In a previous post I was showed my excitement to finally open some brand new lippies from my collection.
I picked out all the shades I couldn't wait to swatch and use daily.
Well, it did not really work out that way...
I only opened one, the Clarins Lip Perfector and have only use it a hand ful of times. I leave it at home. Why?
Why aren't I playing with my lovely new goodies?
Because I felt guilty...
How can I open and use all of these, when I have so many already opened items??
So I put the caps back on ( notice I did not swatch anything) put them back in their boxes, back in the drawer, and stared at my desk to see what I could use next.
Items I previously adored that moved to the waist side.
I "Shopped my Stash" and arose to a combination I am utterly in love with.
Tarte Cheekstain in Flush and Ample Pink Plushglass
Tarte's Flush is a very nice blue based red stain, but on me it can be a bit too blue toned and almost have a streak of fuscia if I am too heavy handed, yikes!
I decided to to it as a lip stain.
It was a bit strong for daytime, but a lovely sheer red. I added Ample Pink (one of the best products I ever purchased from MAC, and highly recommend ) to tone down the color
I was left with this very romantic and girly pink lip, perfect for everyday!
I have been wearing this combination non stop.
Though I am excited to finally break open some of my new items one of these days, I am enjoying using what I have and finding new ways to love old products.
Do you go back and try to form relationships anew with forgotten products?
