August Favourites

Hey everyone! So September is officially here, and that means it’s tie for August Favorites! August went by pretty slow for me . . . . but maybe that’s because I had to move! So here are the things I have been using and (sort of) loving this month!

Benefit You Rebel Lite: This is the thing that I’ve been using, but not really loving this month. Basically I’m using it to use it up. I used to love this stuff but I find that it makes me really oily throughout the day. ugh. I like it enough to use it up while I’m at school, but I’m not planning on repurchasing this.

Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup. I use this to blot my face after the Benefit You Rebel Lite. This does a good job of blending the tinted moisturizer in my skin ( I find the tinted moisturizer can sometimes look a little dark or yellow on me) and helps get rid of any excess shine. This is technically a pressed powder foundation, so it helps add a bit of coverage to my face.

MAC Dashing Lassie Palette. When it’s 8:00 in the morning and I have to mosey on over to Political Science, I use this palette. These neutrals are pretty fool-proof, which is perfect when I’m not fully functioning (aka before I’ve had my first cup of coffee!). I really like Magical Mist and Showstopper from this palette!

And last, but not least, here are the other eye products I’ve been loving. Maybelline’s One by One has been a standby for me for the summer, and I’m continuing to use it at school. It’s got a great brush and formula, so I don’t need to work with the mascara a lot to get the effect I want.

Milani’s Liquifeye Pencil in Brown is fast becoming my favorite eyeliner. I will go out on a limb and say that I prefer these to my beloved Rimmel Exxaggerate liners! They last a lot longer, the colors are more pigmented, and they last forever on the waterline. I want to pick one of these up in every color!
