Shopping My Stash / #10

I've been a bit depressed lately; I've been struggling with tendinitis in my right thumb probably due to my job. I've been in my current position for about 6 months and it's constant typing for 8 hours so I have developed this inflammation... what can I say? I work too hard! ;)
Anyway, you can imagine that the last thing I wanna do is to come home from work... and type some more, so apologise for the erratic update on the blog and other networks.

Sooooo to cheer me up I picked up the warm, peachy tones of coral in my make-up this week.
On the face: Mememe Seventh Heaven primer, Urban Decay Naked Skin Liquid Makeup in 3.0, Guerlain Meteorites Perles in 01 Teint Rose'.
On the cheeks I used Becca Luminous Skin Perfector in opal - which is my favourite together with pearl; I'm really interested to try a compact version of these too, hope they are not too powdery.
The blusher - Cover FX Bronzed FX in golden peach - is also pretty luminous with it's golden shimmer and not my first choice for autumn but nothing to lift the complexion like this baby.

On the eyes, I used another Becca product has a primer: Becca Eye Tint in vicuna that its pretty translucent just with a hint of glitter and most especially, does not budge and it's waterproof.
 As eyeshadow I applied Chanel Illusion d'Ombre in ebloui that I know it works well with corals and I can simply slap it on - not much effort required! ;)
Finally on the lips, I went for a balmy texture with Revlon ColorBust Lip Butter in peach parfait or  a more opaque finish with Lancome French Touch Lipstick in sweet marmalade.

Well, let me know if you suffer/suffered from this condition too and have any advise. For now, I'm just taking it slow and believe me,  using the mouse on the other hand is soooo frustrating!!!


  1. Love all the pretty shades, the eyeshadow in particular looks gorgeous, I've never suffered with that condition, but I hope it gets better! xx

    1. thanks sweetie. yep, the eyeshadow is gorgeous!! xx

  2. Hi Ale, I just thought I'd post a quick comment to say I had something similar to your thumb problem after sitting at a desk all day typing, the only difference was it affected my elbow instead! I was in agony :( it started gradually by aching and then one day it completely locked and I was unable to move it.
    I had to go to the doctors and was put on diclofenac (anti inflammatory painkillers) and had to put my arm in a sling, which meant I was off work for 2 weeks. When I returned like you I had to change over my mouse arm and type very very slowly.
    Its such a pain so I know how you are feeling! All I can say is you will get used to using a different arm for using your mouse, I did! In order to make sure it doesn't happen to me again I regularly swop between the two arms. I also try to take breaks as often as I can and avoid doing too much at the computer when I'm not at work.
    Hope this helps and hope you feel better soon x

  3. I love the peachy shades, the blush looks really pretty :)

  4. I can never get over how many amazing stuff you have

  5. (; Reb, xoxo.
