Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

[ Edited ]

Whatever you call yourself... a makeup addict, skin care junkie, a sample hoarder - I am sure you have something to confess. Is it an out of control makeup stash, bins overflowing with samples or shelves filled with skincare? We want to hear it! Share with the community and let us know how you stay organized (pics welcome)

 

If you have tips for organizing out of control stashes we want to hear from you!

 

ps: I love organizing so love to hear what others have to say!

pss: I did do a search and couldn't find anything recent close to this topic. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@veronika23 I've had several products I hold dear get discontinued or changed recently, so I have been buying multiples of everything I think I can't live without.  I stay organized by stacking them like a display at a store in my powder room closet.  I have shampoo, eyeliner and flat iron spray so far.  I would totally hoard mascara or lipsticks, but I've found that they dry out.  

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@greeneyedgirl107ohhh that sounds pretty actually!  I can just imagine it now.  I love organization and displays... yeah I'm a weirdo Smiley Very Happy


What are some of the products that got discontinued?

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@veronika23 Eyeliner: Sephora Contour Matte Gel in Espresso Your Love (discontinued)

Dry shampoo: Alterna Caviar (product and delivery system changed; the company says the product is the same but the ingredients say otherwise)

Mascara: NYX Doll Eye Volume (brush changed; formula seems different)

Blush: Bare Minerals in Tease (discontinued; IDK how recently, but found this out when I went to re-purchase)

Lip liner: Sephora Queen Quartz (discontinued; IDK when, but found this out when I went to re-purchase)

 

And I'm running out of my last tube of Sephora Lip Attitude - Star in Mauve Scandal.  

 

Thanks for the support!

@greeneyedgirl107  awww man! That's a lot of stuff! Sorry Smiley Sad  Whatever you do make sure you keep a bit of these products so you can find a dupe later. I regretted so much that I back 2 MAC stuff.  I wish I had kept all my stuff throughout the years... so if you really love them make sure you keep enough product to test for possible future dupes. Trust me on this Smiley Wink

So I have a confession... I've been on a mask kick lately and even though I do NOT need anymore I just bought one last week and looking to possibly purchase another... OMG I really don't need anymore at the moment. Help! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

It's ok, I'm not allowed to go to a nearby town with a huge Korean section more than once every few months.

 

Why?

 

I always leave at least 50-100 sheet masks richer and $150+ poorer.

 

So, you're in good company.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@veronika23 You're not alone!  I have enough skin care to last me a lifetime, yet I continue to purchase new things. I guess I can't resist the allure of the next best thing!

although after moving and having to pack all this crap up, it made me reconsider how much I own,

and how little I use. Have you tried shopping your stash or going through everything for some perspective?

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@unfungirl  I recently got a bunch of different samples and a few masks so yeah I am definitely shopping my stash... The mask I bought last week is the GlamGlow Sonic one. I missed the first time around and couldn't resist a smaller version of that blue mask! The one I have my eye on is the new Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask... Will probably wait to purchase that one since I have some masks I haven't tried yet but still interested in it Smiley Very Happy

 

I used to be pretty good at keeping all that skin care under control but lately I have too much stuff I want to try so I went ahead and got a few samples... plus all the deluxe samples from Sephora. I figure I'll try stuff out now and be ready for the fall/holiday sales with my fav picks from that... unless something new and exciting comes out! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@veronika23 i looked at that tatcha mask too but mainly for that pretty ombre packaging. My name's is Dani and I am a beauty addict.....Smiley Happy

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@sonnydeefirst step is admitting it right Smiley Very Happy My name is V and I am a beauty addict Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@veronika23 yes, it is. I talked myself out of it with "you can do that with nail polish on your toes."

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@sonnydeehaha nice!  Maybe when I have less or during a sale Smiley Very Happy

In the past year I have really started to explore the world of makeup and I am quickly becoming an addict hahah!

 

I love this thread, and wanted to share now that I finally got myself organized with the help of acrylic boxes from Amazon!  

 

I purged a ton and feel so happy getting ready in the morning now!! IMG_3703.JPGIMG_3707.JPG

Nice!  Lovely set up!  @talifromcali

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Love my acrylics too! @talifromcali

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

I love this thread, the pictures are so satisfying to look at. 

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

I haven't re-organized in a while, so things are a bit messy, but usually I'll rotate my perfumes seasonally and try to test new samples immediately and give away any I don't love or want to test more.

 

Okay, my pictures don't seem to be uploading, the only one showing is my IKEA makeup tower, with spring/summer perfumes, skincare backups and samples.  The 4th shelf down I have a bunch of clear shoeboxes from The Container Store to keep various items, semi-organized by item type.

And I found these mini-shelves at TJ Maxx to store some samples. Another one above fits on the shelves above, with some of my meteorites, palettes, and deluxes.

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

@sister13That is some impressive organisation there. I probably need to invest in either drawer sets or something like your tower soon so that I can house all of my cosmetics... great idea!

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

Beautiful!  I love it!   @sister13

Re: Confessions Of A Beauty Junkie

OMG those shelves are super cute!!!!
