Products I'm (desperately !) trying to use up

 Hello everyone! It's been a while since my last post (well what else is new!!).In this post I'm going to show you the products that I'm currently trying to use up.Now this doesn't mean that they are bad products or that I don't like them.It's just that in most cases i had them for a long time and to be honest ..Well.. I'm kind of bored of them!!Also i have other shining brand new products  just waiting to be opened and used!

  These are the products and as you can see they all are makeup products because i find these are the hardest to use up.In more detail they are :

  Korres Watermelon Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 30 in Light.Even though it says light i find it a little dark and yellow for my NW15 skin.But i use it because when blended in I don't find it shows.It's not a bad product but when finished I won't repurchase because I have other products that I love more (Lioele's BB cream and of course Laura Mercier's TM!!).

  Neutrogena Healthy Skin in 10 Classic Ivory.Now this is a perfect match for my skin tone and I quite like the natural and bit glowy finish it gives.It's a very good drugstore foundation and some say that it's a dupe for Nars Sheer Glow.The reason that I won't repurchase is the same as above: I have other products that I love more plus I have some other foundations that I want to try (Armani Maestro I got my eyes set on you!)

  Urban Decay Complexion Primer Potion in Brightening.I find that it really does moisturise my dry/dehydrated skin and makes my foundation last longer.But I have at least 3 more primers waiting to be used including the ever so famous Clarins Beauty Flash Balm (can you feel my inticipation??!!).

  Clinique Clarifying Neutral Powder in 02. I was mismatched for this powder by the sales assistant (story of my life) and it's a bit dark and yellow for my skin tone.Plus I have sooo many powders that I'm trying to use up so that I can buy the Laura Mercier Mineral Powder (it was love at first sight!) which has the most incredible glowy/satiny finish!!

  YSL Touch Eclat in Light.Now I've tried sooo hard to like this product because it's an expensive one but I just don't get it!!I know it's not meant to be used as a concealer but as a brightener but I still don't like it and I can't see what's all the hype about..

  Mac Paint Pot in Rubenesque.I have this one for over 2 years and eventhough I find it to be an excellent base for eyeshadows or on it's own , I think that the colour and finish are  a bit binding because you can't really use it with mat eyeshadows (it will change their mat finish) and you can't use it with different colours because it will change their colours (it's veeeery pigmented).But it looks AHmazing paired with Mac's Mythology (a Holy Grail combination for blue/green eyes!!!).
  Mac Studio Finish Concealer in NW 15.This concealer is a big no-no for dry undereye skin!!.Even though it's very pigmented and covers really well I can't use it especially in the winter.In summer when my skin is less dry I still can't use it because I tend to get tan and then it's a little light for my skin.Plus it has SPF and boy does it show on flash photography!!!
  Mac Cream Color Base in Shell.I have it for more than 2 years and although  I like it, I'm sooo bored  of it!!!And I have Nars Multiple in CopaCabana waiting for me!!
 Stila Convertible Color in Petunia.The same goes for this one.I have other cream or liquid blushers that I can't wait to start using.

These are the products that I can't wait to use up and feature on an empties video!What are yours?? Do you get bored of makeup products easily??Do you have any back up items collecting dust while waiting for their turn??


  1. Hallo Penny! Mythology is indeed one of the best eye shadows ever, I bought it after your recommendation in youtube! I wish that Mac products had lower prices!
    What are your proposals for an all day steady spring/summer simple make up?
    Thanks for your effort, you are an angel!
