As many of you I started a monthly makeup basket last month for the first time, and now that we are in October, I thought I would share with you how the makeup basket worked for me. (or whether it worked for me at all)
Starting with the face products. I had already mentioned that my foundation, concealer and compact powder wouldn't change because I don't own multiple of those. I really want to use up the Deborah Milano compact before I start the next one. I have a Colorbar one waiting to be used and I have a finishing powder from Kryolan waiting to be opened.
In terms of the blushes, I reached for all the three blushes quite a bit. I loved the MUA cream blush for the days when I wanted a dewy look, and some days I would layer the NYX blush on top. The Lakme Blush was my contour for some days and during navrathri I used it a lot!,
Next we'll look at the lip products. I loved the Palladio Lipstick and the Streetwear lipstick in Pink Persuasion. I found myself reaching for these two again and again. I think I used the Rimmel Apocalips maybe once and that's it. The Lakme Poptint was not used as much as I would liked to.
The eye makeup products. Well this was pretty interesting actually.
The Rimmerl eyebrow pencil was the only eyebrow product in my basket so I used it most days. The rest of the days I used the MAC eyeshadow in Dark edge.
Here are things I never reached for at all!!
1) Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow stick in Purple Paranoia
2) Bourjois Kohl and Contour in Prune
3) Avon Glimemrstick in flashy copper.
4) Lakme eyeconic kajal.
I did use the NYX eye pencil in blue once in a while. But I found that my favourite look was just kajal and mascara. I preferred the Max Factor Mascara to the Lakme one.
The Makeup Revolution London Redemption Palette Iconic 3 was extensively used during Navrathri.
The Maybelline gel liner, well I loved using it, but when I am in a hurry, I never reached for it. I really missed having a liquid liner for the days when I was in a rush.
Here are some looks I put together with this makeup basket.
