Cleaning my makeup stash!

It is starting to feel like Spring and Spring means Spring Cleaning. I cleaned out my closet (its crazy how many old things that you never wear are hiding deep in your closet) and now its time to spring clean my makeup stash. I haven't done this in a while so it was important for me to take a look in my stash to see what products I should keep or throw away because makeup needs and preferences change, skintone shades vary and products just get old. I was surprised to see how many items I selected to get rid of.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in Medium/Deep: I bought this a few years ago because I love the one that comes in the same packaging but clear tube. I believe this shade did not match me well so I stopped using it. I'm getting rid of it as its OLD.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Concealer: I purchased during TBS sales and this is in their darkest shade which is actually very light. It is a stick concealer and the consistency is dry, definitely do not use this for your undereyes. I used this to help conceal my acne marks since it contained Tea Tree I thought it was beneficial to my skin as well. I'm not a fan of stick concealers but it did help me conceal my acne scars.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara: I reviewed this mascara a few months ago and I pretty much hated it due to the mascara brush which is unfortunate as I am a fan of Rimmel mascaras. Full review here.

L.A Girl HD Pro Concealer in Medium Beige and Almond: I purchased this for $2.50 on CherryCulture.com. These concealers are GOAT! They are full coverage and there is a full range of shades available. I used to use the medium one to conceal but it was my wrong undertone so it left my undereye area looking gray. The Almond shade was just too dark. I have heard this concealer being compared to MAC Prolongwear concealer as a dupe. 

NYX HD Concealer in Green: I tried using this concealer to color correct my undereyes and a little goes a long way with this concealer.

e.l.f Eyelid Primer: Cheap but there are a ton of better primers out there and I do not really reach for this one anymore. 

L'Oreal True Match Powder in N5 True Beige: I was gifted this a LONG time ago and I haven't really used this. Its definitely old and has to be thrown out.

e.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder: I liked the blush but they a little too much on the shimmery side especially the bronzer. I cant see anyone using it as a contour powder. I prefer my blushes on the matte side so I have not been reaching for this anymore.
