Back in the summer I chose 13 beauty related products I wanted to use up by Halloween. Most are products I enjoy using but are nearing their expiry dates so I want to get my monies worth. Let’s see how I did with this challenge. Did I or didn’t I use up all 13?
#1 Mary Kay CC Cream in Very Light EMPTY August 3rd
#2 Mary Kay Pink Sand Lip Crayon EMPTY September 23rd
#3 Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow EMPTY September 9th
#4 Benefit Cosmetics It’s Potent Eye Cream deluxe sample size EMPTY August 28th
#5 Smashbox Photo Finish Primer deluxe samples size EMPTY September 8th
#6 Rimmel London Bronzer EMPTY October 31st
Finale – There’s still some left around the edges but I can’t get much off on the brush I use, and I’m not going to take the time to repress this. I have other bronzers in my collection that I want to use and I’ve been using this Rimmel London Bronzer almost exclusively since February. So what I’ve discovered is that it takes at least 9 months to use one whole bronzer.
#7 Julep Duel Ended Kohl Eye Liner one side is black and the other brown. I didn’t use these up but did make some good progress. The lines on the right side of the paper are where I started and farthest left is where I ended up. Because this is a Kohl liner I find if I don’t smudge it out for a smokey eye, then it transfers up to my eye lid. Some days I just want a defined line so I didn’t use this eye liner every day. I figure I used up a third of the brown side and a fifth of the black. This has gone back into my stash so I can use some other liners for a while.
#9 Jergens BB Body Lotion EMPTY as of July 27th
#10 The Body Shop’s Coconut Body Butter EMPTY August 4th
#11 and #12
L’Oreal Hair Expertise Fibralogy Shampoo EMPTY August 16 and Conditioner EMPTY August 13
#13 Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara in Blue Smoke EMPTY July 24
That’s 12 EMPTY out of 13, which is fantastic in my opinion!
I will or have already repurchased: Mary Kay CC Cream, Benefit Gimme Brow, CoverGirl Super Sizer Mascara, and The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter.
