Stash Statistics: September 2011

As promised I would update you on the size of my stash, what has grown, what categories have shrunk.  That sort of stuff.  In order to make this shorter and easier to read than the original post I am simply going to inform you of which categories have changed.

Products I have used up:

Polish Base Coat (from 3 to 2), Face Wash (from 9 to 5), Tonner (from 2 to 1), Moisturizer (from 4 to 3), Eyeliner (from 14 to 13), Conditioner (5 to 3), Curling Spray (from 3 to 2), Mascara (from 2 to 1).

Products I have Purchased:

Blush (from 23 to 24), Powder Shadow (from 128 to 127), Lipstick (from 15 to 18), Body Wash (from 2 to 5), Nail Polish (from 46 to 56)

Product Amount Corrections:
Concealer (from 8 to 9), Creme Shadow (From 14 to 16)

I am fairly proud of how I did in the last three months.  That being said I still did make more purchases than I would like to have.  I am hopeful that in the next three-month period I will be able to use up more products and make fewer purchases.

I Want These!

So i have been perusing my weekly blog reads and this week I found a large number of items that seemed to tickle my fancy. I thought I would spread my lemmings on to you.

Manolo Blahnik Uliepe Yellow Pumps yes please!

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Romance 55. I have been having a love affair with both Chanel and pink lips lately.

What products have you been eyeing lately?


Chanel Aqualumiere in Waikiki (31)

Woops!  So some of you may have noticed that this item has been discontinued since the Chanel Rouge Coco lipsticks came out.  While this item may no longer be available, I thought some would be interested in seeing it since I find the finish to be similar to that of the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines.

Purchased on a Chanel binge during the Neiman Marcus beauty event last January, Waikiki caught my eye as a subtle and potentially my lips but better shade.  While the swatches shown on Neiman Marcus are notoriously bad, I was pleasantly surprised with the shade when it arrived.  I have not worn this lipstick a great deal, not for lack of enjoyment but simply because my lipstick collection is expansive.

I would give this product a 7/10
