August Beauty Favourites

Following on from my most popular post ever My July Beauty Favourites I thought why not show you all my favourites for August? August is one of my favourite months of the year for a few reasons, one of them being it's my birthday month 'woohoo' and another being its a step closer to Autumn - my favourite season of all.

This month just like last month has been a pretty busy one for me! Firstly it was my birthday then not long after that the kids went back to school after a long summer holiday, it takes ages to get back into that routine again doesn't it?

Anyways moving onto my beauty favourites.. choosing again was easy as I loved each of these products so much and most of them were used nearly everyday this past month.

My goodness, this was a right pain in the ass to get and when I finally got my chance to purchase it I finally realised why there is such a big hype for this! This concealer has 25 shades to choose from and has a large doe foot applicator that makes applying this a breeze. 

This can be used as a concealer, contour or to use on blemishes. I personally use it for my dark circles and this product works very well for me, now no one asks if im tired, which is a relief.

Where to buy? Revolution and Superdrug online and also Superdrug stores.
Price? £4.00

I really wish I could purchase the whole 10-year anniversary collection because it all looks stunning. I bought this as part of the make I was wearing for the family wedding I went to last month and it shocked me in a good way at how beautiful the rose gold is and also how brightening and shimmery it is, it's divine. 

I love to use this on my cheekbones, cupid's bow, eyebrow arch and pretty much wherever aha! It's so pigmented, the photos don't do it justice!

Where to buy? Debenhams online and instore
Price? £25.00

Nivea MicellAir Professional Micellar Water 
As much as I loved my Garnier Micellar I decided to switch it up a bit and try out this one to see how it works. Micellar is a must in my skincare routine so making sure I get all my makeup off including waterproof makeup is a must for me. This removes all makeup effortlessly, I basically apply some to a cotton wool pad and remove makeup gently and it comes on so easily.

This for me has the edge over the Garnier Micellar water as its lightweight on the skin and it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin either. It also removes waterproof makeup so easily.

Urban Decay Beached Bronzer in Sun Kissed
I have had this for 2 years now and as you can see by the photos, it's broken and unfortunately its time to go as its come to the end of its best before date. But before that, I had to tell you how much I have loved this bronzer. This bronzer is the first bronzer I have ever purchased and I used it for contours and for summer makeup routines.

It has gorgeous summery packaging and the bronzer is perfect for subtle makeup looks. I am tempted to repurchase this soon.

Pinky Goat 3D Silk False Lashes in Raha
2018 will be the year I will remember as the year that I finally mastered how to apply false lashes properly without poking my eyes or them coming loose halfway through the day LOL! These lashes cost double what I usually pay for lashes by my goodness they are worth every penny, they last up to 15 uses.  They are weightless while looking amazing at the same time because they are so intense and long as the name suggests.

I am so tempted to try out more of the pinky goat lashes because I am in love with these lashes.

  1. Never heard about this Nivea product. But I am pretty sure, I heard that it is coming to our country as well. False Lashes are in huge trend, especially for someone who wants to go at High Society Parties.

  2. Firstly, happy belated birthday! Hope you had a good day.

    I really want to try the Makeup revolution concealer and hearing you say that it's good has made me want to try it even more.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. The Nivea micellar water looks like something right up my alley! I also use the garnier one so it might be good to give this one a try to switch things up a bit! Thank you for sharing :)

  4. I never heard of Nivea's this product. But really looks great. I use concealer a lot so I would look out for it..

  5. While none of these are really for me, I'm glad I stumbled across it. I'm sending to my G/F - she'll love the Cat Von D stuff.

  6. First of all- happy late birthday, I hope you had a good day! I love the revolution concealer too, and definitely agree that it was so hard to get ahold of for a while, but once you try it, it's so clear as to why!xx

  7. It looks like you had some great August favourites! I have been meaning to try the new Revolution concealer but its so hard to find!

  8. I wish I get a highlighter that will do it for me as you have.And you are also so lucky that you've mastered how to apply false lashes since I have more to work on when it comes to that lol! Anyway, you got such pretty products here .

  9. I hope you had a nice birthday!!! What a great collection of favourites. I'm interested to compare Nivea micellar water with garnier one now! On another note, as soon as I visited your blog, I just had to follow. x Laura /

  10. My daughter likes Urban Decay. I have not tried it but I will sooner or later. :)

  11. oooh some great favourites for August for sure, some of these I have had my eye on as well. It's always nice to see favourites, a great way to find new goodies.

  12. Added the Kat Von D Gold Skool Highlighter to my wishlist - I love that Kat Von D is cruelty free too! Loved this post lovely! xx

  13. Never tried any of these products but they sound amazing! 😊

    Lovely blog post, Melissa! 😊

  14. I’ve always been really curious about the Urban Decay Bronzer, I remember when they first came out and everyone raved about them but the hype seems to have died down now so I’m am pleased to see someone talk about it! I have a highlight palette from Kat Von D and it is amazing but the 10th anniversary one looks amazing, adding it to my wishlist now!

  15. I have seen lots of good reviews in regards with the brand Urban Decay. Lots of bloggers say good feedback about it. This is nice. Thanks for sharing.

  16. I love reading these type of posts! I'm not sure if I could choose favourites each month, although I think if I was to try they would be quite similar each month, haha. I'm not the most adventurous person when it comes to make up - I wish I was braver! Yay for mastering the false lashes! I've never tried putting them on before but it does sound like it's difficult! Hope you have a lovely birthday :)


  17. Some fab products included this month! I love the sound of that Nivea MicellAir, I've never seen it before! I also love the Garnier Micellar Water so I might need to look out for this instead next time! Xx

  18. Happy belated! I hope you had a blast! I definitely have to try the Nivea micellar!

  19. Loving this post!! I'm such a huge fan of the MUR concealer, it's my go to concealer now and a lot of the time I don't even feel like I need to put foundation on top of it, just set it with powder! I really want to invest in some more KVD products to try as she's bought out so many fab things recently, definitely going to be on my Christmas wishlist!

  20. I love that your beauty favorites don't break the bank at all! It always feels nice when you have a highlighter that works well with your skin. Big plus when beauty products last a LONG time! I am a total fan of the lashes - love that it's so full! Thanks for hsaring your faves :).

    Nancy ♥

  21. Love your list of favorites for August! I have been wanting to try the concealer from Makeup Revolution for a while now but everytime I go to Ulta they are out of my shade!!


  22. I don’t wear cosmetics so I must admit I don’t know how to apply half of these products. But my best friend loves most of these - so I’ll show her this post because I think she’ll love it :)

  23. I love micellar water for getting my makeup off before going in with a proper cleanser. I've never seen that one anywhere and it looks great!! I need to try this soon x


  24. I'd love to try a makeup remover like that. It seems like a gentle cleanser. What a great roundup of products for sure!

  25. Oh gosh, I want to try everything. I've heard such great things about that Kat Von D highlighter!

  26. I think the Micellar water would be the most interesting to my daughter. Although at this point she generally doesn't wear enough makeup to necessitate it. Very thorough review.

  27. I am intrigue with your NIVEA Micellar makeup remover, am not sure if that's the same here in the Philippines, but with very different packaging. You truly love these finds!

  28. The metal crush item looks cool. Reminds me of an AC/DC album cover. Kat Von D sounds metal too!
