Decluttering Part One: Eyeliners

decluttereyelinersheader

I said I was going to declutter and I finally managed to collect everything together and go through it all, some had mysteriously moved to my computer drawer at some point, so I’m going to start on my decluttering posts. I will be posting links to any reviews I’ve already done so you can see better swatches and things and there are some things that I do still like but it was just their time to go.

Today the whole post is eyeliners, some of these posts will probably have a few categories in as I don’t have much of some things, and it has both pencils and liquid, though I only have the one liquid liner I’m getting rid of. I don’t wear eyeliner much apart from bonzes and golds but I seem to keep thinking that I will and so buy them anyway.

It doesn’t claim to be waterproof but says it has a built in sharpener, which has confused me a bit as it’s one of those twist one, maybe that’s what they’re meaning but it just seems a bit awkward to say built in sharpener and retractable tip for a twist one.
