The Ultimate Lipstick Declutter | Lipsticks I Don’t Need Anymore

lipstick declutter pinterest

Lipstick is the makeup product I accumulate the most. Usually, lipstick is affordable unless you’re getting some Christian Louboutin lipsticks. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved wearing lipstick. Last year, I discovered Colourpop and I got A LOT of liquid lipsticks from them. They were just so cheap, I couldn’t help myself. My lipstick drawer was getting out of control, and I noticed a lot of these lipsticks went unused. It was time for a lipstick declutter. Today, I will be sharing my lipstick declutter. Let me know if you’d like to know which lipsticks I kept!

The Colourpop Cosmetics Ultra Matte lipsticks are still a favorite, but they can be extremely drying. I believe they have changed the formula a bit, and they’re not as drying anymore. During my lipstick declutter, I got rid of a lot of lipsticks in this formula. The shades I no longer own are Beeper, Kapow, Lumiere 2, Are & Be and Fresh Cut. A lot of these are no longer available so I won’t be linking them. I still love Beeper. It is one of my favorite shades, but it was just so drying. I might pick it up again and see if the formula has changed.

colourpop lipsticks I decluttered

In the Colourpop Ultra Satin formula, I decluttered Chandelier, Calypso, and Barracuda. This Colourpop formula has to be my favorite. It has the pigment of the ultra matte, but it is not drying The only reason I got rid of these is that I didn’t think the shades suited me. I have gotten a bit paler now that I am living in Oregon, and so the shades that looked good on me before no longer do. Also, I am pretty sure some of these were part of trios or bundles I got.

There were other Colourpop lipsticks I decluttered in some of their other formulas. I found that their Ultra Blotted lipsticks don’t have the best longevity, meaning, the actual product doesn’t seem to be working as well as it used to. I LOVED Split, but now it looks so patchy.

Some other lipsticks I decluttered were Revlon Ultra HD Seduction and Eternite, NYX Soft Matte in Copenhagen, Huda Beauty in Bombshell, Kat Von D in Lovesick, and NYX Lingerie in Honeymoon.

In the case of the NYX Soft Matte lipstick, I found it to be extremely patchy. I picked up a dark shade, so I can’t speak about the lighter shades, but this formula did not work for me. The Huda Beauty liquid lipstick didn’t wow me. I had high expectations, but it didn’t feel that much different than my Colourpop lipsticks.

What this lipstick declutter has taught me is that I need to stay away from the Colourpop website. It is hard to know if a lipstick is going to suit me based on the image on the website. I’ve been enjoying the lipsticks I’ve gone into the store and swatched a lot more. I think it is easy to get excited about affordable prices, but it can be so wasteful. Are there any brand’s products that you have purchased just because of the price?

When was the last time you did a lipstick declutter?

  • I don’t think there has ever been a brand I obsessed over as much as I have for @lilahbeauty 😍 This is the most beautiful packaging and presentation I had ever seen. It is a pricey brand, but when you receive the box, open it, and see the little pebble, every penny is worth it. I picked up the Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true, the prettiest #mauve and I am so glad I did. I am still trying it out but there’s no doubt the formula is just as beautiful as the packaging.
•
What’s one brand you’ve been dreaming about trying for a while?
•
No creo que haya otra marca más linda que #lilahbeauty 😍 La presentación y el empaque del producto es hermoso, y hace que todo valga la pena. Esta vez compre el dúo para mejillas y labios, sirve como rubor y labial, en el tono b.true. Aún sigo ensayándolo pero no hay duda de que la fórmula del producto es igual de perfecta que el empaque.
•
Cuál es una marca que han querido probar?

  • @thrivecausemetics is killing it with these amazing releases and I am so happy to be a part of it. This is the NEW Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3. The perfect beginner palette in my opinion and the perfect palette for an everyday look. I love how it has everything you need and these are literally the shades I reach for in every palette I own. Can’t wait to start playing with it and letting y’all know my thoughts. Thank you again to #thrivecausemetics and @karissabodnar ♥️

Did you know #Thrive donates one product for every product sold? Have you tried this brand yet?
•
La nueva #paletadesombras de @thrivecausemetics está AQUÍ! Y es perfecta para el día a día. Tiene los tonos perfectos para crear una variedad de looks - estos son los tonos que uso en todas las paletas que tengo y me hace feliz tenerlos todos juntos en una paletita. Si no han escuchado de esta marca, se las recomiendo! Tiene un mensaje y una misión muy linda.
  • Are you lazy? Do you forget everything? Do you only shave exposed leg during the winter? Then you’re just like me and need to check out @sphynx - an all-in-one portable, TSA friendly razor. It comes with a spray, a shave bar, and two razors. They’re all refillable which was my main concern when I received it, but it is so effective. I am not sure if I’d find it practical for a full shave, just because it is really bulky, but if it’s the winter and you missed a spot of exposed leg, this is such a good solution! Thank you to the @yccagency for the opportunity to test it out ♥️

Les mata la pereza? Se les olvida todo? Solo se rasuran lo que queda expuesto de la pierna durante el invierno? Entonces son como yo! Tuve la oportunidad de probar #sphynx que es un todo en uno. Viene con un spray, un bálsamo para afeitarse, y dos cuchillas - todo lo que necesitan para afeitarse cuando están de afán o se les ha olvidado. Ademas lo pueden traer con ustedes en el avión ✈️. No se si lo usaría para una rasurada completa por lo que el empaque es tan grande, pero una gran opción para cuando se les olvida algo!
  • [#flowerbeautygiftedme #soldejaneirogiftedme] New products I am trying and testing - See any favorites?
-> the new @thrivecausemetics Focus Eyeshadow Palette No. 3 is quickly becoming a favorite but I’ve yet to use all the shades.
-> @flowerbeauty Blush Bomb Color Drops in Cinammon. This could be a dupe of the @glossier cloud paints. I really like this shade but I am still making up my mind
-> @soldejaneiro Açaí Body Cream. I’ve already said I really like this. I just noticed it does have a shimmer to it, which I hadn’t noticed before. I don’t mind, but wanted to mention it
-> @lilahbeauty Divine Duo Lip & Cheek in b.true. FINALLY getting to try some #lilahb - the brand with the prettiest packaging
-> @dailyconcepts Jade Roller was so kindly sent to me and I have no idea about the benefits but it feels really nice
•
Productos nuevos que he estado ensayando! Las nuevas sombras de #thrivecausemetics hasta ahora me han encantando. Se ven súper lindas y son fáciles de usar. La crema para el cuerpo de #soldejaneiro como ya les había mencionado me gusta mucho, pero me he dado cuenta que me da a la piel como un brillito entonces lo quería mencionar. Otros que todavía estoy viendo qué tal me parecen! Ven algún favorito?

  • Two new products to try from @dermae and I am so excited! One - the Anti-Wrinkle cleanser which smells amazing. I’ve used it already and so far I really like it. And the Sun Defense Oil-Free Sunscreen. I don’t think it is the type of product I’d use under makeup, but it feels really nice and doesn’t have a strong SPF scent which is usually the case. Have you tried either of these? Thank you to @dermae for gifting these to me!
•
Dos productos para ensayar de #dermae! Uno es un limpiador fácil que ayuda a prevenir arrugas. Huele súper rico y hasta ahora me ha gustado mucho. El segundo producto es un protector solar. No se qué tal se vea debajo de maquillaje, pero me gusta mucho la textura y que además no tiene un olor muy fuerte a protector. Han usado alguno de estos?
