My August Favorites

I see all my favorite blogs I follow post their Monthly favorite products and they look like so much fun I wanted to do one myself.

This month’s makeup was extremely bare, because seriously what real lifeguard wears makeup to work? I don’t! That being said I went mostly bare this month. Yes I did put makeup on before I went out at night but because I was tired from working everyday I pretty much just did a sweep of eyeshadow color, liner, mascara, face powder and I was out the door. Here are the products I used and what I think about them.

Avon Perfect Wear Eyewriter Liquid Eyeliner. When I did my makeup I just did a sweep of this liner on the top of my lashes. I love this liner! It lasts all day, and even through a little eye misting. It’s not even waterproof! This makeup last for hours! It was such a great investment. The one downside is that like any liquid eyeliner you have to be careful, because you will probably have to start over if you mess up. This eyeliner lasted the hot Philadelphia heat! 

Acne-free severe Acne fighting program. I have sever acne, so this works wonders for me. I still break out, but it’s much more manageable after using this. I have a post coming up with a review on it as to why I love this product even if I break out a little still.

Rimmel bronzer, and matte face powder.  During the summer I just find foundation too heavy during the summer and it melts right off my face. So I just stick with these two to give me almost full coverage and I just coverup my blemishes with a concealer.

Neutrogena Concealer Stick. I have this to cover my acne up and this works great. It blends nicely and stay for a couple hours, but touch ups are needed.

Maybelline Great Lash mascara.  This mascara didn’t work wonders for me, but it did it’s job and it doesn’t smear in the summer. No smearing in the heat is a selling point for me in the summer!

Chapstick in strawberry was all I wore on my lips last month, anything else was just too much with my low maintenance makeup.

Ulta eyeshadow in Love. I seriously didn’t do anything fancy with my eyes this month. All I did was  a sweep of this pretty semi-sheer eyeshadow over my eyes. I bought it on sale while I was at ulta. I would recommend this for everyone to buy to at least have it in your collection as an easy one sweep eye color. I wish I could by another one but Ulta doesn’t sell this color anymore 🙁

Bright Crystal by Versace. I wore this everyday this summer! I absolutely love this scent. It’s fresh, light and clean. It has a light fruity, floral smell that isn’t over powering in the thick heat. It does hang a little heavy if you sweat with this, but it still smells great. Three sprays will carry you through the day but you will need add a spray or two for the night.  I bought the biggest bottle in May and I still have over 80% left in the bottle, I used this everyday. I definitely got my money’s worth with this!

I’m super sorry you guys don’t have any pictures for this post yet, but I left my camera at school when I came home from school for the long weekend. I would have waited but I wanted to do another post. So when I get back to school I’ll post pictures.

So what was your August favorites? Any good recommendation for heat proof eyeliner/mascara? What’s your favorite summer perfume?

    Really great post! It's always interesting seeing what products other people use to deal last in the summer heat! My August favourite was probably Deep Throat blush by NARS. It's nice and shimmery and looks great over bronzer. My favourite summer perfume is Heiress by Paris Hilton – it's really light and fresh!

    For me, I really can put on any liner and then pat on eyeshadow on top and it prevents smuging. Hope that works for you!
