Products I Need to Use More

There are products in my makeup stash that just don't get the love. It's so easy for me in the morning to pick the tried and true products I know will hope me look less like a walking corpse. There's a little bin in the back right corner that magically collects all the products that don't get that much attention. I took a rifle through it and found some products I definitely need to use more.

I was beyond excited about trying out the Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes mascara. Yet I haven't used this in weeks as it just doesn't give my lashes the look I want. It's a perfectly adequate mascara, but lacks a little something in the volume department. I shouldn't let a perfectly good tube of mascara go to waste though so I'm going to make a conscious effort to use this up.

Sadly the right corner bin collects a lot of highlighters and bronzers. Two that I want to bring back out into regular rotation are theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer and Bourjois Délice de Poudre Bronzing Powder. Both are superb products that do exactly what you want them to. The highlighter is intense, so a little goes a long way to giving you that perfect candlelit glow. The bronzer helps warm up the complexion and can even provide a little bit of contour on days I'm feeling confident in my abilities. That right corner bin just isn't doing them any favors.

Finally I've always been a fan of BB Creams, but the OFRA offering has become the wicked step sister of the rest of my collection. It's a great BB Cream that rivals all of my favorites, but it's large packaging must psych me out or something (it looks like a tube of lotion to me) as I still have nearly a full container of this. The coverage is BB Cream standard (light but enough to even out the skin tone) and it lasts really well. Now if only I can remember to put it on my face...

Are there any beauty products in your collection that you enjoy, but find that you just don't use that often? Or are there products you really need to just say goodbye to?

  1. These sound lovely and you should use them if they are that good but I am guilty of this lately as well.

  2. I have the same issue with the Mary-Lou Manizer. I should use it more often but I always worry about over applying it.

  3. I had the Mary-Lou Manizer sitting unloved for awhile, but I've really made a concious effort to use it more. It's ended up popping up in a few of my blogposts recently! I have a lot of lip products that I really should use more, but I always end up rotating through the same three.

  5. I love the Mary Lou Manizer but I definitely do not use it enough, I think i'll have to pull this out of my stash and start using it again!
