So, the first update to this project comes a bit sooner than I was expecting to make one! I did say I would update you approximatively every two weeks, and I guess I am sticking to that, but I thought for sure my next update would be at least a few days into November. Either way, I'm updating early for a good reason; I've already used up two items! Yay!
First of all I'll leave a link to my previous post so that you can compare the progress etc.; First post .
MAC Pro Longwear Blush in 'Baby Don't Go'
The first item I've used up is this blush that I've used as a bronzer. There wasn't much left, but I certainly didn't expect to finish it in just two weeks! As the product got really thin, it did start breaking off and I did loose a few pieces, so that's why it went so quickly. Either way, I'm excited to have used this up and will be adding another bronzer to this project to also, hopefully, use up by the end of the year. I said in my first post that I wasn't sure if I would be adding more products to the project as it went on, but as I've finished two products so quickly, I have decided to add two more products. Also because I've realised there's at least one product that I might not be able to finish in time, after all.
Dior Addict Extreme Lipstick in 356 Cherie Bow
The second product I've used up is my Dior Addict Extreme lipstick. I think I am the most excited about this one as I've been trying to use up lipsticks for a while now. They take me aaages to go through, so having one more done is awesome. That's why the second new product I'm adding to the project is another lipstick.
ELF Complexion Perfection Powder
Now for the products I'm still working on. First out is this powder I use for setting the concealer under my eyes. While it looks like this is one of the products I should've had done in two weeks - you can see when comparing to my last post that it hasn't actually moved much, though there is definitely progress. I use it everyday, it's just I don't need much for just under my eyes. I think I'll be able to finish it by the end of the year though.
MAC Eyeshadow in 'Omega'
I use this to fill in my brows, and have been using it every day. It's moving slower because, again, the area I use it isn't that big. Still, I'm using it everyday, and there is definitely progress. Not a whole lot, but enough for me to think I can finish this by the end of the year.
Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in 'Moodlight' and 'Sugar Frost'
I've been using these two every day, except for just two days. I think I have really good progress on both, especially considering it's been only two weeks. Sugar Frost I'm especially surprised by, as I only use it as an inner-corner highlight. Moodlight is on the left in the picture, Sugar Frost to the right. I definitely think I can be able to use these up by the end of the year, but I think I'll be using them all the way until the end.
La Mer The Powder
Finally, of the products already in the project, I have the one I'm realising I might not be able to use up after all. I really thought I would be able to, but when trying to make a progress line, I couldn't see any difference at all. Granted, a loose powder like this, is really difficult to measure, as sometimes the powder is in the sifter, sometimes it's not, and it's hard to get the powder to spread out flat and completely even. I'll be sticking to it, and hopefully I'll at least be able to see some noticeable progress soon. Either way, I've added two more products to the project, just to make sure I'll still have 7 products finished.
Burberry Light Glow Blush in 'Earthy'
Now for the two new products I'm adding to the project. First I have this bronzer, which funnily enough, is another blush I use as a bronzer. There's barely any left in this, so it's really time for me to just finish it up and get it out of my collection. This is one of my all-time favourite bronzers, so it won't be a problem to use this everyday until it's done. I wouldn't surprised if this is finished by the end of November.
Chanel Rouge Allure in '73 Clandestine'
The lipstick I've added is a bit risky, as it's really dark, but as I've already finished a lipstick I don't necessarily need to use this one up to hit my goal, though I'm obviously aiming for that. This is a dark brown/red lipstick that is absolutely gorgeous. It's a very fall-colour though, that I almost never wear at any other time in the year. Because of that, I decided I wanted to really focus on using it as much as possible the next couple of months, and if I can't finish it up, I'll at least make some decent progress. I think I might be able to use it up though, if I really stick to it.
So that's it. I'll do another update in about two weeks time, hopefully with some more products used up, though I don't really think any of the products in the project now will be finished that quickly. Having said that, I didn't think so last time either. For now, these are the products I'm currently working on.
