If it is an eyeshadow or lipstick shade that i don’t like i first try to mix it with other colors to see if it comes up with any color i like if that doesn’t work out then i give it away to someone who i know would like that shade or eventually throw it away.

I move it from my makeup drawer to a container in the closet where I usually forget about it and then when I eventually clean out my closet I throw all the makeup away 🙂

I try to figure out something I can do with it. The blue eyeshadow that didn’t work for me I sometimes use as an eyeliner. Any lipglosses I don’t like I layer them with other things until I find a color that works for me.

I give it all away. I had way too much stuff at one point and all the liquids were disposed of. The ones that could be sanitized were given to mum/aunts/cousins and I make it a point to keep my stash to a minimum. The only thing I stock up on are LE products.

I’ve been trying to give my stuff away, too, lol. I think I’ve only gotten a back up of one thing, which I ended up swapping away!

I usually keep it with me to use on my girls. halloween is a good time to use the generic stuff.
My youngest daughter has dressup parties once a month, and I will use that with some of my pigments to do their faces.

If its an item that I kept the receipt for I will return it. I have a special receipt box that I keep all my MAC receipts in. When I went MAC exclusive I got rid of three plastic bins of make-up, I took it all to the local womens shelfter thrift shop as donations. I wouldn’t buy used make-up but I am certainly not going to pass judgement on someone who would. If someone less fortune than me can use it and needs it, I am all for “reduce, recyle, reuse” instead of filling up the landfills 🙂

Very good idea, Tanya. I’ve only returned a few items from time to time. I also love the idea of donating to the local women’s shelter 🙂

Well, I get my mother’s makeup she doesn’t use… The makeup that I don’t use, I give to my best friends… One of my friends doesn’t buy makeup anymore because I give her so much!
