November 2018 Empties

November 2018 Empties (2)

Hello there, today is all about empties, all the products that I have used up, aka trash, which is always weirdly exciting because it’s like mini-reviews on a lot of different products. Last month I used up a good amount of product with twenty-four products and this month I have crushed that with a total of twenty-six empties this month. I don’t know why but I just really love using up a product, it’s probably because I have too much stuff. So, let’s talk trash.

For your enjoyment here is a fun and festive playlist you can listen to while reading blogmas.

Project Pan 2018

Untitled design

It is time for another project pan, at this point I think it is impossible for me to finish one project and not start another one, so since I just finished one last weekend it is time to start another one this weekend. This one is different than my past few as it is the first time I am doing one that I plan on doing all year, so this is my one and only project pan for the year, I really wanted to test it out and see how it went, so that’s why we are here. I have once again used the same roulette list and method as some of my past ones, which is here if you want to check it out. I am really excited about this so let’s just jump right on in.

September 2017 Favorites + Face

September Favorites & Face

It’s that time again, time for me to talk about some of my favorite products from the last month, this post is a little light though as I feel like I didn’t wear a whole lot of makeup during September, which I’m going to blame on getting sick. But, since I hadn’t been wearing a ton of makeup during the month that means I don’t have a whole lot of favorites. Let’s just get into it and talk about the products I have been loving.

PSX_20170930_132958

Gold Target Bracelet – I couldn’t find this bracelet on the Target website and it was on clearance when I got it, so I’m assuming they don’t sell it anymore but this bracelet is still a favorite of mine. I’m not much of a bracelet girl but this one is really nice and adds just the right amount of something to an outfit, which is why it is a favorite for the month of September.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Blush Trio in Pool Party – This was in my shop my stash post for last month, so I guess it makes sense that this one is here, it’s one of the products that I was really focusing on using and trying out during the month of September and it left a good impression. I feel like I hear no one talk about these but I actually really like this one and have been debating picking up another one, these come with three shades and I just like having a little bit of variety at my fingertips.

Smith’s Tropical Ambrosia – I feel like everyone loves the Smith’s Rosebud Salve, but I don’t like the rose scent at all, I was debating the strawberry one a little while back but then saw that this one existed and I’m glad I picked this up. This is really moisturizing and the smells amazing, it has a really tropical fruity scent to it that doesn’t smell like straight up coconut, which I personally love.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – This might be my new holy grail mascara, I never bought high-end mascaras before really and this might be the reason why I’ve fallen hard for this. This doesn’t clump on me at all, this is really dark and this isn’t too wet, a recipe for a perfect mascara to me.

Skinfood Watermelon Mask – This mask is something that I love and am not surprised that I do, mostly because I pretty much love everything to do with watermelon. I have been using this mask a lot after I go for runs, it’s just really cooling and soothing, the smell is amazing too!

NYX Blotting Powder in Light – I always think powder is powder, but when I ran out of this for a short period of time I was reminded that’s not true, I’m super happy to have this back in my hands. This really sets my makeup fantastically and it really helps sheer out products if I get a little bit overly eager with the blush or the bronzer, another thing that I really appreciate.

Eyes: Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance: Tempera, Warm Taupe, Raw Sienna, Vermeer, Antique Bronze and Cyprus Umber. Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer In Noir, Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in In The Nude, Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in Ultra Black, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. Face: Milk Makeup Blur Stick, Dr. Jart BB Cream in Light Medium, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Fair, Anastasia Beverly Hills Foundation Stick in Dawn, NYX Blotting Powder in Light, NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me, Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Smokin’ Whistles, NYX Matte Setting Spray, Fiona Stiles Micro Precision Brow Sculpting Pencil in Neutral Brown. Lips: The Estee Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in In The Buff, Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss in Peach.

Those are all of my favorite products from September and the fact that I decided to share with you guys to represent the month, not that I think anyone look can represent last month since I really didn’t wear makeup nearly enough. It’s been a really slow month but I’m okay with that, these are still things that I have really been loving.

What have you been loving for the month of September?

Project Pan: New Years Goal!

Project Pan

I intended to start another project pan but I hadn’t intended to start it so soon, however, the post that I had planned for the day has inspired me to do a project pan instead. I was going to do a how much my makeup collection is worth post, but I started adding it up and really got terrified/mildly ashamed, so instead, I’m here doing a project pan in an attempt to jump-start using up some products. So, that’s what we’re doing. There will be a total of three posts about this project, as usual, this one, a check-in and then a finale. I will update probably mid-November, and then the finale will be January sixth, so this is the new year project pan. Instead of doing a roulette type of deal like my past couple projects, instead I just kind of rounded up a bunch of things I wanted to use up and ended up with 40 things, so this is going to be a really big and challenging project. I’m not expecting to get through it all but we’ll see how it goes. And since this is such a large project I would suggest grabbing a drink and a snack really quick because this is going to be a long one!

PSX_20170904_153650

1. Bath & Bodyworks Sweet On Paris Fragrance Mist – I have had this one for so long, this is my favorite scent and has been such a comforting scent for me over the years, but I’ve decided it’s time to really enjoy it and use it up before it goes off, which I’m surprised it hasn’t already since I’ve had this for so very long. I think I can get through this one in no time.

Amount left: 75%

2. Pixi Sun Mist – I purchased This on a whim, I was getting a couple of the other Pixi mists and I thought this one sounded awesome, it’s pretty much a sunscreen that you spritz on your face. The annoying thing is that I find myself often having to rub it in, which defeats the purpose to me, it’s not that serious but this just seemed like a super easy way to remember to always put on sunscreen.

Amount  Left: 100%

3. Bath & Body Works Frosted Wonderland Body Cream – I have a couple of these left so I’m trying to make my way through them because I’ve had them forever, and by a couple I mean a couple body creams, not of this scent exactly. I’ve had these a while and just really need to work on clearing out my little lotion stash.

Amount  Left: 50%

4. Pink Warm + Cozy Body Mist – I’ve finished one of these minis in a past project, it may have been one of the ones from this year actually, I can’t completely remember but either way I’ve used one of these up so I have complete confidence that I can finish this one during this project pan.

Amount  Left: 70%

PSX_20170904_153952

5. Bliss Fab Girl Slim Skin Firming Cream – Another thing that I picked up on a whim, that seems to be a bit of a problem for me, I’m trying to break that habit but I’m honestly not very good at it. Anyway, I have always been interested in this product because of chunky thighs, but at the same time, I feel like it’s such stupid and gimmicky product. Either way, I own this and I’m trying to use it up.

Amount  Left: 95%

6. Tarte Maracuja Oil – I got this in a set, I feel like I feel everyone talk about how much they love this, I own this and figure I should give this a try, especially because I’ve had it for almost a year now. I’m not sure what the best way to use this is though, suggestions?

Amount  Left: 95%

7. Belli Basics Clearly Coconut Oil – Another oil, I’m not sure where this one came from and I’m really not sure what to do with this one, but I’m trying to use up products and I’m not one to get rid of products without using them at least once or twice before really judging them, hence why this one is here. Suggestions of the best way to use this one as well?

Amount  Left: 100%

8. NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray – I have so many sprays, I don’t know when this started or how I got here, but I have so many to test out and use up, so I’ve decided to reach for this little guy and once I get through this one I’ll probably pick another one to throw in this project. Clearly, I am confident I can finish this one up.

Amount  Left: 100%

9. It Cosmetics CC+ Cream – I’m not sure I’m looking forward to this one, I’ve been trying to product out and it’s not as amazing as I thought it would be, it’s also a bit too dark for me still, so I end up using drops to lighten it. I guess we’ll see how this one goes.

Amount  Left: 90%

PSX_20170904_154238

10. NARS Velvet Lip Glide in Bound – I think I actually have two of these, not completely sure how I’ve come across two of them but I have, the goal is just to finish up one of them, however, if I finish up both that’s even better.

Amount  Left: 100%

11. Skin Food Black Sugar Mask – This is just a tiny little sample pot of this, so I’m sure I’ll have no problem getting through this one. I’m excited to give this a try, I’ve heard really good things and so far I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve tried from this brand.

Amount  Left: 100%

12. Clinique Pep Start Hydro Rish Moisturizer – I love this line so much, or at least every product I’ve tried so far, which has been three or four things I believe. This is also just a little tiny sample product that I’m going to be finished within no time, I’m sure of it.

Amount  Left: 90%

13. Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream – Another product from this range, this one is still a sample size but it’s a little large and I imagine this one will take me a little bit longer to finish up. I am super excited about trying out an eye cream though!

Amount  Left: 90%

14. Ouai Rose Hair + Body Oil – I’m not a fan of floral scents so I’m not sure if I’m going to like this one, everyone seems to be loving this brand so I am excited to test out some more products from them, but I’m just not sure how well I’m going to like this one.

Amount  Left: 100%

15. Ahava Dead Sea Crystal Osmoter Serum – I am not sure where I got this, not completely sure what this does and because of these two things, not sure why I’ve decided to include it in this project but I have, so we’re going to try and use this up and see how it goes.

Amount  Left: 100%

16. Milk Makeup Blur Stick – I just finished the one I was using from the last project, quite enjoyed it so I’ve decided to throw my other one in here and try to use it up. I am sure that I can’t-do that since I finished the other one up, granted, I finished it just a few days after the last project, but I bet if I really focus on this I’ll use it up in no time.

Amount  Left: 100%

PSX_20170904_154404

17. Tonymoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar – I believe this is the peach one, I’m not one hundred percent sure since I don’t believe it says it on the product itself and I’ve had it for a little while. I enjoy this product but it doesn’t really do a whole lot for me, plus it’s a little bit on the older side, so it might be time for this one to go.

Amount  Left: 70%

18. Essence Super Fine Eye Liner Pen in Deep Black – I am almost out of the eyeliner I use regularly so I’ve decided to try and use this one up, I hear this one is supposed to be really good so I’m curious to see if it will beat out my regular and well-loved eyeliner.

Amount  Left: 50%

19. Maybelline Baby Lips in Grape Vine – I’m not even sure if they make this shade anymore, I didn’t see it on the Ulta website. This is one of my favorite easy to wear lip products for the fall season, it’s moisturizing, glossy and gives a nice berry kind of tint to the lips that is perfect for the fall season. The only downside to this one for me is that it smells awful, like artificial grape powder and I personally hate that.

Amount  Left: 95%

20. Becca Back Light Priming Filter – I feel like I’ve had this sample for way too long and I don’t know why I’ve never really used it, everyone and their dog seems to love it, so I guess I’m finally going to find out what the hype is about.

Amount  Left: 100%

21. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Dopey – This is a little sample, I’ve pretty much gotten rid of all of my colour pop lip products, I’m just not a big fan of them and I think this might be the last one I have, so here’s to hoping I enjoy this one and can get through it all.

Amount  Left: 60%

22. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold – I have another makeup sample, this is such a pretty color and a product that I don’t think gets talked about enough, but when it does it seems like everyone who has used it loves it. I think this is going to be a pretty fun product to use up.

Amount  Left: 90%

23. The Estee Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in In The Buff – I’m pretty sure this brand doesn’t exist anymore? I feel like I heard something about that a little while ago, but I’ve done zero research into it. Either way, I’m trying to use up this lip liner. I’ve been into lip liner a lot more as of recently so I’m sure this one is going to be a breeze.

Amount  Left: 90%

24. Fiona Stiles Micro Precision Brow Sculpting Pencil in Neutral Brown – Another product that I think is going to be a breeze for me to use up, I say as a person who has never used up an entire brow pencil, but I’ve been enjoying using an eyebrow pencil a lot more recently so I’m thinking this one should be simple enough.

Amount  Left: 100%

25. Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in In The Nude – This is pretty much my go-to waterline eyeliner, I like a nice nude waterline. I have been wanting to try out another pencil though so I’m hoping to get through this one and start trying out a couple other eyeliners.

Amount  Left: 50%

26. Too Faced Sweet Peach Creamy Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Papa Don’t Peach – This one is back! If I don’t finish this one up during this project I’m probably going to end up passing it along because I’m never going to use it. This color is so pretty and so effortless, however, I really don’t like the scent of this product so it always holds me back on wanting to use it. We’ll have to wait and see how this one really goes.

Amount  Left: 90%

PSX_20170904_154518

27. Lorac Pro Matte Palette – Another product that is back and is pretty much impossible for me to ever use up, but I’m giving it another try. I have on shade completely gone, two almost finished, two with dents in them and three that are really going to need more love. I’m not expecting to finish this one up but I’ll see how it goes and how much I can really use up, I’m really hoping to finish the two that are basically done and the two with noticeable dents, but that might be too much. We will see.

Amount  Left: 70%

28. NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me – I love this blush! It’s probably one of my favorite ones for the fall time, it’s just perfect and so easy to wear with just about any look, I have had this for a while and I figured this would be a good one to use up. I’ll be sad to see it go but excited to use it up. Not that I really think I’m going to be able to finish up an entire blush in 3.5 months, but then again, who really knows.

Amount  Left: 90%

29. Honest Beauty Invisible Blurring Powder – I ran out of setting powder when I started putting together this list, so I dug through my stash and found this loose powder, which is what I’ve been using for the past couple of weeks now. Not sure how this one is going to go but I’m sure if I put my mind to it I can complete this one.

Amount  Left: 100%

30. Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Smoke N Whistles – I think this might have been the first highlighter that I ever owned, so it’s safe to say that I’ve had this one for a little while, this was also the first thing I ever really used from the brand I think or at least one of the first things. I think since I’m going to be focusing on using up this highlighter it’s going to be a breeze to use up.

Amount  Left: 50%

31. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light – Does it make me a liar because above I said I ran out of setting powder? I feel like this doesn’t because this isn’t just a typical setting powder, or at least I don’t think it is. While this is something that I want to use up I don’t think this is something that I would want to use every single day, mostly because I’m not sure that’s the look I’m always going for. I love this powder, I’m sad it’s so expensive but this is something that I’m hoping to use more and enjoy more and not think about the price, which is a little bit of the reason why it’s in this project.

Amount  Left: 85%

32.-40. Lush Products – This one I will break down into a real number list as I go along, but for right now I’m grouping them together because I don’t have names for each item. I want to use up eight Lush bath products, which should be super easy and I really think I could use up more over the next three and half months, but I decided to keep at eight for two reasons, one is that it makes it an even number and two is that it’s a little bit of a challenging number for me but it’s also something that I can easily accomplish, which I know doesn’t make a whole lot of sense together. I’m hoping to use up some bath product because the Christmas range is coming and I am sure I will snatch some of that up, so I need to use up some of the stuff I currently own before that happens.

And that is everything that I am including in this project pan! It’s a lot of things, I really honestly don’t think I’m going to get through them all, but I am excited to try to and to give some of my favorite products some heavy duty loving, but also try out some new things and see what I end up liking and not liking. I feel like that is a huge advantage to project pans for me, and probably to everyone, but finding out things that I love and don’t love are super useful. Anyway, I think I’m going to end this here because I’m sure this post has been far too long.

Review: Lorac Malibu Palette

Lorac Malibu Palette

Last week I talked about how I was starting another weekly thing for the month of September, so I am back with the second installment of these weekly posts. Every Friday for the month of September I will be talking about a great travel palette, some are more all in one than others, but all of the palettes that I will be talking about are great for travel and serve more than on purpose. This week I’m going to be reviewing the Lorac Malibu Palette, so let’s just jump right on in.

20170805_141808I believe Lorac just released these this past month, these are all a part of the LA line, they have four others in the line which means five total including this one. They are all the same size and have the same general idea as this one, they have four eyeshadows each and two cheek products, the types of cheek products really seem to vary from each one, which I think is interesting. These retail for $24.00 and they have a total of 0.4oz of product in them, which isn’t too bad.

I settled on this one just because this one looked like the one I’d be most interested in, they are all pretty neutral but this just called my name. I really think it was that really pretty dusty rose kind of shade that is included in this one, it almost looks like a blush shade but it’s not, it’s an eyeshadow. I’m sure you’re thinking I could use that as a blush too but we’ll get to that later.

20170805_141825

This one comes with four eyeshadows, a bronzer, and a highlighter. I really kind of wanted one with a highlighter just because I really love highlighters. The shadows in this one have a more neutral kind of thing going for them, but there is that pink color that really helps bring it to a little bit of a warmer place. Three of the eyeshadows are shimmery shades for sure and the more rose color is matte, I kind of wish that they did two mattes and two shimmers, but I still enjoy the shimmer shades.

I want to talk about the formula a little bit, I am a lover of Lorac eyeshadows, I feel like a lot of people either love or hate the formula but I happen to be on the side of loving them. However, I am so disappointed in this formula, it’s not the worst but it doesn’t hold up to the standards I have for Lorac eyeshadows. Lorac eyeshadows are usually very soft and blendable, but these aren’t so soft and are just harder to work with. These aren’t the worst eyeshadows that I’ve ever used but they aren’t the typical Lorac shadows I’m used to.

20170805_141920I’m going to go over some swatches now, we’re going to go from top to bottom, as usual, so let’s start at the very top. Beachside is a really shimmer champagne kind of color, this one is right up my alley. Curfside View, this is a more gold toned kind of shade but it’s still kind of a pretty soft lid kind of shade. Morning Surf is the matte shadow, it’s really pink and it kind of looks more like a blush than an eyeshadow to me, it’s very pretty though and I’m a big fan of this shade. Route 1 is the darkest of the four shades, it’s shimmery and looks like a warm chestnut kind of shade to me. Now, it’s time to get into the two face products in the bunch, the first one is the bronzer in the shade Long Board, it’s really light but it pulls pretty orange too, so I’m not the biggest fan of it. And the last swatch is the highlighter in the shade Afternoon Rose, which I like the look of but am slightly disappointed in because I thought it would be pinker than it is, but it’s still a very pretty highlighter.

Now, to talk about the look, let’s start with the best part of the makeup and that is the eye look, while I don’t find the eye look really exciting or find that I can create a ton of different looks using these four eyeshadows, it’s a look that I am happy with and think looked nice overall. Now, let’s talk about the part that I had to wipe off, the face makeup. I ended up wiping off the face makeup because the bronzer made my face look orange, it looked dreadful and just did not work for me. I used that pinky eyeshadow as a blush, which worked alright but it isn’t something I would recommend doing. And as for the highlighter, the highlighter was completely fine, it’s pretty subtle but that is something I’m fine with because it is pretty. But, the bronzer just killed the look for me.

Overall, I kind of regret picking up this palette, it just wasn’t everything I wanted it to be and overall it was pretty middle of the road for me. I am still a little bit curious about some of the other palettes from this collection, just because I kind of want to see if this one is a dud or if they all just aren’t great, but after trying this one I’m not completely sure that I want to pick up another one even though I am curious. So, the verdict on this one is that I would just pass on this exact one.

What is your favorite palette to travel with?

Review: Lorac I Love Brunch Palette

Lorac I -3 BrunchPalette Review

It’s time for me to introduce you to a fun new, short series that I have planned for all the Sundays during August. Since there are four Sundays this month and four seasons I’ve decided to do something maybe a little bit weird, but really not weird at the same time, I’m going to knock out four new palettes to me that I need to review and each one of them happens to remind me of a season. So, really I’m just reviewing eyeshadow palettes but they happen to make me think of each season, so of course, I am going to start off with spring and that means the Lorac I Love Brunch Palettewhich is a limited edition spring collection palette.

Spring 2017 Makeup Picks

springmakeuppicks

I started out intending this to be a spring blush pics blog post, but it ended up turning into makeup picks for spring as a whole. Yesterday was the first day of Spring, on Sunday we had a bit of snow, so I’m not sure what is going on there but I am super excited about spring being here and I am ready for the heat, bring the warmth! I’m ready for it.

Along with the warm weather that I am lusting after comes spring colors, which I also very much enjoy due to the fact that I really enjoy pastel colors. That’s pretty much the overall theme of my choices for today’s post, pretty pastel shades of makeup and fun colors, so if you’re strictly a neutrals kind of makeup lover then this post probably isn’t for you. Let’s get into talking about my spring makeup picks!

20170305_125055.jpg

I think the color theme with these products is very clearly pastel colored, which I quite enjoy, I didn’t realize that I had so many pastel colored things until recently but I also just recently picked most of these up but they still count.

Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in Lime Light. This looks so pretty and honestly, this is very pretty on the skin. It’s very soft and it’s not overly green, which I like, it’s a really fun product while also being really subtle.

Lorac Color Source Buildable Blush in Panorama. This is also light and pastel, it’s from the new spring line and I enjoy it. I will say this, I don’t love this blush as much as I thought that I might but I do like it and it’s very spring.

Wet ‘N Wild Color Icon Ombre Blush in In A Purple Haze. This blush is so pretty, it looks like spring in a blush and this is what inspired me to make this post. This blush is very subtle but it looks so pretty on the skin, it has a nice purple tint to it but nothing that over the top and I just really enjoy it.

NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow in Mermaid. This eyeshadow is gorgeous. I love it so much and kind of wish that I could wear it with all of my looks. It’s a really pretty soft aqua mint kind of color with a tiny bit of a gold shift to it, it’s really quite gorgeous. It’s also so soft and so pigmented, everything in the prismatic eyeshadow range is. I would for sure recommend any of these eyeshadows as I have 5 and they are all great.

NYX Pigment in Froyo. I really love this color, it’s so shimmery and softly purple, which I really like the look of. The only problem I might have with this is that the sifter doesn’t let out enough product so it takes a little bit of time to get enough product out to use.

Wet ‘N Wild Megaliner in A Case Of Blue. I love this eyeliner! The applicator is great and the pigmentation is fantastic, this color is so fun and I’m so sad that this one is limited edition and you cannot get it anymore but it’s so pretty and I’m so sad that I can’t get my hands on it anymore once this one runs out.

Tonymoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Peach. I love how cute the packaging is on this one, it’s seriously so adorable. I like that this smells like fresh peaches and this also leaves a really soft sheer wash on the lips and it’s just really pretty, moisturizing and smells amazing.

Wet ‘N Wild Color Icon Lip Gloss in Jackie A La Mode. This lipgloss is very light, I don’t like the look of it on the lips by itself but I do enjoy it topped with other things as the formula is really great in this one, not too sticky while being very glossy, I just really enjoy it.

20170305_125712.jpg

I remembered to include swatches, I know I often forget but this is something that I’m really trying to improve on, I’m just forgetful sometimes. Anyway, we’re going to start from top to bottom. Lorac Light Source Illuminating Highlighter in Lime Light, Lorac Color Source Buildable Blush in Panorama, Wet ‘N Wild Ombre Blush in In a Purple Haze, NYX Prismatic Eyeshadow Single in Mermaid, NYX Pigment in Froyo, Wet ‘N Wild Megaliner in A Case of Blue, Tonymoly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar in Peach and Wet ‘N Wild Color Icon Lipgloss in Jacke A La Mode.

Those are all of my spring makeup picks, I probably could have picked out a few more but I was trying to keep is down to the things that I really enjoy and think fit into the mold of spring best. All of these are very pastel and very pretty, I would recommend any single product on this list if you’re interested in it and can find them, some are limited edition but I believe most of them are out at this moment in time.

What are your picks for spring?

Project Pan Roulette: 17 By May Update

projectpanupdate

I am back with my first and only update on this product, I plan on coming back to wrap up this little project but this is the only check in that I have planned. I decided to do a short little four-month long project pan, just to try and get some things out of my collection and use some things up, so I decided to just keep it short and just post my intro, then my update two months later and two months later the finale. If you’re interested in learning a bit more about this project check out the original post hereNow I’m gonna jump into the update!

I want to start out by saying that yes, I am using the photos that I took originally because it has all of the products and I am too lazy to take new photos now, I’ll probably use the same set for the finale too just so you can see all of the physical products.

35. Non-Black Eyeliner: Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Cobalt. I started with this being full and I’ve been using this some, I don’t find myself reaching for this a ton though, but I think that’s because I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with a lot of eyeshadow color so I don’t find myself reaching for colorful eyeliner on top of it as much, I’m hoping to focus in on this a bit more in the next couple of months. Percent Left: 80%

37. Maybelline Item: Maybelline Matte + Poreless Foundation In Porcelain. I thought that I didn’t have that much product left in this product but I’ve been using this quite a lot over the past few months and I’m still going, I think I”m nearing the end of it, though. Percent Left: 10%

3. Deluxe Sized Item: Smashbox Photofinish Primer. I ended up getting another little sample of this one, though I am still going through this one, I’ve been using this every time I apply anything to my face but this primer just lasts for a long time. Percent Left: 40%

5. Drugstore Item: Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Porcelain. This has been one of the harder products to use up, which I knew that it would be but at the same time, I thought I would be a bit further along with it than this. Oh well, guess I have to keep working on it. Percent Left: 40%

50. Mac Product: Another product that I use super often, I’m pretty sure I frequently use everything in this first section except the eyeliner together often, and I’ve been really working on this and I think I was wrong about how much was left in it but it was hard to tell how much was in it due to the packaging. I’m trying my hardest with this one. Percent Left: 15%

21. Something You Regret Purchasing: Wet N Wild Contouring Palette in Dulce De Leche. Half of this is proving to be very easy for me to use up, that half is the lighter highlighting half of course, sometimes I use it to set under my eyes, as a base color or as an all over set to my face and it has a noticeable dent in it. The contour on the other hand, is not going so well, I’ve mostly been using it as a crease color and every so often as a contour/bronzer, but that’s not something I do a lot. I might have to start focusing on trying to use this more. Percent Left: 70%

18. Something Purple: Nyx Bright Idea Illuminating Stick in Lavender Lust. So, this ended up breaking and I just couldn’t fix it, it became a mess and dropped on the floor, so I decided to just toss this one and call it done. Percent Left: Finished 2/20/2017

2. Product In A Palette: Lorac Pro Matte Eyeshadow Palette. I’ve realized that this is going to be a really hard product to actually completely finish up using, I’m still going to try but if I am being honest this one is hard, much harder than I thought and once again I blame this all on bright colors coming into my life. I did hit pan on a couple of the shades though. Percent Left: 50%

29. Full Sized Product: Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve. I worked hard on this guy and I finished him up, which I was super proud of because I have had this lipstick for so long and I don’t often find myself going through. Percent Left: Finished 02/10/2017

44. Something Pink: Sephora Rouge Shine Lipstick in Love Spell. I use the crap out of this and then I forget that I have then I remember and then forget once again, that is the process with this little mini lipstick but I”m making progress on it. Percent Left: 40%

51. Something Orange. Lush Bouncy Bunny Shower Jelly. This one was really easy for me to finish up, I just sat it in the shower and used it until it was gone. Percent Left: Finished 01/24/17

48. Something You Want To Buy A Full Size Of/Repurchase: Wet N Wild Illumi-Naughty Highlighting and Concealing Pen in I-Vory Into You. I found this insanely easy to go through, I’ve had probably six of these since I found these about a year ago, I use them up so quickly and this one is gone too. Percent Left: Finished 01/29/2017

33. Chapstick/Lip Balm. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment in Berry. I had a sad moment with this, even though I hated the color I still loved the formula and it was expensive, but this had mold on it so I ended up just tossing this one into the trash. Percent Left: Finished 02/20/2017

11. Something Hyped Up On Youtube. L’Oreal Pure Clay Mask. This one is used up. IT wasn’t too hard to use up, I probably had five masks worth left in it so I breezed through it. Percent Left: Finished 03/12/2016

45. Skin Care Item. Lush Celebrate Body Lotion. I’ve been using this a lot, it’s really thick and moisturizing so it has been really quite enjoyable and I’ve made quite a little dent in this. Percent Left: 40%

41. Something You Haven’t Use in Over a Year: Colourpop Lippie Stix in Pinch. I started out really strong with this one but have once again forgotten that I even own this, so I really need to get back to working on this one. Percent Left: 70%

15: Something in a Previous Project Pan: Pink Warm and Cozy Body Mist. This was so easy to finish up and this is long gone, it was the second product that I used up and I have another one now, as you guys are probably aware. Percent Left: Finished 01/26/2017

Alright, that’s a total of 7 products used up out of 17 so far, which I think is pretty good. I am not sure that I will be able to finish everything but I think I can get through a few more things at least, we’ll have to wait and see I guess.
