As you might be able to guess it is time for my final declutter installment, this one is all about lips, lipsticks, lip glosses, lip balms, liquid lipsticks and everything lip related. This one is also going to have a mix of styles, somewhere I show you all the products in that section and somewhere I just show you what I’m getting rid of due to having just so many lip products, I imagine this one is going to be the longest post yet so let’s not waste any time and jump right into it.
We’re going to start with lip balms and lip treatments, only two products leaving us this time around and the first is the Nivea A Kiss of Recovery, this was my go-to chapstick for a while and I mostly used this one up, it was a little bit old, I found something I liked more so I just tossed this one as it was its time. Sephora Lip Balm and Scrub in Tangerine, this just didn’t do a thing for me, wasn’t scrubby nor hydrating so that’s why this one just kept going along.
Next up are lip glosses, another area where there isn’t a whole lot leaving us, only two and both are mini products. The first is a Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy in Milkshake, I like plumping lip glosses alright but I just didn’t like this one and the color wasn’t really anything for me to jump up and down about. The other is the Lorac Alter Ego Lip Gloss in Goddess, which is a shade that I just won’t wear, I kept it around for a little while and kept thinking I was going to use it, but every time I put it on my lips I just wasn’t super excited about it so it was this ones time to leave.
It’s time for lipsticks and only three mini sized ones are leaving me, all three Smashbox Be Legendary lipsticks, I’m not really sure what the shade names are now but I know one is a bright red which I’m just not going to wear at all, one is a dark brick red which I am also never going to wear and the other one is too light of a nude I believe. So, none of these are really shades that I am going to use and enjoy which means there is no reason for me to keep these in my stash.
This one is kind of a mix of things but is mostly lipsticks, the first thing that’s leaving is an NYX Soft Matte Lipstick, which I believe they no longer sell so I can’t link you guys to it, I would suggest these anyway. This one has such a weird shape and I just didn’t like the formula, so off it goes. Next up are a couple Colourpop Lippie Stix, which I can’t really remember the names of but I also believe neither shade is still available so it doesn’t really matter. One is a deep red shade I will never wear and the other a nice mauvey kind of shade that I kind of like but have had for far too long, so it’s time. Next is Lipstick Queen in Saint Nude, this is not a nude shade and is a little bit too bright for my tastes, this is almost like a sheer brick red and is not even the slightest bit nude, so off it goes. The last in this photo set it a Tarte Lippie Lingerie in Racy, this shade is waaaay too dark for me and is just something that I’m never going to wear, so this little sample is going away.
And in this last photo, these are all liquid lipsticks that are leaving my collection, after doing that huge liquid lipstick battle I have acquired a ton of them so it’s time for some to leave. First is the Milani Amore Matte Liquid Lipstick in Adorable, this smells amazing and is an alright liquid lipstick and I have better ones in shades that look almost like this one. I have three Colourpop Ultra Matte Lips in this post and I don’t think any are still available, so I’m just going to talk about all three right now. I hate the formula, it was the first liquid lipstick I ever used and I was super impressed with it but after trying out a ton more these really aren’t that great and I never found myself reaching for them. Lottie London Slay All Day in #tbt, I said it in a past declutter now but I don’t like this brand, this liquid lipstick dries out my lips and doesn’t really last super well so it’s time for it to leave. I bought a bunch of these to test out which one I wanted to wear to my wedding, turned out the answer was none of them, but it was this one’s time. The product I’m talking about is the Beauty Bakerie Lip Whip in Fortune Cookie, these are fantastic but just not the shade for me. Lime Crime mini in Elle, this is just not a shade for me, I quite enjoy Lime Crime liquid lipsticks but I’ve settled into the colors I like and am getting rid of ones I don’t. Tarte Lippie Paint in Exposed, this is just something I don’t like the formula of, simple as that. Tattoo Junkie Lip Paint, these are not great, these lasted pretty well but these dried out my lips quicker than anything else did and I hated it, so off this one goes. And the last one is the Wet ‘N Wild Catsuit in Emerald City, I believe this one was limited and while I love the formula I am not sure what possessed me to pick this one up, this is a shade that I’m never going to wear.
And that completes my declutter series, this one was pretty successful, I got rid of quite a few things and it felt really nice letting products go. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the results of this declutter for me but will probably do another one in the near-ish future.
