Stash Review: Single shadows

A trend on youtube is gurus cleaning out their stash. I am a makeup hoarder. Do i regret all I have spent. Yes and No. The stuff I love of course not but there is a lot of deals and trends I spent money on that I do regret.

Right out the gate on this series there was nothing I wanted to purge. So this is a stash review of single shadows I own. The milani’s I just recently purchase and most of them have dual functions for me. I plan on doing a more in-depth post on this later.

And disclaimer I am far from bragging… I just like these kind of posts so wanted to do one myself. And I purchased all these items myself. So without further ado…

Current Favorites

This was suppose to be an August Favorites post but it’s way to far into august to now call it that and really they are current favorites not necessarily August alone. 😀

058
057036 Keihls eye cream. I found this in my stash and brought it back out. A Mary Kay sampler. The blush on me has lasted at least six hours and the eye shadows at least ten if not more. A look done using all the products mentioned. Disclaimer I purchased all these items myself. And my thoughts are always my own.
043
I don’t care for the new Milani Bella line as eyeshadows but these two colors as highlights are amazing!

044
Mally Perfect Prep under eye brightener. This stuff really is what she calls a face lift in a bottle. It can be used other places for a gorgeous effect like around the nose and on bridge.
047
Shany Brush I have been using for foundation. It is synthetic and not especially soft but it does a great job at buffing the foundation into your skin.
049
A famous summer staple for contouring. What else can be said? 😀
051
This brow gel is less expensive and just as awesome as my beloved Tarte Eyebrow Mousse. I want to get the blonde color as well.
050
I’ve been mixing these two foundations for a satin perfect color match flawless look.
048
These two lip combo items have been long lost cousins. They compliment each other so well. The lip stick is bare minerals my favorite brand for lipsticks.
052
Close up of the foundation color mixed and how stay put the brow gel is as this is dried and rubbed.
053
I find the Mally eye pencils to be even more creamier then Urban Decay’s and has the same longevity. It glides on and I want every color. lol

The last picture is the swatches of the rest of the products. It also shows the coloring of the foundations alone.

Are any of these your favorite as well or a not so favorite? Share below or you can do random comments and questions. Don’t forget my social media’s. I had a mini hiatus but I have been more active recently.

CVS Clearance Obsession

Alright I went back again. Third times the charm. This is my 50-75% off loot.

I love the age defying concealer so much I went back for more. I hope they are just being phased out at CVS.

All this came to about 35.00 and saved 89.00 per my receipt. Not bad.  I am hoping the Sally Hanson lips stuff is dupes for MAC lips prep and prime and Urban Decay’s clear lip liner I was not impressed with due to the price.

Any comments or questions please leave below :-)
