As you now likely know, I launched Project Make-A-Dent (#projectmakeadent) in October 2013 in an effort to use up some of my loved (yet neglected) makeup. The picture above illustrates the extent to which I had made a dent in each of the chosen products when I launched the series.
Fast forward to January and you can see that the lip and eye products were really beginning to show considerable wear.
However, it wasn't until February that I had the breakthrough that I had only imagined when I launched this series! While all things look a bit more worn, I am thrilled to report that I actually finished five of the nine products chosen!!
5 full-size products finished!
The lip and eye pencils were fairly easy because I was using them daily, and on one fateful day I went to sharpen both and the last bits of product were exhausted revealing only hollow product-free tubes! WOOHOO! The Rouge Coco Shine in Royallieu and Glossimer in Glaze started emptying at warp speed in January and February because I opted to use them on a daily basis, but I somehow thought that I would still be using them in March as well. Truth be told, I was motivated to finish them so I reached for them quite often. I started to get a bit bored with them, but they were so close to empty that I had to see it through. The real shocker for me was finishing the Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer! The opaque black packaging prevented me from ever really knowing how much product was left, and though I would tap my fingers along the side of the tube to listen for hollow spaces I never really knew until the last squirt of product that I was reaching the end. Once I cut the package open I decanted the last little bit into a very small jar and used it up from there. I am so thrilled that I actually was able to use up five full sized products!
Here is my question to you: Do I keep the remaining MAC Eye Kohl in Powersurge, the two MAC eye shadows (Carbon and Patina) and the Chanel Joues Contraste in Narcisse in the next rotation of #projectmakeadent, or do I pick entirely new products for the next round? Let me know what you think!!
