I decided to make this post rather than another decluttering by brand one, as I am having problems locating the photos for the rest of that series which is frustrating. However I just really wanted to get another post out for you guys.
Every item in this post has either been binned or kept for back to MAC purposes. This is because these products have either expired or it isn’t hygienic to pass on to others.
Getting into the products the first item that I decided to throw out is the Too Faced Better than sex waterproof mascara. I purchased this from a Sephora in Rome as I only have one other waterproof mascara. This just did nothing for my lashes. I used it multiple times and the formula is so dry that it just feels like I am using a really old mascara (£9.00)
Secondly, the Smashbox photo finish lash primer (£3.75). This is quite a good product in terms of the length and separation it gives the lashes, but I am decluttering this as it is old and I prefer lash primers that aren’t white.
The final product in the photo below is the Collection lasting perfection concealer in the shade 1 fair. It is great for covering blemishes but not something I would use on the under eye area. This was basically empty so I just decided to declutter it. (£4.19)
The second photo shows all the lip products that I am disposing of. The MAC Toledo Collection lipglass in Oxblood (£14.00) and the Colourpop ultra matte lip in Times Square (£4.57) are both in my project pan 2017. However, the Colourpop one has to be tossed and the MAC one will be back to MAC’d since these have clearly expired. By that I am referring to the formula and scent changing massively.
The Colourpop ultra matte lip mini in Bianca (FREE) will also be tossed as it has expired as well. Finally, the MAC prolong wear lipstick in Unlimited will be back to MAC’d as I never wear this shade and it is well on its way to expiring. (£16.00)
Below are the two drugstore blushes that I am getting rid of: the honey queen honeycomb blusher by W7 (£5.95) and The Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Highlighter in ‘Rose Gold lights’ (£3.00). The W7 item is just really old, when swirled together it is a really pretty natural shade that reminds me of Benefits Sugarbomb box blush. The Makeup Revolution product I bought to use as a blush before I realised that, to be honest it looks like a vagina. How did no one at the company realise that? Besides that it is just not the right shade for me.
Mario Badescu enzyme cleansing gel (FREE) – From the times I have used this I have determined that this is clearly for oily skin. Therefore, this doesn’t work with my dry skin.
High lights by Technic is well known for being a budget dupe for the Benefit Cosmetics High Beam. I have owned this for a very long time and I have decided it is time to part ways. Given the applicator as well, I have deemed it no longer sanitary to use. (£2.00)
ELF liquid highlighter in illuminating (£5.00). This has so much oil in it, its so gross. The pigment is almost separated from the oil, no matter how much you shake it and it has no pigment at all. Therefore this is definitely being trashed.
The two blushes that are going back to MAC are a pressed powder one in Well dressed (£15.00) and a mineralized one in Just a Wisp (£21.00). I used the old pricing from when I bought these, yes that is how long ago I bought these. Well dressed is so so old that it needs to go and Just a Wisp is getting quite old and the shade just doesn’t suit me.
The first of the final three products is the NYX Tinted Brow Mascara in Espresso. I really enjoyed this. The shade suits me well, the brush applies the product evenly and its affordable. This is only going because it has dried out. (£6.00)
Secondly is the Kiko SMART Eye pencil in 811 (£1.20). The shade is pretty but it doesn’t glide on easily enough, so you have to keep going back to create a smooth line and this can irritate your lids.
The final item is an Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel mini (FREE). This product has dried out and therefore will be tossed. Although, I have another mini in my collection.
That concludes decluttering my makeup collection round 2 part 1. I hope you all enjoyed it. Please like this post and follow my blog before you leave.
The items in this post bring my empties totals for 2017 to 176 items at a retail value of £839.13! This means that I have done more than last year! I am now super excited to see what the finals totals are for this year.
Until the next time,
