Ive decided to do a favorites post because I have never done one yet and there are a few things that I have been loving this month.
My first 3 favs are the MAC eyeshadow in sketch. It is a velvet finish and I have been using this color as a crease color or putting in over my next favorite makeup product to set it, it is the MAC fluidline in Macroviolet. This liner is a very pretty plumy purple and Ill either wear it alone or ill pair it with the sketch shadow or even with a silver shadow. I do feel the liner takes a few coats in order for a nice constant color line so when I'm running late and don't have time to deal with that the sketch shadow works great on hiding the oops. My last makeup favorite is the Urban Decay blush in Score. I have has this for a long time and I use it a lot. It is shimmery but its a really pretty peachy/pink.
Stuff to make you clean:
I only have two of these because I have repurchased both of these products. My first one is Secret wonderland shower gel by Bath and Body Works. I suck at describing scents so Ill just tell you the top notes, Strawberry, Gardenia, Jasmine and Amber. I always seem to go for scents that have fruity sweet scents or amber scents and this has both. It smells yummy :) My second fav is a product that I have been using since 2009 and its the Aveda Outer Peace Foaming Cleanser. This face wash is meant to be for acne but I have found that it is the best thing to control the oil on my face and it doesn't dry it out after. I just pump the top once apply it to my face, leave it sit for a few seconds and rinse it off. The foam feels nice on my face and it takes off any left over makeup I still have. ooo Im in the process of buying a clarisonic so Ill really be able to get all the gunk out of my face with that and the outer peace.
Heavenly Stardust by Victorias Secret has been my fav scent for the month. It is not over powering and stays on for a long time. I have the body spray rather than the perfume so I can spray it all over and I don't smell like I stepped into a perfume shop. It smells like the regular heavenly perfume but with an added fruity bit to it. I'm not sure if they sell it anymore though...
Owl Earrings are from a local boutique and have been really cute to wear. its an unexpected little twist to see hanging from an earlobe. There kinda big to which makes it more fun.
Non beauty favorites:
Sometimes I don't know what I would do without my Keurig and Dunkin Donuts K-Cups are what I'm loving this month. There so yummy! When I found out Dunkin donuts started selling them I ran out and bought some like the next day.
I am one of those people that always has something good smelling going on in my place (specially when you have a puppy :/) I have tons of candles but I love burning oils the most. The smell is more potent and The oils last longer than a candle. The body shop Marshmallow smells just like one, sugary sweet goodness. Only bad thing is they don't sell it anymore so I use this scent sparingly. I know Slatkin & Co came out with one so ill have to pick that one up if its in oil form. That brings me to my second which is Slatkin & Co Homemade Cookies. It smells just like chocolate chip cookies. My boyfriend came home from work the other day to this smell and was bummed when he realized the smell was coming from my oil burner and not the stove.
Did you really think that I was going to do this and NOT put in my puppy's fav thing? Teehee.
She loves this little brown chew bone. I have bought her 2 already. When I took it to take a picture of it she put her paw on it, snatched it, jumped on the couch, and chewed it. I have no idea how I managed to take this picture of her paw taking it but I did.
Here she is chewing it up :)
That's my August Favs, Hope You Enjoyed!
