Makeup Declutter – Fall 2017

Hi, guys! I’ve been decluttering a ton of makeup recently. Not all of it will be in this post because when I first started cleaning products I had no idea there would be so many. Anyway, these are the products I recently decluttered.

FACE

NYX – Color Correcting Concealer Palette

This product was expired. I have enjoyed working with this product. I really like the pink for under eyes and the green works well for covering redness. I don’t really use any of the other colors but I probably could use the regular concealers for contouring. These blend out well and provide a good about of coverage

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! I recommend and plan to repurchase this palette.

Milk Makeup – Blur Stick

I was sick of this product. I don’t hate it, I don’t love it. Decluttering because I was tired of seeing it. It works okay, I think it’s overpriced and doesn’t do a lot. If you are looking for something to blur your pores, try POREfessional by Benefit.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Neither. I’m just not a fan. I do think that Milk is a very innovative brand and will try out other products from them in the future.

L.A. Girl – Pro Conceal in orange, yellow and green

This product was expired. I received this as a gift a year and a half ago or so when the makeup world kind of blew this concealer up. I tried to use the yellow and orange to color correct under eyes but they never really worked for me. However, I love the green for when I have a LOT of redness. Such a great price as well!

Would I repurchase/recommend? I recommend the green one if you have a lot of redness and I will repurchase it. The other two eh not so much. If you have deeper skin tones the orange might work well for you.

Maybelline – Fit Me! Stick in 130

This product was expired. I’ve never really been a fan of this product. It was always kind of cakey, drying and streaky. I love the original Fit Me! or I did when I used it more. This might be good for very oily skin.

Would I repurchase/recommend? No, but I like the original liquid formula and recommend trying that out.

Cover FX – Illuminating Primer

This was expired. This was a nice primer I just prefer Becca’s Backlight Primer.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Give it a go, you might love it.

MAKE UP FOR EVER – Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer (mattifying)

This is about to expire. I’m going to give it one last try but so far it just isn’t doing anything amazing.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Not really. Try Optical Illusion by Urban Decay

EYES

Too Faced – Shadow Insurance

This was expired. Oh, my God, I love this stuff. I have high standards for eye primers because of this products. Leaves it on all day, creases are unheard of, adds pigmentation to eyeshadows. I can’t speak highly enough about this stuff.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes. I’m trying to use concealer in place of it because the $20 size is too expensive in my opinion and has more product than I could use in 12 months. I will probably end up purchasing it anyway because I love it so much and I will without a doubt get it if they come out with a holiday set including a fun or mini size.

Kat Von D – Tattoo Liner in Trooper

This was expired. Thank you, Lord, for tattoo liner. I swear this stuff is amazing. Like the shadow insurance, I think this is a bit too expensive. I recently picked up a Wet N Wild liner similar to this and if it doesn’t work as well I’ll just “bite the bullet” and buy one.

Would I repurchase/recommend? YES! Very good.

Sephora Collection – V for V.O.L.U.M.E. Mascara in Marsala

This was expired. I used this every once in awhile if I was doing a purple look or thought it would add something to the look.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! If you’re looking for a colored mascara give this one a go. It’s $10, which is a little much but it’s worth it.

Maybelline – Micro Brow in Deep Brow

This ran out. I love Mirco Brow. I ended up getting NYX’s brow pencil because they didn’t have my shade at Target but these are very similar. I do prefer NYX’s and suggest “splurging” for it.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Maybe, probably not.

Wet N Wild – Color Icon Glitter Single in Bleached

This was expired and honestly just looked gross. This is literally less than a dollar. Stop what you are doing and go buy this.

This product is really good. It’s a pressed glitter. Adds a lot of fun to any look in my opinion. It’s a little sparse of glitter but easy to build.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! I’ve already bought two more.


e.l.f. – Eyebrow Kit in Medium

Probably expired. I’ve always kept this as a backup in case my eyebrow pencil ran out or something but this will probably expire (or already has) before that day will come.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! It’s great for a backup. Also if you like gels/powders to fill in your brows you should try this.

LIPS

Carmex Orginal

This was expired. Everyone knows Carmex, everyone uses Carmex. Who knew they expired?

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes, of course. I have 4 on hand most of the time.

Ulta – Butter Balm Lip Gloss in Belle

Expired/repurchased. Love Belle. The formula of the gloss is so good and lasts all day on top of lipsticks. This is a great topper.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! You need this! Inexpensive and adds luxury to your look instantly, even if you don’t like lip glosses. Plus it’s on sale (3 for the price of 1) at Ulta right now.

CHEEKS

bareMinerals – bareSkin® Sheer Sun™ Serum Bronzer

This was expired/ never used. Received in a Sephora Play box. I was excited to try this out but it’s just really weird. Disturbed my foundation when I applied it. Also tried under foundation and that was just a hot mess.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Maybe if you like serums. Otherwise not so much.

tarte – blush in oasis

This was expired. Oh man, I am so bummed this is discontinued. Paaarty is very similar but oasis did something special to my cheeks. I have tried a few other colors from their blush line and love them! The price is a little crazy but otherwise, great blush.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! Expensive but worth it. I personally have my eye on the holiday blush set.

NARS – Laguna Bronzing Powder

This was so expired. I got this in a kit from Sephora, it was one of my first buys there! It’s very nice, makes a great bronzer or crease shade.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! St Lucia by e.l.f. is similar but I’ll probably get it and Orgasm in a mini size.

e.l.f. – All Over Color Stick in Pink Lemonade

This was expired. Eh, not a fan. Pretty color it was just a bit streaky. Also not a huge fan of creams. This was beautiful on the lips and eyes. Also, this is marketed as a highlighter but it really has little to no shine.

Would I repurchase/recommend? I might repurchase it just because it was a pretty color and I like e.l.f.. If you like creams you might enjoy this. It’s so inexpensive why not try it out?

Revlon – Powder Blush in Naughty Nude

This was expired. This was actually the first blush I ever owned and liked! I used to never wear blush but this added a natural flush. Amazing formula as well.

Would I repurchase/recommend? Yes! It is really nice, has a good price for the formula. If you like blush, give this a try.

Sephora Collection – Ombre Obsession Blush

This was expired/ never used. I wanted to love this. I bought it from I think eBay in new condition. The highlighter arrived broken and got product all over the rest of the blushes. I fixed the highlighter with alcohol. Tried to fix the summer all over the palette. It just didn’t work which is such a shame because I wanted to love it.

Would I repurchase/recommend? This was limited edition. If you want a blush palette try tartes! Link here

SKINCARE

tarte – Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment

Empty product. I really like this because it made my under eyes hydrated, didn’t really see an effect for brightening.

Would I repurchase/recommend? I think this product is worth getting a sample of, it may work for you. I would repurchase because I love Algenist’s eye cream/balm.

KORRES – Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

This was expired. I got this in a Play! box and I love! It just does something to my skin and makes it glow, softer and smells great.

Would I repurchase/recommend? A bit pricey, but I will repurchase this and I think it’s worth you trying out.

Josie Maran – Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm

This product was getting on my nerves. I honestly have no idea what you need to use it for. It doesn’t prime my skin, add a glow, anything.

Would I repurchase/recommend? No. Skip this and go for her argan oil.

tarte – Deep Dive Cleansing Gel Rainforest of the Sea™Picture

This product was expired. It works fine, nothing to write home about. Got my makeup off easily.

Would I repurchase/recommend? My holy grail cleanser is a gel and costs $6, so I will pass on this and go for that.

Neutrogena – Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream Night

This was expired. I used this on “laugh lines” just to see if it would reduce any or make the slightest difference, it didn’t…

Would I repurchase/recommend? Splurge for OLEHENRIKSENTruth Serum®, you won’t regret it.

What have you been decluttering lately?

Note: Certain products I love, certain products I hate. Things I love might not work for you and things I hate may be your holy grail. Please do not take any of my opinions personal and be aware that things that work for me may not work for you, vice versa.
