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?

  • New #dermae goodies! And #texturetuesday if you swipe left ⬅️ I have been loving trying out new skincare, especially moisturizers and anything hydrating. I got sent two @dermae products, both with anti-aging qualities. How do you feel about anti-aging skincare?
🍃 The Advanced Peptide and Collagen Moisturizer helps soften and smooth the appearance of wrinkles. Also, includes antioxidants to help support healthy collagen. Even if you are young and don’t have visible wrinkles, it is super important to be preventive! I haven’t used this one yet, but it felt really nice on my hand and I can’t wait to use it.
🍃Also received the Firming DMAE Eye aloft. This cream lifts, firms, and tightens the delicate eye area. It has #hyaluronicacid which infuses a surge of cooling eye moisture. I have used this a couple of times and really like the way it feels. While it isn’t super heavy, it does feel really hydrating.
Thank you so much #dermaesocial 🙏🏼

Productos nuevos para probar de @dermae! Su hidratante que ayuda a suavizar y disminuir la apariencia de arrugas. Nunca es muy temprano para empezar a prevenir. Y el segundo producto es su crema para la ojos que hidrata, afirma, y levanta la delicada área de los ojos. El #contornodeojos ya lo he usado un par de veces y me ha gustado mucho lo hidrata que hace ver las ojeras.
  • It’s a new week and I am still dealing with my cold 🤦🏻‍♀️Maybe I’ll be cured before the end of the year 🤞🏼What is one thing makeup/skincare related that you struggle with? Something you can’t make look right. For example, for me it is concealer. I have tried so many different things (still testing some), but this is the one area of my face that looks the worst at end of the day. I also feel like it’s a very important one as I want to make sure I get those under eye circles covered, but don’t want it to look cakey. Let’s help each other out! Give me your concealer tips and I’ll try to help you! 👇🏼

Una nueva semana y yo todavía con gripa 🤦🏻‍♀️A lo mejor para el fin de año ya estoy mejor 🤞🏼Cuál es un paso en su rutina de maquillaje/cuidado de la piel con la que tienen dificultades? Que no logran que se vea bien? Por ejemplo, para mi es el corrector para tapar las ojeras. Siempre me parece que es lo peor que se ve al final del día. Quiero asegurarme de que estoy tapando las ojeras pero no quiero que el area se vea pesada. Denme sus tips y ayudémonos! 👇🏼

  • Happy #Sunday! A little #throwback to the end of the summer when I had a fresh tan (that has now faded) and was playing with the @hourglasscosmetics #scatteredlight shadow in Smoke. Only used some bronzer and the #hourglass shadow to add a little something. Love how easy these were to use. I had no trouble with fallout throughout the day or longevity.
•
I hope you all had a very relaxing weekend ♥️
•
Feliz Domingo! Esto fue al final del verano cuando todavía estaba bronceadita y estrenaba la sombra de @hourglasscosmetics en el tono Smoke. Son súper fáciles de usar! Yo no tuve ningún problema durante el día, al final se veía igual que apenas la apliqué.
•
Espero todos hayan tenido un buen fin de semana ♥️
  • Happy Friday! I hope you’re on your way to a lovely, relaxing weekend. Any plans? I will be doing homework and playing with some makeup. These are all products I have been using for a while now and love. Still obsessed with the @thrivecausemetics eyeshadow palette. The quality is amazing and you really don’t need anything more. Can’t go wrong with the @marcbeauty bronzer. It has to be one of my all-time favorites. @maybelline has some of the BEST mascaras and the @beccacosmetics highlighters are the most beautiful.
•
Feliz Viernes! Espero se estén preparando para un fin de semana súper relajado. Estos son todos productos que he usado ya un tiempo y todos me encantan. Les súper recomiendo las sombras de #thrivecausemetics. La verdad que no se necesita más. Los polvos bronceadores de #marcbeauty son de los mejores que he usado.
  • #SaturdaySkinGiftedMe What’s the last skincare you tried? A little skincare, a little newness. The @farmacybeauty Green Clean is my favorite way to take off my makeup. I then use the @freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser.  their Peel Gel - and I really liked how gentle it was. My skin was not red afterwards and it is just a very satisfying feeling. I would only do this maybe once every couple of weeks but it is a nice complement to my routine.
•
NEW - the @fur_you Silk Scrub (gifted). This is a gentle exfoliant to be used 2-3 times a week on your body. It can also be used as a mask, but I see myself using it after I shave. I’ve only tried it on my hand so far and I was very impressed by how gentle it was. It didn’t feel scratchy. And I LOVE the packaging. It is so practical and hygienic.
•
Productos para la piel! Para quitarme el maquillaje uso #GreenClean de @farmacybeauty seguido por el #soyfacecleanser de #freshbeauty. Una nueva adición es el exfoliante de #furyou para el cuerpo. Ya lea contaré qué tal!

  • Sharing an #motd today! If you’re not familiar with @colourpopcosmetics, they have amazing quality eyeshadows and so many eyeshadow palettes to choose from. They also always have sales going on and just amazing quality. Other great #drugstorebeauty products include the @physiciansformula #butterbronzer and #butterhighlighter. The bronzer is so good and they released new shades this year. The @lorealmakeup lumi glotion is amazing if you like the glowy makeup look. It is a dupe for the #charlottetilbury Hollywood flawless filter.

What are your favorite drugstore makeup products?

Si no han escuchado de #colourpopcosmetics, esta marca es súper económica pero la calidad es súper buena y vale la pena. Además tienen una gran seleccion de productos. Otros productos de farmacia que son súper buenos, los polvos bronceadores de #physiciansformula.
