August Favorites



Belated I know...but better late than never!
Please excuse the various fonts in this post, I wrote this in bits and pieces all over the place hehe


LadyBlush BlushCreme (M.A.C)
The only cream blush I have ever found that looks better on top of powder foundation rather than below, no cakiness whatsoever. So easy to touch up, the convenience makes it a winner, did I mention the color is a beautiful natural rosy flush ?

Gentle Mineralized Blush (M.A.C)
I think just about every mineralized blush I have bought from this brand I have loved. Head over heels. I don't think the formulation creates anything outstanding compared to the normal pressed kind but every color in the collection is just gorgeous. Gently is speedily making it's way up as being my favorite blush in my collection ( this is a huge statement for me)

Quiver Pigment (M.A.C)
Beautiful rosy bronze for the cheeks. Suuuper pigmented I have to use a skunk brush that is losing mass amounts of bristles, and gently skid the top of the lid and tap like crazy to create the perfect cheek color. Rosy bronze that just brings life to the face, uplifts.

Loreal HIP Jelly Balms ( Succulent-but I am getting more colors hehe)
Heard these were being discontinued ( rumor) so I grabbed one and am completely obsessed! They're sticky and them remind me of jello but I cant stop applying this stuff. I have heard they are reminiscent to the now discontinued MAC tender tones, so if you miss those, give these a try

St Ives Green Tea Cleanser
On my ongoing battle to achieve clear skin, I have tried a multitide of cleansers, the latest being this baby.The smell is great, the foam is easy to create, and the results are working!!!

Crest Visibly White Professional Teeth Whitening Strips
Claims that after three uses you can see a "visible" difference & I can confirm this is 100% true. Yes the difference is not amazing, you are not about to have glowing white teeth ( rem Ross from Friends?) but the effects stay and don't seem to fade. I have used about eight of these and never had experienced any sort of irritation or sensitivity problems. I def recc these! But make sure to try the “Professional Effects” version

Been smiling a lot more lately which is always a plus

Lash Blast Fusion Mascara

I must one of the few people in the make up community for not fall for effects of the famed CV Lash Blast… I am thinking I may have received an old tube, because this fusion version I am loooving. I have always been a fan of drugstore mascara’s and this is no exception. Maybe I should give the famed orange tube another chance


Maybelline Full and Soft ( Waterproof)

This was my first mascara ever, remember when Sara Michelle Geller was the spokes model? That’s when I first bought this! Haha *Nostalgia*The effects are no where near dramatic, but just prettified natural enhanced lashes that look carefree and just easy breezy for summer. Good Starter or no fuss no muss kind of product

Swatches R-L

LadyBlush, Gentle, Quiver, Succulent

  1. Ladyblush and Succulent look really nice! Such pretty shades..I haven't seen jelly balms in the drugstores near me anymore! Companies always seem to discontinue things that people like lol!

    I have the green tea cleanser too! I love how easy and light the foam is, but I find that it leaves my skin a bit tight & dry after >__<

  4. I like the CV orange tube, but I just really don't see any difference with the orange and the blue tube. They look the same to me! I have a ton of mascaras waiting for me to use and test out, so once I'm done them...maybe I'll give it a shot as well!

  6. Thanks for sharing your favorites. I adore LadyBlush too, super pretty and makes you look like you have a flush/glow from the inside. I like those white strips too, effective and good results. Hmm I'm super interested in the Green Tea cleanser now too, I've been struggling with acne. Great post!

  7. You are not the only one, I also don't like the regular covergirl lash blast but I bought the Lash Blast Fusion Mascara and I love it! The Green Tea cleanser didn't work out for me but i'm glad it's working out for you.
