Make Up Shake Up! Shopping my stash #3, with Clarins, MAC, Revlon, Clinique, Louise Young and Creme De La Mer!



This is week three of the Make Up Shake Up series - see how it started, here.  Keep reading to see what beauty products are in this week's make up bag!

EYES: I'm keeping it simple this week with the matte ivory colour from my Louise Young Essential eye palette and my favourite MAC eyeshadow, Sumptuous Olive - a Christmas gift. I'll be using the darkest brown from the palette on my eyebrows too. The mascara is a new one I'm trialling, from Clinique - I'll bring you my thoughts on it soon!  

LIPS: Tutti Frutti is the latest addition to my collection of Revlon Lip Butters - check out the rest of them here. It's a very close call between this one and Candy Apple as my favourite - they're both gorgeous. This one's a creamy orange shade.  

My lips are a bit dry at the moment so I've also popped my Creme De La Mer lip balm into the bag.



CHEEKS: I can't wait to play about with this MAC Mineralize blusher this week - it's Solar Ray, from the Heavenly Creature collection. Look how pretty it swatches beside Sumptuous Olive and Tutti Frutti - love!

FACE: I'm trialling a new foundation this week - my first loose mineral powder one, so I'm interested to see how it performs. It's the Clarins Skin Illusions Loose Powder Foundation and it will be released as part of the brand's autumn collection. We were given it at the press launch last week.

What do you think of this week's selection? If you've tried any of it, let me know how you got on!

Ohh I am loving the shade of the MAC Olive eyeshadow! I actually want to purchase my own after seeing how lovely it looks here.

Love the colours you've chosen this week Emma, I'm still undecided whether to get tutti frutti or not, it seems to be a firm favourite for most people so I might just have to get it! Love the colour of the eye shadow too, I might try a look with olive green this week!

I have Tutti Frutti! It's a great color. Fabulous lip balm. My lips are dryer these days too, so I've been using a lot of balm also. Have a great week :D

Gorgeous gorgeous colours for summer (now if only the sun would come out!). I love that blush. I've been using cream blush the last few years as I have very dry skin but might be tempted to go back to powder now...
