Hello gossipers! Hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine! I think like many other parents, I’m now counting down the days to when the kids go back to school. Here are a few things we have been loving this August..
Ovali Brush Collection
These gorgeous rose gold brushes have got to be my top favorite for August. Not only are they a beautiful colour, they are so soft and make applying your makeup so much easier and this finish is flawless! The 10 brushes in the image include:
Finishing Powder brush – RRP £18.00
Foundation Brush – RRP £18.00
Blush Brush – RRP £18.00
Blending Brush – RRP £16.00
Concealer Brush – RRP £16.00
Small Contour Precision Brush – RRP £14.00
Medium Contour Precision Brush – RRP £14.00
Eye Crease Precision Brush – RRP £12.00
Flat Top Eyeshadow Shader – RRP £12.00
Dome Top Eyeshadow Shader – RRP £12.00
I absolutely love how soft these brushes are on my skin. The fibres of these brushes are super fine to give you a really precise, even coverage. Standard makeup brushes simply don’t compare to these high-end luxurious brushes .
The Cohorted Ovali Brushes are available to order from Cohorted as either single brushes or full sets.
Homedics Foot Spa
The summer holidays have been amazing and I’ve really enjoyed spending quality time with the kids. But after a long day chasing them around the beach, all I want to do is collapse in a heap with a glass of wine and a good book. I also love to give my poor feet a good soak too. I’ve had foot spas in the past but I always struggled to find somewhere to store them. The best thing about this Homedics foot spa is you can fold it down to simply fit it in a drawer or tuck it away somewhere! You can find these fantastic foot spas HERE.
Fake Bake Beauty & Home Fragrance
You’ve probably heard of the popular self-tanning range from Fake Bake, but did you know they also have a gorgeous makeup, bath & body and home range? This month I tried out these fantastic products and I was more than impressed! First I tried the Dolce Dreams Sundae Sprinkles Shower Creme, the smell is absolutely heavenly. With the sweet raspberry ice cream scent and the vitamin E sprinkles, this shower gel is definitely one I’ll be buying again. Additionally, I also really loved the Dolce Dreams Lemon Meringue Body Whip this intense moisturiser left my skin so smooth and the amazing lemon scent lasted for hours after applying it. I have quite sensitive skin and I’m normally wary about what I use, but this luxurious whip was so cool and soothing.
Next up I tried the makeup range, I felt the nail varnish was a bit dark for this time of year as I like to wear colours that compliment the seasons. But I will definitely be saving it for Autumn/Winter time. However, I loved the eyeshadow palette, the blusher and the lipstick.
These four natural colours go perfectly with any look. The blendable colours make it easy to create your own personal style. My favorite thing about Fake Bake beauty is that it’s all cruelty-free. Being a huge animal lover, this is a must have for me when buying any products.
Colour Crave Smooth & Shine Lipstick Sheer Lust
This lipstick is a really pretty everyday shade and I’ve worn coral colours quite a lot during Spring and Summer, but this one has to be my favorite. I really love the creamy texture of this lipstick, It almost feels like my lips are being moisturised as well as looking great! I can’t wait to try out the other shades that Fake Bake offer.
Another absolute favourite! I feel as though for my skin tone, this blush is absolutely perfect. The duo blush with pink pigments make a perfect summer look. The blush gives you a gorgeous glow that looks very natural. Plus, you don’t need to use much at all so it will last you quite a while. The blush compliments a tan beautifully by giving you the appearance of sun -kissed cheeks without the sun damage.
This long-lasting subtle scent is very luxurious and reed defusers are becoming more and more popular, and they don’t have the fire hazard that comes with scented candles. As much as I love my candles, it’s nice to walk through the door to a gorgeous smelling home after being out all day. The scent of this reed defuser is very fresh, clean and crisp.
Seventeen Mega Matte Lipsticks
Mega Matte is a new range of lipsticks from the popular beauty brand SEVENTEEN. I first discovered this brand in my early teens and invested most of my pocket-money into it. Over the years, SEVENTEEN seems to have grown with me and I love all the new ranges they bring out.
Matte lipstick has become really popular recently. It definitely seems to last a lot longer and it stays where you apply it so you don’t end up with lipstick teeth! The SEVENTEEN range offers 12 shades to choose from so there’s something for everyone’s skin tone and style. The three pictured above are Violet Summer, Back To The Fuchsia and No Corals
My favourite has to be Back To The Fuchsia. I love the strong vibrant colour and it really compliments my skin tone. Although I love the fact these lippys last for up to 13 hours, I don’t really like how dry they make my lips feel. So I have been using a clear lip balm over the top. This doesn’t affect the long-lasting lipstick but it just makes your lips feel a bit more moisturised. You can buy These gorgeous lipsticks HERE.
