Shopping my stash FOTD #1 - Featuring Sleek and MakeupGeek

Every once in a while I like to dig into my makeup stash and dig up something I haven't used in a while. Last weekend I re-discovered some old favourite Makeupgeek eyeshadows that were gathering dust, and a bright matte Sleek lipstick I used to wear a lot but then neglected for a while.

Makeup Look with some new Urban Decay and Bare Minerals purchases and a quick 29 week belly update

A few days after Urban Decay finally hit our shores I thought I'd go down to my local Mecca Maxima store and check it out. Blog research, you know. I definitely did not have a shopping list, and I sure as hell had no intention of ever getting the UD Naked 3 palette. But you know what, I got it, and it's awesome! I always assumed that the rose-gold tones in Naked 3 would not work with my complexion, that they might make my eyes look bloodshot or tired but in fact they're very versatile colours and surprisingly work well even with my dark features.

Besides the UD Naked 3 I also picked up another Bare Minerals lipstick, this time in the colour Fly High. I've become quite a fan of these lippies as they're super creamy, moisturising and surprisingly long lasting. Plus they're reasonably priced ($26) for the quality you get.

Here's a simple look that I did today wearing both new products.

Star of the Month: March

The Star of the Month posts are kind of like monthly favourites posts, but instead of posting about a variety of products (because my favourites don't change often), I only post about 1 item which has been a stand out for me that month.

For this month the Star of the Month has to be the Australis Contouring & Highlighting Kit, and I'm sure you can tell by the ratty condition of the palette how much use it's been getting from me lately. The middle highlight shade is fabulous at brightening my under eye area, and the middle contour shade is the perfect colour for me to fake cheekbones with. And let's face it, with this pregnancy I've put on 10kgs already so I need all the help I can get to fake cheekbones!

When they first released this palette it sold out so quickly from Priceline, but they're back in stock now, and well worth the $16.95 price tag.

HERE is my original review where you can see swatches.

What has been your favourite product for March?
