August Monthly Favourites

August has gone by in such a flash, I cannot believe I go into the final year of my Psychology degree in two weeks. Where has all the time gone? I feel like I say that every month but I honestly feel like my life is on fast forward right now. You might have noticed that I have not been posting as regularly as I usually do. That's because I am trying to amass a large stockpile of scheduled post for when University starts back. With this being my final year I expect to get really busy with lectures and time in the research labs. So hopefully, starting from next week I can get back to my two-three times a week upload schedule!

With all that said and done, here is my August Monthly Favourites!

My Skincare Routine

I was away to title this post as my updated skincare routine, but I have realised that I haven't done one already. Nearly two years this blog has been running (!!) and I have never posted an insight into my skincare routine. Well that's all about to change!

It is a perfect pastel peachy colour which just fits amazingly with this great weather. One thing that I will mention that is negative, it that it chips a lot easier than any of my other Barry M Nail Paints; maybe the formula is a bit different?

The palette itself feels very sturdy, like I could take it travelling and not have to worry about any of the shadows smashing. The golden edging detail with the black polka dots make the palette look quite edgy and modern. The inside reveals a nice oversized mirror with a cute little quote in the corner.

There are fifteen eyeshadows in total; the majority are a warm neutral tone but there are a few pops of colour. The first five shadows are: Blonde, Bathwater, Skimp, Steady and Punk. Blonde is a very pale beige shade with a pinkish iridescent shimmer to it. With it being so pale I really had to dig my brush into it to achieve any type of pigmentation. Bathwater is a bolder …

New Favourite Budget Lipsticks

It has been quite a few weeks since I last posted, for which I can only apologise. My Macbook unexpectedly died and was not worth the money spent to repair so I had to wait a long time for my insurance to send out a replacement. Now that everything is back to normal I should be able to easily return to my three times a week posting schedule, although I cannot promise which days I will be able to upload.
