My August favourites

main image

I have lots of new things to share this month. It was my birthday last week so I was lucky enough to get some of these as presents!

First are my new things from Mac.
These ones were gifts from my hubby (I know, he did very well. I suspect he said “what’s new .. Ok I’ll take that!!;-) )
I love this make up bag, the print on it is so cute. Inside it came with a lipgloss ‘picture pink’ , lipstick ‘girl about town’ and lipliner ’embrace me’


Also in this new range I got this compact- it contains a blusher, 4 eye shadows and 2 lip glosses.
What’s great about this is it came with pictures and instructions on what shadow to use where on the eye lid. Super for people who aren’t too sure what goes where.



Finally from Mac I got this little brush set and pouch. The brushes are a handy size for your bag. It’s a lovely set if you’re starting out buying brushes and want good basics.
I think these make gorgeous gifts. I don’t know any girl that wouldn’t appreciate these!


I’m familiar with the Emma Hardie range- sold here in Arnotts. It’s an English company. I’ve used the eye cream and face serum before. I loved them , they are gorgeous products that really work.
New to me this month was this hand cream- it smells divine, like you’re in a spa. I put lots on at night time before I go to sleep, my hands are so soft by morning time.


Finally from my beauty favourites are some Vanity products. I was first introduced to Vanity last year. I’m really impressed by their range. They are based in Maynooth, Co Kildare.


I’m always always talking about this product, it’s an illuminator called Golden Glow- this is my favourite from the brand.
I use it everyday- nearly everywhere!
On my brow bone, on the corner of my eye lids, on my cheek bones, on my nose and cuspid’s bow (top of your lip)
It gives a fresh glowing appearance.
Isn’t that what we all want!!

This lipgloss is a gorgeous pinky colour- I use it during the day and it’s very long lasting. It’s called Flamingo.

I think tinted moisturisers are super, especially for day time when you’re in a hurry. Pop this on quickly with some bronzer and you’re good to go. No need for foundation. This one has an SPF 30 in it which is super.

Vanity can be bought in store or online

Last but not least on my list is this fabulous necklace – Yes, it’s from Zara, shock! Anyone that follows me on Instagram especially will know how much I love Zara. It’s just brilliant. They are bang on trend and their prices are so good.
I love all their costume neck pieces , this one was €27.95, I’m wearing a mint colour dress to a wedding in a few weeks , it’s quite plain and I think this will be lovely with it.


That’s it for now!

Let me know if you’ve tried any of the products I mentioned and what you thought.

Love Pippa x
