July 2017: Beauty Declutter

Let's talk about decluttering! I have been decluttering my makeup collection since 2016 where I started my minimalism journey. Since then, I have ups and downs with my minimalism journey and after 1 and half years, I thought I should track my journey and refigure out what I want to do with this lifestyle change.

The things that I'm doing right now are not as significant as the one I did in 2016 and I wanted to make sure things are going well before I commit properly. So, instead of purging my makeup collection all at once, I decided to do bit by bit and tried out things that I haven't use in a long time and decide whether I still want them in my collection. If the item is brand new, I'm selling it to online selling websites like gumtree or ebay. If I have used a substantial amount of product, I'm thinking either to give away or if the item is really old, I'm throwing it out.

This time round, I have four makeup items in my declutter bin.
Sephora Wonderful Cushion
If you have been following my YouTube channel and this blog for a while, you'll know that I've put this product in my favourites. It still is one of my favourite foundations to date but I'm not into the cushion foundation trend like everyone is favouring over normal liquid foundation. I love the formula of the foundation itself but I don't like how it is packaged since it's difficult for me to apply and figure out how much I want to use with my brush or beauty sponge. Hence, I'll be parting ways with it.

Touch In Sol Flawless Skin Top Coat
I have no problem with the foundation itself. The formula is great and it lasts on my face for quite a long time. The problem that I have with this foundation to make me declutter was the range of shades. I have become tanner in this few years and my shades has changed substantially so it's difficult to match the shades with a lot of my foundation. This is my reason for decluttering this foundation.

Touch In Sol Feel Like Honey Moon Skin Base
Although I put this in the beauty declutter pile for July, I feel like I need to try this more often. One of the reasons why I'm putting in the declutter pile is that it's so sticky on my skin to put on my makeup and the foundation doesn't blend well when I apply this base. However, it is very moisturising on my skin and I loved that. That's why I'm a bit conflicted. I'll be trying one more time and I'll put my review up on the website.

Essence Lipstick in All About Cupcake
I loved this lipstick for so long but these days, my shades of nudes have changed to everything. So, with my current tanned skin, this kind of colour doesn't suit me anymore. And another reason is that it's been more than 5 years since I bought this particular lipstick.
