Using My Stash--August 2013

While I normally do this post every other month, I just had to do one this month as it is all makeup products, something which is difficult for me to use up.

Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro 002 Primer. This primer has been working out really well for me this summer. I love this new formulation. The older, tinted formulation did not work well for me at all. I've already purchased and am using a new tube.

Maquillage Moisture Finish Powdery UV Foundation. I don't use this as a foundation but as a finishing powder. This is the 2nd pan that I've used as I had bought 2 at the same time several years ago. I believe that this was a fall/winter release so I am hoping it gets released again as I liked it.

Canmake Cheek & Cheek 06. This was a LE color from a year or two ago. It was a great color and product to use. I find that Canmake blushes appeal to me and they are reasonably priced in Japan.

Covergirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast mascara. This is by far my favorite mascara. I have bought several back ups of it. Here's my review.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h WP. I can't live without this eyeliner! I always love the LE packaging as it usually is pink. The new one that I opened up to replace this one is in the regular black tubing. I'm still getting used to looking for the black tube instead of pink when I want to use my eyeliner.


While it's wasteful to have to throw away products, some items just can't be helped. I normally like to try to "recycle" products by either giving it away or selling it but items that can't be safely sanitized has to be discarded.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner Pens. I had read great reviews on this eyeliner and loved the fact that it came in different colors other than black and brown. Unfortunately, this isn't for me. I find that the application isn't as smooth as K-Palette. Although it's supposedly waterproof, I find that it smudges and color transfers on me very easily. While I fully line my upper eyelid, I line only the outer end of lower lashline. By half a day, my eyes look like a raccoon because of color has transferred to under my eyes and it's not a pretty sight. I have only used each of the colors once or twice but since they are felt tip pens, I don't think that these can be safely sanitized so they will have to be dumped. How unfortunate!

I've heard mixed reviews on the Clump Crusher, but I'd definitely try it now! Thanks for the post, and it's quite interesting to see what others use. *u* <3

@June L. Thank you for visiting and commenting. I, too, have read mixed reviews on Clump Crusher but it really seems to work on my very stubborn, hard-to-curl lashes. Even Mai (the very silent other half of this blog) loves it and she's very particular about her mascara. It doesn't flake on her and curls her lashes nicely without using an eyelash curler.
