August Favourites

Sorry, I'm a little late on this post (and lacking in posts in general recently) but I'm back into the blogging mood and I'm going to try to stop feeling sorry for myself and get some posting done!
Yes ladies, I am now the proud owner of a Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer palette - I was so excited for my friend to return from holiday so I could get this baby and I'm not disappointed! I'll be reviewing this but so far I'm loving it and it does indeed live up to the hype!
I now own a Sigma brush, I bought this travel flat top Kabuki from a blog sale and I'm so glad, I've been using this to apply liquid foundation and it gives the most amazing air brushed finish! As it's a travel brush it fits easily into my make up bag - I'm still going to buy the infamous F80 though.
I've been rediscovering a couple of products that I've otherwise ignored recently - MAC's so sweet, so easy cream blush which gives a sheer and build able wash of colour to the cheeks. I posted about this blush here another pink blush I've been loving lately is my Majolica Majorca blush in PK03 which I also posted about here these are such pretty blushes which I like to use when I'm rockin' a smokey eye because it gives a hint of colour. 
Another product I've been loving is Avon's illuminating face pearls, pretty to use either as a highlight or lightly all over the face for some radiance - amazing when you're feeling very tired and need that extra little boost!
These two products I use in conjunction with each other, these featured in a recent haul post (which you can see here) I bought this MAC cream colour base in "Pearl" to use as a highlight and since buying it I've not used anything else for the job - I'm really loving this product and will definitely repurchase when the time comes. I apply this highlighter using my MAC 227SE brush which came in the Cinematics all over brush set - I love this set because the colours of the bristles are so colourful and cute! 
I've also been loving my Chanel quad in "Mystic Eyes" - I posted about this here - I love, love, love this it's so simple to create a beautiful smokey eye with this quad. I've also been loving my MAC paint pot in Rubenesque which also featured in a recent haul post (click here!) it's such a pretty colour and I love how versitile it is, it can be used as an eyeshadow base and also looks so, so pretty on its own!
I'm sure you'll recognise the Soliel tan de Chanel (Bronze universal) which has been featured in a previous favourites post (read my post about it here) it's become part of my daily make up routine I am so in love with this product!
Another mac product from this cheeky haul post! I'm loving this shade "shy girl" is such a pretty peachy nude, I've been wearing it so much recently, it really recommend this lipstick to those scared of nudes, it's a cremesheen finish too which means it doesn't dry out your lips! 
I was unsure whether to include the final product - Vo5's miracle concentrate because I've not had it for very long, I have however used it every day since buying it! It's so lovely to use - it makes my hair look shiny and a lot healthier than it is!
