August Beauty Favorites

L-R: Tarte Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush (Natural Beauty), Bloom lipstick (Cranberry),
Natura Ekos Maracajua (lotion & EDT), Beyonce Pulse Summer perfume,
Earth Science Chamomile & Green Tea Eye Makeup Remover,
Rachel Roy Shadow Collection

Geez! August went by so fast. Too busy to even care ha? Anyways, here are my most used-slash-worn beauty products this month.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Long Wear Blush in Natural Beauty is a loud pink matte blush that’s richly pigmented. My trick is to apply it light-handedly with a blush brush for a more subdued finish. It’s indeed long-wearing, definitely an A+ for a grease ball face like mine.

This lipstick from Bloom Cosmetics reminds me of MAC, what with its vanilla-infused scent.  I was surprised to see it on sale for only $5 at Sears! This normally retails for $20 at so if you’re near Sears, I say buy one or more. I got moi two.

in Cranberry

I have recently reviewed this lotion and eau de toilette combo from Natura EKOS Maracuja. A sucker for sale, I paid 50% less or about $30+ for both at Macy’s. This line is Brazil-made and all-natural. Both have very light and sweet fragrance, perfect for bedtime.

I rarely win giveaways so I was ecstatic when I got an email from BeautyStat announcing that I won this Beyonce Pulse Summer Eau de Parfum. The scent is flirty and sweet and stays all day. I have been wearing this to work and I like that it’s not too overwhelming for summer!


Another recent favorite is this eye makeup remover from Earth Science. As mentioned in my prior review, it removes my eye makeup with ease. Plus it’s all-natural and never tested on animals. 

Lastly, I have been constantly reaching out for this eyeshadow palette from Rachel Roy. Check out the  ice shave- inspired makeup I did using this palette. The eyeshadows are soft, buttery and very pigmented. I hope to see other makeup collections from this fashion designer.

September I am ready for you! Bring it on.

P.S What are your beauty faves this past month?
