Makeup Hauls – October 2019!

I felt like I barely bought any makeup in October, so I am not really sure how all of this happened. Surely, some of these things were ordered in September, but still I feel like this is a lot more than what I actually ordered. I think I really need to slow down on buying new palettes. I have a hard time managing to review them all. Can’t help it though. I just love all the colors, and all the neutrals.

IMG_20191028_211518_825.jpg

I was absolutely stunned when Colourpop released the So Jaded palette! I know big palettes are not everyones cup of tea, but I have a weakness for them. Not when they are called Morphe and has 35 shades of 6 different browns, but when they have a lot of variation and color they hit a nerve for me. I am in love with how this palette looks. I want more big palettes like this! I hope their holliday collection is a new huge palette. That would make me happy! In the mean time I’ll just admire this one.

IMG_20191028_211545_022.jpg

While we are talking about big palettes here’s another one! The Beauty Bay Going Out Out. It was some journey to get this! I ordered this one back in the beginning of May actually. I waited and waited and the package never arrived. After a few months I contacted Beauty Bay about my missing order, but they said that since it was more than three months since the order, and they had not recieved any retuned packages they could not refund me. So I was a bit bummed, and I figured I didn’t need the palette after all, and I forgot about it for a while. But in September they had 50% off their entire line, so I decided to pick this up for half the price. And you know what? Two weeks ago I got refunded for the parcel that was lost in May. It just showed up after all and I got my money back. How lucky is that!

IMG_20191028_211612_878.jpg

As I find the eyeshadows from Beauty Bays own line to be quite good I wanted to try their highlighters as well. I got the Beuty Bay Ethereal Bouncy Beam Multi Use Highlighter palette and three of the Beauty Bay Gelèe Glow Multi Use Higlighters in three different shades. I think I got some fun options here and I am curious how they work!

IMG_20191028_211711_258.jpg

I also adore the cute little 9-pans from Colourpop so I grabbet the “Baby Got Peach” and “Lilac You A Lot”. I hope to see more from the pastel color series in the future. I would love a pastel mint palette! I also snagged the beautiful peach blush in the shade “Frisky Business”. Because Colourpops pressed powder blushes has a lovely formula too!

IMG_20191028_211739_510.jpg

The color story of Obsession Makeups “Black is the new Black” eyeshadow palette is so appealing to me. I really like the looks of it. I hope it performs well. A black palette should have an awesome black in my opinion. I did swatch the silver though, and that looks incredible!

Since I have been really enjoying the Conceal & Define foundation and concealer, I had to try the Conceal & Hydrate too! So I picked up both the foundation and concealer. I have been quite lucky with my Makeup Revolutino foundations so far. Three out of three has been a hit for me, which is quite impressive for a cheap drugstore brand I would say! I hope these are a hit too!

And along in the same order came the I ❤ Revolution Mint Choc Chip primer…..because mint chocolate! I don’t really need a green color correcting primer. I just wanted it to smell like mint chocolate, and it does!

IMG_20191028_211832_759.jpg

I may have gone a bit crazy with the Colourpop Disney Midnight Masquerade collction. Although I didn’t get everything I got a lot of my favorite pieces from the collection. The packaging is just so beautiful! I got off course the palette, 5 of the blush/highlighter compacts and four of the brand new Lux Liquid Lipstick formula!

IMG_20191028_211808_151.jpg

Since Ofra has one of my very favorite highlighter formulas I had to make a little dedicated Ofra order. I got the Blush “Mai Tai”, and the highlighters “Bali” and “Cloud 9”. I also got three different shades of the Ofra Liquid Lipsticks. I have heard so many good things about their formula, but I have never tried them myself so I figured it was about time.

IMG_20191028_211854_005.jpg

All my magnetic palettes with Colourpop singles were full, so I had to grab a new empty one. It’s handy to have one of these, because I like to throw in a single or two to complete the order, and I had run out of space to collect them. So I got the new gorgeous one they just releases as well as three singles. And yes, “Smoke Show” off course! The white, black and grey palette so many have been waiting for!

IMG_20191028_211943_300.jpg

Makeup Revolution release so much they may be even worse than Colourpop. Their numberous releases makes me keep just half an eye on them, but from time to time they drop a collection that gets my attention. Green palettes tend to get my attention in general, but look how beautiful this is! I have a few palettes already in the Forever Flawless series and I am very happy with them, so the Chilled palette got a spot in my collection!

I also got the Blowout Mascara, the Purifying Priming Water and Lip Nourishing Tint in the shade “Energy”.

IMG_20191028_211919_637.jpg

Finally….more highlighter! This time from MAC! This highlighter palette is absolutely stunning! It’s a limited edition one and it’s called Ignite Wonders Face Palette. I also grabbed the blush “Dainty” because MAC blushes are a long time favorite of mine!

That’s all for now…..I really need to slow down on eyeshadow palettes!

Did you pick up anything fun in October?

Stash or Trash #4 – Intro!

I took a deep dive into my collection again to find 10 items I want to test and try over the next couple of weeks to figure out if I want to keep them i my collection. I am so bad at decluttering I really have a hard time letting things go, I am a collector at heart, but this strategy helps me because I pick out 10 item that I haven’t used in a while, or that I am not sure fits me any more (or maybe it never fitted I just didn’t realize).

IMG_20191003_101059_613.jpg

I try to pick out a bit of different products so I got blush, highlighters, single eyeshadows, and even a high end eyeshadow palette. So this will be interesting to test out!

IMG_20191003_101231_635.jpg

The eyeshadow palette is off course Huda Beauty Rose Gold Textured palette. This is the old version. I have never had such an expensive palette with this cheap of a packaging. Sadly I was not loving the formula either. I think the Desert Dusk palette is way better than this (although to be honest the Huda Beauty formula is not among my favorites). This palette just didn’t do it for me. I had this for three years or so now I think. And it’s been almost three years since I used it too! I just remember not liking it and since I have so many eyeshadows it seems silly to reach for one I don’t like. I just need to check if I like it better now and if it’s worth keeping.

The Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerize is the only Charlotte Tilbury product to ever dissapoint me. Everything else I have tried from the brand has been a hit. This is a cream eyeshadow, and the shade “Marie Antoniette” is so beautiful. But I just could not make it stick to my eyes! This one is probably also about three years. I need to try it again and see if there is any changes.

The cream shadow from Kiko, the Metallic Shine Eyeshadow in shade 06, I did really use to like. I just haven’t used it for a while either. I will play around with it and see if I think I will get more use out of it or if I just maybe should toss it before it dries out.

IMG_20191003_101254_285.jpg

The Kiko Pure Pleasure Creamy Blush in 03 Untamed Coral used to be one of my summer favorites. I am afraid it may have gotten to old and the formula may have changed. I will give it one more go and see if there is still some life left in it.

The Estee Lauder x Michael Kors Very Hollywood Shimmering Loose Powder is a funny thing. Because I bought it years ago. Probably 8 or even more. And I never used it. Not even once. I don’t know why I got this to be honest. It’s just been sitting in my collection and for some reason it was never used. Now I will!

Everyday Minerals Cheek Blush in “Waffle Cone”. I used to use these blushes all the time back when mineral makeup was so popular. I had loose powder everything back then, even primer and concealer (I know, hard to imagine). I used to really like this one, and I will try it again now and see if I think I will continue to use it in the future.

IMG_20191003_145954_949.jpg

I own several of Makeup Revolutions liquid highlighters and I have to say I like them just as muchas more expensive ones like that one from Cover FX or Iconic London. But this shade in particular “Dragons Blood” (I got it for the name off course) is a bit glittery and I never really liked it on my cheeks.

I also picked out two shades from my Liveglam KissMe liquid lipstick collection. I have quite a few of them and I love the nudes and reds, but the darker shades I have had some issues with. I picked out the shades “Sugar Daddy” and “Vixen” to try them one last time to see if I can make them work for me. I only used them a couple of times when they were new and then they have just been dormant in my drawers.

Finally a K-Beuty product. I relly used to like these Perifera Peri’s Ink Velvet but haven’t used it in a long time. Now I pull it out again to see if it’s a keeper!

Now I will go on to use these products for a while. I will see if I can make them work, if they are still good and if they are worth keeping in my collection or not. Hopefully I will get to declutter a tiny bit to clear up space, and if I am lucky I may rediscover and old favorite that I fall in love with again.

In a few weeks time when I have made up my mind I will post the recap and my decluttering progress!

What is your favorite strategy for decluttering?

Makeup Hauls – September 2019!

September has come to an end and it’s time to do a little summary about the new things collected. It’s always fun to do this posts, both to keep track on what is entering my collection. And you can also consider it a review preview. I usually get around to review all my palettes. It may take a while, but you know eventually. So if you see something you really ant to know about let me know, so I know what to keep as a priority.

IMG_20190930_140427_652.jpg

The Blush Tribe Laila 2 is the green palette of my dreams. I haven’t tried it so far so we are stricktly speaking color story, but I have enjoyed Blush Tribe shadows in the past and have high hopes for this one. I also got the three beautiful pigments. I figured they would go nicely with the shadows in the palette.

IMG_20190930_140723_960.jpg

The amount of Colourpop palettes being released is aboslutely exhausting. I really do try to keep up, because I love the formula but they really are making it a challenge for me. Here is Strawberry Shake, Orange You Glad, and California Love. California Love I actually ordered in June, but it never arrived. The package just got lost in the mail, but I really wanted the palette so I re-ordered it during a sale they had on palettes not that long ago.

IMG_20190930_140815_985.jpg

On that already mentioned sale I also got The Missunderstood palette from their Villain collection. Was not the Villain collection one of their most epic collections so far? I think so at least. This one has been on my list for a long time, and I am happy to finally own it.

IMG_20190930_140747_789.jpg

We are not done with Colourpop just yet though! The fall palette Whatever had to be mine because I love the pinks and burgundy shades mixed with stunning glitters and metallics (I still like the colors of last years fall palette “Good Sport” a bit better though).

I got three of the Just a Tint crayons as well. Am I the only one getting 2012 vibes? I feel that was the time every brand released crayon lip products. Anyway, these seems like something I could enjoy so I decided to pick up a few to do a review later on. Let me just test and try first.

I also stopped by a NYX counter and I picked up the Can’t Stop Won’t Stop foundation that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. Then I saw this NYX Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer and I was wondering what I have missed. I have never heard or seen anything about this, but it seems like a new product to me. Did I just totally miss something? Anyway, I picked it up, because I want to do a review of it!

I also got two of the NYX Candy Slick Glowy Lip Color. This is also a product I haven’t tried so I hope they are good. I picekd up two shades just to test them out properly.

I am not done with the palettes though! Last months haul I showed off the Glowing in Greece and the Summer in St.Tropez and I also mentioned that I had also picked up the Beautiful in Barcelone. Finally it arrived, and it’s so pretty. I don’t know, I feel like the color scheme offers something different in a way. Maybe it’s just because it has a lot of cool tones, but either way I really like the looks of it!

IMG_20190930_140842_807.jpg

And, can we talk about this Revolution PRO Day&Night palette? I haven’t worn it on my eyes yet, just swatched the shade, but the seem so smooth and rich and beautiful they almost seem too good to be true! Or at least to good to be affordable. I mean that blue and those duochromes are to die for! So So pretty!

Finally I picked up a palette from Revolution PRO’s sister brand which is Makeup Revolution off course. This is the Makeup Revolution X Rachel Leary Ultimate Goddess palette. To be fair I just got this one because the pure gold highlighter looked kind of special. I don’t think I have one like that. Unfortunately somethings weird about this palette. Notice that the two last shades are exactly the same? I didn’t decide if I should bother return it or not.

Did you pick up something fun lately? Or what is really high on your wishlist?

Makeup Hauls – August 2019!

OK, so the hauls collected in August is quite a bit less than what I got in June, but I have a pile of things I need to review and I really need to slow down on collecting more palettes untill I work my way through a bit. So I am trying to limit myself a bit. Not being too successful but at least there is a decrease in stuff since last month.

Anyway, you may notice something strange, and that is that there are no Colourpop hauls this time. That’s actually the first time since I started writing these monthly hauls. There is just always something from Colourpop. Off course, I did order something, it’s just that the parcel arrived two days into September, so those items (which are delicious little things by the way) will be presented in the next haul post.

IMG_20190908_175012_614.jpg

Since I already love Makeup Revolution Fast Base Stick foundation, and really really like the Conceal & Define foundation I figured it could not hurt to test out their Matte Base Pore Blurring Full Coverage Foundation. I haven’t heard that much about it and it’s been a while since it came out. It’s kind of the same thing with these Makeup Revolution Eye Glisten thingies. There is one liquid shadow on one side, and a glitter on the other side. I picked up the shade Yours Truly (pink) and It’s Fate (Champagne and silver). No wonder that they release a bunch of stuff we never hear about. I mean no one in the world’s got time to review all their releases unless they were solely a Makeup Revolution review site. Anyway, I am excited to try these. Would you like to now what I feel about these? Or is the reason for the quiet around them that people are indifferent?

IMG_20190908_175047_908.jpg

BH Cosmetics released some beautiful stuff lately as well! I picked up the beautiful Glowing in Greece blush and highlighter palette. It’s so so pretty! It rarely happens to me that I find the blush palette to be the most attractice in a collection but this time around that was the case. I also picked up the palette Summer In St.Tropes. It does have both some fun shades as well as more neutral options, which is something I love. But I have to admit the blues and the yellows was what drew me in. I hope the quality will be similar to the Weekend Festival palette, which is in my opinion the best palette BH Cosmetics have made.

IMG_20190908_175116_353.jpg

Also, I was lucky enought to recieve some PR from Dumb Blonde Cosmetics, and I got the Tropic Like It’s Hot collection featuring 4 summery fun pigments, and 4 glitters.

I don’t showcase much PR on my blog or IG and the reason being I don’t really get much at all. Almost every time a brand reach out I do decline the offer. And I never reach out to brands to tell them about my excistence either. My philosophy is that I have so much makeup already, and I can afford to buy basically what I want, so I don’t see any point in recieving PR unless it’s actually something I would have liked to buy myself. After all my pile of new makeup is more than large enough to feed me with review material for my blog for months and months, and I don’t need free stuff I don’t really want to clutter up. I do think it’s better that I just buy the things I really want. But when this brand reached out I did a rare thing and happily accepted, because her products looks so cute.

IMG_20190908_175152_586.jpg

And sure thing, the glitters are so cute! I do love chunky glitter and that is also a part of my collection that I feel like expanding. Chunky glitter can just save any look! So after receaving the PR package I was so happy with the products that I ordered these glitters as well, I even got some free samples thrown in the order which is so nice! Now I have a bunch of chunky goodess to add to looks.

IMG_20190908_175557_706.jpg

I got some more palettes too! From Makeup Revolution. I already got two palettes from ther Forever Flawless series and I am quite happy with the formula on these. They are cheap, the packaging is nice, and the shadows are among the better ones from Makeup Revolution. So when they ca out with the Forever Flawless Ice palette, I just had to. It reminds me of simething though, because it looks awfully much like a Blue Blood dupe.

IMG_20190908_175525_627.jpg

I am not a big fan of the food palette trend that’s been going on lately. I don’t want pizza palettes, or burger palettes, or milkshake palettes. Especially when they are shaped like mentiond food item. It’s just not my thing. But a regularly shaped palette with an Avocado theme I can get on board with. Besides I love green, and this palette looks so pretty. So the Makeup Revolution Avocado Palette had to be mine!

IMG_20190908_175628_601.jpg

And so did this Turkish Delight palette (again something foody). This is the first one of the chocolate bar palettes I’ve tried. They never really tempted me, ut this one did! I love the color story, and also that there are several different textures in this palette including glitters! And glitter just makes me happy!

IMG_20190908_175451_578.jpg

The last item is also a palette, but for your cheeks! The Balm just have the cutest

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Eyeshadow Palettes! (This is crazy!)

This one took me some time to do! First of all I had to work up the courage to just get the job done, then I had to try to take pictured and make it sort of organized without loosing control (let’s just say I had to re-do some of the pictures in the end), and then finally edit all the photos, and write the post.

So, if are sharp you may notice that you have seen a few new palettes in my stories or my Instagram the last couple of weeks that are missing in this post. It’s simply because I had to work with this for a while and I got e few new palettes in the time between taking the photos and finishing this post.

Without any more rambling, these are my eyeshadow palettes with 10 shades or more!

So if you are missing some of my more recent palettes than you are absolutely right. They will be added next year!

In this post I count 138 palettes. That’s the number of a very enthusiastic collector! A rough estimate tells me with these, my smaller eyeshadow palettes and my new additions the last moths I probably have about 200. Crazy right? Well, thats what you get for loving both colors, neutrals and makeup all together.

Have you counted your collection? You may get surprised! (I kind of did).

Makeup Hauls – June 2019!

June was another crazy month regarding hauls. But since so much takes 3-4 weeks or even more to reach me I haven’t recieved all of it yet. Maybe not even half to be honest. I have a lot of new fun stuff to play with, and palettes that will take me to the middle of winter to get through and review. I don’t know what to say,  I am a collector at heart and new palettes just keep on boosting my creativity and joy of makeup. I do have a lot to work through though so I may considering posting two palette reviews each week for some time. But first I need to finish the construction work in my kitchen. We are tearing down roof and walls, putting in new windows, redoing insulation and adding ned floors, roof and walls in adition to the actual kitcken. I guess I don’t have to say that doing two palette reviews a week is a bit out of my reach at the moment, but maybe when winter approach.

Anyway, I always keep on rambling about random stuff and here you are waiting to see my hauls. Sorry about that! So here goes all:

IMG_20190702_133259_387.jpg

As I mentioned in my single pan makeup collection post I do want to grow my single pan collection this year. One of the brands I really want to collect more shadows from is Devinah. I have a small collection of shadows from before which are lovely. Lovely enough for me to want to grow a nice Devinah collection. Since I love greens I figured the Kiss Me Clover green matte bundle was a great addition.

IMG_20190702_133234_690.jpg

The Jeffree Star Blue Blood palette I have been waiting for to restock since forever. I mean, off course did I need a big blue palette right? My favorite shade of eyeshadow (but equal to greens) with Jeffree Starts amazing eyeshadow formula? Yes, please! Not to mention the palette is a gem on it’s own. No doubt a true collection piece that I could finlly add to my collection.

IMG_20190702_133426_568.jpg

I was not joking about wanting to enlargen my single pan collection. These beauties are all from Looxie Beauty. They had a sale so I grabbed a bunch and now I have a complete magnetic palette with Looxie shadows, and they are so good I am happy to start filling up one more! If you havent tried their metallic formula you should (if you like metallic shadows off course) because I think they are phenomenal.

IMG_20190702_133534_771.jpg

And off course I got some Colourpop. I don’t think there has been one single month where I did not place a Colourpop order since they launched their first palette. I am that addicted! I got the Main Squeeze and Blue Moon palettes, I love their monochromatic series, and on blush stick as well as one highligter stick. Excited to try those new sticks! Love a good cream blush or highlighter for summer so these came just in time (now we just need some summer here).

IMG_20190702_133448_849.jpg

And since glitter is the perfect way to glam up any look, I had to go for this custom 12 pan pressed glitter palette from Colourpop. I have already tried a few shades and they are soooo pretty!

I also grabbed two of their new loose glitters in the shade “Gotta Jet” and “Far Out”. Much more fine milled glitter than the pressed ones, but still very pretty!

IMG_20190702_133628_634.jpg

That collecting more singles thing was not a joke! This is the Awakening collection by Lethal Cosmetics. Another indie brand with fantastic single eyeshadows. And these just look so unique don’t they? I now have two 12-pan palettes complete by this brand, and off course hope to grab more in the future!

IMG_20190702_133510_057.jpg

Makeupgeek Cosmetics is one of the few brands I feel very nostalgic about. I have been pickng up bits and pieces from their line ever since it launch. Can you remember back in the day when the first Makeupgeek eyeshadows was released? People went crazy over them, and they are still great. I got the brand new Beautifully Bare Face Palette in Light, and two single pan shadows in “Surf’s Up” and “Leafing So Soon”.

IMG_20190702_133553_846.jpg

One of my gel liners was drying out so I figured it was time to grab the famous Inglot Duraline drops. And while I was at it I grabbed a black Inglot gel liner as well. I hav a purple one many many years ago and know they are great (or used to be at least!).

IMG_20190702_133208_418.jpg

And this is what I was the most happy about by far. Natasha Denona makes one of my very favorite eyeshadow formulas, and picking up a new palette from her is always so exciting. This is the Gold Palette and the Sunrise Palette. I hope she will release more “mini” palettes like Sunrise. I don’t think it’s mini, they are just smaller than the regular palettes. The shadows are still bigger than say Anastasia. So I just love that we can get ND palettes for a more affordable price. Honestly I was afraid id would be like credit card sized and you could brely dip your brush in the pans, but this is decent!

IMG_20190705_180637_739.jpg

Last but not least I got the Ofra Francesca Tolot Gilded Palette. I bought it almost solely for that peach glowy blush/highlighter, but the rest of the palettes look stunning too. This will be an all year palette for me because the pale bronzer works when I am pale, and the darker bronzer works for me in summer.

And thats all for now!

Did you pick up anything exciting in June?

Makeup Hauls – May 2018

May was a good month for hauls. Not that I ordered a razy amount of products, but I got packages that I ordered both during march and april and suddenly things added up. So check out all the goodies I got!

IMG_20190606_121243_717.jpg

Off course no month passes by without a Colourpop haul or two. We are probably talking about one of my all time favorite brands here, and they rarely dissapoint. I got the Proceed With Causion palette as well as the two blushes from the same collection. I also grabbed three of the new creme gel liners in the shades Insomniac, Electric Daisy and Untz!

IMG_20190606_121317_119.jpg

After planning on picking these two up for a while I finally pulled the trigger and got both the Sultry and Riviera palette from Anastasia. I was happy to finally have every Anastasia palette since Modern Renaissance in my collection. When I finally got them I guessed they would probably soon release another palette just to make my collection incomplete again, and the day after I recieved it the new palette was announced. I will off course pick that one up too. I am all for a colorful palette in the much loved Anastasia formula.

IMG_20190606_121500_096.jpg

Makeup Revolution are turning into the European version of Colourpop and release palette faster than I can drink my morning Coffee. I pass over most of their eyeshadow palette releases, but on occasion I do pick them up. These two were just too tempting. The top palette is Make Magic palette, and the bottom one is Carnival palette. Just look at all those fun colors!

IMG_20190606_121341_517.jpg

Tarte finally realized the should release more than just basic neutral palettes and I am all for it! I picked ut Tarteist Pro Remix, Icy Betch and High Tides and Good vibes. Sure there are some neutrals here too, but also plenty of color. I am excited to see how well Tarte manage to do colorful eyeshadows. Fingers crossed they know how to make more than just browns!

IMG_20190606_121432_628.jpg

Ok, I guess a few more palettes from Makeup Revolution have been tempting me! But aren’t these packaging gorgeous? These are the Forever Flawless Optimum and Forever Flawless Decadent.

IMG_20190606_135610_609.jpg

A few random bits and pieces. The Colourpop Volumising Mascara in “Blue Ya Mind”. I just love that they have a whole bunch of colorful mascaras in their collection now. I also decided to try the Makeup Revolution Tropical Quench Essence Spray because it sounds refreshing. The Limecrime Softwear Blush in “Hyperlink” is actually my first ever Limecrime product. This is a cream to powder blush and both the blush shade and the packaging is so gorgeous. Then I randomly grabbed a NYX illuminating stick (have to fill up an order to get free shipping right?) in the shade “Electric Invasion”

IMG_20190606_121519_322.jpg

I am guilty of picking up all Colourpop palettes I can get my hands on. I miss a couple of palettes that got discontinued before I could get my hands on them but I have nearly every palette they released (except the small 4 and 6 pans). This is Brunch Date along with a gorgeous red Matte Liquid Lip in “La la Land” and a free samle they sent (for being late) in “Barracuda”.

IMG_20190606_121540_322.jpg

Beautybay also have some nice affordable makeup options and finally made Wet and Wild more easily avaliable for me. I got a bronzer brush from Wet N Wild, The limited edition bronzer “You’re Dragon Me Down” (with a dragon on!), Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighter in “Radiant Lights” and a Wet N Wild highlighter in “Winter Falls In LA”. There is also a Hypnotic Metallics Single Highlighter from the Norwegian brand Makeup Mekka in the shade “Passionate”. Cheap and hopefully good stuff!

IMG_20190606_121405_759.jpg

Makeup Mekka is a Norwegain only (sorry) website that sells their own makeup line. I have tried a few things, and honestly they are not so good, but for the most part their highlighters and blushes are nice. So I ordered 4 blushes (along with the highlighter in th picture above). The gorgeous coral cream blush, and three strobe blushes. I do love a glowy blush and these looks so so pretty.

IMG_20190606_135635_318.jpg

I also finally got my hands on Urban Decay Naked Cherry. So now I have every naked palete except the Reloaded one (that I am not really tempted to buy to be frank). I think pinks looks so nice with blue eyes so hopefully this will be much used.

IMG_20190606_135656_977.jpg

And last but not least I got one palette that’s been on my wishlist for a long time (isn’t it a great feeling to finally tick something off your wishlist?). The Menagerie Cosmetics Feral palette. The palette itself is a true piece of art, and the colors inside are so exciting.

Can’t wait to play around with everything!

Did you get anything exciting last month? Or do you have some fun purchaing goals for June?

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Foundations!

Yet another part of my makeup collection to go through. But tell me, what is your favorite foundation?

I still think my Guerlain Ligerie De Peau is my top pick, as it has been for a couple of years, but I have a lot of other great ones too!

I am not that into buying new foundations all the time, at least not as much as with eyeshadows and such, but I have a decent amount.

IMG_20190502_111432_935.jpg

First let’s go through my drugstore foundations. Now, I don’t mind paying the price for a high-end or even luxury makeup, but I still have a majority of drugstore (or drugstore priced) foundations.

  • Tolymoly Luminous Goddess Aura BB Crem.
  • Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation – F6.
  • Revolution Conceal & Define Foundation – F4.
  • Lirikos Marine Radiance Double Cover Foundation.
  • L’Oreal Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation 24 H.
  • L’Oreal Infallible 24H  Matte Foundation.
  • Wet N’Wild Photofocus Foundation.
  • A’Pieu Natural BB Cream.
  • Maybelline FitMe Matte + Poreless – 105.
  • Milani Conceal + Perfect 2 in 1 Foundation.
  • Revolution Fast Base Stick – F5.
  • Revolution Fast Base Stick – F4.
  • Colourpop No Filter Foundation.
  • The Seam Eco Soul Real Fit Foundation.

IMG_20190502_111509_375.jpg

I was actually surprised when I pulled out all my foundations to see that I don’t really have that many high-end ones. Don’t get me wrong, five is more than enough! As you can probably tell I have both my summer and winter shades here.

  • Guerlain Lingerie De Peau.
  • Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear.
  • Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation.
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Makeup.
  • Clinique Superbalanced.

The total count is 19 foundations. Not that bad I think! That’s actually exactly the same amount as I had last year. Sure I’ve bought some foundations, but I’ve also finished some.

Do you know your foundation count?

Stash or Trash #2 – Intro!

You guys seemed to like the first blog post in this series. If you haven’t read it I will give you a brief summary. With these posts I aim to pick out 10 products in my collection. Things taht are old, or that I for some reason don’t reach for. After testing and trying each product I will then decide if I will keep it (Stash) or declutter it (Trash). Here are the 10 items I picked out for this round!

IMG_20190226_154807_975.jpg

Lot’s of different stuff here. Now, I am a person who has a very hard time decluttering things. I love makeup and I really don’t mind having a large collection, so I that cut throat decluttering that some people do where they go through parts of their collection and get rid of a whole bunch is not for me (although, it is indeed admirable). But this kind of post actually made me get rid of a few things last time, so just taking my time and using and trying before making a decision may be more of my style anyway. But let’s talk about the products one by one!

IMG_20190226_155022_699.jpg

I picked two blushes. One is Everyday Mineral Blush in “Memphis Rose”. I think this is slightly too dark for me and it does have chunky glitter. That’s not something I really love so I tend to not reach for this. I also find the loose formula to be a bit of a bummer. But I don’t actually remember how this even looks on the skin, so before making up my mind I have to try it and figure out how it looks!

The other is a NARS Orgasm Illuminator. I picked this up many years ago before I really got into cream blushes and I just forgot about it. I don’t think I have ever used it even! The Orgasm color is classic and I do like it, I also tend to really enjoy cream formulas at the moment so I want to give this one a try. I see myself using it as a blush though, not an illuminator.

IMG_20190226_154932_744.jpg

This Kiko eyeshadowis the same Cream Crush Long Lasting Color Eyeshadow pot that I had in my first Stash or Trash makeup post. Only this time the color is more fun (the shade number is 13). When I swatch it I think it feels a bit on the dry side so I am not sure how this would perform now. It’s a few years old after all.

Those two eyeshadow pencils are both from Oriflame. One is the Oriflame Giordani Gold Impressionism Eye Shadow Pencil in “Deep Emerald” , a beautiful true emerald green. The other one is Gold Impressionism Eye Shadow Pencil in “Sea Sapphire” which is a really pretty blue. I haven’t used these in ages. I just never think about reaching for them. They are just disappearing in my collection in a way. So now I will use them a bit and figure out what to do with them. Maybe they work as eyeliners and would be more used if I stored them among my other pencil eyeliners instead of among my single shadows and eyeshadow pots?

IMG_20190226_154903_948.jpg

Again, some more Kiko stuff! I remember I picked up these two, tried them, and then apparently never really reached for the  again. These are the Kiko Long Lasting Color Lip Marker in the shade107 (top) and 105 (bottom). I need to figure out what I think about these and if I want to keep them or not.

IMG_20190226_154959_615.jpg

That funky looking blue mascara is Dior Diorshow Mascara in shade 258. It’s a stunning blue, but to be honest it’s probably way behind expiration date. I rarely use it, so I don’t even know if it’s dry. If it sill works I will try to squeeze a few more looks out of it. But if it’s too dry I will trash this and probably pick up the blue Colourpop mascara instead.

The weirdly looking eyelinger thing is the Physicians  Formula Shimmer Strips Extreme Shimmer Kohl Kajal + Liquid Liner Trio “Glam Nude”. This is the black pencil in the trio. I have used the gold one quite a bit because it has a golden glitter liner, but this one I have just swatched. About time I try it and see if I will figure out a way to incorporate this into my routine, otherwise it can go because it’s not a particularly interesting piece to collect. So if I can’t make this work I think I can safely get rid of it.

IMG_20190226_154838_881.jpg

And finally I need to give this one a try again. I remember that I used to really like the NYX Ulitmate Bright palette some years ago, but the moment I got the Certifeye Tropical Wonders in my collection this one has been left forgotten in the drawer. I haven’t touched it for a couple of years despite using it quite a bit when it was new. Now I just believe I have so many other better colorful mattes in my collection so this one is just not reached for. I have to revisit and figure out what I think, because honestly I can’t really remember how the formula is even.

I am exited to test and try these things once again. I am hoping I will be able to declutter something. In a few weeks time when I have tried everything properly I will revisit each item and tell you which one made the cut and which ones I will departure with.

 

 

 

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Highlighters!

This is one of the parts of my collection that I have been most looking forward to digging through and taking pictures of. Besides eyeshadow palettes, this is my favorite item to collect and I always enjoy a good highlighter. I know this amount of highlighters is crazy, but I really enjoy having a large highlighter collection to rotate through.

So, lets go through the madness together!

IMG_20190302_225607_657.jpg

Let’s start of with some palettes here! I love a good highlighter palette, so I got quite a few of them. I list every palette down below, and try to make the order as logical as possible. Hope it makes sense and you can pinpoint the name to the palette.

Individual shades in these palettes are 141. The total amount if individual highlighter shades are then 219. Last year this number was 157, so I am up 62 shades. About what I expected actually.

And you, do you spot any of your favorites among these? or can you see something I am missing out on?

Remember I also happen to exits on Instagram. It’s a simple way to keep track on my latest post.
