While I am a bit late in posting my update this month, I am still on a roll with my projects. As a reminder, this is one where I am using prompts to choose products. And I am trying to keep this one primarily makeup related. As I am working through the prompts, I am listing them and then crossing off the ones I have completed or made a goal on.
1. A product with cute packaging
. An expensive product 3. A product in loose form
4. A drugstore product
A product I bought because of youtube
6. An old favorite
7. A product you haven’t used in a while.
8. A product of your choosing
9. A product from a previous project.
10. A unique product
11. A product you don’t like
And here’s the photo from last month:
I rolled out the hourglass powder and rolled in the white eyeliner from colourpop.
Here’s where I am now:
A product I haven’t used in a while was my blue silkissimee L’Oreal liner, and I had the goal to use it past the L’Oreal brand name. I knew I’d have it done this month as I was so close last month. Indeed, I was technically finished a week later though I continued to use it all month.
A product I didn’t like was the white colourpop eyeliner. I never thought it worked well, and despite it being quite new to my collection, it dried out, cracked, and bits of it kept breaking off and falling on my floor, or one time in my coffee, which I only found after I finished drinking my coffee. This is finished because probably after 3 uses the last bit broke off and fell on the floor. The three uses I had done had frustrated me completely anyhow. So I was not sorry that happened.
A drugstore product is my nyx eyebrow pencil which I am still using almost daily and working my way through. I have little to say about this other than I bet I’ll still be working on this well into the new year.
A product of my choosing was my it cosmetics cc cream. Despite having worked on finishing my matte cc cream at the beginning of the month, I did manage to get a good amount of this used. I am hoping that this month will be the final push on this one and I’ll finish it up so I can roll in something new next month.
An old favorite is the sample of benefit hula bronzer. While I realize that it doesn’t look like I really made any sort of dent in this, I have been using it consistently. I just decided to concentrate my brush on areas that did not have pan already.
My unique product is my little pan of frankenhighlight I created myself. It’s crumbly now, and I wasn’t able to finish because using this as a face highlight is too light for my skin in deep summer. I’ve been using it as an inner corner highlight but that’s slow going!
And with that, I get to roll in two new items.
12. A product you bought online.
The question is, what product didn’t I buy online? The vast majority of my makeup collecting has been online purchases. So, this prompt left me a ton of freedom. So I chose an Urban Decay eyeliner color starfire. It’s a travel size liner and I chose it because my eyeshadow project currently has a ton of coppery shimmers in it. This is a nice subtle way to tie in all those coppery colors. My goal is to work down to the 24 on the label.
13. A product you received as a gift.
I am fairly certain that there’s only one product I’ve ever received as a gift and that’s my Urban Decay Born to Run palette. So I’ve rolled it in. It’s been a goal this year to use this palette more, so I am not at all sad about this. My goal here is to hit pan on something in this palette. In reality, the closest I am to that in ANY shade is Big Sky, the blue that was in my eyeshadow project. While some colors in this palette are misses, by and large, I really like this palette. I plan to concentrate my usage for my eyeshadow roulette challenge on this palette as well. 30 uses of a few colors should help me hit pan, ideally before the end of the year.
So, that’s a wrap for another month. It’s nice that the two items I rolled out were balanced, one a longer term goal and the other short term. I am still enjoying this limited makeup project pan. I like that I can explore various items within my collection while also concentrating on a few select items to make use of them or use them up. It’s a nice balance I am enjoying very much!
