THE BEAUTY DIET // Collection Cull and Share

Early in June I started The Beauty Diet. You can read my post for all information and, of course, my rules but I'm basically trying to work through the multitude of products in my collection by allowing myself to purchase a product for every two things I finish up. For every five products that I either throw away prematurely or I give away, I'm also allowed to buy one item. I decided to start off by giving my make up a bit of an on overhaul, culling products that no longer work and making a little pile of things that are good enough to be shared with family and friends. 

I'm not going to talk through every product because there's quite a bit but if I've reviewed anything I'll let you know! 

These first two photos contain products that I am throwing out. There's a of a few favourites in the mix (the Essence Stay All Day Long Lasting Eyeshadows which have unfortunately dried out - I am honestly so sad to see them all go), a few disappointments (Jordana's Best Lash Extreme Mascara, I'm looking at you) and a few products that just need to go.

I am also giving a lot of products away, including a few Bellapierre Mineral Foundations* in shades that don't fit me. There's also a selection of eyeliners and lip liners in shades that I never use, a couple of eysehadow palettes that I feel like others will appreciate far more than I will and a few highlighting and bronzing products that just dont suit my complexion! Family and friends, please enjoy.

Finally, the products in the cull photo above are a little more recent. I went through my lip product collection to find many products that need to go. One to note is the 1 Skin Solution Lip Butters* which I'd really like to keep, however all four have started growing some nasties so I thought it was time to say goodbye. I really like this product so I'm sure it'll be one that I repurchase! 

37 cull products + 26 share products (nope, I didn't even plan that) = 63 products
I am allowed to buy 12 products and I'm two cull or share products off a 13th product

What do you think of my Collection Cull and Share? Have I been too ruthless? How often do you clean out your make up collection?

*This product was sent to me, however all opinions are my own. I was not paid for this review


  1. You've done really well at clearing out your stash! Good way to see what products you really like and use though. Such a shame about the Essence Stay All day shadows, did they discontinue them?

  2. I've recently done a couple of culls! It's somewhat liberating to toss out products that have just been taking up precious space :)
