With every season change I like to switch the makeup bag up a bit, but rather than having a mad Boots basket dash straight away it's always good to shop the stash first *pats self on back* You'd be surprised at how many gems you have hidden away under piles of long lost lip glosses and items bought when you were feeling a touch too brave and now reserve only for Halloween (looking at you black/purple lipstick I bought on a hangover) and here is what I rediscovered last week-
Maybelline Colour Tattoo in 'Pink Gold' | I have what can only be described as an undying love for the Colour Tattoo in 'on and on bronze' so I've no idea why this one got so neglected. It's an extremely pretty cream shadow in a light rose/berry tone which will truly come into it's own now Autumn has hit. I envisage it layered with MAC cranberry in the crease on Christmas day or blended around the eye for an every day hint of plumy prettiness.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | If you've been with the Boutique since the start then you'll know how much I used to adore this, but then the likes of Mille Mac got to me and I fended off anything containing the word 'matte' with a clove of garlic and a stake. However, my new London life involves ALOT of tubes and running around and 12 hour days so I've turned back to this to keep everything on the face in place for a perfect price.
Benefit Hydra-smooth Lipstick in 'Fling Thing' | I actually got this back in the Spring (good one meg) so haven't given it much love until now. Purple toned berry shades can be hard to wear in the day but this has a very flattering pink undertone so it's a little less vampire and a lot more wearable. The moistorising, slightly glossy formula also means you can press it on for full effect or pat onto the lips for a quick blackcurrant flush.
Have you shopped your stash lately?
