I've decided to join in the Project Make A Dent fun! This idea to make a concentrated effort to use up a selection of make-up products was started by Lola from lola's secret beauty blog (read her original post here), and so far Gummy from Gummy Vision and Joyce from Bronzer Bunny have jumped on the bandwagon.
I actually try to use a similar principle in my day to day make-up choices; I usually single out specific items to use up and supplement them with other fun varying bits from my collection to avoid make-up boredom. So I've been slowly but surely making a dent in some of these products you see here at least since last year - but still I'd like to monitor my progress more and maybe finally have the satisfaction of completely using up some of these. I've linked my reviews for the products where possible if you'd like to read more about them.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum left to use up; if I succeed at that in a reasonable amount of time, I'll probably replace it with Face Atelier Ultra Foundation as my next denting victim. I've also selected two blushes, NYX Powder Blush in Angel and NYC Blushable Creme Stick in Plaza Pink, and I'm already feeling a bit worried at how well I'll be able to focus on using them up without completely ignoring my sizeable blusher stash, but hey - it's supposed to be a challenge!
I'd also like to finally use up my Annabelle Smudge Liner in Rich Chocolate; you can see I already have a small stub left, but I've been trying to finish it for a very long time now. Moreover, I want to see how fast I'll be able to hit pan on Annabelle's Eyeshadow in Vanilla Chilla, which now has a nice dip on the side.
Rimmel Moisture Renew in Soft Coral and NYX Round Lipstick in Tea Rose. With both of these, I quite like the shades but dislike the formula; Soft Coral has significant amounts of gritty silver glitters, while Tea Rose covers the lips unevenly, sinking into vertical lines.
All of the products I selected for my Project Make A Dent are older items from my collection that don't get much love anymore, but should be finished so I can move onto newer, better formulas - I guess the perspective of getting brand new pretties is my carrot in this case. I'm giving myself a full year for this project, and I plan to update you on my progress quaterly. Do you have items in your collection that you'd like to finally use up? Join us in the Project Make A Dent fun so we can cheer each other on!
