Obsessed: August 2014

Why hello there! It’s the very last Friday in August, and we wanted to try out a new feature – Obsessed. Just to fill you in on what we were obsessed with this month – the one (or two – but this will never be a long list because we want to keep it truly exclusive to our obsessions) product that we just couldn’t get enough of this month.

This month, I was obsessed with shopping my stash, and specifically, this little gem: L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24 Hr Eyeshadow in Amber Rush. It’s a gorgeous rose gold shadow that I bought awhile back and just rediscovered, for whatever reason (funny how that works, right?). If you watch enough YouTube beauty tutorials, you’ll come across this one for sure. This is one of those products that photos just can’t do justice to, but I’m linking here to Temptalia’s post with swatches – it probably comes closest to the amazingness that is Amber Rush IRL. It’s so versatile – I know I’m gushing here – and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s dramatic enough to be great all on its own (I like to pat it all over my lid with my finger and then blend it out up towards my brows), and it also makes a more complicated eye look really “pop”. Just get yourself to a drugstore STAT and give it a look, ok?

I’m obsessing over the oh-so-adorable mini Hourglass lipstick that I picked up at Sephora via a VIB 500 point perk. The color is described as a “light peachy beige” but it reads as more of a pinky nude to me. It’s pretty much my exact natural lip color, but just kicked up a notch or two. I’ve been reaching for it basically every morning, and lately I’ve been topping it off with the Sugar Shine Lip Treatment (clear) gloss from Fresh.

How about you – what were you obsessed with this month?

Cheers,
