August Favorites

Here is a quick round up of a few things I love this month! August was a good lipstick month for me; I mentioned in another post that I’ve been into nudes and MYBB so I have 3 to share with you today along with a few other goodies.

  1. NARS Larger Than Life Long Wear Eye Liner in Via Veneto. I discovered this one in the Sephora VIB Rouge birthday gift and I’ve been using it ever since. The gift size has lasted me over 4 months now and it seems like I still have a decent amount left. I think this is the best kohl liner I’ve found to date. I mainly use this for my upper waterline. I find it to be creamy, easy to apply, and lasts all day on me without smudging. I wouldn’t mind checking out other nude color in this.
  2. YSL Rouge Pur Couture in Beige Tribute. At first I was only able to find this at Holt Renfrew & Hudson’s Bay, but it looks like Sephora carries this color now. This is a perfect nude for those with fair to medium (maybe light-medium) skin – for reference my skin is probably an NC 15-20. I personally like nude lipsticks paired with a dark smoky eye. I think for everyday use, it might look too washed out.
  3. Clinique Pop Lip Color in Beige Pop. To me this color is actually quite close to YSL’s Beige Tribute, it’s about 0.5 to 1 point darker and slightly more pink. This is very comfortable on my lips and I like how it doesn’t have a scent to it. If you’re interested in Beige Tribute and don’t want to pay the $39 price tag, I recommend giving this a go. It retails for $21 CAD, available at Sephora, Holt Renfrew, Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, and Sears.
  4. Burberry Kisses Lipstick in English Rose. This is hands down my favorite. If you’re looking for an opaque lipstick, then this isn’t for you. YSL & Clinique both have an opaque formula, whereas Burberry has a buildable coverage. I love how comfortable this is on the lips and how natural it looks. It just looks like I have naturally plush, rose-tone lips.
  5. Ban.do Agenda. This is my favorite planner to date. I’ve been a die-hard moleskine fan for years but this cute design just won me over. If you’re in the market for a new planner, you need to check this one out – you won’t be disappointed, you’ll find stickers, tabs, cute monthly graphic designs and more.
