Beauty Anti-Haul

I've always loved shopping. I like the process of looking through a store to find the perfect thing. And then I love taking it home and using it. So when I discovered haul videos on Youtube, I loved them. It was so exciting to see people show all these new things they've bought. 
But I've found that it's easy to get caught up in the "haul" mindset. Buying lots of stuff may be fun, but it's not a very sustainable habit. A few months ago, my makeup box was overflowing and I realized that I wasn't using the majority of my makeup. So I realized it was time for a clear out. These are the things I've decided to part with. 

Real Techniques Foundation and Concealer Brushes: I always found myself reaching for my beauty blender to put on my foundation and concealer, and so I decided I don't really need these brushes.

L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Foundation: This foundation was fine, but I was never excited about wearing it. And it was hard to blend sometimes. 
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation: This was a really hard one for me to part with, because this is an expensive foundation, and because of that I really wanted to love it. But every time I wore it, it would go on patchy and cakey. So after several months, it's time to say goodbye. 

Fresh Chapsticks in Rose and Fig: I really love these chapsticks, but not these colors. Rose is too red for a neutral lip, and not red enough for a red lip. And Fig is dark and sparkly, and I don't like that combination.
Too Faced Melted Matte Lipsticks: Maybe it's because I have dry lips, but these really don't work on my lips. After a few hours, my lips would be dry and flakey. I love the colors, and the colors stay on a long time. But they just dry out my lips too much.
