FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: How I Deal With The Tons Of Beauty Products I Own

I have a question.

Why is it still so effin' hot? LOL.

My makeup is literally melting so I'm just staying indoors today. Oh, I know-I'll just hit the gym in a few so I can justify taking my makeup off, thus there will be one less thing that I have to worry about today!

But first, Fan Mail Fridays.

Today's question is by Elou. She asks:

Hi Martha,
 Been reading and a fan of your blog, but never got the chance to write an email to you so here’s my first. I just wonder, you must have a lot of free things already that you get from all your sponsors nowadays. What do you do with them after testing them? I know that you don’t use them all at once or everyday. How do you really manage them all?

Hey Elou!

Thanks for your entertaining question. It's true that I get so many beauty products on a weekly basis and I won't lie, sometimes, I don't know what to do with them anymore BUT-I'm not complaining-- Blessings are blessings and even if I don't know what to make of the beauty products I currently have (and receive) anymore, I'm still happy I have them because I get to bless others with these! :)

So yeah, it's also true that a couple of the products I receive, I only test for a couple of days. But what do I do with them after the testing phase? Three things. I'll tell you after the cut.

1. I keep 'em for a while- most especially the products that wowed me in the beginning or the ones that I think I'll end up liking eventually.

2. I give them away to my readers- the ones that I give away in my Commenter Of The Month program are actually mine-they're given to me as samples, but since I still have a lot to use, I just choose to give some away.

3. I give them away to friends and my family- share your blessings, right? :)

I hope this answers your question. Have a great Friday, everyone. Stay cool! :)

**Got a burning question about makeups, skin care products, beauty, dieting, and health tips, relationships, and whatever? Just send them to or shoot 'em up at The Beauty Junkee's FB Fan Page via the MESSAGE button and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. (Please, do not send me Math- related queries. :D)

  2. How i wish i was related to you or can we be friends, ms. martha? Maybe your dog needs a friend? I have a dog, too!

  3. I also wondered the same question. :) I hope I could be as lucky as you. I want to have lots of products hanggang sa hindi ko na alam which one to use first. :) Maraming pwedeng itest and itry. I'm one of your COM so I'm really happy that you had extra makeups which I was really drooling over. :D

  4. You are really an honest and generous person. Super love you na talaga. More more blessings pa talaga sayo Martha =)

  5. Sharing is caring. So thanks Miss Martha for letting others try the products that you have received. May you have more blessings=)

  6. Been wanting to ask this for a long time too! Actually to all blogs I read. Hehe.. Can I make a follow up question?
    How about your makeup, the ones you really keep, how do use all of them? Or how do you manage them?

  7. Super envious! I hope you sell some of them to me. haha :D

  8. We are truly lucky readers:)Not only we have a chance to have a free products but we are lucky because you share with all your heart:)

  10. It's always a good idea to share your blessings. Besides, you can't use them all at once and some of them might go bad if you keep them for too long.

  12. Miz Eloise and Jhake: Haha/ :D

    Elle: That's true! That's why I have giveaways every now and then. :)

    Anee_22: I have my favorites that I use almost everyday, but sometimes, I allot certain days to trying out my new makeups or the makeups that I haven't touched for a while. For some, I give them away too. :)

    Flexxy and Mommy Charm: Thank you! Same with all of you! :)

    Abegaill: It's a good problem, but it's endless cleaning and cleaning, I tell you. :)
