 August Favourites

I thought I'd add a few random favourites to my monthly faves this month, so lets do this.

Nars Velvet Lip Liner - El Agua | £18 | Link |

A dusty lavender rose, creamy, pigmented, incredibly opaque and long-wearing lip liner, I can't rave about this enough. I've had it for quite a while but been using it a lot this last month. It lasts for ages and is such a stunning colour. I like pairing it with Nars Audacious lipstick in Anna or on it's own topped with a gloss.

Urban Decay Smoky Palette | £38 | Link |

*Bows down* I'm so glad I got this as soon as it came out, it's such an awesome palette. Urban Decay never disappoint with the quality of their palettes, they're easily up there with my all-time favourites. With twelve eye shadows, four matte, four satin and four shimmer and the ability to create a range of smoky looks, you can't go wrong. I absolutely love High and Dirtysweet, as well as Dagger and Password. If you haven't picked this up yet, go and do it.

Nars Audacious Lipstick - Natalie | £24 | Link |

So, I've only had this for two weeks but I'm adding it to my favourites because the colour is simply gorgeous and it'd be a travesty to leave it out. As you already know, I'm a massive lover of Nars and I have loads of the Audacious lippies. When I was shopping in Brent Cross with my friends, trying to decide between Natalie and Grace, Natalie won (as my friend is called Natalie) and I've not stopped wearing it (and neither did Nat, hence why I bought it for her birthday). The shade is described as Flamingo; it's a bright coral that would look beautiful on a range of skin tones. 

Mac Strobe Cream | £24.50 | Link |

If you've not tried this, what are you doing? It's a multi-purpose tube of excellence that moisturises, freshens the look of dull skin, highlights and absorbs quickly. I tend to wear it under my foundation as a primer when I'm particularly dry, it adds an all over glow and the highlight definitely shines through. I use it as a liquid highlight on my cheekbones and I've even worn it alone with concealer and the luminosity is visible from space. I love this and will always repurchase it.

Too Faced Love Flush Long-Lasting Blush - Love Hangover | £18 | Link |

I'm not going to lie, I bought this because the packaging is so cute, I had to have one. Love Hangover is a warm pink with a satin finish that really does have good staying power. It's soft, easy to blend and a really flattering colour, it doesn't kick up a lot of powder but definitely don't swirl your brush in it or you'll have clown cheeks. I never need my blusher to last 16 hours, which is how long it claims to last but it's always there 6-8 hours after I've applied it.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick - Beloved | $20 | Link |

I can't get enough of coral lips, I've never worn coral until the last few months and now I'm beyond obsessed. Beloved is one of my most reached for liquid lipsticks this month, it's such a pretty shade and I feel it suits my skin tone. Love Beloved.

GlamGlow ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment | £39.99 | Link |

My combination skin has been more on the dry side lately and I don't know what I'd have done without this mask, it's incredible. It can be used as a quick 15 minute treatment for dry skin or slept in; I tend to apply it at night and sleep with the mask on, waking up with soft, moisturised skin that isn't tight or flaky. It's bloody expensive but it's bloody good. 

Indian Summer Colouring Book | £3.95 | Link |

I took this colouring book into hospital with me and although I didn't use it much (I was too distracted by the lovely friends I made) when I did use it, it was so relaxing and it takes your mind off everyday life/distractions/stresses. It's full of gorgeous patterns and I'm really enjoying it.

Ban.Do 17 Month Classic Agenda - Florabunda | £12.92 | Link |

I'd wanted a blogging diary for a while and this is the ultimate agenda, it's cute, has little activities and illustrations and it's always in my backpack ready to take on the day with me. I've been writing all my notes and blogging ideas in it along with my appointments and to-do lists. Very organised.

Bic 4 Colours Ballpoint Pen | £3.49 | Link |

I don't always like writing in boring blue or black ink so when I saw this, I had to have it. One pen, four colours, lime green, purple, turquoise and pink - every stationery lover should own one. I'm constantly writing in my agenda with this pen, cuteness.

Have you tried anything I've been loving? What are your favourites this month?
