FAVORITES: AUGUST 2013 - MAKEUP (& HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTS)

Image
Hello Everyone,
Once again it's monthly favorites time and I'm sharing my best beauty products for the month of August. I did become sick around the 17th of August with flu ETC and was really sick so I didn't get to wear these beauty gems for 10 days, but went straight back to wearing them the last few days!

On the other hand some of these makeup items (ie the MAC Bronzer) I have been wearing them on and off for the last 5 weeks, but now I will share them as they have really passed in to the "love it" phase in my makeup bag, in it's 6th week :-)

REVIEW: BENEFIT STAY FLAWLESS 15 HOUR PRIMER

Image
Hello Everyone,
So when this Primer from Benefit came out I was SUPER Excited for it, I ordered it straight away and when it finally arrived in the mail, I went to try it that night, took all my makeup I was wearing off and used this for my night out!! The next morning and days to follow I have been using it everyday religiously. And now have my perfect idea how Oily skin girls (like me) can wear this and some other tips! As I personally find it's not the most perfect primer BUT you can make it near perfect :)

GET READY WITH ME - BOLD BERRY LIPS & SOFT SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP

Image
Hello Everyone,
Another Get Ready With Me - Speed Makeup Tutorial
It was requested that I use the Lime Crime Lipstick on Posionberry I showed in my last Haul video.
This lipstick is not for the shy, as it is Bold and dark at the same time, but if you like rockin this look, the soft simple smokey type eyes will add drama to this look that's not too OTT.
