What I’ve managed to cross off my list:
Maybelline Master Prime 300 Redness + Blur Control Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Foundation Tarteist Contour Palette (mostly used, then expired) Laura Mercier Eye Primer Mini UD Naked 3 Palette (half used, then expired) Bare Minerals Mascara Mini ABH Brow Pencil L’Oreal Infallible Setting Spray
- Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Concealer
- Sephora Brand Bronzer
- Becca Luminous Blush in Brushed Copper
- Rituel de Fille Ghost Light Luminizer
- Hourglass Ambient Lighting Mood Light
- Essence Make Me Brow
All in all, I’m making progress. I’ve had a couple of duds, but a couple of products have grown on me. I wasn’t the hugest fan of the Rainforest of the Sea concealer for awhile, but I’m beginning to like it again.
Outside of my goal project pan products, I’ve always used up these in the past week or so:
I don’t mind the Infallible setting spray, but the spray on it is a bit aggressive and can leave your face quite wet if you’re not careful. Young Living, as we all know, is trash, and I’m getting close to using up all of my old products of theirs. I think I’ve got about four bottles of essential oils left from them, and then I should be good. I recently learned a lot of terrifying information about the founder of YL that includes everything from false medical practices to drowned babies, and if even half of it is true, then I am even more embarrassed for having supported this company in any way. I adore how fluffy and smooth the OleHenriksen Transform Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer is! I nearly bought it to use as a night moisturizer today, but I opted for a product from my workplace instead (gotta love work discounts!). The Clinique pep-start sample moisturizer was pretty good, but Clinique does unfortunately test on animals so I avoid buying from them. The Biophora Light Hydration Serum was pretty decent, and I had no complaints! It didn’t really stand out to me, but it definitely got the job done.
Today I caved did a bit of Boxing Day shopping, but after today I think that’s it for makeup shopping until 2019. I’m excited and terrified to see how long I can last in a year-long no buy and how it will change my perspective on what I currently own, my social media consumption, my bank balance, and even my conversations with makeup-loving friends.
