I seldom post empties/repurchased posts because: a) I rarely run out of products (i.e. I own too much makeup) and b) I mostly run out of/repurchase boring things like body wash, deodorant, shampoo, etc. I've put myself on an unofficial, slightly flexible spending ban because I need to start making a dent in my makeup collection. Anyhow, here are a few things I have repurchased in the last few months.

More glitter makeup looks! The cool thing about this one is that it features a very affordable loose glitter! Up until now I had featured glitters that were above the $15 mark. This Poppin Pigments glitter from Hard Candy comes with two different colors for only $6!

I posted several colorful and even glittery makeup looks during the month of June and July. So here's a neutral golden bronze look to balance things out. The main stars of the show are the Maybelline Color Tattoo Cream Eyeshadow in Caramel Cool (review here, it's limited edition so get it while you can!) and the Coastal Scents Copper Pot Eyeshadow (which is similar-ish to MAC Amber Lights so you can use that instead if you have it).

On my IMATS haul post I mentioned I got some new eyeshadows for my INGLOT Freedom Palette. Well, here they are! I chose the two lightest colors with the darkest one in mind, 423. I was looking to make a soft complementary plum-toned trio. I added 423 to my wishlist after seeing it on Amy's blog. If I ever did the "Blogger made me buy it" tag, this eyeshadow would be in there.

I was sent this beautiful eyeshadow by NARS called Malacca ($25). It's a new-ish release that immediately reminded me of other brown/green/blue duochromes such as MAC Club, Urban Decay Lounge, MAC Blue Brown Pigment, MAC Deep Blue Green Pigment, Makeup Geek Insomnia Pigment, etc. Luckily, it's not more of the same. Malacca actually has a cooler base that leans more towards taupe than it does towards a warm brown. So if you've found MAC's Club, and others like it, to be too red for your liking then I suggest taking a look at Malacca.

This is my second time doing the Five Product Face tag and coincidentally I used one of the same products from last time. This time around I didn't multi-task with products as much, except for the cream blush which I used on both my lips and cheeks. Lasts 5PF consisted of: foundation, bronzer, blush, cream eyeshadow, and mascara. This one consists of: liquid illuminator, foundation, cream blush, cream eyeshadow, and mascara.
