Makeup De-clutter/Collection - Purple Lipsticks

Okay, so one of my goals for November was to organize and de-clutter, and if you haven't already guessed I am a ridiculous hoarder, especially of makeup. It's always on my to-do list to go through it all and get rid of things, but it's a really daunting task. I also really enjoy snooping and seeing what others have in their collection so I thought I'd do a de-clutter/makeup collection post series so I can actually get rid of things and also show you my collection, if you're interested. I started with purple-berry lipsticks because they are my favorite, but also the smallest part of my lipstick collection so hopefully the easiest. Keep reading if you want to see what I kept and what didn't make the cut!

These two were super similar so I couldn't justify keeping both. I ended up getting rid of the Milani Violet lipstick on the left because I didn't love the formula

I'm not a huge gloss person but these 3 are so pigmented and beautiful. The Black Radiance in Plum and the NYX Butter Gloss in Devil's Food Cake were super similar so I ended up keeping the NYX one as they are some of my favorite glosses.

The NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk and the Milani in Sangria were very, very similar shades. Again I decided to part ways with the Milani lipstick. I'm not as big of a fan of the formula as I thought I was when compared with other lipsticks.

I love these 3 colors, especially the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Transylvania I did decide to give up the Milani gloss in the middle because it's super sticky and I'm not a huge fan of sticky lip glosses.

I am a really, really big fan of bright purples, they are so fun, vibrant, and make a big statement. I ended up keeping all but the Maybelline Color Elixir, it was really similar to the NYX Butter Gloss in Raspberry Tart.

I love all these beautiful berry pink colors so I kept them all. The formula on the Revlon Kate in shade 29 is one of my favorites.

These two Makeup Revolution lipsticks are some of my favorites, especially the true purple on the right called Make It Right. I have nothing else in my collection like it.

I ended up keeping all four of the shades above. Although the e.l.f. lipstick is in the Shade Beautiful Berry, it really leans towards nude, so I moved it out of my purples/berries, but I love it all the same.

All in all I got rid of six lippies and all my purples now fit in one lipstick holder so I'm definitely happy with my progress.
