August Beauty Favourites

Can you actually believe tomorrow is September 1st? I am so excited for this month because it's my birthday month and my little boy is starting playschool!! I am so nervous but excited also. Anyway this post is all about products I have been loving this month. 

The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Cleansing Hair Scrub

If you follow me on my facebook page or snapchat (liploublog) you are most likely beyond fed up of hearing about this by now. I am actually like a broken record but it really is that good. When I wash my hair and include The Body Shop Fuji Green Tea Hair Scrub I get atleast an extra two days out of it before I need to wash it again. It leaves your hair squeaky clean, super shiny and it smells amazing. If you are interested in hearing more you can read my full review here.

Klorane Dry Shampoo With Oat Milk

Finding the right dry shampoo can be tricky especially with so many available on the market. I was hung up on finding one with no white mask when I sprayed it however after trying quite a few I discovered that for me, they just don't work as well. I started using the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk months and months ago and really like it. It was initially gifted to me to try by the brand and I have since repurchased it. It does give out a white cast when you spray it but it literally disappears instantly when you brush your hair.

Clarins SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask

The change in the weather has left my skin a little dry and dull looking so I started using the Clarins SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask and I really like it. Following my usual cleansing routine I apply a generous layer and leave it soak into my skin overnight. When I wake up my skin is soft, smooth and hydrated. It also has that really glowy, dewy skin we all look for. The main ingredient of the Clarins SOS Comfort Nourishing Balm Mask is the wild mango butter. Mango butter is rich in fatty acids which nourishes the skin and protects is from dehydration. It also provides suppleness and comfort so definitely one to have on the bathroom shelf if you have dry skin. 

Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipstick

I LOVE a matte liquid lipstick especially when they are comfortable on the lips and when they last. I am pretty sure the Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Catsuit Lipsticks are only new out but my God they are gorgeous. I have one in the shade Rebel Rose and I almost had to hide it from myself because I was just wearing it every single day and my other lipsticks weren't getting a look in! I like it because as I mentioned it is comfortable and it lasts. It goes matte pretty quick but not so quick that you have to rush your application. I fully intend on picking this up in all shades available.

CND Vinylux Weekly Polish Married To The Mauve

I don't know where to start when describing my love for the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish because they are just so, soooo good and that's coming from someone who has worked in the nail and beauty industry for the past five years! Most salons I have worked in used CND Vinylux Polish and I use it all the time at home because incase it isn't already obvious, I think it is the best nail polish available. I want to highlight the shade Married To The Mauve because it is perfect for the Autumn Winter season. I am wearing it at the moment and currently posting a video every two or three days to my Snapchat and Instastories to show you all how it is lasting. I am currently on day five with no chips whatsoever and it is still super shiny. I plan on doing a really detailed blog post all about the CND Vinylux Weekly Polish soon where I will give you all my professional tips and tricks for the perfect application. 

Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow

I am including the Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow in my August Monthly Favourites but honestly I could include it every month because I always use it. I wear either shade 3 or shade 5 depending on whether I am wearing makeup or not and it is one of the quickest and easiest brow products I have ever used. I either use it on my bare eyebrows to give them more definition or I will use it over my favourite eyebrow gel to again add definition but also to add longevity. There are many similar and more affordable brow volumizing fiber gels and I have tried and tested a lot of them but none of them are half as good as the Benefit Gimme Brow. 

JOKO Glow Primer

I have mentioned the JOKO Glow Primer on here and on my Facebook and Instagram a few times over the past few months because I have been loving it!! It can be used a few different ways but my favourite way is to warm a little bit up on the back of my hand and dab in onto the high point of my cheekbones and it gives such an unbelievable glow to the skin. It can also be worn all over as a primer or as a base for powder highlighters to intensify them. My favourite shade is 201 Love Yourself. JOKO is a relatively new brand to Ireland that I have been trialing and testing since it's launch and I am really enjoying their products. 

NOTE Cosmetics Full Coverage Liquid Concealer

I have been using the NOTE Cosmetics Full Coverage Liquid Concealer on and off for months now and not to state the obvious but it literally covers everything!! I am such a divil for staying up late and enjoying my child free time but then it eats into my sleep which leaves me with tired eyes complete with eye bags. I apply the NOTE Cosmetics Full Coverage Liquid Concealer in a large triangular shape across half my cheek area to brighten the entire under eye area. I apply it with the wand included and then bounce it into the skin using a damp beauty blender. 

Soooo that was my favourite beauty products for August. I would love to know what products you have been using over and over the past few months. I am so looking forward to September because it is my birthday month!! 

Chat soon you guys.
