Use It Up! Volume I


Like anyone approaching a new year, I’ve given some thought as to what my goals are in life, and one of them is to work on finishing up some items in my beauty stash, and to be more aware of what I have and love. Here are some items I would like to use up!

1- Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash– There are so many things I love about this product. I love the scent, the texture, how it lathers, and how clean it makes my skin, but it makes me SO dry. It just sucks the moisture out of my face. I’m going to use this up, but am going to stick with my Dessert Essence tea tree wash.

2- Kat Von D Lock-n-Load Setting Spray– I like this, but it’s not my favorite. I won’t be repurchasing. Full review here.

3- Number 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray– I got this in my December Birchbox. I rarely use hairspray, yet keep getting minis in my subscription boxes. I’ve been spraying this onto a spoolie brush and using it to keep my brows in place during the day.

4- Bobbie Brown Hydrating Eye Cream– I’m almost done with this little tub, which was from a Sephora point perk. I’m planning on writing a review of it soon.


5-  Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch primer– I’m almost done with this product. I had a sample and loved it, then I bought the full size. L’Oreal has a product similar to this, only it’s not as creamy and soft. I would repurchase, but this isn’t my HG primer.

6- Pixi Flawless and Poreless primer– Another small sample from a subscription! I like this, but it isn’t amazing to me. I won’t be purchasing a full size bottle.

7- Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation Sample– I picked this sample up because so many people rave about this product. My original sample was way too light for me, so I went back for another match. I am hoping to review it after a few more uses.

8- Marc Jacobs Genius Gel Foundation Sample– Here’s another that I was really excited to try out after hearing rave reviews. I used it once, but need to go back before developing any real thoughts about it. My first impression was that I liked it!

9- Tarte EmphasEyes Inner Rim Brigthener- I have three nude eye pencils and want to get down to one. I like this pencil and just need to use it!

Are you looking to use anything up lately?

  1. This is a great idea! Especially for those who have had blogs for a while, or are just addicted makeup, you tend to build up products and before you even have a chance to really test one thing out you’ve already moved onto the next item!
    ps. New Post!

    Some lovely things to finish here – I hope you have fun! I’m trying to minimise my ridiculous product stash just in general, so I’m trying to use everything up! 😛

    I’m trying to use up some liquid foundations since I have noticed I haven’t been using them much. i don’t want to give them away since I quite like them still!
