The Unloved #4


With makeup coming into my life on a weekly basis, it's easy to forget once loved products in favor of the newest trinket. A recent makeup clean out (you'll see and read more about this on Thursday!) had me sorting through my stash and uncovering a lot of products that have gone unloved lately.

I used to be obsessed with the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (full size $20) and used nothing else to tight line my eyes, but I've set them aside for a few months now and have been using a Stila offering instead. These liners produce the darkest line I've ever seen and last ages. I definitely need to throw them back into my makeup rotation or at the very least get a brown for more everyday wear.

More as just a general note, I've fallen out of love with eye shadow primers. I used to swear by them, but lately it just doesn't seem as important. Sure my eye shadow may not last a couple hours longer, but by five o'clock I'm ready to get home and take all my makeup off anyway. The extra step of an eye shadow primer just isn't in the routine anymore.

The Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipsticks from the Kate Moss Collection ($2.59 each) were some of my favorite matte lipsticks to wear back in the day when I was discovering makeup. Now I've hardly ever touched them and think it's time to part ways. They're just not my cup of tea anymore and my matte lip days seem to be behind me. I'm sure a friend will love them more than I am!

When I stumbled upon Essie's "Vested Interest" ($8.50) during my makeup clean out I couldn't believe that I forgot about it! A lovely denim green shade I used to love the death out of this. I'm sure it'll be back on my fingers in no time with fall peeking its head around summer. It's more of an autumn shade anyway.

What makeup has been going unloved in your stash?

xoxo Kayla
