Makeup Declutter

Hi Beauties,

I have recently been updating my makeup inventory which has made me take a long hard look at all the makeup I have been hoarding over the past few years. I decided that now would be a great time to thoroughly declutter my collection and just keep the products that I love and use often. Due to this, I have decluttered a TON of products so this is what I am going to share with you today, I’ve thrown in some empties for good measure also. There is a whole lot to get through so let’s get straight into it!

*Side Note: you may notice that a lot of these photos have different backgrounds. This is because I started this declutter before I took a break from social media, and now that I am back I have made my own new background for my photos!*

Beauty Essentials Makeup Wipes – I absolutely love these makeup wipes for many reasons. They are only $2 from Priceline, they aren’t too harsh for my skin and they come in so many different styles. I picked up a whole bunch a while back while Priceline was having a half off sale so I have been slowly using them up. However, once I run out of these I will not be repurchasing as I am trying to live a more environmentally friendly lifestyle.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray – This is a staple setting spray in so many makeup lovers collections. I feel like I have had this product in my collection for such a long time so I had decided to make it part of my project pan this year. I am happy to say that I have finally used it all up, so now I can give some of my other setting sprays some love before I repurchase this one.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel – Another product which I had in my project pan for this year! I love this clear brow gel so much that I will definitely be repurchasing one day in the future. It holds those unruly brow hairs in place all day and doesn’t leave the brows feeling crusty and gross like some others do.

Benefit Cosmetics High Brow Glow & NYX Cosmetics Jumbo Eye Pencil – I have had these products in my collection for so long now and I honestly ever reach for them so I figured it was time to get rid of them!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Skin Frosts – If you have been following my blog for a while you would remember that one of my first ever posts was about these products. I picked them up in a great sale and I let you know in that post that I was really disappointed with the quality of these products. I never reach for them, they don’t work well on my skin and it was time to say goodbye to them!

ColourPop Cosmetics Lippie Stix – This is another bunch of products I, for some reason, just never reached for. While I do love these shades they were also limited edition which means that you are no longer able to get your hands on some of the shades.

ColourPop Cosmetics Super Shock Cheek & Shadows – As much as I love ColourPop and their affordable products, these ones just aren’t for me anymore. I much prefer their pressed shadows to their super shock ones. I never reached for the blushes as I found them a little harder to use.

MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks – These technically belong to my sister but she gave me the big responsibility of looking after them for her when she didn’t have space for them in her collection anymore. After actually checking them out I had to break it to her that they had definitely expired a long time ago so it was time to bin them!

Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator Palette – I got my hands on this limited edition palette after I fell in love with it on BeautyBay. I had it in my collection for months and months and honestly never picked it up. Instead of wasting perfectly good product I thought it was time to pass it along.

Chanel Universal Bronzer – First of all, this ‘universal’ bronzer is not at all universal. I had tried so hard to love this product because I had saved up for it for so long and finally purchased it. But it just never looked good on my skin! It has now been rehomed to someone who can actually get some use out of it.

What products have you panned or decluttered recently? Am I getting rid of any of your favourite products? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!

  1. I totally understand that! I’ve kept things that I hardly ever used just because I couldn’t bring myself to declutter it. I’ve been doing a little project pan with some of my older goodies to try and use them up as much as I can before they go bad. And I’ve stopped myself buying makeup for a few months!


  2. I always really like reading posts like this, because it’ll give me motivation to look through my collection as well and declutter products. I have a hard time decluttering things though! I want to focus more on panning items before buying new makeup.
