Discovering My Stash: Flirt! Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow

As I was going through my storage cases this weekend, I found a few beloved items that I’ve completely neglected in recent months – or years. One such item is my favorite Flirt! Dreamy Eyes Eyeshadow. I bought this eyeshadow a few years back. It’s probably passed it’s shelf life, but I have a difficult time parting with my favorites.

I have a new goal this coming 2012: I am going to gather up all my “favorite” beauty items and make a promise to use up every single one of them by the end of the year. One year may sound like a long time, but I ensure you, I am being quite ambitious.

The pigmentation of this eyeshadow isn’t great, but it’s very buildable. I love the slight shimmers. The lasting power isn’t on par with MAC eyeshadows, but it’s quite good and can last the entire day if used with a good eye primer.

I think I will try to use up this eyeshadow by the end of January. Until then, I will not buy any new eyeshadows. Look out for a coming post about my makeup ban!
