August Favourites-

Here are my favourite products from the month of August, I say this each month but it seems like it had flown by this month! So here's what I have been loving in August-
Witch Oil Control Foaming Face Wash- This was in my last month's favourites but it stayed one of my favourites again this month I have really seen improvements with my skin and how oily it is, I still use this morning and night. This will definitely stay one of my favourites for sure.
Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pore&Shine Daily Scrub- I bought this at the beginning of this month as I had seen a lot of people saying this was a good face wash/scrub so I decided to pick it up, I have to admit I did the wrong thing by buying it at Tesco as it was £4 whereas at Superdrug is was £1.99 so I could of saved some money, But enough of that I have to admit by using this morning and night I have also seen an improvement by using this.
Rimmel Lipstick in 172 Metalic Blast- This lipstick is probably one of my oldest ones, I bought this a few years ago and never liked the colour but now I really like how the colour looks, Its a deep read with specks of shimmer running throughout it, This lipstick does have a few dupes for the colour of it which I might show in another post.
I love Blueberry&Smoothie Lipbalm- I had one of these a few years ago and saw this one in a local shop, The smell is very sweet but not over powering. It has a slight hint of blueberry in the scent but not too much, Inside the pot it is a baby blue colour but it comes out clear when you apply it to your lips, It is very moisturising which is why it has been one of my favourites.
Collection Cream Puff Lip Cream in Cotton Candy 1- I bought this as it was supposed to be a dupe to the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams so I decided to buy one and try it out, I bought the deep pink as that one was the only colour which I thought would go with my skin colour. I have to admit it does go matte when you apply it but can dry out your lips so I apply a lipbalm underneath when I apply it.
 Make-up Bits-
MUA Bronzer Shade 1- This bronzer was £1 from Superdrug, Which is incredible for how pigmented it is I was really happy when I first applied it. I have to admit you need to apply more than once for a full bronzed look but if your like me who likes a small shimmer on your cheeks this is great as it doesn't apply too much to your cheeks when you apply it.
Barbara Daly Oil-Free Foundation Shade Porcelain- I really like this foundation as it applies evenly to my skin but it is also the perfect shade for my skin colour, I am quite light so it's hard to find a foundation shade which fits with my skin. It does say Oil-Free but I feel like my skin can sometimes become oily if I don't re apply powder throughout the day, I really like the applicator with this foundation as it makes it easier to get the right amount of the product.
Revlon Colorstay Combination/Oily Skin Shade 110 Ivory- Again I really like this foundation as again it is a perfect shade for my skin I have to admit this has more pink undertones than the Barbara Daly one does, But this does last most of the day if I apply powder when I apply it to my skin, The only thing I dislike is that it doesn't have a pump which can be a pain when your attempting to get the right amount.
Collection 16 Hour Concealer in Shade 1 Fair- As you can see the writing has nearly disappeared from the front of the tube, I really do like this concealer as it is the right shade for me and I really like how it applies and stays on my skin all day.
Vivo Baked Blush in Rouge Shimmer- I had this in my July favourites but this month I have really liked it as it seems to add a nice highlight to my face when I apply it but it also adds a hint of a pink glow to my cheeks, I am really happy I found this blusher when I did. 
Eye Bits-
MUA Pro Brow- This is the compact I use for my eyebrow's, Inside it has 3 different shades of powder to fill in your eyebrows and then has a wax inside to keep them in place all day, I really like this as it helps me keep everything in one place but also one of the powders is the perfect shade for my eyebrows and the wax keeps them in place all day.
Collection Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner- I really like how easily this applies to my eyes leaving a nice thin line, I have to admit it says 24 hour felt tip liner but I highly doubt it would last 24 hours, It lasts around 6-7 hours at a push before it starts to smudge and leave black on my eyelids. 
Mega Volume Mascara- I found this mascara in a cheap shop but I have to admit it really does give my eyelashes volume, My eye lashes are quite long without mascara but with this on they seem to look even longer and thicker which is a bonus overall!
What's been your favourites this month?
