Hi to all my lovely readers and followers. Now, on January 13th I made a complete list of everything I had in my collection and counted it all, and I was totally shocked at the amount of things I had. Especially the eye shadows I had 480!! I mean who in their right mind would need all of those.
So, I pledged that I would really try to clear out all make up that I thought was past its use by date, things I didn't use/never used would get disposed of in some way. Now I know that I have a long way to go because the shopaholic in me wont allow me never to buy make up again but I want to really reduce my collection down so that it is more manageable and I can really appreciate the products that I have.
Right then, I will list the products how I did in January and then how I am doing now. Lets see the real truth.
JANUARY FEBRUARY DIFFERENCE
Nail Polish - 195 192 -3 Yay! A small difference but still a difference
Facial Moisturisers -16 12 -4 Look's Like Im doing well so far

Eye Primers 18 18 0 Oh well, at least I haven't purchased any
Concealers 17 17 0 Hmmm, not doing so well
Mascaras 38 39 +1 Not good, really don't want any more

Highlighters 5 9 +4 Can anyone see a pattern?
Lip Products 87 84 -3 Pleased with that.
Eye shadows 480 566 +86 !!!!! What the hell!!! I have a serious problem
Eye liners 18 26 +8 That's bad.
Face Cleansers 10 11 +1 Need to stop with these.

Well, as you can see I have done well in some areas, nail polish, face moisturisers, perfume, bronzers, foundations, lip products and Face powders I didn't purchase any more so really pleased with that. But my downfall is seriously eye shadows, eye liners and body lotions. I am really going to try and work hard at trying to reduce these down. I don't know what my problem is with them, I guess they are just the products I love to buy the most of.
Lets hope that March is a better month.
I hope you enjoyed this post and let me know if you are doing anything like this with your collection too.
Love and hugs
