August Favourites

This year is flying by! While I am sad to see summer go a part of me is really looking forward to the fall. I love fall scents, darker lipsticks and just sweater weather in general. However back to the topic on hand August Favourites.

Nivea Pure & Natural in Milk & Honey Lip Balm
I burnt my lips again this month, this time on hot cheesy pizza. Currently I am using last month favorite Blistex and the Nivea Milk and Honey. Milk and Honey is one of those go-too balms for me because it’s affordable, easy to find, has great ingredients, tastes great and has sanitary packaging. Trust me this lip balm does not disappoint and for less than $2.00 it should be in everyones pocket.

 Soap and Glory Scrub Actually
This is one amazing scrub! After my scrub tantrum months back I made a promise to only purchase scrubs in tubes. I eventually broke this promise and bought the Argan Body Scrub from the Body Shop but that a whole other post. Scrub Actually, is actually a fantastic scrub and I adore the packaging. While the scrub is somewhat abrasive it melts into the skin to almost a milky moisturizing texture. The best part this leaves your body smooth and nourished.
Plus it also has the added bonus of smells like sugary sweet candies and tropical fruits.

Rouge Coco Shine in Boy
Rouge Coco shines have to be one of my all-time favorite lipstick formulas. Among the ones I own Boy is my absolute favorite. This nude-y pink colour is the perfect “your lips but better” shade and goes with just about every look imaginable. Love this lipstick you can read more about it and my other favorites here. I recommend the Coco shines to everyone but if your a lip balm lover at heart your going to love these.

NARS Copacabana Multiple
I have been using this every day for months and even featured it a previous favorites post. I love this highlighter! I find this so easy to use … I literally just out of the tube draw it on my face and pat into my cheeks. The formula of this is almost cream to powder. I do have to say it just kind of magically blends itself into the cheeks so theres no need to stress on streaky results. But the booty is in the finish if I had to explain how this looks it would call it healthy skin in a tube. 
I love Copacabana so easy to use yet so effective. 

I can't wait for sweaters and pumpkin pie so I'm very excited that fall is just around the corner. 
Which is a random fact that I am leaving you with, but a truthful one!
Leave me a comment I would love to know what your favourites have been this month. 
Thank you for reading and hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend.

    I know what you mean - Fall is amazing for all the things you mentioned. Also, I'm kind of over the humidity...
