Handbag Declutter: August 2014

Today, I've decided to take a short post break from the continuous swatching of nail polishes (I'll get back to that tomorrow though). Instead, I'll show you what products have been partying in my bag for the past month!

I'll try my best to make this a monthly thing since I've figured that it's a great way to keep you updated with what products (although mainly lip products) I've been using, liking and trialling! Of course, to declutter too. I go to uni for one subject a day, but my bag feels as if I'm holding at least 5 textbooks. In fact, all I have is one textbook, one notebook and a bunch of beauty products that I've added every fewer days since my schedule is always "on-the-go".

By "on-the-go", I mean.... Sleep late. Wake up late. Go to class late. Repeat.

So here are the products that I've accumulated in my bag for the past month...

1. Face Of Australia Lip Quench in Peachs & Cream*
This is one of my favourite pink lippies ever. It's not bold. It's a lighter pink (not to be confused with being a "nudy-pink") that looks pretty and natural, with a slight pop.

2. EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint
I've finished my Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm recently! Finally unpacked this EOS Lip Balm. The shade is so cute, and so the application is so funky! Really enjoying it for now. May change my mind later.

3. Face Of Australia Lasting Looks in Love Berry*
I can't remember how long this has been in my handbag. Probably since last semester. Was supposed to trial it to review, but ended up using it to dab over the lips for a subtle, rosy pink tint. I jut can't see myself wearing such a bold shade to Uni. Haha..

 4. Maybelline Color Whispers in Lust for Blush
Only tried one shade from this range so far and I like it much better than Revlon's Lip Butters (if that is what people usually compare it to). Feels nice, looks nice, isn't slippery on the lips and is pigmented. Loved sporting this nudy-pink until I realised how dead it made me look!!

5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam
I've only worn this once, when I was heading to the Dental Hospital in the city. No, I was not having any procedures done on the day, so before you squeal "WTF"... I did not. Which alien in their right mind would wear a red lipstick to the dentist anyways?!

I love these Soft Matte Lip Creams. Amsterdam is quite nice. Not much I could say about the shade. It works for me, I didn't mind it. I did think it'd work better with a lip liner though, since the doe-foot applicator that it comes with isn't made for a sharp, clean look.

6. Savvy by DB Eyeliner in Bronze
This is the older packaging for their eye pencils. I'm not one for eyeliner on the go, but I grabbed this today for my lower lash line since I didn't squeeze in enough time for mascara in the morn. Either way, this has been in my collection for yonks! Time to get down to finishing it!!!

7. Face Of Australia Glossy Lip Crayon in Apple Crumble*
I quickly got over these since I reviewed them here. I did try to back to use them up though (to declutter my stash). Used this as a gloss over NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Amsterdam, since I found Amsterdam is a tad drying on its own.

That's all for this month! Quite a few FOA products we have...

And thou shalt not be surprised if every month is lipstick, lipstick and lipstick. I don't like doing my make-up on-the-go. I prefer to sit at home, in my own comfort [and peace] to slowly put on my face every morning. Therefore the only products that I'd apply on the go are lipsticks, though there may be a few exceptions here and there...

Anyone else like myself, who just WILL NOT do their make-up on the go?
Especially public transports.... *squeals*
