22 in 2022: October Update

I have had more success this month, but it is only due to declutters. I find them very essential because I don’t want to hold onto makeup that I don’t like when one of my friends could be using it. I suppose that I could sell them on Glambot and I might do that with some of the items that can be sold there to recoup some money. I left off on 11/22 used up/decluttered items last month. The tally is going to go up a significant amount again and I am super excited about my progress.

We can add 6 more items to the list bringing up the total to 17/22. I just need to use up or declutter 5 more products. I’m soooo close to using some items up that I think that I can do it with two months left in the year. The BECCA was too light for my skin. ITEM cream blush didn’t blend very well. RARE BEAUTY primer had too much glitter in there for my liking. I don’t wear false lashes. The lipstick isn’t my color and the TOO FACED liquid eye shadow didn’t stand a chance against my oily lids.

With Love,

OMG! I cannot believe that I have used up so much products this year and the amount of money it all costs is insane! lol. I am so glad that I have calmed down my beauty spending and I have only been purchasing items as I need them. Sometimes, I’ll buy something extra just because.

Empties: October 2022

Another month has come and gone. My life has taken so many terms, but everything is on the up and up now. I’m even casually seeing someone without involving my son. We just instantly clicked and hit it off. I wasn’t even looking for anything. It just kinda found me. But you know what they say, when you let go of what is not meant for you, you allow what is meant for you into your life. Now, let’s ger on to what I was able to finish off in the month of October.

3 sheets of stickers, a set of covers for my EC, and 5 individual stickers. That is pretty good. I did take off 2 weeks from stickering because my life got crazy for a bit.

3 Hair care products: Conditioner, Dry Shampoo, and Scalp Scrub. I wouldn’t repurchase any of it. The Matrix I wouldn’t because I now have extensions. It was a very good conditioner. I bought a different set made for extensions from Matrix.

Miscellaneous: Mouthwash, Room Spray, Candle, Deodorant. Still on the hunt for an all-natural deodorant that doesn’t irritate my arms after a while.

Skincare: 2 packages of makeup/face wipes and 1 lip mask. It was a lazy month. lol

Oh, and this mini moisturizer. It was minty.

Makeup: Primer and Blush didn’t work out for me. The primer has glitter and the blush doesn’t blend well. Lashes – I’m giving to J to use. The lip gloss and eye shadow are being trashed bc I caught Dean sticking them up his nose. lol

These are products that I decluttered to J as I can no longer use these on my hair as I need special shampoo and conditioner. The foundation is tooooo light for me and it didn’t appear it from the bottle.

Well, that wraps up this month! What did ya’ll finish up?

I made no beauty purchases in the month of September. I did really good on my no-buy month. Now, I’ll be switching gears with toy hoarding for Christmas and my son’s 7th birthday this year! I’m so excited. I’m going to have a party and everything for him.

22 in 2022: September Update

In August, I was about to use up 8/22. By the end of September, I was able to raise that up 3 more. Now, we are at 11/22. We are halfway there with only 3 months left. lol. The Farsali primer/setting spray smelled like vinegar. I was glad to use it up. I am using another primer/setting spray from Too Faced to replace this one. The Too Faced is too sticky to be a setting spray for my preferences. I hit pan on two eyeshadows because my son dug out the eyeshadow while watching me apply it with my fingers.

11/22 is not a bad way to end this update. I’m just getting over being sick, so I’ll be able to wear makeup again soon. I never wear it when I am sick to not contaminate it. I’m looking forward to wearing more of my collection and using up more stuff. Every time I think it is the last use, it isn’t. Makeup takes FOREVER to use up it seems. lol.

Empties: September 2022

Another month is gone and I am feeling better than I ever have before. I’m getting the apartment the way that I want it to be and it is staying neat, despite having a 6-year-old. I am doing well on my own this past month and I am thriving. My son and I are falling into our new routine and our home is so peaceful now. I have space to breathe and be happy. It is so freeing to be alone and prove to yourself exactly what you are made of. I’m in a much better place than I was at the end of August. The rest of the year has so much joy and excitement to bring me. I just know it.

Stickers:

13 sheets of stickers used up sounds about right. I go through phases where I do this consistently and then a week where I just need a break. I’ve been sick, so I haven’t been stickering my planner and I miss it.

Haircare:

I am so happy to have moved through three shampoos in the past month. 4 packets equal enough for one hair mask.

Body Care:

I used up my last two bathbombs. Now, I can get more!

Makeup:

It is 1 makeup item, but I am still so proud of myself. I have really been using my makeup a ton at least 5 days a week. There are a bunch of makeup items that I am so close to finishing up. I am watching so many items go down with consistent usage. I am so ready for next year’s project pan!

Skincare:

I did pamper myself with a sheet mask this month and used my regular pack of wipes from Marshalls. I had breakouts this past month due to a new BC so I used up a packet of acne dots and had to bust a second one open.

All in all, 10 products used up is not a bad month at all.

I am doing good with using up more products in the monetary sense. I feel better that my number went down from 39 to 30. I am hoping to make more progress in September with lots of items on their last legs. I even have a couple of makeup items that could be done by the end of the month for realsies.

22 in 2022: July/August Update

I am still chugging away with one more empty accomplished. lol. 8/22 used up. I don’t think I’ll make it to 22, but I am wearing makeup 5 out of 7 days a week. I love going back to work in person. It is motivating me to take better care of myself for sure. I loved the fact that I was able to use up this cream blush. I am finding that cream products have really been my jam lately. I love doing the sunburn/sun-kissed effect across the cheeks and nose with my blush.

Empties: June

I am able to get this post up a bit earlier in the month, which I am very happy about. I did go through quite a few products in June. It was a pretty heavy empties month, but I did not use up any makeup items. I did end up with pink eye, so I didn’t use makeup for a while. I am SO CLOSE on quite a few makeup items now. I am pretty sure that I can still use up 22 products in 2022. I’m almost done with two mini lip balms, a gel blush, a powder, two setting sprays, eyebrow gel, and another mascara. That is eight products right there. I should be in a good spot soon.

It was the month of haircare and skincare. I managed to use 4 hair products this past month. It was a dry shampoo month as we finished up two bottles of it. I also managed to use up shampoo and a conditioner. I usually use up the matching shampoo before the conditioner, so I rarely use them up in sets.

So many skincare items! 4 eye masks, an eye serum, an eye cream, and a packet of facial wipes. I decluttered the two eye items when I got pink eye as those were the 2 items that I used on and around my eyes 48 hrs prior to getting pink eye symptoms. I had not used my mascara or any eye shadow or liner thankfully.

I used 2 bath bombs and they really color the water nicely! Not much of a scent, but they also don’t stain or leave your tub slippery. I would get these again. I paired them with bath salts for scent and relaxing qualities.

Three misc items. Deodorant, room spray, and a pen.

7 sheets of stickers for accountability purposes.

It is nice to see 13 beauty items leave my collection. June was a very productive month for me and I hope to keep the momentum going through July. I do know that light months usually follow heavy months, so I am not going to be disappointed if July doesn’t yield as many empties as June did.

Empties: April/May

Two months worth of empties and decluttered items. There are 39 items that would be counted towards my beauty balance. We can certainly get into the meat of this post and I can give a bit more details on the items that I have used up from the beginning of April to the end of May.

This was a self-care basket that I gave to my future sister-in-law who was going through some rough times with a loss within her family.

I forgot to include this in the above photo.

The above was a care package for my daughter, when we were still not seeing each other.

This care package was for my son’s special education teacher. She is expecting soon.

Over the past 2 months, I have used up 10 sticker sheets, which is really good for me.

I was able to use up 8 skin care products in two months, which is impressive for me.

I change out my hair brushes often, probably once every three months. I use a fair amount of product that it does gunk up, even with washing it with some mild soap. The scalp scrub broke in the shower. The Bed Head, I’ve had FOREVER and it went bad. Dry Shampoo is a staple and makes a monthly appearance.

I am so proud of myself that I was able to finish off two makeup products in 2 months. I am still behind, but I am almost finished with 2 more products. I think they will be done in the month of June. We shall see.

With Love,
