New week, new rotation of makeup in the mix!
LAST WEEK’S RESULTS
I used the Forever 21 palette and the Ace Beaute palette for a few days and then my Colourpop order came in and I couldn’t wait to try it out! So, that’s what I’ve been using the last few days on my eyes (if I’m wearing eyeshadow).
Items I’m decluttering:
- BH Cosmetics Liquid Foundation – it just does not look good on my skin and it is patchy and worn off by the end of the day
- Forever 21 Palette – the pigmentation is just not good. Will probably pass along to my sister
- Colourpop Single Shadow in Nillionaire – I think this must have dried out because it does not have that good glittery pigmentation that it used to have.
- Essence Setting Spray – I actually used this up so it’s headed to the trash!
LET’S GET TO THIS WEEK’S ITEMS!
Okay, so this first chunk hasn’t changed that much; I’ve just tried to narrow it down better.
For primers, I have the Maybelline Master Prime (Blur + Smooth) and the Hard Candy Color Correcting Primer. To be honest, I might purchase the Maybelline colour correcting primer this week because it is my favourite, and I just don’t see a difference nor do I think the Hard Candy one works well with my foundations.
For foundations, I picked up the Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation and I’ve heard generally favourable reviews so I thought I would test it out. And I kept in my Physician’s Formula Healthy Foundation because I love it.
I’ve added in my tried and true Butter Bronzer by Physician’s Formula. I love this bronzer! I managed to use up one already. I’ve added in a Note Blush I received in my Boxycharm a few months back, and I like the peachy colour on me. I kept in my Maybelline eyeshadow for my brows to be filled in, and then I finally added in two eyeliners; one from Maybelline and the other from Tarte. I don’t normally wear eyeliners, but since I’ve opened these I might as well see if I like them.
Next chunk for the face! I’ve kept in my staple concealer, brow gel and the mascara from last week. I’ve also added in the Wet N Wild MegaLength mascara; I actually forgot I had this and so it might be on the cusp of getting close to expiry. I’ve been loving my Maybelline Fit Me Pressed Powder and on days when I do not want my makeup to use I’ve been loving my Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder. I also just purchased the highlighting trio from Milani and am super excited to try it out!
So I ordered from Colourpop a few weeks ago when they were having a deal on creating your own palette with x number of shades and x number of face powders. I created the bundle where I received one highlight, one blush and one bronzer and then 12 different shadows. So far I’ve been pretty impressed with them especially the glitter/foiled shades and the highlighter.
Next. I just purchased a Milani lid topper in this gorgeous blue/purple reflect shade that I think would look beautiful over top the green shade from the Colourpop palette, or maybe one of the blues from the Subculture palette. Can’t wait to test it out!
Finally, I have this super old holiday palette from Tarte called Carried Away. I think this was my first “highend” palette. It came in like a makeup bag with a blush, setting powder and lipgloss’; most of which have since been decluttered. I used to love this palette! And I’m sure the formula is not as good as the Tarte shadows are now, but I would love to see what I can create with this palette. I’m very attached to this palette, so I’m sure even if I don’t end up using it, I would not be able to get rid of it.
That’s all for this week, folks! Hopefully this post will be “on-time” on Sunday!
