Products I Want To Use Up In 2016 Update #1 + New Products

          Hey, guys! I know, I know. I have for too long, I'm sorry. Work and practicum (for Graduate School) have almost killed me, made me sick, due to a busy schedule. This is the 4th week that I'm working on weekends and I'm starting to feel lazy. Have you ever felt like that? Haha! Anyways, I will be talking about the updates of my Products I Want To Use Up in 2016 Challenge. I started this project last January; I promised that to give updates every two months. 

          Of all the project pans I have done, this is by far the successful one, even though I'm just doing this for two months. I am actually using the products involved constantly; I am determined to finish what I have started this fine. My progress will be seen on the pictures you will see in a moment. If you are interested on my update, just keep on reading. :)

Clinique Different Lipstick in A Different Grape (right) - I've been using this pinkish grape (according to the description) shade a lot since January. It looks way too dark, but I tell you, it has a light swatch on the lips. It's buildable and has creamy, thick consistency. As you can see, I have used this more than the lipstick on the left. I'm totally into this shade. I hope I could finish this at the end of the year. It's getting old.

Clinique Different Lipstick in Shy (left) - This is described as a midtone violet, which is kind of contrary in person. It swatches on my lips as a sheer plum-berry glossy shade. It feels like a lip gloss; has a higher amount of shine than the A Different Grape. They actually look similar; Shy is a sheer glossy version of A Different Grape. This product is a struggle for me, I can't use this alone because it's so sheer. I don't use this all the time. I doubt if I can even finish this lipstick this year. I'll see what I can do.

Etude House Look At My Lips in 04 - A pale pink shade which isn't really good-looking on my lips; doesn't match my skin tone quite well. Though it's nice to top on my dark lipsticks. I mainly this for topping and combing with other lipsticks. Maybe I could use this up at the 2nd or 3rd Quarter of the year.

San San Age Defense Lipstick in 03 - A peachy nude glittery lipsticks which smells like chocolate. I have used a lot of this the first time I got this. It blends in with other lip products nicely, though the glitter are kind of messy. Evidently, you can see how I love this lippy. I ought to finish this one because I don't want this to go bad. I will be done with this in a couple of months, I guess.

Mary Kay Eye Mineral Color in Honey Spice - You can see some deep going on there! I have used this as my main eye lid shade since the last week of January. It looks pretty and brightening. On the next update, maybe you'll see the pan already. Haha!

 Ever Bilena Advance HD Eye Pencil in Natural Blonde - I love this as an eyeshadow base. It's thick consistency helps the eyeshadow to stick on the lids longer. I also notice less creasing upon checking up at the end of the day. Maybe I'll use this up in 3 months. Let's see. 

AVON Glimmerstick Cosmic Eye Liner in Galactic Green - A glittery moss green eyeliner which sticks on my lash line all through out the day. I also use this as an eyeshadow base, at times. I still have a lot to use up. May you'll see a shorter stick on the next update. 

Etude House Look At My Eyes Pearl Shadow Base - Yay! A wider pan. I used a good amount of this cream shadow base over the past 2 months. It tends to be glittery when I put too much on my lids. It goes way up to my crease when I blend this product on my eyes. I hope 50% of this base on the next update. 

Etude House Look At My Eyes Cafe in Honey Milk - Umm.. I haven't got a significant progress on this one yet. I use this to highlight my brow bones. I need to get on the pan of this really quickly. I need to double time on this one. 

Nichido Foundation Stick in Ivory - I'm almost there! I use this as a concealer on  my dark circles. It has tint of peach-orange, perfect for discoloration on my under eyes. I know I could use this one up towards the end of the year. 

Elf Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder - This blush is another struggle for me. It's pretty, but the product itself is hard. It's sheer and glittery. In order to speed up, I use this on top of a shadow to create a peachy golden glow. 

Revlon CustomEyes Shadow/Liner in Naturally Glamorous - I have saved the last product for the best. I have hit pan on 3 shadows in just 2 month! How satisfying is that!? I have this shadow palette for years, and I have just hit the pans recently. I'm happy though. Seeing the pan means your are getting closer to finishing it up. My target is to hit pan on the rest of the shadows this month; and wider pans on the next update. 


          The following products are replacements for the original items included on this challenge. My IN2IT Supreme Eyeliner was accidentally broken because I dropped it last last week. I didn't feel right in claiming that I have finished it so I picked up another item. Then, the Mary Kay Mineral Cheek Color is actually gone bad; it's stiff and hard to use up. I picked another powder blush in replacement. 

Elf Studio Blush in Tickled Pink - This is the replacement for the Mary Kay blush. As you can see, I've already hit the pan; this was included on my last project pan challenge. I love this pink blush. It has glitters on it, but is barely visible on the skin. I might use this one up before the year ends. I not sure. Haha! :)

Maybelline Clear Smooth All-In-One Pressed Powder in Nude Beige - This is the replacement of the IN2IT eyeliner. I have this powder since last year and I have used a good amount of this product. This is the best powder for oily skin and it doesn't do what it claims. It's a decent powder for setting my face though. I'm quite sure that I can finish it up this year. 

          This concludes my update. I think that I'm doing a great job on this challenge this year. I'm now focused and determine to do my projects now. I'm hoping to have a greater job towards my next update. The next one will be on May, so stay tuned for that.
