Wow! I have an Anastasia Dip Brow and have been using it faithfully every day for like 3 years, and I think I’m still only halfway through. Hmm, last item finished was probably a MACcompact with setting powder

Josie Maran Matchmaker Powder Foundation, and Tarte Tarteguard Spf 30 sunscreen. I just repurchased both. And my Laura Geller GlamLash mascara dried out. I need to get another one soon.

Probably my umpteenth pot of Essence Midnight In Paris Gel eyeliner! Plus, finished up the mid-size bottle of Ole Henriksen Truth Serum, and a small of the Activating Oil (rose hips oil).
Not long now before MAC Orb will be all gone, as well.

Revlon Colorstay Foundation and ColourPop Ultra Matte in Bumble. Those two are my HG and go to beauty products lately. Never thought I could finish a lipstick though, lol..

– MAC Matchmaster concealer. Weirdly enough, it has grown on me, I really did not like it at the beginning.
– Almost there with my beloved MAC Patina eyeshadow. Will probably repurchase it at some point.
– MAC bronzer in Golden.

Maybelline Brow Satin pencil. I’ve liked it because it gives me a natural brows but it doesn’t last me all day long. I don’t know if I’ll repurchased it.

I assume you are talking about the Smashbox Photo primer? I primarily use the Revlon one as an under eye brightener so I cannot speak to it as a primer. As that it brightens, doesn’t creases or make my skin oily. Love it. I tried a sample of the Smashbox. It seems to be for drier skin. It doesn’t really suit me bc I have oily skin. The Revlon one works well with my oily skin but I think it would be suitable for all skin types.

You’re talking about the Smashbox eye primer? I am almost finished with my tube and I liked it. I didn’t have to be super careful blending it near the inner corner of my eyes since it is colorless, and shadow stayed all day. But my HG is the NARS primer, which I got with my Sephora discount.

Thank you so much! I was referring to the Smashbox Hydrating Under-eye Primer. The Revlon was is supposed to be q dupe 🙂 Sorry, I wasn’t clear. I got excited! Haha “finally! Someone who has actually tried the Revlon one!” Lol

I’m not entirely sure but I am right on the cusp of finishing up my Eucerin night cream and Clinique SuperDefense day cream with SPF. I have 2 backups of the Eucerin, as I can’t get it in Canada, but have to pick up another jar of the Clinique today after school, because there is a 20X the points event but I’ll only get it if SDM has product with a long expiry date (far too often, I guess because they’re sort of “second string”, their higher end products, which don’t sell rapidly in these smaller outlets, have expiry dates that are way too soon and I’ve even brought them some products from their shelves that have already expired!).

3 Paula’s in 2 days. Resist super antiox serum, clinical body butter, and resist sldwd. Got the replacements on time. Just love that TM. It’s either tube 3 or 4. A first real commitment to a product in 40+ years.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Medium Tan. I’ve come to the realization that I really love that powder to set my face 🙂

I was surprised at how much I loved my Mineralize powder too – never expected it to become my favorite but I’m about half way through it and plan on repurchasing.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
I’m so close to finishing up my Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle though… first time I’ll have used up a lip product. 😀

The packaging on those shows 6M shelf life. Did you use it longer than that? It seemed short to me for a brow product.

I’m sure I did – I don’t personally stick to the dates as shown on packaging, but you should do whatever you are comfortable with!

Either the Almay One-Coat Get Up and Grow waterproof mascara, or NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Those are the two products in my entire routine that I go through the most and always replace. I’ve tried other types of mascara and concealer, but these ones do the best job for me!

Just last night I finished my bday sample of the Fresh Soy Cleanser. Sad day! It smells amazing, but it’s a bit pricey for me to get a full size.

As for makeup, I’m one to two uses away from FINALLY finishing my Ben Nye HD setting powder.

Mini Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara, full size Covergirl WP Clump Crusher mascara (my HG, I think I’ve been through 3 of them so far), and mini tube of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy (can’t live without when it comes to loose indie shadows). My sample baggie of Blackbird Cosmetics Magic Trick Powder in Green and WnW Fergie Eyeshadow Primer are both also nearing the end, but I’ve already ordered a full size jar of the Blackbird powder.

I have about 3-4 days left of Alaffia Everyday Coconut Face Cleanser & Dickinson’s Witch Hazel. As for actual makeup, I have hit significant pan on L’Oreal True Match Blush in Tender Rose, an old L’Oreal Visible Lift Powder I hated for face, but *love* for the undereye setting, WnW Take On The Day Mattifying Powder (already have 2 backups) and Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Radiant. I *finally* figured out how to make the concealer work for me, but as I rarely remember to use concealer, I’ll try to get through some others I have before even considering a repurchase.

I just finished Smashbox cosmetics contour pencil from their contour,bronze,and highlight pencil trio.I am also finishing up my own Anastasiabeverlyhills Dipbrowpomade and it took me forever to finish it too!!

Congrats on finishing a Dip Brow jar Christine! Every time I use it I wonder how on earth it’s possible to ever hit pan on it! lol
My last beauty product I finished was MAC Studio Careblend pressed powder. Big love for this powder, I will definitely repurchase when I’ve finished my other similar powders!

My Essence All About Matt! Setting powder. I’m like one application away from finishing another MAC Pro Longwear foundation too.

Just this week finished these 3: Cle de Peau makeup remover wipes, Biore Self-heating one minute mask, L’Oreal Superstar mascara. All on order again. 🙂

I almost finished my MAC Studio Fix before starting another. I like the thought opening a brand new compact and product.

I finish skincare a lot faster than make-up. I’ve just finished Balance Active Snake Venom Eye Cream, which I’ve gone through multiple times as I love it. I’ve also recently finished Secret Key Prestige Gold Snail Ampoule. As for make-up, I’m just about to finish Soap & Glory Retouched Pressed Powder, and finished the lightest shimmery shade in the MUA Undress Me Too palette.

Where do you get the Balance Active Snake Venom eye cream and the Secret Key Prestige Gold Snail Ampoule? Do you notice a big difference using them? I’ve heard great things about the benefits of snail slime. Lol!

I finally finished my MAC prolong wear concealer, but I don’t wear makeup everyday. I also finished my Neutrogena makeup remover wipes and my Ole Henrickson truth serum, which I’m truly bummed about, as it is so expensive. I really wish I had done the auto delivery when I ordered through QVC, since I got a great price when I ordered the last time. Lesson learned!!!

Last week, I used up an old tube of Clinique Almost Makeup! This has been discontinued for years but I forgot about it when I got into other foundations.

MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in NW10. I’ve got a new one ready! If it were a tad lighter it would be perfect. ?

I’ve actually finished quite a bit recently – Armani bronzer #1 (old formula; now it’s 100), I’m still scraping the edges of the pan but I think it’s time to give up the ghost; Armani Maestro foundation #2; Sunday Riley Luna oil (I’m completely hooked even though my husband hates the smell); Neulash growth serum; ReVive Moisturizing Renewal Cream and Gentle Purifying Gel Cleanser and finally a large box of Dr Dennis Gross Extra Strength Alpha Beta Hydroxy pads. I’m almost finished with a Fresh Black Tea Age Delay Eye Concentrate and SK-II Cellumination Cream EX. I’m either already using or ready to go with replacements for everything but the two face and one eye creams. I think I’ll be switching to the Sunday Riley Tidal water cream for day, Chantecaille Retinol+ for night and either La Mer Eye Concentrate or Armani Crema Nera eye cream. I’ve been dying to get into the Armani Crema Nera, so that’s likely what I’ll open.

I just noticed yesterday that my favorite Chanel lipstick “Julia” is pretty much gone. It’s so low that the empty barrel kinda scrapes off what I just swiped on. I may scoop out the remnants, but I need a fresh one. Julia is my permanent purse lippie.

I think it’s a pretty close tie between L’Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation, Urban Decay Perversion mascara, and Smashbox green primer.

My Milani lipsticks in Bronze Metal and Candied Toffee. Love them both and have backups.
Another beautiful brown/copper lipstick in the range is Cinnamon Spice.

Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation , MAC Studio Fix foundation. I circulate my makeup so I finished them at the same time. Also my MAC Painterly Paint Pot and just hit pan on my MAC Sheer Select Powder

Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in #3 Matte Caramel. I just finished it in time to purchase a new tube after getting down to the bottom of the tube on the old one.

On the makeup front, my MAC Russian Red lipstick, but as far as skincare goes I think it was a Nuxe eye cream. I go through those real fast, though I’m always looking for a better product.

Try the Paulas Choice eye cream. I love it, and if it doesn’t work for you (which I doubt will happen) they have an excellent return policy.

Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick – finally – took a few years. I’m also finishing a sunscreen. They last like 3 months.

Benefit Boiiing Concealer shade 02. I use it for both under eye dark circle cover AND eye shadow primer. Bulletproof holy grail. Makes even inexpensive eyeshadow stay all day. Press and hold against skin for a moment to let body warmth make the product easier to apply without pulling, and then tap it on into place.

Thanks for this tip I’ve recently finished a pot of this and also have a deluxe sample pot containing half Boing and half Eye Bright. Will try this.

A full sized pot of Benefit Boing Concealer. It was in a Project Pan. I also have a pot of Benefit Lemon Aid and Laura Geller Bronze n Brighten as part of the same Project,

I’m so spoiled I’ve never finished a product. I have an Estée Lauder shimmer blush, that was discontinued, that’s been the best match to my skin tone of of every product I’ve ever bought. I’ve hoarded it forever. I pull it out for special occasions like homecoming weekends, Christmas pics, etc.

Tom Ford’s eye shadow primer. It works wonders for covering up discoloration such as purplish or reddish tones on the upper eyelid. Comes with a powder for setting. There is only one color and at first I was afraid it was too orangy but that tint cancels out the blue-ish patches and makes the skin look young and fresh. I often just wear this and no eyeshadow as it makes the skin brighter and rested looking.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette & Nars Copacabana. I’ve had them for over 2 yrs & used them almost every day! I like to get something different when I finish a product, I’ve tried other things in between, but haven’t found anything I like better.

CVS brand Dead Sea minerals face mask (one time use packet, though there was at least another use but I hate using the rest of the sample after opening the packet, anyone else feel this way?!). just bought a full size today!

Sensai Cellular Performance wrinkle repair eye cream (that’s my 5th bottle)
Lancome Grandiose mascara (2th -“- )
Givenchy Mister Light, concealer (4th -“- )
