EMPTIES + REVIEW // After 14 months of semi-regular use, I finished the @marcbeauty
LIP LOCK MOISTURE BALM. It's a lovely and luxurious lip balm that's not too slippery and not too dry - It's perfect for applying when you do your makeup, because it sinks in quickly and has a very faint, neutral scent. The packaging is beautiful as well, and I recommend it to anyone wanting to splurge on something that you'll use every day. I personally won't be repurchasing it because it contains chemical sunscreen, which breaks me out. However, if you're not sensitive to that ingredient, then I think it's really nice and worth treating yourself to once in awhile! • Products used: 18
Love the Lash Princess mascara - will definitely repurchase once I work through some of y other mascaras.
It Cosmetics liners - finished 2 and has to throw away the 3rd because it was rubberized and completely unusable. Good eyeliner, but won’t repurchase because there are a ton of more cost-effective black eyeliner on the market that work just as well.

-Amorepacific Vintage Extract Essence sample - $8.33
-Sephora Instant Moisture 2x - $3.32

Another empty today - my Kiehl’s Super Multi Corrective Cream which I LOVE. It’s SUPER rich and really not for oily skin types at all but it just feels so beautiful on the skin. It was worth $62 towards my #ReverseRouge
total and when I added it on I realised my formula hadn’t pulled down and had missed a few boxes so the total of products I have used in February is now actually $347.94 - so I’m much further over the $1000 mark than I gave myself credit for - I’m now at $1114.12 worth of product used in 2018. I think I’ll easily finish my micellar water and toner from my 15 in February #ProjectPan
as well so I should actually be past the $1200 mark by the end of February; and I’ll also be taking bath products away with me on holiday this week that will add a few $$s to the total, rally pleased with the progress so far! 💕

SKINCARE EMPTIES. I was concerned when I saw how much Medik8 I used but then I remembered that old proverb “if it’s giving you the best skin of your life, don’t stop...” 😏😬
👉🏼 Medik8 R-Retinoate - I didn’t think retinoids were for me but now I won’t be without them. This massively improves skin texture and appearance without irritating or drying it out.
👉🏼 Medik8 Hydr8 Night - I love the non-greasy formula, mega-hydrating formula & it absorbs quickly. 👉🏼 Time Bomb Coconut Cleansing Oil - Smells incredible, melts makeup away & leaves skin feeling next level. 👉🏼 Niod Multi-Molecular Hyaluronic Complex - one of my faves. I notice a real difference between cheap & expensive HA. 👉🏼 Clinique Moisture Surge Hydrating Supercharged Consentrate - probs my fave skincare product from Clinique. Really cooling, I used if a lot on holiday last year.
👉🏼 Medik8 Hydr8 Day 360 - Primarily an SPF, it’s also hydrating, has antipollution and antioxidant benefits, isn’t greasy and sits well under makeup. Highly recommend!
👉🏼 Medik8 C-Tetra - I took this mini home wat Christmas and it was nice. Think I prefer a serum formula but would use again. 👉🏼 REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA tonic - I never found an acid I liked until thi. It’s azaelic and lactic so better for sensitive skin, I noticed a huge difference. Need to get another!
👉🏼 Medik8 Pore Cleanse Gel - lovely cleanser that smells of oranges, doesn’t leave skin feeling tight or dry and gets rid of makeup. Could proba skip the oil cleanse and use on its own tbh. 👉🏼 Dermaologica Precleanse - took a while to like this but by the end I did. Easily melts away makeup, leaves skin feeling refreshed. 👉🏼 NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum - not 100% sure of copper’s benefits but think it keeps skin in a constant state of repair. Always wait 30 seconds before using acid though otherwise it breaks down the coppery goodness.
👉🏼 Medik8 Hydr8 B5 - my other fave HA. BUT since I ran out I haven’t had any HA in my routine and surprisingly I’m not missing it...
👉🏼 NIOD Fractionated Eye Contour Concentrate - Too small to notice a difference but enjoyable to use 🤷🏻♀️ #instaskincare #skincareroutine #useitup
24-27. The CoverFx Natural foundation sample was a good shade match. I liked the way the foundation looked on my skin but it was heavy and it also had a weird scent; almost like self tanner. I wouldn’t spend $42 on it. This is the second sample of the Becca foundation I’ve tried and i just don’t like it. It’s not that great of coverage in my opinion. The Ulta makeup remover pads burned the crap outta my eyes. I noticed they’re now discontinued but even if they weren’t i wouldn’t repurchase. I loved the juicy couture perfume in viva la juicy but as usual it’s not a cruelty free brand 😕 #empties #beautytrash #beautyempties #februaryempties #useitup
Used up my first ever package of whitestrips! Man, did my teeth ever need it 😂 I drink about three cups of black coffee per day at work, and I LOVE red wine. This stuff worked pretty well! My smile is definitely much brighter and less yellow. Obviously it doesnt get rid of every stain, but it did help boost my confidence greatly! I’d repurchase 👍🏻 #whitestrips #crest #useitup #projectpan #beauty #smile #panningcommunity

Look what i finished today 😍
I'm not that fond of cooking but I DO love baking. Made some Bara Brith in an attempt to use up what's in our kitchen cupboards before we move house. I used to make Bara Brith quite regularly and it's always a bit of a gamble how it turns out but this be turned out really well. Good distribution of fruit, fluffy texture, not dry and a little bit of a crust on top. Yum yum

I have finished two products 😃 I finished the urban decay setting spray and the body shop primer :) i feel like I made a lot progress this month on most of the products. The Chanel powder, the rituals shadows and make up store highlighter is the least used products this month. However, like I said I feel like I’ve made a lot of progress on the other products and my goals for next month are pretty ambitious lol.. I want to finish the body shop foundation, Mac concealer and the urban decay eye primer 😅 we will see if I manage to finish all of these in a month but I’ll really try my best! The Miley lipglass I’ve used like 15 times but the progress is so slow 😩 it’s stressing me out a little. Right now I feel like there are 5 products that will be the very hardest for me to finish in a year but we will see.
So, after what feels like hundreds of revival attempts, I’m giving up on Just Fur Fun and decluttering it. I’m sad because I wanted to use it up rather than throw it away but it’s just become too much effort. I can soften it with oil/setting spray but then it dries up again within a couple of days before I’ve had chance to use any significant amount. I do like the colour but I’ve grown to resent it this last month. So rather than struggle on I’m swapping it for my Amaze super shock shadow. Just Fur Fun was a part of my #finish18in2018
project but I’m not counting it as done (because I haven’t finished it) instead I’m going to count Amaze as one of my 18 products to finish 😊😊

Found the frames I’ve been dreaming of ✨ @auburnhoops
! Supporting little makers with awesome talent is always the way!! 🤜🏻🤛🏻 ❤️
1. Clinique eyebrow pencil in Soft Brown - first makeup empty of the year 👏🏼 I loved the color, it was a perfect match, but the pencil kept breaking off and it was super difficult to twist up. Would repurchase if I couldn't find anything better.
2. L'Oreal Purifying clay mask - I own the entire L'Oreal mask range 🙈 and out of those 5, I've tried the red, green and gray one (have yet to try the blue & yellow one). So far this one's my favorite! I usually do it before bed and I wake up with really smooth skin and visually smaller pores. It's super strong though. My skin is used to clay masking 3x a week and acids almost every day, yet this one still burns upon application, so be carefull if you have sensitive skin!
3. Biodermal Day&Night cream - it was just a regular classic cream and even smelled like that 🙂 It was a bit too heavy for my face (kinda like classic Nivea) but I loved it on my neck, chest and hands!
It was a sunny 69 degrees yesterday so I made pink lemonade. I also made candied lemon peels. I was able to use the simple syrup I cooked the peels in to sweeten the lemonade. And the leftover syrup is being stored in the fridge for future drinks.
decided to make myself a new transient shade for the cris, similar to the # loracpro2pallet because my favorite #nectar
shade ends. he is quickly going to the end, and I need new. I already had a shade that I had made six months ago, but it was a little red. I decided to make it look like a nectar, but a little darker. and made a foto of the entire process of its creation for you.
a big glass thing called kurant, I do not know how it sounds in English, unfortunately. I use it to rub shadows, because otherwise they are obtained with large patches and not homogeneous. in the end I received 1.08gram of shadows, while in the new nectar refill only 0.55 grams. #panthatpalette2017 #panporn #panthatpalette #makeupporn #projectpan #projectpan_ph #projectpan2017 #empties #pans #useitup #minimalism
11th Empty of 2018 and 58th Empty Overall So Far [Silkygirl Matte Fever Lipcolor Balm in the shade-Vogue]
I am calling it done with this lipstick. There's some product left in the tube but I am going to keep it for future uses since I do not have a shade like this in my collection and I don't think I will be repurchasing it anytime soon because I have lots more lipsticks to finish up.
It's a deep mauve shade which suits daily wear. It is more towards velvet matte rather than 'matte' matte. You do need to re-apply it after couple of hours but I don't mind it because I do the same to most of my lip products.

I made the New York Times plum cake with the pears in the pot holder pictures. Growing up we called it the September Cake because my momma would make it for the September birthdays that coincided with plum season. This is the pot holder in the series that I most wanted to keep. We have ours hung on nails under the kitchen shelves, above the stove, so they are seen always. But the nails are full and there isn’t a single one ready for retirement. So it stays in the shop! // This pot holder contains: the very last scrap of a shirt made for a friend, a tiny bit from my favorite dress, two more pieces from a box top long gone to another friend, linen scraps from a quilt, and inside a beloved wool skirt shrunk to unwearable and now destined to insulate. // Shop link 🔝 there are a few of these pot holders left if your February kitchen needs a pick me up!
