June Empties

I've never done an empties post before because I wasn't trying to use up products. I always got so much new stuff that I rarely made an attempt to finish anything. Now I'm making the effort to use the backlog of products before getting new ones. I've also been going through my collection and getting rid of things that are expired or just terrible for me. I think for a while I'll have a lot of these kind, too.

Wet n Wild Fergie Newport Nights palette swatches

I've been making an effort not to buy a lot, but I did pick up a few things at the drugstore recently. One of the things that I got was one of the new Fergie palettes by Wet n Wild. There were two palettes on the display and I got Newport Nights, the lighter of the two.

This palette is definitely for someone who likes pale colors. The four main colors are very light, especially the top two. None of the colors are bad, but they (and the other Fergie palette I've tried) don't have the quality of the Wet n Wild Color Icon eye shadows.

I do like the palette and I think it's a good option if you want colors like these. If you already have colors like them that are good quality, then this will not be better than that.

June Ipsy Bag

Overall, I have to say that I like the Ipsy subscription. I didn't post last month's bag, but I liked that one and the one before that. I'm not as fond of this one, mostly because of the glitter eyeshadow thing, but I still think it's well worth the $10 a month. Sign up here* to subscribe to Ipsy.

My Lipstick Collection Part 3: Orange and Peach

Next is orange. This color group is one of those that's tricky for me because I can look awful in some orange. I particularly look bad in the Lime Crime Cosmopop.

Also check out the first 2 parts:  Black, White and Unusual Colors and Nudes.

My Lipstick Collection Part 2: Nudes

Up next are the nude lipsticks. I went through a period when I loved nude lipsticks so I got a ton of them. Unfortunately, I didn't always pay attention to the exact color so quite a few look really bad on me.

My Lipstick Collection Part 1: Black, White and Rainbow

As part of my efforts to work through the products I have instead of getting new ones, I started going through my lipsticks and sorting them by color. Mostly, I was trying to see how much of each color I had so I knew what I had no business buying more of. I'm embarrassed to say that I have way more than I even realized and even forgot that I bought some of them.

I have them broken down into quite a few color categories and this is the first one- lipsticks in black, white and unusual colors.

Shopping My Stash Makeup Basket for June

I've been feeling really unsatisfied with the amount of stuff I have in general and, more specifically, how much makeup stuff I have. Not that I want more... I want less. When I look at the drawers of products, knowing that I probably won't even be able to use it all before it goes bad, I get really anxious. I don't enjoy buying new products and, as I said in my last post, feel nothing but irritated by trying to find limited products.

Lately, I've been really enjoying watching makeup baskets, shop my stash, and empties videos rather than hauls and favorites. I think the makeup basket/shop my stash thing is a good idea and I wanted to do that to try to use up some products. I don't have every category in here, but I have a lot. Some are things that are on their last leg, some are samples, and some I've never or rarely used. Hopefully, I can do an empties post at the end of the month and include some of these products.
