After 3 weeks of traveling while wearing simple makeup and only using stuff from my small makeup bag, I though I’d be excited to come home and utilize the rest of my collection.
Instead I was overwhelmed with how much makeup I have.
So I decided to go through my makeup and pull out two piles:
- Makeup that is bad and I don’t use because I hate the color/how it performs. This was a small pile.
- Makeup that is okay to great that I just don’t reach for because it gets lost in my collection. This was a bigger pile.
The makeup I determined was bad, I put away to be reviews and then given away/thrown out. The makeup that wasn’t given enough use, I put into a box to use over the next few weeks. Am I not reaching for it because it gets buried underneath other makeup? Am I not reaching for it because it doesn’t have a place in my collection? Am I not reaching for it because I have other products that duplicate this?
Time to find out!
I’ll be updating my experience with what I get rid of in the end. The things I’ve already gotten rid of (given to a friend) are…
-NYX soft matte lip cream in London (the color was awful on me)
-Julep eyeshadow 101 in Bronze shimmer (color looked bad on my skin tone).
