There is a large community of “panners” on blogs and YouTube who are doing the Finish 5 by Cinco De Mayo (May 5th) who post their monthly progress on using up five beauty products. Here are the ones I’ve chosen, all from Mary Kay Cosmetics.
I am including pictures so you can see how much product I had to start with and how much there is to date. Some will show blue marks to indicate the progress where possible.
Pressed Powder (possibly might be called Dual Coverage Powder Foundation but the name is worn off the bottom). I keep forgetting to use this so I haven’t made much progress plus I’m trying to use up another powder in my Finish 7 by Spring.
Pale Blush Cream Eye Colour is not working out for my eyes. I think it’s dried out as it looks patchy when I apply it. I have pulled this from my project and replaced it with the Lip Exfoliator from e.l.f. shown in the photo above. This is a sugar scrub for the lips that is brilliantly packaged in a lipstick tube for easy application. Just gently rub over lips and wash off. I suggest using it every other day.
Pink Stardust Highlighting Powder has some sparkle in it and I mix the two colours together to highlight my cheekbones and my browbone. Gotta be careful when using this so I don’t look ashy though. There’s some progress but this really isn’t one of my favourite products. I might have to use it as an eye shadow to use it up.
Retro Rose Lipstick was from Mary Kay’s Spring line and I love it! I use this every morning and take it with me in my purse for touch ups. Pretty good progress for someone who has NEVER used up an entire lip colour.
Winter Wishes Roll On Eau de Toilette is a current winter product and I love this too, but I’d like to use it up before switching to a summery scent. I have marked a blue mark so you can see where I started and where I am now.
Will you join me in this challenge? What 5 beauty products do you want to use and pan before May 5th? Leave me a comment and let’s get a conversation going.
