my MAC studio fix foundation. Totally need some more, but I chose Stereo Rose over Studio Fix today (yup, I have my priorities straight). 🙂

I have two things. My VS Beauty Rush lipgloss in Cantaloopy, and a JK Jemma Kidd e/s in Vintage. 🙂 Love them both and I did re-purchase both.

Nyx jumbo pencil in milk,
also a mac studio sculpt concealer..
finished at about the same time..

mac mineralized skin finish natural, and i had a back up cause i knew it was almost gone, love that stuff!

Dior Diorshow Iconic Mascara in black and yes, I repurchased it. It’s a good every day mascara for my deep set eyes.

Bobbi Brown corrector and I bought another but in a slightly different shade. 2nd is MUFE Lift concealer which I also re-purchased. (I’d give up mascara before my concealer/corrector!)

I finished my studio tech foundation and of course that was replaced cant go out with out my face on LOL. Mac blush in color buff but that I havent replaced have so many blushes to choose from right now

My Milani Liquif’eye eyeliner! 😀 I love the stuff and when I first swatched it and hadn’t even used it on my eyes to tip feel of so I lost half the product, so with about 2 uses its all gone 🙁 six bucks for nothing…It was great while it lasted though! 😀 You did a review on those and thats why i bought em’!

Oh dear, how did you manage to use up a whole eyeliner in only two uses? Maybe I’m just confused, haha.

By “tip” you must mean more than just the lil bit of product at the end I guess, did the pencil itself crack in half or something? If so, very sad. I love the Aqua shade in those, SO intense and long lasting. 🙂

mac msf natural. Its what I use as my foundation cus I don’t like much coverage normally.

I finished saddle eyeshadow by MAC and already repurchased it. and the last beauty products I finished was by Estee Lauder advanced night repair and hydrationist moisture cream, but I stop using them months ago and moved on to something else, not that I didn’t like it but It became very expensive I was going through that product like every month I had to re-buy

MAC Slimshine in Scant – I hate that the product has been discontinued! Good thing I have 2 back-ups and plan to buy more (like 10 more!)

MAC Eye Brows in Lingering…won’t be repurchasing as I’ve gotten used to eyeshadows for my brows now.

Last beauty product I finished was the Clinique Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector. I did not repurchase it because I don’t think it really did much unfortunately. 🙁 The upside was that it didn’t break me out or anything and it was getting this product that made me also start doing a full skincare routine religiously morning and night :).

Last make up product I finished was MAC Dazzleglass in Smile (one of my fave lipglosses) and I did repurchase it using a Back2MAC.

MAC Prep + Prime lotion. I did repurchase & went with the SPF 50 instead of using a seperate sunscreen. Love it!

Boots Original Beauty Formula Vanishing day cream. I love it so much. It seems to be discontinued though.

I’m also about to finish Sonia Kashuk blush in Flamingo. For a drugstore blush it is wonderful. Yes, I will repurchase this.

my MAC tendertone in Sweet Tooth. I reapplied that stuff like no other! I LOVED it! I was so sad wen it ran out so I got another one at my local CCO except they switched up my color and I got Take a Hint instead but its still a very pretty color 🙂

Bare Minerals foundation and Maybelline Colossal Mascara. Both I have bought again.
Beauty product wise was a Clinique toner which I also repurchased.

Ugh! Everything I own is running out at the same time! Clinique Liquid Facial Soap in mild AND my toner, my Studio Fix Sheer Pressed Powder, anddddd my Coconut Lime Verbanea (sp?) lotion from Bath and Body works ='[

Lots of MUFE Aqua Eyes eyeliners… so creamy, and so enjoyable to use except I end up sharpening a full one out in a month.

Make up For Ever HD Primer in green which didn’t to anything on my face. I got a new one in blue and it is much better. Love it!!!

well i am ALMOST out of studio sculpt concealer but i will not be repurchasing, im getting studio finish instead, and speaking of, it should be arriving tomorrow!

i finished a lot in the last two weeks!!: MAC studio finish concealer, MAC mineralize satinfinish foundation, MAC print eyeshadow, MAC MSF natural, Clinique superbalanced foundation

i only repurchased the print eyeshadow and Clinique’s superbalanced foundation.. it’s my HG foundation!!

Christine, I have a question that is off topic lol. I was looking at your LE palette’s and I saw two shadows that look really nice.

Limo and Til’ Daybreak.

I was wondering if you know of any dupes? Especially limo! I did check the dupe list but they weren’t on there.

Thanks in advance!

I finishes MAC Select fluid foundation and now I use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish natural as foundation, then I finishes MAC fluidline in Blacktrack and I bought MAybelline Black Gel eyeliner 😉

revlon colourstay
i have so many foundations to work through, because unlike most of you guys i’m an anti-collector, in that i dont like having anything just sitting around, i like moving through everything

i agree.. if there are eyeshadows which i don’t use often.. i don’t care..
but i don’t like to have more than one or two foundations, concealers, powders and stuff.. i alway think it’s a waste of money if i buy things which i only use rarely!

Maybelline Great Lash yesterday, after about a month I find mascaras get too dry to work with which is why I only buy cheap ones! Other than that, I’m almost out of MSFN in Light Medium, but now it’s summer I’m back to Medium Plus so I won’t need to get a new one til October-ish.

CO bigelow tinted lip balm in poppy pink, I’m so sad its been discontinued, and I don’t have a back-up. 🙁 Also my MAC high tea. Fortunately i have lots of back ups for that one. 😀

My Cover Girl Fantastic Lash, I kept trying to get every little bit out of it that I could because it’s been discontinued, quite awhile ago. I really liked that mascara for an everyday look, lots of definition, no clumping and held a curl. Sad that it’s gone.

Givenchy Photo’Perfexion Fluid Foundation in 03 Perfect Sand. I wanted to buy a new one because I thought it was very good, but of some reason they removed that shade, and they don’t sell Givenchy IRL in my country.
I’m thinking about ordering either perfect vanilla or perfect ivory, anyone knows if either of them is comparable to perfect sand?

Isn’t it just terrible?! I don’t think I’ve ever actually finished a single makeup item. Moisturisers, cleansers, lip balms and scrubs yes, but makeup… Not a single thing comes to mind!

I am just about to finish my Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Mauvellous, my favorite color!

I’m quite excited about this post (I know, I need to get a life, lol) because I’ve actually finished a few products lately! 😀 Skincare-wise I’ve finished my 15 ml sample of Dior HyrActive day cream, and about to finish my Siana night cream. I have other daycreams, but needed a night cream and just bought a Nivea Visage Q10. Make up wise I’ve finished my Rimmel translucent loose powder and bought a 17 (Boots’ own brand) one instead. There are a few other things, masks, scrubs, primers that I’m due to finish soon, but I don’t normally finish make up other than face powder / foundation as I have so much.

I just finished MAC Dazzlelight e/s, MAC Angel l/s and my Cargo bronzer. I will only be repurchasing Dazzlelight because I want to try a different lipstick. I finish lipglosses at an astounding rate, so I have no idea which they were. I back to mac’d a couple recently. Also, I’m probably not going to buy any more MAC lipglosses. I think I’ve graduated to Chanel. oh dear.

Lancome Defencils mascara, repurchased along with the new precious cells mascara,finised schsheido (?) toner last night and have Nars waiting to be opened!

My Philosphy The Present primer and my Smashbox Fusion Soft Lights bronzer were recently finished this week, I’ll be going back for more primer but I prefer to try out different bronzers.

Maybelline Full n Soft Mascara was the last product I finished and yes, I purchased it again….3 of them as a matter of fact. I also just re-purchased Lancome Bi-Facil.

-my rimmel maxx volume flash mascara
-my mac feline eyeliner
and brule eyeshadow is getting very close!!

I think it was… MAC Select Cover Up Concealer, but I must say I rarely finish a product LOL!

My foundation. Chanel Pro Lumiere! I repurchased it, used it a few times, and then discovered a much better foundation…Guerlain Parure Extreme. So now I have another full bottle of it just sitting there. Oh the joys of buying makeup….LOL.

I just finished a Stila lipglaze in Brown Sugar, actually! I’m so proud of myself, because I got a gift set of 6 Stila glosses over a year ago, and I’m down to 4 now!

I finished my MAC Studio Finish concealer not too long ago, and i already had purchased the backup 2 months prior to it being finished.
I cannot go without it.

It was the See thru Lip colour “Loving touch” from the Rose Romance Collection. I really loved that thing. Perfect to wear for me when i was teaching 3 hours in a row and wanted a nice colour without worrying about in wander off my lips.

Face product was Cetaphil face wash last night.

In the process of killing MAC Stars N Rockets eyeshadow. MAC Nylon is running low too. MAC Sweetie, and Wet N Wild MEgaplump gloss are the only lip products I’ve actually run out of.

Mac MSFN in light – an absolute staple in my routine, UDPP ( have switched back to my beloved shadow insurance now, forgot how much more i love it than UDPP), MAC lustreglass in Love Nectar (need to repurchase this, it’s such a gorgeous colour).

Revlon Colorstay foundation. I will not be repurchasing. I didn’t hate it – it’s not bad for the money – but there are other foundations I’d rather spend my money on.

Maybelline Shine Seduction lipgloss in Nude Glow – finished like 5 tubes of this already
Smashbox Photofinish Light primer
Laura Mercier oil free primer

I ran out of MAC Painterly paint pot about a month ago and immediately replaced it! Before that it was MAC Warming Trend eyeshadow (I was lucky enough to find one at a CCO when I was almost out, probably should have bought a couple of them lol). Now Brule and Twillery (from the Inventive Eyes quad) eyeshadows are quickly running out. I can always get more Brule, but Twillery is gone forever 🙁

The last beauty product I finished was the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer tinted moisturizer. I did not repurchase it, only because I wanted to try something with more coverage. Otherwise, I think it is good for the summer, because it wasn’t moisturizing enough for me during the winter.

Fix+, yes. Repurchased even before it ran out. 🙂 Used to hate it at first and thought it was a pointless product, but started using it more and more to the point where I need it.

my mac zoomlash mascara i looooooooooovveeee it and i agree to u christine that mac mascara’s are never being accepted well but they are worth trying
looking for plushlash on my next visit to mac…

Marcelle True Radiance Foundation. I’m not repurchasing, I’ve moved on to Revlon, and I prefer it. Foundation and concealer are the only two types of makeup I’ve ever finished really. And well of course mascara, but just because I trash those every few months. Not quite every 3, but I’m working on it.

Only a whole bunch of makeup removers and miscellaneous skin care products as I am diligently ‘shopping my stash’.

I am however, very close to finally finishing the Revlon blush I got quite some time ago (Peachy Keen in those square containers…whatever that was).
