Monthly Favorites: August 2012

Happy Wednesday everyone! I have been so busy with traveling and the start of the school year for both me and my son that I just now had a chance to do this post.  I can't believe that the summer is over and September is here already.

 I am very excited because this is my first ever "Monthly Favorites" post! Here we go!

 Bath and Body Works Wild Apple Daffodil body Scrub
I love their body scrubs and this scent is amazing.  It is very light and fresh.  Unfortunately, it was only a seasonal scent. 

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
This scent is pure coconut heaven.  The body butter is thick but easy to work into your skin. I loved using this every day.  It left my skin moisturized but not greasy.  I picked this mini up at the counter in Ulta but I will definitely purchase the large size and use it to help with my dry winter skin.  

Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer in Radiant
This is a salmon colored concealer and it really helps to conceal the dark circles under my eyes.  I have an 11 week old and I don't get a lot of sleep.  This concealer gives me a "my baby slept through the night look"! 

Sonia Kashuk Blush in Sunset
I absolutely love this blush.  The color is a stunning coral and the price can't be beat! I found myself reaching for this blush most of the month.  It was perfect for summer cheeks.  

Essie Lapiz of Luxury
This is one of my all time favorite summer polishes to wear. I wore it on my toes for most of the month of August.  I just love the color!

Cover Girl Lash Blast Waterproof Mascara
This was a new product for me this summer.  I'm pretty picky about my mascara and tend to stick to only Maybelline and Loreal for drug store mascaras.  I tried this on a whim and really like the formula.  It does great for my lashes and it doesn't flake!

MAC Cut A Caper
I recently did a post on this lipstick, you can see it here.  Once I retried this lipstick and realized I loved it, I couldn't stop using it.  The color is a soft coral and one of my new summer favorites.

I would love to hear what some of your August favorites were!



  1. The body scrubs are amazing! I am using sweet pea right now and love it! I also loved the coconut body butter, and when I need a new body butter I will definitely consider repurchasing!

    I have been loving my too faced BB creme, Dior lipgloss in Sari Pink, Loreal Voluminous mascara, Coralista blush, and Airy Fairy lipstick by Rimmel!

    1. I am dying to try a Dior lip gloss, possible Christmas list item. =)Loreal Voluminous has always been one of my favs!

      Great Favorites!

  2. Great faves! The coconut body butter is one of my all time faves from The Body Shop. Hope the start of the school year is going well for you both!
