Show Me Your Declutters!

I received an order today with four new lipsticks,

(Lancome L'Absolue Lacquer...I will never ever stop mentioning these every-dang-where πŸ˜„πŸ˜)

but had absolutely no room for them in my containers. While the thought "buy more containers" crossed my mind for a brief second, I quickly dismissed it as I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with too much stuff. I'd been pulling out one or two here and there, but today was the big reckoning!IMG_20180706_201441032_HDR.jpgSorry I didn't stage a better pic, but that's 55 lip items that are now gloriously gone from my stash!

This is only the stuff I pulled today; I have a small train case packed full of the other lippies (and some palettes) that I've been slowly pulling over the last couple of months. Do I still have more I could get rid of? Yeah, most likely...if I was on the fence, I erred on the side of keeping it rather than tossing. And I didn't swatch every single keeper to weed out similar shades, so there's probably still a good bit of overlap in my berry-heavy collection. But my oh my, I feel soooo much better now. I found not only things I had forgotten about, but things I really had no clue I even owned in the first place 🀣

 

So...do you have too much too? Ready to clear up some space and salvage a little sanity? Share your declutters with us; we wanna see it! 

RE: Show Me Your Declutters!

One lone item here, but it has been one of the worst products I’ve used and I am so annoyed with myself for sticking with it this long. After posting my everyday look on another thread, I realized I was just repeating the same mistake over and over again, day after day. 4 grams of tarte lid lock were causing me to dread what should be my favorite part of my routine, my eyes. So I did some research and decided on the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„What a difference!!! I applied my makeup this morning around 9, and when I cleansed my face tonight after dinner, my eyes looked JUST like they did this morning! It was pretty unbelievable. The Nars was so easy to apply, and it worked. I was just about to toss the tarte, but it’s such a pretty jar (glass, too) that I am going to empty it and find another use for it. I am SO relieved! Thanks for the everyday makeup thread, @Shosh85. Without it I would still be applying bad makeup πŸ˜‚

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Still have SO much to go through, but here is my first declutter pile:

πŸ‘‡ Surprisingly enough, these are all samples I didn’t ask for, haha! I actually think a lot of these smell great, I’m just pretty sensitive to perfumes and heavy fragrances. These will probably end up going to my sister and  teenage niece- they are always willing to take these things off my hands πŸ˜‰

RE: Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Shosh85 I feel your pain about scents sensitivity. It seems older I get I become more sensitive to perfumes or perfumed products. Recently Im really enjoying light, fresh, crisp scents with notes of lemon, grapefruit or/and tea. Out of all the perfumes in your picture Dylan Blue from Versace is probably the freshest, lightest scent. I’m sure your sister and niece will find a number of wonderful parfumes here

Re: RE: Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Thanks for the pointers, @Zvezdochka!! Most perfumes and colognes give me headaches or migraines. I usually use things like β€œbody splashes” that have light scents. I am currently using DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom. It’s the only actual perfume I’ve tried that doesn’t give me a headache. It has a crisp, fresh, fruity and floral scent. Even my husband who is also sensitive to scents likes this one and encourages me to wear it! 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

So these are the first things I'm getting rid off. Just have to get myself to stop procrastinating and find them a new home!20180711_200703-1.jpg

 

 

 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@mganeshaly, I have that Kat Von D Studded Kis sampler, too, and I can't figure out what to do with it!  I think I'll have to declutter it, too.  Great set of declutters!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@mganeshalyDang girl you have some awesome stuff your decluttering.

@Anastasiya13 Unfortunately they just don't work for me but they are indeed good products!

@suzyo Hahaha I just don't like those two. The shea one is too rich for my hands and my hands get all sweaty with the almond one for some reason. I love the rose one but these two just don't work for me unfortunately.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

I'm inspired by this thread, and have an extra few days off so I'm decluttering around the house anyway... have now sent all this to makeup purgatory:

All nice, just not for me. l haven't been able to bring myself to put any of this in the bin, but at least now it's in a separate box to foist on the first lucky recipient I can find πŸŽπŸ˜‚

 

Basically I just need to never spend money on anything matte, opaque, or mid-toned again... they never stay in my collection. Satin, cream, and "blur" finishes are my matte equivalents.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Great job, @fieldsofclover!  I’m not surprised to see that Naked Basics palette in your pile! I don’t blame you for being done with it!

I think I have like 3 of those little Smashbox palettes.... I definitely need to de clutter those!

I feel the same way about mattes. I always go for anything that says butter, cream, satin, etc.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@fieldsofclover Ahh the Naked Basics! I know I have that somewhere, collecting dust.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@fieldsofclover Ooooh I regret not getting that Marc Jacobs lippie. What about it didn’t you like that it finds itself in your declutter pile? 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@alexasteph My natural lip color is a pretty dark mauve. I thought it would be an MLBB but it was a shade too light 😿

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@fieldsofclover I see. That was why I didn’t pick it up initially, and I never got a chance to find it in store. The FOMO still hits me though, because even thought I was worried it may be too light, I wasn’t able to ever try it. 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@alexasteph PM me your address, I'll send it to you!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@fieldsofclover That’s so generous of you, thank you!! πŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€—

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

RIP to naked basics - I know you tried to make it work for a long time. I purchased it a while back when it was a weekly wow and as soon as I opened it I thought, β€œwhy are 3 of the 5 shades the same?” and then it was returned πŸ§πŸ€” you definitely have much better options in your drawer! @fieldsofclover
