Chucked stuff!

Please don't forsake me for revealing a truth that happened a few days back. I have been a makeup collecting psycho long back and now buy makeup or products that would only be used and not kept. I had collected so many items in blushers, lipsticks, eyeshadows and mascaras and was feeling proud until the day came.........

Most of these lovelies got expired and I feel so bad that I had to abandon them with a heavy heart. Few days ago I told on a blog that I have discarded 10 mascaras out of which 4 were Clinique. I have been collecting makeup products since 2005 and now its 7 yrs in a row.The story doesn't end there....




I discarded a looooooooootttttttt of stuff, reducing my 7 makeup bags to three with one case for MAC exclusively (whatever I did not throw), One case for miscellaneous brands and one for mascaras and lipsticks. I also have a plastic cabinet with 8 drawers which is filled to the brim with all those Urban decay and BH cosmetics palettes and many more.

So here's a general list of items I threw (not all of them though) mentioning mostly the brands I covet and brag about.

  1. Shiseido eyeshadow palettes, multi shade enhancers (3 to be precise, though keeping the case for a new purchase), hydropowder eyeshadows, powders, perfect mascara and 3 glosses.
  2. YSL Limited edition palettes (5 of them as they not only expired but changed color)
  3. Almost 15 MAC Mineralize eyeshadows as they all got old and unfortunately got fungus on them. I was advised to clean with Isopropyl alcohol and store but I did not take the risk. I might consider getting them Back to MAC.
  4. Millions  (exaggeration) of Oriflame eyeshadows, lipsticks, liners, foundations etc.
  5. Lots of stuff from brands like Revlon, Lakme (last product bought in 2008), Colorbar ( I never knew I had a small collection kept until I decided to discard), Inglot, Bourjois, Chambor ( last time I counted eyeshadow trios discarded were 9 and there are more to dig), Maybelline ( I have thrown away everything and promise myself to restrict buying from this brand now), L'Oreal and all.
  6. Four mascaras from Clinique and 3 eyeshadow quads bought from Strawberrynet
  7. Lots of stuff from Lancome, Stila and Smashbox.
Shamelessly I am admitting this and there is more that shall not be told out of utter shamefulness. Luckily I haven't thrown anything from Chanel and Estee Lauder.

So while arranging my makeup stash, here are a few pictures that I would love to share. Most of the other makeup is stored in the cabinet which I will post sometime later.


Some of the blushers


Mish mash of eyeshadows and blushers. (Lipsticks are stored already)


The MAC case (Kryolan traincase with MAC products filled to the brim. Shall do a post)

I had to throw stuff as makeup expires just the way relationships do. Do share what have you discarded recently. AND PLEASE DO NOT HATE ME! Btw if I ever giveaway some stuff or do a blog sale I shall keep you all posted.

Btw do listen to this mesmerizing song from Florence Welsh. Its my favorite this season along with Adele.



Till then,

Ciao

  11. Oh My GOD!!! Neeraj!!! they look untouched. I donno if i should laugh or cry. i know how it feels i just threw a mascara and a few eyeshadows and my heart hurts, and yea i threw them cuz i got a bad eye infection and im pretty sure its cuz of the mascara that i used that day.. i donno what youre going through. Poor you :( but theres always hope, the old wil be replaced by new :P

    1. oh they look untouched coz I keep them safe in the packaging for them to last longer. Mascaras spoil the fastest and I have learnt my lesson. So going to use only 2-3 mascara every 3 months and open a new one only after the older one is 'chucked'....wat say?

      Delete
    2. i couldn't agree more, its been 5 days that my eye is swollen cuz of that mascara. gotta go for another check up at the doc today, my eye has only gotten worse.:( i look like a freggin Ogre.

      Delete
    3. I know........u have to be very careful with mascaras actually...
