My First Declutter of 2019!

The First Declutter of 2019 title image. Behind the text is a photo of all the products I decluttered spread out on a chair

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: Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Smudge Out Mascara

I have so many mascaras in my stash I’m slowly working my way through trying them and seeing which I prefer so the next on the list is the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream Smudge Out Mascara. I will admit that the thing that caught my eye with this is the packaging. I love how cute the Tony Moly products are and the Panda shaped mascara wand on this one just stood out to me. I’ve also found that their makeup works really well for me. The Smudge Out name on this mascara did surprise me, most English speaking countries would choose anti-smudge or something like that, but it basically means it won’t smudge, or shouldn’t anyway.

I found this mascara on the TK Maxx website a while ago, though I haven’t seen it since, and I can’t remember how much I spent on it but I want to say around the £5 mark. I think the best place to find it if you’re in the UK is eBay at the moment.

I’ve finished my degree! Woo! This past week has been a bit of a blur of working so I didn’t really post as much as I’d want to because my brain couldn’t take any more time looking at the screen after working on the project. This post was originally going to be done on Friday, so tomorrow it’s going to be the post that was meant for today, hopefully anyway.

Most of this order arrived a while ago, I posted about the one album in my August favourites post and I’d had it about a week then so that shows you when they arrived. I made the order from KPopTown.com at the beginning of August, the first part with the two albums and the two beauty bits arrived three weeks later which seems like a reasonable time to me from South Korea to the UK. They sent me an email about the earrings not being in stock and then when they were dispatched and there was no extra postage, they took another three weeks to arrive and everything was very well packaged so as far as how good they are as a store I would definitely recommend them.
