Hi all! It’s time for my December Shop My Stash! I’m looking forward to the holidays.
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 one palette that I have barely used, if at all. And one palette that I used a lot last year at holiday time, but haven’t used much since. Plus a fairly new cheek palette and lipsticks that I haven’t played with in a few months.
Here are close ups of the products:
The Urban Decay Elements Eyeshadow Palette was their holiday palette from last year. I got it last year for the holidays and used it a lot then. But I haven’t really touched it since (I really have too many palettes). I’ve already used the browns and purples, but I’ll didp in to the greens, golds and pinks for the holidays. I don’t know about those blues…we’ll see!
The Anastasia Beverly Hills Sultry palette — I just realized that I never reviewed this palette. I got it on sale earlier this year, I think. And since it is no longer for sale, I can’t link it. I opened it up and realized how stunning it is! Today I used Birch in the crease, Twig in the outer corner and under my eye, Rose Quartz on the lid and pearl in my inner corner. So gorgeous! I will be using this one a lot! I might combine this with my Tati Beauty palette for a holiday look!
This is the Ofra x Madison Miller Miller Squad Midi Palette. I got this in my September Ipsy Glam Bag Plus. It’s very pretty.
Here’s a swatch:
The highlighters seem like they would be too dark for me, but they do work. The left one is a little more pink and the right one is little more peachy gold. The blush is a pretty matte rosy pink. I think these shades will be perfect for the holidays.
Sorry these are messy! They are the BAREPRO Longwear Lipsticks in Peony and Spicel They go on very creamy, but dry down matte. They are pretty on their own or with a gloss over them. Here’s swatches:
They are pretty on their own or mixed together. They also work nicely over a lip liner.
I’m really excited for this month! I have already started using all of these and intend to use them as much as I can. I do have two new palettes (hauls coming), but I will use these, too.
Next year I hope to shop less and use more of what I have. And, I think I’m changing my Shop my Stash a bit. I might add complexion products and make it every two months instead of monthly. What do you think? Any other suggestions? I’m up for a change.
Do you do a Shop My Stash? How do you do it?
