I’ve officially made it a 1/4 of a year without buying new makeup! Excuse me while a do a little jig for a second. ?? This is HUGE for me, y’all. The Makeup Capsule Experiment is working. I feel like I’m really finding my groove and I think 3 months is long enough to re-evaluate some of my “rules” for the makeup capsule experiment. So, for April, I’m shaking things up a bit.
Over the last three months, I have stuck to each capsule around 90% of the time. Meaning, I deviated from the products in my capsule only about 10% of the time. However, I’m finding that I’m missing a lot of my products. I find myself in a certain mood and I think, “man! I wish X, Y, Z was in this capsule.” To me, that’s kind of sad. The mere fact that I’m wishing I could use something I already own tells me that I need to make a change.
To try to fix this FOMO problem, I’m going to open up my entire collection. I’ll be “allowed” to use any product I wish, but I’m going to put a focus on using certain items. I’ll set a makeup capsule, just as before, but instead of using only those items, I’ll make it a goal to focus on certain products, while allowing myself to also use others. If I can balance all this, I think this is going to be a great tweak to my guidelines… tune in next month to see how it went. 😉
Now, for the April Makeup Capsule Products…

Spring has officially sprung! That makes me think color (PURPLE!) and Earthy tones (OLIVE!). What do you know? I have some Bare Mineral Ready Eyeshadow quads in just those tones. I’m busting out The Dream Sequence quad and The Designer Label quad for eyes this month.
I’m also pulling out my BECCA highlighter in moonstone!
March Makeup Capsule Takeaways –
I enjoyed most items this month. I was able to really use up some product and that makes me happy – that’s why I started this experiment in the first place! I got really creative and started finding multiple ways to use my makeup.
There was one product, though, that I ended up really disliking. The Coola setting spray really made my skin look cakey in some areas. I knew that it was the setting spray because when I stopped using it, the caking stopped, too. It also kind of stings when the product hits the skin and the nozzle doesn’t spray as fine as I’d like. It had an alcohol-like smell and feeling to it so when I sprayed it on top of makeup it dried out the area. So, I’d say pass on it and just invest in the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray instead.
No makeup was bought. Another month of success!
