By the end of this blog post you will be thinking to yourself.. 'I need to do this/That is me' After such an amazing response to my "Buy less and wear more" post (which by the way If I am honest I am struggling with - Not the buying part, I havent bought anymore lipsticks.. just the wearing part! Must nip that in the bud asap!) Anways... When I was having a sort out of my makeup and general beauty products, I realised I had accumilated so many samples! Whether they be mini versions of products to try out or the usual sachet style sample.. I have a fair few!
So it got me thinking.. why am I hoarding these and not doing what they are actually produced for... trying out something new!? So in my quest (?) to reduce my beauty collection down I figured (just like my lipstick obsession) that if I made it public that I hoard these things, then it would get me to start using them. (Its worked in regards to the lipsticks... I havent bought any since writting the post!) As I cant buy these samples it will indeed make me use them. I can keep track via my blog and let you guys know my thoughts on the samples when I've finished them. Sort of like an empties post, but I wouldnt class it as 'empties' as they are only tiny! I realise there will be some things where I can literally just tell you that they smell nice/sinks in fast or other comments along those lines but who knows.. that may be helpful to someone!
Do you collect beauty samples but never use them? Do you want to join me on this little project of mine? If you do let me know via twitter or in the comments!
