About six months ago, I shared a blog post about Project Panning. In it I had talked about a few makeup products that I wanted to use up this year and taking stock of my makeup collections as a whole. I have no problem going through bath and body products, but finishing up makeup products can take forever! I started to feel really discouraged when every month, I wouldn’t have any makeup empties even after making a conscious effort to use products. Then, I stumbled upon Evelyn from Beauty Wolf Girl (her IG handle). Her blog, We Were Raised By Wolves, has a whole playlist of Makeup Empties where you can actually see noticeable progress on her project pans because they are done every six months. Go check out her Makeup Empties, and everything else she has to share! She has some amazing foodie recipes and some great product reviews!
So I started saving my makeup empties around six months ago to see what actual progress I could make in that time, what products I seem to use up quicker or take me longer to use, and what I have enjoyed or disliked from the past six months. I did not finish as many products as I wanted to in this first six months, but I have a feeling that these next will have more empties!
Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray: I enjoyed this product and I would consider repurchasing it! It helped control my oil, kept my makeup in place all day, and it is a good price for the product.
Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara: I very much enjoyed this mascara, and I do not like many mascaras! This did not clump up my lashes, had a nice dry formula, and left my lashes long and volumized. I would consider buying this mascara again. I also have found that I enjoy mascara in trial-size tubes better than mascara in full-sized tubes. Anyone else?
L’oreal Infallible Pro-Glow Liquid Foundation: Now, I am an oily girl, so normally I would not buy this product, but I have been struggling with some dry patches on my skin, so I was looking for something that would not stick to those dry patches. I enjoyed this product. It is a very beautiful foundation, gives a nice glow, and provides medium coverage for the skin. I would consider repurchasing this again if I go through another bout of dry skin. I highly recommend this for people with dry skin.
Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray: I enjoy this setting spray, but I also enjoy a lot of other drugstore setting sprays that are much cheaper. I will not be repurchasing this product.
L’oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Powder Foundation: I LOVED this powder foundation! It has great coverage, lasts all day, keeps me matte, and looks good on the skin. I highly recommend this, and I will be repurchasing it someday!
Wet ‘N Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow: I FINISHED AN EYESHADOW!!! I am so excited to finish an eyeshadow and get it out of my stash. I finished one of the eyeshadows in the Comfort Zone palette, and I am close to finishing more! I would repurchase this product, if I did not already have enough eyeshadow in my stash!
Maybelline The Colossal Volum’ Express: This is my favorite mascara right now! I have already repurchased and am using it again! I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a nice everyday mascara that gives good volume and length.
Overall, I am happy with what I have finished in these first six months, and I am even happier with the amount of products in my collection that I have hit pan on and will soon be finished. I am hoping that within these next six months, I will have finished several more makeup products and that I can start working on some newer products! Thank you Eve, for this great idea!
