Shop My Stash: February Lip Products

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

I’ve been watching a lot of makeup declutter videos and have been inspired to look back through my collection of products and see what I need to be using to get the most out of what I’ve spent money on before it expires! Lipstick is one of those products that I am very tempted by but when I think of how many lipsticks I use regularly out of the ones that I own, I start to regret purchasing so many. While watching decluttering videos, I started seeing products I wanted to try and I just can’t buy more without at least using some of the ones I’ve neglected and can’t part with. So I’ve decided to ‘shop my stash’ and focus on using some products that I really need to use before their expiry and I’ve decided to make a post monthly talking about how I’m going with it! The idea isn’t to use products up, necessarily, although I’d like to. The idea is just to use the products and work out whether they’re worth hanging on to. I’m hoping to reignite some passion for certain products, especially now that my preference seems to be changing, yet again! I hope that you enjoy reading these posts!

Top 3 Red Lipsticks for the Holidays

Hi guys, gals, and non-binary pals!

One week to go until Christmas! I can’t believe it! I’m so excited because it means that once Christmas is over, the crowds will start to disappear and we’ll just have regular foot traffic at work and I can relax. I almost wasn’t going to post this week at all because I’m working so much but I’ve found a way. For this lipstick post, I’ve only included traditional, bullet lipsticks because I find liquid lipsticks messy and awful to wear when you know you’re going to be eating. Reds are already dangerous around food but at least bullet lipsticks are manageable. So, without further ado, here is my top 3 lipsticks that you should consider wearing this holiday season!

3 Underrated Beauty Products

Hey guys!

Today I wanted to discuss the products that just don’t get the hype that they deserve. I pride myself on talking about products that I deem worth the money, especially for someone who has lacked money and had to be a relatively smart consumer when it comes to makeup, an ‘unnecessary’ expense. I hope that you find this post helpful and maybe encourage you to try some stuff that you maybe didn’t think to bother with!

June Favourites!

Hey guys, gals and non-binary pals!

Today I wanted to share all of the things that I enjoyed through the month of June! I actually can’t believe that June is over. It is REALLY feeling like winter now, which I’m not that big a fan of but it does mean that once we’re over the coldest part of the year, we’ll be on to the delicious warm weather!
