Use 10 by Christmas Eve Update 1, October 2015

Saturday, October 24, 2015

I wanted to give you an update of the Use 10 by Christmas Eve Pan challenge I'm doing with Leah and Laura. 

This challenge is running between 24th September and 24th December. I'm trying to be organised and i've taken the pictures and recorded the video the weekend before so I can have plenty of time to edit and write this post. 

1) Make up remover, Make Up Revolution Pro Cleanse & Garnier 2 in 1 make up remover

I had decided to use two part used bottles for my first item and I'm pleased to report I have used up both of these products. 

With this challenge if I finish a product I will be switching in other products. I'm not too bothered about using up the switched in items but I think it will be good to record my progress and make sure that I am using products I already own. 

The products I've switched in are Garnier Miceller cleansing water & Clean and Clear Lotion. I Like the Miceller water, I did think I'd used this up but it looks like i'd tidied it away. 

I'm not find of the clean and clear. I did like it when I bought it but now i feel it's too strong for me but there is only a little bit left so I'm confident I can get through it or most of it. 

2) Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude Foundation

I am really enjoying using this product. I'm not keen on the dropped it has inside and I still tend to wipe it all over my face as if I drop it on to the back of my hand it's dried before I can get it to my face. It dries to a powdery finish which I'm really liking at the moment. I'm roughly half way down the bottle but it's hard to measure properly. 

3) So Susan Eye brow powder

I feel like I am making some headway into this product. I am concentrating on one area but I'm ok with that. I think it looks like two eyes looking to the side! For me the most important thing is that I am getting consistent use out of this product and I've used it every time I've worn make up with the exception of once which I think is good. I really like how it looks when it's on as well. 

4) Give me shudders from the Girls on Film palette by Make up Revolution

This is the brown shade at the bottom left of the photo. I haven't made as much headway into this as I'd have liked. It is a really nice colour but I've just not been using it that much. I've been ill this month and haven't really worn make up and I think having so much choice in colours I've just not been drawn to it. I'm going to make a real effort to use it in the coming month. 

5) Maybelline The Eraser Eye in Light

I have been enjoying using this product, I always thought the light would be too light but it isn't as an under eye concealer. I do wish I'd marked the bottle last time and I need to remember to do that. 

6) Rule Breaker from Seventeen

I haven't used this as much as I'd have liked. It is such a beautiful colour, I didn't do a blog post for the introduction of this challenge as I forgot to take pictures but I've just looked back at the original video and I do think it's gone down a little bit which makes me feel a little better. 

7) Makeup Revolution Lipstick - Save me from yourself

I'm so pleased I included this as I am in love this this lipstick. It's one I dismissed for so long as I didn't think the colour would work for me but I wear it all the time. If I have to pick a downside it's the lid. Make up revolution need to work on their lid technology as the lid just won't stay on. 

I can tell I've used quite a lot of this and I will feel sad if I do use it up and would repurchase it. 

8) Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick - 07

Another product I like using. I'm not using it every day but It is getting a lot more use that it was previously and I do think it has gone down a bit. I think I did measure these products so I will have to dig out my notes.

I use this as a base shadow on my lids and it it works well as an inner corner highlight. I'm just sad that the stick came broken which for me would put me off buying more.  I'm finding it a bit unstable to use and have to have it wound up just enough. (Is there an easy and non-messy way to fix it?) 

9)  Lee Stafford De-tangler

I have been this consistently an I have used a good amount of it. I'm going to be quite lost once it's used up. I would re-purchase this again, however I would like to try something else before I do that. I need to look through my stash to see if I have another detangler or I will be asking online for recommendations. 

10) Rimmel primer lasting finish Primer

I forgot to take a picture of this one. I have since realised that I havent got another primer in my other pan challenge. I don't know why I thought that. I have been using this and I do feel like I have made progress. I am getting on with it better than I thought. I have no plans to re buy it but I've decided it isn't terrible.
