Makeup Inventory: Random

I decided to show you guys my random products today. The items that are just in my collection that I don’t have a ton of. I intend of getting rid of this category completely. If it is something that I don’t really use or enjoy, I just want to use it up and get rid of it. I still have to show you all of my eye stuff, but I’ll save the best for last.

Samples: 21

samples

If I can use up all of these samples, I’ll be happy. I’ll also be happy with half of them left, too. I don’t like having too many samples open at a time, so I end up using makeup samples one at a time. I don’t have much to say about samples I haven’t used yet.

Concealers: 2

I would like to only have 1 open at a time, but I have two. I would like to use up the NARS and then focus on using up the one in my pallet. It is the skin colored one next to the bronzer on the second row on the right. It is a highlight, but it is more suitable for a concealer for me. I’m happy having two but I would like to only have one open at a time and one back up. I don’t use concealer everyday, so this will be a challenge to use up one by Jan.

Color Correctors: 4

concealer

I have the four on the top row: purple, green, peach, and orange. Purple is my most used along with the peach which I tend to add a little orange to. The peach/orange is great for covering up undereye darkness. The purple is great to lighten up shadows on your face. I’d like to hit pan on the purple one by January. I really want the Urban Decay Fluid Correctors and I will replace these with those once I use these ones up.

Brow: 1

This is my only brow product. My brows are already thick, so I don’t see the point in using brow products. I’ll use it up, but I doubt I’d ever buy a brow product in the near future. I want to finish this by January.

My eye shadow, liner, and mascara post is going to be big. I have a lot of eye products for a girl who only does her eye makeup on the weekends. Subscription boxes contributed to most of this category coming up. Stay tuned!

June Birchbox

I love the watercolor pastel box this month! It is very pretty and another one that I will be saving. I’ll be going through my make up collection to purge a few things. Is anyone interested in seeing that? I think I’m going to take pictures and do a post on it. I’ll probably bring it to work for a few friends to pick over. Danielle, when I do the post and you definitely want some of it, let me know and I’ll set it aside for you. 🙂

Anyways, here’s my June box, which I’ll let you know now I LOVE it.

Texturizing spray

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, 1 oz for around $5 USD

I love texturizing sprays, which I find are different from dry shampoos. I think they work better than dry shampoos. Even though, they technically are dry shampoo, I think they are a hybrid of some sort. I’m currently using Rusk texturizing spray, but I cannot wait to use this one as well. I see it all over Youtube, so I am happy to have my hands on this product. It will go into my beauty bin for now to use when I use up the Rusk.

Marcelle BB Cream in Golden Glow, 7 ml for $4.20 USD

This is an okay size to sample. I wish it was bigger though. This only has enough for two or three face applications. I like the glow that it gives the skin, but I would definitely powder afterwards. I powder after apply sunscreen. I like being glowy, not shiny/greasy looking. This stuff is expensive, so I don’t think I’ll be buying it anytime soon.

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask, 1 oz for $4.50 USD

As you can see by the picture on the right, this product is a welcome repeat offender. I love that it is now in a squeeze tube, which makes the product easier to use. This tube is enough for two to three masks for my hair. I do a mask about once a month, but now that I bleached it, I think I’ll do it once every week or so. This could be in July empties. I like this product and the scent. I won’t be buying it though.

Cleanser

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, 1 oz & 1 cloth for $11.32 USD

I’m so excited to be receiving these two products in my Birchbox. The potential of getting this product in my box is what made me sign up for it in the first place and now, I am finally sampling it. It is a brilliant moment for me. If I really liked this product, I could see this replacing my GlamGlow cleanser. Now, I just have to sample Emma Hardy’s Cleansing Balm. Anyone else love sampling highend products?! It’s an addiction of mine.

Benefit Gimme Brow Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in 1, 1 g for $8 USD

This was my chosen sample this month. It is also my first brow product EVER. Yeah, I never got on that train. I’m excited to try this product. I need to get my eyebrows threaded first. I’m hoping to get it done next weekend. This seems like a great product and I love trying out new makeup.

That’s my box this month!

With Love,
