August Beauty Favourites

It's that time of the month again where I gather up all of my favourite beauty based products that I've been loving during the month of August. Isn't it insane how fast this year has gone and how close we are to Christmas? My inner child is just waiting to burst out in excitement. 

Anyway, let's get down to the nitty gritty. Well it's mainly makeup based with a little fragrance thrown into the mix. I'm normally one to stick to the same things but I've been sticking to my guns and decided to delve through my makeup(and purchase more,oops) in order to see if I can find any new favourites.
August Beauty Favourites
First of all is the Hollister Silver Strand Beach Mist. Oh my my my, honestly this smells incredible. It is a very refreshing scent and so it instantly awakens me in the mornings. I've been spritzing this body mist daily and carry it in my handbag everywhere. I have another body mist in another scent too but this is without a doubt my favourite of the two. No doubt there will be a review on these soon.

I have a new brow favourite. I am a total perfectionist when it comes down to my brows and I very rarely change up my brow routine and tend to stick with what I know. After reading many rave reviews about the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz I purchased it and it's safe to say I have no regrets. It's honestly amazing. I do take a while doing my brows to get them 'on fleek' and I can do this within minutes. It is so quick and easy to use, super pigmented and best of all, it suits my hair colour(I have the shade Medium Brown). What else can I say? I adore it. 

Oh and I also have two new lip product favourites too, both of which are in the nude category. First up is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood. Somewhat of a cult lip product and one I haven't put down. It suits me down to a tee and I never have to reapply as it stays put all day. The other nude lip offering comes from the new Kate Moss Nude Lipstick collection(hardly new, it released over a month ago). It is the shade 45 which is a mauvey toned, brown shade. It has a very moisturising formula and stays put for a good 2-3 hours at least.

For once I have a hair favourite. It has been a long time coming but I have made  a switch from using the Tangle Teezer to The Wet Brush. It's incredible what a change in hair brushes can do. The Wet Brush glides through my hair with ease, no tugging or pulling and makes brushing my knotty hair after a bath/shower completely painless. 

I jumped on the bandwagon again after multiple positive reviews of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara made its way into the blogosphere so of course I had to give it a go. It makes my lashes look a lot more noticeable and longer in length. It looks a little like you're wearing fake lashes(not that I've used them before), they're too much of a bleeding nightmare to apply. I don't want to say too much as there will be a full detailed review on this beaut within the next couple of days or so, so keep updated if you'd like to know more. 

What have you been loving in the month of August?
