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: Primark PS… Get Lippy Metallic Lip Kit in Molten Lava


Until recently the Primark I go to hasn’t had that much of a range of the beauty products that have been seeing everywhere on blogs, so when I went in and they had some colours I liked the look of I got them. They didn’t have a huge range, I think this was one of two metallic lip kits and there were two mattes, but enough to try them out and at £3 each for a set with a lip liner and a liquid lipstick it seemed like a great deal to give them a go.

The colour I’ve got is from the Get Lippy Metallic Collection and is a sort of coppery coral kind of metallic colour called Molten Lava. The liquid lipstick and lip liner are both the same colour, I’m assuming they’re both called Molten Lava as well, and I haven’t seen any of these available separately. Unfortunately Primark don’t sell online so it’s either risk paying over the odds on eBay or a similar site or go into the stores and see what they have in stock.

Review: Primark Get Lippy Matte Lip Kit in Cookie Dough

As I am currently in the search for a good, affordable liquid lipstick this may be one of many liquid lipstick reviews coming up. There will be other reviews in the middle but I realised today how many I have bought recently and I’ve actually been excited to try them all out and write the reviews for you guys. Today’s is one of the Primark Get Lippy Matte Lip Kits, one of the ones I’ve been looking out for the most and they finally had some in stock near me.

The one I have is in the colour Cookie Dough, which is a fairly light nude, it doesn’t add any extra light or dark to my natural lip colour really, just changed the colour of it, which is nice for an everyday look to me. These lip kits contain a lip liner and a matte liquid lipstick, as with most of the Kylie style dupes, and costs £3 which makes it the cheapest one I’ve bought. I fon’t think that either of the products is available individually, though as our local doesn’t have a great range of their own beauty line I’m not sure.

With these being the cheapest I was interested to see how they’d work, they seem to have either love or hate reviews and seem to vary from colour to colour so I was crossing my fingers I got a good one.
