August BEAUTY Faves

After taking about two months off, I’ve decided to bring back the ol blog and share a favorites post with you all! Hope y’all haven’t given up on me 🙂

Hopefully I will be able to get back to my old MWF schedule (maybe just MF?) now that both of my girls are in school. Allie started 2nd grade last week, and Ashley is starting Pre-K (only two days a week) this week. So, maybe I will have some free time on my hands! 🙂 I hope everyone is having a great summer.

Let’s talk faves!

Let’s talk about this eyeshadow palette which I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with.

This is the Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette. Too Faced recently repackaged this, hence the reason I found it at Nordstrom Rack for $13. This is a really nice palette! It has mattes, it has shimmers, and can take you from day to night.

Next up is this MAC blush in Springsheen.

If you are a fan of NARS Orgasm, you will love this! It is a peachy pink with a gold sheen. Pure ROSE GOLD.

Ohhh it’s so pretty. It is a sheertone blush, so it’s buildable, which I like. I don’t like super pigmented blush. This is a really nice one and stays on all day.

Also, something I really hate to love. This YSL Babydoll Mascara. It’s essspensive.

This mascara holds the curl in my lashes better than any mascara out there. Lash Paradise and Roller Lash are close, but this mascara takes the cake. It is super black, and really lifts and lengthens. I have to have this. YOLO.

I have a few lip faves that haven’t left my purse for almost a whole month.

First is this Fenty Gloss Bomb in Fenty Glow. I believe this is the only shade this comes in (they are releasing a pearly one soon though!) and it is just the perfect gloss. Not sticky, smells delish, and has a beautiful color and shimmer. Go look at the reviews! I’m not the only one who loves it. Here it is next to the blush.

The other lip product is the Revlon Kiss Exfoliating Balm. I had never seen it before but my sister gave it to me for my birthday and I LOVE it. The smell of it is like vanilla mint, and it subtly exfoliates and moisturizes your lips. It’s not as sugary as a lip scrub, but it does have a teeny amount of grit to it. I really like it and it’s perfect for my purse.

I’ve been using a new moisturizer, this Ole Henriksen Nurture Me Moisturizing Creme.

This brand has a bunch of different types in these jars, but I love this pink one. It is a nice thick moisturizing cream that smells like an orange creamsicle. Sometimes I will open my beauty cabinet just to smell it. It feels so smooth and nice on my skin and hasn’t broken me out.

Next, some hair faves. First is the Living Proof Restore Smooth Blow Out Concentrate.

This is a hair serum that you only need a teeny bit of (one pump) and it smoothes the hair and helps to minimize blow dry time. It smells AMAZING (duh, Living Proof) and my hair feels so soft after using it.

Next are these cute little hair ties.

These are the Invisibobble Slim ponytail holders. These are so cute and come in a bunch of colors. They will keep your hair up all day and they don’t make a dent in your hair when you take them out. Love them!

That’s it for the faves! What have you been loving this month?
