Monthly Beauty Favourites #5 August

August Beauty Favourites

Another month is gone and we are quickly approaching Autumn, how crazy is that! It seems like the Summer has started only a week ago. And in no time we'll be wearing warm jackets and scarfs and buying Christmas gifts.
Anyway, I'm going to tell you today about my latest favourite beauty products. I still absolutely love the ones from my July's post but here's some new discoveries that I enjoyed using in August.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Advanced Correcting Serum ( RRP £16.99 ) - I've been using this serum for the last month and I really love it and definitely see improvement in my skin tone and texture. It claims to refine skin texture, tighten pores and even skin tone. I will probably review this product in more depth some time soon but already I can tell you it's a great serum that rivals more expensive ones.
Rimmel Natural Bronzer in 022 Sun Bronze ( RRP £5.99 ) - I hardly ever contour my face or use bronzer but just recently I reached for this one that was sitting in my drawer for a few months and fall in love in the way a bit of bronzer can change the look of my make up. My face is slightly lighter than the rest of my body as I try to use SPF50 daily so I need to warm up my complexion and this bronzer does the trick perfectly. It's a nice shade for my skin and just gives me a lightly bronzed sun-kissed look without being too much. It seems like it contains the tiniest amount of shimmer in the pan but on my face it looks completely matt. It's nicely pigmented and it lasts on my skin for most of the day. I love it and reach for it every day.

L'Oreal GlamMatte Intense Matte Gloss in Cherry Crop ( RRP £7.99 ) - I reviewed already this liquid lipstick so I won't be going into much details now but so you know I really like it and it was my go to lipstick when going out for the last few weeks. I love the shade which is a beautiful bright red with pink undertones, super Summery. The lipstick itself is not very long lasting but it leaves an even stain on the lips which actually lasts ages. I bought already another shade, more Autumn appropriate, so keep your eyes peeled for another review :)
OFRA Eye Shadow in Bliss - I received this eye shadow in one of the Love Me Beauty boxes and unfortunately the brand is not easily available in UK which is a shame as the quality of this eye shadow is amazing. It's a gorgeous shimmery champagne colour that is very soft, easy to blend and lasts all day. I love to use it all over my lid with some matte brown shade in my crease for a beautiful, simple eye look, perfect for a bold lip which I've been embracing lately.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ( RRP £19) - just recently I posted a review of this product so now I'm going to tell you only that it's the best mascara I've ever used and one that will be terribly missed when is finished. I love it.
