The Daily Tray 02

My daily tray has been shaken up and as promised I have taken a few snaps to keep you up to date with the products I’ll be focusing on now. Coral and pink are the main trends right now, with my blush and lip obsession becoming very apparent as I struggled to whittle down my choices. I’m really enjoying diving into my stash to enjoy some of my beautiful but unloved products, and this is what I’ll be reaching for.
My regular Rimmel foundation holds its ground, but is joined by my Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream* which has great coverage and is quick and easy to apply – perfect for hot days! I’ve kept my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in there for dark circles, and my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder is kept in my purse for touch ups throughout the day. I didn’t realise how many Maybelline products I love until I took this shot!
A plethora of lip options, about which I am simultaneously elated and ashamed…Pink lips will be thanks to Maybelline Color Whisper in Mad for Magenta* and Petal Rebel*, with my gloss option being the Pretty in Punk Sportsgirl liquid lip colour. Coral lips will be a common sight too, with essence 24 Just Georgeous (yes, George, just like Pappa Bovary!) and Groupie at Heart being staples over the top of Maybelline Peach Blossom Color Bloom. I also threw in MAC Kiss & Don’t Tell from the Archie’s collection, and my Revlon Pango Peach for no-brainer lip days, with my Colette Hayman Coconut lip balm to keep in my bag (EOS eat your heart out!)
Eyes will of course be centred around Urban Decay Naked 3 palette which arrived last week (hurrah!) and I’ve been absolutely loving the stunning shades inside! I still have Dior Fairy Golds out because I am yet to hit pan, and I need to feel that pan rush – fellow beauty lovers, you know what I’m talking about, right?! Too Faced Shadow Insurance and TheBalm Put a Lid on It* are my primers, and the essence Hot Chocolate eyeliner will always be in the daily tray for me – a firm favourite! The essence Ticket to Paradise cream eyeshadow in 01 Dive With Me to the Island will be my minty kick now, and Revlon Lash Potion my lash-coater of choice.

Cheeks are my weakness, okay? (no, not those cheeks!) Savvy Cheek Balms in Blissful Blush and Heavenly Highlight join my YSL Fuschia Temptation in the cream blush stakes, along with Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Flushed and Coral Reef. My damn NYX Peach is still kicking around and joins MAC Prom Princess from the Archie’s Girls collection as my powder shades for the time being.
Phew, this lot should keep my entertained while I wait for the Dior Trianon collection to hit the counters. What makeup are you playing around with at the moment?

  1. Love those Colour Whispers :) x

  2. Wow, you've really hit pan on that NYX bad boy! I totally get you with pan rush, I'm currently trying to use up some items :)

  3. Yay, your Naked 3 palette arrived! Still thinking about it myself, haha. I dunno, I haven't been too creative lately. I switched in a darker, more berry blush (MAC Stratus) and have been otherwise looking for inspiration to strike!

  4. love this daily tray!! So pretty and all of your things are in one place!

  5. Ahhh so organised & so many pretty things :) I am working on sticking to a 'daily tray' style setup for my everyday work face, so far so good !

  6. Pan rush defnitely exists! I get a rush then worry about finishing the product. Silly me!

  7. So many pretty things :) And how Im lusting for that Naked 3 palette :) Wanted to order it but it did not work with out credit cards :(

  8. I now have new goodies to play with from Japan (including that Trianon eyeshadow palette) as well as my Naked 3 palette, which arrived the day before I left. Can't wait!
