August Favourites 2014

This year has flown by so quickly and now we are in September. Let's just think about that for a second while I snap out of this confused state. August was a month of uni work and that was about it. How exciting!? Other than that, I have been using my makeup stash so much because of uni so I was able to rediscover some beauty products that have made my heart sing this month.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I know I own tooooooo many eyeshadow palettes and although this palette isn't an essential for everyone, I really love it! At first I wasn't keen because of a previous experience of owning a Too Faced Palette {short story = not that great}. But I bought it anyway after the hype died down because the shades are actually so different to what I owned already. The quality is pretty good, PLUS I am LOVING the giant matte cream shadow which is amazing for under the brow. AND IT SMELLS LIKE CHOCOLATE.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Liner
I'm not normally one for pencil liners because I don't know how to use them properly without looking like a distressed panda. I had this eyeliner sitting in my draw waiting to be used so I have and been loving it! It's in "Taupe" which isn't too light like a nude or a white and isn't too dark like a brown or black. It subtly lightens up the eye when placed in the waterline and matches almost every shadow that I have. So far so good!

L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess Mascara
omg! omg. This mascara has easily become one of my all time fave mascaras! Big claim, but it's true! Within the first coat, this mascara gives my lashes instant volume at the roots of my lashes and separates  them {with some work} making them look like little butterfly wings on my eyes!! I also use black eyeliner on the top waterline to give the effect of more lashes too and together they make my lashes look fab!! LOOOVE.

Essie "Play Date"
This shade is definitely the perfect purple! "Play Date" has been one of my favourite polishes ever since I bought it and I still love using it because it just applies so nicely and the formula is just so good!! I love wearing this colour with a gold glitter accent nail!

Revlon Lip Butter in "Sweet Tart"
I have been all about sheer lips for everyday at uni lately and "Sweet Tart" is one of my faves! It's a cool toned almost fuchsia shade which sheers out on the lips not making it look too powerful! Mixed with my fave lip balms and this bad boy is ready to rumble giving my lips a little extra moisture while looking fab-u-lous.

What were your August faves? Should I check anything new out for September?
