✬✬✬Weekly Palette & Product Rotation✬✬✬Week 30✬✬✬

✬✬✬Product Rotation Week 30✬✬✬
I am becoming increasingly overwhelmed by my collection, especially my eyeshadow palettes. I watch YouTube videos of beauty vloggers that claim that they have a huge collection, and they do, however, I have an astronomically insane & unreasonable collection. I currently have 658 eyeshadow palettes. No, I am not lying. They are divided by the following categories: High-End, Large Palettes, Small High-End, Luxury, Affordable, & Custom. I keep a very, very detailed excel spreadsheet of what I own, what I have decluttered, and what has been used and review. My blog is mostly for me...It's not a living, it's a hobby and I enjoy it immensely. Up until yesterday, I didn't give a crap what people thought about my collection. Some items are just for me to swatch, look at, or exist in my drawer and I truly don't care that some think it's wasteful. My life, my money, hurts no one, brings me joy, end of conversation. I do donate, sell, and give away products to various people. I share what I have, so I don't feel like I am completely greedy. Realistically, there are items that I have had for over a year that I have not used yet. That is a little irritating because I obviously purchased these items for a reason. My excel spreadsheet details the order in which items were purchased, so here's what I am going to do moving forward. . . Each month, along with the items I am panning (Yes, I am a part of a panning group on Facebook and yes, I see the irony), I will choose one palette to use all month. Each month I will also choose 2 - 3 items (usually palettes) to review that don't get significant exposure or that I feel needs an authentic and real evaluation. Weekly, I will pick four palettes, one new and three older palettes to use and review the following week along with blush, highlighters, and other single products. Since the categories are listed in order of purchase it shouldn't be too difficult to figure out the order of use. Like I said, my excel spreadsheet is very detailed providing information about the date of purchase, the MSRP, if the product has been used and/or reviewed, whether the product is on probation, or being sold on Mercari or Poshmark as well as color family, etc. I have worked very hard on it and I am not quite finished. Tomorrow I am going to post information about my #lowbuy #nobuy fail and my readjustment theory. I hope you'll come back to see what I have come up with.
