August favorites

It's the end of another month and that means sharing our montly favorites! Here is a list of the things I've been loving this month, I would love to hear your favorites!



The body shop Love Africa scrub
I've been using this once a week since I got it now and it helps my skin feel smoother and less drying. And my tan has become quite even and didn't flake off instantly, and that is always a plus.



Olive green tee
I have been wearing this t-shirt all over august. We haven't had good weather in Trondheim this summer, but suddenly it hit us and we're at 27 Celsius now, so wearing anything but t-shirts and shorts is unbearable. I love how this shirt is so soft that I feel like I'm wearing PJ's!



ELF Cosmetics bronzer and blusher duo
Along with the nice weather I've been wanting to look more toasted as well, and this duo transitions beautifully so we can all fake being a glowing goddess.

Bdellium tools small stipple brush
This little thing is very handy to build up your concealer without using your hands or blending it out too much. I've also used it to to create a realistic skin effect by stippling multiple layers of alcohol activated makeup.



Kiss xocosmetics lip balm "see through rouge"
I am dependent on lip balm and in periods where the weather is super dry I can't wear lipstick either, so to switch up to this is pretty amazing. We all look a bit more put together when we're wearing lipstick. The formula is pretty opaque and gives a proper red lip as well as working as a lip balm, which is very unusual for a lip balm.

    1. Yes, it super convenient and very pretty, it's actually quite fun because I only picked it up since I'd used up my lip balm! After seeing the results, I really want to stock up on some other colors after Christmas!

    1. It's actually a lipbalm, which is crazy considering how pigmented it is!

  8. Looks like a great round up of prodcuts for August. Interested to try out that body scrub and that elf duo really fooled me. When I first saw the picture, I thought it was a NARS duo. Also see you use the real techniques brushes? How do you find them?

    1. Yeah, it's very similar! I actually found mine in my local H&M, they carry real techniques in Norway :) I absolutely adore my real technique brushes and they are some of the best I've ever tried!
