The "Use Me More" Box - Neglected Products

I’ve had a bit of a buying frenzy lately - especially after my big birthday makeup haul. The fancy new products have really got their hold over me, causing me to push some once-loved items to the back of my drawer. I decided to use this little box I got from H&M to keep things I really want to use more - I figure this way, I’ll see them and be more likely to reach for them.

Starting with a base product, I completely fell in love with the Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer when I first got it (first mentioned in my Too Faced Haul here). But soon after, I picked up the Glossier Priming Moisturizer and have been using that as a 2-in-1 moisturizer + primer step in the mornings, leaving the Too Faced a little neglected. It’s a lovely product though - super nourishing yet still very light - if you've got oily skin I reckon this would would be a great moisturizer. I’m too in love with my Glossier moisturizer to consider skipping the step, but maybe when my skin gets a little more oily as the weather gets hotter and I don't need as much of the glow I get from the Glossier, I’ll put this to good use.

One of my favorite blush formulations ever is that of the Clinique Cheek Pop blushes. I got the shade Berry Pop back in September (included in my first haul post on this blog!). I don’t know why I’ve let this sit unloved lately, but its divine creamy powder formula is perfect for the warmer months - I tend to always reach for creams when the weather warms up, but could definitely use the longevity of a powder.

Another face product that’s been neglected lately is the Benefit Watt’s Up Highlighter. There was a period of time where I mentioned this in almost every post and it was my favorite thing ever. I’ve recently been opting for the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer or the highlighter side of The Creamy Glow by Kevyn Aucoin because they’re so natural looking yet still give a supermodel glow. But once I get a bit of a tan (ha) this more golden shade will be absolutely perfect.

I spoke about the MAC eyeshadow in Woodwinked in my MAC eyeshadow post here, but I haven’t been reaching for it much. Right now, it’s a bit too bronzy for me, and I’ve been going more for shades like Patina. Again, I think some more color in my complexion will work wonders and make this a bit more flattering.

Lastly is a lip product I was so so excited about, but I’ve only worn it once or twice so far. I got the Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Wildflower back in November I believe after seeing it in an Essiebutton video, but it’s just more of a spring and summer shade. Now that it’s warmer I’ve been forgetting about it because it’s not an exciting and new product to me - hopefully having it out in eyesight will remind me to actually start wearing it!
