Playing with my makeup graveyard box

You ever had a makeup product that you tried before, hated it and just put it aside somewhere and forgot about it? I have a box called my makeup graveyard where I have all these products that were given to me or I bought and thought it completely sucked. One such product in there was Iman's Blush in Sable. When I first put it on, it looked very dark and looked like I got into a fight and lost. Last night, out of pure boredom, I decided to give it a go one more time, but this time to use as a contour. I used my BBR MSF in Brunette as a highlighter. Bam! Out of nowhere cheekbones appeared! (Ignore the horrible eyeshadow. I was trying to figure out how to use this awful green shade)

So now my Iman Sable has come back to life!

Then I went back and retried the stupid pink shade from L'Oreal Hip. I know in one post I used it and kinda liked it, but I could never get it to look right with the blue that came with it. Well, now that I have these new crease brushes from Essence of Beauty, application of eyeshadows are so much easier.Don't ask what I was doing before. I like it so much better. Other stuff I am trying to figure how to like better is MAC's Groundwork Paint Pot, Makeup For Ever Duo Mat 214(stuff looks orange on me, I look like a pumpkin)and this Ulta Palette I got for Christmas which contained that green color I am trying to work with above. I just feel bad throwing away anything, waste not, want not right?
