AUGUST FAVOURITES + MAC DUPE!

My August favourites

Hi girls,
here I'm going to show you what my favourite make up products have been for the month of August!

Sleek Face Form palette in Medium
How convenient a product is for travelling plays a big part in me loving it, so this palette is such a winner!
You could just go with foundation, mascara, lip balm and this, and you would get a full face of make up in no time.
This palette has been my favourite to take my make up from day o night: I used the darker shade for contouring and for eyeshadow, the medium shade to blend and smoke out the eyeshadow and for blush, and the highlighing shade for highlighter on the top of my cheekbones and in the inner corner of my eyes, and MWAH!, perfection.

Dior Skin Flash radiance booster pen in 001
I have always liked this product, but only this month I have had the Epiphany of how incredible it actually is.
I had applied it to touch up my undereye area, while again taking my make up from day to night, and as I was getting ready in my hotel room suddenly some beam of light hit my face and :-O !!!!!!! I had The. Most. beautiful highlight in my face, and the best part was that it looked completely natural as if those vertigo-inducing curves of my cheekbones where the real structure of my face.
Really, I wish I could explain more but words just fail me.

Kiko 3D Instant Volume lipgloss in 216 Pearly Hazelnut
I immediately became obsessed with this new line of lipglosses as soon as I bought them, so I have an entire blogpost about them Kiko 3D Instant Volume Lipglosses
And this shade was love at first sight <3

Nyx Lipliner pencil in 827 Never

Never??? More like Always!!!!
I have been using this lipliner as a lipstick, filling out my entire lips. It is a very unique deep browny mauve shade, I don't own any lipsticks like this and I would really like to find one!!
Can you suggest some?
The downside of this pencil is that its texture is drying on the lips so I have to keep touching it up with lip balm, but since it's not a lipstick to begin with I am not going to hold it against it.

Illamasqua

Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick in Buff
This is part of my London haul, when I went to visit the Illamasqua flagship store in Beak Street, I will soon write an entire blogpost about it :)))

Mac

Mac Dodgy Girl lipstick
I already wrote an entire blogpost about this lipstick and its Osbourne collection, so please check it out if you want to know more and see what dupe I found, in case you missed out on it :(
Mac Osbourne collection + lipstick dupes!!

I hope your September is being great my friends!! :-*

  1. Wow, you really sold that Dior Skin Flash radiance booster pen, girl. I wish we had Dior cosmetics here. I usually like to swatch before I buy. Next time I'm somewhere where it's sold, I'll definitely need to check it out. Hope your September is going well so far!

    1. Haha has that kind of Epiphany ever occurred to you?? :-D

      I can't think of a reason why you would not love this Dior pen, I mean you would still need concealer underneath so you can still use your favourite concealer, and then this on top to give you that effect I described!

      I'm excited for you, let me know if you try it!!
      Love xx

    1. I have never trusted leaving the Sleek eyeshadow palettes in my cargo suitcase, but this face one has survived so far - of course I always place my make up bag extra carefully in the middle of all of my clothes!!

      And I love how you said that that purple is so me! :-D
      Yes, even if I have been experimenting and loving warm/orange toned shades especially this year, in the end it's always the cooler ones I gravitate towards :)

      Love you, I hope you had a beautiful weekend!! <3

  4. Dior Skin Flash sounds amazing. I love when a product enhances your natural features and refreshes your look in just one swipe.
