    • It’s no problem, thank you for stopping by! I definitely agree with you, it’s a shame they hiked their prices up. But at least there are still affordable brands out there xx

  1. I was the same with nail polish! Used to collect and be obssessed with BarryM ones…haven’t bought one in ages!

  2. Loved this post!! I also watch Jessica’s videos. I’m with you, I used to own all the naked palettes and now I just own the 3rd one and the mini basics one. those were like collectables for me for the longest time. I also got over liquid lipsticks because i personally found them rather drying. I still wear mac lipsticks but I agree, there are tons of other brands to choose from. Also I used to be OBSESSED with Lush. But the bath bombs ruined my tub! I love this post idea. I did one of everyday stuff (50 things i don’t buy) but I’d love to do a makeup version.


    • Thank you so much! I recently found her channel and I love it. I’m so glad it wasn’t just me that used to collect the Naked palettes, only keeping a few is a good idea. Yeah, I hate how drying some of them are. I still wear the MAC lipsticks I own, I just don’t buy any new ones at the speed I used to haha! Totally agree with you! It seemed like no matter how hard I scrubbed the tub some of the staining just wouldn’t come out. Oooh I’ll check it out, thank you for letting me know xx

  3. I love nail polish but it’s true I tend to keep wearing my same favourites on repeat and I haven’t bought any new ones in a while either! The last ones I bought was last year when I was buying some for my sister she wanted for Christmas and I decided to get myself some too, haha! 🙂 Such an interesting post!

    Hope that you had a lovely weekend 🙂

  4. This was such an interesting post! I used to be obsessed with nail varnish and buy it all the time but then I suddenly decided I didn’t need hundreds of them and got rid of loads and only buy a new one if I think I’m going to get lots of use out of it. Lush is somewhere I always wanted to buy from but couldn’t justify the price and now that it’s gone up even more I definitely won’t be shopping there much, haha

    • I am so glad you think so, thank you! So glad it wasn’t just me who used to collect it, as I did exactly the same as you. Yeah the price increase is such a shame, as it was expensive before and now it’s just ridiculous xx

  5. Love this post! So interesting to see what you no longer buy and I can relate to a few of them too! I do still love Lush but only tend to buy from them at Christmas now. The prices are a bit ridiculous and paying £5 for a bath bomb that will be gone in minutes feels like a waste! I used to buy from them quite often but I just can’t justify it anymore xx

  6. I love this post idea! I also no longer buy lush or any of the Naked range. I normally get gifted lush which I don’t mind but I never go into the shop anymore, I’d much rather support a local or smaller shop. As for the Naked range, I just feel like they’re so basic and theres so many other things I could spend my money on!

    • I am so glad you like it! So glad it isn’t just me who doesn’t buy those anymore. They have some really lovely gift sets. With you on that one. There’s so much choice now isn’t there?xx

    • I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed it, thank you! It really is, it’s funny how tastes change over time. Me too, they’re more of a Christmas treat now, rather than a regular occurrence xx

  7. Such a great idea for a post! I can’t remember the last time I bought a Naked palette either – I love and use the ones I already own, but the new one’s don’t seem to be anything special! I have to admit that I still buy Lush from time to time, but more of their skincare range rather than the classic bath bombs! x

    • Thank you, I am glad to hear you think so. Me too, but the newer ones just don’t hit the mark how they used too. There’s too much competition nowadays. Oooh I need to look into their skincare, I used to love their masks xx

  8. I definitely feel the same way about liquid lipsticks! I don’t gravitate towards them anymore. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  9. Thanks for sharing, I have stopped buying lipsticks years ago when I did not wear them any more, I think prices of products go up as the ingredients that they are made from go up, I’m also prepared to pay extra for cruelty free products 🙂

  10. This was such an interesting post! The only liquid lipsticks I wear are the NYX soft matte lip creams but to be honest I wouldn’t really consider them as liquid lipsticks since the formula is so creamy. I definitely gravitate more towards lipsticks! I don’t really paint my nails anymore so it’s been ages since I’ve bought any new nail polishes. Such a fab post x

  11. This was a great post and I found it really interesting. I don’t really buy from Lush either anymore! x


  12. I’ve been pretty strict with myself when it came to most beauty/skincare products. I spent a lot of 2018-2019 buying so much product, that I don’t know what to do with myself. This year has been less of a year of buying those products, and more of a year of using them up! I’m quite proud with all the skincare products I’ve used up. I’ve also hit pan on lots of shadows this year. Great post Han xx

  13. Hi Hannah, the only thing I still buy is nail polish but I don´t use it as much anymore either. With the urban decay palette I totally feel you! I only have the third, but it was a total waste. Even though I like the colors I actually don´t find the quality that good and on the rare occasions when I put on eyeshadow I like other ones more and only use the urban decay one because I feel like I should haha 🙂
    Have a great start in the new week,

  14. Relatable! I used to be such a collector of the Naked palettes, I used to own only the Naked original and Naked 2 until eind of 2016, then I picked up Naked 3 and Naked Smoky at the airport at a discount, I couldn’t resist. From then on I started collecting, so Naked Heat and Naked Cherry were going to be mine. I was put off by the Naked reloaded packaging and layout and also the shades to be fair, so I kind of broke the chain, but considering it didn’t match the other packaging (which I still don’t understand to this day, why did they make it cushioned fabric?) I didn’t see it as part of the “range”. Then Naked Honey came along and obviously that looked amazing and I had to buy it, but now with Naked Ultraviolet I have the same vibe, where it’s just not something I’ll wear, ever. I’ve become a lot more particular with the palettes I buy too so I’m glad to have broken the chain and it also made me declutter Naked 1 – 3, finally!

    Also totally get you on the face palettes, I don’t often buy them but when I do, I just never reach for them!
