Happy end of August!

How what whyyy. That’s impossible.

I’ll quit being cliche early so we can talk about our favorite things! Be a bad example. Tell me what you’re loving.

There was about a week and a half where I barely wore makeup (or none at all – like at all) while on vacation, so I just have a few favorites here for the month. I haven’t been drying my hair, but from being in the sun it can feel a little straw-like at times and I am telling you that this It’s a 10 spray is SAVING it. It is so much healthier than it has been. I don’t know why I didn’t love this as much a few years ago. I do use it sparingly, maybe twice a week. Also!! These skyn eye gels – still adoring. I’ve been in a major face mask mood this month. Also again, Eddie and I BOTH keep using our voxy voyage bags when traveling. It’s kind of funny – he might be more obsessed than I am. He took them to Europe!

K on to this month’s faves…

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipstick in Liv It Up. My friend Natalie bought one of these and I was like… I have to have this. It’s so pretty. The scent is wonderful. The shape is awesome. I want more shades for fall. Liv It Up sort of reminds me of MAC Creme Cup (a huge fave of mine) but a little more pink and a little more matte.

Clarins Instant Light Lip perfector. I’ve wanted this for a few years and just never bit the bullet. First, it smells (and tastes) like cake. Second, it’s super moisturizing. Third, I love the glossy pink natural color. It’s perfect for a no-makeup makeup look.

Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops in Sunilght. I seriously cannot get enough of these. This is a repeat but I’ve really been loving a different color this month since I’m sliiiightly more tan from being on vacation. The sunlight shade is glowy tan in a bottle. These are so perfect for face and body.

RMA makeup remover wipes. LOVE THESE. Oh my gosh. They are wipes made with only coconut oil. I realize that sounds ridiculous since I could just use regular coconut oil (and sometimes do), but the only time I use wipes is when I can’t bear to do anything else, and that includes dipping my fingers in a jar of coconut oil. These are incredible. They are individually wrapped. Perfect for traveling or keeping in your purse. AND moisturizing!

Essie Gel Couture Polish in Make the Cut. I am still really loving this polish! And this shade is such a great transition color into fall.

Sol De Janiero Bum Bum Cream. AHHHH. I cannot take how much I adore this. I know this is also a repeat but the scent! The shimmer! The texture! It’s my favorite thing. I’m afraid it’s too summery to wear into fall (I’m weird about certain scents and like to keep them seasonal to bring back nostalgic memories – am I nuts?) so I’m using it after every single time I shower. I also bought a little travel size one for vacation and it’s a great size.

The Estee Edit Flash Illuminator in Spot Light. Again… yes… I need another cream highlight like I need a hole in the head. But I just can’t resist. UGHH. The texture of this is awesome. It’s obviously super light and white and while it works on my skintone now, it will REALLY work come winter. Sometimes I just use concealer and this on my cheekbones if I’m really in a rush.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon. My eyes nearly exploded out of my head when I saw this existed. I ordered the Nirvana Black a few years ago when it was out early for preorder and have been a huge fan ever since. Anything warm, vanilla, musky and cologne-like sells me. Total perfume junkie. So bourbon? HELLO. I’m there.

That’s it! I’m dying to try the Farmacy honey potion mask and I’m sure I’ll want a few things for fall, but I might try to wait it out for the VIB sale in November. It’s only, like, two months away (whhhaaaat) so I think that’s doable. What are you loving right now?!
