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!Sorry I didn't stage a better pic, but that's 55 lip items that are now gloriously gone from my stash!Sorry 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!

@Mellmars1185 Yes, yes... VINTAGE tarte. That's what I'll be calling it. 😂😜

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline That Tarte was definitely one of my first 5 Sephora purchases haha.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Samtian Oh my, that's quite the throwback. I think if I remember correctly I got this on clearance at ULTA (likely around the time when they were discontinuing it). I really liked it because it was gentle and minty. 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline 

Oh wow, that Tarte scrub...I went through a few of those some years back, bought on sale right as or after they discontinued them, and yup, yours is probably long bad by now...fairly certain my last one turned like three years ago lol. It was such a nice scrub though, one I had forgotten all about! 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@RGbrown Yeah, it somehow got swallowed behind my journals and books, it was sitting kind of upright so against the drawer so you really couldn't tell it was there without taking out all the books and journals, which I oddly have a lot of in my drawer 😂I remember it having a really nice mint scent.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Liquid eyeshadows are done.  i haven’t really touched my liquid shadows in a while, but as I was swatching them I took note that there are some real beauties I need to get some use out of. For now these are gone.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface I need to remember to actually USE my liquid shadows.  I had to toss one last week because it dried out and was past reviving.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@CookieGirl1  What do you use to revive them? MAC fix plus or a glycerin base?  Maybe clear mascara…? 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface I've been able to temporarily revive them with both Fix+ and/or eyedrops but usually the effect only lasts a few weeks and you can only use that trick a few times before the shadow is completely toast.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

I've been liking the lilah b. Mini Aglow™ Primer + Setting Spray Duo for rehydrating my liquid Stila shadows @CookieGirl1 @heartsmyface . Seems to be working okay for a little while but I'm running longer term experiments currently.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Oh interesting, I like these additional options of rehydrating liquid shadows @haleyvvvv @CookieGirl1 @heartsmyface I use Inglot Duraline, but I haven’t done it often enough to know if there’s a certain point where it won’t hold up anymore.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Guessgal I've never owned the Duraline but I know that most people say it works really well for them.  I guess I've gotten to the point where I really don't wear my liquid shadows much anymore so when they finally dry out to the point of no revival I'm not overly heartbroken about it.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface I really haven't been using my liquid shadows at all, either! I should go through mine and see what's dried out.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@curlychiquita  They’re great for quick looks on the go (like finger applying before landing) but not really part of my regular routine cause I use a lot of powders and if I want to touch something liquid up throughout the day over powder it usually becomes a mess. i’d rather just use powder. 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface Gone for now? What do you mean by that?

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Mellmars1185 @I just meant that the rest swatched alright but I’ll have to test their performance.  There may be more liquid shadow casualties to come. 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Ouhhh I’ve been tackling small decluttering projects lately!  yesterday I did eyeliners and lip pencils.  Everything has been sharpened and dipped and wiped down in/with alcohol:)

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface ,

 

Oh, my gosh!  The "Hearts My Face" face on the container!  It's wonderful!  💕

 

Admirable work with your eyeliners and lip pencils, too!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@tsavorite  Just pretending it’s not MONTHS later. 😗 🎶 

Ha the heart appliqué was a fun Japan find!  Thank you, I’m almost ready to go for another round of decluttering.  Baby steps.  I really do want a more visually clear and usable space.  

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@heartsmyface Loving that mug and what a great declutter. I did one about 6 months ago with my lip pencils and finally I can actually see everything/move it so I know how good that feeling is 🙂

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline  Ahh, I feel guilt for not responding months ago! 😅.   isn’t it great being able to sift through things and see exactly what’s there!!?   it makes it much easier to use things.
