Second Weekly Makeup Basket for January!

Second basket of the month, quite proud of myself!  As you can see I have quite a few items this week…I clearly got excited while going through my stash (for another post coming up this week).  So I’ve included various products that I wanted to try out looks with.
Weekly Makeup Basket

Face Products

Lets go left to right.  First up face primers.  I’m including my Smashbox original primer and Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Primer.  I’m a tad in love with these two together.  For foundations, bareMinerals matte foundation in Fair, the L’Oreal foundation from last week was a tad too dark for me, so rarely used.  I’m keeping in my Revlon Colorstay foundation, it’s almost finished!   For concealers I’m using 17 Stay time concealer, I use this mainly for under my eyes, and Well Rested, again for under my eyes but with the bareMinerals foundation.  I have the tiniest amount of a sample all over face radiance from Smashbox that I like to mix with the Revlon foundation.  To set my face I am still plugging away at the elf Tone Correcting powder.

Now for Eyes!

I have a number of colourful bases this week.  From NYX a Jumbo pencil in Sparkly Nude, from Collection a pencil in Vanilla Sky, I’ve included the Original primer potion from Urban Decay alongside a primer potion in Greed.  I’ve popped in two cream shadows from the 17 Wild collection, Wild Nude and Wild Purple.  Finally Maybelline’s Light in Purple Color tattoo in included.  The final cream shadow is Wise from Lush.  Now for powder eyeshadows! I’ve included the Urban Decay Basics palette, it’s my favourite companion palette, also from Urban Decay, I have included the Dangerous eyeshadow palette, it has lovely smokey colours that I want to play with more.  I have almost finishd the brown shade from the 17 Barely There trio.  Two loose eyeshadow pigments from bareMinerals in Greenhouse and Violetta and a Ready duo The Scenic Route.  From 17 I’ve Gold Emerald single shadow and from No7 Wheatsheaf.   For my eyebrows I’m still working my way through my Sigma sample in Scarlett.  My mascara this week is Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night mascara in brown/black.   I’ve only three eyeliner pencils this week.  Rimmel Scandeleyes in Nude and Taupe and form Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in 1999.


I only have four blushes this week (considering my eye choices, I thought this was really constrained!).  From Soap & Glory Love at First Blush, which has a bit of shimmer to it, so no highlighter needed. From Sleek I’ve included Pomegranate, love this, thought it would go well with some of the greener looks.  A cream blush from Stila in Rose and a liquid blush from Benefit in Benetint.

Finally Lip Products

I have a lipstick in Ripe Rose from elf, a lip butter from Revlon in Candy Apple.  From Cien a lipstick in Rosewood, Too Faced lipstick in Drop Dead Red,  L’Oreal Color Riche Serum lipstick in Radiant Plum, Illamasqua matte lipstick in Encounter.  L’Oreal Glam Shine lip gloss in Magnetic Nude Glow, from Collection I have a Cream Puff in Fairy Cake which is a matte finish and Revlon lip butter in Honey.  Finally form Barry M PH adjusting lipstick tmlp.

So that is it for all the products in my weekly basket!  If you’d like a closer look at these products you can check out the video below
