I would like to show you girls my small collection. Now this is a collection over the last 3 years, slowly one by one I occasionally buy something as I can afford it.


Top left are my nail polishes, mostly Revlon

Middle left are my lipsticks, bit of a variety of brands there but mostly Revlon, Maybaline I got from the supermarket and one Estee Lauder in its box.

Bottom left, 2 only lip pencils one being Mac (kept it in its box) and the other an el cheepo

Next to the the pencils are my 2 only lip glosses one a Mac Lipglass the other Estee Lauder. I did have some other cheap ones but after buying those I got rid of them (the cheep ones) as they did not compare

Bottom middile are my meager set of brushes. I know I really got to get me a better set.

Bottom Right are my mascara's, I seem to have lost one?? Grrr

Middle right are Eyes: Ranging from Revlon, Estee Lauder, 4 Mac Pigments (3 full size one sample) one Urban decay primer potion I bought when I read about it here in this forum, And a tray of Nutri Metics eye shadows. This tray used to belong to my ex Wife, she bought a consultant kit from them and she never sold anything and later on I found that tray in the house unused after she left me. So I now put it to good use. After seeing the lovely eyes on FOTD here I really want to get me some more eye colours.

Left of the Shadows are blushes, one Rimmel, one Revlon and there a Estee Lauder bronzer in the larger round compact.

Left of the Blushes are my Eye Pencils and one liquid eyeliner

Top Right are my foundations, now I rely on those pretty heavily as you can imagin (me being transgender) There are 2 pots of colortration foundation, I really need this to cover beard shadow and it does this well. The rest are Revlon colorstay and I use this in other areas including my shoulders as I suffer from bad acne on the shoulders. Theres a pressed powder compact of Maybellene (nearly finished)and a new unused compact of Revlon which I bought only last weekend.

I think I've talked you though the lot of them, sorry I did not mention the exact colours. I know my stash is tiny compared to most of you here and I am adding to it one by one as I can afford to buy it. I tend to buy a fair bit of clothes too so its a balancing thing depending on how I feel and my finances at the time. I go into the make up section of the department stores and I get a bit overwhelmed at the huge variety available, I dont know often what to get or where to start. I need help in this department. Any suggestions are most welcome. Thanks for reading.
