Weekly Make Up Basket #2

It was super fun this last week to create a weekly make up basket to rotate somethings in my collection.  I definitely found some things I love in last weeks make up basket - look for a review on the ELF Personal Blend Foundation & the ELF Essential Lipsticks.  I also fell back in love with the Almay Trio & realized that the Wet n Wild Walking the Red Carpet palette isn't that terrible (still not great, but not too terrible!)  This week I did a lot of thinking when I chose things & next week I won't.  I'm going to grab & go.  Pretty much my make up is organized by categories so I'm going to just grab two or three things from each drawer.  So here we go, this weeks basket:
Lot's of eye stuff this week (lots of everything this week).  The first is a palette from Black Radiance in Downtown Browns.  I believe that both Wet n Wild & Black Radiance are owned by they same company.  I do like a lot of Black Radiance eyeshadow but have yet to try their other products.  Their lipsticks always seem so tempting.  Next, I depoted nearly all of my Wet n Wild eyeshadows & these are a few in an Elf custom compact.  The three on the right are from the Comfort Zone palette, the purple-ish one on the left is from the Silent Treatment trio, & the top one is from the limited edition trio in Enlisting for Beauty.  Final eyeshadow is a clearanced Gilded Bronze single from L'Oreal.  Going to try to use some of my Wet n Wild Shimmer Eyeshadow Primer this week too.
I've been loving the shimmery blushes in my collection & last week's basket got me back into them.  This week I'm going to go back to the Balm's Hot Mama blush (reminds me of NARS Orgasm, am I the only one?), trying the NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in 001 Spring Petals (I believe this is/was limited edition from their new Spring line but it doesn't say limited edition), and the Physicians Formula Happy Booster in Natural.  Originally I bought the Happy Booster in Natural thinking it was a highlight someone was talking about but it's actually a true pink color with a little bit of a sheen.
Even though I'm doing shimmery blush if ever I stray from those this week, I want to use my favorite Wet n Wilde Shimmer Palette is Rose Champagne Glow.  I also want to get some use out of the ELF Baked Highlight in Moonlight Pearl.  This was in a products I regret buying video I have yet to upload!  Now I'm thinking I won't do that because I'm trying to give some products another chance!
Two things that are solely face related, or like base face related - a concealer & a primer.  The concealer is from the Revlon PhotoReady line.  I got this attached to a compact make up from Big Lots for $5.  I bought a ton of them in all the shades!  This is the shade medium deep and I want to try some cream contouring again this week.  The primer is a sample from BirchBox and it's from Grand Central Beauty.  It says it's supposed to work as a filler & primer, especially under eyes.  Not sure what that really means but I'm going to give it a shot.  I think I'm going to cancel my BirchBox subscription actually.
Three lip products this month - a crayon type lip color from Be a Bombshell in Shameless.  It's a bright mauve color that leans more natural if you catch my drift.  It's not too bright but not too dark.  It's a good spring color.  Two lip glosses - Revlon Super Lustrous in Super Natural & a small Elf one from the Ursula palette in the 2013 Halloween collections.  Pretty much just want to use that little one up.  They are so small you'd think they'd use up quickly!
So that's it for this week!  I am loving that I'm finding things to do reviews on by rotating my stash regularly.  If you ever see something you want to know more about let me know because I'd love to do a review.

Have a good week!

xoxo, Moe
