Shop My Stash February 2020 Results and Monthly Empties

Hi All! Happy Saturday! I’m back with my February 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 February.

February may be a short month, but I did get lots of use out of most of these products!  The shades were perfect for February and I enjoyed using them!

IMG-2962

I made sure to use every shade of the ABH x Carli Bybel palette.  I really have enjoyed testing it out more.  It’s a good palette.  The mattes blend well and I really love a few of the shimmers.  I do wish that most of the shimmers didn’t have glitter in them, but they are pretty nonetheless. I also still think Jode and OA are so similar and I wish they both weren’t in the palette.  But, I can make some nice everyday looks with this and will be keeping it.

IMG-2961

The formula of the Dose of Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Marvelous Mauves is so creamy and pigmented!  This is a really gorgeous matte palette.  I wore it alone and with shimmers from the Carli Bybel palette (especially Aura).  I like this alot and will be keeping it.

IMG-2960

I wore the blush and highlighter many times this month.  They are the Nanacoco HD Pressed Blush in Shimmery Dusty Rose and the Makeup Geek Highlighter in Lit.  They are beautiful together!  I love them both and are keeping them both!

The Milani Keep It Full Nourishing Lip Plumper in Soft Rose is pretty, but it’s darker and more pigmented than I usually like in a gloss.  I’m going to keep it for now and we’ll see if I reach for it.

On to my empties:

IMG-2963 I had ten empties this month!  Mostly skincare and body care.

I already have backups of the Pixi Retinol Jasmine Cleanser and the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer.  I love both of those products!  Products I would repurchase are the MAC Fix+ (this was coconut scented), the Farmacy Honeymoon Glow and the StriVectin Peptight.

I got the QMS eye cream from a Boxycharm and liked it.  It’s very expensive, though, so I wouldn’t purchase it again. The Julep Boost Your Radiance Oil is nice, but I haven’t purchased from them in a while, since they ended their Maven program.  And the rest of the products were from my The Body Shop Advent Calendar.  I loved them and might be purchasing them in the future!


Another successful Shop My Stash on the books! I had so much fun with these products and am looking forward to a new batch of makeup in March!

Do you shop your stash or have a project pan going on?  I will be doing my first quarter project pan update at the end of March.

Ulta Haul — Treating Myself for Valentine’s day!

Hi All! January was a looong month!  I’m glad it’s over and we are well into February. So I decided to treat myself with an Ulta Haul. This is a Valentines to myself.  It helped that I had a 20% off coupon and a Christmas gift card I hadn’t used yet!

Here’s what I picked up:

IMG-2746

IMG-2750IMG-2760

I fell for this palette as soon as I saw it online, and love it even more in person! I’m excited that there are neutrals along with the pinks and purples.  It will be so wearable for every day as well as special occasions.IMG-2749IMG-2761

Sorry this is a bit dirty, but that’s how it came to me.  Maybe the trip was too rough for it! I ams looking forward to using it.  It’s so pretty and soft.  I think it will be lovely for the spring as well as now!

IMG-2747

I have just finished my Farmacy Honeymoon Glow AHA serum and I really loved it.  But I decided to try something new.  Lactic Acid is supposed to be more gentle but still resurface the skin.  Hopefully I’ll love the Ordinary Lactic Acid.

This Milani blush is new and I’m looking forward to trying it out!

IMG-2748

My skin has been really dry and I need a new body cream.  The Unicorn Fruit Body Butter looks like fun and smells really nice.  Plus, I just wanted a new bath bomb and thought this one seems calming.

The NYX lip liner is a favorite of YouTuber Allie Glines, and I really need a new nude one.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

So, there’s my haul.  Have you picked up any new makeup or skincare?

Shop My Stash — February 2020

IMG-2719

Hi all!  Happy Superbowl Sunday.  I live in Kansas City, so it’s a pretty exciting day! Plus, it’s time for my February Shop my Stash! Win win!

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 products that I have only used a few times, but I am excited to see how I really feel about them. I’ve picked out two palettes, a blush, a highlighter and a lip gloss.  You can probably tell that I chose lots of pinkish tones.  I love wearing these shades in February!

Here are the palettes open:

IMG-2716

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:

IMG-2720

Anastasia Beverly Hills x Carli Bybel Palette — This is such a pretty palette.  I got it last fall with my Ulta points (LOVE Ulta’s reward system).  The shades are gorgeous, but I haven’t used it more than a few times.  I’m excited to really give it a try!

IMG-2723

Dose of Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Marvelous Mauves — I received this in a BoxyCharm last year.  I really love the tones in the palette and the shades are so soft and buttery, so they blend so well!  This is an all matte palette, but I can use one of the ABH x Carli Bybel shimmers on top if I want to add some sparkle to the look.

IMG-2724

Makeup Geek Highlighter in LitNanacoco HD Pressed Blush in Shimmery Dusty Rose and Milani Keep It Full Nourishing Lip Plumper in Soft Rose

IMG-2725

I love the formula of the lip gloss, but it’s a bit dark of a shade for me.  I want to use it more to see if I like it.

The Makeup Geek highlighter looks golden in this photo, but it has a bit of a pink tint to it.  It’s pretty.  The blush is pretty, too. It has a bit of a shimmer.  I have been wearing matte blushes lately, so this will be a nice change.

——————————————————————————————————————————–

I’m excited about his month’s Shop My Stash!  Do you do a Shop My Stash or Project Pan to use up your products?

Shop My Stash January 2020 Results and Monthly Empties

Hi All! Happy Saturday! I’m back with my January 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 January.

IMG-2524

I’ve had a lot of fun playing with these products this month!  And I have decided to keep all of these products for now.

The Colourpop blush and Milani blusher are both amazing products! They are still fairly new to me, but I now have a good idea of how they perform, and I love them.

I’ve found that I don’t really wear lipstick any more, just liner and gloss.  I did wear my MAC Creme in Your Coffee lipstick once or twice.  It is nice and I’ll keep it, but I now want to go through my lipsticks and get rid of most of them. I did a pretty big declutter last year of my makeup, but I really want to pair it down to just what I use.  Would you be interested in seeing that on my blog?

IMG-2710

I used this palette a lot this month!  I tried every shade.  I’ve found that I like it okay.  Many of the shades have to be built up, especially the shimmers.  I am okay with building up mattes, but I like my shimmers to be soft and very blingy.  I do like the variety of the shades and I made a lot of varied looks with it.  I think I’ll keep it for now, but I might pass it on when I declutter.

IMG-2711

Urban Decay On The Run palette in Detour  – I really love this palette.  It’s the opposite of the Emily Edit palette in that it’s very pigmented and easy to use.  The shimmers, especially Dash, are creamy and are very blingy!  And the mattes are so easy to blend.I am very happy to keep this in my collection.

On to my empties:

IMG-2707

I had a lot more empties than I thought I would this month, but I have been trying to go through my products more.  So I’m proud of these.

For skincare, I finished the PIXI Jasmine Oil and the PIXI Collagen & Retinol Serum.  I’ve had the Jasmine oil for a while, but I concentrated on using it the last few months.  I love the scent.  I also liked the serum, which was unscented, but I don’t know if it did much to my skin.  The Glow Recipe Pineapple Bright Serum was very scented like extremely ripe pineapple.  I didn’t care for the scent  but I loved the serum to brighten my skin.  I would repurchase the PIXI Jasmine oil and the Glow Recipe. 

The Laneige Choco Mint lip mask was amazing! I got it in a holiday set with a full size of the berry and another little one.  I use the lip mask every day.  And I will continue to repurchase them so I always have one on hand. I also used up the Body Shop Fall For Pumpkin body butter I purchased in October and two hand creams, Juicy Pear and Mango, from my The Body Shop advent calendar.

For Makeup, I finally used up the Tatcha Silk Canvas Primer.  I’ve had it for about 18 months and have been working on using it up.  It’s okay.  It works fine, but was really expensive.  I don’t know if I’ll purchase again in the future.  I also finished my L’Oreal Lash Paradise primer, a deluxe size of the Too Faced Damn Girl Mascara and the Pop Beauty lip liner.  I would purchase the lip liner again, I loved it.

———————————————————————————————————————————

I had fun playing with the products in my Shop My Stash last month.  I’ll be posting my new one hopefully tomorrow.

Shop My Stash — January 2020

IMG-2525

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:

IMG-2524

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:IMG-2498

img-2497.jpg

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?

IMG-2499IMG-2500Urban 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.

IMG-2502IMG-2503

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.

IMG-2504

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.

IMG-2505

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!

img-2507.jpg
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!

My Beauty Favorites — Week of December 28 – January 3, 2015

I hope your new year is going well!  I’m excited about 2016.  I’m looking forward to trying and reviewing fab new beauty products.  Hopefully I will discover new brands and fun makeup, hair care, body care and skincare!

This week, I’m focusing on cosmetics I have been loving from Cargo, POP Beauty and Milani:

Cargo Cosmetics Venice Enchantment Eye Shadow Palette
Cargo Cosmetics Venice Enchantment Eye Shadow Palette

Cargo Cosmetics’ Venice Enchantment Eye Shadow Palette ($34 on sale for $27 on the Cargo website) — Inspired by the richness and romance of Venice, these 12 shimmer tapestry shades, from deep wines to burnished golds, are versatile and wearable “new neutrals” that flatter all skin tones.

Shade Descriptions:

Canal: Pale Yellow Gold

Magic: Light Brown/Pink

Carnival: Deep Burgundy

Murano: Medium Brown/Red

Gondola: Medium Red/Brown

Gilded: Medium Yellow Gold

Rialto: Deep Brown

Lido: Medium Gold/Brown

Lagoon: Olive Green

Bridge: Pale Beige/Gold

Palazzo: Dark Brown

What I think:  These colors are gorgeous and different from any eye shadow palettes I have seen lately.  I really love the green/red brown/gold combinations.  The shadows have great pigment and staying power.

POP Beauty Matte Velvet Lipstix ($16 USD) — An innovative lipstick texture coats lips in bold colour with just one swipe. Colour-true and pigment-rich, this stay-put lipstick is enriched with Vitamin E to protect & nourish.

POP Beauty Insta-Brow Sealer ($14 USD) — This stay-put grooming gel helps smooth and tame brows to instantly put unruly hairs in place. This treatment formula defines & conditions brows while holding the most POP-perfect brow arch.

What I think:  I love the nude, matte lipstick.  It isn’t too drying for a matte and it gives great color.  Plus, it lasts fairly long. The brow sealer works well with or without brow color.  It is nice to use when I am in a hurry and I just want to give my brows a bit of shape.

Milani Rose Powder Blush ($7.99  USD) — Inspired by the rose gardens of Milan and made with real rose metals, this is a blush that deserves to be seen!

Milani Baked Blush ($8.49 USD) — This silky blush with benefits can be used so many ways. It shapes, it contours, it highlights. Sunbaked on Italian terracotta tiles, it’s buildable from sheer to vibrant. Yes, it adds a cheeky pop of color to your complexion. Radiance and warmth, too.

What I think:  Both of these blushes are gorgeous and it’s surprising how affordable they are!  The rose blush is in the shade Tea Rose, it is great for a soft hint of blush.  The baked is in Bella Rose, a bright, pretty color.  A little goes a long way!

What makeup are you loving this year (so far)?

Beauty Products in Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2016 — Rose Quartz and Serenity

Happy New Year!  It is a new year.  I hope 2016 is starting off great for every one!

Do you follow the Pantone color of the year each year?  I do!  The fun thing about this is that we see the color (or colors) in makeup and other items all throughout the year.

Last year it was Marsala, and the color was prevalent in beauty products for each season.  This year there are two colors — Rose Quartz and Serenity.  These colors are so different from last year’s, they are very soft and pretty.  I think everyone can wear them in some way to bring soft color to your look!

New Milani Eye Liners for Fall

Summer makeup is so easy. You don’t need a lot for a fresh look that is perfect for the season. But fall makeup is a different story.  When the weather turns cooler, and the fashions become more bold, the bright colors come out of the makeup cases and on to our faces!

Milani has introduced two new eye liners that are perfect for fall.  Eye Tech Liquid Eye Liner and Infinite Liquid Eye Liner offer bold lines and bright colors, and even though it is not quite fall yet,  I have already begun having fun experimenting with them.

Eye Tech Liquid Eye Liner ($6.99) puts the control in your hands.  This pen-style liner boasts a water-based formula that has a “flow thru system” and a felt-tip applicator for a steady line in one stroke.  It goes on incredibly smoothly and you can get more than one look from it. The first time I tried it I was going out with friends, so I did a thick cats-eye line on my top lashes. I have also drawn a very fine line at the base of my lashes to for a more natural look.  It is available in black, brown and charcoal.

Infinite Liquid Eye Liner ($5.99) is a long wearing liner that boasts a waterproof formula that lasts up to 24 hours.  This comes with a very thin brush that you dip into the product and apply. Once you apply it, you have just a few seconds until it dries to correct any mistakes, because it STAYS ON!!! My daughter applied the blue liner (Infinite) on her friend and it took a lot of makeup remover to get it off! You know that if you put this on in the morning it will stay on all day! It is available in 5 dramatic shades: Infinite (the metallic electric blue),  Endless (metallic purple), Eternal (golden green), Forever (golden bronze) and Everlast (black). My favorite is the Forever, it is so pretty and wearable for day.

Visit www.milanicosmetics.com to learn more about these and all of their fab products!
