The last day of August already?! Here are my monthly beauty favourites:-

MAC Formidable nail polish was the best beauty swap this month and I can see myself wearing this shade all A/W long. NOTD here.

Lush Tea Tree Toner - Been using this for about a month now and it seems to be clearing up my skin nicely. I certainly haven't been getting as many breakouts since switching to this one.

Sleek storm eyeshadow palette has been my main go-to palette since I bought it. I've been using it almost as much as my beloved Naked palette. Swatches and looks here.

Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Usage Dry Oil (what a mouthful!) was the replacement Beauty Box item I chose and it is amazing. Seriously. So far, I've used it on the lengths of my hair as a shiny, leave in conditioner; on my face before going to bed and on my legs after shaving. It leaves my skin wonderfully soft and smells lush. A little goes a long way so I'm hoping this 10ml sample will last until I've saved up to buy the full size product.

And lastly, I've been impressed with the BareMinerals Flawless Defintion mascara which was in my first Beauty Box. This mascara is my new favourite because it seems to have it all. Sleek, matte packaging, a wand that seperates and volumises lashes, a paraben free formula AND I would say it rivals my other current favourite mascara, Clinique's High Impact. Definitely something I will buy full size.
