Continuing with my make up decluttering or make up graveyard, I'd like to review my cream cheek products pile. I think it makes sense to go through things that tend to expire first, and items I do not use regularly enough - lipglosses, I'm thinking of you. Again, this post will be on the ones I'm parting with. If you have your eyes on any of them, just let me know, I can let you have them; mind you, they can be quite old though.

I do not wear bronzer. I buy them because a malfunction in my brain thinks I will use them as shading. In reality not many bronzers can sculpt me naturally or in a flattering way. What prompted me to de-clutter my bronzer/contour stash is, the series of makeup graveyard/ decluttering by various beauty youtubers including iamgrape1119 (Tao), Tati, pinksofoxy (Christine). Also, I wanted to see if there's any close alternative to the Charlotte Tilbury I'm digging a lot since I received it. And guess what? I found a pretty nice alternative in terms of opacity, texture and depth.
In this post I'm only going to talk about the ones I'm going to part with - giving them away or blog selling, leave a comment below if you fancy any - for the ones I'm keeping, that will be another post.

If you're not new to my blog, chances are, you've already read a swap or two between me and Sam from UK. She no longer keeps a blog or twitter but we still connect via facebook and instagram. From time to time we like to send each other packages of goodies because we ourselves want to be treated as well. Here I show the latest gorgeous package Sam put together for me. Thank you, my adopted sister~
First of all, there's a little tub of Emma Hardie Moringa Cleansing Balm. I have used it just several times mainly for the scent and to test it out so I haven't formed a proper opinion as of yet. First impression is, although it doesn't smell as good as I imagined (too much raves on youtube perhaps?), it really smells beautiful. The packaging really has its flaws with oils leaking into the lid and in between the layers of the pot. Under our weather, always 30 Celcius +, it is a melted thick oil in the pot. I guess perhaps it will be more user-friendly in a tube with squeezing or pumping mechanism?
