Everyone has them! What do you do with your unwanted make up products? have you ever spent money on beauty products wanting results but only to be disapointed when foundation doesn't sit right on your skin type or isn't your shade? or products that were gifted to you but never used.

Do you throw away those products out or give them away? if you could make money from your unwanted products, would you?? 

let me know girls and boys!!!

@rianarob If possible, I return the product to the store. I had to return the whole Too Faced Peach collection when it first came out because I purchased all the products but the fragrance gave me a horrible reaction on my face. If I am unable to return the products then I sanitize them the best I can and give them to friends, coworkers, etc. Products like lip gloss and liquid eye products just get tossed. I don't have the time or need to sell them. I've looked into donating products to a women's shelter but none around me take used or sample sized products.

I do the same thing, I'll return it if I need to but I try to avoid returning.

Where I live you can't return any beauty products even if they haven't been used which kinda sucks - but that's why I always get samples now first 😂

But I'll just give it to my sister or my friends

Yeah, I wouldn't return makeup that's been opened, it's kind of gross. Right now, all my mistakes are hanging out in my cabinet, I'll be purging soon.

When it comes to things I haven't opened yet, I give them away.

But I gotta admit I really like mixing them up and making my own products, especially lipsticks and lip balms.

When I was younger, I exchanged these cosmetics for other. Of course, I wrote why I exchange them. Now it's a waste of time and they just lie on the shelves, and when the cosmetics are very old, I throw them into the trash can.

If possible, I will return the make up.  I usually purchase them from either Ulta or Sephora, so I've never had any issues with a refund. If for some reason I miss the refund date, then it will just sit in my drawer until I eventually toss it out.

    • You are not alone, from time to time I also get these little dry patches, it is almost like eczema, I have noticed they will stick around for a few months then just disappear. I wouldn't exfoliate them though, it will irritate, I normally just apply some cream.
    • Thats a great idea, good luck to you! I use https://zen-promotion.com for likes, followers and analytics, maybe you'll find it useful.
    • Make sure to start with a good skincare routine. Cleanser, Toner, Moisturizer. I also like to use some face oil with my moisturizer which really helps me. I do this all before I prime to make sure my skin is as hydrated as possible. I recommend Rose Hip Nourishing Oil by Mario Badescu.
    • Here some Effordable Answers that works: Diagrams for eyeshadow that show what the "waterline," "crease," etc. are. Explanation of color theory/undertones Highlighting/contouring (I think just mentioning that it exists would suffice because this is probably more of an advanced thing, but it basically blew my mind when I realized this was a thing) The fact that makeup counters give samples Monistat being used as a primer (like what?!!?) Maybe a link to pictures of the different brush to show the differences between them Might be worth it to mention that cleaning brushes on the regular is a good thing (and mention of cleaning methods?) Popular websites/tutorials on youtube for further exploration (Lisa Eldridge, Beautyepic, Wayne Goss, ...etc.)
    • Makeup can both define and hide, and applied thickly enough (as in your example image), it can obscure the natural facial features and redefine its contours. I would venture to guess that an older woman would look fairly similar in the after picture, given the same makeup job. The “before” picture was shot in natural light, without obvious filters or Photoshop, while the “after” looks digitally altered and professionally lit. Older women, by the way, are often told to go light on the makeup, because heavy foundation and eyeliner can settle into wrinkles, making them appear more prominent. (Just as heavy makeup can sometimes make a young person’s acne scars look prominent.) Most of the time, women aren’t going to be walking around with heavy stage makeup and dramatic contouring, though. And there are other signals, such as the person’s figure, that balance out the aging effect of the makeup. In light makeup, shot in natural light, the model’s age would probably appear pretty much the same. There is too much going on, outside of the makeup, to evaluate these photos on equal footing.
