Shopping The Stash 002

Things are hard on the old bank account. One too many extravagant purchases have left me unable to feed my beauty habit and rummaging through my collection to rediscover some treasures...

First up is Topshop's Macaroon lipstick. I'm a big lover of these, the colours, consistency and value for money make Topshop a favourite place to pick up some new lip shades. Macaroon is one I picked up and wore once, it sat in my stash and never saw the light of day again until the weekend where I rocked this baby, monochrome outfit and bright lip... Yes yes yes! A subtle hint of pink in this coral shade flatters the skin tone and would look beaut in summer on the sun kissed babes. This shall be one for the travel make-up bag.

Now onto the base, in my tinted moisturiser haze, I tossed foundation aside. But in my recent bad skin days and opting for something fuller coverage on a night out, I rediscovered my love for Mac Studio Sculpt. This gel formulation blended in with my holy grail brush (RT Buffing Brush... Like I needed to say) gives a flawless base and stays put all day. Usually day to day means I will wear a tinted moisturiser but for bad skin days and "days where I feel shit", I will opt for this base and instantly feel better about my skin.

There we have it, a combo I've been reaching for during vodka fuelled nights out and days where I want some extra va va voom in my routine. I may be shopping my stash but this also means my wishlist is growing longer. Oh well, pay day's on Thursday right?! ;)

  14. I really wanted to like those Topshop lipsticks, but they're way too drying for me. I now know that I have to avoid matte ones...
