August has officially come to an end and that means that my summer vacation is over. I’m off to go back to school and start working again. I have to say that August was a very fun month for me. I went to Antwerp with my boyfriend and to Warsaw (again) with my best friend. I have bought a couple of really nice new products, I’ve tried out new things and I’ve rediscovered some products that I’m really in love with again. So, in today’s post I’m going to show you which products have been my absolute favourites throughout the month of August. If you’re interested in finding out which products made my heart skip a beat in August, make sure you continue reading this post!
Let’s start off with some deodorant favourites. July and August were both very, very humid months here in the Netherlands. During my vacations deodorant was definitely an essential for me. Normally I always stick to my beloved and trusted Lady Speed Sticks, which are still my number one favourites. But this month another product joined that group of deodorant favourites. I’m talking about the Dove Invisible Deodorant Spray. This is a spray that you can use on top of your clothes without it leaving behind marks or anything like that. And that’s really true! I always like to use spray deodorant on top of my clothes because that’s usually what ends up getting smelly, not my armpit itself. And this really helps with that.
In addition to the fact that it can be used on top of clothes, it also smells absolutely beautiful. Dove recently released a new scent, which is the pink one. But the original one might be even more amazing. I really love how both of them smell and I’m a big fan of how well they work for me!
And if that wasn’t enough for my Dove favourites of the month, I’ve also fallen in love with two of the Dove shower gels. Back in the hotel in Antwerp they had these Dove shower gels in every shower and I just fell in love with how nice they smell and how soft they make my skin feel. I loved them so much that I decided to get myself two bottles the day I got back. I ended up getting the original scent and a floral scent and both are beyond amazing. I might even review them sometime soon!
Moving on to some makeup favourites. My first makeup favourite of the month is a new mascara. All of my mascara’s were a bit dry so I decided to crack open a new one. The mascara I ended up using is the Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Mascara. And it really, really amazed me. Somehow I didn’t have incredibly high expectations for it, but you guys. It’s incredibly. It makes my lashes look super long, it’s amazing at separating the lashes and it makes them look really nice and full. It also stays in place all day long, it does not smudge and it doesn’t lose intensity throughout the day. This really is my new big favourite mascara. It might even be as good as my beloved Chanel Dimensions de Chanel Mascara.
Another eye favourite is this new eyeshadow palette I bought in Warsaw. I haven’t had it for a very long time, but I’ve been using it every day since I got it. It’s the Cool Neutral eyeshadow palette from the Dior Backstage range. When the range launched I fell in love with every product of it and so far this is the first product from the range I ended up trying.
I really love the shades that come in this palette. They look really flattering on my skin and eyes and well. The quality of it is just phenomenal. I’m not going to be too detailed about this palette because I’m planning on reviewing it sometime soon. But just know I absolutely adore this palette! It’s incredible.
A rediscovery I made this month is this Clarins primer. I bought this quite a while ago and used it a ton. When it started to near its end I suddenly stopped using it, but recently I decided that I wanted to start using it again. And that was the moment I really fell for this product, again. It’s just the prettiest primer ever. It has a really nice lotion like soft texture that blends really easily. It smells absolutely amazing and it really makes my makeup go on smoother and look prettier throughout the day!
The last favourite of the month is my new Tommy Hilfiger bag! I have been eyeing this bag for a very long time now. I actually wanted to buy it for myself as a gift for making it through the school year, but at that point it was sold out. Then, one day when I randomly checked the site I saw it was back in stock and I immediately decided to order it. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made because I’m 100% in love with this bag.
The bag holds quite a lot of stuff for what it is. It has two separate compartments that open with a zipper and a part in the middle where you can put some stuff you want easy access to. The interior is white and the hardware is golden. The bag itself is in a Tommy blue colour and has a red and a white stripe along the top. But that’s all I’m going to say about it, since I do want to do an in depth review of this bag sometime soon!
And that’s already it for today’s favourite post. I know I didn’t have a ton of favourites like I normally do, but these are some products I just really ended up falling in love with more than with other products I’ve tried and loved this month. Anyway, thank you so much for reading and be sure to let me know which products have made your August the perfect makeup month!
