Ever wonder how long it really takes to make a dent in makeup? I've been tracking via photos each month how much of a product I end up using, which had led to some interesting findings, and something I'd like to continue doing for the rest of the year.
So the first month I started taking photos was November where I went back to my makeup drawer and really went through what I wanted to use up. The top left photo is the Wet'n'Wild ColorIcon single eye shadow in Nutty. I was expecting this shade to be more taupe toned, but instead comes out more grey-silver. It's still very pretty, just not 100% what I had hoped it to be. The next product, on the top right is what I have been using as a setting powder, the LA Colors Pressed Powder in Nude. It's not my favorite and does get cakey looking if you use too much, but it'll do. This is just one of those products I want out. Finally the bottom image is from a Color Workshop 15 pan "Little Black Book" palette. It is all shimmery shades, and a neutrals set. Not all are the same texture, but again they do the job.
November: I've only been using these colors this month for my makeup looks, and they turn out rather pretty. I used a different moisturizer during this month, and it left my face so shiny, so I'd keep powdering my face.
Shall I continue with this series? Does this help anyone who is interested in planning out a "project pan" project?
