As the end of semester rolled around I decided to do a big clean-up of my room including my makeup. I have decided to get rid of a lot of my old or non-cruelty free makeup products. I am still keeping some that I use regularly, but hopefully over time I will achieve my goal of 100% cruelty free. For now, these are the products I am decluttering.
L’oreal Paris Skin Perfection BB Cream 5 in 1 in Fair: I actually didn’t mind this base product although I think it did clog my pores a bit.
Bourjois Maxi Delight Bronzer in 01: this is too glittery for me.
Models Prefer Mineral Blush in Winter’s End: this is too light for me, which is saying something as I am very fair.
Bourjois Blush in 54 Frosted Rose: this is beautiful and has gone to my mum.
Revlon Satin in 025 Peacock Lustre
Revlon Matte in 010 Bone
Revlon Satin in 170 Gunmetal
Revlon Satin in 290 Cocoa
I actually quite liked these eyeshadows. They are nice and pigmented. But I have since acquired some cruelty free alternatives like my Urban Decay Naked Basics palette.
Maybelline Full N’Soft Waterproof Mascara: really liked this.
Revlon Soft Kohl in 061 Jet Black
Revlon Soft Kohl in 021 Denim Blue
NYX Butter Gloss in Peaches and Cream: this is too pink for me. I’m not sure I actually ever wore it.
Bourjois Colour Boost Crayon in Peach on the Beach: again, too pink.
Models Prefer Lipstick in Budapest: this is actually a cruelty free product, but the colour is too light and I never wear it.
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
Unknown silver polish
Unknown glitter polish
Fabuluscious Intensive Growth
Essie Splash of Grenadine: this is a great bright purple verging on pink, however I have a very similar colour from a cruelty free nail polish brand.
Essie Tart Deco: I don’t find myself reaching for this very often, I think it is a bit bright for me.
So that is my first makeup declutter of non-cruelty free products that I no longer use and which will either be put in the rubbish or given away to friends and family who will use it.
Thanks so much for reading, Christina xo
