Use 17 in 17 Update 2

As you may remember way back at the start of the year I wanted to use up 17 products in 2017. I didn’t do an update in February due to the fact that I did not manage to use as much of the products as I thought I might and I felt like there was no progress. I will admit I have managed to lose one of the products because Jess has been playing with my makeup which means I lose it easily.  These pictures were actually taken at the start of the month however, I have just not had time to put them up on my blog so they have been progressing since on some of them.

The first product which I am going to share with you is the Revlon Colour Stay this is a foundation which I have been using because it is my winter shade, This is one which I have now have to really shake to get any product out so it is really close to being actually finished. I have been using this a lot however, I can not wait to repurchase this one and then I will have the pump because this is something which my doesn’t have due to its age. I think I will only be able to use this if I mix it with a foundation which is too dark for me because I have a slight tan now and this would be way to light for me.

The next item is one which I can see the difference in and it is the Sleek Rose Gold Blush the pan on this has grown a lot to the left and on the top. The product is getting really thin and I can see this crumbling a lot soon because of this. I have only been using this blush for the past few months which shows when I put my mind to it I can use some serious amount of product. This is one I can see myself using a lot more now because I seem to be wearing more makeup. I can see myself hitting pan completely on the left side by the next update which I aim to make in August.

The urban decay primer potion is one which has had a little bit of love recently maybe this is because of the warm weather I have wanted to make sure that my eyeshadow is going to stay in place. This has gone from been around the d of decay to around the a of urban. I think this is going to be a product which I end up using more while the weather is so warm. I think that I might actually be able to use this product up before the end of the year my target for the next 3 months is the u in urban.

Porefessional I do not think I have made a secret is not one of my favourite products because of the film that it seems to leave on my skin. I do not think I have not used this product since around April I might have used it a couple of times since then but due to the really small amount that you need to use you can hardly see any progress. I hope to use this product a lot more because I really want it to go and if I do not start using it soon it is not going to be gone before the end of the year.

High beam is a product which there does not look like a lot of progress has been made on however the progress has actually been on clearing out the bit behind where I had made progress and you can now see through the packaging. Even though the product has not gone down it has made a massive dent into clearing the product which is something I am proud of. I really need to use high beam more because since adding it into this project I have really enjoyed using it. I think if I put my mind to it I could have this product completed in the next couple of months.

This pallete is one which I know that I am not going to complete because I have realised how much I actually do not like this product. The pigmentation is so poor I have to use so much of it when I use the pallete and also it has so much fallout and at the moment I do not have the time to be dealing with it. I do not think I have used this product since the last update and I think I am highly unlikely to use it again I might actually end up throwing this one away. Or actually having to force myself to use it at least once a week so that I do make some progress.

ELF SPF 15 Lip Balm is a product which I will admit I have actually been using a little bit but due to the amount that you need it takes a while for progress to be made and be seen easily. I think that I have been using this a couple of times a week but I know I need to use more of the lip balm to keep my lips in good condition anyway while we are having this warm weather so this maybe the perfect time to do this. I aim by Sepetember to have less than I currently do maybe have used  1/4 of what is left.  This is a product which I have been loving and I rarely use any other lipbalm because of how easy this product is.

The last time I did an update the Essence say matte powder had the tiniest bit of pan however, this has expanded over the last couple of months as you can see and the area around the pan has got a lot thinner. This powder has not been used that much in the last month or so because I have fallen in love with a Nars one which I purchased at the end of last year.  I really need to focus on this one because the packaging has broken and now I can not travel with it while it is warm and I am needing to powder more I should see a huge change in this product.

This is the NYC lip stain in smooch proof and for some reason like the idiot I am I have taken this picture the wrong way around.l I think I am up to the S in Stain however it can be pretty hard due to the packaging to see how much of this you have used. I have found myself having to twist this product up a lot more maybe this is because the product is drying out it could be for another reason. I have been using this one for days when I just want something subtle to wear to university. I would love to get to the end of the word stain before the next update but I am unsure how possible that is because I have been loving a lot of different lip shades recently.

Again it is hard to see how much of the stain I have used but I was about the same as the one in smooch proof but I think I am actually up to the A in stain. I have not been reaching for this one as much for some reason maybe it is because I have been loving some other shades a hell of a lot more and I have found the staying power on these is not great. I hope again to get to the end of the word stain with this before I do my next update I must remember to put them in my bag and then I will actually reach for them more.

The Rimmel scandleyes in Nude is another one which I do not think I have sharpened which means that it will not have got any smaller. I am unsure if I actually reached for this item this is something which I really need to change because I loved it so much.I do not know the reason that I have not reached for it I think I might have to hide the new one of this product so I make sure that I am actually using the same one every time rather than using one which could be a different pencil. I think that I need to actually start using it because then I may see some progress.

Another product which I have not used because I lost it for a few months and obviously when it is lost I can not use the product.  I am talking about the Essence  Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Black Fever. I seem to remember that this was not the greatest eyeliner and have ones which I prefer so reach for them when I want eyeliner. It is not a thing which I usually apply every day anymore because I want to be out the door as quickly as possible now because I fear to missing my train.

The body shop shimmer lip gloss in Cranberry is one which I have only used a handful of times because I have found that it is too sticky for me. I hate sticky lipgloss when you have long hair you hate this kind because they seem to always too sticky with you hair. I think the packaging does not entice me a lot I have put this next to my bed now and may apply it when I go to bed in order to hydrate my lips and actually get some of the product used up. I would love to make some more visible progress with this product in the next few months because I really do want it to be used up.

I think that I have halved the size of the Essence concealer I can not actually think of the name of it and it has rubbed off I think it is antispot. I am amazed how much progress I have managed to make on this because at the start of the project I thought this would be one which I would struggle with due to it being a stick form. I think that if I continue to use the product at the rate which I have been doing it could be one of the next products to be used up. I think I am just going to continue because shock this is one of the only items I am happy with the progress of on.

The final item in this update because I have managed to miss place my soap and glory lipstick and on and on bronze cream eyeshadow that is what you get when you let Jess play near your make up. The final item is the Lush Santa Baby lip scrub the dip in this has got a lot deeper than it was when I put this in the project. This is one which I know for sure I will be using more in the next few months because I wear more matte colours as I am at work and I need them to last and for that you need amazing lips. I do not aim to finish this product I just aim to make some decent progress on this scrub. I would love to hit pan on the bottom of the jar.

I have only used one item in the whole of these 6 months but I have decent progress on a couple of them I do not think I am going to be able to finish 17 because I have been taking far too many make up free days but who knows it may change and I might make some amazing progress in the last 6 months of the year.

Have you tried to finish any make up off recently?
