Monthly Favourites // August 13

I've not done a monthly favourite post since June! When I was thinking about monthly favourites at the end of last month, I couldn't think of many products so I thought I would leave last month and do a bigger one this month. I have bought quite a lot of products this month and some of which have made it into my favourites! 

MAC - Studio Finish Concealer 

For the past few months I've had quite bad skin and nothing has wanted to cover it, I had heard a lot about how full of a coverage this concealer was. I have really like it, it definitely covers redness up but they are still noticeable but there isn't a lot you can do about acne! 

MAC - Charcoal Brown Eye-shadow

If you've ever watched a make-up tutorials by the wonderful Tanya Burr then you will know that she uses Mac's Charcoal Brown eye-shadow for her eyebrows and since her eyebrows always look amazing and since I was in need of a new brow powder - I thought I would give it a go and I'm so glad I did! 

Soap & Glory - Thick and Fast Mascara

I have re-discovered this mascara I used to use it all the time and I thought I would give it a go again. I love the look it gives to my lashes as it thickens them up but also gives my lashes a little bit of length. 

Maybelline - Baby Lips in Pink Punch

I have done a separate post on Baby Lips which I will link here. I absolutely love them especially since there are such good quality for the £2.99 price tag is amazing, I also love the packaging and the variety that you get. The is my favourite colour out of the range. 

Real Techniques - Blush & Powder Brush

I have also recently did a separate post on my Real Technique brushes and have done a mini review / my collection which I will link here. I got these two brushes this months on an offer that was in Boots, I love these brushes especially the Blush Brush which I have been using for powder, bronzer and blush! 

Essie - Fiji

This is the colour I have been looking for, for so long! It is the perfect baby pink, it goes with everything and if you don't like nail colours that clash with your outfits then this is perfect as it goes with everything and it is so wearable. I just can't express how much I love it - it is basically the only nail colour I have had one this month! 

Seche Vite - Dry Fast Top Coat

The biggest pain for me about painting my nails would be waiting for them to dry even if I do them when I'm not doing anything they will find a way to smudge  This is a miracle product it literally dries your nails within a few minutes and you can get on with your day! Perfect!

Oilatum - Natural Repair Face Cream

Like I mentioned earlier I have recently had a bad bought of acne and so I have been trying to find products that help my skin. I also have quite dry skin as I have eczema so my skin is pretty dry. When I was a kid I used to use Oilatum bath stuff in fact the bottle the smell everything about oilatum basically says to me "my childhood" as when I was younger I did have it quite bad. Nic from Pixiwoo always used to use this at the beginning of her tutorials as she has dry skin and so I thought I would try it. Its very rich and creamy which I love and makes my skin feel amazing however it only comes in a 50ml tube which I have gone through rather quickly.

I hope you enjoyed, and found this somewhat helpful! There is definalty some of my new holy grail products in this months favourites! And sorry there a little bit late - I've been so busy I haven't had the time to write any new posts but I do have lots planned!
