I did it!
I don't know if any of you re-call a post I did a couple of months ago, where I set myself I little task to use up as many makeup and beauty items as possible.
I absolutely detest owning so many beauty products... It's not necessary, and no person needs to own 15 different mascaras. You may ask 'well why did you buy so much?' and the only answer I could give you, is because I was going through a phase where collecting makeup products was deemed 'cool'. Back in the days where I watched YouTube beauty gurus showcase their makeup collections, and I thought 'I want something like that'. The day has come where I find everything I own completely unnecessary- honestly I'd love to own a foundation and a couple of mascara's.
I made myself use up all of the makeup products I own, not including any crazy blue eyeshadows or anything that is not 'every-day' type makeup, and I must say I did damn good! That's not to say I'm stopping! There's something extremely satisfying when you finish a makeup product and toss the container in the bin. My makeup drawer looks so much cleaner and better now. I'm thinking of going through the stash and throwing away products that I haven't used in a while- event though I did that not too long ago. I may even go to the extent of throwing things that I don't think I'll ever use (however that would just be like throwing away money).
I will quickly run through the product's featured in the picture above, just in case any of you are interested:
- Britney Spears Curious perfume
- Kate Moss Lilabelle perfume
- Jennifer Lopez Live Luxe Perfume
- Rimmel Wake me up foundation
- MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural powder
- MAC lingering eyebrow pencil
- Maybelline eyebrow pencil
- Make Up For Ever face and body foundation
- Collection Collagen curl mascara
- Rimmel Day 2 night mascara
- Benefit Bad Gal lash mascara
- L'oreal Telescopic mascara
- L'oreal Volume million lashes mascara
I'm aware that this may not seem like a lot of products, but boy was this hard work!
Expect another 'empties' post in a couple of months, where I will (hopefully) have showcase even more product than I have in this post!
Have a great week :-)
