It’s hard for me to believe that I started this project in January. It both feels like much longer and not long at all. During that time I’ve made incredible progress! I’ve used up four items, though most of that is due to either expiry or realizing that I just couldn’t make the product work for me.
I was absolutely heartbroken to get rid of my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze as it was one of the first makeup items I’d purchased because of a beauty blogger, but it just creased too badly on my oily lids. The essence gel liner had the same issues for me towards the end, though it ended up crumbling to bits on me before I tossed it. The Revlon balmstain in Romantic was one of the last items to go – it started to smell funny and I just didn’t want to risk it being bad. But I actually used it all up! 🎉
Now onto the products I still have left. I have made really good progress on the Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Skimp but I barely used Bust. In truth I’ve barely worn eyeshadow (yet I still can’t help but lust over it…).
It’s impossible to tell where my progress is on the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paolo, but I’ve only used it a handful of times. Now that the weather is warm I hope to use it more frequently!
Lastly I have my two base products – the Bare Minerals READY Foundation and Marcelle BB Cream. I made good progress on both products as I as pairing them most days during the colder months. Now that it’s warmer outside I haven’t been liking how the powder has looked on my skin, so I’ve put it away for a while. I am hopeful that I will use the BB Cream up in the next month, though!
I don’t think I will end up adding to this Project Make a Dent as time goes on, as I’ve started to switch out my makeup on a monthly basis to make sure everything is getting equal love. It means fewer things will get used up, but I will make a dent in more things.
