The Monday MakeUp Mix-Up! #8

Week 8 already! The second half of this year has flow past at about the speed of the concord or a space shuttle, are they faster? Who knows?! But it is time to share with you the 5 products that have been randomly picked out of my stash to use this week! If you're new to my blog the aim of this feature is to get use out of all my make-up and challenge myself with my make-up, so expect to see a FOTD towards the end of the week using this all! 

BeautyUK Eyeshadow & Eyeliner Palette - Smoke Screen
(£3.99, Superdrug & BeautyUK's Website)
I'd actually forgotten about this palette - but I wish I hadn't as for one this has a deep grey gel liner. Very unusual at this price point. Although no the greatest quality. The eyeshadows however are really nice and great for a nice smoky eye - and not crazy coloured making my life easier for the FOTD!

Venomous Cosmetics Loose Shadow - Not so Blue Over You 
When I pulled this out I remember thinking that it was a colour that I had loved when I swatched it for the blog. The life of a beauty blogger doesn't leave masses of time to dwell on pretty colours though unfortunately. But I was right, this is a stunner, it's such a shame it's discontinued. A beautiful shimmery violet shade, I'm going to have fun playing with it! 

ELF Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil - Plum Passion
(£1.50, ELF's Website)
I'll be honest, these eyeliners from ELF aren't really a favourite of mine. But it is a nice colour, so I'm sure I can get it out to play this week and who knows, maybe I'll find a new favourite. Although I'm thinking it's unlikely! 

Topshop Cream Blush - Butterscotch
(£6, Topshop)
It's been forever since I've had a nosey around the Topshop make-up stands, overdue some may say! This blush is actually a highlight shade really, and best applied with a small stipple blush or you're fingers. It does look on the darker side, but if I remember correctly it applies fine on my skin! 

Eyeko London Lips Lipgloss - Portobello 
I didn't do too well picking items that were actually available to buy this week did I. I said before if this bugs you guys I'll discard (put back) dicontinued products in future and redip in the stash for something available! I never got a chance to review these glosses though as they discontinued about 2 weeks after I bought 3! But they are nice and glossy, infact very glossy! 

I'm seeing a purple smokey look this week, or we could go lilac and throw some mint green in there. I think it probably depends on how I'm feeling come Friday. Anyway, I'm rambling! Thanks for stopping by and I'll speak to you again soon, Hannah

  1. The Topshop blush and Eyeko lipgloss are such lovely neutral shades, I need some more of those in my life! I love the grey shade in the BeautyUK palette, it's such a lovely gunmetal colour xx
