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 ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜)

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 ๐Ÿคฃ

 

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!

Got through some of my lippie collection earlier today and got rid of a few other things I bumped into along the way. A very small start but feels good to make a little bit of room ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm tossing these either due to age or the fact I just don't reach for liquid lipsticks at all any more.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline Good job! I've got some DoC that probably need to be decluttered as well...

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305 Thank you ๐Ÿค— Yeah, I honestly cannot pinpoint when I got any of these products but it's definitely been too long. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline I was living in Miami when I bought the DoC and that was 6 years ago so... ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305 Hahaha honestly, that sounds about right for my time frame as well ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿคฃ

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline I still have some ABH liquid lipsticks, which are probably the worst offenders. With all the hype around the Dior Forever Liquid Sequin, I was thinking about the ABH Sad Girl and Sarafine lipsticks, which were some of my favorites. If they brought those back with improved formulas, Iโ€™d be all over it.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305 Oh my, I just had a flashback to the past! ๐Ÿ˜ ABH Sarafine was absolutely iconic! ๐Ÿ’„

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@QueenMarceline Rip beautiful liquid lippies lol. Great job!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@Samtian Hahhaa indeed! They should've probably gotten the boot last year but I just wasn't strong enough. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Way to declutter @QueenMarceline!

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Thank you kindly, @JoSometimes ! ๐Ÿค—

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

I usually forget to take pictures of my declutters since I just put them in makeup bags and take them with me when I go visit family, but I recently did a big declutter of my whole makeup collection (nothing minimalist, though) and wanted to share before I pass them on or toss them out. Most of them (while on the older side) are still in really good condition so I'm hoping I can find someone who wants them.

I love the Melt stacks but never consistently used them. Same with the Boudoir Noir and Mulan palettes. The Mandalorian palette is pretty much brand new. The PMG was a purchase I still regret since it was an impulse buy. The colors were never cohesive for a full look to me. Brunet and the ND mini nice but the colors just don't suit me. Huda Sapphire is pretty but I have a lot of blues and it's not a color I reach for often.

I am a blush fiend and just need to let some older stuff go. The Dior was never the right color for me (too pink). I have plenty of highlighters and wanted to keep ones I reach for more often.

I've had these Givenchy powders forever and never got into them. I tried them again now that they're hyped up and I just came to the conclusion I'm just not a powder person. The bronzers are nice but I have plenty still and wanted to pass these on while they're still good.

Some random eyeshadow singles and a brow powder that's the wrong shade.

Some random products I've only used once. I hate the smell of the La Roche cream, hate the texture of the Ordinary moisturizer, the Jordan Samuel spray was intense, the Saltair oil is nice but I don't love the feeling of oil on my skin, and the Ouidad I don't even remember what I thought of. The Alterna I haven't tried.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

So much decluttering @makeitup305! I see some pretty cool things in there but if they donโ€™t work thereโ€™s no point keeping them. 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@JoSometimes I know, that's why it's easy to hold on to them but hopefully they make someone else happy. I had a couple of people come pick up stuff this week and I hope they enjoy them.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305 Thatโ€™s nice of you to donate/give them away instead of just tossing them out! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

Oh dang @makeitup305 at least you know when it's time to just let go! 

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@lmaster Iโ€™d have a much harder time getting rid of a Mothership or a big ND palette, even if some of them are past their prime by now. That would hurt lol

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305  great job with your decluttering! I have been doing a little bit off and on, a few products here and there, but I definitely need to do better. I just have so much, it's gotten overwhelming. I love your approach of passing on products you don't want anymore but are still good - I wish I knew some people IRL who are into makeup that I could offer things to. I just feel so guilty about throwing out anything that's still good and could still be used.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@caitbird My family members arenโ€™t very into makeup so most of the stuff they have are products from my collection. Iโ€™m part of a Facebook group called โ€œGive it to your neighborโ€ thatโ€™s specific to my (small) city and Iโ€™ll post pictures on there with the disclaimer that theyโ€™re used and theyโ€™re responsible for sanitizing. I wonโ€™t post cream products or glosses. I havenโ€™t posted this yet since I want to be home in order to hand it to the person but Iโ€™ve had success other times.

Re: Show Me Your Declutters!

@makeitup305  that's a good idea, I should look and see if there's anything like that near me (there might not be, I live in the boonies lol). I should also ask my mom if she wants any of my giveaways - she's not as into makeup as I am, but she does use some.
