I have a bad habit of hoarding cosmetics but I recently decided that enough was enough and it was time to do a bit of a clear-out!
I took the time to properly go through my collection. I didn’t want to start chucking everything away but at the same time; I knew I had to be strict and let certain things go.
Both the Garnier and Rimmel BB Creams were out almost immediately because I’m not a fan of either. I really disliked the sticky texture of the Garnier cream and — as was also the case with the Rimmel version — the colour didn’t particularly suit my skin-tone. There was also the few bits that are pretty but don’t get much use like the sparkly red Catrice nail polish. I have enough clutter around the house so I had to firmly bin anything that I wasn’t reaching for on at least a semi-regular basis. Also of all the magazine freebies I’d amassed, at least half got tossed — some because they weren’t the best quality and others because they just didn’t suit me.
Not all the products that got thrown out were bad though. The likes of the Essence eye-liner and the Rimmel pressed powder are amazing but I’ve had them for absolutely ages so they just had to go. I’d have no problem repurchasing these in the future — it’s always good to have some reliable products on hand!
At home, I keep all my cosmetics on top of my dresser. It’s now looking decidedly barer so the obvious solution is to start filling it up again! I’m particularly interested in finding a good (and affordable!) CC cream and blusher. If anyone has any product recommendations, I’ll be glad to hear them!
