My name is Ling and I am guilty of buying too many beauty products!  Eeks!  I have been reading a number of beauty blogs where the blogger will post about their empties or make-up products that have “hit pan” – i.e. products they have used up.  I looked into my bulging skincare and cosmetics collection and realised that instead of having empties, I have unopened beauty goodies!  I even have an unopened mascara from when I went travelling in Seoul in September 2009.

Unopened beauty products

I’m going to show you a small portion of my collection of unopened beauty goodies.  Yes, you read correctly, it’s just a small portion.  There are loads more but let’s not go there…

More unopened beauty products

Maybelline Silk Glam By Eyestudio in Purple Drama
L’Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes in Extra Black
Missha The Style 4D Mascara (this is the one from Seoul)
L’Oreal Paris Double Extension Renewal Serum Inside Mascara
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Bloom Pure Mineral Eye Shadow & Brush Set in Emerald

More unopened beauty products

Dr Nick Lowe Hydrating Foaming Cleanser
Babor Skinovage Complex C set with Maximum Vitalizing Cream and Vitalizing Vitamin Capsules
Babor Lipid Repair Fluid

Unopened beauty products

L’Oreal Paris Elvive Colour Protect Conditioning Protect Spray
Vaseline Essential Moisture Daily Body Lotion
Philip Kingsley Preen Cream
Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand Therapy

Unopened beauty products

Victoria Jackson Lip Addiction Lip Balm Quartet
Rimmel London Royal Gloss
Nailene French Finish fake nails
Lip Smacker in Tropical Punch

Now don’t be mistaken.  Most of these beauty goodies are not unopened because I don’t like them.  In fact, I bought everything except the hand cream and the lip products which were presents from friends.  I haven’t opened them yet because I am using tons of other stuff at the moment and I’ll get round to them sooner or later.

Now that I’ve shared, it’s your turn – what unopened beauty goodies do you have?  Please leave a comment or even blog about it and link me back – I’d love to see what unopened beauty goodies you have.

    Hahaha HOARDER!!! 😉

      @Jade, I am SUCH a hoarder, Jade!! It’s awful!! I have tons of products that I am not ready to “use”…but it doesn’t stop me from wanting to buy more.

    Ling, I am so guilty of this too. My thinking is I don’t want them to go off because I am already using so many products and most only last 12mths after opening. I feel that way I can explain away the truckloads of products still in plastic shrink wrap. What do you think?

    • Ling Tung
      13/04/2011 at 7:24 pm (7 years ago)

      @Kimmi @ The Plastic Diaries, Yeah, that’s exactly how I feel Kimmi. For example, mascaras only last 3 months right? Well, I have 4 on the go at the moment, so I feel that if I open another new one, the others will go to waste… Yay, I’m glad I’m not the only one out there in this situation 😀 (and don’t get me started on the clothes I have yet to wear…)

    Omg you are so not alone in doing this! I have SO many products I still haven’t opened such as from my trip to HK in 2009 and yet I still continue to buy so much stuff each time I go haha. May I suggest having a blog sale??!! *eyes UD primer potion…* =p

    I’m so much like you too! If you do get to opening them make sure you check the expiry date! I’ve had to throw out so many items because they were expired, sigh

    That is HELL A LOT of unopened beauty stuff….and thought you just hoard paper bags but I guess Im wrong. So, what are you going to do with them?

    Wow, this made me feel better about my unopened or unused products. I have some Bobbi Brown cleanser that I only admire from afar, numerous lotions, a back up of Clinique’s Almost makeup, some eyeliners…and I better stop while I’m still feeling okay about myself 🙂

    Omg me too! I mostly hoard skin stuff, lotions, and samples. I still have some things from like.. more than 5 years ago. >< Should probably throw those out, they must have gone off by now.
