Ah I know you guys have been waiting for this – and here it is! My favorite products from the month of August – beauty, food, random.. anything goes!
Chanel Eyeshadow – Emerveille – Total splurge for me this month! I saw this in one of Ingrid’s videos (MissGlamorazzi on YouTube) and fell in LOVE! It’s such a gorgeous rose gold champagne color. I can’t even describe how amazing it is in person. The texture is so soft & smooth. Well worth the money! Retails – $36 Purchase – Chanel Counters
Dior Lipgloss in Sari Pink – Again, another splurge for me and another recommendation from MissGlamorazzi (I’ll link her channel at the end of this post) Sari Pink is the perfect light pink lipgloss. It goes on sheer but is very build-able. Dior lip glosses come with a brush applicator and are NOT sticky whatsoever. Retails – $25 Purchase – Sephora, Dior Counters
NYX Lipgloss in Beige – Yeah. I said beige. But as you can see, this is NOT Beige at all. No clue where they came up with the name for this! Creamy pink, cherry scent and a doe foot applicator. What more could you ask for? Retails – $4 Purchase – Ulta
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny – I had been looking for an affordable matte bronzer for awhile now and picked this one up on a whim and I am so glad I did! It’s not cakey and goes on very nicely. This is going to be perfect for the winter time. And how can you beat the price?! Retails – $2.99 Purchase – Drugstores, Target, Walmart
Maybelline One by One Volume Express in Blackest Black – Hooray for mascara! I feel like I ALWAYS have a Maybelline mascara in my favorites posts.. They’re just so freaking amazing! The brush on this has over 300 alternating long & short bristles that are very thin allowing it to reach every single one of your lashes. This mascara *IS* waterproof (which I love) but what’s even better is when you go to take it off at night, you don’t have to struggle. It comes off easy & painless! Retails – $6.50 Purchase – Drugstores, Target, Walmart
NAIL POLISH FAVORITES
Cult Nails – Wicked Fast Top Coat & Manipulative – I have had QUITE the Cult Nails obsession last month. I seriously think I went from 2 Cults to about 30 in a matter of weeks. Maria is such a sweetheart and is so professional. Can we just talk about this top coat for a second? Shut the front door. It dried quickly & made my nails super shiny. Love. Need more asap! Be sure to check out my review on the new collection coming later on this week!
Here’s a mani I did with Manipulative & Dollish Polish Expecto Patronum!
American Apparel Violet Panache – Holy macaroli. Who knew American Apparel’s polishes were freaking awesome!? This one especially caught my eye at the register and I grabbed it at the last second. So glad I did! What a freaking stunner!
Waffle Weave Makeup Bag from Glitzy Glam – I have been wanting one of these for a long time so I finally took the plunge and ordered. GlitzyGlam.com is a shop run by Elle & Blair Fowler (Links to their YouTube will be down below). You can get personalized makeup bags, tumblers, keychains.. anything your heart desires! They also have super cute Lily Pulitzer items on there as well! I picked a lime green bag with my name & bow in hot pink. This holds a TON! I was also VERY impressed with their customer service. I had emailed them and asked to have this rushed and it showed up in 2 days. Unreal! Retails – Prices Vary / Purchase – Glitzy Glam (They also ship worldwide!)
Bath & Body Works Frosted Cupcake 3 Wick Candle – Ohhhh my goodness. My favorite candle scent! If you don’t have any B&BW candles, go get you some! They are 2 for $20 until tomorrow I believe? (Don’t quote me on that) I love when they have sales on these. I will usually stock up like nobody’s business. This past sale I bought 4 more on top of the already 5 I had. Retails – $20 / Purchase – Bath & Body Works
Nail Polish Ring (RBL Bella Donna & Essie Stroke of Brilliance) – This was made by the amazing Chelsea over at The Nail Network! I have talked about her shop / blog SO many times so I won’t go into crazy details.. but I HIGHLY recommend purchasing from her. Look how gorgeous this baby is?! Retails – Prices Vary / Purchase – ETSY
Clarisonic Mia2 in Pink – I just did a blog post review on this product, so I’m not going to repeat myself! Check out why I am in LOVE with it HERE Retails – $149 / Purchase – b-glowing, Ulta, Macy’s
Big Brother 14 – Every Summer, I live & breathe Big Brother on CBS. I subscribe to the 24 hour live feed, I stalk JokersUpdates.com & I watch Showtime After Dark. Obsessed? Oh totally. I won’t even deny it! Team Dan / Ian all the way!
Veggie Chips – I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing these are. And they’re kind of healthy.. right? Oh who cares. I love them.
Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade Unsweetened – This was my go to summer drink! Absolutely delicious!
Mint Mocha Iced Coffee from Wawa – If you haven’t had mint mocha, you haven’t lived. And I feel like only people who live near a Wawa are going to understand. I unfortunately do not so I had to take full advantage while I was down in PA / NJ!
This should be no surprise –
Taylor Swift – We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
Owl City & Carly Rae Jepsen – Good Time
