August Favourites

September 07, 2016

Hello Sweeties! It's that time again my Mae's monthly favourites. I tried out a fair few new products this month, plus I gave a ton of my American products a proper trial. And I could not possibly be enjoying products without sharing them with you, so here ya go!

The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel 250ml - NZD $17.50

The Body Shop sell some of my all-time favourite shower gels. I love the formula and the way they clean my skin - plus they have some lovely scents on offer. I'm a personally fan of the fresh, fruity scents, and pink grapefruit is one of my staples. Smells delicious and it's pink. What more do you need in a shower gel?

Victoria Secret Bombshell Roller ball - NZD $25.43

I've been trying to expand my perfume collection for a while now. I've been collecting different roller balls and full sized perfumes from different brands and this is one is a more recent purchase. I got it in the states (see my USA Beauty Haul here) and have been wearing it ever since! It has a really floral, feminine scent which is perfect for a day perfume. Super girly and sweet, and it stays on for ages! Victoria Secret's #1 fragrance and now I can see why. I highly recommend and I'm so excited to try more fragrances from VS.

Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer - NZD $45

This bronzer makes me so happy. I am head over heels in love with this and I'm going to find it difficult to go back to any bronzer! For me there is just nothing comparable, the formula is such great quality and I'm going to be honest - that gold packaging is stunning. The colour itself is so well suited to my complexion, I cannot explain it. I find so many bronzers go orangey on my fair skin but this one does not have that issue. It's the perfect tone that brings warmth without the orange, and I find I can use it as both a contour shade and an all over bronze. Blends so easily, I never get a muddy contour or patchy bronze with this product. It smells like chocolate too which is just the cherry on the cake for me. 100% worth the money, I've tried so hard to use other bronzing products this month but in all honesty I've only used this!

MAC Satin Lipstick Brave - NZD $40

Another product I purchased in the states, I was so excited to wear this lip colour when I bought it. And I was right to be excited! It's a beautiful mauvey, purple toned shade that's something different to a nude without being too far out of my bold lip comfort zone. I've been wearing this lip endlessly and it compliments so many makeup looks. The satin finish is also up there in my lip colour ratings, it's not super matte and drying but it still has amazing lasting power and isn't super glossy either. The ideal medium finish for me!

Brandy Melville Bomber Jacket - No Longer Available 

Jackets in general are an all-year-round fashion staple for me personally, but this Winter the bomber has been my favourite. This over sized bomber from BM has been my go to item throughout August. It's so warm and comfy, and the material is so soft and silky. This seems to go with everything I wear and it gives my outfits a nice retro feel. Basically I feel like I've come straight outta Grease! 

What were your August picks?

Stay Sweet,
