Makeup No More

Happy hump day! How is your week going? Mine is pretty, well if we put it in my husband’s best friend’s words – shnazzy (is that how you spell shnazzy? I hope so!)

First of all, let me share something with you:

– Working in retail turns you into a mean, spiteful person, who constantly wants to make fun of other people, especially customers. So let’s all try and be a perfect customer to each other shall we?

– Working in retail turns you into a helpful and compassionate person, who is supportive and loving of his coworkers, so lets be that coworker to each other!

– Sometimes helping each other pays off, today it paid off in:


Another thing that’s been on my mind today and honestly for a while is


Here is why:

And this is how it’s all organized in and on my dresser:

Now being the geek that I have been this past week, I came up with some numbers. So my collection includes:

5 Blushes

3 Powders

2 Bronzers

2 Highlighters

1 BB Cream

1 Tinted Moisturizer

1 VitaZing

1 Foundation

11 Liners:

– 7 gel

– 1 liquid

– 4 pencils

10 Mascaras:

– 1 Primer

– 1 Clear

– 1 Blue

– 7 Black


– 1 Lipliner

– 6 glosses, plus whatever is at work (about 3, I think)

– 2 chubby sticks

– 4 lipsticks

2 Serums and 1 Primer (I know these are mainly skincare, but they have snuck in the pictures somehow)

5 Concealers:

– 1 Brightening

– 1 Dark Circle corrector

– 1 Acne corrector

– 2 regular ones

1 Eyeshadow base ( 🙂 )

34 Nailpolishes

4 Shimmer Powders

6 Eyeshadow singles

23 Eyeshadow Palettes, 10 of which include blushes, bronzer and/or highlighters, then 5 of these include lipsticks and glosses

Now you know why I am going to stop buying make up. I don’t know how long it’s going to take me to use those things up, some items will run out/expire faster than others, but the goal is to use up as much items as possible 🙂 And I will definitely keep you updated!

Also, please no judgement on my collection, it is what it is 🙂



PS. If you want to learn more about any specific item, or for me to post swatches and reviews on any of these products, please leave a comment below 🙂 Also most of the brands are listed in the tags cloud!

Birchbox goodies

Getting my Birchbox yesterday was a nice surprise, since the delivery system told me not to expect it until the 14th.

Opening it I kept saying in my head: Please be good, please be good!

And it was, at least I think so.

I tried some of the products today, I was really excited about the liquid eyeliner by Stila, which came in an amazing blue color! I am not a huge fan of liquid eyeliners to be honest, I am more of a gel kind of girl, but this one was so easy to apply, and yes, it smudged a little, but I got it off right away, so that wasn’t an issue. I am also wearing the BB Cream that came in the box, and it’s nowhere near the one from Estee Lauder!

Overall, I think Birchbox is one big gimmick and I am going to unsubscribe today 🙂

Have an amazing day everyone!



Итак, вчера мне пришла моя первая коробочка Birchbox (на подобие Elle Box, Glam Box, etc.) – на самом деле она пришла мне раньше, чем я ожидала – ждала я ее 14 мая, а не 11!

Фото того, что было внутри – выше. Скажу одно – когда я ее открывала, то повторяла про себя – лишь бы она оказалась хорошей, лишь бы она оказалась хорошей! Ну и вроде так, ничего!

Сегодня я уже попробовала некоторые из продуктов! Больше всего я обрадовалась жидкой подводке от Stila. Обычно я не покупаю жидкую подводку – пользуюсь гелевой, поэтому было интересно попробовать данный продукт, особенно в таком красивом голубом цвете! Я также нанесла BB Cream на кожу лица, и скажу честно, что для меня самый лучший продукт из этой серии – это BB Cream от Estee Lauder!

Скажу одно – мне кажется что эти все коробочки полная чушь и развод на деньги! Пойду отпишусь!

Всем отличного дня!
