Sunday Shopping the Stash #51

I apologise in advance if this post becomes a little rambly and nonsensical but then again
you are all probably very used to that haha!
I have a kidney and throat infection so I am on medication that makes me very sleepy
and I am finding it more difficult than usual to stay focused and dare I say it awake!

Anyway I hope you are all well and let's get on with my make-up choices for the week ahead...


Garnier Oil Free BB Cream in Medium
My skin has been relatively good - minimal blemishes etc so I think it is time to make the most
of this and only use a BB cream for a base instead of a heavy foundation.
If you have oily skin and want a BB cream that offers great coverage then I do highly recommend this.

Sienna X Matte Bronzer
This is such a light bronzer that can look a little ashen on my skin tone but I have decided rather
than giving up on it that perhaps I could mix it with other cheek products and formulate a shade
that is more suited to me...well that is the plan anyway!

Collection (2000) Cream Blush & Highlighter in Peaches and Cream
I love the simplictity of this compact and both shades work well combined or used on their own,
I do have to admit that I prefer the blush to the highlight as I'm not a fan of cool toned highlighters
but in it's defence it is not gritty or over the top in terms of shimmer.


Fyrinnae Bastet and Biker Chic Loose Eyeshadows
I read on Fyrinnae will be launching their Halloween shades rather soon so with that in mind
I thought it was time to dig out some of the shades I already own and put them to use.
Bastet is a blackened gold shade that looks wonderful with a neutral palette and Biker Chic is the
deepest metallic navy blue that I love to wear as an eye liner.


Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Visual Kei
Recently I have been far more comfortable with a bright lip than I have with my once staple coral/nude
lip choices, the Fyrinnae lip lustres are brilliant for those who like almost matte lip colours
but dislike anything too drying. I do see myself purchasing this in the full size version very soon!

Sleek Truly Mattely Deeply in Soul
This shade on its own does nothing for me, it's stark and unflattering
but I figure it will have it uses especially if I use it to tone down other liquid lip products.

So that is this weeks choices, have you shopped your stash recently?
