My First Declutter of 2019!

I’ve been working on decluttering for the past couple of months, I’ve actually been pretty good and my cupboards look so much tidier. I’ve been sorting out my makeup recently and realised how much of the stuff I was keeping is just not me at all, or at least not any more. I’ve actually counted up how many things are in this declutter post and there’s fifty three pieces of makeup or accessories that are going! I didn’t realise I had that much!

I did start this off with a little review of each of them, but when you have fifty three to get through it would be so long, so instead I’m just going to link to any that I’ve already reviewed on here and say why I’m getting rid of them. I have to say there are a few that I never thought I’d declutter but they’re so old that if I did decide to reach for them I don’t think they’d do me any good. I have a new rule; if it smells like wax crayons, get rid of it!

Onto the decluttering….

Review: Unicorn Cosmetics The Class of ’86 Eye Stationery Brush Set

I always used to think that the unicorn themed brushes were a bit of a gimmick but then I bought the heat sensitive spooky set from Unicorn Cosmetics and I was converted. I’ve had my eye on some of their sets before but as I mainly do eye looks and don’t use that many brushes for other things there would always be ones I didn’t want. Then I found the Class of ’86 Brush Set that has seven eye makeup brushes in it for different things and I had to have it.

I got this in the sale but at full price on their website it costs £24.99, which isn’t a bad price when you think of how many brushes you get. It comes out at under £4 a brush and you get a little pencil case style bag with it which is so pretty and definitely reminds me of Saved by the Bell. I’m so tempted to keep pencils in it and have it out on my desk.

Review: Real Techniques shading brush and Bold Metals pointed crease brush

realtechniques1 I posted about these I the Boots.com post on Tuesday though now I’ve had a play around with them a bit more I thought I’d do a review. I’ve wanted to try the Real Techniques brushes since I saw a video on them on the Pixiwoo youtube channel. As I mainly use eyeshadow I thought I’d try two of the eyeshadow brushes; one of the originals in the shading brush and one of the new bold metals collection with the 201 pointed crease brush.
