FOTD: Plum Purge

I was going through my makeup and trying to figure out if there was anything else I could purge (since I did some Black Friday damage), and I plucked out four products. I rarely just get rid of things, however, unless I hate hate hate them from the get-go; I usually test them a few times, then put away anything that didn't wow me for a month or two and see if I miss it.

Today, I was testing out the Stila Convertible Color in Tulip, the By Terry Touch Veloutee Highlighting Concealer in Porcelain, and MAC Beet lipliner. Tulip was a bit hard to work with because it's so dark and pigmented, but once it's on? UGH. Same with Beet, which is dryer than I usually prefer, but is such a flawless plum color. The By Terry concealer, though? I'm leaning towards purge. It's ludicrously peachy and doesn't seem to do much for my under eyes; it also looks a bit dry.

What are your thoughts?

Also, is it just me, or does my hair look really dark here?!

  1. If you're gonna purge one, I would say get rid of the concealer! I did some Black Friday damage too.......and then a little more after that when I got the email from Sephora letting me know that Becca Pearl was finally available in powder form. Hold me.

    1. No lies, it's a nice powder. But if you have one that you love and that works well for you, I'd stick with it.
