You know your stash is too big when you open the drawer and think, “what shall I wear today?”
In the last week I have been trying to rotate my make-up choices to give things a bit more use, and to get out of that rut of wearing the same things over and over again.
So here are this week’s items I keep going back to.
I’ve been trying my best to keep to my resolutions that I blogged about here. I received a Boots voucher for Christmas and bought the Clarins blue orchid facial oil, and received free samples of the Multi Active day and night creams. Although they are only small, I’ve really enjoyed using these products. They smell nice and keep my skin moisturised, without irritating my eyes which has been a problem lately. I’ve also surprised myself with this Botanics cleanser which I picked up on a whim when at my parents’ house over Christmas with no cleanser and a post-Christmas facial spot-fest. I apply to a dry face, with or without make-up, and remove with a damp flannel.
Really liking the Nivea Express Hydration primer I picked up from Boots in November, it creates such a nice base for make-up. I much prefer it to MAC Prep and Prime. Clarins Instant Smooth is on the wish list to try after this.
I totally fell for the No7 Foundation Match hype and was matched the week it was launched (to the shade Calico, if you’re interested) and bought the Stay Perfect foundation. I’ve only opened it this week but really liking it so far. I left for work at 7.30am on Thursday and didn’t get home to midnight; the day involved a long rehearsal followed by a concert which was VERY sweaty and this foundation lasted brilliantly. It photographs ok too.
I must have owned MAC Blushbaby for about 4 years and I used to use it religiously. It fell out of favour but I’m now firmly back on the bandwagon.
Finally, 17 Mirror Shine in Belle is great for work – it lasts quite well and is good for disguising my pale lips without going colour overboard.
