Yes, it is already time for an update on my project. I can’t believe that it’s already been three months but at the same time it feels like it has been forever since I have checked in on this project, so let’s jump in and see how my progress is going on my main project this year.
1. is 51. Something Orange: Etude House Dear Darling Water Tint
I think this one is going to be impossible to completely use up because a little goes a long way and the container of this is actually so big. I have used this a handful of times and really enjoyed it, though I am thinking I will be using it a bit more over the next few months so hopefully that will make a little bit of a dent in this product.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 90% Update #2 : 85%
2. is 40. Sample Product: Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in Dolly
I am still letting this live in my purse and have been reaching for it more frequently the past few months because I am trying to keep other products out of my purse instead of hoarding them like I typically do. So, this one is finally getting some use but still not a super noticeable amount.
Starting Amount: 90% Update #1: 90% Update #2: 80%
3. is 61. Something Brown: Colourpop Brow Pencil in Dope Taupe
I have been trying to use this but I really don’t like the color, I’m not sure why but this shade seems to lean a little to red for me and way too dark, so because I have other products that I have been enjoying much more it is making it very hard for me to want to use this one up. I am thinking about decluttering it but will probably give it a little more time.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 90% Update #2: 75%
4. is 63. Something Glittery: Mac Kitchmas Pigment
This feels like it’s never ending and something that I should have never tried to pan, sure I haven’t used this a ton but the few times that I have look like I have barely touched it, so this one is going to truly be a challenge.
Starting Amount: 95% Update #1: 90% Update #2: 90%
5. is 33. Chapstick/Lip Balm: First Aid Beauty Lip Therapy
I finished this one during my last check up, so this one is long gone and honestly, I wasn’t a huge fan of it.
Starting Amount: 95% Update #1: Finished
6. is 83. A Highlighter: Nars Eyeshadow in Andromeda
I am still loving this as a highlighter even though I know it is technically an eyeshadow, it’s just such a soft and pretty glow on the skin that I can’t stop using it. This does feel like I have started a pretty good dip in it since I last updated, I really think I am almost to hitting pan on this one.
Starting Amount: 95% Update #1 : 75% Update #2: 60%
7. is 80. Something Expensive: CoverFx Perfect Setting Powder
I just didn’t like this that much, I used probably about half of it before finally giving up on it. I felt like this left my face looking super powdery and just not good, so his one has been decluttered and passed along.
Starting Amount: 90% Update #1: 70% Update #2: Decluttered
8. is 37. A Maybelline Item: Maybelline Gigi Hadid Lipstick in McCall
I have finally used this a few times and I am unsure of how I feel about this shade one me, but I’m still playing with it and giving it a shot, but as usual I have not used this nearly as much as I wanted to.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1 : 100% Update #2: 95%
9. is 11. Something Hyped on Youtube: Anastasia Modern Renaissance
This is a fantastic palette and I find myself reaching for the every now and again, but still pretty frequently. My progress is slow but is being made with this one because it is such an easy and quick palette to use.
Starting Amount: 75% Update #1: 70% Update #2: 65%
10. is 239. Something Turquoise: Benefit Porefessional Primer
I think am finally to the point where I have started using my full size one, which is really exciting because that means maybe I can make some real progress with this product and actually start widdling it down. I have so far used two smaller sizes up completely, so I think that should count for something, right?
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 100% Technically Update #2: 95%
11. is 35. Non-Black Eyeliner: Too Faced Sketch Marker in Emerald
I have used this a handful of times and I think it’s really fun, it almost looks black over most eyeshadow looks but if you look closely you can tell that it is green and I think that is really interesting in a subtle way. I am concerned that this drying up though so I am not sure how much time I’ll have left with it.
Starting Amount: 90% Update #1 : 90% Update #2: 75%
12. is 19. Matte Lip Product: Beauty Bakerie Cake Pop Lippie in Skinny Dip
I have barely touched this still, I do not know what is wrong with me. I think this is a really pretty shade and it’s probably my best chance at finishing a lipstick, but I am still sitting on it and not using it nearly enough.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 95% Update #2: 90%
13. is 41. Something You Haven’t Used in A Year: Wet ‘N Wild Eyeliner in A Case of Blue
I love this eyeliner and I almost don’t want to use it because I don’t want to finish it, however, I know that is not good so I have been using this a little bit. It’s such a fun shade of eyeliner and I really like it.
Starting Amount: 50% Update #1: 50% Update #2: 40%
14. is 28. Blush: Too Faced Love Flush Blush in Baby Love
This is such an easy blush to use, it looks great on me and goes with pretty much any and every single look that I can come up with, it is really fantastic and I am a big fan. This is starting to get a pretty big dip in this and I’m not sure if I can finish it by the end of the year but I am sure that I can hit pan at the least. I am hoping to do so by my next update but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Starting Amount: 80% Update #1: 70% Update #2: 60%
15. is 118. Something From Lime Crime: Lime Crime Plushie in Dahlia
I really do love this lip product, it’s really easy to wear and looks good with just about any look, it’s also easy to apply and lasts for a good amount of time. I am very slowly making my way through this one.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1 : 85% Update #2: 80%
16. is 125. A Cult Classic: Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in Stripped
I haven’t touched this one at all yet, I have no idea why but I just haven’t, I really need to and I am going to make it my goal to use it at least five times by the next time that I check in, I think I can manage that much.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 100% Update #2: 100%
17. is 123. A Cream Product: Glossier Cloud Paint in Puff
I have been using this more since it started getting warmer outside, it’s just really lightweight and easy product to use. A little bit goes a long way though and I am not sure how far I have actually made it with this but I have been using it.
Starting Amount: 80% Update #1: 75% Update #2: 70%
18. is 144. Liquid Eyeshadow: Essence Metal Shock Liquid Eyeshadow in Moon Dust
This is something that I have used once but that is it, I want to start using this more and really play with this more, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I need to play with this more because this is such a fun silver.
Starting Amount: 100% Update #1: 100% Update #2: 100%
19. is 23. Item That Was A Gift: Tarte Tartelette in Bloom Palette
This probably wasn’t my best idea ever to throw this one in here because two palettes is hard to juggle, especially since both of them are neutral palettes and I do like fun colors too. I haven’t touched this one but maybe two times since my last update, I just haven’t been focusing on this one so I’m not sure how this one is going to go.
Starting Amount: 80% Update #1: 80% Update #2: 80%
I don’t think I’ve done as good as I would have liked with this update but I still have six months left, so there is for sure still time for me to use up some products or make some serious dents in things, I’ll just have to wait and see how it goes. I have decluttered one thing since the last update and haven’t finished a single thing, however, I have made some dents in things so I guess I’m not doing terribly. I am at the halfway point with this project and I am not sure how I am going to do by the end, so I guess it’s just time to wait and see.
How have you guys been doing with your own projects?
