Primer: Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas primer and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut primer Face: Covergirl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation. I think I have the lightest shade in this collection, definitely made for more melanin rich peeps. Measurable Difference Concealer Collection. We received this in a Boxycharm box three years ago and I’ve kept this since then, still plastic wrapped. I love how well this product performs! I used it for contouring, bronzing and concealer Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Powder for under the eyes and NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop powder for all over ABH Contour Kit powder Smashbox Bronze Lights Warm Matte Colourpop Interstellar pressed blush Marc Jacob’s Gilty O!Mega Glaze All-Over Foil Luminizer NYX glitter primer for the lid area where I applied the shimmer shade Shadows: Tempting/ Flame Game/ Red Alert/ Power Play/ Trance @nyxcosmetics Fill and Fluff in Espresso Tarte Big Ego Mascara Kylie Cosmetics Madeline
The NYX glitter primer made a big difference in how the shimmer shade applied and how long it stayed on!
After spending a large amount of time trying to figure out how to organize my collection I realized I’m in desperate need of a no buy.
A small look into what I’m dealing with 🙈
I’ve always had a habit of overspending and needing to complete collections but this year I’ve become overwhelmed with what I have and the thought of having things to go bad before they’re used.
Being realistic though, I’m setting a low buy for 2020 instead. I’m working to start now, in November, so I don’t quit cold turkey.
I started by unsubscriping from all makeup and skincare emails, if I don’t see it I won’t need it, right?
Next, I’m handing my cards over to my boyfriend. I know the temptation is too strong for me to stop myself so I’m removing part of the temptation by cutting myself off financially.
Third, I’m going to focus more on following people who are also on no/low buys and focus more on panning.
Next, I am keeping my Ipsy and BoxyCharm subscription, there’s no way I could go without ANYTHING new lol.
The last thing is I’ve set a goal for myself. Since I enjoy the perks I get from being Rouge at Sephora, I’m going to save up for some luxury items to purchase during the Rouge sales, limited to two sales a year. This way I can keep my Rouge status and finally satisfy my curiosity regarding some of these high tag items.
