How many times have you found yourself checking half finished products lying in your makeup kitty? For most women, even before they finish using a product completely, the urge to buy a new one takes form with the old product being pushed right behind the new ones. Here are a few ways to make sure that you do not waste your old products, reports Times of India.
Finish before buying new products
One of the best ways to ensure that you do not waste your old products is by using them until they are completely empty. For example, if you have a moisturiser left, squeeze it until there is nothing left in it anymore. Often when you do not finish a product, it keeps lying in your makeup kitty and with time it expires.
Stop yourself from impulse purchases
The only reason why your old products finds its way behind the new ones is because more often than not, women tend to buy beauty products simply on an impulse. If you already have a shade of red lipstick, wait for it to get over and then get another one of the same shade, rather than accumulating six lipsticks of the same colour scheme.
Try out samples before you buy
Trying out product samples before making a final purchase can prevent you from getting a skin rash or any other kind of skin inflammation. Further, you may also realise that you do not want to use the product because either the colour is not what you want or it doesn’t go well with your skin complexion. Sampling the product will help you from recklessly purchasing it.
Go for small-sized products
You are bound to pick the larger size when it comes to buying beauty products. Though you cannot pick a small size for every product, like a lipstick, mascara or a lip liner, there are other items that are available in small sizes. For example, if you want to buy an eye shadow, instead of picking an entire palette, try a palette of one or two shades that will be easier for you to finish.
Check your stock always
Before you begin buying a new product, always check whether you have something similar in your kitty.
Opt for all-in-one items
For those who love to stock on various types of cosmetics and beauty essentials, it is always safe to choose all-in-one products that are not only easy on your budget but will also go on for a long time.
