Decluttering #1

Left to right: Rimmel in 12, L'Oreal Glam Shine, Collection Cream Puff, Garnier BB Cream, TBS Eye Definer, Rimmel in Kiss Me
A load of different nail varnishes I don't like the colour of
My mom keeps going on at me about using up products I already have before buying new ones. And I know she is right, but I have a lot of things that I bought ages ago and I just know I will never get round to finishing. Either I don't like it or it just doesn't suit me.

Garner Miracle Skin Perfector (Daily All-in-One BB Cream)
I really liked this when I got it, and it is actually nearly finished but it has just started to smell a bit and the consistency is definitely off. I just think it is time to say adieu. It was always a bit too dark for me anyway, because this was the original so it didn't come in a specific colour. But I did used to love using this in the summer.

Collection Cream Puff in Fairy Cake
I don't know why I bought this. It's hideous. The texture is alright but it smells like cheap vanilla ice-cream and the colour just isn't amazing. 

L'Oreal Glam Shine in Sand Crystal
There is nothing wrong with this product but the colour just doesn't really suit me (although it is actually nearly empty so I have worn it, eek). It is also just getting a little old, tatty and is taking up unnecessary space. I do quite like the L'Oreal Glam Shines though, as far as lip glosses go.

Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 12
Again, this just really does not suit me. It's too much of an orangey tomato red to suit me I think and again this has been hanging around for quite a while. I actually used to wear this quite a lot when I knew nothing about makeup (not that I'm a pro now...) so there's not that much left.

Rimmel Colour Show Off Lipstick in Kiss Me
I just think this colour looks really tacky against my pale skin. I used to love it but I probably haven't worn it in over six months.

Bourjois Eyeshadow in Citron Givré (I forgot to add this to the top picture, apologies!)
I'm not going to lie. I bought this because of the Liberty's Limited Edition packaging. The colour seriously sucks on me though- it's like a pale, shimmery lemon colour and it has taken me so long to accept that it was a mistake buying it. So long sucker.

The Body Shop Eye Definer in Rich Brown
This came in a little set but I have to press so hard for any kind of colour to show up and I don't really want to be stabbing my eye so see you later irrelevant eyeliner.

All the Nail Polishes
I find talking about nail polish really boring, I just don't like these colours anymore! I think a lot of them were free in magazines (aka Nail Inc) or gifted to me. I'm sure my sister will take some of them...

Some of this will be going in the trash (if it's old) and the rest I will send to Give and Makeup. If I find anything else I don't really want I will add that to the package I'm sending away. I am also sending them some shower gel and soapy things but I don't think that is particularly interesting!

  1. Hey Annie! I actually love all the shades of lippie you're getting rid of - those orangey reds and hot pinks really do it for me! Then again we do have completely different colouring :)

    1. I like orangey reds and pinks too but these just don't QUITE work on me. It's just I have other lipsticks I prefer so I neglect them!

  2. Fab post! I always look back at make up/clothes I used to wear and wonder what made me think it looked nice x

    1. I know it's funny! 'WHAT WAS I THINKING'

  3. This was a really interesting post :) I love pretty much every colour of nail polish you have here! I'm such an addict though, so that counts for nothing ;) agree with you on the body shop eye definers. Really poor pigmentation and very waxy. Absolute nightmare. Into the bin they go! x

    1. Thank you! I don't necessarily not like the nail polishes but I have ones that are nicer colours/better quality so I just never wear them. :)

  4. Such a shame about the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick! I really wanted to try one x

    1. They are really good! Don't let this put you off :)

  5. I find it really hard using up products till the end too! But I should more, instead of wasting my money
