August Favourites

This by far has to be the shortest amount of favourites I've had and I also find it a little ironic that it's filled with American products.

Real Techniques Buffing Brush
The Buffing Brush is a part of the Core Collection which can be purchased from both the USA and the UK. I decided to buy it in America as it'd be cheaper ($18 which works out to be £11.33 rather than £21 from Boots) I've found myself using this to apply foundation and it buffs it in so well. If you don't already have this, then you better invest in it! As I'm sure that I speak for most people when I say that I cannot live without it.

Organix Macadamia Oil
Once again, this can be bought in both countries but it worked out so much cheaper in the US. I'm not sure what had attracted me to this but I do know that my hair loves it. I apply this to my hair when it's wet and I simply warm it up by rubbing my hands together and then running my fingers through my hair. It makes my hair feel silky smooth and it some how dries my hair faster.

Essie Nail Varnish in Cute As A Button
This has to be my most worn nail polish throughout August. It's a orangey pink with slight red undertones that is just so perfect for summer. I think this is the old version of it as I bought it from America but despite that, I love it to pieces.

Owl Ring
I had purchased this from Claire's and it cost me a whooping $9 but I've been wearing it so much since I've bought it that I've justified it. It's simple yet has a lot of detail to it that just draws in peoples attention. I've had so many compliments on this ring.

eos Lip Balm in Summerfruits
This is literally the first beauty product that I picked up in America and I've been wearing it every day. I've reviewed this in more detail here

What have you been loving throughout August?


  1. I love the little owl head on that nail polish. Gorgeous colour too! x

  2. Love the colour of that Essie polish! I can't believe I forgot to add the Organix and EOS to my favourites!!!! xo

    1. You can always add them onto September's favourites ;) xo

  3. I really want that Essie Polish, it is next on my list (; I also really want to try the Buffing brush too! Great favourites, i always choose too many!

  5. I love that polish too! Also just ordered some Real Technique brushes - can't wait to try them :)

    Great favourites!


  6. I think its rubbish how Real Techniques brushes are so much cheaper in America :(

    1. It's because they're made in America and the UK has to import them over which makes the price tag £21 for the Collections xo

  7. The owl ring is so pretty!
    And I really wanna try the RealTecniques! :) xx

    1. It sure is! You should definitely try some of their brushes, especially the Core Collection! :) xo

  8. At first glance I thought the owl ring was a new design for the lids of essie nail polish haha!

    I want to go back to America and be able to buy beauty products for much cheaper :( I really want to try real techniques brushes.

    I'm a new follower, you have a lovely blog!
