A Few August Favorites

I have been going through a weird no-makeup phase which has consisted of only wearing foundation, concealer + brows. I don't know why but I've particularly been enjoying having nothing on my eyes. I'm saving those products for another post, so here are my other favorites I have been enjoying when I feel like making more of an effort.

First off is the Maybelline Master Hi Lighting Blush in 10 Nude which is a great blush/highlighter in one. Even if I'm not wearing blush I like to use the lighter shades for a bit of a highlight on the high points of my face. Another highlighter that I got as a sample (I will also be doing a post on the millions of samples I got from Sephora, please bear with me) is the Benefit Watt's Up which I am absolutely loving. It reminds me of the discontinued Jemma Kidd Rose Gold cream highlighter from back in the day. I love cream highlighters because they look more natural + they are so quick + easy to apply. 

Lipstick hasn't been on my radar recently so I've either been wearing the incredibly expensive Aesop Lip Balm because it does have SPF 30 in it + it smells amazing as well as being really moisturising or I've been opting for a lipgloss. My favorite lipgloss at the moment is the Soap & Glory Pillow Plump in Coy Toy because I'm not going to lie guys, I do want lip fillers + this does help make my lips look fuller even if it's just for a while. It's a neutral peachy shade too so it's very inoffensive + not too sticky. 

Earlier in the month my nails got destroyed by Shellac (which is weird because I have never had a problem with gels from other brands) so I have been avoiding nail polish. However, I am currently wearing L'Oréal Paris Greycian Goddess which is a perfect grey shade for fall. I'm pretty much over summer makeup, nails + clothes now despite loving the warmer weather. I just want to be wearing sweaters + layers already.

The last product is L'Oréal Paris Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara which has hands down been my favorite mascara since about May. I like a lot of volume + I like my mascara to be very, very black so this gets a massive thumbs up from me. I also find this to be great on the bottom lashes too... basically I can't fault this. I think this is probably my third tube of the stuff.
