Saving For A Rainy Day || Beauty

Makeup

I'm back! After a week off from blogging I'm back full of inspiration and excitement, so let's get back into the blog posts!
When I was growing up I was always told to 'save your money for a rainy day' so that you could treat yourself to something nice however now that I'm much older I find myself keeping certain products for 'a rainy day'. Meaning I won't open these products until I feel a certain day comes around and I need a pick me up. As they haven't been opened I don't have to worry about trying to use them up before they go past their throw away date. I always find myself topping this little pile up with things every now and again that I feel like I don't need to use right now because I have other kinds opened already. Here's what's currently in my 'saving for a rainy day' pile.

Seventeen Cheek Stamp Blush Coming into Autumn time I'm more likely to use a blush however I won't wear it all the time. This particular one is a subtle pink with a little shimmer. On the product itself there is a mirror which I think is really handy especially if you're travelling about and need a little mirror.

I have quite a few mascaras in this as I'm currently trying to work through the ones I already have so I don't want to open another one just yet to add to it as I don't want them to dry out. It's so bad that so I'm not excited about opening them I haven't even looked up what the brushes look like in any of them so I won't get excited and just rip them all open! Currently in the pile is the Maybelline Waterproof Lash Sensational, Smashbox Full Exposure, Seventeen Falsifeye HD and the Bourjois Volumizer. I am of course excited to try all of these but my will power is going pretty strong and I'm proud. 

7th Heaven Face Masks I adore a good facemask and so as I'm working through the ones already in my collection I decided to put these in with the rest of my rainy day products so that I have some when I finish my other masks. I adore these masks especially, however these are my first ones I've got since Montagne Jeunesse have changed their name.

Seventeen Skin Wow! Tan Liquid Glow Okay I can see myself opening this pretty soon because I am so excited to try it out. I have been dying to get my hands on this for so long so when I won it in a competition I was over the moon. Since it is Autumn now I will have to keep my skin bronzed up for awhile and what a better way to do so than with a new bronzer...right!? Atleast that's what I'm telling myself anyway.

Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm My skincare press is ridiculously overflowing so I decided to keep both tubes of this for a rainy day. I'm not going to lie but before my birthday I hadn't even heard of this brand before, but I am excited to give it a try. I'm pretty obsessed when it comes to skincare products to be honest.

Do you save products for a rainy day?

  5. I'm exactly the same with mascaras, I have so many that I end up putting them in 'storage' because it would be pointless to open them :)

    1. I used to be dreadful and would open them all but have since figured there's no point because they just dry out x
