Bye Bye Beauty!
In 2016, I set out to use up a lot of makeup. I did pretty well with this challenge, although I feel as if I could have done better. If you're interested in seeing what I used up, please watch my latest YouTube video :-)

Empty Beauty Products for December 2016 & January 2017!
Hi Makeup Maniacs! I haven't done an empties video since November 2016, so I thought it was about time to share the things that I've used up since then. I hope you find my mini reviews helpful :-)

Time to Save Money
I recently had an epiphany and wanted to share. I have realized that in 2016 I spent way too much money trying new makeup & skincare products. Very few items are sent to me for public relations purposes. Sometimes when I am offered free items, I don't feel comfortable accepting because they're coming from companies I've never heard of, so I pass. Therefore, most of the products that I use and review are bought by none other than moi.
I realize that my obsession has taken a life of it's own and although my collection is smaller than many other women's, it is quite large for me. I could never get through all of the makeup I have, even though I wear makeup EVERY. DAY. There's just too much of it.
So, today, Makeup Maniacs, I have declared that it is time for me to save my money! In 2017, I am turning over a new leaf...I will be using makeup items from my stash and only purchasing NEEDS, not wants. For example: Do I need a new foundation when I have 13 foundations sitting on my vanity? No. Now, once all of those foundations run out, will I need ONE new foundation? Yes, one! Lol!
Despite this change, I hope you continue to enjoy my blog posts and YouTube videos. Stay tuned, as on January 23, 2017, I will be posting an "empties" video - showing items I have finished up and stating whether or not I would recommend them to others.
