Product Empties

In the growing culture of hauls and hoarding everything and anything in your life. It is very hard to stop yourself from finishing something completely, without getting tempted and buying the 'next best' thing.
I myself am struggling very hard to finish up most of the things (makeup in particular) I have, without buying any more of it. If I finish something, only then can I buy it. Sounds simple right? But it is not.

Which is why, I'm starting a series of minimalism on my blog, and trying to apply it in all of the aspects of my life. It's really hard especially when all you see on instagram and youtube, is people buying this beautiful highlighter and that go to eyeshadow palette. It's very tempting indeed but, I repeat you do not need TEN different highlighters and you definitely do not need 5 neutral eyeshadow palettes either. Especially when one palette does the job perfectly. (I'm saying all this more to remind myself than to inform you all about it)

So well here is my journey, onto minimalism.

These are the products I have currently used up since I started my journey! I'm going to let you know about each product and if I would buy it again.


1. BENEFIT THEY'RE REAL MASCARA


I really, really like this mascara, it has a great comb-y kind of wand that you can use to brush your lashes up. It is very rare that I buy something and I don't like it because I only buy something after reading reviews and if any of my friends have it, I will use theirs and try to see if a product is for me or not. I do not have anything bad to say about this. 

I WOULD buy it again.


2. MUFE SMOKY STRETCH MASCARA



Woah, I know I finished two mascaras at the same time! Which was a total bummer as not only I was mascara less but I had finished two really pricey mascaras at the same time. Which is not good for my wallet. 

I WOULD buy it again. 


3. BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO


This is probably my tenth bottle of dry shampoo. I honestly HATE washing my hair as it is so freaking long, so I try to prolong it as much as I can. But I like to look human too, so this is my knight in shining armour, it saves the day every single time. There is no way of actually going wrong with this product. 

I WOULD buy it again.


4. CLARINS FIX MAKEUP


To the old me "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?". This is literally rose water in a fancy packaging, you don't even get that much product in here and I'm sure this was really expensive, I have blocked the exact price out of my mind to feel less guilty, but every single time I look at this, I cry. I could have at least bought 2 mac fix+ with that money! Unlike this setting spray, I really love the mac fix+!

I WOULD NOT buy it again.

I know I do not have many empties but I'm pacing myself, slow and steadily easing myself into the minimalist lifestyle. I am not even close to being a minimalist at this moment, I have a very long journey to go! But hopefully I will come out the other side in triumph.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING, HAVE A GREAT DAY!

With Love,
Samia
