Hi all! It’s time for my first Shop my Stash of 2020!
I’m always excited to play with new (again to me) color cosmetics that I either haven’t used in a while or haven’t used much at all! My goal is to get more use out of the products I have and to see if they are something I want to keep.
This month I have chosen two palettes that I have barely used and a blush, bronzer and lipstick that I just purchased in the Black Friday sales. I usually don’t choose brand new (to me) products, but I really want to try these out.
Here are the palettes open:
So many pretty shades to play with! I have already used them today and loved playing with something I haven’t tried in a while.
Here are close ups of the products:
Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit The Wants Palette— I purchased this in June of 2019 (on sale at Ulta), and I haven’t used it since summer. Most of my palettes have less shades then this, so it’s a little intimidating when I open it. I used it today and I kept adding different colors of shimmer on my lid (Cupcake, Top Story, Eve Rose and Pizzaz). They do all work together, but I need to calm down and know that I can use some shades for other looks this month, lol! Do you have that problem with larger palettes?
Urban Decay On The Run palette in Detour — This is such a pretty little palette. And the blues definitely give me winter vibes. I received this from Urban Decay in 2019 and am exited to play with it. The formula is gorgeous.
Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush in Enchanted — This warm pink blush is so fresh and pretty on. It works so well with cool and warm looks. It’s a more matte blush, but that’s what I currently like.
Milani Silky Matte Bronzing Powder in 01 Sun Light — I also love matte bronzers. This one is new to me and very light. But, I can build it up and it’s so soft and natural on. This is perfect for the winter when I am more fair.
I wear lipgloss more than lipstick, but I have bought a few lipsticks last year that I need to use. This is the MAC Lipstick in the Cremesheen formula. The shade is Creme in Your Coffee— a creamy mid-tone pink brown. I love hydrating lip formulas and this one is very nice. I’m looking forward to using it!
Here are swatches of the bronzer, lipstick and blush.
I’m so exited for this month, and this year! I’m hoping to use more of my stash, and purchase less. I’m also doing a new series that I will be starting soon — I will be reviewing 20 of my palettes this year that I haven’t reviewed yet. And I might do a Project Pan. I’m still thinking about that.
Are you planning to use what you got this year — or is it spend, spend, spend (like I did last year)? LOL! Let me know!
