    Default Your jars, bottles, tubes and cosmetics

    What does that drawer/cabinet/box look like? I used to love seeing all the creams, tubes and lots of makeup that I collected. I've changed and paired down. I'll keep 10 eyeshadows and ten lipsticks. There's something about the chaos factor for me having so many products, so I tossed most of them. Feels good. I made a pact that if I buy something new, something gets thrown away.

    I just cleaned out my extra make up. I had some things that I never used, and I'm trying to get rid of things I don't need (all throughout my life, I've been trying to do it with clothing as well). My teenage cousins are thrilled with all the crap i keep giving to them.

    I keep the makeup I use every day in a metal MAC case, sort of like a big fishing tackle box, and then I have a drawer with the things that are for other seasons...like darker bronzer and powder for when I'm tan...

    I use Trish McEvoy planner pages for my eyeshadows and blush...this way, I pop out the makeup from it's original cases and place on the planner page. Most of the other brands have metal so they stick in the planner pages.

    I have a couple of cases that are lipsticks and eyeshdaows that don't get used everyday; I definitely need to pitch some of it but then I'll want to wear it one day and I won't have it... I have at least 10 different shades of red lipstick... why?

    Witchcurl has THE tacklebox!

    Now don't think I've gone crazy. Black shoes and red lipsticks never die and never get thrown out. I think my Chanel red lipstick is 15 years old. It's nice and sticky.

    You're right it does. Coco Red, can't beat it.

    Oh, this also goes for shampoos and conditioners. I have two shampoos and two conditioners. Amazing when you clear out the shower caddy.

    You'll only catch botulism from it

    I throw my old make-up out every once in a while.
    I wear so little make-up now, compared to 20 or even
    15 years ago. What care products I have are lined up
    meticulously. I'm a neato nazi as far as my make-up
    and other toiletries are concerned.

    I keep a big fishing tackle box under the sink that is filled with most of my "crap." The items I use every single day are in a cute basket near my sink.

    Because you look really good in it-that's why!

    I can't wear it-my natural lip color is already pink/peach & it looks like blackberry juice 2 hours later. Damn!

    Oh no-this one I do constantly. I can hardly wait-I try every new one out & stockpile replacements.

    Not to mention "old lipstick smell"-like old oil. Yuk. I smell my older ones first & junk 'em if I detect an odor. If its going under my nose,its got to be fresh smelling!

    I dare not tell you how much makeup, creams, potions, shampoos, etc etc I have gathering dust. This is m wakeup call to chuck them out. I can be ruthless when required....

    True.

    When I moved back in February I forced myself to toss all the half full bottles of lotion and really stick to just using one or two body lotions... stop accumulating crap at the store and I think I'm doing good when it comes to that but I have a weakness; a serious weakness when it comes to eyeshadow and lipstick... I CAN'T HELP MYSELF!!!!!!!
