As I’ve already mentioned, this post is originally from my old blog, barely organized chaos (I’ve removed the link because I’ve set the blog to private). But I’m starting all over again with this new domain, and I can’t start from February because that would drive me crazy. So.
Urban Decay singles from various Book of Shadows palettes: Perversion, Ecstasy, Misdemeanor, Midnight Cowboy, Midnight Cowboy Rides Again, Snatch.
I bought these because I couldn’t resist the loads of exclusive colors that came in these palettes. Never mind that I didn’t even know how to wear some of the colors on my skin tone. “But it’s such a good deal!,” I’d justify to myself. But is it really a good deal when you won’t use half the colors and you’ll end up throwing them away in a few years’ time? The answer, in my humble, former-makeup-hoarder opinion, is an emphatic NO.
Urban Decay singles from the Ammo palette: Last Call, Polyester Bride, Chopper.
I have another Last Call in one of the BoS palettes. I might have pulled it in my second go-round of getting rid of eyeshadows to downsize my Z palettes. It’s a pretty color, but it’s hard to work with on my skin tone. It has a tendency to make me look like I’ve been crying.
I hate Polyester Bride and I’ve used it maybe twice. The texture is extremely dry and gritty and the glitter fallout is crazy.
Chopper pulls really orange on me, and there’s a lot of fallout with this shade, as well.
Kat V D singles from various True Romance (??) palettes: Skiba, Solitude, Sinner, Cholita, Rad Purple.
From the above pictures, it would seem that I don’t like purples. This isn’t true. I like purples on me quite a lot. These particular ones, though rather unflattering on me, so I never used them.
Urban Decay matte singles: Chronic, Electric, Narcotic.
I bought these off Hautelook ages ago. I look at them now and have no clue why.
Wet n Wild Color Icon single in Kitten, Color Icon 8 pan palette in Comfort Zone, left side Definer shade.
I think I liked Kitten better in theory. It doesn’t really show up on me at all. As for the other one, when I depotted the Comfort Zone palette, a lot of them cracked and threatened to fall apart because the pans weren’t metal. This one succumbed to gravity and most of the powder fell out. It’s not a huge loss, as I have plenty of similar colors.
Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette, Sephora Mauve Yet! palette, Kat Von D Rock ‘n’ Roll palette.
Kat Von D Metal Orchestra palette: I saved two colors from this palette, because I like them. Razor Gray I gave to my mom because I have a duplicate, and Glock I put into a Z palette.
Sephora Mauve Yet! palette: I got this as a gift one year for either my birthday or Christmas. I didn’t use it a whole lot.
Kat Von D Rock n Roll palette: This was a Sephora 500 point perk. It seemed exciting when I first got it, but the eyeshadow quality was rather lacking.
LA Splash Splashproof eyeshadow sealer/base, Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, The Body Shop Big & Curvy waterproof mascara, Maybelline Fit Me powder foundation, OPI Ridge Filler.
LA Splash Splashproof eyeshadow sealer/base: This is really old and I rarely used it. It did a decent job of minimizing glitter fallout because it’s sticky.
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin: This creased on me quite a lot. It was also really frosty.
The Body Shop Big & Curvy waterproof mascara: I hated this. The formula was wet, and when it dried, my lashes felt crunchy.
Maybelline Fit Me powder foundation in 235: I’ve mentioned several times that I don’t care for this powder one way or another. It’s a bit too dark for me now, too. It’s also too pink. I recently bought a BECCA powder from Hautelook, and once that came in, this one had to go.
OPI Ridge Filler: I found this at Target on clearance and I decided to try it. It didn’t really do anything for me, and it was starting to get goopy.
Origins VitaZing SPF 15 tinted moisturizer, MUFE Aqua Eyes eyeliners in 4L and 23L.
Origins Vita-Zing SPF 15 tinted moisturizer: This was just okay. I stopped using this once I got The Body Shop’s Vitamin E BB cream.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Liners in 4L and 23L: They’re both dried out. 23L and UD’s Midnight Cowboy are nearly identical, so that wasn’t a huge loss. I’m sure I have a dupe for 4L too, and if not, I don’t wear this color too often anyway.
The Body Shop shea body butter, Bath and Body Works Villa Bergamot 3-Wick candle.
Things I actually used up!
The Body Shop Shea Body Butter: I like the texture and scent a lot. However, I’ve been wanting to try other scents, so I probably won’t go back to this one for awhile.
Bath and Body Works 3 Wick Candle in Villa Bergamot: Loved this scent and the label design. Will upcycle.
UPDATE: I found a list I wrote of the things I gave away in January as well!
MAC Mineralize eyeshadow Duo in My Dark Magic (from the Disney Venomous Villains collection) – I gave this to Krystal because she’d probably get more use out of it than I will.
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City – I think I gave this to Elizabeth?
