Hi All! I’m back with my May Shop My Stash results! I enjoy dipping into my collection and using products I haven’t used in a long time, or just haven’t given much of a chance.
My rule with this is if I don’t like the item after the month, I will move it out of my collection to make some room and let someone else enjoy it!
You can check out my first Shop My Stash post for May. Here’s a photo with the palettes open:
I continued my allergy issues this month, and didn’t wear as much eye makeup as I would have liked to. So my number one used product was the Smashbox Cali Contour palette!
I love this palette! Especially the bronzer and powder shades. I also used the lighter highlight and the blush a lot. This is such a great product to complete my face makeup. If I take a trip this year, I’ll take it with me!
Towards the end of the month, my allergies are getting better. So I did get to wear my eyeshadows. I would say I wore the BH Festival palette the most. It has such a variety of colors and I was able to create colorful looks and neutral looks with it. I also used most of the shades on the Morphe x Jaclyn Hill Vault Armed and Gorgeous palette. It’s a nice palette, but the metallics aren’t as buttery as the BH Cosmetics ones. I am going to keep all three of these palettes.
I didn’t wear the lipstick or eyeliner as much as the other products. I found that I didn’t care for the lipstick. I don’t wear this type of shade that much and it kind of feels drying on my lips. I am going to re-home it. The eyeliner is a great formula, but I don’t wear eyeliner that often. I am going to keep it, though. It’s such a pretty shade.
This was a pretty successful month!
On to my May empties:
I had a lot of empties this month! I used up makeup wipes by IT Cosmetics and Ariul, a Korean Beauty brand I found at CVS. They were both nice. I used them mostly for removing swatches. I might purchase them again. I actually think I might to a K Beauty haul this summer at CVS and maybe Ulta.
The Merle Norman cleanser is like a scrub. It is such a nice exfoliator. I have a lot of cleansers in my stash, but I might repurchase this eventually.
Same with the Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. I might re-purchase it once I go through the creams that I have. It’s so hydrating! The Your Good Skin day cream was oily on my skin, so I won’t re-purchase it.
I loved the Nanacoco Outlash mascara! I have a bunch of new mascaras waiting to be used, but I would buy this again.
I love the Jergens Wet Skin gradual tanner. I need to either pick this up or the original formula. The C.O. Bigelow body wash was nice, but I don’t know if I will pick it up again.
Are you doing a Shop Your Stash or Project Pan this year? How’s it going?
