MakeUp Use Up Update #1

I apologize for not having any posts last week. I caught whatever bug was going around and couldn’t hit the Publish button.

If you havent been following along, here is my original post describing what products I plan on using up this year. MakeUp Use Up 2017

The products I was able to finish were:

  • BareMinerals Mineral Veil (deluxe)
  • BareMinerals Lash Domination (both samples)
  • Powerlash Mascara
  • Elf Liquid Liner
  • Eyeko Fat Liner
  • Eyeko Liner
  • Palladio Liner
  • Chella Eyebrow pencil in Tantalizing Taupe

The products I decluttered were:

  • Beautique Lip Crayon (too frosty on my lips)
  • Covergirl Lip Liner in Raisin (dried out)

I have hit pan on Foxy in my Urban Decay Naked basics palette and have moved on to WOS. I am also using Venus as a brow highlight as well as inner corner highlight.

I also have good progress on my LOC shadow stick and the BareMinerals 5 in one cream eyeshadows.

Im pretty pleased with my progress so far, but the rest of the products will be a bit slower to finish than some of the ‘gimmes’ I put into this project.  Im hoping to update again the beginning of July.

MakeUp Use Up 2017

I know Im a couple weeks late to posting what I plan on using up in 2017, but I wanted to make sure I had updated my inventory and will be using up my oldest makeup products.

In total I have 36 items I plan to pan, but a few are deluxe or travel sized products and some should be finished by Spring/Summer if I put my mind to it.

Face Products

  1. Bareminerals Mineral Veil Full Size – I am halfway done with this and I use it all the time, even on no makeup days. I do have another Mineral Veil in this size as well as a pressed version, but this is my oldest.
  2. Bareminerals Mineral Veil deluxe – I recently found this in an old makeup bag and its about halfway finished.
  3. Bareminerals Original Powder Foundation – This is my oldest powder foundation and its about halfway finished.
  4. Covergirl foundation powder – I just hit pan on this but its my oldest and only drug store face powder.
  5. Bareminerals Blemish Remedy Foundation – Im a little over halfway thru this.
  6. Palladio stick concealer – This is my oldest concealer and there is almost no use, so I need to use it up.

Lip Products

  1. Beautique Lip Crayon – I picked this up at a Sallys on sale and Ive only used it a couple of times.
  2. Covergirl Outlast Smoothwear Lip Liner – This only has minimum use.
  3. Chapstick Total Hydration – Lip Balms are a MUST especially in the winter. This is just one I recently received in a Walmart or Target Beauty Box that I need to use up.

Eyes

  1. LOC Out of your Shell Shadow Stick – I recently got this in a Birchbox and I dont normally use shadow sticks. There is almost no use.
  2. Bareminerals 5 in 1 cream eyeshadows – There are two of these. I used to use them alot, but got distracted last summer by some of the great palettes that came out. Since these are cream products, I really need to use them up.
  3. Eyeshadow – I dont remember this brand but its a nice sparkly eyeshadow. It applies similarly to a liquid lipstick.

  1. Powerlash Mascara – This might be one of my older mascaras and it won’t take long to use up.
  2. Bareminerals Lash Domination deluxe samples – There are two of these. One is almost at the end of its life and the only I might have a week or so left.
  3. Elf liquid Eyeliner – This was a great eyeliner. Its almost completely finished. (This is an almost gimme)
  4. Eyeko Fat Liquid Liner – I feel like this liner is the gift that keeps on giving. I think its going to dry up at any moment tho because this is my oldest liquid eyeliner in the marker form.
  5. Eyeko Liquid Liner – I got this in a recent Ipsy or Birchbox but its so small I thought I could use it up quickly.
  6. Ulta Gel Eyeliner ‘Smoke’ – One of my older eyeliners for the waterline. I need to use this up and get it out of my collection.
  7. Ulta Double Sided Gel Eyeliner ‘Blackout’ ‘Mink’ – Received this as part of a set and just want to use it up. BlackOut is a great liner and for some reason Mink doesnt seem as good as the regular size liner in the same line.
  8. Palladio liquid liner – One of my older products. I just want to use it up.

  1. Chella Eyebrow Pencil ‘Tantalizing Taupe’ – I received this in a Birchbox and while the color is too light, mixing it with other brow products allows me to put this to use.
  2. Trestique Highlight Stick – I dont use highlighter on my cheeks (Im 40+ and my skin has noticeable texture) so I use this as a brow highlight and inner corner highlight.

  1. Naked Basics Palette – I am only trying to hit pan on Foxy. This is what I use to set my eye primer.
  2. Palladio Palette – I am only trying to hit pan on this palette. While this is one of my less expensive palettes, I still really enjoy the results I get when I wear these colors.

So those are the products I hope to pan in 2017. Below is how Im charting the progress of some of the products.

I will probably online update once a quarter since tracking progress can be slow. Updates will consist of informing you what items Ive finished and showing progress on the charts above (if there is noticeable progress).
