I wanted to start 2019 with a small makeup declutter. I brought in a LOT in 2018 and I figured it was time to let go some of the items that I haven’t reached for in a long time. During 2019, I would like to keep a bin of items I want to declutter throughout the year to keep better track of what I am and am not using.
This declutter is quite small since most of my collection is from the past year or so and there are a lot of items that I want to actually use up.
Lipsticks / Lip Products
The majority of what I am cleaning out is lip products. I haven’t reached for most of these in years but didn’t ever want to get rid of them. Some of them are getting so old though that I don’t even know if they will perform the same way.
I liked most of these when they were in their prime but I rarely wear bright colored lipsticks. However, I am also getting rid of a nude lipstick. The Maybelline Color Whisper was my first nude lipstick, I remember going to Target to buy it! Now I have much better nude lipsticks.
Here are the lipsticks I am decluttering:
- ColourPop – Lux Lipstick in Afterglow
- Maybelline – Plum Perfect Lipstick
- Revlon – Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor in Devotion
- Maybelline – Color Whisper in Bare to Be Bold
- Covergirl – Tempt Seduction Lipstick
- ELF – Matte Lip Color Pencil in Wine
- Rimmel London – Stay Glossy in Treasure Hunt
I still LOVE the ColourPop Lux lipstick in Afterglow. I actually got this and the lipstick tube was broken so it has lipstick all over it. ColourPop sent me a new one so this one just has to go.
In the same order from ColourPop as the Afterglow lipstick, I also received the Sol and Mar shadow palettes. These both came broken as well. I repressed a few of the shades but unfortunately the packaging has completely fallen apart. I am probably going to try to depot some shades but since there are some broken ones, they are really messy.
Here are the eyeshadow palettes I am decluttering:
These are great little palettes! ColourPop sent me fresh ones so I am keeping the good ones and getting rid of ones that came broken!
The other two items that I am decluttering are kind of random. One is a sample of the Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara that I used in one of my sample Sunday posts. I really didn’t like it when I used it and haven’t reached for it since. It made my eyelashes clump together so I don’t feel bad about getting rid of this little mascara.
The other random item is the NYC loose powder eyeshadow / Sparkle Eye Dust. I actually threw this into my 18 in 2018 project pan but only used it a couple of times before the finale. I really wanted to use this up but it is somewhat messy and I decided that I would rather use one of my many pressed eyeshadows. It is really pretty once on the eyes but I have so many similar eyeshadows.
Final items being decluttered:
- Lancome – Monsieur Big Mascara
- NYC Sparkle Eye Dust Powder Eyeshadow
And that is it for me today. I know this isn’t a HUGE declutter but this does free up some space in my collection. These items just weren’t being used for one reason or another. Let me know what you are decluttering (if you are getting rid of anything)! I would love to know!
