Here are my Top 5 Make Up Recommendations for August that you need try!  Get your wishlist ready 😉

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter – ‘Blinded By The Light’

I have been using the Too Faced Love Light Highlighter non stop since I bought it a few months ago.  It has a nice metallic shine that doesn’t give off any shimmers or glitters.  I find that gives my face alot of dimension without looking ‘greasy or oily’ like some others do.  As you can tell by my photos, I have really been getting heaps of use out of it.  This was actually my first review that I ever done on my blog as well.  You can read my first and full review here.  If you choose to only get one, I highly recommend ‘Blinded by the light’.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Blush Trio – ‘Peachy Love’

This is a fairly new purchase of mine from late July.  I love the ABH Blush Trios because you get so much value for your money.  There are 5 different trios to choose from as well.  For $30USD you have 3 beautiful and great quality blushes in your palette and they are also cruelty free!

Smashbox Always on Liquid Lipstick – Shade ‘Drivers Seat’

I received this free mini lipstick in my Level 2 Mecca Beauty Loop Box.  The color is a perfect deep nude shade with a warm pink/red undertone.  I sometimes find brown lipsticks look dull and flat on my face, but the undertone of this lipstick is so flattering.  If you would like to read more about the Mecca Beauty Loop Boxes, you can read my full post here.

Huda Beauty Matte Liquid Lipstick – Shade ‘Gossip Girl’

I have to be honest here, the packaging is what lured me in on this one.  But luckily, the formula and color are just as good!  HUDA’s Matte Liquid Lipstick has great staying power and did not sink in to any fine lines.  I will definitely post swatches and a full review once I get more shades.

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder


Primed and Poreless by Too Faced is currently my holy grail setting powder.  When I apply this, it blurs most pores, fine lines and looks so flawless!  The applicator is a little small, but it works nonetheless.  The pretty packaging is just another bonus!  This can also be used as a primer.

    I’m very interested to try the Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter, though I’m not sure if this shade will work on my skin tone.
