Collections: Purple Lipstick

In connection with the whole Use It or Lose It program, and seeing as it is a new year, I figured I would start taking a good look at my makeup collection. I might actually find things that can be rehomed, which is awesome. I might find dupes. I might find things that have gone off. I figure purple is as good a place to start as any.

There is no real order to these swatches. I just waited for a day with decent light, and slapped them on there. I definitely found a few that I love, and need to throw into heavier rotation...and a few that I really don't know if I need them.

I see a couple of dupes already, and I am going to put those to the side for a few months to see if their absence bothers me at all. I am a bit of an actual hoarder at heart, so I rarely toss things immediately. I tend to put them out-of-sight for a few months, then toss them.

Is this an interesting sort of post? Maybe once I am finished with the entire rainbow, I'll post my toss/swap list up on the fb page. I recently swapped a bunch of stuff on r/makeupexchange and that went really well. Let me know in the comments if you want to see more posts like this.
