Makeup Declutter/Empties | Ep. 1

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!

L’Oreal Paris Base Magique Primer – I had this product in my project pan for this year, and I  am happy to say that I am done with it! It is such a good pore filling primer and I would definitely try and get my hands on it again in the future once I test out some other primers. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Lipsticks – I feel so sad getting rid of these mini lipsticks because they are so beautiful. But I just don’t know what I was thinking when I purchased these because if I am being perfectly honest, pink lipstick shades and I aren’t the best of friends. I just don’t like how they look against my skin. So these lovely lipsticks don’t go to waste I will be sending them along to a family member who I know will get so much use out of them. 

Australis Cosmetics Fresh & Flawless Powder – this was another product that I featured in my project pan items for this year and as you can see it’s pretty much empty (finally!). It is a super affordable dupe for the MAC Cosmetics powders and I have already opened a fresh one. 

Rimmel London Stay Matte Powder – I feel like I have had this in my collection forever, so it is definitely due to go in the bin! 

Tarte Cosmetics Maneater Mascara, Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara & Maybelline The Colossal Mascara – all of these beauties are pretty much empty! I feel so accomplished to finish so many amazing mascaras. I definitely want to repurchase the Tarte and Maybelline ones in the future. 

MAC Cosmetics Pro Longwear Concealer – another product that has been in my collection for far too long. I used to love this concealer so much because it is super full coverage and doesn’t budge all day long. However, now that I am older and my skin has changed I find it too thick for under my eyes so I never really reach for it anymore. 

Glamglow Glowsetter Setting Spray – I am so glad that I tried out this mini product! It is such an amazing setting spray! I definitely want to pick up the full-sized product. 

NARS Cosmetics Foundation – I feel like I should have gotten rid of this foundation a while ago simply because it is so not my shade. However, I tried to make it work and wore it on the odd occasion. It has now expired and I would love to repurchase it in my actual shade. 

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipsticks – I am so sad to be saying goodbye to these gems but they are all expired so I am no longer able to use them. I definitely will be repurchasing my favourite shades in the future! 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette – now this may come as a shock to some of you because this palette was so highly wanted and talked about for such a long time within the beauty community. I hardly reach for this palette because of two simple reasons. One is that I don’t enjoy the undertones of these shades on my skin (I feel like they all turn out really dark and a lot of the shades are so similar) and I also feel super uninspired when I look at this palette. For those reasons, I will be sending this off to a better home where it can be used and loved. 

Tarte Cosmetics Maneater Palette – yet another eyeshadow palette that I just never reach for anymore. I loved this when I first got it because it is a great blend of neutral shades in a small, travel-friendly palette. 

Violet Voss Drenched Metals Palette – although I am all into the bright bold colours lately, and this palette definitely comes under that heading, I just never find myself wanting to reach for this palette. It has a great mix of shimmery colours but I find it hard to want to use this palette as I have to mix and match with other palettes to create a full look. 

What are some of your recent empties/decluttered products? Did I get rid of any of your favourites? Leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
