I think I had too much... So I let go...

Have you ever felt that you've just had too much and you simply have to let go?

That's how I felt with my blushes and I felt the need to let some of them go. I realized that I have more than what I really need when I reach for the same blushes almost every day. I have disregarded most of them so I just have to find them new mommies who will love and use them more that I do.

These are some of the blushes I had last year.

The blushes on the photo are incomplete as I have added a few more after I took this shot and my blushes reached 50. If you read my previous posts, you'll know which blushes were added on my stash. It was not later that I realized I cannot use all of these as I only have one face and I have no more than 2 cheeks. I remember one guy friend telling me to use these blushes all at the same time when we go out when he saw that photo. :P

It wasn't a short process when I downsized my blush collection to half of it. These are what's left of my blushes. 3 blushes not included on the photo as my mom borrowed 'em. Lookie!

Top Row: ELF Studio Golden Bronzer (which I also use as a highlighter), ELF Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder, Almay Cinder Red, 4U2 Magic Blush Quad, Shawill Blush 05

2nd Row: Milani Glimmer Stripes Terra Glimmer, Milani Glimmer Stripes Berry Glimmer, Benefit Coralista, Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic Blush in Afterglow, T. Le Clerc Brun Rose

3rd Row: Chanel Joues Contraste in Tea Rose, Chanel Irreelle Blush in In Love, NARS Taos, NARS Deep Throat, NARS Orgasm, NARS Lokoum

Last Row: NARS Torrid in In2It Compact, NYX Cream Blush in Glow, NYX Mosaic Blush in Paradise, MAC Mineralize Blush Grand Duo in Intenso, Rimmel Apricot, Rimmel Berry, Rimmel Sienna

I am mighty proud of myself for being able to let go of those blushes. I may have had a bit of seller's remorse when I let go of NARS Crazed and MAC BPB Joyous but then I gotta do what I gotta do. :P

Happy Sunday, everyone! :P


  1. i understand pammy.

    yeah, it is good to let go. there is nothing wrong in letting go. i am actually proud of people who does not have a problem of letting go.

    anyway, you still have the nice blush collection as i can see in the photo. you actually have more blushes kesa sa akin. haha.

  2. Jing, I guess I am no longer the blush whore. Haha! :P Yeah, I'm happy with what I did. :)

  3. Pammy, it's ok, you really can't use all of them yourself naman! So congrats to you! But in my heart, you're always the blush whore :) ehhee

  4. I find the updated collection too many pa rin hehe. Ikaw pa rin Blush Queen Pam ^_^.

  5. maglelet go ka pa pammy??uu nga theyre too many,pero they look really pretty!...sabi sakin ng isang gt sister isa lang daw face niya and a pair of cheeks kaya mahirap pag madami blush,sabi ko to put them into use powderan mo din yung butt cheeks mo..counter as cheeks pa din naman para rosy hahaha.LOL...J'adore rougit pammy

  6. congrats pammy! =) you still hold the most number of blushes in my eyes hahaha

  7. Shobe, wala pa naman muna ako ulit ile-let go. Gagawin ko kasi, kesa bili ng bili, pag meron ako gusto na bago, I'll let go na lang some of the mukaps para di na maipon or nakatambak. :P Natawa ako sa sagot mo, pati butt cheeks lagyan ng blush. Haha! :P

    Chelle, thank you. Trust me, there are girls out there who have waaaaay more blushes than I do. Haha!:P

  8. Hi Pam, you still have a lot. :) But congrats! I know letting go of those blushes is really hard esp. for you. So Congrats!

  9. hi pammy!
    kahit nag let go ka na ng ibang blushes, still *drooling* pa din ako sa current collection mo hehe


  10. Cha, I'm sure your collection is even more drool-worthy as you are a NARS and MAC addict. :P

  11. and if you are willing to let go of your chanel blushes, let me know. :)

    haaay...I've had that same's really sad when you have to let someone go. but you have to, even if it hurts, because it's for the better. :(

    Had the same feeling with my lipsticks. From 25+, i trimmed it down to around 15 or 17. I realized i can't use all of them. :(

    But at least those who bought my stuff are enjoying them.

    If you love someone, you have to set someone free. :)

  12. Martha, parang tao kung i-refer natin mga mukaps natin noh?

    Ay, yan ang hindi ko siguro magagawa. Ang i-let go sina Chanel. ;D Buy ka na, pretty yung Tweed Corail. ;) *BI mode*

  13. Haha, congrats!:) I wonder when you'll be able to use all these up!:P

  14. Soapaholic, in a decade or so? :P And by that time, they are all expired. ;D

  15. I know what you mean! That's why I have quarterly Blog Sales!!

  16. Jamilla, yeah! Better to find them new homes than just die on our make up box. :P

  17. Unloading feels good and light after. :) I always believe that we have to unload every now and then to make room for new ones. :)

  18. Caby, so true. It makes you less guilty if you buy something again. :P

  19. Haha! Akala ko kung ano na until I scrolled down.

    Anyway sis, good thing that you let most of your blushes go. I really don't think you need all those blushes. I bet their new mommies are uber happy with them.

    Lots of love,

  20. Golden, it was like serious at first and the photo. Haha! Yeah, I totally agree. :P

  21. still a great collection. i think there's nothing wrong with letting go.. just means we are slowly changing.. for the better. :)

  22. Shen, exactly how I feel. But I miss some of them though. :P

  23. so proud of you pammy! its so hard to let go nga.. si Crazed binenta mo pala ng tuloyan =0

  24. hi miss pammy,just wanted to ask what brand of blush can u recommend thats pigmented,and inexpensive?elf or nyx? f21 everbilena?

  25. Khymm, yup. Napalitan sya ni Torrid. Thanks thanks. :P

    Laneige, they're all pretty. But I was quite impressed with EB blushes and are inexpensive. Well, I've only had one and I was really impressed with it. NYX has really nice cream blushes that are pigmented but are over 300 bucks. ELF's are pretty as well especially the blushes from the Studio Line. As for F21, I can't tell as I haven't tried it yet. :)
