August Favourites

Well hasn’t this month literally flown by. It’s gone ridiculously quick, I’m in shock that it’s ended this quickly. 

August marked a special occasion for me. The day I decided money means nothing to me, and instead I will simply spend my money on anything and everything. At least that’s what it has felt like. I have spent a lot of money this month, but I bought a lot of basics that I had been after for ages so I’m actually really happy. Not so happy about my bank balance, but in the immortal words of twelvies everywhere; YOLO.

The Leather Jacket: Cotton On Freya Biker Jacket. I think I’ve worn this every day since I bought it. It’s from Cotton On and retails for $69.95. You can find it here.

The Handbag: Zara Handbag. This beauty is from Zara and I am in big big love with this baby. I was looking for the Zara Mini Office City that Alix from ICovetThee had and this was the closest I could find. It’s perfect for me. Small enough that is doesn’t weigh a tonne and big enough to fit in everything I need and more. It retails for $99 at Zara in store.

The Lipstick: MAC Satin Lipstick in Brave. This has been my staple for the month. There’s been a lot of hype about their colour ‘Velvet Teddy’ in the last month, but it just looked too brown for my skin tone. However I picked this one up and bam. Instant love. This is my first nude lipstick that I’ve bought and I’m a huge fan of it. It retails for $36 and you can find it here.

The Palette: Tarte Rainforest After Dark Coloured Clay Eye and Cheek Palette. I am not exaggerating when I say this. This may be my favourite palette of all time. I will do an in-depth post on this beauty because I just need to write about it like crazy. For Australian ladies you can order it from here.   

The BB Cream:  Lioele Triple The Solution BB Cream. This stuff is incredible. It makes your skin look perfect without looking cakey. I ordered this off Cutie & Beautie here.

The Liner: Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner. A late runner to the month seeing as I bought this two days ago, but it’s already my favourite liquid liner of all time. A friend had been telling me for so long to grab this, and with the recent drop of MECCA Cosmetica’s prices I couldn’t say no any longer. You can pick it up in store for $26 or online here.


And that’s it! What has been your favourites this month? Let me know in the comments!
