August Favourites!

Hey Guys, 

I cant believe it's September already! Where did the year go?!
Sorry that a post every other day in August didn't go so well in the last week, Id been unwell after my birthday so I just didn't feel up to it and everything I did write wasn't worth publishing!

I found quite a few new obsessions in August and re found some old ones again, I've added another non beauty favourite at the end just as something a bit different too. 

Firstly and just a warning I'm not that great at describing scents so I suggest you go sniff this yourself as I wont do it justice! (This is where Blogger needs a sniff button!). Florabotanica has been the only perfume I've worn all month, which is an achievement. It's quite strong at first, dark and warm, very floral, I think its rose. I wouldn't say its a day scent but that's what I've been grabbing it for, its more of a night time scent. Plus can I just say, that bottle, 10 out of 10!

Next up is the eyelash curlers I received out of my GlossyBox last month by Emite Make up, A Swedish brand but you can get them in the UK, You can ready my GlossyBox post here to read a bit about them. Now I see why expensive eyelash curlers are a lot better than Primark.

Then I have my MAC eye shadow in All That Glitters, Which I would say is a rose gold eye shadow, That I've loved wearing with bronze eye liner, Brilliant for blue eyes, I love the combination of the two because it brings the blue out so well. It's really soft and blends so easily its a dream to use. 

I have to admit I have totally fallen for the Maybelline Baby Lips, Especially Hydrate, I reviewed them here. But I just love this one because of its taste and smell, I still wouldn't say its the most hydrating lip balm ever but the packaging and smell has won me over. Plus it seems never ending, I've used it loads and hardly anything seems to be gone! 

Then finally I have my new favourite lip combination Dior Pink Croisette - Reviewed here, and MAC Creme Cup, The two are lovely on they're own but when combined, they're amazing. I've loved pairing this with my All That Glitters combination. I think I might need to pick up the NARS Dupe for Pink Croisette before I fall too in love!

(Swatches- Left to Right: Blended All That Glitters, All That Glitters, Pink Croisette, Creme Cup with Pink Croisette, Creme Cup. The Swatches don't do any of these justice unfortunately!)

Then for my non beauty favourite I've been loving Lady Gaga's new song Applause, Plus the video, Lady Gaga knows how to come back with a bit of a bang! 

The only problem with this months favourites, I think I love them so much they'll probably be the same next month, all though now its September... I have an excuse to crack out the browns and the red lips! What have your favourites been this August? I always love to read others favourites too!
