Sunday Snapshot ... March's Makeup

Sunday, 3 March 2013

So there comes a time in the month for me (NO not that one haha) but when I decide to shake up what I am using and rotate the products in my makeup collection so they all have their own chance to shine. I am not one for changing makeup due to seasons, if I want to wear a plum lip in summer then I will, but I do like to rescue the odd blusher from the depths of my drawers so they all see the light of day.

This month I have chosen a random selection of products, some new, to grace the "everyday makeup" box that I grab in the mornings. I will probably keep mixing it up throughout the month, I'm not going to use the rose gold blush everyday but these are the products that will be considered first.

For bases this month I am going to try and use up the last of the Vivo Primer* I have had this for a while and I'm still not really sure what I think about it so in a conscious effort to condense my collection it will be used up. I fell in LOVE with the Revlon Photoready foundation around a year or so ago and I still love it now. I have had this bottle for a while now (surprise surprise!) so I think it's best that I try and use it up.

Eyemakeup is taking a bit of a pink twist this month. I've seen a few cranberry/pinkey eye looks going on and I love it. It's something that I have always stayed away from but since buying the Maybeline Colour Tattoo in Pink Champagne I have been embracing it. My ELF palette comes in really handy as there are some lovely colours in it, however since I have been stuck in the rut of nude eye looks these types of palettes have been so neglected, well now they are having their chance to shine. For mascara this month I thought I would try the new Rocket Mascara by Maybeliene. I had an eye infection, well I think a reaction to a concelear, in January so I binned everything and this was the mascara I bought to try first. It's alright, waterproof so a nightmare to get off. It does the job though, but I think I want to try the Benefit They're Real, what are you thoughts on that?

My cheeks this month will take a Sleek twist, the Sleek Contour Kit was something that I went crazy about but then other bronzers came into my life and, like everything else, it has been forgotten. Well my beloved Contour Kit we are reunited once more. The Sleek Rose Gold Blush was something that I bought on a whim when I actually saw it in stock. Everybody was raving about it, I'm sure you all remember, so now after months of it being sat there it's going to be used.

What is in your makeup bag this month?




  1. Ah I'm the same with foundation - I'm currently TRYING to use up my mac make up that I've had for so, so long.

    I think I'm gonna follow suit and dig out some eyeshadows and that - Want to try a Cranberry look too, but am too scared haha! x

  2. The Maybelline Rocket is like the baby sister of the Benefit they're real - not quite so volumising but still quite good - I adore both :)


  3. i recently invested in a clarins foundation, the evermatte one :)
    i'm also loving my bourjois felt liner,
    porefessional, and my girl meets pearl highlighter! :D
    Rosie xo
    A Pocketful of Rosie

  4. I really need to change up my make up every so often, I get so bored with it!

  5. I need to start rotating my make-up, I've got so much of it but always use the same things all the time.
    I really want to Try Benefit They're Real too x

  6. It's so easy to get into a make-up rut, I need to have a look in my drawers and change my everyday look up a wee bit! xx
