August Favorites ~ Makeup, Skincare, Haircare Etc

The votes were in, and most of you like Monthly Favorites blog posts. High Five! I like them too! :)

I just wrote August in the title, when in fact I've been using some of these products long before August.


  1. Spring It! Hair Removing Spring Thing ~ I can't live without this anymore! I use it mainly to remove hair from my upper lip, which I have to do often coz I click a lot of lip photos over here. On camera, even a leetle bit of hair look offensive (shown here). Basically, you hold both ends down into a U-shape, roll the spring on your skin, and straighten it to pull out the hair. Quick & painless- once you get used to it :))
  2. Clearasil Acne Clearing Scrub ~ This makes my face feel really smooth. The scrub isn't so big and abrasive, so it wouldn't hurt a ripe pimple. I leave it on as a mask too sometimes. However, it doesn't prevent pimples, coz I have a pimple right now when I'd just used it 2-3 days ago. But in it's defense, I'm getting pimples on and off lately. 
  3. Herbal essences None Of Your Frizziness Serum ~ With anti-humidity technology, it says. I love that it smells like mangoes. Slice, to be precise. It does help tame the frizziness I get right after washing.
  4. Etude House Missing U Hand Cream 'Panda Story'~ I LOVE this panda so much! I should have bought all of them! This one smells peachy and it does not make my hand feel slippery. I'm so afraid to use it coz I don't want it to be finished! (also shown here). Must collect more next time!
  5. Olay 7-in-1 Total Effects Anti-Ageing Eye Cream ~ I'm liking this a lot. It has tiny gold flecks in it, which are unnoticeable when applied. It's not very greasy/oily. The outer corners of my eyes used to be dry-ish and this has moisturized them to normalcy. Fine lines have also noticeably reduced. You can mix this with your concealer, and you've got yourself a YSL Touche Eclat dupe...ish, I think =D
  6. MAC Quite Cute Mineralize Blush Giggly ~ Favorite pink blush of the moment (swatches here). It looks so good especially at night under yellow light. I think it could be my favorite pink blush of all time.
  7. Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation #53 ~ This is almost exactly like the original Healthy Mix Foundation, except it is thinner (more liquid-ey) and less oily. It is easier to blend than the original too. Yes, I do like it better than the original. It smells so fruity & fresh, I could eat it. Coverage- Light to Medium. 
Swatches.....

Healthy Mix Foundation, Olay Eye Cream, Clearasil Scrub, Herbal Essences Serum

Olay Total Effects Eye Cream ~ Doesn't it look yum?!

Etude House Missing U Hand Cream

Other things I'm loving:
  • Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Pomegranate ~ My hubby sniffs & says "I smell jam, I smell jam!" whenever I use it haha. I'd click a photo of it, but it's finished. I'm going to get more jam soon! =D
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette ~ Review & swatches to come, but I'll tell you now, I LOVE IT!  Photos here
  • My Lipstick Sundae ~ I use it almost everyday! Will surely make more. Shown here
  • Makeup Storage Drawers ~ I can't sleep so well, coz I want more of them, like, right now! Shown here
  • Weeds Season 7 ~ Not a pothead, but I love this show! :)
  • New cupboard & couch ~ I'll maybe post pics of those sometime. My dressing room is kind of a mess right now. Planning to get a new vanity, wallpaper, and a shoe rack made. So much work needed!

What are your favorite products right now?

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
