August has been an eventful month for me! Firstly its my birthday month, I got absolutely spoiled, with lots of presents, cake and trip to London to see Jersey Boys at the Piccadilly theatre. Which was an outstanding production and would recommend to anyone that they see it. As part of this trip Tim (my boyfriend) also proposed! Which was took be by complete surprise and was completely magical. I am now the happiest girl on earth (no exaggeration)! Alongside all this excitement I've found a few beauty products which have I been loving throughout the month.
First of is the Lee Stafford treatment for hair that never grows past a certain length. This is the best hair mask I have ever used (to date). It leaves my hair feeling silky, smooth, nourished and manageable. Which is a life saver for my crazy, thick, fizzy, damaged hair. I don't have a problem with my hair not growing so I'm sure if it does what it actually claims, but for nourishment I highly recommend this!
I also picked up the Urban Decay Naked Skin foundation and concealer at the beginning of the month and I have not put them down! The foundation blends like nothing I've used before! The consistency is very thin yet it has a medium but buildable coverage. It has a demi matte finish which looks so natural and flawless on the skin. I have the shade 4 which matches my skin tone perfectly. The concealer is just as brilliant! I like very pale concealers for highlighting under the eyes and this one is just perfect. I have shade one, which is almost white when applied but blends beautifully into the foundation. The coverage of this also good, 3 coats and my hideous dark circles are no more! Under the foundation I've been using the Urban Decay B6 prep spray. This little beauty is packed full of vitamins to boost radiance, reduce redness and pore size. I don't really have large pores so I can't comment on that, however, this does leave my skin super soft and I tell a difference in the feel of my skin when I haven't used this.
For lipstick it has to MACs velvet teddy. I know, I know you've all probably heard this raved about many times before, but this is my perfect brown toned nude and the long lasting formula of MACs matte lipsticks just makes it a winner in my book!
What has everyone else been loving this month?
Until next time...
