The Forgotten Five

There's a few bits in my makeup collection that I don't use, whether they're still new, or whether I've just forgotten about them, and after a recent clear out I made a promise to myself to start using them more, and they definitely deserve more use!

The two palettes are Elizabeth Arden, one is for creating a daytime look, and the other evening, I cannot remember which is which as they're not labelled, but I would personally use the bottom one for an evening look! The shadows are really pigmented, and blend really well, but also have a good lasting power! With the blushers and highlighters, I prefer to blend the two together to get the right shade for my skin!

The Lord & Berry Eyeliner is something that must have just got hidden underneath other products, as when I first had this I loved it. It's more of a charcoal grey shade rather than a pure black which I actually prefer with a pencil eyeliner as it looks more subtle, especially for those of us who don't suit very heavy eye looks. I use this in the centre of the lashline, and then spread the product and create a wing with an eyeliner brush, this works really well as it blends amazingly without smudging, and I also find this method ensures that it lasts the longest without giving you the panda eyes look that no one can ever pull off!

This mascara has been gathering dust, and for no just reason, it is a very different brush than I normally prefer, but it gives the lashes lots of volume! It is again an Elizabeth Arden product - I didn't mean to forget them all! The packaging is gorgeous, and even though I do prefer to go over this mascara with a lengthening one, there is no denying its voluminous qualities!

This lipstick is barely touched, and again, I have no reason, it is a pink toned berry shade, which is very universal, it isn't too dark for the lighter skin tones, and is bright enough to really compliment the darker skin tones too! 

I am determined to get more use out of these products as they are all lovely, and could definitely slot into my daily routine! Do you have any hidden gems in your stash? I challenge you to try and use them!
