Collection Overview February 2019 (Project Progress)

No purchases this month. It was in fact very easy as this month. I think because I’m using my best stuff, I am not falling prey to FOMO.

There is less of a dent in the figures due to a couple of hand me downs from my mother. Specifically two Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peels, which are worth £34.50 each.

So let’s see my collection totals!

There’s been a little movement this month and it’s all been in the right direction!

  • I finally used up a brow product! I knew it was nearly done so I made an effort to get rid of the Auburn pencil I had and that means I have success in the brow department.
  • My eyeshadow palettes have reduced by 1 and £24 in value because I destashed a palette I found I really didn’t like due to the PAW challenge.
  • Eyeshadow singles have decreased due to another destash, this time it’s the NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Milk. I used to use it as a base and I now use concealer as it creases less. It was also way over its expiry date.
  • Highlighter is another destash. It was a rose gold mousse product. Just too dark for my skin, so it had to go.
  • The numbers are throwing me with liquid lipstick because I destashed two items but only seem to have gone down by one? At least the value has dropped £15!
  • I’m glad to be rid of one more mascara. I currently have two in use and can’t wait to move onto some of my more recent purchases here.

That’s a total drop of 6 items and a decrease in value of £74.49

Any progress I might have made on this section has definitely been killed off this month by my mother giving me a couple of face masks. It’s also why while there has been no movement in the number of items in the face masks, there is a lowering of the value.

That’s a total drop of 3 items and a decrease in the value of £47.49

So despite getting a couple of items given to me, there’s still a nice drop in the number and value of my items. 9 in total and £121.98 in value. I expect a smaller drop next month because I don’t see me destashing anything but you never know!

How have you been doing with your collection? Has it grown or shrunk?
