August Top 5 Bottom 5 | Favorites and Regrets

Hey y’all! Today I wanted to go through my Top 5 Bottom 5 for the month of August. Basically, it’s my favorites and unfavorites of products I’ve tried out and/or used in the month of August! 

Rather just watch? Here’s my video! Read on for a more in-depth review!

Bottom 5.

Lets save the best for last, right? These are the products I am totally not a fan of in August.

1. Ipsy Glam Bag.

Now, I know this isn’t a beauty product. But it’s a beauty subscription service and after quite a few months of not loving it, this month was off the deep end. Not only did I not really care for 2 of the 5 products (What’s up with the Jelly Pong Pong?), but the two products I was kinda happy for came melted and shattered. Needless to say, I’m gonna try out some other boxes for a while.

2. NYX HD Concealer

Mine was in the color Beige. Not a fan. I heard it was a good high end dupe, but honestly, it looks sooooo bad. It makes my face look way too white and my pores are terrible. It’s just not a concealer that works for my skin and after trying it for a week in August to no avail, maybe I’ll use it as an eye primer? HA.

3. Kat Von D Concealer in Light

Now, I LOVE this concealer in the color Warm! I got two sent to me in an Influenster box and while the Warm one is perfect for  a regular concealer, the light one was meant to be a highlight according to my box. However, it is not a good highlight or under eye concealer for me. It makes me look like a ghost and looks like there’s talc in it when I take a photo! (AKA white under eyes aren’t cute)

4. Covergirl Super Fibers Mascara

I tried to use this mascara up and honestly, I don’t like it at all. I’d rather stick to my Better Than Sex or my Rollerlash, because this one doesn’t really give volume, lengthen or curl.

5. Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer

Okay, so this one is little my fault. It smells soon good but I spent quite a bit on a bronzer that is not my color! The store only had one color, so I assumed it was universal. However, even though I’m fair skinned, the bronzer doesn’t even show up with color on my skin.

 

TOP 5

1. KISS #11 Lashes

These lashes are bomb. Like seriously. For me, they’re whispy and glam at the same time and while they look great, they also blend into the lashes and don’t look so fake like many other kinds I’ve tried. I wear these just so I don’t have to wear mascara, like, all the time.

2. Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer

Love this. I’ve use it in the place of primer lately, and it really does work. I love tea tree products and have most of the Body Shop’s tea tree line, and it works amazingly. It doesn’t feel like you’re putting anything on your skin either, and I use it without makeup too just to give my face a good base.

3. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation

This has been my go-to for all of the summer, really. I know some water foundations are known to be way too oily or have no coverage, but this one gives a nice sheer coverage and lasts really well. I love it for the more natural summer look and will definitely repurchase when mine’s gone.

4. Morphe 35o Palette

Needless to say, right? I can’t wait to have all the Morphe palettes at this point. I love the whole right side of the palette, which is full of warm browns and burnt oranges. They’re perfect for fall, even though I’ve been using it in the summer, too.

5. Swamp Queen Gator Wings Highlighter & Sweet Tea Bronzer

I’ve been loving these two together lately. The bronzer is super warm, which is great for summer, and the highlight gives that major glow we all want during this time of year.
