Shop My Stash: October

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage – This is probably my all time favourite lipstick, and I dug it out of my collection to wear when I went clubbing with friends earlier in the month. It’s a hot pink (blue toned) shade with amazing lasting power and is ideal for a night out on the town.

Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Eggplant – I have green eyes so if the purple option of any kind of eye liner is available I usually try and pick it up. This was sent to me by Maybelline in a care package a little while ago and I’ve just started using it frequently and am in love with it (just a quiet little FYI: I find the formula of the Maybelline gel eyeliners to be much better than the Bobbi Brown ones). I plan on posting a full review soon.

The Body Shop Born Lippy in Raspberry – I don’t tend to wear a lot of makeup on the weekend so when I want an easy lip product that I can grab on the go, I reach for this. I seemed to use this a lot more than usual during October, which I think might be due to the fact that I finished up my MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner.

Revlon Lip Butter in Sweet Tart – I really love this product although I rarely use it due to the large amount of lip products I have in my collection (and the fact that I’m focusing on using up two particular products at the moment because of my Project 100 Pan). It gives a nice little pop of colour to the lips when I’m having an otherwise lazy makeup day.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Porcelain Pink – This is my favourite cheek colour to wear if I’m going to be wearing a bright lip shade because it gives a very slight flush to the cheeks but also adds a bit of a bronze glow to the skin.
