Seeing as it's been about a year since I originally pledged to start using up more of my stash, I've decided to see if I've actually stuck to the resolution..if I have then it's nothing short of a miracle as I've only ever been able to keep one resolution in my whole life.
The products were as follows..
Bobbi Brown liner too much love but also because the Jade one took a bit of work. The purple one also dried out but I brought it back to semi life and have been using it as a liner for the lower lashline. If anyone knows how to properly bring it back to its former creamy existence, let me know.. The black is yet to be used, I should really pull my finger out and start using it incase it goes the same way as the purple..
These have been used a lot since I made the resolution. I use the liner right at the bottom (Stila Topaz) on a daily basis as it makes my eyes look bigger without being too stark against my skintone. I tend to use the purple ones whenever I want to make my eyes look made up without putting much effort in. The No7 one comes out as a dark purple and the Stila one is lighter. The turquoise one is hard to wear to wear at work as it is fairly bright but it's one of my first choices on a night out..
Being the good beauty blogger I am, I have swatches..
Then there's my beloved Stila Noire palette. When I first bought this, I bought blind. I got home and saw how light the colours were and my heart sank, thinking I'd never get any pigmentation from them. How wrong I was! This palette is probably the only one I have where the pastel shade comes out the same colour on my skin.
The original Sleek palette..I loved this back in the day. Now I'm not reaching for it so much. Mainly because when I first had it, I didn't work where I work now and I could get away with wearing bright eyes to work. Now it's mainly used for experimenting and party wear. I use the black and navy as crease colours but that's about it..
I love 17. Their products are on the whole, cheap and well worth the money. The only product of theirs I didn't get on with was their felt tipped liner but apart from that, I love everything they do. Their shadows are pigmented, smooth and cheap.
This is the only product that I haven't really used since it was last featured. I don't know why that is, it is really nice. I think it has to do with the faff factor, I have other highlighters which are just easier to use. I do reach for this when I have the time to sit down and do my makeup properly and am going on a night out but apart from that, it stays in the back..
Anyone kept their resolutions from last year? Got any new ones? Anyone failed already?
