I’m back! I’ve had a busy past few weeks here and I haven’t been able to keep up with blogging as much as I’d like to, but I’m hoping to get back into a normal schedule moving forward! I’d like to start off this week’s post by recapping my August favorites, so let’s get started!
First up is the sunscreen that I’ve been using all month by Neutrogena and it’s the Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock Broad Spectrum SPF 70. This is a really lightweight formula that does not have a strong sunscreen-y smell to it. I strongly dislike the scent of sunscreens and how thick and sticky they can sometimes feel, but this product is just the opposite of that! I also like that it’s non-comedogenic!
The next product has been my go to concealer for a bit now, but especially in the month of August and it’s the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Anti-Aging Concealer (if you haven’t read my recent post about it, you can check it out here 👉 My Go-to Under Eye Combo)! This provides the coverage that I’m looking for and it does not crease on me 🙌.
The last beauty product is also something that I’ve mentioned in a recent post, the Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals. The price point, the color payoff, the longevity – just 🙌! If you don’t own this already and you’re into highlighters, I highly recommend it! It also now comes in 6 different shades so I’m thinking there’s an option for everyone’s taste!
My first skincare favorite is the Foreo Luna Mini 2 Compact Facial Cleansing Device. I received this as a gift in July and have not stopped using it ever since. I find that I cannot use this at night if I’ve worn a full face of makeup (I broke out the couple of times that I tried to use this over my Clarisonic) but this has become my go to in the morning and on nights where I did not wear makeup during the day! It really does feel like a mini-massage which is a nice treat each time that I reach for it.
The other skincare item that I’ve been loving is this sample sized moisturizer by Estée Lauder, the Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Creme. I really am enjoying this product, but once it runs out, it’s out because the price point on this item is wayyy out of my price range for a skincare item! But if anyone is interested in it, it has a very pleasant light scent to it and the moisture that it provides is pure perfection. It makes my skin feel extremely moisturized without feeling like I have too much product on my face and my makeup sits on top of this beautifully.
The one nail polish that I wore a lot (but ironically not on the day that I took these photos) is from the new Fall 2017 collection by Essie and it’s the polish called Mixtaupe. This is described as a “warm ivory with a hint of pink”. If you’re into the off white nail polish colors, definitely check this shade out!
I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I love office supplies and wish that I could be a professional back to school shopper for people, and in the spirit of back-to-school shopping I’ve recently restocked on some of my favorite Sharpie items!
I LOVE the way that Sharpie pens write and how they don’t bleed through paper! And here are a few other random favorites from this month…
- MOVIE: Moana (I watched it 3 more times in the month of August 😆)
- SONG: Watcha Gon’ Do? by Puff Dadd ft. Notorious BIG & Rick Ross
- NETFLIX BINGE SHOW: I re-watched Parks and Rec, and per usual, loved every second of it!
- SNACK: Doritos Spicy Nachos
I hope everyone is having a great start to September!
