Why I think a beauty blogger should do a monthly empties post: Part 1

If you are a beauty blogger like me, or just a beauty product addict like me, I’m sure you have a stash of products put aside in your closet. You have a lot of products that need to be used up or you have bought something just because you liked it or ‘just got bored after one use’. Yes, it’s the confessions of a beauty addict I would say. 

I have been through that stage and I can’t say I do not love shopping. No sane woman would. But how
much is too much? Or does the term ‘too much’ exist in your dictionary at all? There was a time when I was a student. I did save up my pocket money, I gave tuition lessons, did small jobs for pocket money and it’s no brainer that I used most of it on cosmetics. My excuse was that I wanted to showcase it on my space knowing all the time it was a good lie.  
 Well, I do not regret it. But the fact remains, not only did I spend a chunk of the money I could save, but products started piling up. I started hating to go back to lipsticks that I had bought say 4 years ago (do not jump up. I know you are guilty of that too) and at the same time craved to get what was newly launched. About a year ago, we had our apartment painted and only then did I realize how much I had accumulated. Then I went on a cleaning session.  Not many products had expired back then, but I was just tired of seeing them every day while the truth was, I had hardly used it for once.

    1. Hahah! I agree on that. I would keep everthing stored in a bag and at the end of the month, throw them away.
      More reason of doing this -- keeping the house clean :P

  4. Totally relate to what u said.. I make it a point to finish the existing product before buying a substitute or backup.. And that's the reason y I still can't boast of a jaw dropping collection :/
    A much needed post indeed!!!
