Favourites: August 2011

I just realised I never posted my July favourites, opps! But here we are now in August. It’s been a funny old month, but I have found a lot of new lovelies I have fallen in love with, so enjoy!


1. MAC Freckletone Lipstick

Lately I’ve been reaching for this lipstick all the time as I have been using my Urban Decay or Sleek neutral palettes and it goes perfectly. I also love it because it’s really moisturising and gives a nice finish. I actually got mine years ago with the Emanuel Ungaro collection but it’s also part of the main collection here.


2. Sleek ‘Minx’ Pout Paint

I actually adore these little things, I can’t stop collecting them! This is of course one of Sleek’s new pout paints which is kind of like their version of the infamous OCC Lip Tars to which Sleek’s are a fraction of the price and to be honest, just as good. I was planning to do a review but I thought you may be sick of hearing about them?! Anyway this colour is the perfect dupe for OCC’s 'Hush' and I love mixing it with the other pout paints or just alone. Love it!


3. Lee Stafford Treatment for Hair that ever Grows past a certain Length

Okay so it may be early days yet, as in I’ve only used this for a week and a bit but already I’m noticing a different. I mean, okay so my hair isn’t longer yet, but it’s very soft and maintained in a good shape to allow it to grow…if that makes sense? But don’t be confused thinking it’s a conditioner- it’s something that is used between shampoo and conditioner. If anyone wants me to do a more in depth review, let me know.


4. Good Things Good Things Deep Clean Blackhead Exfoliator 

Like I’ve always said, I really do have nothing but good things to say about Good Things…hahaha, not, sorry! No but in all seriousness I do really love this range and it’s so great to have something in drug stores that isn’t full of nasties. My skin has been a bit wacky lately and this instantly sorted it out. I always thought using an exfoliator on my skin would be too much but this sorts my skin out nicely, and makes my t-zone a lot less oily.


5. New Look Red and Black Bow Shoes

I saw these shoes mentioned on several blogs from the New Look A/W 2011 preview and it was love at first sight! And I know what you’re thinking, ‘what practical shoes!’, and indeed they are…indeed they are ;). If you want some for yourself you can still get them here.


6. LUSH Smitten Hand Cream

This is one of my favourite hand creams and then look what happens…it gets discontinued! Meh! So it’s probably not helpful to you all, but this is still one of my favourites and it really helps with the eczema on my hands. Sadly you can’t buy it in the LUSH shops anymore, but you can get it in Retro here.


7. Sinful Professional Colors ‘Cream Pink’ Nail Polish

I got this shade when I went to Spain and it featured in my latest NOTD here so some of you have seen this one, but I love it so much it made it to my favourites! It reminds me a lot of China Glaze's 'Strawberry Fields' but more neony, for want of a better word!


8. Rabbit Print Scallop Purse

Oh Topshop, how I love you, I really, really do! You all know I have this weird, very strange obsession with rabbits so I had to get this purse! Strangely enough yes, I did try this jumper on but it was so itchy, there’s no way my eczema ridden skin could cope, but yes, it’s adorable! As a substitute I got this purse, and I love it!


9. Topshop ‘Saddle’ Eyeliner

Yes, more Topshop, sorry! This time it’s a huge rave for their kohl eyeliner pencils. I can’t get enough of this brown one, ‘Saddle’ and wear it pretty much every single day with my neutral palettes. It’s even overtaken use by my MAC fluidline, so praise indeed! Definitely go to the website or store and check it out for yourself, but I love it. The swatch on the website is very accurate actually.

04510. Clinique High Impact Mascara

Don’t you just love it when you find a product and love it unexpectendly? Well that’s definitely what happened with this mascara. It’s actually become one of the best I’ve ever tried! It gives my lashes so much volume and coats every single lash. Love it! This is actually a little sample size but I will repurchase for sure. I’m using No.7 Exceptional Curl one at the moment, or something like that and it’s nice, but for me nowhere near as good as this.

So that’s what I’ve been loving in August! Share your favourites with me below :).



  1. Aww, you got the rabbit purse! I ummed and ahhhed over it for ages in Topshop the other week, I put it down though - telling myself I already had a perfectly fine purse!

  2. I have been umming & arring over those shoes for a while now. I just bought another pair of shoes..but they're SO lovely!

  3. I always love these posts. I have the same Clinique mascara and I find it really good!

  4. i use the lee stafford hair growth treatment and i love it! x
