I recently went through all my beauty products and had a HUGE clean out. Some products I had were so old that I couldn’t believe I still had them in my collection, some were empty or close to being empty, and others just don’t work for my skin so it’s time I part ways with them and give them to someone who will actually get use out of them. Today’s post is going to be all about these products!
Let’s get into it!
Zoeva Nude Spectrum Palette – this hasn’t been in my collection for long, and as you can see it is definitely far from being empty. However, for whatever reason I am not loving this palette. Don’t get me wrong, the shades are beautiful and pigmented, I just find that I have SOOOO many other palettes that have similar colour stories that I always reach for. So I am going to pass this palette along to a family member and hope that they can give it the love and attention is well and truly deserves.
Jeffree Star King Tut Skin Frost – again, this hasn’t been in my collection for too long. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking when I brought this product and I am actually angry at myself for wasting the money. Firstly, these highlights are blinding, however they are definitely not my favourite formula wise. Secondly, I am ghostly pale, so why did I ever think that this dark bronze shade would EVER work on my skin.
Rimmel London x Kate Moss Blush Collection – I have had this for quite a while now. I absolutely loved this product when it first came out. The highlight is poppin’, the blush and stunning and the bronzer isn’t too warm for my complexion. This is another product that I just don’t reach for anymore so it is time to make some room for some new goodies and pass this one along.
L’Oreal Paris Glam Bronze Eau De Soleil Bronzer – I have had this in my collection for soooooooo long now. I absolutely love this product as it gives such a beautiful natural bronze glow to the face. It has been a while since I have used it, and I don’t really how exactly how old it is, so it’s time to go in the bin! If they still sell this product, I will be grabbing myself another one.
Sportsgirl Glow With It Bronzer – I don’t really know what I was thinking when I brought this product. Don’t get me wrong, the bronzer is stunning and super glowy. I don’t really love the shimmer in this bronzer, and I can really only use it when I am fake tanned (which I have cut back on) so I never really reach for it.
No Pong Deodorant – my sister put me onto this product in the middle of the year. I was very hesitant at trying because it is one of those deodorant that you have to put on with your hands, and I wasn’t sold on the ‘all natural’ side of things (I find they never really work at hiding smells). However, I absolutely LOVE this product and I have already repurchased 2 more tins of this. My skin is really sensitive under my arms and I find that spray deodorants can leave me feeling itchy and irritated. This natural deodorant really does work wonders!
Lashes – the styles are Kara #wsp, kara #41 and the XoBeauty The Innocent. I am getting rid of these lashes simply because I have so many others in my collection that I love to use. These lashes just don’t really appeal to me anymore so I will pass them along to a family member (except the used ones, they are going in the bin obviously).
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – I feel like everyone at some point in their makeup journeys have used this concealer. It is an old cult favourite, which is why mine is completely empty. This one is in the shade fair and it works perfectly with my pale skin to hide my dark undereye circles. I will definitely be repurchasing this concealer.
Too Faced Born this Way Mini Concealer – I have been through two of these concealers within the last few months. Yes they are minis, and yes I know they do have a full sized concealer. However I find these small ones so easy to carry around and travel with. I need to get my hands on the new full sized Born This Way concealers ASAP!
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer – I never thought I would ever get through this concealer, but I was wrong. I am so sad that this is empty and I need to repurchase it straight away because it is really amazing. It is super full coverage, it doesn’t crease on me and it lasts forever!
Australis Metallix Shadows – I went through a phase of wanting to own all of the shades of this product, and while that was all well and good, I quickly realised that I will not and cannot ever use up ALL of these shades. I am getting rid of Plum Diddy (brown), Midnight Foil (black), Guns and Rose Petals (rose gold) and Girl on Sa-phire (dark blue). The blue and black shade have dried out a little so they no longer work the same as they once did, and the other two shades are similar to others I have in the collection. Time to go to a new home friends.
Eyeliners – I am getting rid of my white Australis eye pencil simply because I never use it and I have had it for way too long. I also have a NYX white eyeliner that I reach for more often and how many white eyeliners does one girl really need? I am also going to donate an unopened Black Bean Jumbo Eye Pencil by NYX simply because I didn’t realise that I already have this shade and again, I don’t need TWO of the same shade. I am also getting rid of my NYX gray eyeliner because I never reach for grey eyeliner, simple.
Lip Pencils – Jordana Berry Baby, Mac Whirl and Currant, Rimmel Addiction, Milani Sugar Plum and Clinique Violet Sky and Cocoa Peach. There is a whole mix of reasons I am getting rid of these lip liners, but the main one is because I never really reach for them. I am still learning how to perfect my lipstick and I am finding that I am better at NOT using lip liner. Some of these have been in my collection for too long, some barely show up on my lips and others are just not the shades for me.
Colourpop Cosmetics Lippie Stix – in the shades Upside Down and Hotline. I am decluttering these lippies simply because the shades don’t really work well with my skin tone. I know some of my family members would suit these colours way more so I will passing these amazing products onto them.
