Hey all! It’s time to chat about the 5 products I aimed to finish this past month. Every month, I challenge myself to get through 5 products over the following 28-31 days and see how it goes. If I’m honest, most months, I am unsuccessful but I still like to do it to motivate me to use some products that need to be cleared out. That being said, I feel pretty good about December because I managed to finish two products.
Finally, I have finished up the Boots or No 7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Revitalising eye balm. I have had this for a while now and I wanted to move on to a new eye cream. This was alright but it didn’t target any of my under eye problem areas, namely, darkness. It was supposed to help dry and puffy under eyes and I don’t have a problem with that typically. Because of that, I wont be picking this up again but it was a nice product while I had it.
I also finished the e.l.f. brown eye liner. This does still have product technically but it has become chunky so I am tossing this sucker. I liked this a lot as a dark brown liner for days I wasn’t feeling black. It was very easy to apply and looks lovely through the day. It is also easy to remove and I may pick another up but for now, I don’t really need another liquid brown eye liner.
The remaining three products I have left are the Benefit Gimmie Brow in Light/Medium, the Temptu highlighter and the Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 Highlighter and concealer in 125 fair. I do feel like I am very close to finishing the Benefit Gimmie Brow but how many months have I said that? It is starting to dispense less and less product onto my brows so I will be trying to use this up through January. I am not sure whether I will pick this up again or not. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this thing.
During December, I don’t think I touched the Temptu highlighter in Pink Pearl even once because I find it doesn’t mix very well with my favourite Benefit foundation. However, in the early days of January, I have tried applying it with my fingers and find it works much better. Hopefully, I will finish this up this month as well. I have very little left in here so we shall see!
The Rimmel Match Perfection concealer I use frequently under my eyes but it takes a lot to go through a concealer! I really doubt I will finish this over even the next month or two but I will certainly try. It is a lovely concealer option but I do find you have to set it to make it stay put.
For January, I will be adding two new products to my #Finish5 rotation: the Annabelle Skinny Brow Liner in Universal Medium and the Balm Plump your Pucker lip gloss. I need to get through some lip and brow products as I am a bit overstocked and I already know I love the Annabelle brow pencil to death. I want to give the Universal Light shade a try sometime but I am going to wait until I am down a few brow pencils first.
I have had the Balm Plump your Pucker lip gloss for an embarrassingly long time and I am over half way through it now. Hopefully, in the next couple months, I will see this dwindle away so I can make room for even more lip products… I mean…
My January line up is the Benefit Gimmie brow, the Temptu Hightlighter in Pink Pearl, the Balm Plump your Pucker lip gloss, the Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer and the Annabelle Skinny Brow pencil.Wish me luck!
Til next time, ttfn x
