August 2012 Beauty Favourites

It only seems like yesterday that I was doing my July favourites, where on earth is the time going? before we know it Christmas will be here, in fact I even saw mince pies in the supermarket the other day lol. Anywho I'm not here to talk about ridiculously early food items, I'm here to show you my August favourites, so lets get started:

Jemma Kidd Light As Air Foundation:
This is pretty much the only foundation I've used this month, it really does live up to the hype and I love how light it is on the skin.

Caudalie Cleansing Water:
Ever since I tried the Caudalie Beauty Elixir I've been fascinated by the brand and decided to try something else. I've been using this cleansing water to remove my make up, and I really like it, especially the scent which I know a lot of people don't like, it's definitely like Marmite lol.

Ren Invisible Pores Detox Mask:
Whenever my skin starts playing up and those pesky spots appear, I always turn to this mask to help me out. It helps dry them up in no time, plus it helps minimize pores. Another thing I really like about this product is the packaging, it makes it really easy to tell how much product you have left, plus a pump is always a winner.

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Smoothing Resurfacing Primer:
I literally bought this primer eons ago and I don't think I ever used it, I know that's shameful, but since my Laura Mercier one is low on the ground I really needed to find another one that's a little cheaper. I actually really like this one, it makes your skin so smooth, prefect for foundation application. I definitely recommend this primer if you're after a cheaper alternative to the Laura Mercier one.

Ojon Volume Advance Volumising Styling Spray:
I've been trying to find the perfect volumising product for quite a while and this one is definitely a winner in my book. It's a fun combination of spray and mousse, you spray it on your hair and then it expands into a mousse. It creates lots of volume and really feels luxurious. I love it.

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Stain in Rendezvous:
I'm obsessed with this stain, it's just such a lovely colour that you can apply sparingly, for a wash of colour, or you can layer it on for a more intense look. If you fancy seeing it on the lips, here is the link to my post.

I would love to know what you've been loving this month and your thoughts on the products I've mentioned?

XOXO Claire
