This post is going to be different from my typical reviews, but it’s something I feel is important to discuss and bring awareness to.
I think anyone who was in the makeup scene between 2015-2017 was horribly aware of the makeup market boom and the intense push to buy buy buy and own a massive collection of makeup rivaling that of the largest beauty influencers. Or perhaps, like me, you were completely unaware of this and fell into the trap of purchasing mass quantities of makeup you could never hope to use up.
I want to use this post for a few different reasons:
- I want this to be used for awareness regarding the ease of purchasing too much makeup and what can happen when we do this and don’t use it.
- I want to feel like the products aren’t just going to waste even though they are no longer going to be able to serve me.
Everything you see listed in this post is going to be makeup that I went to review, but has gone bad and is no longer useable. This means that even though there is still plenty of product left, I did not use it during it’s shelf life and it can no longer safely be worn. It will all need to be trashed or recycled as best as I can do it.
Hopefully by seeing the amount of makeup below, you’ll consider your own collection’s size and use! This post is going to be updated as I pull makeup out of my drawer and identify it as too old to review/use. It may be months in between updates on it, and that’s what I hope for more than anything!
