Make Up Shake Up #10; This Week's Beauty Bag, Feat. Chanel, Clinique, Dr Jart, Maybelline, Max Factor


I have some lovely new products to break open this week and have a play with, so you can expect to see my favourites pop up in reviews over the next few weeks! If there's anything you're specifically interested in hearing about, just leave me a comment and let me know. Here's what will be featuring in this week's makeup bag:

EYES I am finally busting out my newest Illusion D'Ombre eyeshadow from Chanel (check out some of my other shades here). I picked up Illusoire in duty free recently and can't wait to finally wear it. After seven weeks of eyelash extensions I am sad to see them go but also excited about wearing mascara again - I will be using this Max Factor brightening product which is meant to bring out the colour of your eyes.


LIPS Illusoire is quite high impact with its shimmery purplish gray ways so I'm keeping lips quite neutral and trying out my new Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in 01 Curviest Caramel. The latest additions to the Chubby family, the Intense shades pack more of a pigment punch than the balmier originals - good news for those who like a more opaque lip look.

FACE I was sent this Dr Jart BB cream to trial and it sounds just the ticket for my dehydrated winter skin - it contains 50 percent water and no oil, and is intended to hydrate and help maintain the moisture levels in the skin. Watch this space! I plan to use it with my Maybelline Fit me concealer and powder; I've been really impressed with both products so far.

Blusher wise, my new favourite is the Glam Stars blusher from Artdeco and I think the peachy shades will compliment the caramel chubby stick quite nicely.

And there you have it - do you have any new beauty bits you're loving right now?  I could always do with just one more...!

You're the best, darling! Just so u know, your blog is my go-to source when in need of a beauty product in particular. My latest beauty buy was the Nars blush in bar. I always struggle to hide my eye bags, and haven't found the perfect product to help me...Muah!

I am not satisfied with Clinique. Once I tried a cleanser by Clinique...te result: clean but irritated skin. Not again.

I really want to try the clinique chubby stick. It's good to know they contain more pigment. I like that :) Thanks Emma!
