2015 is the year of streamlining for Becoming Sleek. I have a lot of products that I have not been paying attention to, even though I have mentioned loving them in this blog. I intend to use at least one of these items in all my FOTDs, whether documented or not. That’s right: every time I’ll be putting on makeup I’ll be using at least one of these.
Let’s start with the base makeup.
The Colour Collection Age Defying BB Cream has been one of my favorite BB creams for a while, but I kinda forgot about it when I binned it. Likewise with the Revlon Photoready BB Cream. Now that it’s not really hot yet, I can use these up and hopefully will hit pan on them soon. I added the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Loose Powder to mattify my face after applying the BB creams. The two Beauty Republic BB cream samplers are what I got from the Flawless Beauty Glamourbox, and I wanted to use them up soon.
I only put one each of eyeshadow palette and blush. The eye palette is one of the Ellefar Princess Chiffon Eyeshadows that I used to love. They are pretty sparkly and not so very apt for everyday use, but I’m putting it in rotation to use it up; maybe in conjuction with some of my matte shadows so it’s not so sparklingly obvious. The blush is one of the first ones I bought, the Ever Bilena Blush in Baby Pink. Even though it’s years old, it’s still good and there’s no funky smell or texture evident. Even so, I’d like to hit pan on this asap.
Here are two of my older mascaras that are still good. The Fairydrops Platinum Mascara is the best waterproof mascara I have, but it’s coming to the end of its life so I’m fast-tracking its use. Same goes for the Pixy Waterproof Mascara, although this is newer by a few months.
Lastly the lipsticks set. I have a lot of lipsticks and I’d like to whittle down that number (so I can make room for more!!). On top of the list (and photo) is Colour Collection Ultimate Wear Lipstick in Bellissima. I really love this shade and it’s already getting a lot of attention, but I’m putting it in major rotation to finish it up quicker. In fact, along with Pixy Silky Fit Lipstick in Autumn Apricot (bottom right) these two are now bag mainstays. I also put into rotation the Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Tinted Taupe (bottom left) and Snoe Rouge Deluxe in Mauve Movement (bottom middle), two lipsticks that I really like but are not getting much attention because they’re binned.
For me to remember to use one of the above every time I put on makeup, I put them all in this nice Pixy tub for easy access. Now it’s much easier to make myself pick at least one item in this tub whenever I fix myself up in the mornings.
Are you on a project pan too? What items are you trying to use up?
