Just a reminder, this project ends on September 22nd.
Okay, so on the last update I finished 5 products and I need to use up 9 more to call this project a success. I still feel like this is a reachable goal and if I had to guess, I think I’ve used up another 4 or 5 products. I feel like that sounds right but it could be more like 2. I don’t remember exactly what I used up except for 2 products. It could be that 5 other ones are on their last legs. I cannot remember for the life of me. I feel like the results of this post is going to remotivate me to finish up as much as I can by the end of this project.
Last month, I had 14 products in the project and at this update I still have 14 products. I did add 5 more products to the project though. Wondering my progress and what I used up? Then, keep reading. I am not mentioning anything that I used up at the previous update, so if you want to hear about those, go back and read that update.
Roloxin Lift Instant Skin Smoothing Masque
I still have yet to touch these. I think I will use one on Sunday. I currently have a pimple on my forehead, so I don’t want to irritate it. Once it’s gone, I will use up one of these packets. I have four masks, so my goal is to use up at least 1 every week.
Medicell Eye Mask Duo
I am thinking about using these today, since I don’t feel good enough to wear makeup and that pimple. I don’t know what’s up with me. I’ve felt sick off and on this week. Dean and I have been using the pool every weekend so I haven’t worn eye shadow and other makeup in like a month. lol. So no, update on my pallet this month.
MJCARE Snail Essence Mask
I’m scared, I’m scared, I’m scared. I need to just bite the bullet and try it. If it’s disgusting, I’ll just throw it out. Gawd Hannah, grow up!
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
I used this up and I’m not a huge fan of this. A little goes a long way, but I feel that it’s no different from the original, except it’s not a dry oil. I would not purchase this, but I would buy the original again.
Model Co Lip Lacquer in Viva
I used up this gloss and I ended up really liking it. I wouldn’t go out and purchase it. I would gladly use it if I got it again though. I brought in a few replacement lip products to replace it. I cannot believe that I seem to be flying through these.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in K-Dub
No visible progress on this one. I’ve been using it whenever and I have no intention of using this up. I just wanted to be able to use it freely without interfering with using up other lip products and it hasn’t interfered at all.
Elizabeth Mott Smooth Shadow in Pearl
I’ve only sharpened this up 1 or 2 times, since I haven’t really been using makeup all that much. I’ve been spending a lot of time in the pool with Dean. I don’t want to worry about wearing makeup in the pool. I’ll probably end up putting this in another project. I don’t think I’ll be able to use this up.
B&BW White Citrus Eau De Perfume
I’m making steady progress with this perfume, but I don’t think I’ll be able to use it up in a month. I’ll try to use it up next summer for sure. I really love the scent, but it doesn’t last. Within an hour, it is gone. Maybe, I’ll try to use it up as a bathroom freshener.
Davines Natural Tech Replumping Hair Filler Superactive
I have completely used this up and I will be replacing it with a different product in this project. This was alright, but it didn’t give me volume. I’m happy to have another mini hair product out of my collection. These minis really pile up and I’m try to go through a couple of full sized hair products right now. Next year, I need to focus on my hair products, which the pile is getting too much. I also have a huge skin care pile right now.
Hang Ten Dark Tanning Oil SPF 8
I am almost done with this after forgetting about it for a month. I am sure that this will be gone by the next update, since I have been using the pool every weekend. It is very quick to cover my body and head out the door. It is also water resistant which is a plus.
Jane Iredale Just Kissed Ph Changing Orange Lip Balm
I only have a couple of uses left, so I will call it done for this update since it will be in my August empties. I really liked this balms, but I would not purchase them. They are just okay and I don’t really use balms except at night. I’ve already found my dream balm.
I am almost done with this guy. I’ve been applying it every work day and it gives a strong glow to the cheeks while still keeping it work appropriate. My company’s policy is really loose though. You can have purple hair and no one would bat an eye lash.
I’m bringing in four replacement items. Three lip products and a backup highlighter. Why 3 lip products, you ask? Because two of them are so mini, I think they might only have about 2 weeks worth of products each at most. I cannot find the photo of the highlighter, but I am also throwing in a spray in hair replacement. I’ll update you guys on the progress in my finale and you’ll know exactly what these products are. I felt like the post is getting VERY long.
So, I finished up 4 during this update bringing up the total to 9 items used up. I just have to use up 5 more to call this project a success. I can do this! With the face masks that would be four and a lip product would make it 5. I’m going to see if I can finish up more!

I don’t think that snail mask is actually going to be a weird color or smell like snails or anything. Lol. But way to go! I’ve made quite a bit of progress on mine myself, more on some items than others. I’ve barely touched the makeup items I added but have finished off several other things.
Lol. I’m scared it will. Lol. Way to go. It’s almost September, so Ill get to see your progress. Reminds me, I need to use that bath bomb you gave me. I’ve been saving it for when I can take a nice long bath. Ill make time this week and use one of the masks.
i think i took only one bath this month, but i could take another this week. yep, the first is friday. it went fast!
LOL. Soon. it will be weekly bath weather and sweater weather.
No thanks! Lol. I mostly haven’t taken baths because I haven’t felt like taking the extra time, not the weather. If it’s super hot I would just make the water cooler instead.
Lol. I’m looking forward to hot chocolate by my fake fireplace and watching a Hallmark Christmas movie.
That will be nice! I don’t know anyone who watches as many hallmark movies as you do! Lol
lol. I’m an addict for a love story. I need to restart doing movie reviews again and book reviews as well. Now that I have the time to read and watch tv that is. I’m finishing up the third shopaholic book then all your comics.
I’m definitely going to start doing more movie reviews once I am done with my break. I’ve been to the movies a few more times this summer, plus I’ve watched some on DVD. I know there was a new hallmark movie I wanted to see, summer on the vineyard or something, but it’s not on DVD yet,
Summer at the Vineyard which is the sequel to Autumn at the Vineyard. They were both great.
Good to know that it is a sequel! I didn’t know.
Yup. It is. I liked the first one more but the second isn’t bad either.
good to know. usually the sequel Isn’t as good as the first.
