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 😄😍)

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 🤣 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: RE: Show Me Your Declutters!

Ohhhh - So glad you found a new holy grail, @eshoe


I like the NARS eyeshadow base, but love Urban Decay Potion Primer even more - have you tried that one? 


I also sometimes use NYX Milk stick on top of my primer potion if I want my eyeshadow to pop even more. <3

RE: Re: RE: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Tamara76, it was seriously between the Nars and the UD. Then I read something about the UD applicator being annoying, and with no other first-hand knowledge, bought the Nars. All I knew is that anything had to be better than what I was using🙄

Re: RE: Re: RE: Show Me Your Declutters!

@eshoe Oh yeah, the UD Primer Potion doe foot applicator stinks - I just don't use it and instead squeeze a little out of the tube and use my beauty blender micro mini to apply. <3

Re: RE: Re: RE: Show Me Your Declutters!

Ooh, thx for the tip, @Tamara76. I have never used nyx, I just did a quick search on another site and they have a cottage cheese in addition to milk stick? Laughing but I will have to try the milk now.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

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




👇 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 😉



Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Shosh85  Ooo that’s a lot of lippies that you de-cluttered! 👍🏼 Which colour is the INCredible lipstick? Did you dislike the formula?

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Guessgal The INCredible lipstick is actually clear with a pretty little flower inside.

I really only got it cuz it was pretty– but it smells and tastes awful, like plastic and chemical. 🤢

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Shosh85  Oh goodness, thanks for letting me know. I'm going to make sure to steer clear of this one!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Great de-stash, @Shosh85!!!   Sorry the Tarte Shape Tape doesn't work for you - it is my all time favorite concealer! <3

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Tamara76  I actually reeeally loved it at first, until I started noticing it dried me out too much and accentuated my fine lines. 😕

Still on the search for my holy grail!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Shosh85, I'm the same way with certain scents.  I allergic to vanilla scented items so I need to get rid of anything with vanilla scents.  In addition, places keep sending me men's cologne, even though I'm not purchasing any men's items (why??).  I give them to my husband but he never wears them - I need to just get rid of them.

RE: Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@curlychiquita, there should be a pet peeve thread for those who receive men’s samples but have no one to pawn them off on🤨

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@curlychiquita I also can’t have any fragrances that have a strong vanilla scent, they give me migraines that seem to last forever and nothing works to get rid of them! My mom can’t tolerate vanilla either! 🤯

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@curlychiquita Allergic to Vanilla?! That stinks! – do you like the scent?

I really wish I could wear different fragrances, but I just end up getting bad headaches and migraines. My husband doesn’t like perfume or cologne either, so it works out well! 👍

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

 I can eat Vanilla,  but I'm allergic to something in synthetic scents.  I get hives and then my blood itches under my skin, if that makes sense.  Like if I put vanilla scented purfume on my wrist it will itch under the skin up my arms - the itch isn't on top of the skin but underneath.  I can usually avoid it but sometimes it's sneaky, like in hotel soaps. @Shosh85Unidentified @keana1

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 “body 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!

Ohhhh - These will make someone very happy, @mganeshaly!!!! <3

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!

@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
