Bought It, Forgot It | February 2014

Hi beauties! I’m so excited to share with you all the collaboration series Chelsea, from Tiger Love Beauty, and I have been working on for the last couple of weeks!

We had each separately mentioned on a few blog posts that we wanted to participate in a No Buy Challenge. 
Chelsea reached out to me and we began brainstorming right away. 

We wanted to show some love to some of our products that have been pushed to the back burner, while we are on a spending ban. We were inspired by Casey Holmes YouTube series, Bought It, Forgot It…where she uses items that she has “forgotten” about for an entire month. Hence our series name.

Chelsea and I will be doing something similar, we will go through our makeup collection and every week on Wednesday for the month of February, we will share with you all a face of the day post including our “forgotten” items.

Wish us luck on our No Buy Challenge!

This week, my forgotten items are:

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
Physician’s Formula Magic Mosaic Blush in Soft Rose
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey

Urban Decay Naked Basics | Since I have been trying new palettes, I have pushed my trusty Naked Basics palette to the very back of my makeup stash. I love this little thing, I can get any look with it, something simple for everyday or a dark, smokey eye. I have fallen in love with this palette all over again! 

Physician’s Formula Blush | I purchased this blush quite some time ago, my husband and I had gone out of town for a quick fun trip with some friends and I forgot to pack a blush! Being the blush-aholic that I am, I couldn’t go several days without a blush, so I picked this up. While I was rummaging through my collection, I found this under my pile of blushes…I had literally forgotten about this blush!

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain | As you all may know by now, I am obsessed with Revlon lip products! I have been loving the Coloburst Matte Balms, and since then, I haven’t really paid much attention to my other lip products. While cleaning out my purse, I found this lippie, I instantly knew I had to add it to this series. The last time I wore it was for a wedding back in November! You can see my FOTD post on that here

I am so glad I have found my long lost makeup items in my growing makeup collection. It really has opened my eyes to how much shopping I do! I think doing this series along with the spending ban will be very refreshing!

Here is my FOTD with my forgotten items!

  • I used Naked 2 in the crease and blended that in.
  • I took Faint and applied that all over my eyelids, making sure to blend in Naked 2 and Faint together seamlessly.
  • Using Crave, I used that too deepen the outer v and blended towards my crease a bit.
  • I took WOS and used that to blend Naked 2 and Faint some more.
  • Using Venus, I highlighted my brow bone and inner corner. 

I hope you enjoy this series and maybe get inspired to use your forgotten makeup items!
