August Favourites 2017

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.

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.

I know there isn’t much here, but in all honesty not much happened in August. A lot of my time was spent with my dog, as he had his operation on his knee. Which meant I wasn’t trying new products.

Thank you for reading!

    I absolutely love jumpsuits. I find them the most practical thing to wear in the evenings on holiday, I couldn’t stop wearing mine. Quiz do some gorgeous jumpsuits, and I would highly recommend them as they’re such good quality for the price. Hope your little pup is doing well from the operation!

    That Estee Lauder perfume sounds soo dreamy and I love the look of that Crown Lip Stain! I own the Sleek Solstice palette and I do love it, but I’ve since seen the Cleopatra Kiss highlighting palette and the shades definitely look more wearable in that one xo

    Ooh all of these picks look so lovely! Enjoying those warmer tones at the moment – have a lip stain in a very similar colour. I think those orange and red shades are such a lovely alternative to black, especially with a hint of sparkle in the inner corner – perfect for autumn!

      It is a really great palette! Same here, people definitely went mad for it! It’s really pigmented xx

  19. 22nd September 2017 / 4:44 pm

    I’m so interested to try out the Crown lipstick. The color looks so beautiful! But does it try your lips? I’m always so afraid about that!

    • 22nd September 2017 / 5:02 pm

      It’s such a great product! I tend to find all liquid lipstick drying, but if I use a scrub and a lip balm before then it’s fine xx

  25. 24th September 2017 / 1:42 pm

    That crown palette looks lovely ! What are the matte shades like ?

    • 24th September 2017 / 1:45 pm

      It’s a really great palette! The matte shades need a little more work, as they aren’t as pigmented, but the build nicely xx

  26. 24th September 2017 / 8:51 pm

    I love favourites post! I’m loving the look of the bits from Crown Brush, I’ve never tried any of their products before!

    Jumpsuits are some of my favourite pieces of clothing but I find it so hard to find ones that fit me properly. Nonetheless, most stores have a great variety of patterns, designs etc which are all so lovely. I love the look of that lip product
