The Makeup I should Use More Often





I, like many bloggers get dragged in to Superdrugs and Boots special offers and discounts, meaning we buy things for the sake of buying things. These items get pushed to the back of the makeup stash , and used very little. Here are five perfectly good examples of things I have brought and use very little. 

#1 Ted Baker Lip-gloss
I brought this, when it was on sale at Christmas time, last year. I don't really know what was going through my mind when I brought it, to be honest. Its bright red! I like red lips around winter and autumn but a red lip-gloss is a lot harder to pull off. It wasn't that expensive, as I got it half price, but still- I'm determined to wear this more, in the upcoming seasons. 

#2 MUA lipstick in Bare
For the price, this isn't that bad a lipstick, it smells pleasant and is quite a nice colour. However my main problem with this lipstick is the packaging. It doesn't go down all the way in to the tube properly, so the top as become really blunt and flat, meaning its near impossible to apply. I think I am going to have to depot it, if I want to get much wear out of it.

#3 Sleek in Baby doll
This is a classic example, of picking something up because there is an offer on. I picked it up in a 3 for 2, I ended up with a very blue toned pink, which does not suit my pale skin at all! If I am going to be completely honest, I am probably going to have to give this to my mum to use.   

#4 Natural shadow and blush glow palette from Barry M
This one is slightly cheating, I use the eye shadows in this palette frequently however the blush, not so much. Its a really pretty light pink shade and I must get around to wearing it more often, I don't have any excuses not too!

#5 Maybelline colour tattoo, in the shade pink gold 
Lastly, it is the Maybelline colour tattoo. I really like the formula of this product, but I just wished I had picked up a more wearable shade. They do last all day, but I really need to step out of my neutral eye shadow comfort zone and use this more often, before summer is up.  

Thanks for reading x

Let me know some of your makeup items, you need to use more of- is it any of these?

    1. Its a really nice colour, just not a everyday colour, for me anyway but they last a very long time so I suppose for a party, they would be great x

  2. The Barry M Natural Glow palette looks really nice, I love golden brown shades of eye shadows too! I think that the Sleek in Baby Doll, is for a really specific skin tone, I know that it wouldn't suit me at all, even though the colour is lovely x

    1. Yeah it is, unfortunately I didn't really look at the colour when I brought it, I only saw it online and the images there can be really misleading x

    1. Thank you, I have quite deep brown eyes, I think it suits me okay, its just quite pigmented so can look a bit over the top for everyday wear x

  5. That Ted Baker lip gloss looks gorgeous but I agree, it is harder to pull off a red glossy lip! I love the MUA lipstick in Bare, I haven't had the problem you've had so maybe it was a dud one:( I love wearing pink gold as a base with neutrals on top, it makes me feel more comfortable and gives a warmer toned eye!

    There are also quite a few pieces in my stash that I should use more often!

    1. Yeah I guess so, I need to try out more MUA lipsticks so I can do a comparison. I have never thought about using it as a base, so I may have to give it a go x

    1. Oh I didn't know there was a second palette, I may have to check that one out as I really like the eye shadows x

  9. I love the MUA lipsticks, they're so good for £1. My only problem is they smudge quite easily and aren't very long lasting, which is a big issue for me.

  12. Ive got a few palettes I don't pull out as often as I should, its more as they are stored in a drawer and my single shadows are easier to pull out!
