This is my “good” update. I finished a number of items I’ve been working on, some of which I’ve been working on for years now. Very exciting.
Here’s where I was last month.
I knew I’d have a very good month if I worked at it! So let’s start with the photo of the finished items.
I finished my bare minerals bare pro foundation, my juice beauty illuminating primer, my Ilia lip balm, a brow pencil, a bite beauty lipstick and my hourglass dim light ambient lighting powder. Not pictured is my tower 28 lip jelly that is also finished. I am not sure where the container went! But this is the second one I’ve finished this year and I am hoping to finish 2 more by the end of this year even though they aren’t on my list.
Now for my progress on the other items along with a few items I am rolling in.
I’ve made good and steady progress on my mineral sunscreen. In fact, the only way I can get product out of it is to take the cap all the way off and squish the tube sideways so I think that’ll be gone next month.
While I planned to roll out the mac foundation, I kind of just want to keep working on it bit by bit? I know I didn’t make great progress as I was concentrating on the bare minerals powder foundation. But I am glad I did get to work on it a bit.
The setting spray has far less progress than I would have hoped!
My Sleek cream face palette has seen a bit of use. I’ve been using both the bronzer and the counter. However, I did not use this during the time I was working on the powder foundation so that slowed progress.
The tarte undereye color corrector is seeing great progress and I am using it daily. I really enjoy this product, even more than the becca one, so it is nice to know I’ve found a substitute. I am worked at the sides to clear them out before using the other half.
elf illuminating putty primer hasn’t seen a ton of use as it didn’t work well with the powder foundation but I’ve been trying to remember to use it again now that the powder foundation is used up.
Things I am rolling in-Laura Mercier secret brightening powder, there’s a little of this left and I’ve been working at it all year. That being said, this product is slow even with daily use. An Ofra liquid lipstick which is almost dry and I am scraping the sides of the container on, it’s a great color on me and easy to wear. A pan of blush that I hit pan on last year and have just been using any time I am wearing cooler toned eyeshadow. It’s my current default cooler toned blush and I am so close now to being finished that I want to keep going. My tarte lip mask, I am keeping this at work and using it when I am wearing masks so often that lipstick is a silly idea. My make up forever lip liner which I’ve had forever and looks great with the ofra liquid lipstick, and finally, a colourpop super shock shadow in the shade frog. It’s more of a topper shadow than anything else and I am using it anytime my eyeshadow is looking particularly lackluster.
I don’t really think that there’s much I’ll be able to complete in the upcoming month except perhaps the sunscreen and maybe the powder. Next month won’t be nearly as exciting of an update I am sure, but this month has been delightful.
