Makeup Declutter Tag: Questions and Answers
Hey y'all and welcome to today's video! I'm really excited to be doing this makeup declutter tag. I have a list of questions here and we're just going to talk about makeup. This video tag was created by Eva Twos, and I also saw it from Angeliconiqvist and Annette's Makeup Corner. We're going to talk about makeup declutter and discuss makeup we don't like and should get rid of. So, let's jump into it!
Impractical Makeup Item: Pressed Glitters
A makeup item that I find impractical is pressed glitters, especially when they are included in eyeshadow palettes. I don't understand why companies put pressed glitters in palettes instead of shadows. Most pressed glitters in palettes are not created equally. For example, I absolutely hate the pressed glitters from BH Cosmetics. They are not safe for the eyes and the quality is terrible. However, there are other brands like Jolie Beauty whose pressed glitters are relatively better. Personally, I prefer using glitter gels or gel pots to add glitter onto my eye looks. They allow me to have more control over the placement and staying power of the glitter. Overall, I believe pressed glitters in palettes are impractical and I wish they would go away.
Pros: Adds a touch of glam to eye looks, some brands have better quality pressed glitters
Cons: Not safe for the eyes, lack of control over glitter placement
Expired Mascara: Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara
I don't usually keep expired mascaras as I prioritize maintaining the quality of my eye products. However, there is one mascara that I still have despite it being expired. It is the Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Waterproof Mascara. I personally don't prefer waterproof mascaras, but I keep this one around just in case I need it for a specific occasion like going to the beach. I have no recollection of when I purchased it, making it slightly concerning to still have it in my collection. While I should probably dispose of it due to its expiry, I can't help but think that keeping it gives me a sense of security.
Unused Red Lipstick: Melt Miss Argentina Lipstick
One item in my collection that falls under the category of a red lipstick I never wear is the Melt Miss Argentina Lipstick. I absolutely love this red lipstick - from its beautiful packaging adorned with the sandworm motif to its formula and stunning color. However, I rarely use it. It has become more of a collectible item that I display in my room rather than a lipstick that I actually wear. While I know the formula is probably still amazing, I can't bring myself to use it up because I enjoy just looking at it. It's a personal preference to keep it as a collector's piece rather than actually applying it.
High-end Product Not Worth the Money: Refi Skin Finish Water Based Powder
In terms of high-end products that I find not worth the money, the Refi Skin Finish Water Based Powder immediately comes to mind. This powder turned out to be a huge disappointment, especially considering its high price tag. On YouTube, there is often discussions around the lack of diversity in product reviews. When you try to provide a different opinion or review, people are quick to question your credibility and accuse you of using the product wrongly. In this case, the Refi powder did not work for me regardless of how I tried to apply it. It lifted my makeup and left my skin looking cakey and dry. While it gained a lot of attention on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, it did not live up to the hype for me personally. It serves as a reminder that not every product works for everyone, and personal preferences and different skin types play a significant role in determining a product's efficacy.
Cons: Cakey and dry finish, does not blend well
Drugstore Dud: Wet N Wild Hula Honey Disney Stitch Palette
A drugstore dud that I encountered in my collection is the Wet N Wild Hula Honey Disney Stitch Palette. This palette turned out to be a disappointment in terms of performance. The eyeshadows were patchy, difficult to blend, and grabbed weirdly on the skin. Despite my various attempts to make it work, it required a lot of extra effort and specific techniques to achieve a decent eye look. I don't want to have to baby a product to make it work, and the Wet N Wild Hula Honey palette sadly fell into the category of a dud for me. While it is not completely unusable, it did not meet my expectations and there are better options available in the drugstore.
Pros: Affordable, cute packaging
Cons: Patchy application, difficult to blend
Foundation with the Wrong Shade Match: Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation
Finding the perfect shade match for my skin tone is a constant struggle, especially when it comes to Charlotte Tilbury foundations. I have tried both the warm and neutral undertones in the Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation, but neither seem to match my warm olive undertone. It is challenging to find the right undertone balance, causing the foundation to either pull too warm or too cool on my skin. This issue is specific to Charlotte Tilbury foundations, as I have encountered difficulty with the undertones in their range. Despite enjoying the formula and wear of their foundations, the undertone issue makes it challenging to find my perfect match.
Pros: Good formula, long-lasting
Cons: Limited shade range, difficulty finding the right undertone
Product Not Worth the Hype: Makeup Revolution Bright Light Highlighter
One product that did not live up to the hype for me is the Makeup Revolution Bright Light Highlighter. Many people online claimed it to be an amazing highlighter. However, when I tried it, I was disappointed with the results. The product did not blend into the skin and sat on top, looking sticky and unnatural. While I understand that makeup is not necessarily meant to look "natural," I prefer products that seamlessly blend into the skin rather than appear as a layer sitting on top. The Makeup Revolution Bright Light Highlighter did not meet my expectations and fell short in terms of performance.
Pros: Affordable price
Cons: Does not blend well, sticky finish
Unusable Concealer: Natasha Denona Transfix Matte Concealer
The Natasha Denona Transfix Matte Concealer is a product that I simply could not make work for me. This concealer, despite its thin consistency, clung to areas that I did not want it to. It did not provide the coverage I desired and had a dry and dusty appearance on the skin. While I expected it to give a matte, skin-like finish, it fell short and looked unflattering. It was difficult to work with and did not meet my expectations in terms of coverage and appearance.
Cons: Clings to dry patches, minimal coverage
Starting from Scratch: Mascara
If I had to start one makeup category from scratch, it would be mascara. Mascara is a product that has a relatively short lifespan and needs to be replaced frequently. If someone were to take away my existing mascara collection, I wouldn't be too upset as I can easily repurchase my favorite mascaras. I frequently use products like Melt Super Natural Lash and One Size Beauty Mascara, which I can order online. While starting from scratch with mascara would require repurchasing, it is a category where I have a good understanding of which products work well for me and can readily replace them.
In conclusion, makeup decluttering can be a challenging process, especially when encountering products that don't meet our expectations or preferences. From impractical pressed glitters to expired mascaras and shades that don't match our undertones, every makeup lover can relate to the struggle of finding products that truly work for them. Despite the occasional disappointment, we continue to search for those holy grail items that make us feel confident and beautiful. Remember, personal preference and individual experiences play a significant role in determining which products are worth keeping in our collections. So let go of what doesn't work and hold onto the products that make you shine.
