I am so relieved this Finish 5 by Fall project is over. I got so tired of using the same products over and over again – honestly, I probably could have used up more but I just stopped really caring in the last month. Which is why next time around I’m going to be a bit more strategic in my products. (Stay tuned for that next week.) But that being said, I think I did a pretty good job finishing up products this time around!
Bobbi Brown Concealer Duo: FINISHED. I did a happy dance when I finally finished the powder side of this! It took forever to use up! I won’t be repurchasing because it’s sooooo expensive and I’ve got the Lise Watier concealer palette now.
Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Eyeliner in Black: Trashed. I just couldn’t get it to work for me. It smudged and transferred everywhere and one day I just got frustrated and threw it out. Good riddance!
Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Eyeliner in Nude: Still kicking. I made a decent dent in this pencil, but it’s not done yet! It doesn’t stay in my waterline all day, but I’m going to keep it around for a while anyway.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze: Still kicking. I honestly didn’t make much of a dent since my last update halfway through summer. There’s still about half of the pot left – there is so much product in one of these! I’m a little disenchanted with the Color Tattoos right now, if I’m honest – they just won’t stay put on my eyelids anymore! I’m seriously considering destashing a bunch of them…
NARS Light Optimizing Primer: FINISHED. I am so glad to get this out of my stash – it didn’t do much in the way of priming, if I’m honest, it just felt like an extra dose of moisture. Which is alright I suppose, but my oily skin doesn’t really need that.
Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional: FINISHED. I’m really sad to see this go. If I ever use up the rest of my primers in my stash I might actually repurchase this.
Smashbox Photo Finish More than Primer – Blemish Prone Skin: Still kicking. Turns out three primers is a lot to finish in one season! I’m still going to keep working on this, though I really am not a fan.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation: FINISHED. I miss this foundation in my life so badly, but I can’t justify spending the money when I have four other liquid foundations to use.
Revlon Lip Butter in Cherry Tart: Still kicking. I haven’t used much of this – if any – since my last update, but this is probably the closest I’ve ever come to using up a lipstick-like object. That being said I don’t know if I’ll ever finish – I’m just not feeling shiny red lips most of the time. I’ll keep it around for the winter, just in case, but if it’s still not used up by March it’s a goner.
Final Verdict: finished 4 out of 9, trashed 1 – that’s pretty good considering I didn’t wear makeup for most of the summer! Let me know in the comments if you did any Project Pans/Finish 5 projects this summer and how it went!
