Hi There! How are you doing?
Fall is almost finished and I haven't had the time to share with you what my makeup choices was this season for my personal makeup challenge. I wanted to catch up with that today, just as a way to document my progress rotating and using up makeup.
If you want to know the reasons that motivated this challenge, please, head over here.
This challenge is very simple: at the beginning of a season (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall) I will choose some pieces of makeup from my stash and post them here. By the end of that season I shall post how well (or not) I've done using them up, and propose new pieces for the following season.As a round-up for Summer part of this Challenge, I shall say I ended up tossing two of the cream eyeshadows which dried out completely. Three of the lipsticks literally melted during the Summer hot weather. I thought I should depot them and got a lipstick palette to do so, now I only need to find the time. The cream blushes I chose are so pigmented that it would take me forever and a day to use them up. However, I completely used up the bronzer part of the Dior powder!
Now, talking about Fall, I had taken the pics for this post so long ago that I can't remember when it was, but I suppose it was around mid-September. All the makeup pieces you see have been used many times since then but they are not quite near to be finished.
My picks for the Fall challenge were:
From left to right :
Catrice Matte Lip artist 010 Bare's Nude Soul
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil #721 Fuschia (discontinued)
NYX Jumbo Lip Pencil #715 Burgundy (discontinued)
NYX Soft Matte lip cream #08 Sao Paulo
Catrice Utimate Colour #150 Lovely lilac (discontinued)
NYX Matte Lipstick #16 Merlot
NYX Round lipstick 503 Medusa (discontinued)
MAC custom quad including (in clockwise sense starting on topleft corner)
- MAC eyeshadow BA9 Star violet
- MAC eyeshadow AA8 Honey Lust
- MAC eyeshadow A45 Beauty marked
- MAC eyeshadow A79 Kid
Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow 147 Caroube
Chanel Illusion d'Ombre #837 Fatal
This time I chose two blushes that I don't use as blushers at all. In fact the pink blusher I chose I use it mainly as subtle highlighter and the taupe one as contouring powder. As for the NYx Leopard bronzer I use it mainly as blush because it is way too pink/rose to be used as an actual bronzer on me!
These are my picks from left to right :
NYX High DEfinition Blush #22 Taupe
NYX Tango with Bronzer #04 When Leopard gets a tan
Essence Home Sweet Home blush 01 Knits for Chicks (discontinued)
