I recently went ahead and had a little clean out of my makeup collection. I think it’s so refreshing to remove any unwanted or unused products to make room for new releases and to also ensure that you’re not using products that are out of their expiry date. It’s so important that makeup users are aware of the expiry date that is set on each product, you don’t want to be using a mascara on your lashes if it is out of date as it can cause possible infections. This is the same case for face products too, they can cause a rash, acne and infections also. I will say, I didn’t throw massive amounts away and a lot of it I actually gave to people because the quality was good and I did at some point enjoy the product but I simply no longer use them and didn’t want to see them go to waste.
Whilst going through my clear out I thought I would with you guys what I would re-purchase from the items that I threw away and whether they’re worth having. Admittedly, not all of these products were out of date I simply threw them away or gave them away because I didn’t like them or they weren’t very good for my skin.
I did give away or throw some products that were totally disappointing, for example the Urban Decay Illuminating Trio was the biggest waste of money I have ever purchased. Along with the Urban Decay Original Primer Potion. Both of these products were awful and especially the illuminating trio. The trio were supposed to be highlighters but they had very little to no pigment to them. They were pretty much just shimmer and looked as if I had thrown small glitter pieces at my face. They weren’t even long wearing either. The primer potion just felt totally unnecessary and I feel that concealer works just as well than paying a fortune for the primer potion.
Another products that I was disappointed to be throwing away was the Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lipstick in Old Hollywood. If you don’t know already, I love these liquid lipsticks by Sleek. The formula is incredible, the pigment is outstanding and they’re not drying at all. However, this shade was awful. It was so patchy, it cakes up and literally would lay in ever single crease on my lips (yes, I do use a lip balm before applying them). I was shocked to dislike this product simply because I love the shades Birthday Suit and Velvet Slipper.
Finally, a product that was also really disappointed with was the Maybelline Sculpting Stick (I’ve totally forgotten the name). It is a cream contour and highlight stick and I think this was the most awful cream contour I’ve ever used. It just didn’t blend well and when it didn’t I found that the pigment was awful and just didn’t show at all. It was a total waste of money and I wouldn’t ever repurchase this.
