Hello loves! Okay so am I the only one that wants to know where the heck this year has gone? I swear it’s just flown by! It’s been a great Summer, but I am SO ready for Fall and everything that comes with it. I’ve put together a few of my August favorites and some new found holy grail products.
First thing is this Milani Lipstick in the shade Nude Crème. This is a peachy/pink nude that goes perfect with almost any makeup look. Since I wear a lot of neutral eyeshadow shades this is the perfect everyday lipstick for me! The next favorite of mine is the Milani Baked Blush in the shade Luminoso. This is probably the most talked about blush from Milani and there’s a reason for that. It is absolutely beautiful, and goes perfect with the Nude Crème Lipstick. I am in love with the formula of this blush as well, since it’s a baked blush it’s very soft, yet very pigmented at the same time. Most drugstore blush’s I’ve tried are powdery and almost chalky but this Milani blush is quite the opposite.
My new holy grail product is the Beauty Blender Solid Cleanser. This is a beauty blender/brush cleaner and what I love about it is that it’s a bar of soap instead of a liquid (They do sell the liquid version as well if you prefer that.) It makes cleaning my brushes so so so much faster! It comes with a custom grid that lays across the soap, the grid has ridges which helps clean your brushes more thoroughly. All you do is wet your brush, then swish it back and forth across the grid, until it lathers up a little. I then rub the brush around on the back of my hand and then rinse once more and gently squeeze out excess water & soap. Make sure to remove the grid if you are cleaning a beauty blender, because the foam-like material can tear apart, so just remove the grid when cleaning those!
My next two hair related favorites are the Bed Head Resurrection Shampoo & Conditioner and then Aquage Sea Salt Spray. The Ressurrection Shampoo & Conditioner give you that “just left the salon” feeling and they smell so delicious! I get my hair highlighted pretty often because my hair grows so fast, so this shampoo & conditioner help keep my hair healthy and my color vibrant! On days when it’s raining (which it has been a lot lately in Houston), or if I’m just feeling lazy I can spray this Aquage Sea Salt Spray in damp hair and scrunch a little to give that beachy-messy look and I’m good to go! This texturizing spray also gives tons of volume which I love! I will warn you though, it will dry your hair out just a tad bit… but hey, it does have salt in it so I kind of expected that! 😉
Lastly is one of my all time favorites from Bath & Body Works which is the Black Raspberry Vanilla Body Wash! Oh my goodness, I can’t even tell you how fast I go through this stuff. I literally drench myself in the shower because it smells so good! It’s the perfect scent for me because it’s warm from the vanilla, but still fruity from the black raspberry, a perfect combination!
Well that is it for my August Favorites. Please comment below and let me know what some of your favorite products are!
