Lip Product Collection 2018

Yup, I am finally showing you an updated makeup collection for 2018. I am thinking about doing another one in June as well, but since this one is coming out so late, I might do it in September instead before I start online college. I will be showing you what I currently have in my collection. In each section, I will tell you what I had last year and how many I used up since then. I am going off of the inventory that I did in July of 2017. This should be interesting and I really hope that I made progress on some of my goals!

Lip Balm: 10

lip balm

I currently have 10 lip balms. Last July, I had 13, so I used up 4 lip balms.  I apparently wanted to use up everything but 1. That did not happen for obvious reasons, so I will set a more realistic goal this time around. I would like to use 5 of these up by next year, so when I do the update in July/September, I want to have used up at least two. The Too Faced Lip Injection is newly added to my collection since the last update.

Low End Lip Glosses: 9

I said that I wanted to use up all of these B&BW glosses, but otherwise than that, never set a concrete goal on my glosses. I would like to use up 4 of these this year. A lot of the B&BW ones are halfway done, so I think it is a doable goal. Plus, the mini two of the right should be easy peasy as long as I use them. I’m over my B&BW glosses and the VS gloss got in a kit with a lip pencil and liquid lipstick, so that one is recently added since the last July update.

High End Lip Glosses: 3

I actually used up three lip glosses since last July and have added two more in this category. I have been savoring the MAC Trolls lip gloss. It is super pretty. The Anastasia and Marc Jacobs were the two newly added items. The Anastasia is hella pigmented and is a great 90s brown nude on me. The Marc Jacobs is in Sugar Sugar, which is currently everyone’s favorite on Youtube.

Bullet Lipsticks: 6

I have added 4 more lipsticks in this category and used up nothing. Well, I take that back. I used up one that is in my Feb update. I must have taken my pictures after I used that tube up. So, I really added 5 and used up one of the new ones I added to my collection since last July. I had no goal for my bullet lipsticks, because I didn’t have many. I would like to use up two in this category. I could get through two mini/deluxe ones for sure.

Liquid Lipstick: 6

I had 5 in this category last July, I used up one lip paint for the Feb Project Pan update, and have added two liquid lipsticks to my collection since then. The BareMinerals is almost done. I popped the stopper out of it, but got tired of the pink nude color. I will go back to it to finish it off this year. I would like to use up my other lip paint, since it is getting old. I will be happy just finishing up those two this year.

Crayon Sticks: 3

So, yes one of them is a lip liner. ūüôā I added two to this category and I want to use up two of these this year. I’d like to get rid of the brown and the orange and/or yellow side. If I go through the lip pencil with how many nude lipsticks that I own, that would be a plus. I’d much rather have a clear lip liner anyway.

So, my current lip total is 37, which is four more than what I had last July. This is mostly due to my subscription Sephora box. I would like to get down to 25 by next year. I hope that I can do it, but I would be happy just to be down to 30. I love doing my makeup inventory. It really puts how much I own into perspective.

With Love,

Selena

I Heart Drugstore Makeup!

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I saw this tag on Gracious Luck and since I am still down a camera, I thought that I would continue the tag trend. Tags are also really fun and I enjoy doing them, so if there is a tag that you want to see me do, let me know in the comments section below. She tagged anyone who wanted to do it, so here goes nothing. Jill if you are reading this, have a great vacation and make sure to have some fun in the sun! I hope you return well-rested and you will be missed by me.

1. What is your favorite drugstore makeup brand overall?

I really love Rimmel London, but I really want to try Physicians Formula. Most of my products are Rimmel, though and Maybelline. Honestly, I like my Rimmel products a whole lot better. I have a very small makeup collection right now. I have just gotten into being really passionate about it, so I don’t have that big of a stash yet. I really hope that changes, because I am obsessed and want everything in most stores that I look at. I can never justify spending a lot of money on makeup. Skincare on the other hand is my shopping weakness.

2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?

My favorite face product is actually a compact bronzer by The Body Shop. It is their Honey Bronzer in Light 02. I love using it as a finishing face powder. It gives me the best sun kissed glow without making me look orange or obviously tan. My favorite cheek product would have to be my Maybelline Bouncey Blush in Mauve. It gives my cheeks the best natural looking flush and I am all about being natural. My current favorite lip product is the NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair, because it is freaking amazing! I cannot gush about it enough. If you haven’t tried this product yet, you are totally missing out big time.

3. Least favorite product / product not worth the hype?

I have to agree with Gracious Luck on this one. Baby Lips is absolutely horrible! It dries my lips out and I keep having to reapply it over and over again. Other people must have hardier lips than mine, because this stuff does not work for me.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

Honestly, ELF is the best bargain for your money. I can buy makeup wipes for 3 USD and blush for a buck! I really find that the products are worth it on a whole, but every brand has those products that you aren’t crazy about as well.

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

I really love my Body Shop Blotting Papers. I feel like not a lot of people remember blotting papers when buying makeup. They make my makeup last longer and keeps the grease to a minimum. I feel like people always forget blotting papers, but they are so essential. I even use them to correct makeup mistakes.

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

Foundation is ridiculously overpriced for what it truly is: skin pigmentation. I buy it when it is on sale for a buy on get one half or free, because otherwise, it really isn’t worth the price. I couldn’t imagine buying designer foundation. I think that I would die or have aa heart attack.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

I am really bad at naming dupes! i ¬†don’t have any for you, except that the ELF palliate that comes ¬†with a blush and bronzer is a perfect dupe for the Nars Orgasm. Otherwise than that, I am totally clueless.

Sorry about the short responses, but I am feeling very dizzy due to my current medication. It makes me spell thing wrong as well. Please forgive me. By for now

With Love,
