I’ll give Marie Kondo a run for her money once my book comes out titled The Life-Changing Magic of Using The Candy Crush Technique in Letting Go of Lipsticks.
The Candy Crush Technique is when you group lipsticks by color
and hope that they explode and choose JUST ONE lipstick from each group.
My red lipstick destashing project is on-going, and so far, I’ve found 2 pairs of lipsticks that have the same-ish color.
I am at a point where all my makeup sparks joy. But I am in the process of moving to a much smaller space, which means, I have to find a more restrictive de-stashing criterion. I’m considering the nitpicking method, where I would literally nitpick over negligible details to determine which stuff I’d let go of.
Here’s an example of what I’m dealing with–four lipsticks of the same color (a muted neutral brown pink, or is it pink brown?).
Do they spark joy? Most definitely, YES. I guess that’s why I have more than one of them. But I obviously should keep just one, right? Or two–a matte and a satin.
It’s 4:50 AM as I’m writing this. I’m actually in the middle of getting some work done for my day job, but I attended Project Vanity’s 8th Anniversary Blog Workshop yesterday afternoon and my brain is full of thoughts I need to let out.
I’ve already mentioned this in one of my brow pencil reviews: I don’t get why brown is considered the lighter shade of black when it comes to brow products. Shouldn’t it be gray?
But I do get why many people don’t use gray. It can make some people’s brows look like they’re tattooed on. But on my dense, fat, and really black brow hairs, gray is perfect.
I find it a chore to write about hauls, which I prefer just calling ‘new purchases’. But recently I bought products that are so good it would be a disservice to beauty blogosphere if I didn’t share them…stat.
This has got to be my favorite Happy Skin release yet. Everything in this collection suits my light/medium yellow-olive skin tone.
