August Holiday Favourites 2015


I am BACK!!!

August couldn't have ended in a better way. There I was sitting by the pool, enjoying the Cypriot heat only 2 days ago. But back to normal life now, it feels amazing to be home (even though it’s really cold outside) and it feels even better to be able to update my very much loved blog space. Speaking of my blog, thank you everyone for entering my First Giveaway (if you haven’t yet entered, check it out here, open internationally and until midnight). I am really excited and looking forward to announcing the lucky winner!

Now, going back to the norm, I couldn't start September if not with a “favourites” post. Admittedly, I wore a lot less make-up during my holiday, mostly because the heat was not at all forgiving, but when I did these were the products I kept reaching for. 


MAC Mineralize Blush (shade “Gentle”) | £22
Its mineral formula is so refined that it provides a sheer and lightweight coverage. Colour can be built up, but it does so lightly without looking too heavy. Whenever I wanted a pop of colour to my cheekbones, this is the blush I swept across my cheekbones for that healthy and natural glow. 

Urban Decay All Nighter Make-Up Setting Spray | £9
Simply put, the best setting spray I have come across. It keeps my make-up fresh looking all day long and under the blazing sun it held things in place extremely well. Many have raved about this product and rightfully so! If you haven’t yet tried it, I honestly suggest you to do so, you will love it!

MAC Lipstick (shade “Candy Yum –Yum”) | £15
Entering giveaways is always fun but it becomes even better when you actually win something! I was lucky enough to win this beautiful shade, courtesy of Chloebee, and it has simply defined summer for me. Being a vibrant, hot and bright shade of pink with blue undertones, whenever worn it became show-stopping and was bound to get some attention. It has a matte finish, not too hydrating but not at all drying and lasting power was around 6 to 8 hours which is pretty decent. In love with this shade and even though it will not be worn much come autumn and winter, it is quickly becoming my favourite MAC lipstick.

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara (shade “Medium Brown”) | £4.99
When I had no time for pencilling in my eyebrows, this was the perfect brow tamer. It sculpts my brows without it being too heavy or obvious and yields a more natural look. The formula leaves no streak or clumps and it kept my brows in place all day long. Amazing price tag for what you get if you ask me.

L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer (shade “Porcelain”) | £4.99
Once again, a product everyone has read about but I couldn't not include it in this list. Being on holiday meant late nights and early mornings and this is where this little saviour came in. It covered my darker than usual circles extremely well and proved to be crease resistant, exactly what it claims to do. The price tag does not do it any justice because it really is amazing, and I love that this brand is also cruelty free. Will repurchase without thinking twice and cannot wait to get my hands on the yellow version of this for ultimate coverage.

L to R: Concealer, Blush, Lipstick
Have you tried any of these? Let me know below!
Thank you for reading beauties and thank you for sticking around whilst I was away! Things will be going back to normal and I cannot wait to share a few holiday photos with you all.

xoxo

  17. Hope you had an amazing vacation. The products look absolutely amazing.
    I've been a fan of the Maybelline Brow Drama and the MAC Blush for a while now, they do their job so well! I've been trying to find the UD Makeup Setter of late, since I've heard so many great things about it that I can't wait to try it. It was great knowing that you love it, which gives me reason to buy it more haha!

    Much love xo

  62. The UD Setting Spray is such a life saver, I use it every time I wear makeup and it just lasts forever. Before, my foundation would always sweat off! Sounds like you had a gorgeous holiday but I know what you mean, sometimes it's nice to get back into a routine so you can resume normal life!
