I decided to have a *almost* make up tour, and show you how I store everything. I realize I do have a lot of make up, but this is almost 10 years of collecting. This is basically everything, there's a few lipsticks and liner's in my purse, a few creams in the bathroom, but it's all mostly here! I'm not going to do close up pics of everything, or give too much detail about absolutely everything, but I'm sure there's going to be some things I want to flap about :)
Don't forget you can click any of my pics to view bigger!
You can see the two big unit's on the right, that's all cosmetics. On the top, I have brushes and purfumes (there's also a Sephora LashStash box hidden under hanging necklaces). I have my earrings and hair accessories on my night stand as well. The boxes in the night stand are all nailpolish on the left, jewelry on the right.
I have a small addiction to purfume (and make-up, clothes, shoes, purses..). In the back there's some mini bottles packs like calgon, and lots of sprays, Victoria Secret Beauty Rush, Bath and Body Works, LOTS of cotton candy sprays (hehe). There's lots of crap on here I *could* part with.. To name a few favorites though, there's my Stella McCartney, Betsey Johnson, Calvin Klein Beauty, Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture, Fancy by Jessica Simpson and Dawn by Sarah Jessica Parker. I used to have more of the Britney Spears and Paris Hilton ones, but I used most of them up. I still love the Britney Spears fragrance though! As you can tell, I'm huge on sweet non-fruity fragrance! (like britney spears, jessica simps, betsey)
Not only are these something I couldn't live without, they are held by something I can't live without - Hello Kitty. Nothing made my dreams come true more than the HK MAC line. I'm all out of the lipgloss' (you wont see them in my drawer's, their in a keepsake box), and the compact mirror is STILL in my purse :)
So this is my eyeshadow drawer number one. The back compartment is silver's and blacks. You can see my Milani palette, that was my favorite, until my daughter dropped it. I use the Maybelline single quite a lot, "Silver Lining". Upfront is my golds and neutrals, which I have quite a lot of. I used to use the 3rd single in from the left, the Maybelline in "High Pearls" on my outer corners when I did gold's and neutrals, but it's since been replaced with using Too Faced Galaxy Glam pots. Lined up on the right, in the back there's the Avon palette I just got, liking the colours a lot! My Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips in "Vegas Strip" is probably my #1 used eyeshadow product. The two Maybelline quad's "Give Me Gold and Sunlit Bronze" is a recent fave. That old crust looking one near the middle, 2nd in on the right, that's my first neutral gold set! I still use it too. The black case beside it is just a quad of browns from Lancome, it was free. There's also some random little pots, and cheap shadows I've found.
This is my second shadow drawer, where I keep most of my singles. In front of the mini cases, there are my Rimmel and Too Faced "baked" shadows. The Rimmel's are creamy, and cake a bit, but are still fun. The Too Faced are amazing, so many different highlights on your eyes from these! It's all "crazier" colours in the front. As you can tell, I have a lot of the L'Oreal Shadows. To be honest, they are some of my favorites, very pigmented, and come in many different styles. The Lancome shadows are also some of my favorite, so holographic and pigmented! The back row is all "cream" shadows. I don't use them a lot. I use the Rimmel Colour Mousse in Splash quite a lot though. There's lots of Eye'Devotions as well, all $1 at dollarama.
This drawer is more random. The front container is "palettes" of all sizes that well, don't really match up on the eyes, and are random. I love the HIP shades from L'Oreal, and plan on buying more. The POPbeauty neon palette was from Sephora, and has very pigmented pinks, blue's, greens, yellows.. I also LOVE the Quo duo in Blue Lagoon, it's a shiney teal, and black with gold sparkle. The back row, I have some mini palettes that go together on the eye. There's a few Maybelline Eyestudio quads, and Quo duo's, that I love!
My current creams drawer (and eyeshadow!). The top left corner is creams I don't use a lot, mostly because it's winter, stuff with tanner's, super SPF's, and my Merle Normans set I've yet to use. The top right corner is loose eyeshadows. I use the Beauty Rush and Annebelle pots a lot. The bottom left corner is everyday creams. Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer, Neutrogena Wrinkle cream, Avon Solutions Tinted Moisturizer, Anew Ultimate Day creme, and Anew Clinical Deep Crease Concentrate. The bottom right is a few other things, deodorant, foot and hand cream, dry oil, toner. Off too the side you can see my big 80 colour eyshadow palette from Icing's, and my neutral and smokey eye palette.
I'll do a closer look at the back row of things, but the front is my powders, blush, bronzer's.. On the left side is my Lancome and CoverFx powders. Beside that, GOSH face primer. The two "lipstick" looking tubes are Meet Mark (avon) stick blushes, love them!! I also have my Bronze Booster by Physicians Formula (first bronzer I've found light enough for my skin!), and under it, the blush/bronzer 2 in 1. I also have a large stack of blush's off to the right (pink and palettes under), all Physicians Formula. I also have my Sephora brand Mineral Foundation + Setting Powder, not a huge fan.
I keep most of my shadow pencils in here, eye primers, and usually concelears and foundations (my foundation isn't in here, it's lancome). I have both the Smashbox and Urban Decay shadow primers. I love Smashbox, but the primer is oily and shit compared to the Urban Decay. Always choose the Urban Decay Primer Potion!! Middle container, eyeliners!! For solids, I have a lot of of the Bonnebell Eye'Definer's, as well NYC Flatliner eye pencils. My favorite all time solid liner, Lancome!! I also have a few of those twisty Avon ones. For liquids, I have the whole Marcell Lux Metallique line (reviewed here), and it's super pigmented, shiney, and gorgeous!! I have a few Meet Mark liner's, don't use them a lot, for the fact that they are super coloured. But when I do, high pigments, gorgoues colour, and long lasting! I also have the pink, blue and black sparkled Too Faced Starry Eyed Liquid Liners, my faves!! They have a super huge amount of sparkle in them, I wear them all the time!! For cream liners, I just use the Avon and Maybelline brands, but I love them. I always used Dior Style Liner, it was was crazy to find something that was just as good, after all these years and dollars! The third row is my mascara's. I have a lot, mostly from my Sephora LashStash box, but two are my faves. Those would be Covergirl LastBlast (the only thing from Covergirl I actually like) and Lancome Hypnose Drama. I've used Hypnose for yeas, Drama was a fave new mascara when it came out!
This drawer is mostly eyelashes. The whole back row is eyelashes. The left top side is super huge, coloured, sparkled, and "special event" eyelashes, the right side is everyday lashes. The bottom left is q-tips (for fixing make up uh ohs), sponges, sharpeners. The bottom right side is my brush cleaner, Boire strips, and eyelash glue.
This is my hair drawer! I don't use everything all the time. The bottom layer is actually just a ton of hair extension products. I have my new hairspray, Brocato, which I purchased (and blogged!) a little while ago, and is amazing. I also use Kaaral straightening balm and split end mender before blow drying, and dayly. I have a few other mouses for different looks, few different gels and putty's.
We're finally onto the lipstick/gloss container!! This top drawer is all treatments, balms, lip liners, plumpers. I use my CoverFX a lot, as well as my DuWop Venoms. Another favorite thing, the Tarte 2 in 1 (stain and gloss).
The next drawer is all gloss that's very pigmented, and more like lipstick. I love my Lorac holographic, although it's a little high colour to use a lot. I use the Benefit double and the Flaunt Beauty pot the most.
This drawer is of lipgloss' that don't have much pigment, and I use these quite frequently more. Faves: Lancome juicy tube, and the wands from Claire's. Although really, I use ALL of these, all the time.
These are my lipsticks. As you can see, most of them are from Avon. I am a representative, so I get a lot of them cheap. I mostly wear bright pinks and dark reds.
I never stopped loving BonneBell Smackers. I use these all the time! I love the yummy flavours!
Well, that's all folks. It took a long to write this, I started and got busy so many times, it's been saved on here forever, I figured it's time to finish! I hope you gals enjoyed the tour!
