Oh goodness, let me see, I did finish up the first travel size bottle of Tarte Maracuja Oil that I think I may have gotten back in early April(?), first tub of Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream, and one Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, almost done with a tube of First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen. I think thats all?

I love the e.l.f. Mist & Set! I hate the pump, but I solved that problem by transferring it into an old MAC Fix+ Travel Size bottle and it works perfectly!

My Estée Lauder Sumptuous Bold Volume Lifting Mascara.
🙁 Sad face, because it wasn’t until I saw this question that I realized that I had completely forgotten to order a new one. Thanks for the reminder, Christine.

MAC Brule and Wedge eye shadows, UD Original Primer Potion, Benefit They’re Real mascara, Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturiser, The Body Shop Honey Bronzer (which I was devastated about!).

My morning moisturizer DECLÉOR Aroma Lisse Energising Smoothing Cream (I’ve had to look for the exact name, soooo long). I have bought a new bottle inmediately because It has changed my skin.

Marc Jacobs Omega Lash Mascara.

I received a sample size and love it. Makes my lashes long, full and feathery. Great on my bottom lashes too. I am going to pick up a full size today!

An expensive month for skincare.. ran out of three key products within 3 weeks: Skinceuticals vit C E ferulic acid serum, Koh Gen Doh spa water, IS Clinical Youth Serum and makeup wise, a MAC sculpt mascara. Picked up the replacement skinceuticals and gangly klutz arms akimbo here proceeded to knock the damn bottle over one early early morning and lost 3/4 of the new bottle.. that hurt.

I finally scraped the last of my IT CC cream out of the tube I’d cut open. I’ve got a “super-sized” replacement as well as a tube in the “Illumination” formula (I don’t like it as much – it feels a bit thicker and heavier). That’s about it (no pun intended) though I’ll soon be at the end of my Shiseido eye cream (the one with SPF) too.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso, Shea Moisture Illuminating Powder aka Bronzer in Mandalay Dusk (perfect bronzer for us chocolate girls), LA Girls Pro Concealer in Fawn, and L’Oréal Youth Code Texture Perfector Serum.

These are all Holy Grail products and I have multiple backups of all of the above!

I heard a lot of great things about Shea Moisture beauty products. I will have to try them but I do not see their makeup at my local target. I will check online. Thanks MissJae1908 🙂

Paula’s Choice Resist Super-Light Wrinkle Defense SPF 30 (all zinc-oxide sunscreen that I love for my neck and upper chest), First Aid Beauty face cleanser.

I’ve almost finished a pot of NARS Eye Paint in Porto Venere, which I’ve been using as an eyeshadow base in place of MAC Paint Pot in Painterly, so I re-ordered it. At this point in my life Painterly is beginning to emphasize texture on my lids, whereas the bit of shimmer in Porto Venere actually diffuses it a bit. On casual days I wear it by itself from lashline to eyebrows, behind my glasses, and it brightens up my eye area. Other days it locks down other eyeshadows I layer on top of it very well. A MUA at Blue Mercury tipped me off to using Porto Venere this way.

In August I’ve used, and LOVED the clinique blushes in peach pop and berry pop, the lorac pro 1 and 2 and the Lancome Juicy Tubes in Fraise . I traveled , and these were the most in handy things I was sooo very glad to have with me.

It is amazing stuff, I will never be without it. I have 3 L’Occitane shower gels in my shower at all times so it takes me a while to use the almond oil as I use the other two as well.

Anne Avatar

I wish I had the budget for the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. I have a sample size of it from the Almond pack of things they had last month, but I’m still balking at the price of a full size. But OMG it is soooooo good.

Deidre Avatar

Right now L’Occitane’s website has the HUGE bottle w/pump (500 ml) on sale. Or buy the refill size and put in a container you already have. It is so worth it as you use very little.

I think 4 lip products, two lotions, a fragrance mist, and a few shower products. Maybe some deluxe samples, too. I try to rotate out products every few weeks and concentrate on products that are older or nearly empty do I can keep my stash as uncluttered as possible!

* Lancone Artliner in black

* Another tube of NARS concealer in Chantilly

* Supergoop! mineral skin soothing sunscreen

* Sample size bottle of Algenist Advanced Anti Aging Repairing Oil (note: this stuff was beyond impressive. Wish the price for a full size bottle weren’t so much higher than other facial oils!)

I finished off a Clinique eye cream (I use the Kiehl’s avocado one so I just needed to get rid of the Clinique one), and I’ve been going through a bunch of deluxe samples trying to reduce clutter (like the Fresh Soy Cleanser thingy). I also finished off one of my two Lush cleansers which got me to the 5 empty pots mark for a free face mask. I finished a bottle of my sunscreen (and bought a backup a week prior). Some Burt’s Bee’s lip balms. Nothing new finished up in the makeup department as I can’t wear it that often now.

ABH Brow wiz..this is probably the 5th one I’ve been through this year lol
Actually, I think that’s it. I haven’t really worn a lot of makeup in August since it’s so freaken hot and humid, on top of me working and going to school, there’s just no time!

Jetske Avatar

Definitely, this is my third one! It mattifies but gives some glow at the same time, doesn’t dry out my skin or accentuate dry patches, and never looks cakey, however much you apply or re-apply. Also fab for setting undereye concealer! 🙂

Foundation: better skin, maybelline
Primer: happy light, bourjois
Serum: lacura
Hair conditioner: black malva, aveda
…and my beloved JoMalone mandarin, basil and lime fragance

Haha. I loved reading these responses, because nobody that I know uses as many products as me.
Good to see others tracking their deluxe samples too, like precious gems.

I used up my Urban Decay setting spray deluxe sample, Make Up Forever gray eyeliner, AG liter shampoo, a bottle of MoroccanOil, Palmer’s cocoa butter stick, deluxe sample of BareMinerals Stroke of Light, and deluxe sample of Ole Henriksen Red Tea cleanser.

I finished a deluxe sample of Shiseido ULTIMUNE Power Infusing Concentrate, my Clinique Liquid Facial Soap (Mild), a tube of LaVanilla Body Butter, and I finally forced myself to throw out what was left of the UD Naked Skin foundation.

Okay original night cream however I will not re-purchase it because it is not cruelty free which is a complete bummer because I absolutely loved it and it smelled so amazing!
