My Box of Beauty Backups!

I don't know about you all, but when I find that holy grail, amazing beauty product, I ensure that I never go a day without it. Not to say that I wear the same lipstick everyday or always use the same mascara, but I like to be sure that I have a backup stash of the product (especially for those limited edition items). I wanted to give you all a look into my little box of backup beauty products. Some of these are products that I purchased extras of because they were on sale, some because they were limited edition, and some because I'm a makeup hoarder.

First up are the fragrances. The two in the little boxes are the Warpaint Beauty perfumes in Indie and Untouchable. These are miniature sizes and I did a blog post on them awhile back. They're always super cheap on sale at Hot Topic (I picked these up for $1 each!) and the scents are delicious! I've also got a backup rollerball of the Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume. It's such a fresh, classy floral scent!

First, I have my Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Soft Plum. I adore the consistency of these blushes and I wear this particular shade often. There had been rumors of these blushes being discontinued, which is why I snagged a backup, but for now, they're still being sold in my area. The second blush is a MAC Blushcreme in Lillicent. This is one of my all-time favorite blushes and it's a total summertime essential. I got this at a CCO as a backup, because the color was limited edition (though I'm hoping MAC will eventually re-promote it!)

Next up are my backups of different lip products. I've got the MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick, which is probably my all-time favorite lipstick. I have a backup of my favorite nude, the Revlon lip butter in Creme Brulee. The Physician's Formula Happy Booster Lipstick in I Heart Rose is another of my go-to lipsticks. Plus, there was a coupon at CVS one day for $7 off of any Physician's Formula products, meaning I snagged this for only $3! The Stila Lip Glaze in Apricot is also tossed in here. I rarely wear lip glosses, but I adore this one!

Urban Decay makes up a good portion of my makeup collection, which is why I have backups of these favorites. There's the Urban Decay Urban Defense Tinted Moisturizer (in the vintage packaging), the Urban Decay Primer Potion (also in vintage packaging), and finally the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Flipside.

Lastly are the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips in Teal With It and Cry Baby. I got these 75% at CVS one day and I love how they don't require a dry-time, which is why I don't mind wearing them in solid colors!

Do any of you have a stash of backups? If so, what's in it?
