Shopping My Stash #7: The Christmas Face

So for this weeks shopping my stash post I cheated a wee bit. I've included a few things I always use but since it's almost Christmas I wanted to make sure what I've included is what I want on my face on Christmas day.

Ysl Touche Eclat, Liz Earle Brow Pencil, Garnier Tinted Roll On, DIY Brow Gel and Le Teint Touche Eclat are what I reach for everytime I do my make up.

Sephora Cream Lip Stain in 03 Strawberry Kiss: A bright, in your face, long lasting, matte red. You can see my post and swatches here. Pigmentation is fantastic, staying power is second to none and lets face it, it'll need to last all day while I'm shoveling down everything in sight. It's Christmas, rocking a red lip is the law.

Urban Decay Naked Palette & Primer Potion: My Naked palette has taken a back seat lately but I keep seeing FOTD posts and admiring the eye shadow they're wearing only to find out it's 'Half Baked'. Never would I pair a bright gold eye with red lips but red and gold just scream Christmas to me.

Collection Gel Liner: This isn't the best gel liner in the world but for the price, it's brilliant and perfect for defining the eyes. It does fade as the day goes on but I can deal with that.

Estee Lauder Lash Primer Plus & Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara: I adores the this mascara brush. It allows me to get right to the corners and as the name states, it's pretty good at lengthening. I don't know if it's just because I have sensitive eye's but I always feel as if bits crumble off after a while and end up in my eyes. Does anyone else has this problem? Lash Primer Plus just helps add that extra bit of length and thickens the look of my lashes.

MAC MSF in 'Soft & Gentle': Perfetc for helping my dull Winter skin look more alive without being over the top.

NARS 'Douceur': I can't fault this blush. It's the perfect shade and is great when you're wearing a strong eye or lip and don't want a bright shade on your cheeks.

This might be my last post before Christmas so I hope you all have a lovely time and are spolit rotten by Santa. :)

    1. I still want to try the Bobbi Brown Gel Liners but the collection one is great for the price. The brush that comes with it isn't great but I just use the RT liner brush.

    1. The mascara is great at lengthening but it flakes too much. Doubt I'll repurchase it. Soft & Gentle is lovely, I still haven't made a dent and I've had it for months now.
