August Favourites

This month I thought I'd combine all my favourites in one post. August hasn't really been a month full of new beauty discoveries.

NYX Blush in Mauve Review

Lately I have been varying the blush I use quite a lot and have discovered a new love for some old favourites. One in particular is the NYX powder blush in mauve which I think is actually now one of my favourite ever blushes. Swatches are listed at the end.

Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Peel and Reveal Revitalizing Face Mask Review

I have to say firstly that I would never have tried this product if I hadn't received samples of the Visible Difference line from GlossyBox. This face mask is amazing! It is definitely this best I have ever tried and this best part is that I received it as a free gift!

GlossyBox August 2012

Initially when I opened this month's box it didn't really excite me as much as last month's did. However, now that I've had a chance to properly check out the products there are a couple that I really like. This month's theme is products from all around the world. I received products from Germany, Japan, Spain and the UK.

Outfit of the Night

OUTFIT: Top - Topshop / Velvet Shorts - River Island / Shoes - New Look / Cross Necklace - Topshop / Black Ring - Accessorize  
MAKE-UP: Face - Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in Ivory / Eyes - Stila Into the Light Eyeshadow palette / Cheeks - 
Mac Mineralise Blush in Dainty / Lips - Revlon Lip Butter in Candy Apple / Nails - OPI Just Spotted the Lizard!

I was invited to an after exam party as in my country we had just sat our exams and results day was coming! Thankfully I was lucky enough to be celebrating great results at the party (yay!) 
For the outfit I had just got my pay so went up to Glasgow to have a spending splurge with my friends.

This outfit was perfect for the really hot weather we had this week and my favourite part was definitely the dark red velvet shorts. I wanted them for ages!

Thanks for reading! We'd love to know what you think of our blog.

Today's Nails: Topshop Blue Monday

Beat the mid-week blues with Topshop Blue Monday! This polish is one of my favourites. I wanted it for ages, mainly for the colour but also a little for the name! The colour is really versatile as I think it could easily be worn all year round, dressed up or dressed down.

The shade is a lovely blue purple and the polish has a great high shine finish. It only takes me two coats the get an opaque finish. When used with the Seche Vite topcoat this polish has great staying power.
I really like the Tophop nail polishes as a range. The polish itself always has a great consistency: not too runny, not too thick. The shade range they sell is already big but is ever growing. Also, as with their make-up range, the packaging is really cute!
The polish retails from £5-6 from and in stores in the UK.
Sadly at the moment the nail polish can only be purchased in the UK but since some of the rest of the make-up range is now being sold in other countries, hopefully the polish will follow soon!

Emma's July Beauty Favourites

This month I've tried to included different products from the previous month. However, I think it's unlikely that something from my previous favourites wont slip onto the list, they are favourites for a reason after all!
