    We have become disgusting , over indulged , selfish , and conceited . Wow I woke up to this and thought wow I have a new box of crap here waiting to be unboxed and put away , I could never use the amount of makeup I have or still buying . I’m really grossed out . I don’t want to be this way watching her I was like why? How much does one person need it a sickness . It’s so sad , wow . I could have bought someone a sandwich , how wasteful and selfish . Gross on so many levels , do we really need everything we see and if it’s a damn Shade off we have to an it even though we still will always pick the same things . We lie and say we will use it and we never will . Wow I can’t believe what I have become . I need to also stop watching because watching makes me by shit I don’t need while other get rich off of my stupidity . I hope I can stop this insanity . Wow what a wake up call .Yes makeup is fun and we should enjoy it not become this .

    I feel the same way about the dior highlighter. Because I love the formula though, I’ve tried finding ways to make it work. If I blend and really work it into my skin, the pink disappears.

  • Sara Li
    Sara Li Month ago +84

    One thing I learned from Jessica Braun’s no-nonsense declutter is to start by taking all the products you use on a daily basis that makes you happy - instead of going through all the products and evaluating them separately and seeing if they look different enough from the rest you to keep them. After that take what you want to use/test and toss (donate) everything that you didn’t take in the first or second round

    • Jessica Lowe
      Jessica Lowe 3 days ago +1

      I agree. Jessica isn’t about what brand is lux or what brand she spent the most money on ... it’s just which product she uses the most ... this video frustrates me... she just swatches and justify that she will keep all because she doesn’t have the colour of the blushes etc ... all I see is her keeping all the lux brands and can’t let go and throw away the cheaper alternatives... might as well just say it as is.

    Its the first long declutter I watched and it was very interesting I feel because of how you articulated your thought process . I really enjoyed it and I think it will help me to choose new makeup and maybe to get rid of a few items in my huge collection. You also make me want to order a lot of Glossier makeup 🤔

    • Serein Wu
      Serein Wu  Month ago

      Thanks for watching the entire video! Yes, try out a few of the Glossier makeup, i love them! There's a whole video review of almost everything from Glossier on my channel, I have to update on the Glossier play products still.

  • Ann C

    I think you have weeks and weeks of possible shop-my-stash videos just focusing on 3 key elements from your collection: 1. eyeliners + 2. Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Sticks + 3. Charly Tilly-Tilb eyeshadows. Whoopsy, I mean Charlotte Tilbury. David Razzano does a great RUclip video on the Sephora channel combining LM Cobblestone with Charlotte Tilbury's Uptown Girl eye quad. Of course I bought them both after watching! Good for blue eyes. Anyway, all to say I felt a big energy burst towards the end of your magnico video when you got to your eyeliner + eye shadow sticks collection.

      Omg yes! I once pulled out my Tom Ford lipstick and it smelled so bad (it had gone bad) luckily because I had it for only a year they replaced it without any questions, but I hate when I forget about my makeup and it’s gone bad or can’t be given to a friend or family member.

    There are quite a few new eyeshadow palette launches in clean beauty! To name a few: Āether beauty all 3 palettes are so fun, clove + hallow sunrise palette, well people nude palettes. And then a few oldies: Ere Perez's chamomile palettes are all pretty. I guess you are probably not going to purchase anything since you are on low buy no buy but maybe down the road you want to do a clean beauty eyeshadow palette round up. For me eyeshadow palettes and lipsticks are the hardest to declutter lol they are all my babies - I can always find some sort of reasons to keep them

      Thank you so much for the clean eyeshadow palettes info, I will be on the hunt for them when I'm done with my low buy. Clearly I have plenty of eyeshadows to get me through till then. I saw the Aether beauty ones, but couldn't decide which I'd want more and also felt it was very shimmery, but I'll have to swatch them next time I see them again. I totally feel ya on the palettes, it's so hard to let them go and I can totally justify keeping them too. Thanks for watching and for the recommendations!

    I am DEFF saving this to watch simply because I really really need to do this. I have been avoiding it, but I know things have gone bad and there are things that I literally could not scrape anymore if I tried. I have such a love for both my makeup and my beauty/skin health products..but it is time for a SERIOUS declutter, especially of my empties (that I have a habit of saving IF I loved the product because I don’t want to make a list and lose it lol..but come on now, I can obviously make one on my tablet or something! Buuuut I don’t want to do it just yet, so saving to watch for later once I am inspired and ready to go! (Way too late at night to start it now lol)
