August Favourites!

I know I haven't posted in a while, but Ive decided to start this up again and
make a real go of it :)
I thought i'd start with August favourites, since its the strat of September it just feels right!

Okay, so my first favourite of August is Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation. I think I bought this in July, but i've worn it all month and I love it! From experience I didn't think you could get a great foundation on the high street, I usually use Clinique or Estee Lauder (double wear is still my favourite foundation) but after hearing many good things about Bourjois foundations I just had to give one a try and i've got to agree, this is a great high street foundation. My bank balance definitely agrees haha.

Healthy Mix shade 51

My second makup favourite of last month is Estee Lauder's blush in Nude Rose. I got this as part of quite a large set at Christmas but never really used this blush as it just didn't grab my attention, but recently i've been loving natural blush and this matte rose colour is just perfect! It's not the greatest colour in the world, but it's got my approval :)

Swatched heavily (top) and blended.

Next is the lovely Sleek Oh So Special palette, which i've used pretty much continuouly since I got it at the beginning of the month. Neadless to say it's just a staple eyeshadow palette that can be used during the day for neutral looks and at night for more dramatic looks, all for a fantstic price.

Can you guess which ones I use most? Only the most boring :p

I've also been loving Barry M's Dusky Mauve recently, it's just a lovely colour. I prefer darker nail colours in general, but the pink sparkles make it so much much more than a dark plum, love it!

And last but not least is the Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara I got in my Glossy Box, which is a bit of a cheat as ive only had it for about two weeks, but it is just so much better than the Maybelline One By One that I was using before! It doesn't clump, flake or smude and when I remove my makeup at night it actually comes off! Which is not true for the afore mentioned Maybelline one, which would make me look like a panda every morning even though I cleanse twice in the evening and it looked completely removed!

Now for some non-beauty related favourites :D
Firstly, I am in love with my new phone! I got the iPhone 4 in white after mine broke and it's amazing! Im especially surprised by the camera. I didn't think I had any need for an iPhone as i've had an iPad for about 11 months now and it was all I needed, but apparently there is room in my life for both :p
Along side that, I'm also loving the instagram app just because it's fun to play around with. He're some pics I took using instagram

And lastly is my dog Roxy. I watched Marley & Me today and although my pooch is only four years old the film really made me appreciate her so much more! Especially as she is just as lively and mischievous as Marley, haha. Here's some pics I took of  her on our walk last week :)
If anyone is wondering, shes an Irish Terrier whose main aim in life is to get attention and to cause havock!

That's all for tonight :)
See you tomorrow with a haul!
