My Palette Purchases of 2018 – Part 2.

Did you think I was done? If you read the first part of this series (you can read HERE), you will know that I did a “round-up” of my eyeshadow palette purchases from Sephora during 2018 and provided my thoughts on each palette, let you know how much use I truly got out of each one, which have been decluttered, etc. One day when I unexpectedly had the morning off from work (thanks horrible, cold, rainy weather), I went through all of my Ulta emails and decided I’d do a second part dedicated to my Ulta eyeshadow palette purchases.

Duping the Melt Blueprint Stack – Shopping My Stash!

One of the things I told myself I would do in 2019 is shop my stash more and take a backseat to palette buying. As you might be able to tell from this blog and my Instagram page, I haven’t been doing that good of a job so far.

My Palette Purchases of 2018.

I thought this would be a fun post to look back on and reflect on what eyeshadow products I bought last year, whether I still have them, how I feel about them, etc. I decided to do this with only Sephora purchases as I was able to go far back and see what I had picked up. Are you ready to dive in with me?! Hope so!

I am actually quite surprised that I didn’t buy too many palettes the first 7 months of the year… wait a minute. Actually, I’m not surprised. I know that I tend to stay away from Sephora the first few months of the year because I spend my holidays buying tons of makeup. Thankfully, that did not happen this year, but I remember doing that years prior. Either way, I wanted to make this post to show myself just how much I buy and hopefully talk myself out of buying so many unnecessary eyeshadow palettes because I don’t need them all.

Makeup Declutter: Eyeshadow Palettes and Face Products.

I hadn’t cleared out my makeup in quite a while, so after purchasing some new releases this weekend I felt it was time to part with some things I no longer used. I’m not one who likes to keep things I don’t use, particularly because it takes up space for new makeup to fit into and because I don’t like for it to waste away knowing I won’t be using it since it’ll be sat in my makeup drawers untouched.
