Make Up Shake Up! Shopping my stash #7 - plus, does anyone want to do an international makeup swap?!?

Week 7 of the Make Up Shake Up Series and this one's a good 'un, if I do say so myself! There are a few bits and bobs in this week's make up bag that I'm really looking forward to using. Read on to see what I'm planning on wearing this week.

EYES: I'm excited to play about with the MAC palette that I showed you here; it's full of smokey purples and greys and while the bottom tier is quite dark, I think the three shadows in the top tier will take me through the working week with ease.

On my brows I will be using a new brow palette I'm testing out so I'll tell you more about that at a later date.

LIPS: Keeping with the purple theme, I'll be teaming the shadows with this Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush Begun, which I picked up last week. I know, I know - the whole point of this series is to stop me buying more make up, but I popped into Superdrug to repurchase my favourite concealer, and I couldn't resist.  These are retailing for around €11 at Boots but in SD they're just €7.45 - so I was practically saving money. Right?!  

CHEEKS: I'll be using MAC's Blushcreme in Brit Wit (I showed you that here, as well) and applying it with my MAC 188 brush. I used to use it for foundation - you can read my review of it here - but I have a few other brushes now that I prefer, so I hope I've found another use for it.

FACE: As long as I'm not too flaky (an unfortunate side effect of this new skincare routine) I'll be using the new Urban Decay foundation, Naked Skin, and applying it with the UD Good Karma Optical Blurring brush. If it clings to any wee dry patches I'll switch back to my trusty Dior BB cream.
I've also restocked my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer which is just €4.95 but is absolutely brilliant. If you have a Superdrug near you, you should definitely try it out. And if you live somewhere that doesn't have a Superdrug, but you'd like to try this and some other drugstore or pharmacy products, just let me know  - I would really love to do an international swap!
What do you think of this week's selection? If you've tried any of it, let me know how you got on!
