Makeup Meme

Yes, that is a picture of my makeup drawer. This would be the exact same drawer Arwyn decorated with liquid makeup. Anyone who is not sans penis might want to stop reading now. Unless you are interested in makeup, then by all means, keep on reading.

Very Mom started this little project and I decided to play along. I've invested too much time in it to stop now! I know absolutely jack shit about makeup, but I sure do seem to have a lot of it. And this is after I threw some out during the Arwyn Decoration Project. Here are the contents:

  • Maybelline Shine Free Pressed Powder in Soft Cameo - I really love my powder. It may be only the second one I've ever tried, but why fix it if it ain't broke?
  • Clinique Stay-True Makeup Oil Free Formula in Stay Beige - I don't like the word beige. I tried all the cheapo brands, then decided to fork over the bucks. I'm not ecstatic with it, but don't feel like spending the time and money to try 15 different kinds to find something better.
  • Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 15 - for a long time this was the only moisturizer I could use that didn't make me break out. I have freaky skin.
  • Sonia brush from Target
  • Olay Complete Defense Daily UV Moisturizer - picked up from a sample basket at the dermatologist's office. Never been used.
  • Neutrogena green concealer - don't apply this to your lips as I did once when I was about 9.
  • Eucerin Extra Protection Moisture Lotion SPF 30 - picked up from a sample basket at the dermatologist's office. Never been used.
  • Purpose Dual Treatment Moisture Lotion SPF 15 - ditto on the sample.
  • Brow/Last Brush
  • Revlon lash curler
  • Covergirl pencil sharpener
  • Estee Lauder Automatic Eye Pencil Duo in Khaki
  • Estee Lauder Color Intensity Microfine Powder Eyeshadow in Khaki and Honeydew - Bubs got me these for Christmas one year when I was experimenting.
  • Loreal Wear Infinite Eye Shadow in Iced Latte
  • Revlon Fabulash Mascara in Blackened Brown - I like this a lot.
  • Revlon Sleek Cheeks Creme Blush in Pink Light - also purchased during the experimentation phase (this was 5 years ago?), even though I hate blush and don't think I need it.
  • Two La Cross tweezers
  • Maybelline Smoked Kohn Eyeliner in Cocoa Brown and Brandied Raisin
  • Covergirl Smoothers Eyeliner in Slate
  • Covergirl Perfect Blend Eye Pencil in Black/Brown
  • Mary Kay Eye Defining Pencil in Violet - violet??
  • Bath & Body Works Catch-My-Eyeshadow in Stardust - I love this eye shadow and they don't make it anymore
  • Max Factor Lasting Color Eyeshadow in Nude Scene - the color I wear the most. I bought this trying to emulate a friend who's eye shadow I had admired. It, of course, didn't look the same. I didn't even ask her what her's was, because I'm lame and didn't want her to know I was staring at her eye shadow
  • Revlon Wet/Dry Shadow in Thundering and Stormy
  • Cover Girl Professional Eye Enhancers in Fields, Grey Groove, and Charcoal Frost
  • Clinique Pair of Shades Eye Shadow in Seashell Pink - this came in a "free" goodie bag for buying so much Clinique product. Its very pretty.
  • Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Trio in Sunburst Duo and Rum Spice - kind of garish looking. Haven't ever used it. I think it was free also.
  • Aziza Night & Day - I think this was something super cheap from WalMart. I've kept it because I like the medium color.
  • Maybelline Expert Eyes in Almondine, Raisin Wine, and Creme de Cocoa - I like the raisin one the best. Very nice fall color.
  • Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow in Utaupia - so clever with the names.
  • Loreal Colour Riche in Red Rhapsody and Bronze - bought the red trying to find that illusive perfect red.
  • Clinique Colour Surge Butter Shine Lipstick in Crushed Grape - the fave of what I have.
  • Maybelline Moisture Whip in Plum Crazy
  • Ten Glass Finish Lipgloss in Quartz - cheapy from Target.
  • Vaseline Lip Therapy Advanced Formula - The only item in the drawer that I wear every day. And its ADVANCED. No stupid vaseline for me.
Maybe I should just throw the whole lot out and start over. A lot of what is in there is really OLD. I haven't been wearing makeup at all most days this summer. Its been really nice. I don't have to worry about it getting messed up in the heat, I can rub my eyes, and I don't have to remove anything at night. Is anyone still reading? Hello??

Wow, I can't believe how many were under "eyes"...!! I used to have a ton of Cover Girl and other similar brands, and my make up drawer was out of control. Then a couple of years ago I got hooked on Aveda, which can be expensive, bu their stuff tends to last forever and I love all of it.

Also, for lips, I love Burt's Bees Lip Balm. That stuff rocks.

Oh my word. That's it. I'm coming over and you're making me over, pronto. Also? Advanced Vaseline? Totally cool.
