August Favourites

I had a good August- Uni kicked off to a fast pace and I cannot believe how quickly this year is flying by. This month's favourites is lacking in the makeup because I shared my everyday makeup routine and I'd prefer not to repeat the products in this post.

Everyday Makeup Routine

I mostly stick to the same old products but I love reading everyday makeup routine blog posts because I'm nosy and like seeing what other girls use. I'm normally super lazy because there's no pressure to dress to impress at my University (even in winter the guys rock up in boardies and Havaianas carrying a single exercise book) but lately I felt like putting in some effort so I'm putting on some of the slap that I've spent the better part of 18 months hoarding. I haven't posted about my everyday makeup per se, but I'm using a couple of new products so I thought I'd share.

Wispy Pink

The sheer lipstick has become a handbag staple and Maybelline's solution to the Revlon Lip Butter, CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine and L'Oreal Rouge Caresse is the Maybelline Color Whisper lipstick. I've resisted Maybelline's lipsticks until now, but in Priceline's 50% Maybelline sale I allowed myself one, and I settled on Lust for Blush

Juliet and Apostle

My experience with Antipodes has been good. Bearing in mind that not all natural skincare is good skincare, I like the New Zealand brand's organic approach to skincare science and their very green aesthetic. Each product draws on various plant and fruit extracts for their beneficial properties. The brand ethos is reminiscent of Aesop, but more whimsical and with more emphasis on organic ingredients. I've used a hefty amount of both of these products and it's high time I posted about how good they are.

Tedium and Shopping

It felt strange to take a little break from blogging- so I thought I'd share a personal, even if I'm not feeling in the swing of things to blog about makeup. I'm unsure of whether I should pick a side- personal blogging is fun but somewhat unprofessional on a beauty blog. What do you guys think? This is more of a photo and caption update than a legitimate post, just comprised of snapshots of what's been going on. In between the first three weeks' worth of lectures, tutorials and pracs, I've been reading, spending my meager earnings and herding teenagers around Rocks Riverside Park.

Baby bottle of Moroccanoil, Essence cheap-n-cheerfuls 'Cappucino Please!' and 'That's What I Mint!'

Cocktail Coral

I'll bet Clinique didn't anticipate the veritable wave of jumbo lip crayons that would ensue their famous Chubby Stick. The latest brand to hop onto the bandwagon is Bourjois, whose Colour Boost lipsticks have just hit Aussie shelves.
