As part of my goal this year to thin out my makeup drawer and as it’s January and I’m destitute, I am currently shopping my stash.
I want to spend a week using products to see if I truly like them, am indifferent or straight up dislike them.
Some products need to be played with to find the best way to use them and I have a habit of throwing them in a drawer when they don’t work 1st go.
So these are the products I will be using this week:
For primer I’m trying for the first time Wet n Wild’s Coverall Primer. Also new this week are Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte & Poreless & Fit Me Concealer . I’ve heard good things about both, the concealer is supposed to be a dupe for Urban Decays’s Naked Concealer.
I’m not a fan of Urban Decays Allnighter foundation on it’s on. It breaks down on my nose something fierce and seems to shift around on my face a lot. But I love it mixed in with whatever foundation I am currently using as it is the perfect colour and seems to increase the longevity of it.
The Catrice camouflage concealer is for any pimples that pop up!
The Laura Mercier loose powder is fantastic and I can’t seem to do my makeup without it anymore!
The NYX high definition blusher in Taupe is the perfect colour for contouring my skin tone which is pasty pale.
The Wet n Wild coloricon blush in pearlescent pink is supposed to be a dupe of the Nars Orgasm blush. Having never tried the Nars one I can’t attest to this but it is very pretty.
The Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer is a gorgeous bronzer , so buttery and a lovely light colour with a fabulous “holiday” scent.
My wonderful hubby bought me both the Kat Von D shade & light eye palette & the Urban Decay Gwen Stefanie palette over the past 2 christmas’s. I ❤️ the KVD palette and use it in conjunction with every other eyeshadow I use.
I love the Maybelline colour tattoos and use them instead of eye primers as my lids can be super sensitive causing my eyes to water and these help stop that.
I’m using Wet n Wild’s ultimate brow kit. I prefer to use powders in my brows. Pomade’s are too thick for me and pencils are a tad time consuming for day to day use. I like to top off with L’Oréal brow artist plumper.
Then NYX wonder pencil in the waterline to try and make me look more awake and NYC automatic eyeliner waterproof in black in the tightline.
Finally on my lips 👄:
So by the end of the week I should either be keeping or decluttering these products. Hopefully finding some new favourites 😉
