August Favorites

Summer is almost over and I couldn’t be happier.  I’m more of an indoor girl that’s always hot!  Fall cannot get here fast enough.  And because August is coming to an end, I thought I would share some of my favorites of this month.

This BB Cream is my absolute holy grail, ride or die complexion product!  It’s super hard for me to find a drug store tinted moisturizer of BB Cream that’s brown-girl friendly.  So when i stumbled across this gem at CVS, I was thrilled.

Although it’s a BB Cream, it really does have to coverage of a medium coverage foundation.   I like to apply it with my elf foundation brush which gives me the most beautiful finish.  And at $4.99 it really can’t be beat!

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara in Blackest Black $7.49

I talked about this mascara in my no makeup, makeup post.  This stuff is amazing.  it gives me thick, fluffy lashes like I like!  Is it a dupe for Too Faced Better Than Sex??  Don’t know.  Too expensive.  Wont be finding out!  I love that the L’Oreal mascara is affordable enough to replace every few months like we are supposed to.

Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer Dulce de Leche #15 $14.00

Try saying that 5 times fast!  I purchased this on the recommendation from the awesome people of my favorite sub reddit group r/MakeupAddiction.  I made a post asking for recommendations for mid priced concealers because drug store brands still don’t make shades dark enough for me.  They recommended this concealer so I ordered it!

I love this concealer!  It covers my dark circles without looking cakey or settling into fine lines.  It feels super light on the skin and the color is perfect for covering my dark circles.
