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!

@curlychiquita I like to save up multiples of the same lip sampler cards and then put them into a palette so I can actually use them more than once.

 

A few years ago, a bunch of us collected the UD Vice lip samplers at Sephora and Ulta and made our own Vice Palettes - it was so much fun! <3

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Tamara76, that sounds like a fun idea!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

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

@mganeshalyAww, well at least it makes more room for the products that work for you hon

Gasp! Not Loccitane hand cream!

@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!

OMG!  So sorry those Huda lippies didn't work for you!  I love them!   Great de-stash, @fieldsofclover!

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!

@Shosh85 @ohheyitscindyk @fieldsofclover OMG - I hate those Naked Basics mini palettes so much!  I kept almost pulling the trigger on the Ultimate Basics palette on sale, but then I look at my mini palettes and talk myself out of it!  They are just too cool toned on me and tend to look grey - my daughter on the other hand loves them!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Tamara76 Well, at least yours didn’t go to waste!πŸ‘

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Shosh85 Between my daughter, friends, coworkers and other family members, there is always someone happy to take beauty, makeup, clothing and jewelry off my hands if it doesn't work out for me. Smiley Happy

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

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@scott1201 I'm pretty close to panning it, too! Talc just ain't for me in general, I've realized. I had to talk myself down from Peachy Mattes because (most of) the colors are perfect for me but I just can't with mattes anymore. I'm better off putting $40 into one good semi-sheer lipstick than I am spending $10 on another matte anything.

 

The Perricone No Eyeshadow Eyeshadow is doing everything I wanted the Naked Basics to, so at least that got solved eventually. Even if it went 50% off the DAY AFTER I bought it for 20% off πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ h/t @RGbrown
