Makeup Declutter/Empties | Ep. 2

Hi Beauties,

How is isolating treating you? I hope you are all keeping safe and healthy during this strange and somewhat stressful time. I have been using my time wisely and have decided to cleanse my life of everything I have outgrown. That includes makeup! I have decluttered a TON of products so this is what I am going to share with you today, I have also thrown in some empties for good measure. 

If you want to see my declutter process, check out my Instagram where I have been putting out IGTV’s showing you through my process! There is more to come and I know you won’t want to miss out on them 😉

First up we have the Sleek Contouring and Blush Palette. This has been in my collection for such a long time and I am sad to say that as my collection grew, I really neglected this product. I am not getting rid of this palette because I don’t like it or because it’s ‘bad’, I am simply getting rid of it because it is so old and needs to be thrown out! 

Next is The Balm Put A Lid On It Eye Primer. Again, like most of the products mentioned in today’s post, this is one of those ones that I brought with good intentions but sadly just never used. It has been in my collection for a while now, I have maybe used it a handful of times and now it is too old to pass along to anyone else. Anybody else guilty of this?

Now we have the MAC Cosmetics Velvet Teddy Lipstick. I picked this up years ago through the ‘back to MAC’ program. This is where you take 6 (I think) empty MAC jars, foundation bottles or full-sized lipstick bullets into your MAC counter, and they swap you for a lipstick of your choice! It is a pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Anyway, I picked this up years ago! Loved it, used it a lot, and now it smells a little funky so I thought I better make room for something fresher! 

Next up is the Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape Concealer in the shade light natural. I am proud to say that this one is actually empty! I have been loving this concealer for a long time and I was determined to use it up so I could make way for some new goodies. This is the second tube of this full-coverage goodness that has had a workout in my makeup routine, and I can easily say it won’t be the last. 

Up next is the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liner in the shade stix and bones. I am so sad to say that I just couldn’t get myself to fall in love with this tube of glittery goodness. I have another shade of these liners that I really do love but I guess this shade just wasn’t for me.

Now we have the L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24hr-Matte Foundation in the shade 22 radiant beige. I did have WAY too many foundations in my collection before I did this declutter. Some I have had for years, others are newer to my collection. This one hasn’t been around for a long time because it was actually a repurchase of one I used years ago. Sadly, my skin just isn’t up for the matte foundations as much anymore. So this one needs to move along. 

Now it’s time for the NYX Cosmetics White Eyeshadow Base. As you can tell from the photo, I haven’t gotten much use out of this. While it was good when I first purchased it because it was the only white base I had before I purchased the Plouise bases I just didn’t want to touch anything else! Bye friend. 

Next is the Ulta3 Get Glossy Lip Gloss in the shade fierce fuchsia. I have said in previous posts that I am not much of a gloss wearer as I don’t like how my lips look and feel when I have a gloss on. When I was lucky enough to receive some glosses from the amazing Ulta3, my mind changed. This shade of pink, however, is not for me. I kept the other 2 they were kind enough to send me, but this one can move in with a friend. 

I am sad to include my Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter in the shade into the blue. This one technically isn’t an empty product but I might include it in that category. Why do I say that? Because I had to get rid of it because it has dried out so badly that when you swatch it, literally nothing comes out! I haven’t had it for too long which is a bummer. I definitely loved it while I had it! 

Next up is the Benefit Cosmetics The Pore Fessional Primer. This is another proud empty of mine! I love using the mini versions of this product because it is so easy to take with you everywhere you go. There is nothing worse than an over the top, large and bulky product. But the bad part about it being a mini is that you do tend to go through it quickly. I may repurchase this again in the future, but for now, I want to test out some new and different things. 

Now we have the Maybelline Master Conceal Concealer in the shade fair. You may be able to tell that I have actually never opened this product! I had repurchased this a while back during a Priceline sale when I was using up another tube of this product. After I got rid of the last one I had good intentions to use this one up too. But I guess that never happened! Time to pass it along to a friend. 

Next up is the Tarte Cosmetics Rainforest of the Sea Foundation in the shade fair-light sand. This foundation shade is a pale gals dream! I loved it from the moment I got my hands on it. Which was lucky because I actually purchased it online! It is a little old now and doesn’t smell the best so it was time to get rid of it. You may see her reappearing again in the future though. 

Second last is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Primer. I purchased this because one of my favourite YouTube Beauty Gurus loved it. But I never really got into it. Sadly now it is old and expired so it has to go in the bin. Bye! 

Last, but certainly not least is the MAC Cosmetics Diva Lipstick. This actually belonged to my sister before it made its way into my lipstick drawer. I honestly didn’t know how long she had owned it for before it came my way (gross?) but I decided to give it a chance. Now I when I look at it, I can tell it expired looooong ago! 

Did you enjoy my makeup declutter? What have you decluttered or emptied lately? Make sure you leave me a comment and let me know 🙂

That’s all for now Beauties!
