Items I Wish I Used More

I think we all have items like this, items you look into your stash and think *I LOVE YOU, but why don't I use you more?* These are those things for me, and my hope of using them more over the next few months. 

1. MAC Oh Darling (2015 Limited Edition) 
This one was SO HYPED. Seriously the hype was huge around this one, everyone wanted it.... and I was there first thing to get it... I just didn't use it after that.. I need to. I still struggle to use a gold highlighter, but I am becoming more comfortable with them now, I just need to have more confidence to use it! 

2. Dior Rosy Glow
I got this one back on holiday in 2014, and I know I know, its probably time to bin it, but I will not. It is so pretty on, I just don't reach for it all the time... I used to, but I need to start using it again! 

3. Make Up Geek Shadows (Full Post Here) 
There was so much hype around these when they were first launched in the UK, and with good reason too, they are amazing shadows.... I just don't use them for some reason. I find myself reaching for the pre-made palettes more, or my MAC one... I just need to branch out and use this one. Put it above my others. 

4. Illamasqua Bibelot 
I love this shade, but I never reach for it. Luckily it was a total steal from TK Maxx, but I want to start using this more, especially with Christmas approaching! 

5. Clinique Ruby Pop (Matte) 
I love the formula and the shade of this, but a red isn't something I usually wear. But this will be worn this Christmas.. it will be. And I have the perfect little red dress (with Santa all over) to go with it :)

6. Dior Fashion Night 
Such stunning beautiful packaging... it is always on my instagram... but I don't actually wear it very often... I was hoping it would be worn all this autumn, so I need to use it quick... cause autumn is almost done! 

7. YSL Rose Stiletto
This one is part way between a nude and a purple lip. It is fab, but again I never use it... but it is so different and unique, I don't have anything else like this. USE IT ERIN. 

So there is all the items I haven't been using recently... which things have you been meaning to use? Or which things do you love and never get the chance to use them? Let me know in the comments below! I would love to know :) 

I would LOVE it if you could follow me on Bloglovin' (I follow back too)


  1. I've always wanted to try the makeup geek shadows, I'm totally the same though. I will have my favourite palettes that I use then some will go untouched for ages!! It's so hard when you have certain products though that just aren't in your day to day routine - I just completely forget about them! xx


  2. We all have some of these products that we get just because of the hype or just because they look good and we hardly use them :) Oh Darling is pretty, you should wear it more often since the festive season is approaching, you don't need an excuse to go all in with the makeup :)

  6. The Mac Highlighter and Makeup Geek Eyeshadows are beautiful. I love the colours, something I would definitely go for.

  8. The MAC highlighter is stunning!! I am actually the opposite and never seem to reach for my pre-made palettes any more and only really use my custom palette, I guess because I hand-selected every single shade I just know they're always going to work for me :)

  9. This is such a great idea for a post! I've never tried Makeup Geek, I want to but feel like I can't because I have my custom MAC palette :/

  10. I feel like I never use my really high-end products because I don't want to waste them haha. That Dior blush is such a beautiful, unique color! Perfect for pale skin x

  11. I think if I had any of makeup geek eyeshadows, I would use it all the time. :D
    But having the same problem with the Naked Smokey.

  12. I've not tried makeup geek, but they're always raved about! I love the look of Grandstand x

  13. I can take that makeup geek palette of your hands if it needs a bit of love :)

  14. Ever since i made my first makeup geek order i have been obsessed i have 2 full z palettes now and i could easily live off of makeup geek eyeshadows. I know what you mean though i have makeup products that i like a lot but i just don't reach for them that much which is odd haha.

  15. Oh Darling just looks AMAZINGLY GOOD. I wish I got my hands on it!
    And Ruby Pop looks pretty as well - you should use it more, especially with holidays coming up :)

  16. I have MAC Oh Darling too - and oh my god was it hard to get!!!!! - but I've barely touched it! I'm so afraid that I'll run out since it's limited edition and can't buy it anymore.... Should definitely use it more :D x
