My Makeup Collection 2019 – Bronzers!

We all enjoy a good bronzer right? At least I do. I don’t pick up too many bronzers I would say, but still I have managed do build quite a collection over the years. So now I want to show you all I got. Some of them I use on a regular basis, while others, like the beautiful limited edition pieces from Guerlain I consider true collection pieces that I want to keep intact. Do you do that? Buy makeup you don’t intend to use just because they are collection pieces? I guess that shows I am more than a regular consumer and quite a hoarder or what?

Anyway, let’s see what I got hiding in my drawers!

  • NARS Laguna Illuminator (it’s not an illuminator despite the name, it’s a glowy bronzer!)

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Face Palettes!

Today it’s all about the face palettes in my collection. In this part a I put all the palettes that has two or more face products. So a blush palette with a highlighter is included, and also face duos. Last year I remember that I said this was a part of my collection I would like to grow. Face palettes are so handy!

IMG_20190302_113318_967.jpg

First off this is my Benefit World O Blushes palette with three iconic blush shades from Benefit along with their Hoola bronzer. This is in a super slim size that is great for travel. I recently got some use out of this as I had it in my monthly makeup bag in March.

IMG_20190302_113126_815.jpg

Here are some of my duos!

  • ELF Bronzed Violet.
  • Wet N Wild Megaglo Contouring Palette – Dulce De Leche.
  • Colourpop Face Duo – Step Right Up.
  • I ❤ Makeup Bronze and Glow.

IMG_20190302_113058_805.jpg

This one is a drugstore favorite for sure. So if you are looking for a cheap but good contouring palette the Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette is amazing!

IMG_20190302_113349_991.jpg

The famous Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Glow is off course a solid part of my collection. So worth the hype in my opinion. the Lancôme Blush Subtil Palette Rose Flush has been in my collection for year! The bronzer is a bit on the small side to be able to fit a brush in it properly, but the blush is lovely.

IMG_20190302_113415_039.jpg

These are my Tarte Blush Book III and Tarte Blush Book IV. One is from last years holiday collection and the big round one is from 2017.

IMG_20190302_113446_076.jpg

My only makeup item from Duwop! This is the Duwop Cheek Dual Rubellite. The compact is what made me buy it. It’s shaped like a seashell!

IMG_20190302_113012_671.jpg

These are the face trios I have collected from Zoeva! I really like these sleek little trios and the quality of the powders are good. I would absolutely not mind grabbing a few more!

  • Zoeva Opulence Blush Palette.
  • Zoeva Rose Golden Blush Palette.
  • Zoeva Artisto Blush Palette.
  • Zoeva Sweet Glamour Blush Palette.

IMG_20190302_113036_592.jpg

The Anastasia Cream Contour Kit is my only one of that kind. I used to wear it all the time, but I completely forgot about it. Maybe I should try to get more into cream contouring again.

The Cali Contour Kit by Smashbox was a big hit for me when I picked it up last summer. Both the blushes, contour and bronzer shades are so lovely in this!

IMG_20190302_112943_462.jpg

The Becca Apres Ski Face Palette is one of my absolute favorites in my collection. Such a shame it was limited edition! A nice selection of blush, bronzer and highlighters. Everything is glowy!

IMG_20190316_221247_930-1.jpg

Finally the Youngblood Illuminate Palette. This is one I always love to wear during summer because of the nice and natural glow it gives my complexion. Also these are cream products which I really like in the warmer months.

The total count is 13 palettes (with 3+ shades) and 5 duos.  To me I think that is reasonable and I would not mind picking up more face palettes. I just really like a palette I can reach into and get several face products at once. Handy for traveling off course, not that it matters form someone who travel 3-4 times a year but still.

Do you have a favorite face palette?

Turns out I have 111 single blushes (including pans), and 55 pans inside duos or palettes. Leaving the total count of blushes to be 166 individual pans. The real number of blushes in my collection is a bit higher since I don’t count the ones I have in multi-use face palettes. In last years post I counted 140. I didn’t think I picked up so many blushes this year, but I guess the occasional blush here and there ends up being 26 in the end.

I think for this year I will try to be a bit selective about blushes, and only pick up those I’ve had on my wish list for a long time, and rather invest in more high end blushes if I do purchase one. After all I am in no need of building a collection because I kind of feel like I have what I need. But I would absolutely not mind picking up something that has been on my wish list for a long time (Natasha Denona I am looking at you) and also invest in more higher end. I would love to see more Hourglass blushes in my collection and Becca and Charlotte Tilbury I have been eyeing for a while. But I will try to not increase this collection too much, just add a few quality items here and there. After all I need to use all these pretty blushes!

Do you spot any of your favorites among these blushes? Or do you have a really good one that you think I am missing out not having? Let me know!

My Makeup Collection 2019 – Concealers!

I have plenty of concealers. I mean, more than enough for one person, but still this is a part of my collection where I don’t think I went that crazy. At least compared to my highlighters and eyeshadow palettes this collection is quite moderate. After all I do use these every day so having a few extra never hurts. Sometimes I want a matte finish, sometimes I want a light but brightening finish, and sometimes I need coverage but not matte, so I need my options.

IMG_20190211_184957_282.jpg

The concealers from left to right are:

  • NARS Soft Matte Complete concealer.
  • Tarte Shape Tape – Light
  • Tarte Shape Tape – Light Medium.
  • Chanel Correcteur Perfection Concealer
  • Bare Minerals Stroke of Light.
  • Smashbox Studio Skin 24 H Waterproof Concealer.
  • Catrice Liquid Camoflage.
  • Maybelline FitMe Concealer.
  • NYX HD Studio Photogenic Concealer.
  • Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer.
  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Wear Concealer
  • Maybelline Age-Rewind.
  • Guerlain Multi Perfecting Concealer.

IMG_20190211_185022_696.jpg

The total amount is 13, so I am actually down one from last years count. The only two new once I picked up last year was the NARS and the Makeup Revolution one. I had 5 concealers in my project pan this year (one is already done and therefore not here) so 4 of these will be gone by next year. I plan to repurchase two of those, and then I want to pick up the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer and the Colourpop No Filter Concealer both of which I finished last year and really liked, but did not pick up so far. My guess is that the collection will be about the same size in a year. At least four of these will be finished, and at least 4 new ones will be picked up since I plan to repurchase both the Maybelline Age-Rewind and FitMe when I finish them in my project pan, in addition to those from NARS and Colourpop. Oh, and you never know what else exciting will be released.

How is your concealer collection? Do you have any favorites that you see that I am missing?

XOXO
