I’ve always felt I have too much crap so I decided to take pictures just to remind myself how absurd it’s become but I realized it’s actually very very very miniscule compared to what other people have. But anyway, I’m thinking of giving some stuff away because I really don’t use everything so if you think I love you enough and you find something you like drop me a line. I’m not parting with everything of course.

Foundation: Mac StudioFix Fluid, Mac StudioFix Powder, Mac Mineralized Skinfinish Natural, Mac Mineralized Satinfinish, Kate Liquid Foundation, Shiseido Maquillage Lasting Liquid UV, RMK Creamy Foundation, Maybelline Angelfit, L’oreal TrueMatch, Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, and a horde of mineral makeup stuff I won’t bother to enumerate. And out of all these the only actual keeper would be Kate, although the Shiseido one is new so I’m still trying it out.

Blush: Stila Push-up cheek color (I have another unused one because it’s a set of two), Benefit Benetint, Benefit Posietint, Benefit 10, Nars Exhibit A, Nars Desire, NYX Mocha, Bare Minerals Warmth, and mineral makeup stuff again. The NARS blushes I am keeping for life, as well as the Bare Minerals one (it’s for when I’m really really pale). The Benefit stuff I tried to love so much but I actually hate them because I get these tiny bumps whenever I use them.

Obviously I’m not so into lip things because I always have chapped lips and I can’t really give these away because that would be unhygienic. But anyway, from left to right: Nars Chihuahua, Stila it gloss, Smashbox O-Gloss, Ettusais, Nivea, Maybelline, Mac Creme Cup, Mac Viva Glam V, Mac Fanfare, Stila vanity fair kit lipstick, Nivea strawberry, Burt’s Bees, Carmex, Eyeko Fat Balm, and a Borjouis miniature. The only one I use regularly is Carmex – it’s my savior.

Mascara: L’oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes, L’oreal Telescopic, Fasio Shock-proof, Fasio Hyper-stay, VMV, Benefit Bad Gal Blue, Maybelline Lash Discovery, Maybelline Cat Eyes, Fasio I-have-no-idea-wat, Maybelline Define-a-Lash, Kate Mascara Base, Kate Gel Mascara, Shiseido Majolica Majorca, Fasio Mascara remover, Givenchy Phenomen-eyes, and a Clinique sample. Now ideally you should only have one mascara at a time because you have to chuck them out after three months or so but I’m nuts. See I only have like five lashes on each eye so I have to make the most out of them. The best one I’ve tried is Majolica Majorca; however it just a bitch to remove. For everyday, L’oreal Telescopic is good. Givenchy is really nice but it’s not waterproof which is such a bummer, and it’s expensive to boot.

Brushes: You know you have too many brushes when washing them becomes a chore, and yet I still stalk brushes online. Anyway, a lot of them I’m willing to part with except the Mac ones, of course. And the flat-top buffer brushes. And the nice foundation brush.
Anyway, that’s that. I actually thought I had more than this so it actually made me feel better that I don’t have as much unnecessary junk as I thought I had, if that makes sense. So now I’m off to get more junk. ^^
