Weekly Wear….?

I know I keep saying I need to work on the titles and they keep being crap but it’s so frustrating! I would use song lyrics or something but seriously, the song that has been going through my head all day is the ‘Take my breath awayyyyy…’ one from Top Gun. Now it’ll be in your head all day.

Since moving in together my boyfriend has been initiated into my payday induced makeup purchasing frenzy on a few occasions. He doesn’t say anything out loud, just quietly judges which is DEFINITELY worse.

In a bid to convince him that I really do use allllll of these lipsticks and can’t possible chuck any out, in fact I NEED MORE I’ve decided to rotate my makeup every week, in a bid to get to grips with bits I’m not confident using and blitz through items I’m near finishing.


Base – Benefit’s That Gal primer (finished Avon Magix last week), Bourjois Healthy Mix 51 (not much left), Benefit High Beam (not much left), MAC Select Moisturecover NW20 (not much left), MAC Pro Longwear concealer NW15 (had for a while, ploughing through), Collection 2000 Perfect Wear concealer 2 Light (not much left)


Eye Primer – I was going to chuck out my UDPP as I thought it was finished. Cut it open. Now I feel foolish. The stuff kept coming out, I thought it would never end!



Eyes – Kiko eyeshadow 118, Stila Kitten (was broken so repressed), Revlon Grow Luscious (coming up to 3 months, needs to go soon), 17 Peep Show mascara (like this so far, using until it dries), Benefit Eye Bright pencil, Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar



Blusher – The Body Shop Cheek Colour 04 (replaced an old favourite but I got the wrong colour and have rarely used this), MAC Cremeblend So Sweet So Easy (new purchase, got this used on me when I got colour matched but it was sold out and I only just got it now along with Viva Glam Nicki), The Balm Frat Boy



Powders – HEMA 01 Terra Bronzing Powder (hit pan on Laguna so I’m keeping it for best, this is good for work as it’s not crazy pigmented), NYC Smooth Skin Loose Face Powder, Fyrinnae Fluff powder (NYC looks a little chalky on me but it’s HUGE and I need to use it. I love Fyrinnae so I use it pretty frequently)



Lips – Topshop Polish Smoothie, MAC Slimshine Gentle Simmer, MAC Frost Angel

So there you have it….do any of you do this kind of thing? I can’t go too wild with things like this because I have to wear sensible makeup to work but there’s so much I’d like to get through!

Have you tried any of these products?

The lighting is pretty crap so I didn’t do swatches but if you’d like to see anything in more detail then please comment and I’ll happily oblige!
