As per usual I have been switching my makeup products around during the last month or so. Above are a few of my recent rediscoveries. I do enjoy switching up my makeup routine, I don't like getting stuck in a rut, using the same products or doing the same look all the time. It just gets boring. I have all these different products in my collection so I am going to make the most of them! (And use some up too hopefully!) 

First up we have the Bare Minerals all over face colour in 'Warmth' I got this in a starter kit Tom kindly gave me for my birthday last year (I highly recommend you try this out!) You may be thinking that using a loose powder bronzer may be messy..well in some ways you are right. If I forget to close it properly the next time I open it I am faced with a shed load of powder, because the sort of 'safety sheild' hasn't been closed meaning while its in my makeup bag the powder comes out into the lid. It's not a huge problem, just a pain in the bum really! You hardly need any product as it has brilliant pigmentation. A little goes a long way meaning this pot will last me ages!
Staying with face products, the next gem from my collection I have been using is the Topshop Cream Blush in Head over Heels. If you have seen my 'products I've hit pan on' post you will know I am a big fan of their blushers and Flush is slowly being used up! I figured I'd crack on with using one of the other shades instead, and give that one a rest! Head over heels is a beautiful coral shade that lasts the entire day on my cheeks, with no need to reapply! Winner! 

Moving onto my eyes, I have a lot of eye products so I'm really trying to switch these around a fair bit so I don't forget about products and try to finish them! The liquid liners I had been using were on their last legs so rather than going out and re purchasing, I decided to switch back to my trusty Topshop Gel liner in 'Ink'. It does take a little bit longer to do in the mornings and I'm still on a mission to create the perfect flick! If I'm honest, I think I should throw out this gel liner soon as I'm sure its coming up to its expiry date? - How long should you keep them for? If anyone knows let me know!  I've been enjoying simple make up recently so the Maybelline colour tattoo in 'on and on bronze' has been perfect. I am a big fan of cream shadows, purely because they are easy to use when in a rush in the mornings - lets me honest if we can have that extra 10 mins in bed we will! They also work really well as a base for powder eyeshadows.

Finally, I am really trying to make the effort to use some of my lipsticks. I have a rather large selection and I am on the case to downsize it just like I did with my nail varnishes (post here) Therefore I have been making the effort to try to use some of them on a more regular basis. My lipstick of choice recently has been this  Stila lipstick in the shade 'Chelsea' its gives a quite sheer coral  tint to the lips which is buildable. It's a great one to just have in my handbag and slick on when I've forgotten to pick up one of my more pigmented lipsticks. I bought this particular one in my local TKMAXX when they went through a phase of stocking stila makeup. Just as a heads up, I popped in there yesterday and noticed some Dainty Doll, Orly, Bourjois, Revlon & Jemma kidd products in there  - Unfortunately there was no LAA Foundation. :-( - So if you are after a bargain maybe it's worth going to have a look.

Have you rediscovered any products you've been neglecting recently?


Much Love,

  1. I really need to do something like this to make me use up products. I'm one of those people who use exactly the same things every day.

  6. We have really similar tastes! I love Head Over Heels, and I have a really similar product to the Bare Minerals one from E.L.F which has lasted forever and was so cheap. On & On Bronze is a staple of mine, and although I haven't got it, the colour of that lipstick is just lovely!

  10. I haven't tried any of the Maybelline Colour Tattoos yet but really want to! As for the gel liner I'd just keep using it til it dries out but then I'm not fussy with expiration dates at all!
