My good friend Kelly has been asking me to take pictures of my makeup collection for awhile now, and I have yet to do it. I have also been trying to figure out what to do as my first blog entry...Then it hit me! Kill two birds with one stone. I have been a makeup addict my whole life, but it has become my main hobby/obsession in the past three years. My makeup collection is larger than some, and smaller than others, but it is mine, and I love it. Looking through the drawers and trays of bright pink blushes, cool blues shadows, Marilyn red lippies and lengthening black mascaras always make my heart skip a beat. I hope you enjoy looking!
The Lippies...mostly Mac, Benefit, Vincent Longo, and Besame. I also have a few Napoleon Perdis, Chanel, Lola and Stila products. Lipstick is probably my favorite cosmetic, because I love the way it changes your look so much with just one product. Pinks and reds are my favs!
This is the top of my makeup drawer...I keep my eye and lip pencils, my mascaras, and also all the products I use religiously. My daily must haves include primer (Clarins Instant Smooth or Benefit That Gal), foundation (studio fix fluid NW15 or Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous) and concealer (Benefit erase paste). I also need my powder (Benefit Georgia Peach or Studio Fix) as well as my eyebrow pencil (Benefit instant brow light) and highlighter (benefit highbeam). My blush , eyeshadow, and lip colour change daily!
This drawer has the rest of my face products...mostly foundations, powders and bronzers. It also has some random lip products (can you spot my hello kitty tinted lip conditioners?)
This drawer holds blushes...mostly Mac, Nars, Vincent Longo and Benefit.
More blush! I see Cargo, Maybelline, Vincent Longo, Almay, Stila, Boots #7, Lola and Kevin Aucoin.
Here are some eye colours. I have alot of cream shadows, most of them are Benefit, as well as a few Vincent Longo and Lola. I also have the Loreal HIP creme liners and Stila smudgepots. I have collected almost all of the Loreal Hip Shadow duos, as well as some single Nars shadows, Duo Nars shadows, Urban Decay and Milani shadows.
This drawer houses more shadows. Mostly Nars, Eyeko. Stila, Prestige, Rimmel, Lola, Revlon, and a few Mac singles from Style Warriors. I can't decide whether or not to depot them! Should I??
Here we have the rest of my eyeshadows. I have 4 MAC pallettes, some MAC pigments, Benefit loose shadows, Besame eyeshadows (RIP my loves!), Stila shadows and a few Clarins shadows.
The drawer of False lashes! I particularly love half lashes and just found Ardell accents at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $3.49!! I bought 8 pairs! I also have a few Mac lashes, regular Ardells, and a few pairs from the Japanese dollar store.
Nail polishes! I mainly buy drugstore brands..Sally Hansen, Borghese and Milani. I have been buying a few OPI colours recently...mostly OPI for Sephora. I picked up the shade Mermaid to Order and I love it! I also have some nail polish remover pads I picked up for a buck at the Bath and Body works sale...they are perfect for lazy days!
Finally I have two drawers of pallettes, sets, ect. Here we have Mac, Urban Decay, Too Faced, Benefit, Besame and Stila.
Here we have Cargo, Tarte, Lola, NYX, Victorias Secret, Sugar, and Benefit.
Woo! If you are still reading, I commend you! If you have any questions about a particular product(s) in my stash, please feel free to ask :) Now I must go get some beauty rest! zzzz
