Howdy, my fellow declutterers! Here we are again talking about make-up and to be honest, I have some exciting news! I have finally added a few new items to my project pan bag. As some of you may already know I started this journey last year where I seriously sat down and looked at my hoarding habits of make-up and realised… It’s a disaster! So much money spent on items I did not need yet bought because of my favourite celebrities or influencers. I highly encourage all of you to start your own little project pan and see how long it takes you to finish a product and you will notice that with time your interest in buying every new shadow ever is not the best idea.
So, let’s review my beauty bag from February to March:
- Elf hydrating face primer – Purged
I finally made the decision that this is not the best primer for me, and it does not suit my skin type. I now use moisturizer instead as it makes my skin feel less caked on.
- Maybelline Lash sensation – Using
I am not impressed with this mascara. It’s not as volumizing as I thought it would be and not very comfortable to apply which is also a tad sad. I think I will use it for the rest of March and purge.
- Rituals miracle lightweight foundation – Using
I’m enjoying this foundation even though it’s a little dark for me. Once I apply concealer and powder it evens out and looks really natural which I love.
- TheBalm sexy mama anti-shine translucent powder – Using
Again, I am not using this enough to so much as scrape the tip of the powder. I think I will end up purging this as it makes no difference to my collection and is super old.
- Rituals miracle bronzing powder – Using
I love this little bronze palette, it’s so natural. I really enjoy how it blends and that it does not look like mud on my face. Wonderful little palette.
- Revolution vivid Baked highlighter – peach lighting – using
So far so good in terms of this highlight. It’s natural enough unless you pack it on strong and it blends pretty easily. I see myself using this for the next three months at least and see where it will go as I seriously have so much highlight.
- Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette – Purged
Finally, at long last. I have been tired as hell of this palette and thankfully one of my friends wanted to take it over. Obviously, everything was disinfected before handing over and both of us are healthy. I think the palette is beautiful, but I was so tired of it after a year and a bit of usage. I cannot even.
- TheBalm BalmBeach long-wearing blush – Using
This is a nice blush and I think that a few more uses will hit pan. I will use this for a maximum of three more months and purge as it is super old.
- Catrice liquid camouflage high coverage concealer – Using
This concealer is great! So nice to blend and sit perfectly on the skin without caking and obvious clumps. I really enjoy it, but I find it hard to grab the product with the applicator which I think is because I used it too much.
- Huda Beauty obsession eyeshadow Coral – New and using
I replaced my Anastasia Beverley Hills palette with this one and I cannot describe my disappointment. I don’t know why people are loving Huda products when this is the ashiest palette I have ever used. The shades are not pigmented, they do not blend and when they do blend, they blend to nothing. I am super disappointed by this palette and I am thinking about purging it.
So, this is my update on the beauty bag declutter project pan! Hope you are enjoying these and make sure to tag me in your progress pictures!
