Products I Want To Finish In 2018 Update #3

In January I discussed 18 products I want to finish up in 2018, kind of like a project pan. In this update I will list each product, how full it was at the beginning of the year, how full it is currently and how many times I have used each product in a month.

Face:

1. Makeup Revolution Ultra Face Base Primer – January: 1/3 full. Now: 1/4 full.
Number of uses in June: 5 | Number of uses in July: 9

I really didn’t anticipate there was as much primer left as there is, I thought I would have used this up by now. Don’t get me wrong I like this primer but it is a prime example (pardon the pun) of how many uses a product gives before it is actually finished, even though the tube feels lighter and you think there’s not much left it can be deceiving.

2. The Body Shop Vitamin C Face Mist โ€“ January: 1/3 full. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in June: 9 | Number of uses in July: 9

Stashy commented on the last update about applying face mist before moisturiser and I loved that suggestion! It was how I used the face mist most in the last two months and I will try it with my other mist too.

3. MAC Studio Moisture Cream 30ml โ€“ January: 1/3 full. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in June:ย  | Number of uses in July:

4. MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW10 – January: Mostly full. Now: 3/4 -2/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 15 | Number of uses in July: 22

Since incorporating facial oil into my evening skincare routine I have noticed less creasing around my nose which proves it’s not the product’s fault, it’s mine for having dry skin. This concealer is good at covering redness and layers up on itself well, if you apply layers to a certain area it doesn’t go patchy.

5. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain – January: Nearly full. Now: 2/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 8 | Number of uses in July: 17

I can see a significant amount of glass now from the product I have used up since the last update. I am liking this foundation more again but still not enough to repurchase once I’ve finished this bottle.

Eyes:

6. Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Copper – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in June: 3 | Number of uses in July: 7

I have been experimenting with my Shaaanxo palette a lot lately so this has taken a bit of a back seat. It is still one of my go to products for a simple and easy eye look.

7. Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in 002 Hazel – January: 1/2 left. Now: 1/3 left.
Number of uses in June: 15 | Number of uses in July: 22

This is starting to get really small. The end of the eyebrow pencil has actually snapped off a couple of times after I’ve sharpened it so that may have contributed to how short it’s getting but it all counts, right?! This product gets so much use and I would have used it roughly 400 times since I got it so it’s good value for money.

Lips:

8. BYS Fuschia Fusion – January: Almost empty. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in June: 3 | Number of uses in July: 6

Technically I finished this lipstick on August 2nd but because this post was written after the last use I’m calling it empty even though in the next bi-monthly update I will record two uses for August.

9. MAC – Syrup – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 2 | Number of uses in July: 3

I don’t know if I’ve shared this before but I always think of Syrup as the perfect first date lipstick, even though I’ve only worn it for one of my first dates. The colour is perfect if I’m not feeling in the mood for bold lips. I’d really like to finish Syrup but I’m not sure if I will considering there was less than 1/3 of Fuschia Surprise left at the beginning of the year and I just finished that.

10. MAC – Patisserie – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 2 | Number of uses in July: 2

Similar to Syrup, I’d like to finish Patisserie but because of how long it took to use up Fuschia Surprise I’m not sure I will. One of the lip products is finished now though so that does create the opening of me being able to use the rest of the reamining lip products more.

11. MAC – Blankety – January 2/3 full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in June: 1 | Number of uses in July: 1

I already know when I finish this nude I won’t be repurchasing it. Blankety looks more pink in swatches and on other people’s lips than it is. One coat seems to be the magic number, it doesn’t layer as well as other lipsticks.

12. Lancรดme Juicy Shaker in Berry In Love – January: 3/4 full. Now: 3/4 full.
Number of uses in June: 0 | Number of uses in July: 2

I’ve accepted that this is one of those products I enjoy when I do use it and I’m okay with the fact it may not be as regularly as the others.

13. Elizabeth Arden Luscious Raspberry (Sample) – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/2-1/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 1 | Number of uses in July: 2

This is the perfect raspberry shade and the formula is ok, it’s not bad but I do prefer traditional lipsticks. I will happily use up this sample!

14. MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Revved – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in June: 0 | Number of uses in July: 1

This is such a pretty peach for simple makeup looks and I need to use it more. The formula is nice and creamy and doesn’t slip. I much prefer the formula of this lip pencil to MAC cremesheen lipsticks, it’s like a cremesheen finish without being patchy.

Body/Fragrance:

15. The Body Shop Sparkler – January: 2/3 full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in June: 1 | Number of uses in July: 0

In all honesty, I have forgotten about this product lately. The glitter doesn’t look great on my work jumper like I thought it would and maybe I’m better off trying it as a body glitter on my neck and decolletage area.

16. Bath & Body Works Waikiki Beach Coconut Fragrance Mist – January: 3/4 full. Now: 2/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 1 | Number of uses in July: 0

I have stopped using this product as I noticed the scent gives me headaches.

17. The Body Shop White Musk Fragrance Mist – January: 3/4 full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 7 | Number of uses in July: 11

This is more feminine and floral than black musk and whenever my mum wears this body mist (she has a bottle of her own) she gets complimented. I actually fell in love with this scent because of her and the smell reminds me of her.

18. The Body Shop Black Musk Fragrance Mist – January: 3/4 full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in June: 6 | Number of uses in July: 10

I’m still a fan of this with Juicy Couture’s I Love Juicy Couture perfume applied over the top. It’s a light, refreshing combination which is nice for work and everyday wear as neither of the scents are strong and heavy.


I find the The Body Shop mists easy to use up, I apply them before my main perfume on work days and I’m hoping to finish both of these before the end of the year. I have made good progress on the face products as well, I finished the Vitamin C face mist and the Rimmel eyebrow pencil is getting tiny! I am really proud I finished the BYS lipstick, it is the first proper lipstick I bought for myself and it’s the first lipstick I’ve used up entirely. I’d still like to reach my goal of finishing up 50% of the products (nine) by the end of 2018.

Are you doing a project pan this year, how is it going?

      The Body Shop is one of my favourite stores to shop in! Would love to see what you get if you go on a spree ๐Ÿ™‚ Blankety is very pale and I find sometimes even too pale for me, look at reviews and makeup tutorials online and it might help you decide xx

    You’re making progress! I have that the body shop mist too, I have so many other mists though that I’ve barely used it which is a shame because I really like it!
    I’m impressed that you’re making so much headway on those Mac lipsticks, I almost never finish a full lipstick. Good luck finishing everything up!

    You’re doing really well! The brow pencil is amazing value if you’ve got that many uses from it! That’s a good tip from Stashy. Mists I usually don’t reach for but I should try one before moisturising x

    I think next year I’m going to pick out some harder to finish items that will take me the whole year to finish up, e.g eyeshadows and lipsticks which in my normal seasonal picks would be impossible. It’s great to see that you’re getting through what you’ve finished up! It’s amazing how many uses you actually get out of a lipstick before it’s done!
    Looks like you’re getting so close with some of the items!
    Is there a way you could use the Bath and Body works spray up as a room spray or something? Or do you think it will still give you headaches?

      I find the lip products hard sometimes because I like to rotate through all my shades and sticking to the same few can be testing at times. Youโ€™ll finish up all your products in a few months if you do something similar haha! It does make you think how many uses a product gives though. Maybe Iโ€™ll try the Bath and Body Works spray as a room spray in spring/summer when I can open my bedroom window and it can mix with fresh air and maybe it wonโ€™t give me a headache – thanks for the suggestion!
