I finally got around to organizing and cleaning out all of my makeup, so I decided to take some pictures and share them with you guys. I apologize in advance for the poor picture quality, I didn't have the best lighting.
I just bought the green glass that holds my brushes today at Anthropologie. I hope it will keep them much cleaner than letting them sit on the counter.
Bare Minerals is the only foundation I will use, and I love their 'Mineral Veil' too. The purple stick is Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer in CIA, which I love, and the black stick is Boots No. 7 radiant glow concealer, which I also love.
All of my blushes and bronzers.
From the left: NARS Deepthroat, Discontinued Benefit color, Lola Cosmetics Geisha Glow
Smashbox (not sure of the color name, but I got this full size blush totally free! Score), Chanel 'Reflex', Benefit 'Georgia'
Smashbox O Glow ( I hate this stuff, I'm not sure why I haven't gotten rid of it yet), Almay Glow Healthy in Light (the only brozer that doesn't make my pale skin look orange!), and Cover Girl cheekers in 'Pretty Peach'
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "She has too many mascaras, those can't all possibly still be within the 3 month window", and you're right. Some of them are much, much older, but I still use them. It'll come back to bit me some day with a wicked eye infection, but I can't bring myself to throw them away.
From the left: L'Oreal Lash Out Curled, Maybelline Lash Stiletto, CoverGirl Lash Blast, L'Oreal HIP Ultimate Collagen, Boujouis Volume Glamour, Shu Umera Fiber Xtension, Neutrogena Weightless Volume, and finally Sherani Protein Mascara
Starting with Lipstick Queen Oxymoron in 'Minor Crisis', then Schweppes orange balm (do not reccomend this, it's hard and not very moisturizing), Korres Pomegranate Lip Butter (love), Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip balm, L'Oreal HIP Jelly Balm in 'Delectable' (I really love this stuff, it give plenty of color but is really moisturizing and smells awesome, like cream soda), Aquaphor Healing Ointment, and MAC Tinted Lip conditioner in 'Miss Bunny' in the center (this was a limited edition a few years ago, too cute not to buy, but I think they still have similar products).
Bare Escentuals Buxom lips in 'Melonie', Benefit Her Glossiness in 'Next Question Please' (discontinued), I have no idea what that brownish gloss is or where it came from (just being honest), Benfit The Gloss in corsage (my favorite lip gloss of all time, recently discontinued, I ordered four to keep on reserve), Benefit The Gloss in Kiss Me and No Peeking (also discontinued), Bobbi Brown lip gloss in Tangerine, Lola Cosmetics lip gloss in Ballet Slippers, then two Smashbox samples in Pixel and Catwalk
Estdee Lauder Color Fevershine in 'Tempt Me' (Came as a GWP, but I love it), four Mary Kay lipsticks so beat up I can't even read the names anymore, ditto with the NYC lipstick, then Benefit Silky Finish lipstick in 'Skinny Dip' (a really great color and texture, I recommend this line), and finally CoverGirl lipslicks in 'Daring'
All of my nicer eyeshadows (I have a bunch of older drugstore shadows that don't get much TLC from me, so I'm not going to post them)
I bought these Smashbox eyeshadows in a box set a few months ago (I think it was called 'Rapture' or something similar), and I really love them all, but there are too many to name individually!
The Hard Candy eyeshadows (which I think are sadly now discontinued) are Peppermint Patty, Caramel, and Cotton Candy. The Urban Decay shade at the top is Maui Wowie (which is my favorite shadow color), beneath that is Smashbox 'Flirt', followed by Stila special edition 'Acapulco'.
GWP Estdee Lauder shadow palette. I love using the darker shades as eyeliner.
Bourjois Kohl and Countour in 'Bronze Imaginaire', CiCi 'Beige', Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencils in Yeyo (how appropriate), 1999, Zero, Bourbon, and Stash (my favorite eyeliner ever), Arbonne Eye Pencil in 'Envy', L'Oreal Voluminous eyeliner in 'Black' (this one has a tip like a marker). The pot at the top is MAC fluidline and I'm not sure of the name, but it's something like 'Forest', and you can't tell from this picture but it's very dark green.
Other miscellanous eye/brow products. Benefit Speed Brow (which I use when I want to darken my brows to look more dramatic), Benefit Eye Bright (which I love on the inside corner of my eye), cult favorite Urban Decay Primer Potion (I honestly don't get the fuss, I can't get it to do anything right for me), Benefit shimmer cream in 'It was the Perfect Alibi' (discontinued), and Maybelline Great Lash in clear, which is absolutely necessary for my eyebrows.
