Makeup Diet #2

February 24, 2015

Hello friends, I thought I would touch base with my Makeup Diet series (check out the first post here). This is pretty much a way for me to target products to use up (or get more use out of) and this is the one month progress post.

Let's start with the products that I have used up! I have finally finished both Revlon Colourstay Foundations in Buff and Natural Beige. I do love these foundations, but it is time to move on and let go. I also finished the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine. After finishing up these products I have decided to introduce a couple more products into the mix. I will mention the new products at the end of this post.

I have hit pan on the Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow Liner in Marry Up and the Bobbi Brown Skin Weightless Powder Foundation in Sand. I haven't really "hit pan" on the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Light, but it is nearly finished. The concealer in Sand has quite a way to go. I will be happy to see the Bobbi Brown powder go, but I have been using the Benefit Cream Shadow 5 or 6 days a week and have become quite attached! It will be a sad day when I use this up.

Speaking of products that I have become quite attached to... I have become a huge fan of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Brunette and will be very sad to see this go. I previously didn't like this eyebrow pencil as it was too thin and was bad at filling in large sections of my brows. I have started using this just to define the top and bottom line of my brows and I have been loving it! I still hate how expensive it is for such a small amount of product, but I surprisingly have become a convert.

Some of the products seem to be never ending... these are the Too Faced Mocha Mi Amore Blush, which I have been using EVERY DAY and have made no dent in the pan, the Lancôme Grandiose Mascara that I have been using for a good 6 months and it is still going strong, and the Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Eyeliner in Absolute Brown which I have been using a good 4-5 days a week and there is no sign of drying up.

The other products are the Anastasia Beverly Hills Tinted Brow Gel in Granite which I use most days and am still not loving, and the John Plunkett Instant Primer which probably has a couple of weeks usage left.

My worst progress is with the Skindinavia No More Shine Makeup Finish... I keep forgetting to use this (as it's a step that I rarely use and don't see any positive effects with).

Onto the new products that I am throwing into the mix.

To replace the Revlon Colourstay foundations I have decided to throw my Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous Foundation into the mix. This was my top foundation of 2013 and that year I did use up two bottles! I think I overdosed a little on it and moved on, so I want to go back and use this bottle up. I have older foundations sitting in my drawer that I should probably target first, but I know that I am a big fan of this foundation and it would be easy to use on a daily basis.

To replace the Korres Lip Butter I have chosen the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey. Once again, this is a very easy product to throw on at work everyday, I love the shade, and I only have a tiny amount left. It's a win win.

I need to also mention the Benefit BrowZings Palette in Light. I was supposed to include this in the first Makeup Diet post, but I totally forgot. This has been the main brow product that I have been using for months and months now, and I have hit some major pan and am now trying to use it up.

Now for a couple of products that I'm not trying to use up, but I am trying to get more use out of them. Firstly, the Tom Ford blush in Flush which I rediscovered while doing my Addicted to Blush Tag. I think because this was expensive I was reluctant to use it too much, but it has been sitting in my drawer for too long and it needs some love! I have also targeted the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in the hopes that it will be like the Anastasia Brow Wiz and after forcing myself to use it often I will go from disliking it to loving it... fingers crossed!

  1. That Tom Ford blush really is very pretty, at least in the pan. Hope it looks great on!

  3. This is a great idea! I switch constantly between products and things rarely get used completely! I may have to try this system :)
