My 5 All Time Favourites For August 2010

Another month has passed and time really flies, doesn’t it? We are stepping into the last phase of year 2010. So, here are my 5 All Time Favourites For August.

First, we have Dior Serum de Rouge Lipsticks. I am totally in love with them and I am a proud owner of three at the moment. The texture is extra creamy, it glides onto my lips effortlessly. Formula is light and glossy but when it comes to its staying power, I must say it’s not extremely long-wearing.

Shu Uemura Glow On Blush in P Pink 34 is such a pretty colour. It’s very easy to blend and it stays on throughout the night. Normally, blush is the first thing that wears off (apart from lips) and needs touching up. I don’t have to touch up at all while using this blush. P Pink 34 is a very natural pink for me, it brightens up my complexion with glowing cheeks.

I always have a bad impression of using cream foundations, especially in this hot and humid weather. But no, Bobbi Brown Oil-Free Even Finish Compact Foundation works wonders for me. I have oily T-zone,  blotting and touching up throughout the day is normal. I like to look fresh and shine-free most of the time. Not only does this foundation provide an even coverage, it is super easy to use and blend. I set it with either Make Up For Ever HD Powder or Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder.

Wake up tired eyes!! Lack of sleep is very common these days with iPhone, TV and the internet. Most of the mornings, my eyes look extremely tired. Ooh La Lift by Benefit combats puffiness and lighten dark circles under the eyes for me with a little lifting effect. It contains light-reflecting particles which makes my eyes look brighter and more awake.

Have you been mangoed? I feel like I have when I use You’ve Been Mangoed by LUSH. I love eating the fruit, drinking the juice and I really enjoy having a bath filled with mangoes.

What are your favourite items this month?

  1. I used to love BB Even Finish compact foundation, but I had moved on to BB Natural Finish Long lasting, even finish is compact & convenient for travel though.

    • I am just too into buying foundations..
      I use different foundations almost everyday depending of my skin type for the day =)
      By doing so, I can get through my foundations a little faster too..
      AND buy new ones..

    • Yes, right?
      The perfect reason to shop..
      “I just ran out of xxx, I need to replenish them..”
      Me too, I can’t stop buying thus my collection grows..
      And everytime I try something new, I fell in love with them..
      It’s a vicious cycle!!
