August 2013 Beauty Favorites

Beautysets - August 2013 Beauty Favorites by IcingOnTheFace

1. Dr. Jart + Premium Beauty Balm

I've been loving this for almost every day! I can't logically choose a foundation anymore when I know this will actually do something for my skin while giving some coverage. Make sure you check out my Dr. Jart+ Premium BB Cream Review!!!

2. Essie Sunday Funday

I just got this color more recently and have been loving it! Such a pretty pink with the tiniest touch of micro shimmer. Currently, I have Essie As Gold As It Gets (gold metallic flecks) layered over it; fun fun fun.

3. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder

This powder is so finely milled that it doesn't look like powder at all - it just makes your skin look so smooth and non-shiney. It goes perfectly over the top of the Dr. Jart+ BB Cream. I will say that I don't think this powder does much for controlling oil; I can be a little oily in just a couple hours.

4. Essie The More The Merrier

This has been the perfect "one last hurrah" for summer shades before all the fall colors start coming out. It's a bright pop of light green but it isn't too crazy. Very pretty!

5. Clinique All About Eyes Eye Cream 

I rediscovered this product earlier in the year, and then had to rediscover it all over again this month because it is so amazing. I tell you all about it in my Clinique All About Eyes Review

6. E.l.f. Small Angled Brush

I've always liked filling in my brows a little bit - but I've been absolutely obsessed with brows this month! This brush is the best and most affordable eyebrow brush there is! $3 for a very small and very precise angled "eyeliner" brush. I like the look of using powder to fill in my brows, but always found pencils to be easier; but this brush is the one! It makes it so quick and easy to get a defined brow that isn't overdone.

7. Maybelline EyeStudio Eyeshadow in Amethyst Ablazed

I've been loving keeping this on hand for a little pop of purple. I've been either using the lightest purple for a lid color with brown in the crease or I've been taking the lightest and mixing it with the pretty deep purple (below the silver in the palette) for definition on my lower lash line to contrast a neutral eye look on top. LOVE doing that; makes brown eyes look so rich and vibrant.

8. NARS Blush in Deep Throat

While last month I was thrilled about my Nyx Summer Peach blush, this month I've been crazy about NARS Deep Throat. It's the same pretty pink but slightly coral color, but this one is less in-your-face-pink; more neutral, natural, and glowy. NARS blushes are pigmented, smooth, and creamy.


Hope you guy's are all geared up for September whether you're going back to school, back to work, or just looking forward to getting closer to fall!
Let me know if you like this kind of magazine-like picture for my favorites or if you prefer the way I've done them in the past (all photographed together).
