Products I Want To Finish In 2018 Update #4

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: 1/8 full.
Number of uses in August: 16 | Number of uses in September: 11

I am definitely getting down to the end of this primer now. I have to really squeeze the tube to get product to come out and the amount I normally use doesn’t come out as easily. I’d be surprised if I didn’t finish this in the next couple of weeks.

2. The Body Shop Vitamin C Face Mist – January: 1/3 full. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in August: | Number of uses in September:

3. MAC Studio Moisture Cream 30mlJanuary: 1/3 full. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in August: | Number of uses in September:

4. MAC Studio Finish Concealer in NW10 – January: Mostly full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in August: 20 | Number of uses in September: 18

There is a significant dip in the middle of this concealer and while I don’t think I’ll finish it before the end of 2018 it will be interesting to see how far I can get and see whether or not I could even hit pan.

5. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain – January: Nearly full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in August: 16 | Number of uses in September: 15

If you said at the start of the year I could finish this foundation I probably wouldn’t have believed you but the progress I have made in two months since the last update is incredible. With the right combination of tools and products it has made me like this foundation again and it is good for everyday wear.

Eyes:

6. Max Factor Excess Shimmer in Copper – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/2 full.
Number of uses in August: 4 | Number of uses in September: 3

I love this eyeshadow for days I’m running short on time or don’t know what to wear and can rely on this teamed with a bold lip. I prefer to layer this over top of another eyeshadow, The Body Shop’s Honey Bronzer or Max Factor’s Auburn Envy are good base shadows under this.

7. Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in 002 Hazel – January: 1/2 left. Now: 1/4 left.
Number of uses in August: 20 | Number of uses in September: 18

This is the product that just keeps on giving. I don’t have to sharpen this often but it is getting to the stage where it’s getting small to hold.

Lips:

8. BYS Fuschia Surprise – January: Almost empty. Now: Empty.
Number of uses in August: | Number of uses in September:

9. MAC – Syrup – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/4 full.
Number of uses in August: 2 | Number of uses in September: 3

I’ve been loving Syrup more than usual lately. I do think now Fuschia Surprise is finished I am using the other lip colours a little more regularly.

10. MAC – Patisserie – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/4 full.
Number of uses in August: 2 | Number of uses in September: 4

This is ever so slightly closer to being finished than Syrup. It would be nice to finish another lip product by the end of the year.

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

I’m sure I’ve said this before but Blankety is really beautiful when it is paired with the right eye makeup. Some days it looks paler on the lips than others and I wouldn’t tend to wear Blankety with a light coloured eye look. The formula of Blankety is lovely and creamy but it’s not the most long lasting MAC lipstick.

12. Lancôme Juicy Shaker in Berry In Love – January: 3/4 full. Now: 2/3 full.
Number of uses in August: 2 | Number of uses in September: 1

I have been making more of an effort to apply this when I’m at home on my days off the past few months but I accept it probably won’t be a product I finish.

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

After finishing Fuschia Surprise this is the first colour I turn to for a bold lip as the other lip products in this project are all neutrals. The pigmentation and lasting power of this for a semi-gloss is really good. The raspberry colour is really gorgeous too!

14. MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in Revved – January: 1/2 full. Now: 1/3 full.
Number of uses in August: 1 | Number of uses in September: 2

This is another one of those lip products that looks nice and is fine for work but doesn’t have the longest staying power. I find this takes a few coats to build up to a nice, even peachy colour. I personally prefer the peachy-pink of Patisserie.

Body/Fragrance:

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

I haven’t tried this as a body glitter yet but I will for the summer.

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

I resigned this product as I noticed when I did use it I would get a headache.

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

I am quietly confident I will finish this and the Black Musk mist. I try to use each one on alternate days but I actually have more of the White Musk mist left. White Musk is slightly stronger so I don’t spray as much.

18. The Body Shop Black Musk Fragrance Mist – January: 3/4 full. Now: 1/4 full.
Number of uses in August: 9 | Number of uses in September: 8

See above.


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

    You remind me that I have a lot need to finish before they go bad. I guess I should go over them and warn myself to make sure I don’t add more during the end of year sale. (Or I should try finish them as fast as possible so I can buy more?)

      I tried to pick products I don’t hate and want to use more the sake of finishing then rather than I don’t like them and want them gone. My tips would be not to force yourself to use items, if you really don’t like them pass them along or if they’re old even get rid 😛 don’t feel like you can’t treat yourself once in a while either x

    You’re doing so well!! There’s roughly three months left for 2018 so I really think you can finish a few more or at least hit pan. 🙂 I’m so impressed that you’ve managed to empty a lippie, I have a few in my project pan but it’s so hard to commit to those shades lmao. I’m so close to finishing one though I really hope I do lol.

        You are so right!! Good luck with that! Wish me luck too I have so many products I still want to finish lol.
        And I believe it’s a sample size of the Make Up For Ever artist rouge lipstick, one of their “natural” shades. I will try my best to wear it for one entire week that should bring it down a bit more lol
