August Favourites 2012

Goodness me, I can't believe August is over already. Seriously, can someone please tell me where that month went.. I go back to school on the 5th September so wish me luck guys!!


Overview:


iPad
So, yes, I got an iPad. I actually only got it on 29th August so I've only had it a few days. But yes, I consider it a favourite :)
I got the white 'New iPad' (or iPad 3). 

Michael Kors Crossbody Bag
I have literally only been using this bag this month. I also have this bag in pink but my black one has been used much more this month. This is quite a small bag but I find that it holds all my absolute essentials and then I'm good to go. Also, since I have been using this over a bigger bag, my back and shoulder have not been aching. Bonus! If you'd like to see a 'What's In My Bag' with this bag then leave a comment below :)

Kleenex Blotting Paper
I am in love with these things. There will be a full review coming very soon so I won't give much away. Basically, they are a necessity for people with oily skin, like me! I picked up 2 more packs of these in my recent haul post.

Miss Dior Cherie L'eau
This has been my most worn perfume of the month. I usually don't like citrusy scents but this one is simply amazing. I am so upset that they discontinued this fragrance. I will have to try the original Miss Dior Cherie when this one runs out! Also, how adorable is the bottle, it is by far my favourite out of the perfumes I own.

Maybelline 'One by One' Mascara
At first, I wasn't too keen on this mascara, I thought it was really drying out my lashes which meant it was a pain to remove. However, after giving this another go, and using my MAC Cleanse Off Oil (which is an awesome makeup remover) I had no problem with it. It separates my lashes so well and it honestly makes them look the longest they have ever looked!

The brush allows you to coat every single lash in mascara. It is a really good drugstore mascara!

Sigma F80 Brush & Real Techniques Powder Brush
I use the Sigma F80 brush to apply my foundation. I don't know why, but I really don't like applying foundation with my fingers. This brush is very densely packed and it buffs foundation in like a dream. I could not be without this brush. 

The real techniques powder brush has replaced my love for the Sigma (F20) Large Powder Brush. I do still use my sigma powder brush but I find that the real techniques brush just does a slightly better job. I still love Sigma brushes don't get me wrong.. I was thinking of doing a Makeup Brush Collection post if you guys would be interested??

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
I don't really know what to say about this powder. It is awesome. That's all. :)

La Roche-Posay 'Effaclar Duo'
Another favourite of the month would have to be Effaclar Duo. Since I started using it I have noticed a big difference in the overall texture of my skin. I also think my acne scarring has faded slightly since using this. I like it so much that I picked up two other products from the Effaclar line which you can see in my recent haul

Favourite song of the month:
Taylor Swift - We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Favourite TV Show of the month:

Pretty Little Liars. I am in love with this show!


Hope you enjoyed seeing all my favourites of the month of August!
