I just wiped off my April eye shadow pick. lol. I totally forgot that I was wearing eye shadow. That is how comfortable it is. I also love the shade with my new hair. Anyway, it is that time again when I swap out my March makeup bag with my April makeup bag. I chose 5 makeup products every month and the bonus 6th product is always a perfume that I am trying to move through in my collection. Let’s recap on March’s bag:
I put a good dent in the perfume. It was full before and now I finished up a fourth to a third of it. I totally used up the sheer glow lotion. I have been all about the glowy look for the past three months now that my skin is more combo than oily. I am still working on the pore-fessional and I have to say, I am not loving it. It is okay, but as soon as I put anything from powder to foundation on top of it, it starts to peel up. I am so close to being done with that lip gloss! I am going to get it back out in the warmer months, because it has a really strong cooling sensation that I wasn’t a fan of this past snowy month. I love using the MUFE blush as an eye shadow. It is super pretty and easy to use for a one shadow look. I threw out the crayon when I dropped it on the bathroom floor at work. I couldn’t bring myself to sanitize and use it.
I have my Marc Jacobs Sugar, Sugar lip gloss that I have been loving in my April makeup bag. One application lasts until lunch at my work. If I am high maintenance enough to wear a liner underneath, I brought my Victoria Secret nude one to work with me. I am working on my deluxe sample of the Black Opium perfume that I got with my Sephora points. I have an Hourglass foundation stick and a foundation sample for when I use up the rest of my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla that I have been using as a foundation. It was too creasy under my eyes to use as an under eye concealer. I have a duo chrome cream eye shadow that shifts from silver to a yellow gold. I also have Benefit’s Highbeam if I still want a glowy look then I can mix this in or use it to highlight.
The point of my make bags isn’t to use up my makeup, although I do love it when I do. The point is to cycle through my makeup and make sure that I am using everything evenly. I am going to be starting to put my palettes in my makeup bag. I am always forgetting to add them! Four months in a row. LOL. It’s okay. I’ll choose my favorite one for my birthday month.

Wow, the items you chose for the next month are so so awesome. I think that cream eye shadow will look crazy good with your new hair! ❤ I didn't care for benefit's porefessional either. I like this concept a lot! I might end up doing something similar once I finish my project pan 'cause I'll be left with mostly full size items.
I meant almost full items, not full size items. My bad, hehe. 😀
Lol. Thank you! To me, this makes me feel more successful than a time limited project pan besides the year-long one. I want to be using my collection and if I find something that I do not like and do not care to finish, I declutter it. Not gonna lie most of my collection are from Ipsy, Birchbox, and Sephora beauty boxes. I cancelled all of my subscriptions because I rather buy the things I want than spend $10 and not be happy or have things I would have never chosen myself. There were some gems, but a lot of stuff that I never used.
