Empties and clearing out

Hi everyone!

So Glamour days are just on the corner, as I do not want to over purchase I love to have a look what I have in my wardrobe, makeup kit or in beauty. And of course throw away the empties, old makeups and creams, sell or give away to a charity (clothes).

Shopping on sales

Glamour days is a shopping weekend in Hungary, organized by Glamour magazine, where you can buy a lots of stuffs with discounting coupon, of course there is a lot of shopping malls do have some coupons of 20%, but at drugstore you usually have 50% sales on items with the magazines, and there are some products , which I only buy on these days in every half-year. I think this time I should figure out a budget to avoid impulse shopping.

Here is my clear out:

MAKE-UP I HATE

  • Maybelline: Master Strobing Liquid– honestly I do not like this product, even I used only a tiny bit, I am going to sell it
  • Bobbi Brown: Instant Full Cover Concealer- this is an expensive product,which I have used only 3-4 times, but I can not stand it under my eyes, too thick and the color which the artist gave me (SAND) really does not match. Try to sell

Make-up empties:

  • Bobbi Brown: BB Cream (Fair) loved it so much now I will replace my other fav BB: Clinique age defense BB in shade 2
  • Clarins: Eclat minute (07) I have already repurchased
  • Laura Mercier Foundation Primer-Oil Free: really love that primer, that works perfectly with Estee Lauder Double Wear, but I do not know where to repurchase it-so what shall I buy instead?
  • MAC: Prep-Prime Translucent Powder:really nice white powder, but nearly empty might will purchase an other brand’s translucent powder.

Skin care empties:

  • The Body Shop: Vitamine E sorbet: really love that lightweight cream, I think I will repurchase it. This is my go to daily cream, make up is so well to apply on it
  • The Body Shop: Tea Tree Night Mask: Tati hates it,  do love it, the skin feels so smooth and clean after the night, I tend to use only a little bit of it for my blemishes
  • L’Oreal: Pure Clay: Glow Mask: it is not a bad clay mask, but I think I will look for something else, which is a bit more deep cleaner clay mask.
  • Yves Rocher: Serum Végétale (I think it was) Eye cream it is a big no…

Oldies:

  • Clinique: Stay matt powder: I loved that powder, but I use it for 3-4 years and it is nearly empty, so I think I have to replace it- might will be an other one just I have to make a search on it.
  • Essence: All about Matt!: is a really good fixing powder from the drugstore, lasts ca. 3-4 hours,so I do not really like that I have to powder my T zone again and again during the day. I understand the hype it is probably the best in value and price but I tend to send more for a better one. I do not like its packing….
  • Beyu: Brow Powder: honestly I really love that powder, so much products, but I have it for 4 or 5 years so too old to use, unfortunately I have not seen this brand anymore at Douglas (it was ca. 17-18 SD).
  • L’Oréal: Color Infaillible: Pressed pigments in Sahara shade, probably the best and long lasting pigment in golden shade, it has a lot of product and after a 8-9 years of use I stll have the third of it. L’Oréal why discontinue this?
  • Bobbi Brown: Pot Rouge: Pale Pink is my go to cream blush, it is nearly empty, I have purchased like 2 years ago, but the product itself is 7 years old according to this production code… I think I have to repurchase it.
  • Too Faced: Better Than Sex– Waterproof travel size just forgotten of the photo of empties… also a really cool mascara which I love- same goes to MAC powder.
  • L’Oréal: Color Riche– J.Lo’s Nude is empty I loved it, but I have MAC Angel now, which is really similar to that.

CLOTHES

I always  clear out my wardrobe at season changing, but this year March was a way too chilly so… I will not describe what I will thought away items by items.

  • Oldies, which I have not used for a year
  • Never used/Used once
  • Occasion dresses
  • Torn, starched or items which need to repair

SHOPPING

This year I want to be more planned, so I have just cut the coupons, figured out my budget to avoid impulse shopping, checked the brand websites according to my Spring wardrobe wishes  and I might will shopping more online.

Stay turned for my haul!

My lipsticks

Hello everybody!

I am a big fan of lip focused make up, really like to leave my eyes natural and applying some mascara only and put some lip color on. Before you reading most of the products will be professional or high-end product, only a few of them liquid. I have collected from my bags together:)

Nudes:

Rimmel- Lasting Finish by Kate 03- Coral Nude: it is a matte, mauve pink with some brown, coral in it

L’Oréal- Color Riche J Lo’s Nude- sheer finish, so not long lasting, bit sparkling and really feminem nude

Bobbi Brown- Lip Color Sandwash Pink 22- that is my perfect nude, exactly my lip color, last 3-4 hours, pretty mauve pink nude

NYX- Lingerie Embellishment- was the perfect new nude color for me from 2017. It is not a real nude for me, but I love this solid  and extraordinary: purple/brown/pink nude

Pinks:

MAC- Angel: I was thinking whether is a nude or pink, but rather a baby pink on me. It is from Frost range, so slightly shimmery light pink.

Rimmel- The Only 1 Peachy- Beachy- Do not really use this color, because it is a very summer color and fits well on more sunkissed skin. It is having a really nice creme matte finish, color is a bright pink with peach.

Estée Lauder- Pure Color Coral Sun 69- it was my very first luxurious lipstick, still love that creamy peach/ coral pink, it is deeper than Peachy-Beachy so more wearable for me on summer time even at work.

Estée Lauder- Pure Color Envy Matte Uninhibited 409- one of the newest so luxy bright pink color

Bobbi Brown- Liquid Art Stick Lily- other bright pink, just bit lighter than Uninhibited and as it is a liquid semi matte lipstick the finish is totally different. Also a summer color for me.

MAC-All Fired Up- retro matte formula, so very dry and super long lasting bright pink (blue undertone) with a bit of red, that was my bridal lipstick so lovely on the pictures.

Reds:

Bobbi Brown- Luxe Lip Color Sunse Orange 29- it is an orange with a bit of red, beautiful bright color with creamy matte finish and long lasting

MAC- Ruby Woo- I do not think I have to describe this cult red color: retro matte with blue undertone

Bobbi Brown- Luxe Lip Color Parisienne Red 28- same really wearable formula as the other luxe lip, yellow undetoned red.

Essence-Velvet Matt 18- cherry red lipstick, matte but not as long wearing as BB or MAC

Too Faced- Melted Matte Lady Balls- Bright red matte liquid lipstick, deeper than Ruby Woo or Parisienne Red

Deep:

MAC- Fashion Revival- Matte formula aubergine color. AW color

Estée Lauder-Pure Color Love Rose Xcess 120- purple brown color, but not as aubergine as FR above and not as full intensive… (even it is seems very much the same on the swatches)

MAC- Sin- Classic Deep Brown Matte lipstick like my mom had in the 90s

Of course I also have two lip glosses and big fav Clarins Lipprotector 🙂
