August may come and August may go....oh wait..it did!
We're not super thrilled with the end of summer, but we ARE super thrilled with some fabulous products we found ourselves smitten with over the past month.
Take a look at what we found...do we have any favorites in common?
K's favorites -
Pore-fessional face primer by Benefit - a lightly tinted balm used to minimize the appearance of pores....THIS stuff is amazing, I love the feel and the texture and the way it totally minimizes my pores. :)
Betty-Lou Manizer by theBalm - aka the bronzing bandit, uhh yeah what a beautiful bronzer! Obviously...I love this stuff, use it daily!
Glamour Nights eyeshadow palette by MUA Cosmetics - Don't let this fun palette fool you, it's not JUST a "night" palette, I've come up with so many looks for my every "day" look. The colors are very versatile and highly pigmented. Always love that! :)
Precision flat angled P88 brush by Sigma - you know...those angles that are hard to reach, this baby gets right to it. I've found so many uses for this brush...LOVE IT!
Frenzy nail color by Hard Candy - these babies all paint sooo smooth and the coverage is amazing! August was my month to be obsessed with turquoise of any shade. I was literally in a "frenzy" for this particular turquoise.
Bronze Bellisimo baked blush by Milani - I've become a little bit of a blush freak! I've seen my blush collection grow and grow and grow. Milani of any color is a winner!!! These blushes are all soo gorgeous. p.s. I finally got my hands on the coveted "luminoso." Can't wait to make it one of my favorites as well.
Peony lip gloss by Julep - I never thought I'd find myself constantly reaching for a lip gloss by Julep, known for their nail polishes...wait what? Oh, but let me tell you, I love the color, I love the formula, I love the staying power-- I flat out love it!!
J's favorites -
MUA Glamour Days palette - Anyone who has tried MUA shadows know that that apply like velvet and blend like a dream. The combination of earthy tones and shimmer in this palette have had me reaching for it all month long!
Eye Shadow Helper by Lime Crime - When K bought a full sized tub of this miracle formula a while ago, she gave me the little sample tub that came with it, which is only one of the reasons she's super cool. I love love love this primer for all day eye looks...not a crease in sight! Soon enough I'm going to have to buy myself a full sized tub of my very own! :)
L'Oreal's Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black - This is actually an all time favorite mascara, which I'd strayed from for a while. Thankfully I am back to true fidelity to this little wonder. I have NEVER found a mascara...high end or low...that outdoes this one for perfect lashes.
Read My Lips Lipstick, by theBalm, in Classified - This shade is perfect for every day wear...a beautiful nude shade that goes with everything. Long lasting and moisturizing...perfecto!
Maybelline's Eyestudio Baked Eyeshadow in Persuasive Plum - We've talked before about our adoration for baked goods... ; ) ...and I'm loving plum and maroon looks as of late. This one is great to throw in the purse for touch ups on the go!
Cellular Restoration by NeoStrata - Use this super smooth cream/serum after washing your face, and your skin will feel like porcelain...guaranteed. I am borderline addicted to how smooth my skin feels after using this...it is seriously unbelievable!
Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream by Fructis - I really really really hate my curly locks. You know this. If I somehow had pretty curls that looked darling and bouncy and shine-tastic like some...it might be a different story, but I've got a frizz factory on my head. This miracle cream is an absolute must-have for my vanity and sanity. Love.
Jordana's FabuBrow Eyebrow Pencil in Taupe - Basically I've been eyebrow pencil hunting, and this is my favorite in a long time. The shade matches perfectly, and the little brush is extra helpful for taming the unruly brows I inherited from my dad. ; )
Urban Decay's 24.7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Graffiti - I love eyeliner. I especially love Urban Decay eyeliner. I also love green. Put them together. It makes sense. :)
