The Purge #2
sneaky peak of my camera in the reflection, hehe!
After my initial Purge post, I thought it’d be interesting to keep you guys updated on anything I decide not to keep. Because seriously, what girl actually DOESN’T WANT her makeup, right? I have a variety of reasons, so let’s get down to business, shall we? From left to right:
- H&M lip pen stick: Honestly, I just wasn’t feeling this color too much. It definitely did it’s job, which for me was helping me take baby steps into orange lips. Now a days I never really think of it, and I’m definitely being more cautious as to more stocking up on more natural products for lips. The urban myth that you eat 7lbs of lipstick every year is kinda….terrifying.
- Milani lip gloss, lipstick, and (not pictured) lip pencil: I just won these three products in a giveaway on Twitter, and wrote a blog post with my initial reaction of them. Yet with recent events, it seems like they may not be cruelty free anymore! Both Milani and Jordanna are brands to be cautious of, thanks to the heads up from Logical Harmony’s post. I haven’t grown fond of any of these products, so I’m happy to toss them out.
- H&M lipgloss: A friend of mine couldn’t stop raving about these glosses, which definitely peaked my curiosity! I mean, H&M is known for their clothes, not cosmetics! Yet in the end, this lip gloss wasn’t all she hyped it up to be. I’m really not a lip gloss gal to begin with, but my exceptions are my Ilia lip gloss in “Peek a Boo” and any of the Nyx butter glosses.
- Rimmel Scandaleyes: Rimmel is not a cruelty free brand, but I kept this just because I purchased it right before taking the cruelty free pledge. Yet I managed to get my hands on the Urban Decay 24/7 glide on pencil in a similar color, so it’s a lot easier to pitch this one.
- The Body Shop Tea Tree concealer stick: There isn’t anything wrong with this product, but it is absolutely too dark for my skin now-a-days. No used to keeping it if I don’t ever plan on getting tan!
Ever think of cleaning out your collection? Some good rules of thumb to keep in mind- mascaras technically shouldn’t be kept past 4 months and could go through your collection maybe 2-3 times a year just to see if you can filter out anything unnecessary. Have you done a purge recently? Or maybe this has inspired you? Either way, hope this keeps you on your toes!
