Sometimes, we should consider throwing things out of the window. Or at least, onto our waste basket. Or if you’re charitable, to the ones who might need them more than you do. In my beauty arsenal, I’ve given a lot of stuff already to a family friend (mom’s village friend) who isn’t scared to rock bright orange lipstick in her 50s (bless her!). So to prep myself for a little spring cleaning I’ll be doing once school ends, here are some that top my list:
1. Jordana Lip Cream in Mocha Creme — nude lipstick that has gone too far. Seriously, it doesn’t suit me at all and I might give it to a darker-skinned friend.
2. Etude House VIP Girl Lipstick in PK006 — a cool-toned lipstick that’s way too Nicki Minaj for my liking. I’m up for cool tones at times (hello, L.A. Passion in Matte Pink Rose!) but this just doesn’t work on me.
3. Max Factor Lasting Color Lipstick in Flame Coral — a frosty coral shade that makes me look older than my 23 years. Enough said.
4. Rimmel Blush in Apricot — this worked when I first used it but as time passed by, the pigments somehow disappeared & I’m now left with pale peach sheen. Not the color I am going for.
5. Garnier Light Face Powder in Ivory — too cakey for my liking and there’s no oil control, at all.
6. E.L.F Translucent Mattifying Powder — I was expecting translucent but anyone can clearly see the powder it leaves behind. And it’s too pink-toned for my skin. It mattifies, albeit for an hour or two only.
7. Physician’s Formula Mineral Correcting Concealer — what was I thinking about buying a product that was made for Caucasian skin tones?
FYI, that weird peach color beside the Etude House swatch is the Rimmel blush.. and that’s swatch-ed heavily. The Flame Coral looks delish there but in real life, I don’t think my mom’s friend would even consider it.
