The Make up inventory of 2020

Hi lovelies,

I was written to update on my makeup for you in January. So my plan for the year in terms of make up:

One fresh beauty products per month! Rather try to use up and enjoy my current items and panning them, specially my eyeshadows.

Firstly let’s see my makeup box and count:

I would not say that I have an enormous collection of makeup like in the lot of the declutter videos on YouTube, but I still feel a bit overwhelming of them so I will try to desize my collection in 2020 and only add 12 new items and of course saving some money.

I own:

  • 12 lipsticks,
  • 7 eyeshadow palettes,
  • 4 highlighters,
  • 3 foundations,
  • 3 blushes,
  • 3 mascaras,
  • 3 bronzers,
  • 3 eyeliners,
  • 3 lipliners,
  • 3 concealers
  • 2 faceprimers,
  • 2 setting powders,
  • 2 lip oils,
  • 1 face palette,
  • 1 lash glue,
  • 1 fake lash,
  • 1 lightening drop,
  • 1 single eye pigment,
  • 1 eyeshadow primer,
  • 1 lipprimer

So in total of 60 items… so my goal is to downsize it to 40 by mainly using up the current items I have. Also my other aim it to finally reach the total cruelty free make up inventory  by the end of the year

2 items are missing: my Lanolip oil and a Becca undereye corrector- I think I left them at work …

I just have to do a bit of decluttering now too, which would be:

The E.l.f. Concealer, which is broken so it is a bit too dry now + the color is not a match for me (fair is too dark), my everyday Trend it up mascara is just too old to use, finally my friend came to pick up my old MAC products, which I was gifted for her (2 palettes and a lipstick). (55)

I am on the way to panning this month:

Bobbi Brown bronzer, Nars Orgasm blush, The Balm: Mary Louminizer and using up my Chanel setting powder, The Body Shop Tint Nude BB, Trend it up Lip Oil, Estee Lauder Coral an MAC mini Chili lipstick. Of course I try to use only one eyeshadow in this month, which is my Tarte Tartelette in Bloomson palette.

So I can only buy 12 pieces of make up, so what would be if I would just buy them now: (I try to be realistic as I would need some replacement during the year for sure)

  1. It Cosmetics CC (replacement)
  2. Urban Decay Perversion mascara in mini (replacement)
  3. RMS beauty: Eye Polish
  4. Lisa Eldridge: Velvet Ribbon lipstick
  5. Fenty Beauty: Gloss Bomb
  6. Fenty Beauty: Sun Starlk’r Instant Warmth Bronzer
  7. Too Faced: Better Than Sex Waterproof mini mascara
  8. Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde palette
  9. Lilah B.: Divine Duo- Lips and Cheeks
  10. Charlotte Tilbury brown eyeliner
  11. Charlotte Tilbury lip liner
  12. Hourglass: Veil Mineral Primer

OMG it is such a huge wishlist, however it can be changed throught out the year.

Helia D

Gabor Zsazsa’s favourite skin care brand goes back to the 1980s, when they used sunflower oil as a base of their creams. D in the name is Debrecen, which is the 2nd biggest town i the country, located at the Great Plain. They still a natural plant-based and owns 9 patent.

Geek&Gorgeous:

Brand belongs to Helia-D in a collaboration of a Hungarian blogger, they made clinical-clean exfoliating products. I use the CALM DOWN version, which is for normal/combination for glowing skin, it is 4% PHA + BHA Liquid. It is even better than Paula’s Choice 2% BHA liquid (have  not tried The Ordinary yet), it is so gentle, but refine and calm the skin and the packaging is so handy and Gorgeous. Further more with every purchase they take  1 EUR to improve Hospital equipments with watsi.org. Cruelty free.

Ilcsi

This is the brand which my beautician use for ages, this is a real cult for professional use in Hungary.  I do not have them at home, but might buy it for the peak season of beauty salon. “Founded by ‘Aunt Ilcsi’ more than half a century ago, the Ilcsi name is synonymous with the finest, Hungarian super-natural skin care. This range is so fresh that it’s made to order for Cult Beauty – to guarantee the potency of the potent botanical active (the bulk of which are hand-harvested on Ilcsi’s own, ‘Certified Organic’ farm)! The Sour Cherry Gel Mask has accrued legions of devoted fans – astonishing customers with its unparalleled de-puffing prowess – and now it includes the addition of firming and nourishing Blackthorn. Discover the Hungarian go-to skin care brand, and witness your complexion flourish.”

  • Marc Jacobs- Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer: “It hydrates, smooths, and preps the face for makeup application.” all what I would need and the packing is so classy and stylish.

Foundation:

  • Chanel: Vitalumiere Aqua: “Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup SPF 15″I love light coverage like BB or CC creams, this is a water based foundation, which you have to shake before usage, although it is called sunscreen makeup with spf 15 it is not much protection in it, but can be ideal for a fresh Spring or Winter makeup. Why they put perfume and probpylparaben in it?

    • $64/30ml=1oz at sephora.com

Concealer:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Touche Éclat- “The original face highlighter and #1 essential for your makeup bag.” I only had dupes of this from NYX or Pupa or L’Oréal, it is so expensive but as I have tried my mom’s one (she always repurchase it) it is one of the best high end concealer (which is actually a highlighter)and under eye brightener…

  • Powder: I rather use a bonzer-highlighter combo

Blush:

  • Chanel- Joues Contraste: “Unique powder blusher imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture for easy application and subtle shading. Accentuate cheekbones for a youthful look. Softer tones around the eyes soften expression and rejuvenate.” Do not know the shade yet, because so much are so beautiful: In love- nice baby pink, Élégance- mauve pink ect.

Powder:

  • Guerlain- Météorites: this powder is just simply stunning and really nice to have it next to a matt powder for glowing days. Can not decide between the compact,voyage or the pearls. “Today, the Météorites hold the secret to Stardust technology – a light-creating polymer, which transforms light invisible to the naked eye into a pure and endless glow on the skin. A subtle blend of matte, rosy and radiant blue-toned white pearls, combined with corrective coloured pearls – yellow to counter redness, pink for freshness and mauve to catch the light – they light up the face in an illuminating and corrective halo to give endless radiance.”

EYES

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills- Dipbrow Pomade: it is a so big cult now, of course I want to try it like crazy. “Smooth application, waterpoof, smudge-proof, can be used as brow definer and as eye liner.”

Liner:

  • Kat von D- Tattoo Liner: Liners in my everyday make up to go, maybe cat eye is my signature of look, so far I want to try the most hyped back liner (Topper) at market now. I nearly purchased it last month in Bangkok at Sephora but there were out of stock of  black color…
    • $20/0,55ml=0,19 oz at sephora.com

Eyeshadows: that is the category which I would say too many good ones to choose and it is really hard to buy a real high-end palette in Hungary, that is why I only have: Mac eyeshadows in 4 or L’Oréal: La Palette Nude- which I wish to replace with a real good nude palette like Tarte or Urban Decay. Too Faced Chocolate palette is pretty but I think I would not like the smell of it and ABH- Modern Renessaince is just stanning. So what do you think ? Comment below your recommendation.

Mascara:

  • Dior-Diorshow: It is blonder and fuller the lashes and it has in brown and blue too with my favourite type of brush…
    • $29,50/10ml=0,33 oz at sephora.com

LIPS

Lipstick:

  • Yves Saint Laurent: Volupté Tint-In-Balm: its packaging is more that stunning. “A lipstick combining melting balm care with glowing sheer color”- tend to have a nude form them.
