Updates! I’ve been on a semi-active journey to stop accumulating and start using up all the makeup I’ve acquired throughout the years. I’m really happy that I’ve sort of matured (or so I’d like to think!) in terms of my consumerist tendencies and am more selective on new purchases nowadays. I curate my makeup stash the way most social media influencers curate their ‘gram. Since I know what I want in terms of quality, consistency, longevity, I’m a more discerning consumer. No more impulse buys. I mostly think long and hard (sometimes months!) before a purchase.
For those thinking, “But you get a lot of free makeup!”. Yes, I still do get PR makeup items (though not as many as before since I’ve been transforming into a no person na) but I still have a beauty wishlist which includes many brands not available here in the Philippines! Tom Ford, for one, has always been there. Pat McGrath, Burberry, Charlotte Tillbury, Ellis Faas, Ilia Beauty, Kat Von D, Tarte, It Beauty Cosmetics and many small, “indie” brands I want to explore.
However, because of the amount of makeup I still own (which isn’t a lot compared to the other beauty addicts who have rooms full of makeup), the feeling of guilt comes knocking when I feel like buying a new product, even if it’s not a particularly expensive buy. Guys, this is it… I finally learned mindful consumption. Hanggang window shopping a.k.a ‘add-everything-to-cart-and-exit’ na lang ako guys!
So since there is no way I can physically use up all the makeup, I’ve given away quite a few to my sisters and my friends. I’ve decided to also sell most of those I don’t use often anymore soon on my Carousell Shop Page as soon as I can. Do follow me there if you want to be updated on my listings!

She’s even more OC than me.
Wearing the makeup! Love Modern Mercury highlighter talaga. Look at it (on my cheeks).
Makeup I Vow to Use Up This Year
So we’ve come to this. A list I want to publish and revisit next year to make sure I’m following the road to my good intentions. Exagge naman yata yung emptying all these ‘cos hello, how in the world do you use up a tub of Guerlain Meteorites?! Ikikiskis ko ba sa mukha ko isa-isa yung balls? So to be more realistic, I included my super hit-pan Burberry Nude Radiance for comparison. Something close to that is the goal! These are not the only items, guys. I’ll be creating new entries from time to time to update this list pa.
Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. I picked this because I don’t usually wear long-wearing foundations daily so this is reserved for special occasions meaning it’ll be hard to finish up. I want to try this with serums to make it less thick and heavy.
Guerlain Meteorites. Have no idea how to finish this up so it’s pretty pointless for me to add it here but still, I just want to remember to use this as a finishing powder. Maybe I can de-pot some of these balls to send out to readers who are interested to see the magical effect of these balls! Comment down below if you want to try. I might just send you! WOOT! Sharing the Meteorites love!
Estee Lauder Modern Mercury highlighter. I am out of my Burberry Nude Radiance. My MAC Whisper of Gilt is cracked. This is one of my favorite highlighters which I am tempted to keep in my vanity safe and sound and not ever want to finish up because sayang. BUT! I need to use makeup up so I’m including this! If you missed the Estee x Victoria Beckham collection (where this is from), you might just have the chance to get this since they’re restocking soon!
Guerlain Coque d’Or eyeshadow palette. I
need to must incorporate olive green in my usual ‘all brown’ eyeshadow game. I haven’t been experimenting lately. Need to step up… and finish up a Guerlain eyeshadow palette. I’ve abused my Les Bois de Rose one so it’s time to do damage to another one.
NARS Velvet Matte lip pencil. I’ve given away some of these to my sisters and a friend because I wanted to share the lovely formula – such a beauty, I swear. I still have 7 left with me and I want to finish up (or at least try to) 4 lip pencils.
Chanel blush. I just need to finish up a blush. Any blush. I pick this cream one because it has shorter shelf span than powder blush. Also, the last time I finished up a blush – ang tagal na. My first ever NARS Orgasm blush pa. It’s about time!
Tom Ford Golden Mink eyeshadow palette. I’ve actually been using this a lot since I love this as an everyday neutral which you can amp up for a more defined look. However, it really does contain a lot of product – bravo, Tom Ford. At least I get all my money’s worth! But yeah, including this in my list because I love it and see myself using it often.
Do you have any makeup items you’ve recently finished? What are they? Do you have any makeup you wish to use up too? How do you go about makeup product which you don’t use often? Do you sell them online too? Share away, friends!
