It was definitely time to bring out some new makeup. I hit pan on some of my essential products and I was itching to try some of the new makeup that I had in my stash. The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and L.A. Girl Pro.conceal Corrector were from 2019! Throughout the pandemic I didn’t wear makeup so I had ways to go in 2021 when I started wearing it again. It wasn’t until this year where it was time to call it quits. These 2 products have been my holy grail for years.
In case you’re wondering why I have so many mascara pans, I use about 2 mascaras daily. I’m always trying new ones because mascara is the one makeup item I wear because I love it. To go to work I would use the Hourglass Unlocked Mascara, which was too flaky for my liking. Even when it came time to remove it, it was flaky. Replacing it will be the Tarte Surfer Curl Mascara. On days when I’m up for it I will use the Ilia Limitless Lash Mascara and Nars Climax. They are holy grail products along with the Benefit Tinted Primer which is always my base.
The last item on my pans list is your typical Cherry Chapstick. I have about 3 other chapstick/lip balms that I use depending on what’s within reach so that is why there is no replacement for it. I’m not a fan of the Chapstick brand because it’s more on the dryer side so you won’t be seeing me using it often.
I’m estimating that it will take me about 6 months to finish the concealers and I’ll be done with the Tarte and Benefit mascaras in about 3 months since those are constantly used.
