Weekly Makeup Basket! January Week One

So my weekly makeup baskets are making a return of sorts.  I may do these every week, or every other week.  Basically I’m restricting myself to 3 videos/blogposts a week, so if I have a video I would rather record, it will take priority over a makeup basket post!

So let’s get into the basket!

Weekly Makeup Basket
Let’s start on the bases. For face primer I have two, Smashbox Original primer and Clarins smoothing primer, really like both of these and wanted to include them.  I’ve two liquid foundations, Revlon Colorstay and L’Oreal Nude Magique.  I’m trying to use up the Revlon foundation, I’ve discovered it tends to clog my skin a wee bit – it’s part of my Project 10 Pan.  The L’Oreal foundation is great for light coverage and at the minute my skin is looking good, so less coverage needed – although this is a tad dark, so I’m not sure if I’ll use it too much.  For concealer I’m using Seventeen’s Phwoarr Paint, great for everything, I’ve done a review here. I’m also using my YSL Touche Eclat as an under-eye highlight.   I’m still using up my elf Tone Correcting Powder in cool.For Blush, I have NARS Orgasm, Benefit Rockateur, mac Dollymix, bareMinerals Glee and Illamasqua cream blush in Crush.  These blushes should cover my bases for the week!  I enjoy using them all and a few of them need more love.   While we’re on cheeks, I have three highlighters.  Watts Up from Benefit, Elizabeth Arden’s Rose Illuminator and a sample of Smashbox’s all over liquid highlighter.  All of these are in dire need of use, is into the basket they go!

Let’s move onto eyes.  For primer I’m using up an Urban Decay eyelid primer.  I’ve included two palettes from Urban Decay, Naked Basics and Naked 3. Love both of these and want to play more with Naked 3.  I’ve added 17 Barely There trio, I’m still trying to use up the brown shade that is left in an otherwise empty trio!  I’ve a few eyeliners this week, Nude and Taupe from the Rimmel Scandaleyes range and Maybelline long lasting gel liner.  For mascara I’m testing out Maybelline Rocket Volume and finishing up Benefit bad Gal in Plum.  For my eyebrows I’ve a sample from Sigma called Scarlett, it does what it says on the box.

We’re almost there!  Lip products! From Urban Decay I have Rush (old packaging), Rimmel Apocalips in Across the Universe, Maxfactor Mulberry, Illamasqua Encounter (matte) and Benefit I tink I love you. I’ve also included Rimmel Kate lipstick in 107 – I’ve just forgotten to include it in the picture.

So that’s it for this week!  I’ve done a few swatches in my video, so if you fancy a closer look at any of these products you can check out my video below.
