August Favourites

One of my favourite posts throughout the month is monthly favourites, i love seeing what other bloggers rate honestly and what they have been loving, so here's mine (on time for once!) 


First up is the Kiss Cosmetics Scrub Stick. This was actually one of the products i picked up at IMATS 2015 from their booth, i had heard of Kiss Cosmetics previously due to being part of the blogger forum, i was excited to see them there (as they are quite a new company) and i had also been looking for  a lip scrub similar to this one for a while. I have really dry lips most of the year and this has sorted them right out. This product combines sugar and balm meaning that after you have exfoliated it also moisturises! I would 100% recommend this, they RRP at £6.50.


Next up are two of the Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine polishes, the green on the right is the shade 'Cardamon' and the brown shade on the left is 'Cocoa' i actually bought these last year during the winter season but i love these colours, i think they are the perfect shade to use in the autumn and the hi-shine polishes by Barry M have always been a favourite of mine, i think they are super long lasting and they give a really nice salon-esque finish. 


Next is the freedom palette by Inglot, this is another product that i picked up from IMATS 2015. These freedom palettes are quite similar to the KIKO clic palettes which i have previously reviewed, you pick how many empty spaces you want, then you pick your shadows to go in. I picked up 397 on the left and 154 on the right, these colours actually go perfectly together which was completely unintentional when i was picking them out. The pigmentation in these is insane.. 397 is a lighter rose colour and 154 is a darker goldy colour. I normally pop 397 all over my lid and then blend 154 into the crease. The product stays on all day and there's no fall out, I'm loving these so much I'm considering expanding my Inglot collection. I also always get compliments on the shades! 



Next is the Insta natural age defying skin clearing serum*.. erm... hello my new go to spot treatment! This product is an absolute dream. I have been having really bad breakouts throughout the year and have just started using this product.. at first i was a little dubious to putting a serum on my face, however I'm so glad i did as I've really started to notice a difference.  Not only does this clear the skin it also balances out scaring and any uneven skin tones, it's full of fantastic ingredients including Vitamin C and Salicylic Acid. I've loved using this in my daily skin routine at night.. and would highly recommend it.. it also smells like oranges which is very refreshing! 


And last but not least is an oldie but a real goodie - The sleek blush in 'rose gold'. When i found this shoved to the back of my MUJI storage draws i instantly remembered how much of a gorgeous tone this is and how much it compliments my pale complexion. As the days have been getting darker and colder i have been reaching for this nearly everyday, the pigmentation is amazing for such a reasonable priced product and i love the gold flecks baked into the rose colour. I also find i don't use highlight when wearing this as the gold flecks do that for me. These blushes are so cheap for what they are and they have them in a few different shades!



What have been your august favourites this month, let me know in the comments so i can try them!

  5. Great post! I've have to go check out the Insta Naturals Ssrum now, as I've been dealing with such bad breakouts too. Nothing seems to work, so glad that you've actually noticed a difference with this one, sounds very promising!
