Use 16 in 16 Update 1- February 2016Sunday, February 14, 2016
At the end of the Vlog for my Use 16 in 16 I've included the following pictures, however I didn't think about the picture size and where the captions were places so half of them have been cut off.
I thought if I dropped them into a blog post they'd be here for people to come and have a proper look to see if they could see any progress.
I don't really feel like I've had a great deal of progress, but I'm trying to remember that this is a year long project and not my usually 3 or 4 month challenge that I've been doing before.
1: Makeup Revolution Lipstick - Save me from yourself
This was a carry over from a precious project as I really felt like I could use it up quickly but I've misplaced it. Hopefully it will turn up before too long but I think if it's not found by the next update I'll substitute in another product. I do really like this product. The lid won't stay on so It's not a product take out with me but I'm sad that I can't find it.
2: Collection Lipgloss
From the pictures you can't really see much difference and being honest, I've only used it a few times. Mainly because I've been leaving it to settle and try and work out how much is in the tube. Since filming the video and taking the pictures I've stood it in warm water to get a true level and it is really near the top so this month I'm going to work on this product and see if I can get some good progress
3: REN Lipbalm
I felt think this product hadn't changed for weeks then all of a sudden it went down a bit. I'm not overly struck on this. The texture is a lot like a runny Vaseline. I don't find it very moisturising but I don't hate it. I think this will be one I change my mind on as the year progresses.
4: Revlon Balm - Honey
I probably should have looking at the original pictures before I took the updates to try and get some consistent images. I don't think the picture show's much progress but I've used this most days. My problem is I forget to reapply. That's something I'm going to try and remember to do. I'm not getting bored of this yet which is always a good sign.
5: Revlon Lip Butter - Candy Apple
As far as progress goes, I think this is the one I'm the most happy with. I didn't expect to use this as much as I did. It's a lovely soft formula which makes it go quicker and it's easy to wear during the day as it's so sheer but It can be built up for night time. I liked this so much I've bought 2 more of them so I need to work on this so I can enjoy the other ones.
6: Lush No Drought - Dry Shampoo
Apologies for the picture quality, I didn't realise how bad it was until I uploaded it. I also didn't take an intro picture. I have used this but when I went to mark my progress it was higher than where I marked for the intro.
7: So Susan Eyebrow powder
There is progress on this product, I do feel like I'm getting a bit bored of this, but when I don't use it I miss it.
8: Rimmel Scandaleyes - Gossip Green
I've tried to use this at least once a week, but it really isn't a colour for me. I'm trying to use it as eyeliner mixed with my normal eyeliner but it's a bit too soft for that. I'm going to keep it in for now but I think I should just declutter it but not just yet.
9: Essesnce Shadow pencil - Cute Copper
I'm not sure the picture shows the progress and I think I've use this quite a bit, but I feel like I've used it more since I filmed the update.
I really like this as an all over shadow and it's working well for work, the lead is broken and you can feel it moving as it applies which is a bit of an odd feeling but while it still sharpens i'm going to carry on using it.
10: Maybelline Eye Eraser Concealer - Light
Another product where I feel like you can see some progress. I really like this product. I like how it applies and how it feels. Still enjoying using it and I don't think it will be long before I've used it up.
11: Benefit Bad Gal Eyeliner
Initially this irritated my eyes when I tried to use it to tight line but now it's been sharpened a couple of times it's not bothering me any more so I think it must have been how dry the product was. This does transfer a lot but as long as you blend it's not bad. It used to be an all time favourite but now I don't think I'd re-purchase it.
12: Essence Stay Matte Powder
I've said before I'd happily get rid of all my other powders and use this one forever but now i'm getting a bit bored of it. It still works really well but because it's been in a few project pans i'm sick of seeing it.
13: Essence Blush - Babydoll
I'm happy with the progress on this one, again I'm geting a bit bored of this now. It's been in use for quite some time now and I think I need to put it to one side for a little while.
14: Benefit Bronzer - Hoola
Despite using this a lot this month I see no progress. I either need to get a better way of measuring this or better ways to use it to try and see some progress.
15: Essence Quattro To Die For
I can see the progress on this product. It's mainly in the nude colour but I have been using the white colour to layer over the darker colour and i'm confident I can hit pan on all 4 shades by the end of the year.
16: Benefit High Beam
Lets not even talk about this one! I think I should just declutter it!!!
