Musing: on the difficulty of discarding makeup that I don't love

I am having extreme difficulty discarding makeup no matter how useless it is.

I have many products that I can make work with a little effort.  But I have products that I absolutely love, and the mediocre products just take time away from the ones I love.  Considering the volume of makeup that I have, I could get rid of the mediocre products and still have plenty of variety to enjoy in my stash.

However, for the life of me, I can't seem to let go of the products that are just ok.  I'll try just putting the subpar products into a box and see if I can just let go of the box some day.

Hi kuri,

I totally have that problem too, which is why I pass on what I don't reach for to family friends now (after sanitizing them, of course). Many of the items I've passed on thus far have only been swatched for my blog and/or brand spanking new, because I just couldn't get around to photograph and review them, or that moment just passed and that was that.

Wait, are you in Tokyo?!?

Hi D,

Sadly not in Tokyo :(
Sometimes still have access to cosmetics though :D But all of this is here is accumulated over time...
Unfortunately my family and friends mostly aren't interested in makeup, you know? One friend did take my blush though, yay!
