Chocolates and Makeup

Doesn’t that sound like the name of a great blog? Should I rename mine to that? Anyways for the Christmas holidays eating chocolate happens big time and lots of them come in great packaging. Combine that with a makeup lover’s growing collection of makeup and it’s a match made in heaven.
Seriously I was on vacation after Christmas and trying to figure out a better way of organizing my makeup when it happened. The empty Christmas tree-shaped plastic container that previously held Ferrero Rocher chocolates were just the perfect thing for my loose eye-shadows. You know I for some reason had a great fear for loose eye-shadows but I have since conquered that and now my stash has grown and is growing out of control.
Now the actual packaging insert could hold 12 round chocolates but my eye-shadow pots were just barely fitting in them and of course it just made more sense to remove it to be able to store more.
Now the moral of the story is not to rush out and buy chocolates just to store your makeup but rather utilize what you have around you. Try to recycle something old into something new. Who knows what you may uncover and of course you save money by not having to buy a new organizer for your makeup.
Happy recycling!

  1. That is a great idea you've come up with, and your shadows look so cute in that chocolate box...err...tree! :)

    Good message that you're promoting - Reusing is something that I need to think about doing more.

  2. Me too! I usually think I just need to buy something instead of thinking about what I already have that can be used!

Revlon Sculpting Blush Palette in Pink

I have never been so disappointed in a Revlon product before… until now! Maybe I chose the wrong colour for my skin-tone but there are so many other things about this palette that makes me think I should have bought some more lip butters instead. Let’s start with what I do love about the palette. It’s simple black compact that has the same sleek look as the other Revlon photo-ready items. I find a highlighter, contour shade and blush in one palette is a great idea too. Having more blush colour in terms of quantity with smaller sections for the highlighter and contour makes perfect sense since I will use more of the blush anyway. The colours as they appear in the pan look perfectly coordinated to work with each other. You get a small brush with soft bristles in your kit to ensure you can just pop this in your bag and you’re off.  In the sunlight Now here is where it all goes downhill like Jack and Jill with their pail of water. Let’s start with the swatches which made me think twic
