Spring Clean Your Beauty Stash

As the clocks went forward this weekend I decided this was the prime time to stop procrastinating and jump into some spring cleaning action. Yesterday I tackled my beauty collection because, tragically, the lotions and potions residing in our makeup and skincare stashes don’t last forever, and this was as good a time as any to give my beauty stash a thorough spring clean!

Then I received one as a Christmas gift and my obsession began. Some of you may own a couple of these beauties and be content, but I’ll hold my hands up and admit that I’m starting to become a bit of a hoarder when it comes to these. It may be time to send me to lipstick rehab because I think I have a problem.

I love reading MAC lipstick collection posts, it helps me get an idea of which shades I’d like to try next (plus I’m just super nosey!) so I decided it was time I shared my collection with swatches below. Here goes…  Continue reading “MY MAC LIPSTICK COLLECTION”
