I have officially become a trash collector, but weirdly enough I kind of enjoyed hoarding around this group as a reminder of what worked, what didn’t, what I can’t remember and would like to try again. This collection has been growing for a while and I forgot how much I love some of these products and want them back in my collection.
Covergirl Total Tease Mascara: I actually enjoy this for no makeup makeup days. It’s really natural looking and never gets clumpy. The downside is, it can transfer and crumble towards the end of the day.
Tarte Lights Camera Lashes: I wouldn’t consider this a holy grail but I did like it and would circle back to trying it out eventually.
Lancome Grandoise Extra Volume Mascara: This was great for glam makeup and definitely made my lashes look nice. It was kind of annoying to take off though. Again, I liked it and would buy it again but it’s not like a must have at all times in my collection.
Covergirl Supersizer Fibers in Blackbrown: Another nice no makeup makeup mascara that I actually started using as a brow gel.
Maybeline Lash Sensational: An overall nice mascara from the drugstore. Can’t go wrong with it.
Murad Nutrient Charged Water Gel: I have two backups of this and will probably never stop repurchasing.
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: An awesomeee product from the drugstore. It has a great tone of bronze and a nice satin finish. Would definitely buy it again.
Jordana Lip Liner in Rock N Rose: One of my favorite nude lip liners from the drugstore. The color matches almost every lipstick.
Urban Decay Primer Potion: I definitely notice a difference from when I use this product and when I try to go without it or use concealer instead. It works great for me and I already have a back up.
Benefit Gimme Brow and Anastasia Tinted Brow Gel: Honestly I like them both. I keep my brow gels in rotation but would buy them both again. The biggest difference I find is in the wand size. If you have thinner, smaller and more sparse brows, maybe use Gimme Brow as the wand is a lot smaller.
NARS Natural Radient Foundation: My holy grail. Already have a backup. This won’t be going anywhere in my collection.
Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Foundation: An old favorite I rediscovered. I am not sure if it is reformulated or just repacked but the new version is called the Sea Water Foundation. I LOVED the original and would be interested to try it again.
Marc Jacobs Perfecting Coconut Face Primer: Sometimes I loved it, sometimes I felt it made me breakout. Maybe I would be willing to try it again down the line but there are plenty of primers that I love with less of a price tag.
First Aid Beauty Coconut Skin Smoothie Primer: My travel primer. It was nice and hydrating. Not too much else to say but I would use it again.
Farsali Unicorn Essence Antioxidant Primer Serum: This in combination with the NARS foundation was magic. I am working through some other great primers but I would like to circle back to this eventually.
Vichy Dermablend Foundation: I used this back when I had really bad skin and acne. It has been a long, long time since I used it but I can say that the coverage was awesome. I am drawing a blank on the finish and how it wore but I’d be willing to try it out again, especially now with less skin issues.
Dr Jart Vital Hydra Solution: This felt amazing on the skin and definitely leaves it plush afterwards. Overnight did I notice super hydrated skin, not so much but the more immediate results were good. It is hard to make a full judgement on a one use sheet mask, that I have used one time but I would repurchase it and try it out again.
Let me know if you guys like seeing my junk and if I should hold on to my empties for another round like this. What are some of your go-to products?
Hope you guys are staying well during these times❤️
