Monthly Favourites: August 2015 Favourites.

It has been a long long time since I did a favourites post. However I have as bunch of things that I have been really loving a lot and wanted to share them with you.

Category: Skincare

As you know I was sent a bunch of products by Shudhvi naturals for review. I have been using a bunch of them and I have already reviewed the handmade soaps. But more than the handmade soaps, I have loved their Sun Jeevani- an After Bath Beauty Oil. I have combination skin that is more oily in the summer and is confused in the monsoon season. This oil has really settled the confusion and kept my skin super happy. I have been using this for a month and I haven't touched a moisturiser at all. You can expect a super in detailed review very soon.

Category: Eye makeup

As always I have had a bunch of weddings and functions to attend and not a lot of time to get ready for it. The MAC paintpot in Indianwood is a superb product for those times when you are in a hurry and want a bit of glamour. Add a dark brown eyeshadow in the crease, a winged eye liner and mascara. That's all you need.

Speaking of dark brown eyeshadow, my favourite one to use is from the Faces Eye Shadow trio in Chocolate. Actually not just the dark brown, there is a lovely highlighter colour that I love using on the inner corners, under the brows, and cheeks bones. Sometimes I use just this light colour on the centre of my eyelids to make them look brighter.

For that perfect winged liner I have been using the Maybelline Colossal Liner for quite a while now. I have a really detailed review on it up already. Totally worth buying.

The eye makeup is not complete without the eyebrows being done. The Rimmel Brow This Way is something that I picked up when I was in Abu Dhabi. It isn't as fast to use as the Benefit Gimme Brow. However it does a really good job. I love how it makes my brows look on fleek.

For an every day look the NYX eyeshadow in True Taupe is the eye shadow that I reach for. It doesn't really show very well but it is great for just a matte finish look and it works really well for blending out the other shadows.

While I love using foundation, for an every day basis I don't have the time to apply foundation so concealer it is. I have MAC Studio Finish in NW 35. I use it for my under eyes and occasionally for small blemishes.

Category: Lips

For every day I use Maybelline Colorshow  _______, fill in the blank, people. I know you all know that I use Chocolatte. Oops!! Did I just give away the answer??

For functions and weddings I have been loving the L'Oreal Star Reds collection in Pure Rouge. Oh man! What a colour. What a finish. What a lipstick. Wow! That is all I will say for now. I mean come on, doesn't that expression say it all.

So this is what I have been loving this month. Tell me what you have loved through all of August.
