post #361 of 1140
I ditched an old mascara last night and finally used the last of my Neutrogena eye cream that I thought would never die. I also gave away my Garnier eye cream to a relative.

Alright, you guys have convinced me haha. I only started wearing mascara the end the beginning of Janurary so i'm going to throw away the one I have now. It was a deluxe size anyway, and I have 4 more waiting for me to try!


So I guess I'll say I used up:

Origins Full Story Lush Lash deluxe mascara

I just discovered this thread. I cleaned out and reorganized my makeup and skincare items a couple of nights ago and discovered that I have way too much stuff. My goal is to reduce what I have by about 40%. I am committing to only buying what I need to replace :-)
