Where on earth has the past few months gone!? I can't believe it's the middle of August and I'm already seeing the Autumn/Winter stuff starting to creep into the shops. Not that I'm complaining because Autumn and Winter are my favourite seasons. Bring on the hats, jumpers, hot chocolate and cosy nights in! Anyway, here's another (slightly later than usual) monthly favourites post.
Vichy Normaderm BB Clear Unifying Corrective Cream - Light
I bought this BB cream a while back during an Escentual Haul, expecting it to be an average product. How wrong I was, I absolutely love this product. It has a light to medium coverage, yet it claims to improve skin over time, which I actually have been able to see. I rarely use foundation anymore as I use this on a daily basis. The only downfall is that there is only two shades, Light and Medium. I use the shade Light and it's a little too dark for me, other than that it is a brilliant product.
Milani Illuminating Face Powder - Beauty's Touch
As I live in Northern Ireland, Milani is not an easy brand to get hold of. However, Beauty Crowd stocks an impressive range of Milani products which I could not be happier about. First on my list was this powder, however I prefer to use it on my cheeks the same way I would use a blush as it gives a lovely subtle colour due to the different tones in the product. It's perfect for lazy make-up days as well.
MAC Lipstick - Lady Danger
This is probably one of the most popular MAC lipstick shades known to the beauty world and rightly so. This gorgeous red/orange matte lipstick instantly brings some colour to my much needed pale face. Plus, it helps that it's super long lasting, yet not drying on the lips.
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Another popular product in the beauty world is this Kiehl's oil, loved by the majority of people that have purchased it since the hype. What I love most about this oil is that it's not heavy in the slightest, it sinks in quickly and is suitable for even my extremely sensitive skin. It improves the overall look of my skin, I always notice my skin a little fresher in the morning if I've used this the night before.
Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray
One thing I just love trying out is sea salt sprays. I've tried so many over the past few years I've lost count. All I know is that this one is definitely up there with the top 5. It gives the perfect beachy waves look that I love, yet it doesn't make my hair feel or look crispy or dry the way some sea salt sprays do.
