Yes I know this is extremely late, but other things came up and other posts were more important so this one has had to wait. My goal was to do a favourites post every month this year, as I have never done them for all of the months before, and I thought it would be fun to look back at the end of the year to see all of the things that I loved in 2017.
Let’s get into my August Favourites 2017.
Crown Brush Lip Stain Dusty Rose
As I was testing this out for a post, I pretty much fell in love. I just can’t get over how well it lasts, especially with eating and drinking. I know it’s a very dark colour, but I ended up wearing it a lot throughout the last summer month. It is a pinkish brown which I will be getting a lot more use out of in the coming months.
Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette
I bought this from Boots online ages ago, but it arrived broken and for some reason I just never reached for it. That was until August when I rediscovered it, and fell in love with the bottom right colour, which is Equinox. In all honesty I haven’t reached for the other colours, but Equinox is practically the only highlight I have been wearing recently. It is a really gorgeous copper peach with warm undertones.
Crown Brush 35 Rose Gold Eye Shadow Palette
In my review I mentioned that this is the only palette I used in August, and that’s partly due to the fact I didn’t wear much makeup throughout the month and this palette is insanely good! Since I have done a whole post on this I won’t go into it too much. The colours are perfect for Summer, but I’ll also be able to carry this into Autumn and Winter which is fab, and because it contains 35 shades I can create a number of different looks which is great.
Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Perfume
This is an incredible summer perfume, so of course I wore it practically everyday in August to get my wear out of it. It’s citrus with top notes of: Mandarin Orange, Ginger and Bergamot. Middle notes of: Jasmine Sambac, Coconut and Frangipani. Base notes of: Vanilla, Cashmere Wood, Musk and Amber. It’s not as tropical as I was expecting, but it is still a nice sunny fragrance that lasts all day.
I bought my first jumpsuit this month, and I am in love with it. It is extremely comfortable, and it looks good too. The one I have is from AX Paris, but I got it from New Look. It is a bit big for me, as they only had a size up left, but as it still looked alright and wasn’t noticeably big I got it. I am still on the look for more jumpsuits, as they are so comfortable.
Those were my August Favourites 2017.
