I meant to take these photos ages ago, because I finally organized everything back in March, but alas, time is precious and I wasn’t able to find a chunk of time until this afternoon!  This post contains photos and brief descriptions of my non-MAC beauty products.

Just an aside–I just sifted through and donated 52 pounds of beauty products to friends, family, and my local battered women’s shelter (none of which is pictured here).  I definitely urge you to give to your local shelters whenever you have new or unused personal care products!

Check out all of the photos…

Top two bins: products I am/will be testing; bottom left bin:  perfumes/fragrances; bottom right bin:  LUSH products

Top left bin:  Lancome & Clinique products; bottom left bin:  Dior products; right bin:  high & low end glosses

Top left bin:  Chanel products; bottom left bin:  super high-end brands (Guerlain, Givenchy, Cle de Peau, etc.); right bin:  high-end brands (Smashbox, UD, NARS, etc.)

  3. jesstooimpress

    how is it that you afford all this! Where ever you work I need to get a job there!

    =O Lucky girl!! I wish I could play with all that, too!! Just wondering, do you purchase every product or is some of that given to you?

    • Hey Chloe! I purchase a lot of things, but there’s definitely enough that was given to me, too. These days, I do receive more than purchase (at least, compared to six months ago or so!).

    Man… wishing I was a battered woman near your local women’s battered shelter just so I could get some of your goodies…just kidding :)
    Seriously though, I also give away stuff to friends and family when I start to notice my 2 jumbo comsetic luggages no longer close…and before you know it, the vicious cycle begins all over again. *sigh*

    • lol, Kharina! I’m like… running out of people to give products to! A lot of times I just test something once or twice, and it takes a LOT for me to add something to my staples (like for skincare).

    I think that is a great idea to donate products to a women’s shelter – I’m gonna check if the ones in my city take donations. Now I know what to do with all those gifts with purchase colours I never use!
