August 2017 Favorites*

Cover FX - Enhancer Drops
This drops offer a beautiful natural highlight should you choose to have it subtle, and builds up to a blinding highlight wherever you please. I always choose to use this to achieve that JLO glow and I love it on my cheekbones, or on my lids - and even mixed with my foundation. 

IT Cosmetics - CC Cream
This has been my go-to foundation the past summer, as well as on my trip to the Dominican. It protected my face so well from the sun that my face didn't experience any sun damage, while my chest and shoulders experienced some minor sunburn. This stuff is amazing, it does not go on too thick, it photographs well and is unscented which works beautifully for me. In addition, I do not feel this on my face when applied and does not feel cakey or get oily throughout the day. I am so happy that they carry this in Canada now! I had to travel to the US to buy this before! That's how much I love it. Until October, you can use my code - ITGIRLCHAN on the Canadian IT Cosmetics website for 10% off! (I do not make anything off the code, so please feel free to use it!)

Urban Decay - Illusion Primer
This primer smooths out any enlarged pores on my face and creates an even canvas for my make-up application! 

Vita Liberata - Self Tan Bronzing Minerals
I have talked about this product before and I am still in love with it. It works as a bronzer, that actually works to provide you with a lasting tan as well. Therefore, please be gentle when you use this - you should not aim for an oompa-loompa look. A light dusting on the areas of your face where the sun naturally hits, and you will see that your face will gradually get more tanned through the day and it lasts for a few days.

Guerlain - Terracotta - Natural Brunette
Guerlain bronzers have always delivered a natural sun kissed look to the face that makes you look like you just came back from vacation. Do not get me wrong, this product does not come without a luxurious pricetag - however, if you do feel like spoiling yourself on a worth-it product, than this is for you.

Dior - Rouge Dior Lipstick
This is a great liquid lipstick that does not dry out your lips or settle in fine lines. It dries down without the metallic scent that some brands have (I know it sounds weird, but it is hard to explain the difficulties I have had with other brands). The colors are pigmented, and does not become streaky when swatched over.

YSL - Volupte Tint-In-Balm
These moisturizing lipsticks are lightly fruity scented and delivers hydration to your lip with a sheer wash of color. This is an ultimate luxury balm if you want to treat yourself! 

Burberry Cat Eye Liner - Jet Black
The liquid liner, though not immensely pigmented, I love it for how ultra fine the tip is. It works to create a very thin wing and even for any detail graphic liner work you would like to do. In addition, the olive cream/powder shadow on the other end with the smudge applicator allows you to take this on the go for any touch-ups.

Marc Jacobs - Highliner Gel Eye Crayon
These crayons, no matter the shade are AMAZING. Once applied, they do not budge at all. They are waterproof and never loses its color payoff. I want them in ALL colors.

Saje - Peppermint Halo 
I've recommended this product to friends, family and coworkers and none of them have regretted purchasing it. You put it on your pressure points, along the back and base of the neck to the hairline, and on your temples. This is wonderful! It eases any mild headaches to pounding migraines you may have within minutes.
