August Favorites [Hits & Misses for Foundation/Skin and Color] + Video Details

August has just flown by, but my, has it been a month full of memories! I am looking forward to cooler weather in September and maybe a break from buying makeup. As much as I love makeup, keeping up with the collections for my blog becomes overwhelming sometimes. I have also been lax with working out, I've just been eating healthier (though I could eat even healthier to cut more fat).. so I need to head to the gym every day like I used to. M-F, no more excuses! Hope you guys have had a great month of August, too! Let's look forward to September together ;)

  1. how well does the shu uemura cleansing oil take off w/p mascara? also, as someone with short, straight stubborn asian lashes i highly recommend you try out the l'oreal 24hr power collagen w/p mascara (the brush is so similar to lancome hypnose and the formula is awesome), and also the maybelline colossal mascara w/p (makes your eyelashes look massive! the formula is so lengthening and thickening!

  2. great video rae! what's the difference between the old and new burberry foundations besides the level of coverage?

  3. which was the baby sample from glossybox???

  4. I sampled Burberry Velvet Foundation, the jury is still out whether I like it or not. I know I like the original foundation because I have drier skin.
