August Favourites

My birthday, Thanksgiving, Halloween… fall is right around the corner and I am absolutely over the moon about it. Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against ice cream, BBQ’s or anything summer related for that matter.  Well I do have a problem with humidity and sun burns but let’s not go there.  So with this new crisp fall air comes newly found beauty inspiration and a slew of new favourites to share with you today.

Super Facialist Cleansing Oil
Super Facialist made me a cleansing oil convert. This gentle oil melts makeup off like nobody’s business. Plus it’s affordable and leaves your skin baby soft. Plus it doesn’t leave a greasy residue to the skin, which makes it perfect all skin types.  Plus it smells nice! It’s all plus’s with this one!
See full review here.

Alien Thierry Mugler
I was happy to call Alien my signature scent during college. Even more specifically it was always the background scent to “club nights”, which was always accompanied by a hint of cheap red wine.  Almost 10 years later things are different, as I am no longer ‘clubbing’, ‘pubbing’ or any of that business. However Alien magically still remains relevant with its warm notes of Amber and floral notes of jasmine. This perfume has easily become the backdrop to my 9-5, yet it still contains some party girl nostalgia of the past.

Dove Purely Pampering Pistachio Cream with…
With its hydrating formula, rich lather and delicious pistachio scent this has to be one of my favourite body washes of all time. The only thing I would change is long winded name… why didn’t they call this Pistachio Cream Body Wash to keep thing simple? Name aside if you were craving a body wash with a good dose of moisture this is a must try.

NARS Kalahari Eye Shadow Duo
The bronzy/purple/red tone shade in this duo is truly unique. When I started thinking about similar colours the first thing that came into mind was By Terry’s famous Mystic Rock eye shadow pencil. Side by side Mystic Rock is slightly shimmerier, but I have to say both are very similar in tone. As for the bronzy gold shade (not pictured) in the duo it’s just as stunning worn alone or partnered with another shadow.

CoverGirl Stay Luminous Foundation
Luminous, hydrating and long lasting this foundation is a dream on dry skin. Day to day I like to apply a sheer wash of colour with my fingers. However you can equally use a brush and build this to a medium coverage as well. You can see my full review on this drugstore gem here!

I am truly excited about this month’s favourites. On a complete side note I am also excited for pumpkin pie, butternut squash soup, apple cider and all the glory that is fall food. Mini Halloween chocolate bars, candy corn … I can seriously talk about food forever so I will spare you the earful.
What have you loved month, leave me a comment below.
