I often hear girls talking about the latest beauty products that they have, own, or they’re about to buy. I hear them saying, stuff like, “Omg, I have to get that new Tarte tape shape concealer”, or, “Omg I’m going to sephora to try that new Fenty Beauty highlighter because, girl, I gotta have it”. Can you relate? I certainly can. But, what about the beautyproducts that you don’t use? You know, the lipstick that your Aunt Geraldine bought you 2 years ago but it’s not even close to something that you would wear so it’s sitting on your dresser. Or, that ugly nude tarte lip paint that they give you when you ask for samples at Sephora, do you still keep that, or do you throw it away. Seems familiar?
Well, today I’m going to shine the light on some of the beauty products that I own, but don’t use.
- Urban Decay All Nighter Long Lasting Setting Spray
Look, I’ve tried to give this a chance. I really have. A friend of mine, told me it was good for oily skin, so I hurriedly went online to sephora.com to purchase it, but I was severely disappointed. I’ve tried putting on a little but I still end up draining oil, after 10 mins. I’ve tried putting it on before foundation but still the same results. I’m sorry all nighter setting spray but I wasted money on you. It’s still sitting on top of my dresser and I really don’t know what to do it. Maybe I’ll ask my friends to see if anyone of them want it
- Tarte Tartiest Lip Paint ( Nude Color)
I received this, the first time I purchased makeup from Sephora for my birthday as a gift and that was like a year and a half ago and I still have it. You’re probably saying, “Oh but that’s so tiny, you should be done with that by now. But no honey, it’s not even my shade. I look horrid when I put it on. It’s still laying on my dresser. Anybody want a nude shade of lipstick? Call or text me.
- NYX Wonder Stick Highlight and Contour Stick
Look, I used to believe that these contour highlight sticks were the bomb. No one could tell me that they weren’t the bomb. If you can relate put your hands up! Then I discovered that they weren’t the bomb and it’s like my life shattered into pieces. Haha, I’m kidding, it’s not that serious. But every time I wear this it feels like i just poured a bottle of oil on my face. It doesn’t feel creamy to me at all. It just feels like oil and until I started used the fenty beauty contour, I didn’t realize. I really don’t know what to do with them, so I’m probably going to use them for one of my blog posts and then throw them out when they’re done.
- Benefit Cosmetics 3D Brow Tones
I literally have no idea what this is for. I asked for samples at sephora and they gave this to me. The girl said, “We have this, it’s not your shade but you can use it”. Haha, I tried using it but I honestly didn’t know what to do. Do I put it on my eyebrow? Or under my eyebrow? In my eyebrow? See? I’m confused.
I need to find some ways to get rid of these things. Or, maybe I’ll sell them. I don’t know. I’m not going to keep them piling up on my dresser. I could be using that space for the new products I like, you know what i’m saying?.
I don’t want to become a hoarder. My philosophy is always this “Throw out things that you don’t need, or give them away”.
Do you have the same problem as I do? If so, what do you do with unwanted makeup? If you can relate comment below. Let me know what you think
