February was an interesting month for me not so much in empties – you can see that I didn’t finish much up! But I did a HUGE destash of lippies!
I’ll go through my empties first, then share pics of what I tossed!
NARS Climax Mascara
I already shared how much I enjoyed this mascara here! I started using it in October and pushed it past the recommended three month shelf life once opened to a total of 5 months.
This mascara cost $24.00 and I wore it almost every time I wore eye makeup!
Will I repurchase? I would, yes. Except there’s always something new to try and currently I’m using Younique Epic Mascara and I have a couple others on tap to try.
Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes Night Calming
Just the monthly usual usage of facial wipes…a two-pack of these costs $12.99 at Ulta.
Will I repurchase? Of course! I have an unopened pack!
Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser
I mentioned this facial cleanser in my last favorites post – I am pretty in love with the Pixi Rose line!
Will I repurchase? Already did, but I replaced this with a container of Young Living Orange Blossom Facial Cleanser.
L’Oreal Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara
I don’t use a whole lot of waterproof mascara, but I like to have it on hand. I’ve sadly only used this tube a handful of times since opening it last summer. So I pushed the shelf life of this quite a bit. But I needed to get rid of it because it was open too long. This cost me $9.99 at Ulta.
Will I repurchase? Possibly. It gave me volume and length but despite being waterproof, it did smudge on me on hot days. I am at a point where NOTHING right now – not even the Climax mascara I love – is smudge-free on me.
In total, I used up $64.98 worth of product this month, bringing my 2019 total to $168.64!
I’ve been on a mission to pare down my beauty stash for months, getting rid of this and that. I’ve gone through my lippies before but I wasn’t – in my opinion – brutally honest enough about what needed to go, and what I just don’t use.
I got rid of some glosses that didn’t smell good and stuff I just no longer needed or wanted. I just have so much, still! It’s a process.
So tell me, what did YOU use up or destash this month?! Sound off below!
