August Favorites!

Hey everyone!

I missed my monthly favorites last month, because I really didn’t have any, lol. I did have one- using a shimmery blush as a highlighter also- for instance, Wet n’ Wild’s Pearlescent Pink. It’s a gorgeous peachy pink that adds some gold shimmer. Actually, that led to an obsession with cheek products which has continued into this month. Ready to see them? Here goes:

Clockwise from bottom right: MAC Plumfoolery blush, Revlon Pure Confection highlighter, Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation

A closer look at the beautifulness that is Pure Confection

Swatches from top to bottom: Revlon Pure Confection highlighter, MAC Plumfoolery blush, Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation

MAC Plumfoolery blush- This was my first MAC product I ever bought and I love it. It goes nicely against any skintone, like my fair-to-medium complexion. It’s got very fine shimmer sprinkled lightly throughout so it does add warm up your face a bit.

Revlon Pure Confection highlighting powder- This was limited edition from last year’s Revlon Pure Confection collection and I was lucky enough to find it on clearance at my Walgreens. I am so glad I did! It has gorgeous mint green, pink, and a hint of copper-y bronze-ish golden veining. If you wear it by itself, the pink does show up enough to be a legit blush, and it’s finely milled so it doesn’t make you look like a disco ball.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse foundation- Check out my review here to see what I have to say about this lovely gem!

Copper shade from Victoria Jackson palette- I ADORE this because it has “spiced up” my boring neutral-eye look. Sometimes I’ll put this in the inner corner and other times over a dark brown in the crease.
 Anyways, I’ll be posting something later this week about this little treasure :) It doesn't look metallic in the pics below bu it definitely has that look.

The copper shade is the one in the middle, to the right of the ivory one
Have you had any monthly favorites? Let me know in the comments below or, if you have a blog, leave a link and I would love to look at them!



  1. I have a few MAC blushes, but the price just doesn't match the quality. My jane and wnw blushes are softer and more pigmented. My favorites this month are mostly high end, I feel bad posting them!

  2. I really like WnW Pearlescent Pink but I actually use it straight as blush. It is too pigmented to be highlighter! But yeah, definitely one of my faves too... that Revlon one looks awesome!!

  3. @PoorCollegeStudent- Sorry to hear about your bad experience with those blushes :( I like Plumfoolery because it's pretty unique- I just can't find a drugstore blush with such purple tones!

    Maybe you could do a video on them? I would still love to see them!

    @ndoodles- I use it as a blush/highlighter in one- I don't need to use a highlighter because of it! :) Yes, it is completely gorgeous- I wish they could make it permanent so everyone can have one!

  4. @Heather- Thanks! I love the pinky glow it gives! :)
