Beauty Stash: The Oddballs

Let’s be honest, we all have items in our beauty stash that we either haven’t figured out how to wear or never will wear. If you are like me, you are reluctant to let these things go just in case an occasion pops up that you could use them. Like, I don’t know…a midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show downtown…

I’ve decided to open up my cabinets and share my oddball beauty stash items with you. Don’t judge, you know there is at least one strange item you can’t bare to part with in yours!

OFRA Eyeshadow ICE in Goldilocks
I love cream eyeshadow, and I’m not terribly put off by [tasteful] metallics, but this stuff just screams the Yellow Brick Road! I just cannot imagine an outfit or look that this would actually look good with. Not to mention, my eye lids would resemble a gold dollar coin – and we all know how well that went over!

Lash Card Mascara Shields
In theory, these mascara shields sound great. However, when I am getting ready in the morning, the last thing on my mind is, “Let me just grab one of my individually wrapped mascara shields and make sure my mascara doesn’t end up all over my face.” Granted, my mascara DOES end up on my eye lids most days, I just am not going to add the extra step of awkwardly holding one of these cards while I awkwardly contort my face to get my lashing looking longer and fuller…

Touch in SOL Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base
Again, a skin base is probably a great step for any routine, however, why do you want gold flecks in it??? Do they break down on the skin giving a glittery look? Do they just sit on the skin making you look like a gold speckled Easter egg? Either way, it looks like disco ball in a tube and I’m just not willing to find out the hard way!

Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Blush in Beach Please
I’m sure Be a Bombshell is a great cosmetic brand. I’ve heard loads about them in the beauty world, and nothing bad. But this blush is rather intimidating to me. The color is so bright in the pan that I just want see how it could ever blend enough to be natural looking. Sure, if I ever need to look like a porcelain doll, this would be my first choice! However, on the regular, I’m looking for something…well, a little less obvious. I’m sure this would look GREAT on somebody, but that somebody is not me.

J. Cat Beauty Sparkling Cream Palette in Volta
Tell me honestly, what was the first thing you noticed in this picture? If your answer was not the super sparkley, uber glittery cream eyeshadow palette, then you my friend, need to have your eyeballs checked post haste! Outside of the aforementioned showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, I just cannot fathom a time when I would EVER pull this palette out to actually apply to my skin…Yup, just tried again, and there is not one other time I can think of. Yet, I still haven’t tossed it!

Now that I’ve shared my weird little beauty stash secrets, it’s your turn. What is lingering in your makeup collection that you look at and think, “WTF (Who the F*&!) would it ever be acceptable for this to be worn?!”

    Hah! I probably have other items like that too. They were completely necessary at the time!
