Today, I have a mini donate/purge post. Here are two makeup items I’m donating to Jean Queen on Commercial Drive.
Lasting Finish by Kate Rimmel Lipstick in 109
I bought this lipstick in the summer because a) it was cheap at CAD $3 and b)I wanted an orange lipstick c)I was desperate after donating the perfect, affordable, non-BDS coral-red lipstick from Revlon. I wore this lipstick out a couple of times and just couldn’t make it work.
Dear Self, do not buy pastel or light colored lipsticks. Look for lipsticks that are darker in tone to match your olive skin. Love, Self
Make Up For Ever Rouge Naturel Lipstick in N9
I got this for free as part of the Sephora birthday gift back in May. I’ve worn this lip color loads of times until one day, I looked at myself in the mirror and realized I no longer liked it. Perhaps it had something to do with how much of the color I was packing on but the color simply did not work for my lips. I have naturally dark lips so this copper-pink color showed up as a pink I (now) detest.
Have you ever bought/used a makeup product and then realized it wasn’t flattering on you at all?
Stay true xo
