August Favorites 2014

During the month of August I've been loving a different variety of products.  For example a couple items I received in my Ipsy bag became instant faves and I've been using them non-stop all month long.  I have also rediscovered some products that have been in my collection for a while, but have either been overshadowed by other products until now, or simply forgotten.

Here are the products I couldn't stop using in August.

Caudalie Eau de Beauté
Living in France made me quite susceptible to purchasing higher end French skincare products. This raved about beauty water was one item I just couldn't leave behind. The scent is very relaxing and spa-like and instantly helps to soothe the soul.  I love using this midday when I feel my makeup needs a little refresher.  This is great stuff.  This bottle is almost empty but thankfully I just received another one :)

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I got this in my Ipsy bag and as soon as I tried it the first time, it was love at first application.  I adore this mascara and really really really want to purchase the full size.  It makes my lashes long and volumized and very very black. A+ for sure!

Jersey Shore Sun Mongongo Lip Conditioner
Also an Ipsy bag discovery this month, I've been reaching for it consistently since getting it.  I apply it before any other lip product when getting ready and I love the feel of it on and it's just a wonderful little product.

Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk
And the last Ipsy bag wonder of the month is this baby. I've been really enjoying this product because the scent is really pleasant and light. The product itself is also good.

Mac Pro Conceal and Correct Palette in Light
I purchased this a few months ago and didn't love it right away so I stopped using it and used the other concealers I had.  One day I decided I needed to give it another go considering this product isn't cheap and wasting my money never feels good. So I started using this regularly and realized how good it actually is! Maybe it's a warm weather product and works best in the summer, who knows. All I know is that

theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer
I've recently acquired this bronzer and I love it. theBalm never disappoints! It's quite a dark bronzer so I may not be able to use it in a couple months once I have become my ultimate pale shade of winter white, but for now it's definitely at the top of my list.

theBalm Frat Boy Shadow/Blush
Corals for summer? Who woulda thunk it ;)  Of course this blush has been a staple product during the summer and especially the last few weeks. It's matte so it's also great for a subtle flush when I'm at work and don't want my entire face to look like a disco ball.

There you have it! Another month has gone by and more products were loved.

What have y'all been loving in August ?
