Shop my stash has become fairly important to me, for those of you that don’t know what the premise of this is… It’s basically a way to realize if you actually like something that is sitting in your collection, or if you only keep it there because it feels nice to have a pile of make up that IF toppled could kill a small village.
These are the products I chose for last week with a quick explanation of how I feel about them, and if they are stash or trash.
Jeffree Star Androgyny Palette
SRP: $62.70 CAD Beautybay.com
STASH– This will live another day in my collection. I purchased this from beautybay.com on a whim, and didn’t regret it, however for some reason I was just not reaching for it enough. I tried it out for a week or so when it first landed in my home, then it went into my drawer, I moved and totally forgot about it. I was able to incorporate it into most of my looks for the week in one way or the other, and that is an important part of a good product. How versatile is it? That being said, I only own this and two highlights from JS, the highlights are definitely not my favourite, and I don’t love him as a person, and for no other reason than his typically shit attitude. (Pardon my Francais).
E.LF. Mad for Matte Palette
SRP: $7.97 Walmart.ca
STASH- This was just featured in my Palette Recommendation Tag so I am not surprised that I have no intention of getting rid of this. It’s the perfect mix of mattes that can pair with any other products. There is a mild amount of kick up when you put your brush in the shadows, but no more than say the ABH Modern Ren. Definitely less than that. The only reason this was even in the Shop my Stash was because I needed something to easily pair with the other products I had chosen.
MUFE Aqua Cream Eye Shadow
SRP: $29 Sephora.ca
Undecided : I love this product I truly do, it looks so beautiful on the eyes and really stays all day, I have it in a frosted pink and a muted green, and it’s honestly SO easy to use and make a look with…. but I never reach for it. Thoughts people? Do I just rehome it? Do I trash it? They are getting pretty old at this point. I can’t seem to part with them for whatever reason. Plus I never use cream shadow.
IBY Beauty Trio
SRP: $9 IBYbeauty.com
Trash– But not actually, I will be re-homing this for someone else to love. I did use it once, and I do like it, it’s a beautiful trio, but I have to be honest with myself that I just don’t reach for it, and have no real reason to, there too many dupes for this in my collection. Bye Bye IBY. Thank you Boxy Charm for sending this in out, it was nice to try the brand, and the quality truly is exceptional.
E.L.F Heart Breaker Cream Blush
SRP $10 No longer available
Pending Trash: I would like to say I can keep this, but I really shouldn’t. It’s a beautiful blush and I like it when I use it, but its a pain in the ass to use. I need a special stiple brush that I can never find when I want it. The product is old and starting to look dirty. I am also suspicious it’s making my skin break out. To the bin with you old blush I used to really love.
StarLooks Cream Shadow
SRP: $15 Starlooks.com
Trash- I want to love this and I just don’t. It swatches beautifully, but on the eye it cracks, and breaks down and falls all over my face. I believe this one came from Ipsy, and since I quit Ipsy well over a year ago, you can imagine how old this really is. I have the shade rose gold, and it’s a beautiful shade but I do not recommend, and this will be going the way of the trash wagon.
Naked Cosmetics Trio
SRP: $19.99 nakedcos.com
Trash: I never picked this up once, so yes it was in the basket, but it still didn’t strike my fancy. The pigmentation was definitly impressive when the original swatches were done, but again Boxycharm, this trio can be easily duped and its just taking up real estate.
Pantone Colour of the Year Eyeliner Teal
SRP: No longer available
Trash: I didn’t pick this one up once either. Not even once, I actually forgot this was even in the basket, and if that is the case I should be coming to terms with the fact that this isn’t for me anymore either. This was from a few years ago, and I had to have it at the time. The usage is probably close to 40-50X so I don’t feel too bad letting it go. It’s time, I’m 32, and sometimes Teal eyeliner just isn’t your jam anymore.
PUR Eye Polish in Velvet
SRP: $26 purcosmetics.com
Stash: I think I am going to keep this one, I don’t love cream eyeshadow but I was wearing this in my Jolie Beauty Bomb Dot Com Palette review and it was beautiful. So easy to use and work with, not to mention the wearability. This one is more a matter of I forget that I have it. So perhaps I should take it out and put it somewhere that I see it.
