Shopping my stash #13

Afternoon lovelies, hope your well. I'm taking a short break from report writing today to blog so this is it and then it's back to the grind - I might switch to writing planning soon as I'm bored of reports! 

So this week has been a very delayed week, I've spent time at my parents home which chills me out and I didn't want to come back to reality! But I need to be back into some sort of routine, so I thought I would show you what makeup I'm wearing on my week off. 


- Benefit Porefessional - I am officially in love with this, it smooths out my skin, so I use less foundation but I still have enough coverage. I apply this with my Real Techniques Stippling brush to get full coverage and then use the same brush to apply the foundation. 

- Benefit Hello Flawless foundation - This is something I'm loving at the moment. It works really well with the primer, and it leaves my oily skin quite matte for quite a while, and it's doesn't cling to my dry bits.

- Benefit Benetint - I've owned this for a while and I love it on my pale skin all year round. I had forgotten about it until recently but I like to mix it with the Sunbeam to give a sun kissed glow.

- Benefit Sunbeam - This is a really new product, I bought it with visions of playing with it on sun kissed skin now summer is upon us...that plan didn't work out as well as planned, so I've had to rework it with the Benetint. I will write a review of this soon, showing how I use it but so far I like it. 

- Mac Harmony Blush - This is more of a bronze then a blush on me so I use it as a contour shade, warming up. Y snow white skin to bring a healthy summer glow, another product to review at some point. 


- Urban Decay Naked Palette - Not very original this week but this travels well and gives me all the colours I need. 

- Maybelline Colossal Volume Waterproof Mascara - its that time of year where my eyes start streaming for no apparent reason and I end up looking like a member of KISS so waterproof is a must 

- Inka Mineral Eyeliner - This was in a Glossybox and since I've started using it, I've grown to love it! So I've been using it quite a bit recently as its quite a nice, neutral brown liner.

- Benefit Lemon Aid - A brilliant eyebase that helps keep my eyeshadow in place, or I just wear this alone if I'm in need for an awake look.

So there you have it, half term make up. It's quite a lot but I don't wear it all every day - today for example I'm wearing no make up as I need to give my skin a rest. Also its very Benefit heavy, that is because a lot of my basics are from there as I like the quality and I've had them a very long time! 

Any items you use and love from my stash? Have you shopped your stash this week?



  1. I do love a bit of Benefit too, the quality is definitely worth the pricetag!
    Do you find that you wear different make-up during the holidays than you would during term time? I definitely am a lot more glam in the holidays, with dramatic eyes but I keep it simple for school.

  2. i love the look of all your products :) really want to try out the benefit foundation! I like using porefessional atm! x
