But instead of them just sitting neatly and unused in my drawers, I decided that my sister, cousin and niece would love to have them.
Wet n Wild eye shadows are one of the best in the drugstore, hence my reasoning to pick up almost the entire collection. I did save Silent Treatment and the Gilded Age for myself as well as a couple 8 pans. :) Also my eyes tend to water when I use them unfortunately.
I've been hesitating with the Flower Beauty quad in Smoke and Mirrors and creme eyeshadow in Orchiding Around. While beautiful colors, the quad is a bit chalky and I can't build up the color of the creme eyeshadow to my liking. I use my Maybelline Color Tattoos all the time and so this one sits.
These extra makeup brushes are just creating clutter. I have plenty of other backups and brushes aren't something I have a ton of room for if they are not being used. So here I have some e.l.f. and SOHO to go with all the eye shadow.
The 2 other palettes are filler items from my couponing adventures at Walgreens. They are amazing shadows but I haven't touched them aside from watching and a blog post that might still be in my drafts...
The Sephora eyeshadow is a Prisma Chrome in Moon Beam which I have used one time since I bought it froma blog sale nearly 3 years ago. Nice formulation and pigment but I have plenty of other gold eye shadows in palettes that I readily reach for instead of this one.
I have 2 swap products from Australia that I have never opened. A lip gloss and blush. Actually I do not like the way the blush smells so it is going in the trash!
Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder in Brighten has some life left to it. I just have other highlights that I use and quite honestly, most days, highlight is something don't have to even consider as a natural one creeps upon my face quite quickly in this humidity!
Same goes for the Physicians Formula Happy Booster in translucent. Too much sparkle for this lady.
The U by Ungaro was a blush from AVON a few years back. Super, super pigmented. It is just too dark on my fair skin and I have too many other blushes.
The AmorePacific Color Control Compact in Tan is also too dark for me. Such a shame because I love the feel and smell of it. This came from a Glossybox I believe.
I hope that these products find a happy home this weekend!!!
How are you managing your makeup collection? Is it time for an edit?
