Shopping Your Stash: How To Make The Most Of Your Makeup Collection

I have too much makeup. Well, maybe not too much... but certainly more than I need. I think considering I blog about makeup my collection is reasonable, but still far more than I will ever finish up. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to that, with so many new releases and beauty gurus saying that we need everything.

Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics Review

If your Instagram feed is anything like mine, you'll have heard of Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. This year I've been seeing their products in flatlays and in blog posts. When they reached out to me and asked if I would like to try some of their products, I was so excited. I always get a little giddy when I try or buy products that people I trust rave about.

I read through their website to learn more about mineral cosmetics, because to be honest, I really don't know much about them. What I gathered was that because their products don't contain a lot of ingredients that can be irritants or bad for your skin (talc, mineral oil, alcohol) they are better for your skin. Their website states that they were created to be able to used on damaged skin while still allowing it to breathe.

Dose Of Colors Lip It Up Satin Lipstick Review

It didn't take much for me to decide I wanted to pick up some of the new Lip It Up Satin Lipsticks by Dose of Colors. In fact, all it took was seeing a few bloggers swatch them on Snapchat. I mean, an entire line of neutral "bullet" lipsticks in pretty rose gold packaging? Sign me up.

I headed over to YouTube and watched a few lip swatch videos to decide which shades to pick out. Butterscotch is a very light and peachy nude, Toast is a mid-toned warm brown and Mocha is a deeper, purple based brown. All three are beautiful and wearable.

My Current Beauty Wishlist

I've been trying to become a more responsible consumer this past year. I try not to get anything on a whim. I like to read reviews from different people to get a feel for how something might work for me. I've been doing my best to not buy something just because it's being splashed all over my Instagram feed, but sometimes it's hard! There are some products that just call your name, practicality be damned. 

Here you'll find a list of the products that I've decided would fit into my collection, get use and be loved. As much as you can decide that kind of thing without actually owning the products, anyway.

The Best Shampoo I've Ever Used - Evo Gluttony Shampoo

I've never been the best at doing my hair. I'm not sure if it's because I lack talent or if my hair is just that difficult. If my hair were a human, it would be a toddler. Right in the midst of the terrible twos. As a result, I really rely on good shampoo and conditioner, because there isn't much I can do in terms of styling.

The lovely team at reached out to me and asked if I would like to try out some Evo hair products. I peeked on their website and was immediately smitten with their branding. Just about every product had five star ratings as well, which is always a huge selling point.
