Small June Empties; Look in my Trash!

june empties

Today I bring you my trash. I do not have much beauty trash this month, sense I am trying so much new stuff. But, here is what I did finish up!

Equate exfoliating makeup wipes: I just use these to remove swatches. I just buy cheap makeup wipes, and these were what I happened to grab.

E.L.F Daily Face Wash: I did a review of this product ( *Win or Waste* ELF Daily Facial Cleanser) I really say all I can about this product here; so, check it out

Rating 0/5

Yes, I changed my rating scale, you will see how I have changed it, in coming up reviews!

Revlon  Color Burst Matte Balm “StandOut”: This was my go to lip product for years. From the time it came out until I decided to go cruelty free. It was my favorite thing. But, now that I do not use Revlon, I had to find a new baby. I did use my last back up this up.

Rating: 4/5 (4 because Revlon harms animals.)

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer “15” : This is a great concealer, but again not a CF brand. So I will not repurchase it. I decided to use it up, and finally did!

Rating: 4/5 (4 because Maybelline harms bunnies)

L’oreal True Match Concealer Crayon “N6-7-8”: I was using this for a while to contour and liked it. Did I love it? No. Would I recommend it? Even if it was CF, no.

Rating: 2/5

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Mini: I already bought a full-size. If you don’t have this or haven’t tried it, you need it! It is amazing.

Rating: 5/5

Too Faced Shadow Insurance: This is my favorite shadow primer. I have a couple samples and a full size in my stash. I wanted to get through this itty baby sample, and I did.

Rating 5/5

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer: This product exaggerated my pores, so it did not do its job. The packaging is cute, but that is the only thing I like about it. I honestly didn’t even use it all up, I just couldn’t bring myself to pass it along because, I hate it that much.

Rating 1/5 (1 for packaging)

What is in your beauty trash? What do you think of these products?

*Makup Declutter Eyeshadow*

I knew this would be the hardest part, and it was. Making my first sale of the products that I am selling, today helped me a lot though sense that money is going to a makeup order!

* I am not showing all the shadows I have remaining- or the ones I am starting with, because I have a few series planned, and I don’t want to spoil anything! Remember, my decluttering process is growing and I will be showing more shadows and other items that I will be passing in on, as they are decided on.*

Single Shadows

mds

Lately I have had this strange need to buy single shadows. It was really hard to get rid of any, and the ones that I am passing along, I had to force myself to do. Let’s begin!

Wet n’ Wild “cheeky”- This pink is super powdery and way more trouble than it is worth. I am really liking shades of pink lately, but I have better shadows that are similar. Going to a family member

L’oreal “Green Promenade”- I really like this shadow line. I actually have kept a lot that I want to find cruelty free dupes of before I pass along. This one just isn’t pigmented, so I am going to let my family pick through this (along with a ton of other makeup) next weekend!

L’oreal “Argentic”- This is another shade that just isn’t pigmented. I am also passing this along to family. I have swatched it quite a bit.

Cover Girl “Tapestry taupe”, “Mink”, and “Brown Smoulder”- I am passing these all along for the same reason. I have these exact shades, but 1000 times better in cruelty free form. I have messed with these quite a bit, so I am going to give these to family and not sell. It was a bit hard to pass these along, because I do like them, but there is no sense in keeping a worse version of something I own.

Palettes:

Palettes weren’t as hard to move away from because I have SO many. Let’s just get into the ones I am passing along and where they are going.

NYC Lovatics BY Demi- I used this once, in a post. It is nice for the price, but I have so much like it. It also is not cruelty free, so might as well pass it along. I am going to sanitize and sell this item!

NYX Sex Bomb- I have never used this item and just don’t see myself reaching for it. I am going to sell it.

CoverGirl Notice Me Nudes- I bought this b/c of Tati and it just wasn’t as great as she made it seem. Not much pigmentation. Going to a family member sense I did use it quite a bit.

Revlon Photo Ready “Metropolitan” – I have only swatched this item, and I know my mom really likes it. She has used it. I am going to give it to her!

Wet n’ Wild Poster Child- I have played with this some, but I am never going to use this. I am just going to let it go to a family member before I change my mind!

Sonia Kashuk Eyes on Textured Nudes- I love the matte and shimmer version of this palette, but this one just doesn’t have the same pay off. I am going to also pass this on to my mom, she has been wanting shadows with more shimmer, maybe she can make use of this.

Wet n Wild I’m Getting Sun Burnt- This trio is really messy and the shadows are too soft. The super dark brown broke and has just mixed with the other shades. I am going to throw this one away.

Rimmel Afternoon Tea-This has like no pigmentation. I don’t even want to give it to someone else because it just sucks. Trash.

Hope you enjoyed this declutter! What shadows should I pick up? What types of looks do you want to see??

What Make-Up is Travaling with Me? + The Make-Up Bags I Use to Travel

I want to start by talking about the bag itself! If you have read my first few post than you will remember this bag. It is a NYX make-up bag that I got with a set of NYX make-up at Ulta. This is my favorite bag to travel with because it’s clear so I can see all my products easier, and it is plastic which makes it much easier to clean!

How I did my make-up in High School: A fun little throwback.

hs1

While getting ready this morning I was trying to figure out how I was going to attempt to look like a human being, I had a great idea. I wanted to do my make-up how I did back in the day, I have only been graduated since December 2013, but you get what I am saying! So, I raided my make-up collection to see if I still owned the same products that I used, and not so shockingly I had them all. Obviously not the EXACT same products I used, I have no interest in putting an avoidable concoction of bacteria on my face. If you want to know how I got my super simple look (which you can view below), and see what I think now about my old holy grail products, please keep reading <3.
