Makeup Inventory: Random

I decided to show you guys my random products today. The items that are just in my collection that I don’t have a ton of. I intend of getting rid of this category completely. If it is something that I don’t really use or enjoy, I just want to use it up and get rid of it. I still have to show you all of my eye stuff, but I’ll save the best for last.

Samples: 21

samples

If I can use up all of these samples, I’ll be happy. I’ll also be happy with half of them left, too. I don’t like having too many samples open at a time, so I end up using makeup samples one at a time. I don’t have much to say about samples I haven’t used yet.

Concealers: 2

I would like to only have 1 open at a time, but I have two. I would like to use up the NARS and then focus on using up the one in my pallet. It is the skin colored one next to the bronzer on the second row on the right. It is a highlight, but it is more suitable for a concealer for me. I’m happy having two but I would like to only have one open at a time and one back up. I don’t use concealer everyday, so this will be a challenge to use up one by Jan.

Color Correctors: 4

concealer

I have the four on the top row: purple, green, peach, and orange. Purple is my most used along with the peach which I tend to add a little orange to. The peach/orange is great for covering up undereye darkness. The purple is great to lighten up shadows on your face. I’d like to hit pan on the purple one by January. I really want the Urban Decay Fluid Correctors and I will replace these with those once I use these ones up.

Brow: 1

This is my only brow product. My brows are already thick, so I don’t see the point in using brow products. I’ll use it up, but I doubt I’d ever buy a brow product in the near future. I want to finish this by January.

My eye shadow, liner, and mascara post is going to be big. I have a lot of eye products for a girl who only does her eye makeup on the weekends. Subscription boxes contributed to most of this category coming up. Stay tuned!

Makeup Inventory: Intro

I have decided to do a makeup inventory twice a year: one in January and one mid way through the year around June/July/August. This will help to keep my beauty spending in check and help me see how my makeup is being collected and used up. I have already inventoried my nail polish, lotion, perfume, and skin care backups in Youtube videos and on my blog here. Next year, I’m going to do it in this style where I just do photos and break everything down by categories. In January, I will be inventorying my perfume collection including samples, body products including lotion, sprays, and body gels, nail polish, skin care backups in storage (not currently being used), hair products, and everything makeup.

I will be breaking down my makeup collection by type: lip products, blushes, highlighters, bronzers, face powders, eye shadows, and the like. Some categories are really small so I will combine them with another. This is my complete makeup collection. I don’t keep makeup in my purse. I keep makeup in a small Ipsy bag and I put that into any bag I have. It’s products that I use at my desk at work and such. I emptied that bag and included the items. Like I said, this is going to be my complete collection.

I don’t have a huge collection of makeup, but I really hope to build it up to include other items that I want. I basically only buy makeup three times a year: tax season, my birthday, and Christmas. I usually spend around $50 to $100 every time on makeup exclusively. I don’t like having a huge collection. I really feel like what I have right now is manageable and I’m looking to use them up to replace them with some new goodies.
