One of my ultimate favorites for August 2023 is the RMS Supernatural Radiance Serum. This incredible product is a serum sunscreen that not only protects my skin with SPF 30, but also gives it a gorgeous, glowy finish. Available in three shades, I personally love the light Aura shade, which may sound funny with its pink tint, but blends out beautifully and provides a touch of coverage. I keep this gem in my bathroom and when I want a more even skin tone and a radiant complexion without makeup, it does wonders for my confidence.
When it comes to eye makeup, my must-have for August is the XYZ Eyeshadow Palette. This palette offers a stunning array of shades that allow for endless creativity and versatility. From soft nudes to bold metallics, this palette has it all. The formula is incredibly pigmented and easy to blend, making it a dream to work with. Whether I’m going for a natural everyday look or a dramatic evening glam, this palette has become my go-to choice.
To complete my makeup look in August, I couldn’t go without my beloved PQR Lipstick in the shade “Dazzling Rose.” This lipstick is the perfect combination of a creamy formula and a beautiful, long-lasting color payoff. The shade “Dazzling Rose” is a stunning rosy hue that instantly brightens up my complexion and adds a touch of femininity to any look. It glides on smoothly and keeps my lips moisturized throughout the day, making it a true winner in my book.

Elma Beauty has launched a range of highlighters and bronzers in creams and powders. One particular product that has caught my attention is their Double Take bronzing powder in the shade white pearl. As someone with fair skin, finding the perfect bronzer can be a challenge, but this shade is simply stunning. It gives a natural and warm glow to my complexion, without looking muddy or unnatural.
A Surprise Addition to My Routine
When I first tried Elma Beauty’s products, I expected to be obsessed with their Contour stick. And while I do love it, the Double Take bronzing powder in white pearl has quickly become my go-to makeup item. Its versatile shade makes it easy to incorporate into various looks, and I find myself reaching for it more often than I anticipated.
A Shout Out to Huda Beauty’s Easy Bake Powder
In addition to Elma Beauty’s bronzing powder, I also wanted to mention a new shade I recently purchased in the Easy Bake powder from Huda Beauty. The cherry blossom shade is absolutely stunning. It has a pinky tone, which adds a touch of warmth to my complexion. I find that this powder sets my makeup beautifully and gives a soft, airbrushed finish.

My #1 Makeup from August 2023
Natasha Denona Nude Palette: My Everyday Favorite
I recently purchased the Pat McGrath Eyes Shadow palette after watching a video on it, and I also received it as a PR package. However, surprisingly, I have been reaching for the Natasha Denona Nude Palette more often. Although I have only used the Pat McGrath palette once in the video, I find that the Natasha Denona palette fits better into my daily makeup routine.
The formula of the Natasha Denona eyeshadows is outstanding, and this particular palette has become an instant favorite. I am currently wearing it on my eyes, and it is perfect for both bridal and everyday looks. The palette offers a beautiful combination of matte and shimmer shades, along with some stunning toppers. The tones and undertones are perfectly suited for everyday wear, as well as special occasions. It is nearly impossible to go wrong with this palette, and I am truly loving it. Not to mention, the packaging is absolutely beautiful. It’s no wonder so many people are fans of this palette.
Obsessed with Lip Liners
In addition to the eyeshadow palette, let’s talk about some lip products. I have discovered two drugstore lip liners that have become my new obsession. Looking at them now, I realize they may be quite similar in color, but I have not yet swatched them side by side to confirm. Nevertheless, I have been using both of these lip liners religiously.
Swatching and Comparing Lip Products
Now that I have both lip liners in front of me, I can see that they are indeed very similar in color. However, upon swatching them side by side, I can still spot some subtle differences. One of the lip liners has a slightly warmer undertone, while the other is a touch cooler. Nonetheless, both shades are beautiful and complement a variety of lipsticks.
Rimmel Cappuccino Lip Liner
The Rimmel Cappuccino Lip Liner is my absolute favorite makeup item from August 2023. This lip liner is simply stunning, with its beautiful brown shade that has a hint of mauve. When blended out, it contours and shapes the lips perfectly. The brown color is the dominant shade, but the subtle touch of mauve adds an extra level of depth to the overall look. I cannot get enough of this lip liner!
Nyx Suede Matte Lip Liner in Maon
The second lip liner on my list is the Nyx Suede Matte Lip Liner in the shade Maon. Although this one is lighter, it still carries the same vibe as the Rimmel lip liner. It amazes me how I can fall in love with two lip liners that appear so similar. But here’s the thing, the Maon shade is a bit brighter, yet you can still achieve the same stunning effect. I have to admit, I’m a bit obsessed with shade and lip liners right now, and these two are definitely my top favorites.
Lisa alrd’s Velvetine Liquid Lip Color
Lisa alrd has once again impressed me with her Velvetine Liquid Lip Color. While I received several shades, I’ve only tried the Rain color so far, and let me tell you, it is absolutely stunning. I often opt for liquid lipsticks because of their longevity, and wearing a bit of color adds that extra oomph to my look. The Velvetine Liquid Lip Color delivers on both fronts – it lasts for hours and provides a gorgeous pop of color that I can’t get enough of.
All in all, these lip liners and liquid lip color have truly captured my heart this August. The Rimmel Cappuccino Lip Liner and Nyx Maon Lip Liner are both fantastic in their own ways, offering different shades and blending capabilities. And Lisa alrd’s Velvetine Liquid Lip Color is the cherry on top, providing long-lasting color that elevates any makeup look. I can’t wait to continue using and exploring these amazing products!
My #1 Makeup from August 2023
Liquid Lipstick in a Beautiful Color
If I’m doing more of a nude lip, I don’t always reach for liquid lipsticks. However, this month I discovered a gorgeous color that I just had to share. I actually used this lipstick in a video, which you can find linked below. The formula is absolutely amazing – it can be blended out for a more sheer look, or built up for a bold, opaque finish. Not only is it long-lasting, but it’s also incredibly comfortable to wear. And let’s not forget about the packaging – it’s so pretty! Lisa, the creator of this lipstick, can truly do no wrong in my eyes. Her brand is simply stunning.
High Shine Lip Glosses
Aside from the liquid lipstick, I also fell in love with two glosses this month. One of them is the Morphe Drip Glass Glazed High Shine Lip Gloss in the shade “Polished Peach.” This is what I have been wearing all over my lips. I simply outline my lips with a NYX lip liner and then fill them in with this gorgeous gloss. Although it’s described as “polished peach,” I find it to be more on the pink side. It’s not too warm, though – it falls right in the middle, a lovely neutral peachy-pink. This gloss isn’t sticky at all, it’s just really pretty.
The other gloss I purchased is the Dior Lip Maximizer in the shade “Opal.” This gloss is simply divine.
My #1 Makeup from August 2023
A Touch of Magic – Kelly, Anne Makeup
I recently purchased a makeup product by Kelly, Anne that I initially wouldn’t have picked up. It has a clear base, which is not something I usually go for. However, what caught my attention was the stunning iridescent golden and purple shift it had. The true beauty of this product is difficult to capture on my hand; it is something that needs to be experienced in person. When I applied it to my lips, it added a touch of magic and a hint of cool tones with a frosted look that was surprisingly wearable. Despite appearing dull in the tube, once swatched or applied, it transforms into something truly beautiful.
A Surprising Drugstore Gem – Physicians Formula Brow Gel
As someone who has primarily used high-end brow gels, I was shocked to discover a drugstore brow gel that I absolutely love. In my experience, not all drugstore brow gels hold my brows the way I want them to. However, the Physicians Formula Butter Brazilian Brow Lift Brow Gel has exceeded my expectations. It is comparable to the high-end Patrick T. brow gel, with a slightly thinner formula. What amazed me even more was that the applicator is virtually identical to the Patrick T. brow gel, delivering precise and effortless application.
With these two makeup products from August 2023, I have found my current favorites. The Kelly, Anne makeup brings a touch of magic and a hint of cool tones, while the Physicians Formula Brow Gel provides excellent hold and precision. Finding unexpected gems like these truly enhances my beauty routine and adds excitement to my makeup collection.
The Perfect Brow Look: Lamination Brow Gel
Let me show you, so you really do get the same feel and same effect hold on; the wands themselves are a different size, but you can see they’re literally the same exact brush head, which is crazy um. So you get the exact same kind of lamination brow effect these lamination brow products are definitely not for the faint of heart they’re going to feel a little more glued to your head.
A Super Laminated Look Without the Crust
If you’re not into that, you might not like this formula, but if you want that, if you want like that, super laminated look um without it going like crusty this. I haven’t noticed this getting like flaky. However, with these products like in general, the nature of these lamination brow gels, you really don’t want to overdo it like one swipe and work on one brow at a time once it dries, you don’t want to go back in, otherwise, it can kind of build up. So just a tip, but I haven’t noticed any like buildup with this product and I do layer it in my brows quite a bit so wanted to mention this as well, ‘cuz it’s so good, plus it’s from the drugstore who doesn’t love that wait hold on.
Multi-Functional Concealer: Tower 28 to the Rescue
I was going to put this in my favorites video because this is also a new try, but I’ve been wearing it. So much that I wanted to mention it so that’s the Tower 28 concealer. I love how this looks under the eyes you guys, plus all over the face, like almost as a foundation.
The Strawberry Girl Makeup
During the month of August 2023, I had the opportunity to try out the much-talked-about strawberry girl makeup. To my surprise, it blended out flawlessly all over my face, providing the coverage I desired. However, what made it truly exceptional was that it still managed to give me a natural skin-like appearance when I set it underneath my eyes.
There have been mixed reviews about this particular makeup look, mainly because concealers are very personal and dependent on individual skin types and texture preferences. Yet, for someone like me, it has been working splendidly. I should note that I usually set it with the Hood of Beauty powder, and this combination has been a winning formula for me.
A New Favorite
My experience with the strawberry girl makeup has been so remarkable that I felt compelled to include it in my must-haves for the month. From the moment I first tried it, I instantly fell in love. It seamlessly airbrushes the skin, giving it an ethereal and flawless finish. I cannot stress enough how much I adore this makeup.
By the way, the shade I wear is Be You, and it suits me perfectly. I cannot express enough how much I enjoy using this makeup on a daily basis. Despite being a recent discovery, it has quickly become an essential part of my routine.
It is important to remember that the way a concealer appears can be influenced by various factors. Some people choose not to set their concealer, which can alter its final appearance. This is why it is crucial to find what works best for you and experiment with different techniques and products, just like I did with the Hood of Beauty powder.
Ultimately, concealers are a personal choice, and what works for one person may not work for another. However, if you are in search of a concealer that effortlessly blends into your skin, providing the coverage you desire while maintaining a natural look, I highly recommend giving the strawberry girl makeup a try. It might just become your new favorite, much like it did for me.
