August Favourites +

Afternoon crumpets,

1st of September already cant quite believe it! This summer has absolutely flown by!

On to the favourites...

♥ Illamasqua Cream Blush in 'Promise' ♥
♥ Inglot Lipstick in '142' ♥
♥ Mac Eyeshadow Quad With 'All That Glitters', 'Naked Lunch', 'Patina' and 'Satin Taupe' ♥
♥ Max Factor Glide & Define Eyeliner in Black ♥
♥ Essie Van D'Go Nail Polish ♥
♥ Mac 109 Brush ♥

Illamasqua Cream Blush - This is the most perfect barie pink blush! I love it & in some shape or form i have used this blush pretty much every day for the past few weeks! I either wear it on its own or layer it! Illamasqua cream blushes are my favourite, they have amazing colour pay off & consistency and last all day! Worth every penny! ♥
Inglot Lipstick - I received this quite some time ago from the gorgeous Marcia and this has been my go to lipstick now for a while! Its a gorgeous light, sheer pink with a hint of shimmer and looks amazing paired with the illamasqua cream blush. ♥
♥ Mac eyeshadows - Even though i own 2 and a half mac eyeshadow palettes this quad has been my go to for the past few months! The eyeshadow combinations that can be made from naked lunch, all that glitters, patina and satin taupe is incredible! If i am being lazy i will just swipe all that glitters all over my lid or add some patina when im feeling a bit outrageous ;) ♥
Max factor Eyeliner - I received this in my goodie bag at the aussie event and it has been true love ever since! I have worn it every day since without fail, it is so quick and fool proof you cant go wrong! ♥
Essie Van D'go - I believe that this nail polish is the marmite of the blogging community, some girls love it and others hate it! I personally love it and think the colour is definitely worth it! I received this from the wonderful Dannii on twitter so thank you ever so much! ♥
Mac 109 Brush - What can i say about this brush? It sheds quite a bit, well every time i use it actually! But it is a perfect match for the illamasqua cream blushes! I use this to stipple it on my cheeks and then buff it in! ♥

♥ Swatches ♥
Thats it for my favourites this month girlies! What have you been loving?

Take care :)
