August, the month where you are fully immersed in the summer. It’s not the beginning, it’s not the end, it’s that time where summer is in full swing. During the summer months, you tend to find those things that you fall in love with, whether it’s that special summer dress, the “On Fleek” highlighter or that summer scent and these become your August favorites.
We are excited to show you the curvy girl approved favorites that we fall in love with during the month of August.
Summer Boardwalk Candle (Bath and Body Works) – If you love the walking into your home and it smells as though Grandma is in the kitchen baking your favorite fall treat then you’ll love this scent. You can’t go wrong with this 3-wick candle that will last for many hours. The candles usually run $22.50, but don’t walk away just yet…Bath and Body Works will host a sale pretty often where you can pick these up for 2 for $24! Now that’s a deal.
Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche – Who doesn’t like smelling like you just stepped out of the shower? Chanel Chance is a fresh, clean and crisp scent that is perfect for the summer. The subtleness of this scent lingers throughout the day, but is not overpowering. Chanel Chance is about $70 for 1.7 fl. oz.
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip In LIMBO and LAX – Summer is all about that Perfect Ice Cream cone, delicious drinks by the pool and best munchies foods…But your lipstick never seems to last through all of the goodies…well not until the array of Liquid Lipsticks that hit the seen this year. Colourpop has been leading the pack with their Liquid to Matte selection and I’ve been loving them during this entire summer. I’ve gone hours, eating, drinking and not reapplying lipstick because of my Ultra Matte Lip. These are an amazing cost, only $6 each.
Limbo and LAX are two colors that we are loving that are perfect for transitioning into fall. Limbo is a good neutral for women of color and LAX is just cozy fall color but we’ve been rocking this during summer as well!
MAC Matte Blush in Film Noir – During summer, we start looking into what the fall season will be bringing us and we have found the perfect blush. MAC’s Film Noir is the best color to wear on those cool nights, amber mornings, sitting with bae in front of a roaring fire with those cheeks on fleek…There goes that saying again but believe me. This is the blush that you want for fall. It’s deep, but will give the cheeks that flushed looked. The blush cost about $22 each.
LUSH Popcorn Lip Scrub – The hot weather can cause your lips to become dry, but we know that is a No No…So, we’ve found the perfect lip scrub to help eliminate dry lips, exfoliate and moisturize. The LUSH Lip scrub is perfect for summer, who doesn’t like the taste of Kettle Corn on their lips.
We prefer to use the lip scrub as a part of the night routine and follow-up with your favorite lip conditioner. All you do, is apply to lips with your finger, gently rubbing back and forth or rub your lips together. Wipe off and you’ll have lips that feel soft and supple. Oh..and they will taste like Kettle Corn!
Makeup Forever Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation – To keep makeup in place, reduce shine and give you that overall flawless look. We are loving MUFE Pro-Finish Foundation. Yes, it’s a foundation but it works great as a powder too. It will give you a little additional coverage when used on top of your favorite cream foundation, but what we’ve found is that you don’t get that cakey look.
When used alone, it helps to reduce shine and will give a little coverage, so this is perfect for those summer days where foundation or even BB cream is too much.
Lotta Body Coconut and Shea Oils Moisturize Me, Wrap Me and Love Me – Combating dryness during the summer months can be a difficult task with humidity added it’s can be nearly impossible. Lotta Body hair products has recently reformulated their products to include Coconut and Shea Oils and we have been loving how moisturized our hair is feeling.
If you’re familiar with Lotta Body, then you probably remember the Setting Lotion that you needed to dilute with water, well that is no longer the case with this new formula. The Moisturize Me product is just that..Moisturizing. We like to use it before the Wrap Me Foaming Mousse to give the hair that added shine and softness. The Wrap Me mousse if perfect for giving that hair definition for twist-out, bantu knots and other styles. The 5-in-1 Love Me Miracle Styling Creme is the perfect detanlger, literally melting away any tangles and knots.
We’ve had a lot of fun using and loving these products, but we want hear from you. Have you used any of the products listed and which were your August favorites? Haven’t used any of these…then tell us what products you’ve been loving for the month of August.
