Monthly Favorites - August 2013

Thursday, August 22, 2013 Sara Hassan , 15 Comments

Hi ladies! I have decided to post monthly favorites starting this month. I know that it's a bit early to post (it's not exactly the end of the month) but since I am very occupied with work these days (school stuff like preparing tests and lectures for students) so I thought why not! ^_^

1. Illamasqua Gleam Highlighter in 'Aurora'
My sister and I have been using this highlighter religiously for the past couple of days. It is the most natural-looking highlighter in my stash at the moment. I love how it makes my skin look fresh and glowing.

2. Garnier Skin Naturals BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector Combination to Oily Skin
I've been reaching for it a lot these days. I really like the finish and coverage I get with it.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in 'Transparent' 
It's a life saver! I highly recommend it. The fact that it NEVER appears chalky or powdery on my skin makes me want to buy it for the rest of my life.

4. Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque 
Lately, I've been getting a few pimples here and there. Nothing treats occasional zits better than this product, trust me. It purges pores and controls excess oil on my face which is amazing.

5. Beautyuk Lipstick in 'In The Buff'
It's neither too dull nor too bright – a perfect wearable pink for summer.

What are your picks this month?
