Monthly favorites : My August Favorites!

September 2, 2012

August has come to an end. Summer is over and school is starting. Perfect. Why did I just remind myself about that?
Anyway… It’s time for a monthly favorites. This time I’m trying to keep the post short and simple for you to read and not long and boring.

As I didn’t use a bunch of products this summer, only five products are on my list and you’ve probably already seen most of them on the blog.

I’m going to start off with the lip balm that has never left my purse for weeks now. Yes, I’m talking about the Beesline lip balm. Lets just say it’s a miracle worker. I did a review about it, so click here to check it out.

Of course, you’ve all seen and heard about the famous Revlon lip butters. I even reviewed one here and it was in my previous monthly favorites. I loved it so much that I actually went back and grabbed the color Peach Parfait which is a peachy color. Duh. with a flecks of gold shimmer. Normally, I would escape from shimmer but this actually looks cool. Because of lighting issues, the tube appears orange but in reality it has a coral-y color.

Again, this is another product that I reviewed lately and I’m absolutely in LOVE with it! It’s the Maybelline gel eye liner. I have to say, I think I’m starting to love it a bit more than MAC’s fluidline. But I’m in denial. Click here to know more about it.

Moving on to mascaras. Products you’ve never seen before on the blog, a bit more interesting. As you can see in the picture above, I’ve been enjoying two different mascaras: Maybelline’s Falsies volum’ Express in Black Drama and Dior’s Diorshow Iconic.

The Maybelline one gave me a bit of length and lots of volume! Plus, my lashes were super black! They really looked like falsies with this mascara. And the wand is curved so they looked a bit curly. Two thumbs up for Maybelline.

As for the Dior one, I’m only going to tell you that I enjoy using it on my lower lashes. You’ll have to wait if you want to know more about it. A review is coming up soon, stay tuned 😉

So much for a short and simple post… Oh well, you know what they say: old habits die hard.

What are your monthly favorites? Leave a comment below!

      To be honest, I’ve never tried the Bobbi Brown one.. I even said it in my review. But if you try it out, let me know what you think 😉
