August makeup favorites

August isn't over yet but I thought I would just give you a peek into what I have been loving this month makeup wise. I have made many trips to Ulta, Sephora, and Target in the past month to find these perfect products that I cannot stop raving about. So here are my August makeup favorites.

First off I would like to talk about this gorgeous Covergirl lipgloss that I found at Target and fell in love with. This is Covergirl's Colorlicious lipgloss in the shade 700 or "Whipped Berry".  This color is such a perfect pink that when you put it on it isn't a neon Barbie pink, it is just the perfect shade. I am a huge lipgloss girl and I can sometimes have problems finding lipgloss that isn't too sticky or too wet and that doesn't break the bank. This lipgloss doesn't do any of those things. It makes my lips feel smooth and moisturized while still being very glossy and it only cost $5.99! I cannot rave about this lipgloss enough so just try it for yourself and tell me what you think.

Next favorite is the Rimmel Wake Me up concealer in the shade Light/fair. This concealer is very brightening and conceals under the eye circles very well without looking too cakey or heavy. It is very light and I got it for a very low cost, I think about $5 which is great. 
Now I have Maybelline's The Rocket mascara in the waterproof formula. I love this mascara because it is waterproof, it make my eyelashes flare and look fuller and it isn't too expensive. (sense a theme here). I am all about saving money especially when it comes to makeup products because I don't want to spend a lot of money on something that may not even look good on me. This only cost $5.99 which is a great price for this quality product. 
Now I am not too sure what looks best when it comes to bold color eyeliner. But since I didn't have any I thought that I would never know unless I tried it so I popped into Ulta and picked up these and fell in love. The eyeliner on the left is the Pixel Pro Eye Liner pencil in the shade 401-02 or"Fabulous" and the eyeliner on the right is NYX Eye/Eyebrow pencil in the shade 910 or "Satin Blue". Both of these liners glide on smoothly and leave a lot of color behind without being too dark or heavy. 
 Last but not least I have this Maybelline New York Dream Pure BB 8-in-1 skin clearing perfector, and I'm not exactly sure which shade but it is one of the lightest ones. This BB cream has very light coverage and goes on very smoothly so if you are the kind of person who likes to cover everything on your face then this is not for you. This BB cream goes on like moisturizer and stays on all day. It does have a bit of a dewy finish but I just like to powder over top since I have slightly more oily skin and I don't want to look greasy. The product description off the Maybelline New york website says,
  • Clears acne
  • Conceals imperfections
  • Minimizes look of pores
  • Reduces appearance of redness
  • Adjusts to skin tone
  • Hydrates and smoothes
  • Enhances and clarifies skin
  • Is oil-free, with a lightweight feel 
I think it does all that while still being in my price range at $7.49.

Those are all of my monthly favorites and if you are also loving some of these products, let me know in the comments or on my social media :)

Love you lots <3
