I’m definitely guilty of neglecting my products. At first, you rip it open and swatch away, but a few weeks later it gets replaced with the latest and greatest beauty release.
So in an effort to use what I have, each month I’m going to “shop my stash.” I’ll search through my beauty battle station and pull out three items that I have severely neglected, and commit to using them the following month.
The first one I promise to put to work is the NARS Blush in Unlawful. It was my first NARS blush, and it very much represented what I looked for in a product when I first started playing with makeup: mauve, fancy brand and sparkles! I have no reason not to use this blush.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Color Pencil in Boundless Berry is not only a product but a complete category of makeup that I’ve ignored. I have so many lip liners, but I’m too lazy to slow down and focus on drawing it on carefully. Hop to it, Shawna!
Last, but not least, is the Lorac Unzipped Palette. It was my first high-end palette and it’s such a “me” palette. So why did I stop using it? Definitely “shiny object syndrome.” With so many new palettes dropping, all I want to do is play with the latest release. But I’m confident that I can make a look I’m really happy with by using this palette.
I’m looking forward to making more “shop my stash” posts and giving my former loves some much-needed attention.
