I’ve been holding off on any new makeup purchases for some time now because I recently tried to organize my makeup (operative word: tried) and was appalled upon realizing I’ve accumulated a shit ton of products in two years time which I’m nowhere near using up in the next ten years or so. So while the high of having new makeup is extremely and utterly addicting (it even seems as if the feeling is what I crave more than the products themselves) — I think I’ve reached the stage where I need to re-evaluate my purchases and ask myself if I’m actually going to use the product or am I just sucked in to buying it because.. SHINY! PRETTY! BEAUTIFUL EMBOSSING! I’M SURE I DON’T HAVE THAT ONE YET! I also need to work on emotional purchases. Those times when I feel “down” a.k.a time of the month where everything just makes you feel irritable, stressed and sad and of course the only rational solution to induce some kind of happiness is logging in to my Sephora or Nordstrom account, start browsing through the What’s New, What’s Hot. And poof, before I know it — I’m entering card details. But then again, I’m not a robot and I can’t program myself to just switch that “THINK AGAIN, BEEE” button automatically because let’s face it — the lure of pretty, shiny things is just too strong sometimes. And since I’m in this mindset where every new makeup purchase needs to be justified, I’m finally setting a day to take photos of items I will have to purge from the stash. I know. A blog sale sounds counter-intuitive to my goal of being a “smarter” consumer —because letting go of old items means I’ve just cleared some space to buy new ones WOOHOO!! But that’s where my new um, “makeup journey”, actually begins or so I’d like to convince myself. Now that I’ve all the space to fill (thinking I will be able to sell all my purged stuff) — will I replenish it with SHINY! PRETTY! items I’ll touch every 6 months? Or will I be replacing it with just one or two new ones that’ll be of actual use to me? And maybe a vase filled with fresh flowers on the remaining space to use for blog photos. LOL
Hah. Such big words and promises. Let’s see what actually happens. Anyway, on to the most abused list!
The Almost-to-the-Pan ProductsChanel Quad in Spices. This was a hand-me-down from my mom way way back and I think it took three years for it to reach pan (not of daily usage, though). I haven’t used this in the past year but back when it was probably the only eyeshadow quad I had, this quad was all I ever used. And that was when I didn’t know about contouring the eyes, too – hence only used up the peachy and beige-pink shades. NARS Laguna. No secret that this is probably the only contour powder I’ve been using for two years now! I didn’t even want to try any other powders because this just works great for my skintone. However, since hitting pan, I’ve finally decided to try out another contour product – a cream one this time – which you can read about here. Tom Ford Spanish Pink. I think I used this everyday for two months a while back, but the bullet mess isn’t because of that, it’s actually because I dropped it on the floor while taking a photo of it. One of my favorite pinks, ever. Hands down. MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre. My HG (I don’t throw this around often but when I do, I mean it) when it comes to eyeshadow application. I don’t think I’d be loving eyeshadow now if I didn’t discover the priming wonders of this paint pot. It cancels out my yellowish eyelid tones as well as mattifies them. Will repurchase this over and over. MAC Dirty Blonde Brow Gel Creme. For perfectly defined brows, this is my go-to. I’m almost to the pan but sadly, it’s beginning to dry up recently. Ugh. I super love this, but am willing to try out something new after I finish this up or once it has dried out completely – whichever happens first. NARS Gina Blush. A light tangerine shade that just looks good with anything! I usually alternate between a few pink blushes, but I only have one true tangerine/peach blush which is why this is super abused. See how it looks on me here. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light. Ugh, by default this looks abused because I dropped the compact (which was still in the box!) when I purchased it in store. It wasn’t this damaged when it happened, only a slight vein of crack that didn’t seem harmless at all. I never dropped it again but the more I used it, the more the crack wanted to show itself. Sigh.
How about you guys? Any makeup items you’ve hit pan on / used up / dropped and cracked recently? Do share!
