MAKEUP PRODUCTS LACKING IN LOVE

 
We all have those days when we rediscover our favourite mascara of 2011. In fact, back then I was only 12, so my favourite mascara was most probably my mothers current favourite, of which I had ever so kindly 'borrowed' without her knowing. Anyway, my point being that recently I feel like I have neglected half of my makeup collection. I don't know whether the reason for this is because, in general, I tend to wear less makeup, or if it's because it had been stashed away at the bottom of my makeup bag. All the same, I delved deep into my drawers and re-fell in love with some old time classics.
 
The first two products are the Maybelline Gimme Brow and a Mac lipstick in the shade Syrup. This lippy was my first ever Mac purchase from the good old 2013 (yes, that is a big thing to us girls). It's actually a lovely deep, mauvey-berry shade (the website claims it's a cloudy pink), however this has not been accurately picked up by the camera at all! Fabulous. You will have to make do with your imagination, or better yet, I will link the shade here. 
 
Secondly, I have neglected my Gimme Brow eyebrow brush for a few weeks now, but this is due to my acquired love for investigating new brow products. (Yes, I did purchase Brow-Archery from Soap and Glory, yes I did fall in love and yes, expect a blog post regarding that very very soon). Anyway, now it's the summer holidays, and I cannot be bothered to properly make up my face every morning, I run this through my brows a few times and I'm good to go. *lazy hannah*
Some of you may be puzzled as to what the purple packet, in the picture above, encloses. I will put you all out of your misery and reveal that it is infact a four pack of eyeshadow primers, which I found in the bottom of my Naked 2 palette box. How have I only just found this? Well, here's my logic. I was super excited to start using my Naked 2 palette, the primers got pushed aside and forgotton about. EIGHT months later, they have been recovered, and I am super excited to start using them.
 
Last, but not least, my Eyeko eyeliner has not been used for a good six months either. Possibly because I can never be bothered to usually apply eyeliner, or possibly because the last time I attempted to use this product I got so frustrated because hardly anything refused to come out of the nib. Nevertheless, six months later this eyeliner is doing me justice, so much so there's a possibility that it could make it's way into being used in a future makeup look.
 
Those are the four products I am going to try and make an extra effort to use more. What products in your makeup drawers are lacking in love?

  7. Fab post, I have to agree you always end up finding products you used to love and have neglected for some reason. Soap and Glory’s brow archery is amazing so looking forward to reading your blog review :) I love the little samples of the UD primer potions :)

  9. I love going through my stash every month to rediscover products and I also have a basket to place makeup products that I will go through for the whole week. This way nothing gets forgotten. I have been wondering about the Maybelline Brow Drama, have read mixed reviews on it.

  13. I am definitely guilty of buying tens of foundations and lipsticks, forgetting about the ones I usually use when a newer and shinier one comes along, and then re-discovering the old ones months later!! I must say, it's actually quite nice as it feels like you've been beauty shopping all over again!!

  19. My maybelline colour tattoo is definitely something I used to use religiously for an effortless eye look or a primer with some colour that I have abandoned in recent days, mainly because summer has resulted in me being too lazy to use eye shadows and I've basically just been sticking to a winged liner, hopefully when a/w comes i'll dig them out again and show them some love!

  20. I have such an addict with buying new products, but I've got SO many sat in drawers at home that's never touched. My main 'problem' is definitely lipsticks, I have so many that I've only swatched or used one or two times! Love the shade of the Mac lipstick - great post x

  22. Great post! I think people are too quick to jump on the hype of a new product when their old ones were just as good!

  23. Hi, I've recently done a similar post - only with clothing items found in my wardrobe. I should try this too though, I tend to use the same make up day in, day out and I have a drawer full of the stuff!

  24. I still need to try the Maybelline Gimme Brow, been meaning to pick it up for ages!

  26. i really need to dig Syrup and Brow Drama back out too! I really like the formula of Brow Drama even though i find the wanted slightly awkward. Syrup really does have the potential to be my perfect everyday shade too xx

  29. I really need to take a leaf out of your book and give some love to some forgotten about products! I tend to get new things and then use them and use them until I find something else new that I like and then the old ones get pushed to the back of the drawer and forgotten about. Your post has inspired me to look through my makeup drawers when I'm getting ready in the morning and use something that has been neglected recently :) x

  30. I've been doing exactly the same thing later! I can't believe how many things I've fallen back in love with :) I love Maybelline's Brow Drama too!

  31. The Eyeko liners work best stored horizontally! I found nothing came out of my skinny liner and I thought it was dead but I changed from standing it on it's nib to laying it down and it works again!
