Makeup Products I Want To Use Up - Empties Project

Thursday, March 19, 2015

Hello.
As I've mentioned in some of my posts, especially in my makeup collection, over the last 3 months I've been really trying to use up some makeup products.
In my toiletry bag I keep half of these products and when they're finished the other half will replace them. I'll always find a new makeup item that I don't like and I can't really give away to any of friends as it was used before. Even tough I hate some of the items, I'll use them up because it's a good challenge and to think I bought all of these I don't want to throw it away. You'll read about them more in my future empties, hopefully.

EYES

First eyeshadow product is Illuminate eye crayon from Oriflame. I used to use this one all the time and then stopped, however there is still a lot product left in it, so it needs some love. Second one is a Manhattan eyeshadow base which totally sucks as it is kinda flaky. Third item is a Catrice LE Iridescent topper which I reviewed and still love but I have a backup and need to remind myself to use this product more often. An old S-he eyeshadow trio which is finally going to be finished. And old Essence ET Circus Circus eyeshadow was again forgotten so it is kind of dry and I'll use it until it completely dries out. Alverde eyeshadow pencil - Champagne is horrible: dry and doesn't leave much color on your eyes. And final product is an old Essence eye shimmer pencil from which is nice as a highlighter in inner corner of your eyes.


First product: eyepencil from Essence ET African Queen is pointless as this flat design doesn't really work nicely. Second and third eye pencils are from Essence as well and I loved the peachy&purple one but it needs to be used up. Essence liquid ink matt eyeliner is a fail as it can flake off your eyes like crazy, so I really need to use it up. Two mascaras: Max Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof version which sucks because it almost doesn't do anything to my lashes and second one by Maybelline: Colossal Volume Cat Eyes as it has a weird brush which is not my favorite.


LIPS



I know some of these are a bit older, however they don't have a weird smell of texture yet, so I will try to use them up before they go bad. H&M lipgloss - Tangerine Punch smells so fruity and nice but I forgot about it. Second one is Catrice Beautifying lip smoother which is kind of new but I prefer Clarins one. Third item is an Essence ET Love Letters jumbo sheer stick - 01 Rosy in Love and I'd like to use it up as it is just like a lip balm - nothing special (I did swatch it on my blog). Nivea Volume Shine Glace lipgloss - Milkshake was my favorite peachy/nude lipgloss and I'll soon finish it up + I don't think you can get this one anywhere anymore which is sad. Next one is an old Essence lipgloss and if it goes bad I'll throw it away. The last lipgloss is a random one from Butterfly collection and smells like cherries or something. Next is: Makeup Revolution Amazing Care Lipstick - Love a Hug  (again, reviewed) -  it's not that special and I have similar colors from Maybelline Baby lipsEssence LT Bloom me up lipstick has a really pretty color and smell, however it is not that special and I don't need it so I'll enjoy using it up.

FACE

Firstly I want to use up and old Essence blush - 03 bronzing star which works better as a bronzer/blush and it was my first blush. This one will be really hard to use up. Next items are two concealers: Eucerin DermoPURIFYER cover stick and Deborah AGEReset which I like and have talked about them recently, however I needed to decide which ones I will use up firstly (my collection of concealers is too big). Also Eucerin has an expiring date on it (december 2015). Following, Revlon Colorstay - 150 Buff just because I have a back-up of this and now I managed to break the top, so I can't screw it on, it just sits on top.. This Oriflame Perfecting Face primer is just whatever and it is so hard to use up. And last one is Fixing Mist from MUA as it is a bit older and I have a new one to replace it.

p.s. ne pozabite na dva giveawaya oz. NAGRADNI IGRI, ki se odvijata na blogu:
1. Paket ličil v zahvalo za spremljanje bloga
2. V sodelovanju z L'oreal podjetjem podarjamo 3 nove Butterfly Intenza maskare.

Love and Lemons, Simona

  1. Uff, veliko ličil za porabit. :) si si zadala fajn cilj. :) meni je tudi škoda, da bi ličila vrgla stran samo zato, ker jih ne uspem porabit/mi niso všeč in se pokvarijo. :/
    Jaz mam tudi že med osnutki nekaj podobnega za objavo, ampak še nisem nabrala vseh izdelkov skupaj + se bom šele komaj spravila zraven k porabljanju, tako da sem še na čistem začetku. :P Ampak sem v zadnjem času nakupila toliko kozmetike, da je tak projekt must.

    1. sicer še ne vem kako bom vse to porabila, ampak če se bo kaj pokvarlo se pač bo, na žalost :)
      nekaj mi bo uspelo in bom čist zadovoljna :)
      no jaz tak ne kupujem več ličil, ampak največjo težavo imam pri maskarah, ki sem jih mogla še ocenit :D
      drugač pa upam, da nas čimveč še to naredi :3

    2. že to, da si sploh začela s projektom, je pohvale vredno. :) pa tudi če se ti bo kaj pokvarila, vsaj ne boš imela 'slabe vesti', ker si vsaj izdelek probala porabit, kot pa bi ga pustila parkrat uporabljanega nekje v predalu, da se pokvari, itd. :D
      maskare se tudi meni zdijo velik problem, ker nočem jih ravno po parih mesecih stran vreči, če so še dobre, pa še malo se ličim in mi je potem žal, če vržem stran npr. 4 mesece staro maskaro, ki je niti nisem uporabljala ogromno.
      Jaa, je fajn motivacija, če veš, da jih več dela tak projekt. :)))

    3. hehe :) no sej sem kr ponosna, da še kr vztrajam, čeprav se mi zdi, da se eni izdelki sploooh nočejo porabit -.-
      jaz mam ful redko kako maskaro, ko mi je res "shitty", ker običajno vse vredu delujejo na meni :D

  2. ooo tak cilj bi tudi jaz morala imeti. in preden vse porabit seveda nič kupiti. ker imam celo goro korektorjev in senčk in label ki jih res moram porabit preden kaj kupim. :))

    1. se kr zavedam ja, ampak če pomislim kakšno zbirko imam je to res malo...kot sem napisala pa probam ene izdelke pred drugimi porabit in potem bo enkrat konec :)

  5. Jaz sem si na začetku marca dala vse izdelke, ki jih želim porabiti, v eno škatlo in sedaj se trudim uporabljati samo tiste. Na žalost mi jih še ni uspelo pofotkati )marec je res crazy mesec, slab za bloganje :/), upam pa, da mi uspe naslednji teden in da naredim objavo. Tudi sama sem pri izdelkih za ustnice šla na veliko, izbrala kar nekaj izdelkov (čeprav jih je nekaj že na pol porabljenih), ampak se bojim, da mi jih ne bo uspelo porabiti.

    1. no sej jaz druge izdelke porabljam kateri so odprti in mi vedno uspeva...ampak za ličila je drugač, ker se res moreš organizirat da vse porabiš in je večji izziv :)
      enkrat ti bo uspelo..tud meni bo kr težko tole porabit :S

  6. tudi jaz sem se lotila tega, čeprav nisem tako pogumna da bi si zadala veliko količino na enkrat za porabit, bi verjetno morala začet samo z nekaj izdelki, za več motivacije.. no ene par sem jih pa res porabila pred kratkim, občutek je noro dober :P

    super projekt :)!

    1. no sej kot sem napisala, tega vsega nimam v toaletni torbici, ker ne morem vseh senčil in glosov naenkrat porabit, ampak se ful trudim :D .. ja vrjamem !

    1. res je kr velik cilj in že zaradi tega, da bi kakšno objavo s temi praznimi izdelki spisala, se bom ful trudla :D

  8. Uff...I feel you :) Se tudi sama trudim, pa mi gre vsepovsod dobro, le pri šminkah ne, jih je preveč in vedno mi je kakšna hudooo všeč, pa ... sej veš :D

  9. Meni to enostavno ne uspe ... mam kar enkaj izdelkov, ki jih ne morem uporabiti. Tudi, ko se odločim, da jih bom porabila je cela muka, ko pa imam na policah toliko izdelkov, ki jih raje uporabljam.
    Ponavadi jih potem kar nesem mami ali sestrama, da se malo boljše počutim in, da ne pristanejo v košu.
    No, good luck with that. ;)
