I’ve been following this series on the blog Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog. Please see her original post here where she explains it all. For me, the best part of #projectmakeadent is that it’s not exclusionary. You don’t have to put yourself on a make-up ban, something that I would truly suck at. It just helps you focus on a few items so you can use your stash. I love that. I’ve been trying to do something similar by using the same products for a week at a time, but I still seem to have trouble finishing products. I would really like to finish a lippie and one foundation by the end of the summer.

Lola chose nine products so I am going to do the same. I’ve chosen the following products to focus on for the next 3 months:
Chanel Les Beiges Powder
Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick
Estee Lauder Highlighter in Shimmering Sands
Lorac Pro Palette
MAC Cork Lipliner
Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Macao
Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup Foundation
Nars Liberte Blush
NYX Desert Rose Blush

I have recently started to make a dent in the lovely Chanel Les Beiges #60. Who knows, maybe I will one day hit pan on a powder product.

Face products – These are two of my oldest foundations and it’s time to finish them off. I think I’m really close with the NARS, I haven’t seen the Estee Lauder in a few months so who knows how that is going.
|Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Garance and MAC Cork Lipliner|
I really like the creaminess and moisturizing-ness of the Guerlain lippie, and this colour is a good nude for me. And everybody and their mother has the MAC lipliner. This is a staple in my make-up stash, I’ve repurchased this multiple times and will continue to do so.

I chose a palette for eyeshadows so as to give a little variety to the endeavour.
I’ve had some of the items for a while now and it really is time to use them up and try to toss them out. Have to be honest, I’ve chosen products that are either current favs or past favs in a hope to speed things along. My hope is to do this, and minimize make-up purchases for the next 3 months; and I would like to follow this through to the end of the year. Look for updates in September and December.
The only thing I knew for definite that I did not want on the list is mascara. I regularly go through mascara every 3-4months so adding it would feel like cheating as it’s a given that I will use one up.
In case you are wondering, other beauty bloggers who are participating in the challenge are here at Rocaille Writes and here at GummyVision. What I like about these posts is how honest everyone is with their progress (or lack thereof). It’s a no pressure type of challenge, because really, it’s just make up right?
What about you, when was the last time you finished a beauty product?
Thanks for stopping by and stay blessed!
