Make Up Shake Up! Shopping my stash #4, with Bourjois, NYC, Chanel, Clarins, Korres, Benefit and Dior!



This is week four of the Make Up Shake Up series - see what it's all about here, or keep reading for a peek into this week's make up bag!

EYES: I'm going for a simple summery look this week so I'll be using the gold shade from this Bourjois trio. It's part of their autumn collection, but used alone without the green and khaki colours, it's still quite a summery shade. I'll also be using this gold eye pencil from NYC, and the Chanel mascara I showed you here. My trusty Clarins brow kit will finish things off.



 
LIPS:  My lips are still a little dry so this Korres lip butter in Pomegranate should help sort that out.

CHEEKS: This week I'm looking forward to trying out Benefit's Cha Cha tint - I have a generous little sample that should easily last a week or two. I'll be combining that with another wee sample of Sun Beam, the bronzey liquid highlighter from the brand.  

FACE: It's back to my favourite Dior BB cream this week - I have a few flaky patches right now thanks to a new skincare routine (I'll tell you all about it very soon) and I'm hoping this won't highlight the problem.

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

Like the look of those Borjois shadows, even the khaki ones :)

Cheryl said...

Lovely colours. I've never tried green eye shadow. I always stay away from coloured shadow as I never put it on right. Lovely post!

In the summer I like very much gold coloured makeup. You can use it to give the illusion of skin glowing after a sunbathe even when (my case) you carefully protect your face with 50+ filter to prevent dark spots.Now I'll go and have a look at the other three makeup bags!

Love the Korres lip butters, they have great pigmentation for a tint!

I need to try the Korres Lip Butter! The combination of the golds and greens is a great idea. I love a little shimmer - so chic!

I love that gold shade of the Bourjois eyeshadow, I think its such a versatile colour. Some of that lovely lip butter would be really good right now!

I've been looking for a good cheek/lip tint. I've never even considered Benefit's...perhaps I should though! I've been so tempted to purchase the Stila brand, but haven't taken the plunge yet b/c it's hard to tell from the color swatch online. The color palette you've created with the shadow, and lip butter, and tint is so so pretty! xx Marisa
