It’s been a fair amount of time since my last makeup declutter. I try to do one every six months or so. I have been on a ‘No-Buy’ with moderate success. I have broken it a couple of times for new items – but far fewer than I would have at another time in my life. That being said, I felt like my collection was getting too cluttered so it was time to evaluate and toss some items.
My Z-Palette suffered a terrible accident a couple of weeks ago. I already tossed some clear fatalities but was putting off going through the other casualties. I decided to toss the four most damaged colors. While inevitable, it was a little on the sad side for me because these are some of my most used colors. All of the small square eyeshadows are from Lorac Pro palettes.
The last two were a little harder. The Nars lipstick in Dolce Vita is ancient – you can actually see how the packaging has broken down and become sticky. I plan to eventually repurchase this sheer, natural lip stick eventually. The Em Cosmetics is just such a lovely bright color which is not available anymore. I have a dupe in my collection so I decided it was time to let it go. you can see the weird discoloration if you look at the actual lipstick.
What’s on my list?
I think I’ll probably eventually replace the Nars Lipstick. It’s just such a flattering color and the sheer formula makes it so easy to apply to lips. As I’m going to have to replace my everyday tinted moisturizer soon, I am not planning on buying anything else in the near future – instead I’m going to focus on skin care, especially in the summer months. You can never have enough SPF. God knows I need it with the Spanish Sun.
