Finish 8 by Valentine's Day Challenge

By Wednesday, January 06, 2016 , , , , , , , ,

I have so many makeup and skin care products on the go the the idea of ever finish something becomes an issue. To be 100% honest, a big issue. I start to feel like a hoarder when I have too many foundations, or lotions, or well anything on the go at once. This is why I am doing a finish by challenge. Instead of the usual 5, I'm going with 8. Why?  Well, because they are the 8 things I am close to finishing and just really want to move on from them.

1. The Body Shop Nutriganics Drops of Youth:
I love this serum, it is light and absorbs right away. It makes my skin feel fantastic. I also have at least one bottle stored away as back up. Seeing as this bottle is so low the dropper doesn't work I feel I can use it up and maybe move on to something new, or that extra bottle.

2. L'oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set - Makeup Extender Setting Spray
I love this setting spray. If you can, try it. It is just as good as some much pricer bands, but much cheaper. The bottle holds fingerprints, but  that really doesn't matter. What matters is how well it works. While I love it, there is little left and I have other sprays I need to use. So it hurts me to use it just to toss it and move on, that is what I am doing here. I will definitely repurchase once I use a few other sprays up.

3. Mac Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer
This is a primer, I've had it forever, and have a back up of it. I need to just use it up. I feel that although I've had it a long time, it really hasn't vanished from the bottle. So I am going to give using it up my best shot. If I don't make it, well it is going in the back to mac pile so I can try some new primers out and not feel bad about it.

4. Mac NC15/NW20 Chromographic Pencil:
I love nude pencils for my water line. Love them. But now I have too many and this one was my first. I am trying by best to just use it up, so I don't have 5 on the go at once. Plus I cannot find the cap for it, so really it need to get used up.

5. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude:
I have had this so long, I think I might even have a back up (and a million deluxe sample sized ones), it was the first tinted moisturizer I ever used, and I love it so much. But now I have what seems like a million TM and BB and CC hanging around, and this one needs to retired. It is really good for the winter time, so I am giving it a good go to see if I can use it up

6. Pixi Illuminating Tint & Conceal
This is a Tinted Moisturizer with a concealer on the end. While I just got it last year when Target was exiting Canada, I didn't learn until it got home that it was expiring a mere months later. So now it is expired (I am assuming the spf is useless now) and the concealer end is almost gone. It is just me and this TM left and I am going to try to just use what I can up before tossing it. I really wish Pixi put expression dates on the outside of boxes, just saying I wouldn't have bought it if I knew.

7&8 Benefit Lolli Tint and Lolli Balm:
I have these minis, but I also have another mini of the tint and a full sized balm waiting to be started. Since I love these so much I figured I could make them my signature shade for the next month and half and try to use them up so I can open the new ones. I really do love these.

That's it, hopefully I do well. I will give you updates around Valentine's Day to let you know how it all went. 

Is there anything your trying to use up right now?
