In my Makeup Bag This Week & a music award!

Time for another edition of "In my Makeup Bag this Week"!

Now, I know that spring is on everyone's mind and that you're all probably adjusting your makeup and wardrobe collections accordingly, but the weather here lately feels 100% autumn-like and I can only think of mauves, taupes and berry shades when I'm getting ready on a day-to-day basis. 
Seems like pastels and brights can wait a little while longer...


So, my selection as of lately consists of: Rouge Bunny Rouge e/s in Solstice Halcyon (swatched here), Clinique "Black Honey" cream liner, MAC "Fascinating" eye kohl (yes, again: my eye makeup feels weird without it), MAC "Viva Glam VI" lipglass, Clinique "Black Honey lipstick" (see a pattern here?), and lastly, MAC Stark Naked blush.

All very wintery still, but hey ho.

And now for the fun part of the post (hopefully, otherwise I should change the title into "snoozefest all around"), a cute little award/tag! :)

Three lovely girls, awarded me with the "I love music and I love your blog" award: Lydia of Made of Stars, Sofia of Beauty In Crisis and Depi of Cute&GirlyDMS. Thank you SO much for this award lovely girlies and thank you for the opportunity to share some of my favourite songs with you!


Now, choosing among my favourite songs is as hard as writing facts about myself, so I'll just pick my current top 5:

1. Reznor & Ross - Immigrant Song

2. Jane's Addiction - Underground

3. Awolnation - Sail

4. Massive Attack - Paradise Circus (Zeds Dead Remix)

5. Björk - Army of Me


The 10 blogs that I'm giving this award to, are, in turn: 
Me, my blush and I (Athina's blog's new name!)
Battered Couture (the award is a sad excuse, any reason for a 5 song list would do - that doesn't mean I still don't love your blog)

Ok, that's all for now folks! 

Any winter picks still lurking in your makeup bags? What's your favourite song at the moment? Hit me!

  1. LOVE YOUR PICKS! I'm planning on doing it asap as it's such a fun post to make, and I love reading it to broaden my musical horizons ;P!

    I don't particularly have a favourite song it's just that I'm leaning towards more trip-hop/dub oriented music atm!!! xxx

    1. @fashion written with a lipstick: Thank you sweetie! Happy that you enjoyed it (I know my picks aren't to everyone's taste)! Apparently, it seems like I'm a bit into dubstep myself lately, lol, totally unplanned though! xx

  2. Beautiful colours. I tend towards the same to be honest, no matter what the weather! I will allow myself to be more adventurous when summer is properly here xx

    1. @underthewillowtrees: I know exactly where you're coming from, I'm known for not straying away from what works for me and these are universally flattering shades, that work on all occasions! I do try and mix it up though, hopefully I'll have discovered sth new by summertime! :) x

    1. @Evi: I had to, I had tried a mini sample of the l/s and despite it looking so scary at first, I ended up really enjoying it, I love that you can control how intense it looks!
      As for music, 1 hr per day is mandatory, doctors orders! ;) Can't say I follow it every day, but it really helps! :) xoxo

  6. Mac Fascinating is a staple to me although I use it with a light hand. As for taupes, I'm addicted to them as well!

    1. @Cel: Well, as I'm typing this reply, it seems that spring weather has decided to finally greet us (and the flu that comes with it as well, lol)! Which should prooobably mean that I need to introduce some color into my outfits and makeup (I'm thinking my burgundy booties don't count)! xxx

  10. Black honey..an oldie but goodie! I love that a product can have that sort of history, in a world of limited edition collections.

    I've been trying to do a berry or red lip...while at the same time, trying to finish some lip products that are on the lighter side.

    1. @fantastic: Can't go wrong with a classic such as Black Honey, ever!!! And the whole array of LE collections has become impossible to keep up with, I want a product to impress me enough to remember it next month as well!!!

  13. Gosh I wish we could trade weather! :) I want Autumn like weather now since my condo's air conditioning doesn't turn on for about another month and it heats up in my condo a tad bit too much for my liking :S We went through some crazy heat spell (25 C) with summer-like weather which is extremely abnormal for March...usually March is still winter weather here but it seems to be getting warmer and warmer each year.
    I love your selection of makeup for Fall-like weather...the Clinique Black Honey Lipstick definitely :)
    And Thank You so much for tagging me Hun! :) I enjoyed hearing the kind of music that you like....it's very different than the typical hip hop and Top 40 music that I like. I liked the beat to Awolnation's song the best xx

    1. @Karen Law: Well, for better or for worse, the tamperamental (or just plain mental) spring weather is in full swing here atm, I already managed to get the flu once! I've been wearing a t-shirt during the day and sleeping under a duvet...Insane!
      I can't wait to read your tag! I'm sure I'll enjoy it, I can listen to those songs I posted abt, and then it will be progressive house, followed by classic rock (I know I'm weird, can't help it, hahaha)! xxx
