AUGUST FAVORITES: A COMPILATION

Today I bring you my August favorites. I want to mention that I didn't buy all of these products this past month, so this is a compilation of different things that made this month a little bit more exciting for me.

Kiko Cosmetics Colour Shock Long Lasting Eyeshadow in the color 104 SNAPPY BRASS

The first thing I want to talk about is this cream eyeshadow from Kiko. I got this one on sale for only 3 euros and i could easily say it was the purchase of the month. It comes in this beautiful little box and the eyeshadow color is even prettier.




The color is a mix of gold and bronze and the texture is very smooth and easy to apply. However, you do have to work fast because once it's dry, you're done.
Try this eyeshadow on a day where you feel like spicing things up but you don't have the time for a complicated makeup look.






Still talking about makeup, I'm going to give you quick review on 3 makeup products that i've been using non stop this summer. The first one is the SMOKY EYES pallet by H&M.

This palette comes with 3 shimmery eyeshadows (white, black and grey) as well as 3 matte eyeshadows (black, dark brown, and light brown). The shimmery eyeshadows are meant to be used on the eyes and the matte ones on the eyebrows, even though you can still give them other purposes.

The palette also comes with an angle brush and I've been using the dark brown matte shadow on my eyebrows all summer long

The second product I want to talk to you about is the YVES ROCHER Peau Parfaite 6 in One BB Cream.
I don't like to use high coverage foundation on my face, specially on summer. So this BB cream really comes in handy. It comes with a really pleasant citrus smell that only lasts through the application. It is very light and blendable, but still gives you the amount of coverage that you need.

The 3rd and last product I have to show you is the ORIFLAME Corrective Stick Purifying Oily Skin with Tea Tree Oil.

This concealer really gives you the extra coverage you need when you didn't sleep as much as you wanted to or when you're breaking out. The concealer has a green side (made to erase redness) and the other side is the concealer itself. It's really smooth and it doesn't crease, perfect!




Now, if you're like me and you don't like laying in the sun for hours to get a tan, here's the product for you.

Like the name says, this is a self tanning rapid mousse, as well as moisturizing. Because of it's consistency, you can apply it both quickly and evenly. The product gives you a little bit of color right after you apply it, but only after 1 hour you start seeing results.
Three hours after you've applied it you can definitely tell the difference and you can build up the color by applying it every other day until you reach your flawless tan.


Moving on to fashion items, I've been loving this top from ZARA. I also got it on sale this summer and it has been my go to top when I have no idea of what to wear.
It's a black top with a mesh material layer over it. It's a very light weight top piece which makes it easy to transition from Summer to the upcoming Fall (are you as excited for Fall as I am?)






Since I already talked to you about my go to top piece, It's time to tell you about my absolute favorite sandals. These are from ZARA and I bought them a few months ago. I was looking for a flat pair of lace up sandals when I found these on ZARA's website and quickly rushed to the store cause they were almost sold out. Besides being super comfortable, they're also really versatile and give any outfit a more sexy, laid back look.
