Monthly Favourites – August 2017
Here we go, introducing my first ‘Monthly Favourites’ blog post for August 2017. A run down of my top five absolute must haves, fab new finds and all round go to products new and old.
First up is one of two beauty favourites I have chosen. Tanya Burr Cosmetics Lipsticks in Pink Cocoa. If you haven’t tried any of this ladies make-up products I highly suggest you head to Superdrug and have a mooch through the range. Right now I am a big fan of nude lipsticks and this one keeps finding itself in my handbag on a daily basis. Pink Cocoa has been such a pretty pink shade for me over the summer. Tanyas lipstick formulation is super creamy, extremely pigmented and are enriched with vitamin E which makes them extremely moisturising. The packaging of all Tanyas products have a very high end look to them but these lipsticks beat the rest hands down. The metal casing is actually quite weighty and I love the simple gold design. Priced at £6.99* at Superdrug.
Favourite number two is another beauty product and my first ever purchase of the Better Than Sex mascara by Too Faced. I decided to grab the new waterproof mascara and boy this baby packs a serious lashy punch. (Lash…lashy… lets go with lashy) Since I have never used there original non waterproof version I can’t compare the two but I have to say this mascara does incredible things and has actually remained un-smudged after a full days wear, showering and a full nights sleep. Side note – I don’t make a habit of sleeping in make-up however I do work shifts that often result in me getting home at gone 3am. At this redonkulous time of the morning I give zero fucks about whats on my face and I will always sacrifice that 15 minutes for some extra sleep. Plus how are we to test these things if we don’t try right? This favourite is priced at £19* and is available from Too Faced online as well as other retailers.
Favourite number three is a skincare product from the wonderful Nip + Fab. Their Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads. You may have already seen my blog post on my first ever Nip + Fab haul back in July and I absolutely fell in love with the brand. So much so that when my hit the bottom of my first pot of Glycolic exfoliating cleansing pads I decided to try another pot from a different range. Welcome to my life Dragons Blood Fix Cleansing Pads. Oh how these have transformed my skin. Smooth even skin tone and visibly minimised pores. Perfection!! Nip + Fab is now my absolute must have in skin care. I recently grabbed these pads on offer at Superdrug for only £4.95* (r.r.p £9.95). Superdrug and Boots regularly have fantastic offers on Nip + Fab products and I highly recommend checking them out.
Next! 2 home items that go hand in hand. On a recent trip to TK Maxx I just couldn’t resist getting my Autumn on with this Sea Salted Caramel flavoured ground coffee… and I may have worked my way through half the bag already. It is delish! No other words. It does smell so sickly sweet in the bag but I guarantee you that is not reflected in the taste, just a perfect hint of salted caramel goodness. If I can find another bag I will be getting another for sure. This was priced at £4.95*. What better to pair my new coffee find than drinking it from my new Sass and Belle ‘Better Latte Than Never’ mug that I got in their sale. Ok I’m not drinking a latte but it’s still coffee right? Priced at just £3.50*! Adorable. There are some other really cute mugs in their sale section right now. Perfect for getting in some early Christmas pressies!!
There we have it! My first monthly favourites blog post. I will do my absolute best to keep these up on a regular basis. I love reading favourites posts, they are one of my top blogger reads. Thank you for stopping by!
