Shopping my Stash #8

Afternoon lovelies, Monday has flown by, but it is so nice know that its still the half term!

I write this as my boy cooks tea and washes up ( he's well trained) which gives me a chance to catch up on blogs and write up some posts.

This weeks make up choices are because it's half term and I never know what is coming up so I've tried to pick things that work for most occasions.

Why can't I rotate this?!
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - I'm still slogging away with this, but I have found a way to make it more bearable!

17 Cosmetics BB Cream - This is my more bearable way. I mix this with my foundation and it just makes it easier to use, plus it leaves my skin looking and feeling a bit fresher.

Elf All Over Cover Stick - Bought this ages ago so need to give it another try before I can fully comment on it.

Benefit Georgia and Benefit 10 - I love Georgia, lovely peachyness in a box that leaves a nice cover. Then we have 10 which is my first nod towards the summer. I love the bronzer in it as a contour and then mixed together to give a warmer blush on the cheeks, summer is on its way!


I've picked some bits which allow me to make lots of different eye looks, depending on what I'm doing!

MUA Heaven and Earth Pallete - I adore this, I had this before I got my Naked palette so it holds a special place. Plus I learnt to create a smokey eye with this one so I love it even more! Just wish my local Superdrug actually stocked it properly!

Maybelline 24Hr Colour Tattoo in Permanent Taupe - I plan to use this is a base for my eyeshadow or just to wear on its own. I love the colour it gives, which you can see here in this post.

17 Cosmetics Photoflawless Eye Pencil in Black/Gold - This is an oldy in my stash, I had forgotten about it but I love how it makes my eyes stand out more! I picked this colour as its supposed to make brown eyes stand out, I'm not so sure but I still love it for its staying power.

Soap and Glory Arch de Triumph - another thing I had forgotten about but I use this to fill my brows as it gives a lovely colour that doesn't leave me with a scouse brow!

Maybelline Cat Eye Mascara - Love this, it gives a full and dark eye, which wings out my eyelashes.

So there you have it, this weeks choices. If there's anything you want a fuller review on then please let me know as I have a bit of time on my hands and need some blog post ideas!

  1. The eyeshadow palette looks amazing, like a cheaper version of the UD naked palette! x
