Every lady can be guilty of hoarding tons and tons of beauty products, even keeping it past the unnoticeable expiration date. With the inevitable proclivity of ending up as a clutter, it might be time to declutter your collection.

Does your makeup kit really carry what’s only essential daily? If not (well, we bet not), then it’s time for you to try removing items that no longer bring you joy ala the KonMari method, which started with Marie Kondo, a Japanese pro organizer. For ladies who love to set a different mood everyday with changing lipstick shades, we found a way to declutter your makeup kit while not giving up on countless lipstick shades. And to perfectly start your commitment to a tidier lifestyle, this collection of MAC lipsticks is the best instrument to it.

There’s no need to have too much of high fashion dark hue lipsticks that almost looks similar with each other. Like how exactly is your wine red shade darker than your currant red? If you’re feeling fearless and daring, you can go for MAC’s highly essential bold shades. With high color payoff in a no-shine matte finish, try a creamy rich intense orange brown lipstick in the shade of Chili, an intense bluish-red lipstick in the shade of Russian Red, or an intense reddish-burgundy lipstick in the shade of Diva. Any of these three shades can be crucial to your evening glam.

From dark bold hues to subtle warm tones, working on with staple lipstick shades can already get you through any type of day. Whether for safety reasons or some shilly-shallying, there’s no need to keep every single lipstick shades in your beauty collection. While we are encouraged to not store products for quite a long time, we understand how it’s simply hard to dispose everything in one go or routinely.

Same goes for your casual everyday where it’s preferable to opt for softer shades. A more muted look can easily be achieved with very subtle lip shades in a no-shine matte finish such as MAC lipsticks in shades Taupe—warm-toned, muted reddish-taupe brown lipstick, Please Me—muted rosy tinted pink lipstick, or Kinda Sexy—warm-toned neutral pink-rose lipstick. And a weightless moisture-matte in matte brick red in the shade of Devoted To Chili, which gives balm-like coat on your lips.

Try asking yourself, does it give some spark of happiness? When the answer is no longer a yes, it’s time to get rid of it. Keeping it due to uncertainty is just another sign to throw it out. It’s all about organizing–putting everything in it’s well-designated space, arranging according to its uses, and avoiding hoarding at all costs.
