The Junk Drawer of My Makeup Collection

The final drawer in my tallest storage unit is my junk drawer. This drawer has an insane variety of things. I have some eyebrow stencils, eyebrow razors, tweezers, the little sponge applicators that come in drugstore eyeshadows, I have the straps to strapless bras, I have empty eyeshadow pans for when I press loose eyeshadows. I also have some of the plastic sample jars that Sephora gives out when you ask them for foundation samples so that I can put the last remains of a product in there. And finally I have fake eyelashes. My favorite eyelashes of all time are the ELF Natural Lash Kit which you can get for $1 at Target. They look amazing. I also have some individual false lashes in the back and some various other brands too.

Makeup Collection Drawer: Mascara

My second to last drawer in the tallest tier of my makeup collection is my mascara drawer. I recently threw away some old mascaras so it's not as full as it usually is. In the front, I have a Laura Mercier Full Blown Lash sample. After that, the black tube with the silver lid, is a sample of the Buxom Lash Mascara. Next, in the yellow tube, is my all time favorite mascara, the Collosal Volum' by Maybelline in the waterproof version (this is the most amazing mascara ever and it gives major length and volume). Next, in the purple tube, is the Tarte Lights, Camera, Action! Mascara (this mascara is also pretty amazing, but I notice that my lashes fall and don't hold a curl very well with this mascara). Underneath the Tarte mascara is the Maybelline Illegal Lengths mascara. I find this is a pretty good lengthening mascara. I tend to layer it with a volumizing mascara. Next, in the orange and black tube, is the Covergirl Lash Blast 24 Hour Mascara. I find that this mascara doesn't smudge and it's not terrible to get off, however, my lashes don't look as good as they do with the Maybelline Colossal Volum'. After this, I have various samples of Lancome and Tarte Mascaras. The second to last mascara is the Revlon Photoready mascara. I like how this mascara makes my lashes look, but it smudges terribly so I tend not to reach for it. The last mascara is the full size of the Buxom Lash Mascara that I'm waiting to open when I finish the sample.

Makeup Collection Through Photos: Day 7.

The next drawer in my collection is my blush drawer. I have three blushes in the drawer that my previous post was about, and I have three or four blushes in another place (which I think will be shown two posts from now). I have some cream/liquid blushes in this drawer and also loose powder and then powder compacts. The liquid blush that I have is a mini Benefit Posetint. I have a liquid highlighter in here which is the Benefit High Beam. I used to use high beam a lot, but now I find that I like powder highlighters (specifically MAC's By Candlelight Mineralized Skinfinish), better. The cream blush in a jar that I have is the Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse Blush in Peach Satin. I'm not 100% sure, but I believe this is discontinued (check amazon if you want it). My stick cream blushes are Tarte and a mini NARS Orgasm Multiple. (I use a lot of sample size/mini's because I hardly ever use them up anyway so there's no point in buying the full size). My loose powder blush is a Bare Minerals blush in some sort of matte peach shade. I also have a Hard Candy blush that's very luminizing and could be used as a highlighter for darker skin tones. I have one Tarte Amazonian Clay blush and under that is the ELF blush/bronzer duo.

Makeup Collection Through Photos: Day 6.

The next drawer is just a drawer for products that I use a lot and products that didn't fit anywhere else. The products that I use a lot are the Revlon Photoready Concealer, Maybelline Brow Pencil, Rimmel Bronzer, and mini NARS Laguna Bronzer. The Benefit Brow Duo is in the back and I sometimes reach for that, but I tend to like filling in my brows with a pencil better. My overflow of blushes are in this drawer because I ran out of room in the next drawer, my blush drawer. I have a Hard Candy fox in a box blush, and two NYC Blushable Cream Sticks which I love. I also have a NYX single shadow in a shimmery highlight color that I am trying to use more often.

Makeup Collection Through Photos: Day 5

The next drawer in my storage unit is my face products. In the front I have concealers and luminizing primers. I have NARS, Milani, and Laura Geller concealers. I have Tarina Tarantino and L'oreal luminizing primers. Behind those are my foundations and my tinted moisturizer. I usually have more than this, but I recently used up a Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and two Maybelline Superstay foundations. Right now, I have Makeup Forever HD, Bourjois Healthy Mix, and Revlon Colorstay foundations. My tinted moisturizer is the NARS Pure Radiant. I also have some powders in another place that I will get to on another post.

Makeup Collection Through Photos: Day 4

The next drawer in my collection is anything with 4 shadows or less. I have ALOT of maybelline quads because they were easy to use to put a look together when I first started getting into makeup. I have some Wet-n-Wild trios because they're amazing quality. I also have a NARS duo which I'm obsessed with and use almost every day. I have mostly eyeshadow palettes which I will get to soon!

The next drawer in my storage is my single eyeshadows that are still in the packaging. I have some quads in the next drawer, I have some palettes, and I have depotted eyeshadows, which I will show you later. In this drawer, I have mostly infallible l'oreal eyeshadows and MAC. I also have Makeup Forever, Illamasqua, NYX and a couple others. I also have two MAC pigments in here. My favorite shades to wear are greens and bronzes.

Makeup Collection Through Photos: Day 2.

The next drawer in my makeup storage unit is my lipsticks and lip liners. I don't wear lipstick very often and I usually grab for the same two, which are stored somewhere else. I have mostly YSL and Revlon, but there's a MAC and some Maybelline in there too. I usually go for baby pinks or nudes. If you want to know more about a specific lipstick, just let me know!

My Latest Obsession

I've been wearing this anchor two finger ring so much lately. I was skeptical about the two finger part because I expected it to be restricting but it doesn't take very long to get used to. I purchased this from hot topic about a month ago and I can't stop wearing it. It's just the right amount of badass, so I can wear it with almost everything.
