| August Favorites |

August is over which means the summer is coming to an end. I love the fall and everything about it, but my heart will always belong to summer. I'm really dreading the cold weather and the whole getting dark out at 5 PM thing, maybe it's time I move to a place where the summer never ends? 

Anyways, a new month means a new monthly favorites post. Here's my August Favorites! 

August Favorites 

Favorite Skincare Product: Philosophy Beach Party Shower Gel & Bubble Bath

This is literally summer in a bottle. I've used it throughout August and there's still some left, I plan on finishing it off this month. Although September is here, fall doesn't technically begin until later in the month, so I'll be holding onto every last bit of summer until then. Philosophy is such an amazing brand and I love their products, including this one. It leaves my skin feeling soft and it smells amazing!

Favorite Face Product: Lorac Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer

I usually only work with matte products on my face because my skin is oily and I'm always focused on combating the oil. I used this primer under a matte foundation actually and the end result was absolutely stunning. My skin looked beautiful and glowing, not oily at all! 

Favorite Eye Product: Loreal Infallible Metallic Paints Eyeshadow

These might just be my favorite drugstore eyeshadows ever.  The colors are gorgeous, especially the purple one! They're also very pigmented, blend smoothly, and last all day! 

Favorite Lip Product: Revlon Ultra HD Metallic Matte Lip Color in HD Glam

I can't say all the shades in this line by Revlon are my favorite because some just don't work well. This color, however, is so gorgeous and perfect for that summer to fall transition. I've been really big on the metallic lips trend and I'm so happy I found this one!

Favorite Hair Product: Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray

I've had this blowout spray for a while now and I recently started using it again this past month and it's such an amazing product. No other product can make my hair look or feel as good as this one.

Favorite Nail Polish: L.A. Colors Color Last Nail Polish

These nail polishes are so amazing. They provide long lasting color and they look super shiny, even without a top coat! I currently have the shade Potential on my toes and I'm obsessed. 

Songs I've had on repeat this month:

All My Love - Cash Cash (Feat. Conor Maynard)

Run For Cover - The Killers

Those are all of the things I've been loving this past month! What are some of your August Favorites? I'd love to hear, leave me a comment!

Also, if you'd like to see a more in depth review of any of the products mentioned in this post, let me know and I'll make it happen!

  1. The Philosophy Beach Party Shower Gel and Bubble Bath sounds like a great product, I definitely have to try! Do you have to reapply the metallic matte lip color? I know with some matte lip products, you have to keep reapplying because it dries out.


    1. This one needed to be reapplied once, but other than that it was good all day long!
