Make Up Shake Up! Shopping my stash #5, with Clinique, Eyeko, ARTDECO, Isadora, Clarins!



Here we are with the 5th instalment of the Make Up Shake Up series, where each week I have a rummage through my collection and put together the things I'll be using that week. The idea is that I'll use more of the pieces that I own and hopefully, won't be as tempted to continually buy more. It should also stop me falling into a pattern, where I just use the same handful of products again and again.  Here's what's in this week's bag.



EYES: I had completely forgotten about this little Clarins kit - it's part of the Barocco collection that was released a couple of years ago. I got it for Christmas and fell completely in love - I don't use the black shadow but the gold and the marbled bronze/gold shade are so pretty. I will pair them with a new brown eyeliner I was sent by Isadora, and this Eyeko Skinny Mascara I reviewed for beaut.ie.

LIPS:  L'Oreal's Rouge Caresse in Nude Ingenue is a really sheer glossy nude that, like all the lipsticks in this line (check out the others in my collection here), feels lovely and balmy on the lips. Love it.

CHEEKS: This ARTDECO blusher is a work of art. I was sent it earlier this spring as part of the brand's Marrakesh Sunset collection - the fuchsia, coral and rosewood shades combine to create a soft, pretty pink.

FACE: I really wanted to just pop my Dior BB cream into this week's make up bag again. It's the only thing I've worn lately that doesn't cling to the little dry patches that have sprung up on my face. But that would defeat the purpose of this series and so I rummaged through my bases and rediscovered Clinique's BB Cream. Hopefully this will also do the trick. Instead of powder I plan on using some oil absorbing sheets I picked up by Kleenex - and I'll be using Soap and Glory's Trick and Treatment under my eyes, to finish things off.

Have you tried any of this little lot? Let me know how you got on!

Mary Tee said...

Ooh, I should really start doing this so I don't keep using the same products all the time and actually use the majority of my makeup collection LOL! Plus might stop the urge to buy yet another pinky nude lipstick, when I realise how many I own LOL!

Coco said...

I'd like to try trick and treatment (I haven't found the ideal concealer yet) plus Clinique Bb cream. I always like your choice of colours to match. I love your posts on makeup, stay tuned 'cause I'm planning on reviewing some products myself.Have a nice week dear Emma :-)

I haven't tried any of these... I would perhaps consider the L'Oreal lipstick.

Hi Andrea I have tried the L'Oreal one and like it but I need more coverage at the moment and also more hydration as my skin is quite dry. Will check out your site!

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

The L'Oreal color looks just beautiful and I'm glad you describe it as being glossy and nice on the lips--I'm looking for some additons to my YSL lipstick addiction, which is getting a bit pricey.

Emma said...

I'm really interested to try out the eyeko mascaras, although they are a bit pricey! That art deco blush looks amazing! I'm delighted to see that this shop my stash is going well, I've being doing it more too! Use more, buy less!
