.anything two-wheels, travel, food, beauty, fashion and my personal musings.
So here it is – my biggest confession, admission and possibly, scream for help: I have a certain substance abuse problem. With beauty products.
As a recent makeup addict, collector and hoarder, I have started to purchase an excessive amount of beauty products. I can’t help that I am attracted to their colours, packaging and claims. This addiction started with beauty box subscriptions and a curiosity to try out new products.
In the last year, my stash had grown significantly. My “collection” has became an extension of skincare and other beauty-related ‘good deal/limited edition conquests’. I used to be a minimal makeup kinda gal. Like really minimal. I used to go out with a bare face unless I was going to work, then I would put on some colour, purely out of respect. Frankly, I don’t know if that has all changed because of age or because the deeper I delve into the world of makeup, the more I am intrigued by the products and effects they create. Now, I reckon my makeup stash is the equivalent to a guy’s toolbox or collection of tools. You never quite find the right sized spanner to do the job and there’s always a better drill out there.
I mean, I do try my best to get use out of everything in my stash and I (regularly) have started to purge my stash in a bid to ensure that I do not hold onto things that I know I will never use or will not use for a long time to come. Despite all this, I have, by and large, amassed quite a large collection.
Today, I just want to share a quick post with you that I have challenged myself to shop my own stash. “Shop My Stash” will help me rediscover all my purchases and hopefully, help me hit pan on some of my products through 2014. (So come end-2014, I will be able to purchase more when the holiday collections hit the stores :p)
I start this post with a look created with my Smashbox Wondervision Mega Palette. I hope you enjoy the look!
Do you have a beauty products addiction? What are some of the products in your stash that you would like to hit pan on?
Thanks for reading!
