Stash or Trash #3 – Intro!

Time for another round of Stash or Trash! If you have seen one of my previous posts you know what it’s all about. If not, Stash or Trash is a blog series where I pull out 10 makeup items from my collection that I haven’t used in a long time or ar unsure about if I want to keep or not, and test and try them for a few weeks or so to figure out if they are items worth keeping or not. Kind of a relaxed way of doing some decluttering or rediscover products I like and want to use more.

This is the little pile I will go through the next couple of weeks, and I will do another post where I do a summary of what I decide to stash or trash. This time it’s a good mix of eyeshadows, lipsticks and face products.

IMG_20190523_203733_611.jpg

The eyeshadow palette is a limited edition palette I picked up on holiday in Italy many years ago. It goeas by the not so short name “Color Fever Must Have Eyeshadow Palette 02 Elegant Tones”. To be honest I think I have only used it once even though the colors are really pretty. I have no idea what I think about the quailty, but I aim to find out.

 

The single eyeshadows are from an indie brand called Fyrinnae. The shades are Rapunzel Had Extensions and Aztec Gold. The first being a beautiful pink with gold, and the second a green gold. Quite unique shades. I used to wear them a lot many years ago, but I havent reached for them for years. I want to test them out again to see if the quality is compatible to my current standards, because as my collection has grown over the years I have learned much more about what I think is good quality and what I think is not. I am excited to see how these hold up. The colors are lovely though!

The small mascara is a travel size from YSL I got in a kit ages ago. I havent even opened it, so now I want to see if it’s still any good. If so I should just use it up and get my moneys worth out of them.

IMG_20190523_203822_218.jpg

I also got a few face products going on! The NARS highlughter is “Satelite of Love” which was a limited edition. Not quite sure if it is supposed to be a blush or a highlighter. In my opinion it does not really work that well as any of those choices. Too little pigment to be a blush (at least for me) and it’s not really up to par with todays highlighters. I will give it one more try, but honestly I think I just hung on to it because it’s NARS, expensive and limited edition.

The blush is a H&M Pure Radiance Powder Blush in “Cherry”. I really enjoy the H&M blushes, they are surprisingly good, but I never reach for this because of the shade. I think it’s too dark for me. I will give it a few tries with a light hand and decide if I think I would reach for it again or if it will just drown in my collection as it has been for a while.

The highlighter “Wet Sand” from Everyday Minerals is actually very beautiful, but I never think about reaching for is since it’s this loose powder in an unpractical jar. I will see if I enjoy the formula enough to be worth it still. I can’t remember the last time I used it but it’s many years old and have been unused for almost as many years.

IMG_20190523_203853_301.jpg

Lastly a small selection of lipsticks. Again we have a H&M lipsticks, and again these are surprisingly great. Once again, as with the blush, the shade is the problem. It’s very bright and purple, and usually when I go for a bright lip I use reds. I will wear this a few times and see if I get used to it and would want to reach for it again. I am afraid it will make my teeth look yellow.

The two Kiko lipsticks are both the same Unlimited Styli lipsticks. I used them a bit when they were new, but I think I remember them being a bit dry. I will try them again and see if I changed my mind or if I will possably use them in combination with other lip products like a gloss.

I have the feeling I will be able to part with a few more items this time as well. For now I will test and try them out and when I made up my mind on all the items I will get back to you with a summary.

What are your decluttering tactics?

Anastasia Soft Glam Makeup looks – 6 looks with one palette!

Even though I have more than my share of neutral eyeshadows I knew I had to pick this up as soon as I saw it. Nothing exceptional about the color selection, but a very nicely composed palette with hopefully good quality shades was what sold me.

As usual I prepare myself for a palette review by creating several different makeup looks so I can test out every shadow in the palette properly. And that’s how these makeup look posts are born. Hopefully that can give some of you suggestions to how to use the palette, or help you figure out if it is something you would enjoy of not by seeing them in action.

As you probably know if you are one of my lovely lovely followers already you know there will be a separate review post with swatches and all the details a few days prior to my makeup look posts. So stay tuned for that!

Anyways, here are my glam makeup looks with the soft glam palette:

4 looks 1 palette – Zoeva Offline!

I don’t see many people talking about Zoeva compared to how much attention I think they deserve, and I see even fewer people mention the Offline eyeshadow palette. Truth is I think it is a pretty cool palette, with the first row of shadows being neutrals and wearable shimmers, while the second row has some nice pops of colors that work well together. In these looks I focused on the second row, which is hardly surprising to you if you have been following me for a while.

List of products are under each photo. Hope you enjoy them!

IMG_20180204_223610_548.jpg

  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick – Drug Lord.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24 h – Black.
  • Lancôme Volume-à-Porter Mascara – Black.
  • Ardell Fauxmink Lashes – 810.
  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum – Bro30, Bro70.

I think I prefer the third look myself, but don’t be fooled by these looks because I used this palette a lot for everyday wearable looks for a while, and it works just as good for that purpose. So this palette can be both fun and work appropriate. But stay tuned for the upcoming review!

4 different looks with “All I See Is Magic” by Colourpop

I can’t be the only one who really like the Holiday 2017 palette “All I See Is Magic” by Colourpop can I? I figured I had to do a post with some looks and also post a review while it is still available. I assume it was limited edition since it was a holiday palette

A full review of this palette will be coming shortly. I got to play around with all the shades and I think I got a pretty thorough background for my review. So remember to give me a follow if you don’t want to miss out on that.

The palette contains a lot of warm, red, golden and bronzy shades so that’s also how the looks turned out. Hope you like them, and as usual every product is listed under each picture.

IMG_20171222_083614_306.jpg

  • Shades from the palette – Go Wish, Imperial, Tinsel Town, Wishful Thinking, Treat Yourself, Now and Zen.
  • Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner 24h – Black.
  • Lancôme Grandiose Liquid Liner – Black.
  • Kiko Twinkle Eye Pencil – 05 (teal).
  • Zoeva Brow Spectrum -Bro30.
  • Lancôme Volume-à-Porter
  • Eyelure lashes volume 101.

IMG_20171222_083711_029.jpg

  • Shades from the palette – Go Wish, Top Notch, T-Cup, Never Never, Save It For Later, Now and Zen.

  • Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade – Medium Brown.
  • Lancôme Volume-à-Porter Mascara.
  • Ardell Fauxmink Lashes 810.

I got a bit experimental with that last look I guess. There are a lot of pretty shades in this palette, and I think you got the shades you need to make a nice glam party-look! My favorite shade is Wishful Thinking, the metallic brown with green duo-chrome I used in the first look.

Did you grab this palette, or did you give it a pass?

XOXO
