AUGUST FAVOURITES

Halooo everyone! August has flown by like it's nobody's business and I'm not complaining.When August come to an end, you know what that means? Spring has sprung! I will be attending Melbourne Spring Fashion Week this coming Friday and eeeek! I got my dress a few of days ago and I'm ready for it babyyy. This month I have quite a  few skincare products to share with you guys. I love finding new skincare products to try out and always on the look out for ways to better my skin. I actually love doing my skincare regime day and night. Some would think of it as a chore but for me, I think it's very therapeutic. The early you start caring for your skin, the better you're going to aged. Without further ado, my first favourite product is..
Lanolips Golden Ointment
LANOLIPS Golden Ointment

I got this saviour when Priceline had a skincare sale. Usually I wouldn't reach for this as it's so pricey. I think the packaging is so luxurious and pretty with the lemony background and golden font. My oh my, this stuff is da bomb! I use this every night before going to bed on my lips and the next morning my lips feels super moisturised and smooth. I love a good multi-purpose product and this is it. This is not only great for your dry lips but also great for any dry areas on your body, such as those horrible cracked heels. The consistency is very thick and greasy. If you choose to use this on your hands or feet, I'd recommend wearing gloves or socks before bed. This product is very nourishing and it contains all natural goodies in it that is very beneficial for the skin. I find that the smooth moisturised feeling lasts for majority of the day, which is pretty darn amazing.
Indeed Labs Hydraluron Serum
INDEED LABS Hydraluron Serum

Unless you have been living under a rock, you probably have heard bloggers raved highly of this product 24/7. I don't blame them. This product deserve its own spotlight. I have to admit though,when I first used it, I didn't think it did anything to my skin. However after using it for a month, I have noticed that my skin constantly feels plump and hydrated. It felt like I had drank gallons of water to achieve that, but really it was all because of this product. It minimizes my pores and leaves my skin feeling baby smooth. I use this before my moisturiser, and it just helps absorbs the product into the skin really well. It's a clear gel consistency and isn't sticky at all. It is definitely great if you're going into the drier, cooler Winter months! 

Benefit They're Real Push-Up Liner
BENEFIT They're Real Push-Up Liner

Another well talked about product within the blogger-sphere. I feel like you either love it or you hate it. Personally, I adore it. The first time when I used it, I fell heads over heels for it. It is much faster doing the wing liner look with this than with my other gel liner. It is so opaque black and it doesn't budge for the entire day. The struggle is real when you try to remove this. I don't own the Benefit remover which I should probably invest in to make my life easier but meh. I think that if you're a pro at applying eye-liner, then you are better off saving a few bucks not purchasing this. After using it a few times, I find that a lot of product is wasted. Sometimes, too much product comes out and you have to get rid of it otherwise it just clumps up. Other than that, I'm quite happy with it.

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray
STILA Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stingray

I have been searching high and low for an eye liner that stays on the waterline and tightline, and I'm happy to say that I have finally found it! I have been using this for tightlining, which is a step that I never skip to give an illusion of fuller lashes and define my eyes. It honestly doesn't budge at all. I really like this packaging, where it doesn't require me to sharpen it. It glides on very easily and the colour pay-off is amazing. There are also seven other shades to try out. 

Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream
ANTIPODES Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream

This is my current favourite eye cream for good reasons. I feel that it is very nourishing for under my eyes. The light and thin consistency makes it very easy to apply and absorbs nicely into the skin. It's fragrance free which is great for sensitive skin, to avoid any irritation. It's so nice that all the ingredients in this little pot contains all yummy goodness such as; kiwi seeds, avocado, carrot seed oil and aloe gel. I have noticed that my under eye area looks slightly brighter and my panda eyes have slightly reduced. Yay to that! The price tag is pretty heavy but a little goes a long way. This will definitely lasts you a while and is definitely worth the money.

T2 Tea Cup
T2 Tea Cup

To round up my August faves, I thought I would throw in a random item that I have been obsessed with. It is my uber cute tea cup from T2! Just look at it! Very Alice in Wonderland-esque. When I saw the monochromatic display in the shop, my eyes were wide open. It was love at first sight and I just had to get it. Impulse purchase? Yes. Regrets? Never!

SAYONARA WINTER! It's been fun.

  1. How cute is that tea cup! I've been wanting to buy a cute tea set lately. I agree with you on the Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner, although it was kind of hard to get used to at first, I really like it! I've never tried the Stila liner though. It sounds amazing! I'm definitely going to have to pick it up soon. Great favorites, girl! :)
