Beauty - August Favourites

August favourites from Vera wang Urban decay and benifit

Hey lovelies,
Its that time again, yet another month has flown past at lightening speed, and Summer has actually been doing its thing this month and been ,well Sunny, and this has been reflected in my beauty choices.

First up is my new love the Urban Decay Naked palette, I actually dunno why I never bought this before, It is amazing the shades are stunning, the pigmentation great and staying power amazing, I am in Love and have used this everyday since I bought it, mainly using naked and buck and half baked for a pretty summery everyday eye look. I can't wait to see what other looks I can create with this palette.

Also from Urban Decay I have a new fav lippie, in the form of Backtalk a gorgeous pinky mauve shade in the Vice comfort matte formula, I am currently loving the Vice lipsticks I have a couple and I love them. You can read my full review with swatches here.

Sticking with Urban Decay,( I'm falling in love with them ) the all nighter setting spray has been an essential in the warm weather so cooling and refreshing and sets my makeup too so double bubble. It's also on offer on feel unique as I type this so check it out if you like the sound of it.

Another new addition has come from Benefit, the sample size of Dew the hoola I got free with Elle magazine has become a staple in my everyday makeup these last couple of weeks. I already love Hoola so new I would love Dew the Hoola its a great wearable bronzer that blends out beautifully giving a really natural glow.

Last up is something I have had since last Summer Vera Wang hippie princess, its a perfect Summer scent with hints of exotic fruits and vanilla but with a hint of floral too. I love Vera Wang perfumes and this one is my favourite for Summer. 

What's been your favourite beauty item this month ? 


  1. I love the naked palette as well and naked and buck are probably my most used shades from the palette, as you said both are perfect for every day and I do tend to favour the mattes actually!

  2. Love how you take your photos, firstly ☺️. Vera Wang prefumes are really where it's at - agreed !
