Lip Product Declutter

I think lip products are what I have decluttered the most consistently and yet I still have a collection like this...

Madness.

This is just round one of this whole process because I have plenty of new items to swatch for pending #LipSwatchWeek (s). I'd suggest going through your entire collection ever so often to make sure the products haven't gone bad. Unlike powder products, lipsticks and glosses do change in consistency and scent relative quickly - some quicker than others.

Sometimes yuh just gotta break up with things that you know you're not gonna use. No matter how pretty they are. The only disappointing thing above is the Nivea Lip Butter. I was so excited to pick these up in NYC cause I am yet to see these scents in Barbados. Unfortunately, this 'Cocoa Butter Kiss' scent and me ain't adding up.

Trash


Alas, the crime of not using up a product before it goes bad 😢 such a pity. Those Revlon Lip Butters actually don't smell bad but I have had them for eons. I decided to part with some of my Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar samples cause I never remember to use them. Sadly my old favourite nude lipstick, NYX Black Label 'Sand', had to be retired. I was considering repurchasing but Moden Cosmetics 'Bare Naked' has taken its spot. Of course I will keep those M.A.C Lipglasses to Back 2 M.A.C. 'Girl About Town' is a gorgeous shade; I'm sorry I didn't totally finish it. The lesson here is that I clearly need to stop purchasing lip gloss.

Sunday Riley Good Genes versus Drunk Elephant T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.
