It’s been 3 weeks since I embarked on this Project Use-It-Up (more frequently known in the beauty community as Project Pan) challenge. I’ve been incorporating all 5 of the products I chose every (or almost every) day in my makeup looks. Here’s the progress I’ve made:
The most obvious change from 2 weeks ago is that one product is GONE! That’s because I completely used up my Too Faced Shadow Insurance… finally! Now I’m 1 down and 4 to go. I have a feeling that the 4 remaining are going to start running out all at the same time in a few more weeks, maybe with the exception of the eyeliner – that one seems to be going particularly slowly despite my incessant use of it.
I know you can’t tell, but I really feel like the Lip Insurance is on its last leg. Good thing, because it’s starting to acquire an interesting (gross) smell, kind of gasoline-like. I probably should just throw it out, but I’m determined to use it up since it does still work, at it is an expensive product.
The Wet n Wild eyeliner, like I said, isn’t going so great. I’ve been using it every day on both the top and bottom lash lines (even though I HATE using pencil liner on the top.) There’s definitely a little bit of progress, but just looking at the pictures it seems like it’s practically the same as it was on day 1.
On the other hand, my Wet n Wild Walking on Eggshells trio is going pretty steadily! The bottom shade is basically gone, but I guess there’s a itty bitty bit more I could scrape out. I’ve been using the top and middle colors as eyeliners, as well as the top as a cheekbone highlight and the middle as a contour color! That trick has helped me use these up even faster.
Lastly I’ve made significant progress on my Sonia Kashuk Shine Luxe Sheer Lip Color in Sheer Pink Lust. For some reason the top has gone down at an uneven angle, but I can tell this will be gone in the next couple of weeks. I have no problem wearing and reapplying it multiple times every day, since it’s the perfect neutral everyday color! It’s really more of a tinted balm/gloss than a lipstick and it’s very comfortable to wear.
This project has been really fun so far, and I can’t tell you how rewarding it felt to toss that Shadow Insurance into my Empties bin! I’m excited to finally use up these older products (some of them TOO old) in my collection.
