Makeup Inventory (Beauty, Skincare, Haircare)

Hi everyone :) Here are my inventory numbers for my makeup, brushes, skincare & haircare items. My numbers have changed a lot over a year because I've been de-cluttering and also using up items in project pans. My focus was to test out products & if I really liked them I would keep them in my collection. If I didn’t like an item I de-cluttered it by throwing it out (if it was too old/ not sanitizable), or I'd pass sanitized items along to friends/family/local charity.

I've learned so much about myself through this journey and I'm continuing to work through my collection, enjoy my products and get rid of any items that I don't enjoy.  

You may notice that my 12/30/14 column doesn't contain numbers for most eye shadow categories. In my YouTube video, I shared my 1/24/15 numbers for those items. I'm not sure what happened there :/ I know a few times throughout the year I reorganized categories and melded some together/ broke some into new headings. This made it easier for me to understand my collection better & to look at/understand certain buying habits. 

Are you doing an inventory? Please let me know in the comments!


  1. Hi Kristen, I thought to come over to say "Hi" ... do like your videos a lot and am grateful that you share your numbers. I am still learning but I want to come to a point where makeup is only appreciated not hyped or horded anymore. Have a blessed day xoxo Candy

  2. Kristen, you are not alone my friend! I think if I do an inventory, my numbers would be much higher than yours in most categories! It's the life of a makeup and beauty lover I suppose. Good to do this inventory though because it does make you think about making a purchase. I am going to school starting in February and won't be working, so I will be on a serious NO BUY unless it is for an essential like deoderant or make up remover wipes. But the bigger items are a definite no-no until I graduate! Thanks for sharing, I love watching your videos. -)

  3. Doing an inventory is next on my list of things to do. I'm scared.... Lol! I will keep you posted. Thanks Kristen!
