Makeup Declutter — Throw Aways

Ah, finally!

After so long, I finally did it! I went through my vanity to get rid of some makeup. Mind you it isn’t a lot and I’m still left with a bunch of stuff. BUT, I went through and decided to get rid of anything that I no longer reach for. I think in about six months I will go through my vanity again to get rid of more stuff. 🙂

What prompted me to go through my vanity was my project pan. I had put some stuff in there to use up and I realized I just wasn’t reaching for those things as much as I should be, so I decided it was time to declutter.

Here’s what I’m getting rid of:


I’m glad to be tossing a bunch of lipsticks because a few I’ve had for a while and some I just did not like at all (from subscriptions). But let me walk you through what I’m throwing away.

Note: Products in project pan will be marked with an asterisk (*).

Eye Pencils & Eyeliners:


I did accidentally throw a lip liner in here lol

  • Kleancolor Vibe-rant Duo Eyeliner in Orange Vibe, Purple Vibe, Blue Vibe, Yellow Vibe, Green Vibe and Pink Vibe
  • e.l.f. Eyeliner & Shadow in Pearl/Glow
  • IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil in Universal Taupe
  • * Sephora Crayon Contour Eye Pencil
  • * Laura Geller Eye Dew Cream Shadow Crayon in Copper Crayon
  • OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Pencil
  • e.l.f. Lipliner & Blending Brush in Wine

The colored ones have dried up and they sucked anyway. Some of the eyeliners weren’t as creamy and they tug on the skin so I didn’t want to bother with them anymore.



  • Glamour Dolls Double Trouble Eyeshadow Duo in New Dress
  • * Ipsy x NYX 3 Color Shadow Palette
  • * POP Beauty Bright Up Your Life Eyeshadow Trio in Sugar Plum


I’m getting rid of these because I don’t use them AT ALL. When I first started my project pan in January, I really was reaching for them but I quickly got bored and because they’re shimmers, they just got old kind of quick. The purple ones are gorgeous, but I don’t want to keep them if I’m not going to use them.



From left to right:

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Lipstick in 107
  • Urban Decay Vice Waterproof Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Amulet
  • LA Colors Lipstick in Coral Sheen
  • So Susan Cosmetics Liquid Matte Long Wear Liquid Lipstick in Raisin Flesh
  • Beauty Creations Long Wear Matte Lipgloss in Sweet Heart
  • Maybelline Super Stay 24 Color in Keep Up The Flame
  • NYX Lingerie in Cheekies
  • NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream in Sable
  • Ulta Matte Lip Cream in Allusive
  • e.l.f. Pout Perfecter in Glow
  • Avon Glazewear Lipgloss
  • e.l.f. Matte Lip Color in Wine
  • Contour Cosmetics Lipliner in Stud

A bunch of these lippies I forgot about when I got something better. Some of them didn’t work for me at all, and others just looked so bad against my skin tone. I also threw some that weren’t CF like the Maybelline and Rimmel London ones. I technically have other ones that aren’t CF in my stash, but I want to keep them because I received them in subscriptions and don’t have certain shades in my non-CF stash. I will eventually use the rest up or toss them next time I declutter..

Here are some swatches in the same order as the photo above:



I’m tossing a total of 28 products!

  • 3 eyeshadows duos & trios
  • 14 lipsticks and lip liners
  • 11 eyeliners and pencils

I’m glad I finally did this declutter, I’ve been putting it off for so long! I will try to do this more often and I’m also thinking that I want to do another project pan next year 🙂

How often do you guys declutter your vanity or your makeup?
Have an amazing Friday you guys!! ❤ xx

  1. Wow great job decluttering! I can only bring myself to get rid of three or four things at a time, the struggle is real lol
    I almost never use eyeshadow quads/singles, they just sit at the bottom of my eyeshadow box. Maybe I need to do a declutter soon…

    1. Thank you! And honestly, I think I just waited too long to declutter, which is why I ended up tossing many things, mainly lippies. I need to get rid of a few more in the next year or so lol.
      But yeah I get what you mean, I would so much rather reach for eyeshadow palettes than singles or quads.

  2. I did this a few days ago and barely got rid of anything! Ugh, it’s nice because you do get rid of some but it barely makes a dent. 😂 It looks like you did really good though!

  3. I haven’t decluttered in awhile but I’ve been wanting to since I cancelled all my boxes and I have so much useless minis now lol. Those colorful eyeliners look so pretty, what a shame they weren’t good at all!

    1. Omg fantastic reminder to cancel my Sephora subscription lol. Thanks girl I’ll have to write it down right now!
      And the eyeliners were pretty cheap so I didn’t expect miracles haha. I bet the nyx eyeliners are better

    1. You think so? Idk, maybe because it seems like nothing compared to the entire makeup collection it doesn’t seem like much to me lol. But I guess it is now that I think about it haha.
      Ugh girl, you’re not alone, it was definitely difficult for me to toss those eyeshadows especially the purple ones 😭😭 believe it or not I’m kind of a hoarder too lol

      1. Yes I do! Haha that’s probably what it is,
        Compared to everything you kept you haven’t thrown a lot but I reckon I’d chuck way less than that 😂 aw but I bet now you don’t even miss them! Haha it’s so easy to hoard isn’t it!?

  4. Great post! This reminds me I need to throw away some of my makeup and skincare products. I hardly ever declutter… maybe once a year. I definitely need to do it more often! I just have a bunch of stuff sitting there, that I don’t even use.

    1. I hadn’t done it in a while but it felt really good to clear up some space and finally get rid of things I no longer use 🙂 I found it very therapeutic somehow hahaha
      I hope you’re able to do it as well 😊
