ELF Best Friend Eye Shadow Duo and other ELF Goodies

This no-buy I set for myself is downgraded to a low-buy haha.  Obviously, I love makeup, so let’s be real and give makeup a bigger space in my life.  I’m still being careful of the colors and products I choose.  It’s all about that balance 🙂  Anyway,  I recently ordered some things from ELF, and I am so excited about them because they seem really good for us pale princesses.  I’m probably most excited about about the new ELF Best Friend Eye Shadow Duo because the colors look promising and duos are easy and quick to use!  Read on to see my thoughts.

Use Up that Makeup! 2017 Inventory and Thoughts on Decluttering

evil kermit shopping

Saw this hilarious evil kermit meme floating around 😀

I kind of didn’t want to do it, but I think it would be useful to post the inventory I recently did of my current makeup stash and what my goals are in terms of numbers.   I was hesitant to post these numbers because I am embarrassed, but hey, I should be open about this because it will keep me accountable! My goal is to use up that makeup!

So here it is, a snap shot of my current inventory as of 4/1/2017.  As you can see, it’s a very classy looking index card that I laminated with packing tape.  This may be a huge collection to some or a small one to others, but for me,  it’s too much.  My goal numbers are to the far right.  They’re what I’m aiming for after decluttering the makeup that I want to donate and using up what I have left. Once I start getting close to panning things, I’ll probably step it up and do some project pans, hopefully within this year!  I l.o.v.e other peoples project pans!  There is something inexplicably satisfying about seeing the silver pan at the bottom of a product.use up that makeup Continue reading

Shopping my Stash, Enjoying what I have! The April Makeup Basket

Recently Bobbi Brown had their Friends + Family sale where everything was 20% off.  Of course, I jumped on that sale and ordered some goodies online.  It’s the same percentage off as the big Sephora VIB sale in the fall, so I did not think I would get a better deal later. For quite a while now though, when I buy new makeup, I always feel  conflicted because I know I am spending a lot of money on makeup, and I know I do not need the new makeup.  So as I order more makeup online (although I love Bobbi Brown, I really do), in the back of my mind, I am thinking, What am I doing?  It’s like I am caught in this cycle of buying new makeup, then seeing something else that is new and promising in the masses of advertisements and youtube world, buying more makeup, and then forgetting to enjoy what I already have.
