Finish 17 in '17

Trying another new project this year.

I'm trying to use up at least 17 products this year.

Some of them are super gimmes but others are already proving to be a little tough.

I did take these photos in the beginning of the year, so I'm just a little late posting them. But hopefully I can get updates up in a timely manner. I'm thinking monthly updates.

Also, I'm going to work harder on getting better photos now that my lights are out of storage.

So, let's start.

First we have my Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin Powder in Porcelain. I received this for free from Influenstser sometime last year. It's pretty dark on me for the winter, but I like using it mostly on my neck and chest to darken it up a bit to match my face. Then there's the Cheeky Bugger Blush from MAC x Kelly Osbourne. I LOVE this blush. I don't think I'll be able to use it up completely by the end of the year, but I just wanna see how much I can use in a year. I use it nearly everyday since the year started and it's so pretty. Also probably not a use up, but I wanna try, is Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovecraft. This is my favorite shade from KVD ever. I have it in the bullet form as well. It's just perfect. This full size isn't for sale on its own yet, but I caved and bought the giant clutch of lippies she had on sale.

 Next is this mini Kat Von D x Formula X Nail Polish in Homegirl. I hope you can see the mark on the bottle. I should have thought ahead of time to paint my nails with it before I took the photo, but whatever. It's basically a dupe for OPI Lincoln Park After Dark.
 More Kat Von D! I want to try to use up this Lock It Featherweight Primer. It's nice and light and mixes well with other primers. Again, sorry if it's hard to see the mark. And I want to use up this Lock It Tattoo Foundation in Light 44. It's even a bit dark and yellow on me, but I think it works. I just want to use this up before I buy a new bottle.
Pretty much starting fresh and new with these Fortune Cookie Soap products. The one on the left is the One C Cuticle Oil. A little goes a long long way with this so this will be a tough one. Also the Polyjuice Potion Perfume Oil. Best scent from FCS.

Next I want to see how far I can get in my Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Taupe. This gives a nice base color to my brows and I top it off with powder depending on how dark my hair is. Next is this Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in No Shame. It's a gorgeous deep purple and I want to use it more! It's hard to see but I've used it a ton. I like to add Inglot's Duraline to it to make it nice and smooth. Then there is the Sexy Mama Anti-Shine Translucent Powder by The Balm. I've had this powder for a long while so I just want to get rid of it. It is nice and does a nice job of controlling my oil, but I do find it can darken up where I apply it heavily so I lightly dust it on my face. 

Another easy one is this Erno Laszlo Cleansing Oil. I also got this from Influenster for free for testing. I've already used up the bar soap that goes along with this, but I've been lazy with really making sure my makeup is off at night. This is a nice oil that removes nearly everything. Then there's this beast. The Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Powder. I've made a good dent on this since I've been using it to bake. I don't hate this and I do like it but I just wanna get it out this year.  I know, I'm ballsy for trying to use up 3 powders.
 I want to use up this Hempz White Peppermint and Vanilla Body Lotion. It's so nice and light that I keep it in my living room mostly for my hands. IT SMELLS SO GOOD. I want to eat it.
Alright so these photos suck but here we go. I want to use up this MAC Prep & Prime Lip Base. I find this doesn't work well under ALL lip products, but most. Also I've had this Tarte Amazonian Clay Universal Lip Liner. It's pretty but not my favorite. If I wear it on it's own I don't like how it makes my lips look. And finally I'm working toward using up my Lypsyl Lip Balm. I love this stuff!

So here are swatches of some of the products. Top is natural light, bottom is flash.
L-R is KVD Foundation, Maybelline Powder, The Balm Powder, MAC Blush, KVD Lovecraft Liquid Lip, Tarte Lip Liner, ABH Dipbrow & Colourpop Gel Liner.
