○August 2014 Favorites○

I must say that I cannot believe August is already over!!!! Where has this year gone???? But I’m pretty excited actually because that means fall will be here soon, Christmas is only in a little over 3 months, and I get to do my August Favorites! 🙂 This month I was super minimal on the makeup.. For some reason I was really lazy this month? Who knows.. 🙂 But I rediscovered some old favorites so I am excited to share those with you. I also was obsessed with clothes and jewelry this month, so let’s get started! 🙂

**Beauty Favorites**

First up is my NARS Larger Than Life Lip Gloss in “Odalisque” which is a cantaloupe color. I was obsessed with this shade when I got it, but I had since forgotten about it. I used it a lot this month and fell in love with it again. I’m a sucker for peachy lips (peachy any type of makeup really) so I’m just obsessed with it. The only bad thing I will say is that it’s pretty sticky so if you don’t like that you won’t like this lip gloss most likely. Also, a tube of this is $26 so that kinda stinks too, but to me it’s worth it.

I also have used my new Lorac Pro Palette2 like this crazy since I got it this month. I’ve not experimented with it much yet (since I’ve been so lazy with my makeup) but I’ve liked the looks I’ve created so far. This palette is absolutely wonderful! If you are new with eyeshadow and don’t have a lot then I would totally recommend this palette (and the first one) to you. I’ve said before that they are pricey, but you get an eyeshadow primer AND 16 shadows! That’s a great deal if you look at it that way. It’s perfect because it’s half matte and half shimmer so you can create tons of looks with it! This one is cool toned whereas the first one is warm toned. If you look at them on Ulta’s website (which is where I purchased mine) they both have excellent reviews so you (most likely) wouldn’t be wasting your money if you purchased one (or both)! I love them and I’m glad I have both.

Since it’s summer & I’ve been super lazy with my makeup, a lot of days I have been wearing one (or both) of these products on my lips & cheeks. They are super handy since you can use one product for 2 parts of your routine (I love products like that). They are a little pricey at $25 each, but since you can use it for a lip stain and blush AND you only need the tiniest bit, it is worth it to me. I have the color “Guava” which is a coral color and the color “Lychee” which is more of a hot pink, they are both stunning!

Next up is my MAC Lipstick in “Rebel.” Now I know that I am breaking out the dark, fall lipstick a wee bit early, but I’m obsessed. I just recently dyed my hair dark and I love wearing dark lipstick with it, especially if I’m wearing black or another dark color, I just love the whole combo. I just can’t get enough of this lipstick and even though it’s summer I have still rocked it a few times. I’m just more than ready for fall so I can start wearing it A LOT. 🙂

**Fashion Favorites**

As you can tell, I am obsessed with cardigans and button downs. I can match up pretty much any colors together and I love the outcome. I purchased four new cardigans from J. Crew Factory and I have worn three so far and paired them all basically the same way, but it’s just kind of my style right now.

I’ve been obsessed with these brown flats from Target and these black flats from H&M. I wear these shoes ALL the time.. both pairs at least twice a week. They are just so versatile that they will go with any type of outfit.

**Random Favorites**

I have been obsessing over my Chi Iron Guard heat protectant. I spray this in my hair before I dry it or use any type of heat on it so that it doesn’t get too damaged. Now that I’ve recently dyed my hair I need all the extra help I can get to make it healthy.

I have also been loving my Victoria’s Secret “Incredible” Perfume. This is my 2nd bottle and I just love the smell. It’s listed as having ” Bright Magnolia, Sparkling Pear & Sultry Sandalwood.” It smells delicious, especially for summer! 🙂

These were my favorite songs during the month of August. I’ve listened to them about 100 times lol! They’re great, go have a listen if you haven’t yet!

Taylor Swift “Shake It Off”

Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj “Bang Bang”

Please let me know in the comments what your August Favorites are, or link to your blog if you have a post on it so I can check it out! 🙂

    1. Yes, they are both beautiful! It’s just perfect because each palette has 8 matte and 8 shimmer, and one is cool toned and the other warm toned.. So basically you’ve got pretty much every kind of eyeshadow you would need (if you like neutrals)! Thanks for reading & commenting! 🙂 xoxo
