Back in October, I started my Shop My Stash series. Which is basically my way of actually using the products that I spend my money on. My first edit was a great success, and I discovered a few gems. But it’s now time to do my first swap and introduce some new products into my routine.
Now, because we are heading into summer, this edit is going to be much smaller and simpler than my October/November edit. With more of a focus on lighter coverage and cream products. I have also kept one product from my previous edit (the Milk Hydro Grip primer). As it’s probably the only reason my makeup stays on my face during the summer months. Let’s get into what I’m using this season!
As I mentioned before, my focus for the next little while is going to be on lighter coverage products. Which is why I immediately picked out the ULTRA VIOLETTE DREAM SCREEN TINTED VEIL – $55.00 and the SUMMER FRIDAY’S SHEER SKIN TINT – $63.00. Both of these have a lot of hype online and I’m super excited to play with them. And yes, I will be reviewing them.
For concealing, I also went with two options. Namely the KOSAS REVEALER CONCEALER – $42.00 and the KVD BEAUTY GOOD APPLE CONCEALER – $42.00. The Kosas is already a beloved favourite. But the KVD is one that I’ve had for a while but haven’t used. And knowing that the KVD is pretty high coverage could be good for those occasions where my skin needs a little bit of help.
For setting the concealer under my eyes, I went with another Kosas product. The KOSAS CLOUD SET SETTING POWDER – $51.00. This one has a baked formula and it’s super finely milled. For the rest of my face, I turned to an old fave. The classic AUSTRALIS FRESH & FLAWLESS POWDER FOUNDATION – $15.95. I picked this one because it also helps provide some coverage for those times where I need it.
Earlier in November, I was sent a few new cream goodies from AUSTRALIS. And naturally, some of them ended up in this season’s edit for me to test out. I chose the AUSTRALIS DEWY & DARING CREAM BRONZER in RIDE OR DIE – $14.95* as my bronzer. This bronzer is the deeper of the two and good for summer. I also picked out two shades of the AUSTRALIS DEWY & DARING CREAM BLUSH – $14.95* to play with. The peachy shade is Side Chick, and the more rosy neutral shade is Girl Next Door. Both of these are very easy colours to wear and perfect for any occasion.
Finally, the mascara. And we are sticking with the drugstore for this season’s choices. I picked out the ESSENCE ANOTHER VOLUME MASCARA… JUST BETTER – $7.00* and the MAYBELLINE COLOSSAL MASCARA – $25.99. I have quite a few Essence mascaras kicking around, and I want to see if there is more than one that I actually like. As for the Maybelline, I got this in a Bellabox a few months back. And it’s one that I’ve never tried before. So, yeah, reviews for both coming soon!
And that is a wrap on my Summer edit! I hope this inspires you to do something similar with your collection. Which products are you excited to hear more about. Let me know in the comments.
Cheers and love
