The Forgotten Toys

Once I find myself in a comfortable routine, whether it be with makeup or jewelry, I tend to just stick to it. While this can be convenient, especially when you find yourself with only ten minutes to spare (me on Friday, not ideal), it can also get a bit tired and boring. So last week I decided to shop the beauty stash and unearthed one or two things I've neglected a bit lately.


Mac Eyeshadows in Woodwinked and Trax Given that I seem to wear All That Glitters religiously it's hardly surprising that I'd forgotten about these colours. I wore Woodwinked a lot last Summer though. It's a softer gold and looks less foiled and metallic which I like. This is great on its own or layered with sheer glitter over the top. Trax is a colour I actually purchased at a Sephora in France. It's quite a glittery shade in the pan but on the lids it has more of a matte finish. This shade is perhaps more Wintery but it would look nice blended out with other colours.

Stila Convertible Colour in Gerbera, available here. When I purchased this earlier in the year I wore it virtually every day for about a month and then forgot about it. This coral pink looks frightening in the container but once it's blended out it looks very natural. You can also use these as a lip colour.

Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate On a daily basis I tend to reach for my Jasmine lip butter. It's one of the first things I see in my drawers and also I love the scent. Now that Summer is fast approaching this one will probably make its way into my bag a lot more as I reach for sheerer lip products out of convenience. Not only does this add a pop of colour but it also keeps your lips hydrated and chap-free.

Mac Lipsticks in Show Orchid and Lickable These colours are both usually reserved for special occasions and really they deserve to be worn more because they are both so pretty, *taps wrist*. Both these pinks are also really long lasting as well and if you're ever after a pink lipstick, Mac do really gorgeous ones.

Smashbox High Definition Concealer in Light There's no real reason as to why this concealer hasn't been used a lot recently other than the fact that this shade has yellow-undertones so sometimes it can look a bit orange on my face. Now that it's getting closer to Summer this is a better match for my skintone so I've been wearing it a lot lately. This is best applied with a small detailer brush and it blends really easily. Smashbox have concealers that are targeted towards more porcelain complexions so if you're after a new one, then you should go check out theirs.
