Hey all! I hope your 2019 has started off well!
This year I’m trying something new (again). Last year I did four quarterly Project Pans. This was the first time I’ve tried this and I learned a lot. Especially that skincare is easy to use up if you use it everyday and makeup is not! I have so much color cosmetics that i need to use.
So, this year, I am going to do a Shop My Stash each month. The products I’m going to choose will be color cosmetics that I have forgot about or just want to use more. I probably won’t use anything up, but I need to play with more products in my collection.
I’m not going to choose foundation, concealer or powders. This year I’m going to try to just purchase what I need in base products when I run out. It took me a long time to use them up in my pans last year.
Here are the products I will be focusing on in January:
I’ve chosen two eyeshadow palettes, a sculpting palette, a blush and two shades of the same lip product. Here’s a close up of each product. If I’ve reviewed them before, I’ll include the link.
Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette — This was in my favorites of the year. I think it’s the prettiest and most color diverse palette that I bought in 2018. I purchased this in the summer and used it a lot when I first got it, but I haven’t really used it much since.
I usually do a bronzey look with this palette and want to experiment with the blues, greens, purples and pinks!
ColourPop You Had Me At Hello — This is such a pretty plummy-neutral palette. I got it last year around this time and used it, and then put it away. It’s time to give it some love.
I want to experiment with some of the gorgeous metallics and shimmers. I think it will compliment the Born to Run palette, too, if I want to use shades out of both for one use.
tarte tarteist™ PRO glow highlight & contour palette — I received this in a FabFitFun box this summer. I used it a couple of times, but I haven’t really given it a fair chance.
I love the sculpt shade and some of the lighter highlighters. I think I will get good use out of this!
Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush Powder Blush in Hush Blush — I received this in my March 2018 BoxyCharm. It’s such a pigmented blush that I never really used it. I like sheerer, glowy blushes in the spring and summer. I think it will give my some much needed color in the winter. If I really don’t like it, I’ll pass it on at the end of the month.
BUXOM Cosmetics PillowPout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder in Cuddle Me (Rose) and Cozy Up (Mauve Nude). I should have swatched these, but they are pretty similar in color. I reviewed the entire collection this summer and really liked them. I’ve been using up glosses in my last Project Pan, so I haven’t been using these. I will probably wear them alone and with a gloss over them.
So there’s the items I am going to try to use this month. I will be posting an update on how it went. I will probably included it when I post my February Shop My Stash so stay tuned!
Have you done a Shop My Stash before? How did it go?
