I love the month of August! Cooler temperatures, football is back on TV, and we’re one month away from Fall, my favorite season. August is also my birthday month, and I have plenty of things from the past month that could fill 10 blog post! Instead, I will select three and feature the others in next month’s post. Check out a few of my favorites from August!
- Rihanna Puma Slides in Grey
I am usually not the one to run out and buy celebrity products but I just HAD to have these slides. I was dropping hints about them to PJ leading up to my birthday and he clearly got the message. Now, in MY opinion, you aren’t supposed to wear these outside of the comfort of your home. I think of these as luxury house shoes. The only time I’ll wear these outside of my house is when I go on vacation. However, to each his/her own. If you want a pair they retail at $80 and are constantly sold out, especially the grey pair. You can buy them here.
- Tarte Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment
As I mentioned in my April Favorites post I suffer from dark circles under my eyes. I use color corrector but that is only helpful if I am wearing makeup. For days I want a fresh face I opt for an eye cream to help brighten my eyes and make me look more alert. I used this eye cream by tarte before, but after it ran out I tried other brands but was left disappointed. So on a recent trip to Sephora I had to pick it up. It is on the expensive side ($38) but a little goes a long way. My last one lasted me about 4 months so it is worth the splurge. You can find it at Sephora or Ulta.
- NYX Baked Shadow in Lavish
I love NYX products. They are affordable and have great quality. I went to Ulta looking for a highlighter and unfortunately did not succeed. I did however find this shadow. I swatched it on my skin and instantly fell in love. The color is very pigmented which a lot of drugstore brands lack. I plan to buy more colors from this line. You can find it at Ulta for $5.99.
