You guys, this is going to be the most sad and embarrassing update ever. Did I say Use it or Lose it? because it’s been definitely more on the lose it side. Here is my first post on this project.
So here is my update after 2 and a half months in:
This is what’s left of the products in this project
(again, excuse my lack of photography skills)
Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer in 002 Medium: as you can see this is missing from my updated pic. This was a product I was never fond of, I really didn’t feel it did anything for me, like literally nada. So when my mom came to my house and fell in love with it, I just said take it!
Rimmel matte BB cream in Medium: this is a never ending tube! I still love this BB cream, and I’m still using it at least 3-4 times a week (since December or January), and I’m pretty sure I still got at least 1/3 left. Maybe it’s because it is very watery (but not in a bad way) so a little goes a long way, but oh Lord! I’m so ready to be done with it.
Victoria´s Secret Party Perfect Makeup Kit (Blush): this is another product where a little goes a long way, since it is such a pigmented blush. You can baaarealy see a dent on it, and if I’m honest I’ve only been using it about twice a week. But I still love it and will keep trying to use it more.
Valmy Perfect Finish eyeshadow in Brown 06: now, let me tell you something, it is HARD to pan a dark color eyeshadow. Like I said on my intro post, I use this mostly to darken my outer corner, and sometimes on the crease, but I think it would take me a good 2 years of daily use (without fail) to pan this. So this will be getting passed on to my mom as well.
Almay intense i-color in Brown topaz (eyeliner): I finished this eyeliner! It is all gone! it took me about 3 weeks of use until I could no longer use it without hurting my eye with the plastic. I loved this formula and the color so I would definitely repurchase if I didn’t have another 4 brown liners to go through.
Mon-Reve eyeshadow iluminator cream: sadly this is also missing from my update because the consistency of the shadow changed, it turned really oily and although the smell didn’t change, I could tell it went bad, and it creased on me like no other! which it didn’t used to do before. I think it was because I used my finger to apply it every day, so I had to throw it out a couple of weeks ago.
Personi Jumbo Pencil in Midas: this was awful, very patchy, it also creased. The color was beautiful, but it wasn’t worth the hassle, so I also got rid of it when I got rid of the cream base shadow. I totally forgot to save it for this post, I’m sorry.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous: and the sad stories continue… I don’t have this anymore because I kept it in my purse to use during the week days, and one day I found it melted all over my makeup bag!. Still I don’t think I would’ve been able to finish this. Do you know how difficult it is to pull off orange lipstick every single day?? LOL! I know at first I was all “this is great, and versatile and you can go from peach to bright orange…” bah! humbug!
Almay lipliner in 201: I’ve done pretty good with this one I think. In the photo you can see I’ve used up about half of what I had left (the white pencil with the 2 black marks) and I don’t use this every day, just on the days when I go for a nude lip, but I can see myself finishing this lip liner within a month.
Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Rose Pearl: I’m done with this one too! I used the cr@p out of this gloss, and really enjoyed it! This was so pretty on its own or on top of pretty much any lipstick. This was a cult favorite with every reason!
So that’s it. I don’t think there will be another update since I will only be using 3 out of 10 of the original products going forward (the BB cream, the blush and the lip liner), the BB cream and the lip liner I know I will finish up. The blush… ehh, probably not, but I didn’t really expect to; I just wanted to remind myself to give it more love. I will be taking a short trip to the mountains in October and will be taking only the Victoria’s secret palette with me, so that will help a bit.
Thank you for reading! I have a really fun couple of posts planned next, and I promise to try harder to be around more!
