New week, new rotation of makeup in the mix!


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!


General Overview of my makeup rotation this week!
Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer, Maybelline Eyeshadow, Note Blush, Maybelline Master Prime, Hard Candy Color Correcting Primer, Physician’s Formula Healthy Foundation, Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation, Maybelline Eyeliner and Tarte Eyeliner

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.

Milani Highlighting Trio, Covergirl concealer, L’Oreal Brow Gel, Wet N Wild Mega Length Mascara, Wander Beauty Mascara, Maybelline Loose Powder and Maybelline Pressed Powder

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!

Colourpop Create Your Own Palette, Milani Holographic Lid Topper, Tarte Carried Away Palette

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!
