August Favourites

august favourites

August is pretty much dunzo. I know some of you will be a little disappointed in that, but  I love Autumn. I love berry colours, the copper tones and wearing layers so I'm excited for the change in seasons. My favourites however truly reflect the summer. Light bases, bronzey goodness and luminous skin were my picks over the last 30 days and I'm excited to share them with you!

I can't believe I've only had this BareMinerals' Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream for a month. I feel like I've been chatting about it all summer. And it feels way too close to my heart to be this new to my collection, but alas it is! What can I say about this that I haven't already said? It's basically a joy. Lightweight, matches my skintone, gives the perfect amount of coverage. It's the stuff of dreams.

Next up is a sample that blew me away and now I am jonesing for the full size. It's Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Moisturiser. Now moisturisers don't usually tickle my pickle. Let's face it they are a little bleh... albeit necessary, but this one hit the spot for one reason - it immediately soaks in when you apply it. And for me that is a big deal. In the morning, when I am applying layers of moisturiser, SPF, primer, you want everything to sink in fast, but still do its job and this really does. I'm seriously considering picking up the full size even though it's more than a little expensive.

One that I reviewed a couple of days ago and is definitely worth a mention is the Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist. I have been spraying this stuff like crazy. Before I apply my makeup, after, during the day, whenever I can basically grab the bottle and spritz. It's pretty much a dream spray as it sets makeup, gives a dewy look and makes everything look fresh. I like it so much that I am considering buying the Pixi Glow Mist because that looks yummy too. 

Finally, an old favourite. I thought it was about time that I bought myself a new Honey Bronzer from The Body Shop. I had well and truly hit pan on my old one and it was looking a little worse for wear. Now that I have a shiny new one I've fallen back in love with it. I'm not going to ramble on about how great this is because chances are you've seen, you've heard, you know. All I'm going to say is that this is my favourite bronzer and nothing compares.

It was short and sweet this month, but I truly love all of these and am really enjoying using them. So what do you think about my picks?
