  1. Great products! I need to rotate products a lot more than I currently do so that I get to use more products. The clinique chubby sticks are always something I have on me though since I love those

  2. You've included some amazing products. I love Colourpop Cricket. I ordered it on a bit of whim but have got so much use from it. x

  3. KathleenLights was raving about the elf eyeshadow palette. I was super impressed by their eyeshadow brushes, so I might bought palette as well can't wait to see your review.

  4. I need to do that too, I have so many products that I am not using. Love the highlighters and bronzers and I have NYX Thalia too that I haven't worn in ages but I love it :)


  5. I should start using what's in my drawer to instead of getting new things and hardly using the ones I have. Hot gossip is beautiful!

  6. I started up with doing this but I think I've kinda gotten away from it. I'm loving that NYX lipstick shade.

    Lots of love from Mollie xxx | http://wwwtheperksofmolliequirk.blogspot.com

  8. I like the idea of mixing some old and new products so nothing goes to waste :)
    I also really love when bloggers link everything (although it's more work it really helps the reader) so I thank you for that!
    I just went through this and I got few ideas and favorites to check out myself :)
