Summer favorites

Hey guys! 
I know it’s pretty late to be posting an August favorites, so instead of calling this post my August favorites, I’m calling it my summer favorites! 
I had an amazing summer and fortunately, I tried so many products that have become staples in the life!
My first favorite is something I did an in-depth review on. The Farmacy face mask is something I have fallen in love with. I posted a video of my first impression of the mask a few weeks ago and I have been using it every since. The mask has helped reduce the breakouts on my face, as well as moisturize. I find that the mask isn’t too much for my super oily nose, but at the same time it works wonders with my dry chin. If you want to see how this mask preformed, click here!!!!!

My next favorite is the glam glow brightening mask. I know these masks are a very big investment, but I’m on my second jar and I’m obsessed. I find that if I use this mask every other day (and I use the farmacy on days I don't use this mask) my skin is much clearer, brighter, and softer. One thing to note about the mask is the results only last with consistent use (at least 2x a week) and when using sunscreen! Other than that, I find that this mask is incredible and I can’t wait for glamglow to come out with other products! 

My next favorite is the MUFE aqua liquid liner in number 8. This liner is a BEAUTIFUL purple liner with some shimmer in it. At first I was not a fan of the brush, but as I started playing around with the product I found that it was actually easier than normal for my to create a smooth wing. I love the formula because it takes a lot of work to get this liner off (believe me, thats a good thing). If you want to see this liner in action, I just posted an eye look on instagram using it!

All summer I have been obsessed with the original Hourglass ambient lighting palette. I know they have come out with other ones, but I got this palette 2 years ago and its still going strong. I love using dim light to dust off any bake and incandescent light as a highlighter for the tops of my cheek bones. The powders are seriously unlike any others I have ever tried and although they are pricey, I think they are worth the splurge. 


Another favorite of mine has been the buxom lip cream in rose julep. This is the MOST BEAUTIFUL everyday lip gloss. I absolutely love the slightly plumping and tingling formula and the color is so universal and perfect for everyday use. These glosses are my favorite, and I'm so happy I found this color to add to my collection.

My last favorite I am going to share is my succulent plant. I have been in love with these and whenever I'm upset I always look at the one I keep on my desk. I find that keeping greenery in my room and house calms and centers myself and just overall makes me a happier person! 

Those were all my favorites for this summer! I hope your September is off to a great start and I'll see you in my next post! 

Thank you for reading <3

XOXO,
Shadow
