August and September Favourites

Not going to lie, writing this bimonthly favourites has been difficult. I wanted to start by listing each product I liked at one particular time during the month. As the weeks progressed however, I found the list too lengthy. I then scrapped the tiny lists, opened my make-up drawer, and critically asked myself which one among the many have I really used and liked. Eventually, I decided that I liked a lot of non-beauty favourites as well, which is why this post is a mix!

Etude House Good Bye Pore Ever Pore Primer Essence

Yes, this again! I use this whenever I use the Jouer Matte Moisture Tint, as it does not apply well over textured skin. I've grown to love it again after not using it for a long time, as it gives both an extra layer of hydration to the skin, plus a bit of a glow that never registers as greasy. I'm running out of this tube, so I need to start looking for a backup!

Too Cool for School Art Class by Rodin Createur du contour & Happy Skin Angled Blush Brush

Yep, still banging on about this. I find that when I have the time, I will always opt for a bit of subtle shading or definition to my poor round face. As fun as the BYS brush was to use, I liked using the TCFS Contour Powder with this blush brush as it gave an even more natural, shadow-like effect to my face. There's a bit of a dent in the powder already, which goes to show just how much I've used and loved it.

Etude House Play 101 Pencil in #50

I was so interested in tightlining in the past few months, but had no proper coloured liner to do it. As soon as I got this pencil however, I found that I have been tightlining non-stop, especially with my new mascara (that you will hear about soon)! Not only does this last all day, but it hardly smudges once dried, and does not irritate my eyes one bit! It's an extra step, but I found that it makes such a difference in making my lashes look fuller.

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Shower Gel

I bring this whenever I sleep over at someone's house or need to take a shower somewhere. It's not only tiny so it fits into most of my bags, but it also smells amazing! I've gotten tons of compliments whenever I use this, and I find that the scent is not too overpowering nor irritating. I am trying to save it as much as I can because this range only comes out during the holiday season!

Momax Power Milk (5 L)

I might be the last person I know to get a power bank, but I finally bit the bullet and bought one, as I have left my phone at home charging too many times. This has been a life saver whenever I need to get home and need to use apps to find the best route (yes, the navigation app is Waze, not that I'm being paid to advertise). It hold 2.5 charges, which is enough by my standards as I am quite thrifty in terms of battery usage. Plus, the design was the cutest among all the other power banks!

That's it from me for now! What about you guys - what were your favourites for August and September?
