What Part of Your Beauty Collection is the Most Out of Control?

Question of the Week: What part of your beauty collection needs purged the most?

Oh goodness! This is an easy one because I just happen to be in the process of trying to organize and streamline it. My lipstick collection! Well I’ll be honest. I started the process and then it came to a very swift halt. I pulled out all of my lipsticks and sorted them my colour. Nudes, pinks, reds, berries, fun/bold, vampy, etc. Pulling them out and sorting them is about as far as it got. I started swatching the nudes on white paper and writing out the names in the hopes of eliminating similar shades. But they are all just a little bit different. Special in their own way. LOL The problem is lipsticks don’t have the life span of powder products. There is no reason I could possibly ever need hundreds of lipsticks. And yes, I have hundreds. This should give you an idea…

I mean I can’t possibly try them all on and decide on favorites can I? How do you go about culling your beauty collection? Are you a softie like me, or are you a hardcore and ruthless declutterer?
