I don’t; if you don’t use it, what’s the point? If you’re not using it, then its purpose has to be something other than just sitting in a drawer — it should be displayed or used in some other way. I’ve learned over the years that there’s always another product that’ll catch my fancy, so even if I eventually use something up and can’t replace it exactly, there are so many awesome shades that I want to use that maybe it’s just time to move on!

Since I test without primer, I’m really used to NOT using it or relying on it, but I’m inside most of the day, and my coworker is my husband, so looking 100% polished from 6AM to 10PM isn’t necessary either. I think using primers is a good step for ensuring the canvas you start with is smoother, takes makeup better, and does typically help improve longevity (especially fading and some breakup of foundation).

For staple products, like brow gel, mascara, moisturizer, and the like, I’ll purchase a backup if I’m running low (and intend to keep using it) or if there’s a particularly good sale. I try not to buy too many backups of products in general, and when I do, I try to limit it to just one (unless it’s something I go through VERY quickly!). I’m very, very selective about purchasing backups of limited edition products – like maybe one or two a year.
