FOTD: Shopping the stash & short reviews

It's so easy to get caught in a makeup rut and forget about certain products. I went through my makeup collection today and picked some products I haven't been using in a while.


For my face I used Missha BB cream in no.21, I was using it a lot in summer time, it has a nice coverage, it applies smoothly and also contains SPF 42. For under eye circles I used my all time favourite concealer (absolutely not in "shop the stash" category) Bourjois Healthy mix concealer in colour 52 medium radiance. I set my face with Bella Pierre Mineral foundation in MF002 Ivory, it contains teeny tiny shimmer, but once applied it doesn't really show. For my cheeks I used e.l.f Contouring Blush & Bronzing powder, I used only blush. It's orange-y blush with shimmer and it looks absolutely fabulous on the cheeks. Sorry, I've been neglecting you!


For my eyes I used Too Faced Shadow insurance primer. It's not really in "shop your stash" category, but I'm trying it with different shadows, I think it creases on me with some eyeshadows. Anyone else having the same problem? On my lids I used Bourjois Smoky eyes trio palette in 02 or baroque, it's a nice palette with three shimmery shadows: light gold yellow-ish colour, brown-ish gold and dark brown with olive undertones. Shadows are soft and quite pigmented. Then I lined my eyes with Essence Gel eyeliner in 01 Midnight in Paris. I have it for about a year now and it hasn't dried up, it's awesome. For mascara I used my old trusty Artdeco All in one, you can win it in my giveaway (here). For eyebrows I used another product I use most of the time: Catrice Absolute eye colour in 350 Starlight Expresso.

This picture was taken with flashlight.


For my lips I used Catrice Ultimate Colour in 050 Princess Peach, since it was too light I dabbed some Catrice Ultimate Colour in 100 Lobster Love. They are super creamy and pigmented, I love Catrice lipsticks. I actually really like mixing different lipstick together, so I get an unique colour. Anyone else doing the same? :)
 

Lightning these days is horrible. It's so hard to be a beauty blogger in winter time, do you agree?

Do you like this kind of posts: fotd and short reviews together? Or do you prefer just fotd in one post and reviews in others? Let me know.

Hope you're having a lovely Monday,
