Sunday Stash Shopping #110: Final Curtain

It’s been quite a few years since I started this series. It’s the only one I stuck to. Stash shopping has been fun, and I will continue, but not as part of a series. I’ll just post something like FOTD whenever I want. It’s been a long ride with 110 posts!! Looking back, I see my face changing with the seasons (LOL!) and mostly, the looks I posted are similar, just using different products.

Also, my blog is turning 8 years old this month. I want to put an end to some things, and maybe start some different things, unrelated to makeup or skincare, if I want to continue blogging. Chloe Ash is a small blog, and I’m getting a little bored talking about beauty stuff all the time. I still review things, but I don’t see myself buying lots of new stuff just for the blog. I have financial limitations since I’m now a full time mom and I see my passion dwindling. However, there are still some products which get me excited, most recent being the Chanel lip blushes for example.

I will talk more about it in another post, so if you’re interested in reading my ramblings unrelated to beauty, please stick around in the future. For now, here’s a look I created using cream products.

 

 

Now that I’m getting older and my skin is getting drier, I appreciate cream products more than powders. However, there are still many powdered products that look good. They have to be of good quality of course. I usually chuck those which are too chalky. Here’s a close up of how the eyes look. I used the darker shade all over my lids, and the light pink only on the inner corner to brighten slightly. This Dior liquid blush is from 2 years ago I think, but it’s so easy to apply. Rivals the Chanel lip blushes, but this Dior one isn’t that comfortable on the lips.

 

 

I’m not wearing any lipstick here, just lip balm. I completely forgot about it. LOL! I may have just applied a tinted lip balm when I went out, because the eyes are slightly darker. I still enjoy a good smokey eye, and I do this from time to time to keep my blending skills (LOL!) but when I want to wear a bright lip, I only apply liner and mascara.

I hope you have a good weekend, and sayonara Sunday Stash Shopping.
