If I Could Only Keep One Tag/Shop My Stash

MAC Eyeshadows (What Clout, Couture Copper Dazzle Shadow Extreme, Cranberry, Swiss Chocolate), NARS Savage Blush, NARS Punta Cana Bronzer, Dior Skin Correct Concealer 4WO, Estee Lauder 4W4 Hazel, Chanel Antoinette, Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer, Sonia G Soft Cheek, Smashbox Blurring Foundation Brush, Sigma F79

I’ve wanted to do this for a while, but I always took it way too seriously and got overwhelmed 😂. I’ve been spending the last few weeks shopping my stash and getting reacquainted with a lot of my things and suddenly I felt like I could probably do it. It’s only hypothetical after all. This tag pops up ever so often, but I believe it was initially started in 2018 by Kelly Gooch on YouTube. As Kelly points out in her video, the interesting thing about doing this is that it narrows things down and not necessarily to your favorite products. If I had to just use one product every day (and of course, I want a cohesive look), it really did change the products that I initially would have picked. So let’s see what made the cut.

Fantasy Makeup Declutter

Pat McGrath Divine Rose Blush Swatch, Lancome Stick Foundation (410 Bisque W) Swatch, Laura Mercier Rose Glow Highlighter Swatch, and MAC In Extreme Dimension 3D Black Lash Mascara

Today I wanted to talk about some products that I just can’t seem to part with, but I could stand to declutter. This is a fantasy declutter because I have no intention of donating or selling any of these products. There are times when I don’t hesitate with letting go of items that don’t work. When you try a lot of makeup (or anything really) there will definitely be items that don’t work out, it’s inevitable. Whether it is because of the formula or the shade, I’ve come to realize that there is something about all four of these products that just aren’t right for me.

Thanks to Lili, I was able to get my hands on a code for the Sephora Friends and Family Sale. I just bought a few select items that I knew I’d be able to use and enjoy regularly.

Lancome Teint Idole Stick Foundation in 410 Bisque W, $44.00**

I recently posted a full review of this newly reformulated foundation from Lancome. I’ve been using the shade 450 Suede N, which is technically too dark and neutral for me. So while I have really enjoyed the formula, I hadn’t been using it as much since I finished my review. Since I had the 20% off code, I decided to go ahead and get a lighter, warm undertone shade. I haven’t given it a try yet, but if it is too light for my face, I plan to mix in some of 450 Suede N.

Lancome Teint Idole Ulta Wear Foundation Stick (450 Suede Neutral)

If you were around to read my Lancome Makeup Round-Up back in February, you may be surprised that I’m posting about this brand. At the time, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be purchasing any more Lancome products, but nevertheless, here we are.

If you are a fan of Lancome and are interested in anything, now is a good time to place an order. They have a friends and family sale going on that ends at 11:59 PM PT on August 31, 2021. If you don’t have an account you can get 25% off and those who do have an account (free to join), get 30% off. They have revamped their brush line since I posted my round-up, but you can check that post for an overview of products I have tried from them. I also have stand alone posts for their Color Design Eyeshadow Singles (Gold Lame and Canyon Swatches) and their Dual Finish Highlighter Illuminating Powders (Dazzling Bronze and Sparkling Peche).

Now let’s get into my thoughts on the newly reformulated Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation Stick**.

UPDATE October 13, 2021: I decided to purchase a lighter shade with a warm undertone in hopes that it will match me better. I figured it would be helpful to show you swatches of the new shade (410 Bisque W) and how it compares to 450 Suede N for those that may be in that range of shades.
