I have been on a no-buy for the last little while and that means it’s the perfect time to shop my stash for stuff I just haven’t been reaching for. When I find myself getting bored, it’s almost like my makeup drawers need a good shake to remind me of some of the stuff I have and just haven’t used. So that’s what we’re doing today. I’ve went through my collection and picked out some items that have been left out for a little while and I’m going to keep them out to remind myself to use them over the course of March. I recently did do a purge and gave some stuff that I knew I wouldn’t use to my friends so this is stuff that I can’t part with, but still am not using. It’s all good stuff and I hope that I fall back in love with this stuff in March.
NYX Studio Liquid Liner
The first product that has been slightly neglected is the NYX Studio Liquid Liner. I was obsessed with this about a year ago, but since getting comfortable with gel liner, I haven’t picked this up. It’s super black and has a super fine brush tip, i just need to reacquaint myself with liquid liner over gel. Hopefully I can master winged liner with this because I almost never wear liner without a wing since I have rounder eyes and winged liner is much more flattering.
L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow- Bronzed Taupe
This shadow is beautiful and I loved it when I had a pair of blue coloured contacts in the summer and early fall, but since then I just haven’t seemed interested in this. It still looks nice on my hazel eyes so I would like to bring this out again. It’s slightly cooler toned which also might be why I haven’t worn it since I love warm shades. These shadows are great quality so there’s really no reason for this to be shoved in the back of a drawer.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette
Okay so this one I’m really not sure I can make myself love. I literally have not picked this up to use in a look since my 21st birthday dinner which was nearly 9 months ago. This was the first Naked Palette I bought and the one that drew me in the most and I just never use this. There is nothing wrong with the quality of the shadows, but I think the tone of the shadows is why I don’t ever use this. I’m so pale that a lot of these shades can look pretty smokey and dark on me and since they’re cool toned it comes across pretty dramatic for daytime. I am really going to work to find a way to make this work for me. Before adding this to regrets, I’m going to give this a shot.
NYX Butter Glosses
I was looking through my lip gloss tray and I came across these NYX lip glosses which prompted me to include them in this post. I haven’t been wearing lip gloss at all lately, not just these so it’s kind of a reminder to wear gloss in general. I picked this brand because these are great glosses that aren’t sticky or too thick. If I’m going to wear a gloss, then these are probably what I would most likely wear.
Nars Blush- Orgasm
And we’ve come to another product that I’m giving one last shot. This is the infamous Orgasm Blush. I bought this purely due to all the hype and at this point it really isn’t living up to it. I’m hoping that making a point to use this will help me see what all the hype is about because right now it’s just a gritty, overly shimmery blush that I never use.
Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb- Bee Sting
The next product was actually part of the Too Faced Holiday 2013 collection. The shade was limited edition but the product can be bought separately. I wore this so much when I first got it, when I had very little lip options. I retried this on today and I like the shade so I’m going to try and start using this again.
Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette
The last item that I want to use more is the newest out of all of this month’s items. I got this around Christmas and I was really impressed by the quality of these blushes. I actually have no idea why I don’t reach for this, so hopefully I will rediscover it this month.
So there you have it, that’s all my products for the month. Wish me luck! Let me know in the comments below what products you love but are neglecting. I will be checking in at the end of the month to let you all know how it went!
Bye for now,
