Every couple of months I go through my make up collection and pick out the essentials that I plan to use every morning in a bid to streamline my routine as my collection is stored by function - blushers, eyes, foundations, etc. I try to focus on using up any products that are near the end. I get a strange satisfaction from finishing something up!
This is my current box, it has a bit more in there than I strictly need, with a couple of eyeshadow palettes and blushes, but they keep things exciting :)
I'm trying to finish up my Lacura and Bourjois foundations, I love them both and have already repurchased back ups. Despite using them all the time they've lasted for ages. I'm really getting into the Collection 2000 Perfect Finish foundation. The quality of their bargain basement foundations astounds me - I also love the Lasting Finish.
The pot with the black lid is actually some Clinique Pore Minimizer which I decanted from the tube and it's amazing how much product I salvaged. It's a great primer and really fills in your pores but is no where near as gloopy as the L'Oreal Studio resurfacing primer.
I'm also near the end of the No7 dupe for YSL's Touche Eclat, which is a good deal if you use one of those £5 off vouchers towards it. Benefit Georgia is a wonderful finishing powder, it just transforms your overall complexion. Some people expect it to work like a blush but it's not pigmented enough for that.
I prefer to use a box rather than a bag as it's easier to see everything inside. I'm loving the box that the Juicy Couture perfume I got for Christmas came in. I'm trying not to get it grubby with make up!
