May Beauty Balance

Soon after my last post/incoming product delivery arrived, another one arrived. I mentioned that I had decided I wanted two of the GOT urban decay liners and that I was struggling to get them due to them being repeatedly sold out. I got the second one.


That one is a gold metallic color. And as it turns out, it is an absolutely exact replica of my metallic gold urban decay liner I got after the holiday.

img_0513See the one WAY over on the far right? That’s the one that is exactly the same as I just purchased. And I am not mad about it. Why? Because I love that liner so much as an inner corner highlight. But, I didn’t want to use it because it didn’t seem to be one that is in their regular line up and I couldn’t get it again. Without even trying, now I have it. I recently told myself I wouldn’t pan another liner, but I might have lied. Because I can totally pan the gold one now that I have a full size. (Except I won’t, because I also want to actually use all the other liners I have floating around.)

Anyhow, now that I’ve worked through that tangent, I also picked up an oil. I am getting pretty close to being out of my face oil and I figured I’d take advantage of the order and the sale. Naturally, the order came with another two samples. This brings me back to a beauty balance. I am not posting any empties today. I’ll have my boxycharm order pretty quick and I’ll post some empties then. I will also mention that I have decided that the easiest way to deal with the many sample sizes that are arriving in my collection and thus kind of screwing up my beauty balance is to USE THEM. And so I am using them, and my next beauty balance post should be featuring a number of them.

  1. I have been immediately putting samples into my bathroom to use up as well when I get them in an order, so they won’t sit around in my drawer anymore. It is only May 10th and I already have 7 empties (including decluttered items) for my May Empty post that I post at the end of the month/beginning of the next. I am totally eyeing those new Urban Decay pencils. Are they good on the waterline? I may have to buy one if so. NONE of my liners work in my waterline.

    • I love the UD liners in general and they are good on the waterline. I would also highly suggest trying the Milk gel liners on the waterline, if you haven’t already tried them.

      I love getting samples used up, it’s quite satisfying!
