It All Has To Go!

EDIT: Thank you everyone for the interest shown and support. I just wanted to answer a few questions before I get everything set up.

1. I'll be setting up a PayPal account pretty soon, and will probably only accept it through there since its the most secure. Like I said, this will be done in the next week, so I will make a new entry with all the items and info later.

2. No, my blog isn't shutting down. I am also not stopping doing makeup tutorials and posts.... its just that I haven't had the time to make videos and edit them, so I don't want y'all to think I'm giving up on it all, I will get back to into when other things settle down. I don't want to say something's coming soon, because honestly I don't have much planned besides making it through my current semester. But I'll see what I can do about talking about other things, I just don't think y'all would be really interested in my life, besides the makeup aspect lol...

3. So far I've pulled 30 items, not including what's in my eyeshadow palettes. I'm probably going to put two or three of the 15 pan palettes (not including shadows), I just need to decide what colors I want to keep.

Hello everyone!

I don't have any pics to put up because honestly I haven't been doing much as far as makeup goes. Just my everyday thing, which can get boring if I were to do an entry on it everyday. I've just been so busy with school and work that I don't have time for much else... well yeah, time for hanging out but that's a part of life. Anyways, I'm giving y'all a heads up.

I'm selling a majority of my makeup.

Yes that's right, it has to GO!!!! I've had this epiphany that I think many makeup bloggers get, especially those in college when money is tight, that I really don't need 15 shades of green. Or that I don't need 10 different paint pots when they are just going to waste in my collection.

So over the next week I will be getting together all the items I am selling and take pics and whatnot. A lot of them haven't been used more than 5 times... so yeah. If you are interested, start saving up because I will post them during Spring Break next week.

I hope everything is going good for y'all.

  10. Wow you've hit that stage huh? So have I but I haven't gotten the guts to let it all go T_T. I have managed to stop buying 170847131 of the same product..

  11. Hey Stephie, yeah today I was at my local MAC store lookin at some eye colors and all of them are so pretty but you're right, can a person really use up so many shades of the same color? I have been trying to keep my palette simple with a few shades of each different color cause I love just doing a simple gradient effect with my eyes. I have actually been wanting to try out new foundation. Right now I'm using Bare Minerals and I've been using it for almost 2 years maybe? But yeah I am thinking about checking out some MAC foundation, maybe the Mineralize Satinfinish. I'm not sure if you use or have used that or not but if you have, I would love some feedback! I hope things are going well, my life is swamped with school and my roomie is swamped with pledging for her sorority...I almost feel like I'm pledging with her haha cause I see the kind of things she has to go through. But anyway sorry for rambling, I really do hope things are great for you! =] Take care

  19. Hey Stephie!
    When I first saw the title, I thought you were going to quit blogging altogether! lol. I think it's a good epiphany that you had. A few weeks ago I had a similar epiphany and I vowed not to buy anymore makeup. Except I broke that vow and bought a few more items, but now I feel my collection is complete.
    Guess what I finally got my hands on... Tete-a-tint in the pro palette! My MAC store finally had it in stock!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow. I'm shocked. I mean good for me lol, but that's sad I loved watching your tutorials. :) I'd love some of your palettes or something. :)

    Take care dear
    Xoxo

  26. Stephie!! I miss your blogging, girl!! It's so unpredictable as to when you post nowaday, so I always come back often lol. :P I felt a moment of sadness when I put myself in your shoes and thinking about how I have to part w/ the makeup, lol. Can't wait to see what you're offering! ^-^ My spring break is next week too! YAY!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I know what you mean about money being tight when you're a college student. As much as I love MAC, I can't afford to buy every shade of green. Haha, I hope your MAC finds a great home! Who knows, I might even end up buying some. =D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wowwy. Yeah, I felt the need to give away and sell some items. Tis a good feeling. :D

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi stephanie.. will you consider to ship to Australia??

    ReplyDelete
  39. yeah looks like no more tuts n stuff...readers r going to be disappointed...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Good for you Steph!

    I did the same thing, actually, except I'm a packrat and can never sell my shit :P I just stopped buying makeup, and that's it. I still have more makeup than I could possibly use for the next 30 years though :P

    ReplyDelete
  41. hey I enjoyed watching your tutorials on YT and I am happy to read your blogs daily! :) keep up!!! Can't wait to see more make up tuts from you :D

    ReplyDelete
  42. i plan on only receiving payments through paypal, because its the most secure and the fastest means of payment. i have not decided if i will ship internationally, but if i do, you will have to understand that the shipping is going to be a bit more expensive since i will have to put tracking and such on it just to be safe. i haven't had time to look into all the logistics of selling but now i do :)

    oh and no i'm not pregnant. that's weird that apparently selling excessive makeup = pregnant... REAL logical.

    ReplyDelete
  43. ^hey stephie, i'd love to get some of your stuff if you do sell internationally. and i'm totally ok with no tracking. :) i got some piggie samples from Nessa before thru USPS Priority which is cheap yet no tracking. i can't wait for you to open your sale!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm excited for your stuff! Post!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm french & I love your blog!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  53. I got so addicted to your blog! I'm new to eyeshadows and I think you and I are similar in skintone so it helps a lot! I have friends that go to UTA (I'm from Dallas) and I go to UT-san antonio.. there are no girls here that wear any bright eyeshadows! Anyway this is random but I just wanted to leave a comment and I'm looking forward to what you have on sale!

    ReplyDelete
  54. You might as well end this blog.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I think people assumed the pregnant thing b/c usually pregnant moms try to clear out space by getting rid of their makeup to make room for the baby.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I THINK YOU SHOULD POSTTTT BY NOW IT'S BEEN SOOO LONG. :/ I MEAN I get that your BuSsSsy but it doesnt take long to just throw a post out ONCE a week even if it means no pictures or w.e...

    ps. sorry for the caps & if i was being harsh BUT im sure every one else gets really annoyed coming to your blog EVERY day and not seeing anything new, not even if how you are doing or w.e. the blog doesnt have to be ALL makeup either bc you seem bored with it.. post about your life or w.e... .oh and you should send internationally bc it seems like you have a lot of ppl who would buy but from other countries.

    ReplyDelete
  57. hey steph, any idea when you'll be posting your items on your blog? x

    ReplyDelete
  58. I haven't seen what u're selling yet, but I can hardly wait to see.
