What's In My Stash? Part 1: Make-Up Collection

This post is going to be a cumulative count of my make-up collection. I plan on having more parts to this series (including skincare, perfume, hair care, etc.) so if you have any ideas, please leave them in a comment below! In my last post, "If I Finish This, I Will Purchase That...", I mentioned that I wanted to clear some products out of my collection that I wasn't particularly thrilled with. I feel like I have too many items in my collection and would like to significantly reduce it's size.

My next post will be an update on what my IDEAL make-up collection size is. It's going to take me quite some time to use up these products.

How many items are in your make-up collection?


  1. hey girl thanks for dropping by...yep i love Urban Decay....

  2. You have so many things. Love Urban decay. Great post.


  3. so much amazing high end stuff! I own way too much makeup too, I have a whole set of drawers full of it and only ever use the same small selection of products over and over. I definitely plan on decluttering eventually too, I went through a stage of wanting to own loads of makeup but over time I've realised how wasteful that is as so much of it has hardly been touched. In future I'm only going to have enough products to fit into an acrylic storage container on my dressing table as thats all I realistically reach for! Cant wait to see your perfume collection :)

    1. I used to work in cosmetics so a lot of the items I have were given to me as "gratis". Even still, I have spent a small fortune on this stuff so I definitely want to start using it all. Less than 2 years ago I did a major de-stash but I think I might need to do a second one. There's a lot of items that I'm just not thrilled with and why have 7 meh products if I only ever use the 2 I really enjoy?

  4. Wow great collection!!!
    Have a good week!!! my g+ for you!!!:)))

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  5. You have quite the collection! And the Sephora clear lip liner works really well! I really like it and I use it a lot with red lipstick. I find the lipstick stays a lot longer with the liner. And the price is good which is the cheapest clear liner available at Sephora. Hope that helps! :)

    xo T.

    1. Thanks for the review! It might be a good replacement for all my lip liners eventually.

  6. (: xoxo, Rebecca.
    * Fammi sapere cosa ne pensi del mio nuovo post:

  7. Wow! This gives me an idea for my blog before I start my project no buy.
