First is that if I actually love the components, as a result of if I personally LOVE a product, then I’m extra apt to maintain it no matter its utility to me as a reviewer. If it’s exceptionally unhealthy throughout the board, then I don’t trouble retaining in any respect as a result of who even wants to carry onto to check afterward?
In any other case, I take a look at the model, whether or not I really feel prefer it’s common sufficient to advantage retaining for potential comparisons or having the ability to refresh my reminiscence on components afterward down the street. If it’s a restricted version product, I’m much less prone to maintain lately. I don’t have room, and I don’t return into the archives almost as a lot now as I did years in the past (as a result of my picture high quality is extra constant and has improved over time).
For foundations, if it doesn’t match me, I often declutter as a result of I can’t put on it. I attempt to maintain an assortment of common foundations/concealers available in my shade vary (or there about), after which I’ll simply declutter after they get discontinued or a model comes out with a brand new components that appears to be extra well-received. I keep away from retaining liquid and cream merchandise, whether or not highlighter, blush, or bronzer, except it’s a shade I completely love. Then, I’ll maintain it in and attempt to use it sometimes for pictures or the like. They simply don’t maintain so long as powder-based merchandise, so I attempt to go them alongside whereas they’re nonetheless good.
