Time flies when you’re having fun, and oh how August has kept me busy! From swatching to spritzing, I’ve been working extra hard to bring you the crème de la crème of new beauty launches. Discover your new favourite below…
I love a good scrub, and I’ve definitely found my new favourite body buffer with the Nuxe Reve de Miel Scrub. What’s special about this exfoliator is its 93% natural formula, even those with sensitive or very dry skin can use it. For me, the combination of large sugar crystals and small self-warming rice are amazing at smoothing my skin; the aftermath feels so silky smooth and I smell delicious too!
After reading all of the buzz about the new My Burberry Blush on social media, I couldn’t wait to get spritzing. As soon as the bottle landed on my desk, I fell in love with Blush’s pretty aesthetic and fresh floral juice. How does it smell? My Burberry Blush is elegant but still playful. If like me, you’re addicted to the crisp freshness of pomegranate, then this fruity-floral scent was created for you.
New to the UK, the MAKE UP FOR EVER Radiant Primer in 11- Mauve is here to brighten your day and your complexion. Fitted with a lilac undertone to eradicate dullness and sallow tones in the skin, this purple perfector provides you with a smooth, even canvas for your makeup, day after day. Although this hue is normally recommended is for darker skin tones, my pale skin loves the lift it gives, before and after makeup.
As summer is, unfortunately, drawing to a close I made sure to fill August with as much glowing beauty possible. From sunny scents to sparkling highlighters I am completely in love with all my favourites this month and have no doubt you will be too…
In my opinion, a foundation that promises to keep your complexion luminous, even, hydrated, and shine-free all at once is well worth a try. So, throughout August I put this Guerlain Aqua Nude foundation to the test and it not only passed with flying colours, but has become my new go-to. If you’re looking for a lighter base that unifies and illuminates, I’d highly recommend this! (The above shade is 02N Clair Light).
It’s hard not to find a new fragrance to love every month when working at Escentual, and August has been no different. This month, DKNY Nectar Love has been the fragrance on my wrists and I am completely besotted. A delicious fusion of sparkling citrus notes, honeycomb neroli extract and white flowers, DKNY Nectar Love is the perfect fragrance to scent the remainder of my summer.
MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Face Color Highlighter in H106 – Shimmery Champagne
August was a huge month for MAKE UP FOR EVER, as they launched their Artist Face Color collection. A vast array of blush, highlight, and sculpting powders, the Artist Face Color line-up has something for everyone, and of course, I fell in love with a few myself! A standout favourite of mine is the highlighter in shade H106 – Shimmery Champagne, a light gold with shimmer throughout, it is the ideal pick for those that love a beautiful golden hue to their highlight.
