Makeup De-Clutter // What I Got Rid Of

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Recently, I de-cluttered my Makeup Stash and threw out some of my old items that I just don't like or use any more and I thought I could include them in a post to kind of give mini reasons why they didn't work for me.

Firstly, I threw out my Covergirl Exact Eyelights mascara as it had dried out. I enjoyed using this for a while as these mascaras are tailored to suit your eye colour but I just have mascaras that I prefer much more now. I also gave my sister my Rimmel Scandal Eyes Flex mascara, this was in perfectly good condition - I just don't like it. The brush is far too big for me and it results in spidery looking lashes that are just a big mess so it didn't work for me. 

I also gave my sister my Bourjois Smokey Eyes palette. These shadows just aren't very pigmented and it requires a lot of product to make a slight bit of colour which isn't generally what you are looking for with a smoky eye. This just didn't work out for me and I prefer other shadows so I gave this away. I also gave away my 17 shadow thats a purpley/pink shade. This is perfectly fine but I just will never wear that shade and its much more suited to my 10 year old sister who likes to have a play around with adventurous makeup. 

I also threw away my Soap and Glory Brow Archery as it had dried out although I have repurchased it as I really like this stuff. I got rid of a red lipgloss that is way past its use by date and gave my sister a pink Avon lipgloss as its much more her colour than it is mine. 

As for face products, I threw away an empty Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer although I have repurchased it because I love it! I also got rid of my Stila Liquid makeup Foundation and cover up stick because these are way out of date and I also am not a fan of the smell or texture in general of these. 

I threw out my Covergirl concealer (I don't know what this stuff is called as its scratched off). This was the first face product I bought years ago and although it was ok then, its just too pinky now and I have much better concealers. I also got rid off my Fresh Minerals Primer, I don't know what it is about this product but its just feels horrible and leaves a white creamy kind of sheen in places of your face. I don't know how to describe it but this stuff is just awful, my friend tried it and found it the same so I should have gotten rid of that a long time ago. 

I know I didn't get rid of much but these are just products I don't like or I had used up.
