Finish 5 by Fall Tag

When Angela from Raincouver Beauty asked if anyone would be interested in doing a 5 by fall challenge I jumped at the chance!  I have far to many products taking up room in my stash.  Since I became really interested in makeup just over 2 years ago, I have gotten quite the collection.  I am very quickly influenced to try any new thing that comes out!  My family have started asking me if I have enough yet?  The answer is always no!  There is always something new to try and I am having a blast trying everything out!  I now that there is probably no way to use up what I have, but I am going to give it my best shoot (while adding more to it!!)  

Anyway back to the reason for the post.  The rules, as set out by Angela are

  1. Pick 5 items (extras are okay) that you want to use up.
  2. You have until the first day of Fall-September 23, 2015 to make as much progress as you can.
  3. Make an update post about halfway through (optinol) and a final reveveal on September 23!
  4. I'll be using #cbbfinish5 to track my progress, and I'd love for yo to do the same!
  5. Good Luck and have fun!  Hope you'll rediscover favorities or just clean out some space in your collection!

A fairly easy set of 5 rules for a Finish 5 by Fall!  

My first set of 5 products I want to use up by Fall, September 23, 2015. Urban Decay Naked Skin, Sephora Brow Gel, Stila Lip Glaze, Urban Decay 24/7 Lip pencil, and Eve Pearl Corrector.

Here are my first 5 that I want finished!  A few of these are old, or are things I want to finish up because they are close and I want to try something new.

  1. Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup in 4.0 - WOW that's a mouthful of a name.  This was my first higher end foundation and it is coming up on 2 years old, gross I know!  This foundation was great when my skin was drier, and the color was a perfect match for my skin in late August early September.  It is way to dark for me now so I think I may try to mix it with something else? Maybe Estee Lauder Double Wear that is getting a bit to light?  I am curious to see how this will last on my newly oily skin as well.
  2. Sephora Clear Brow gel-I actually picked this up in a kit from Sephora to see how the brow pencil was.  I so far have been liking this ok, am anxious to finish this so I can see how it is against the Anastasia one that I got in the Sephora Favorities - Beauty Closet.
  3. Stila Lip Glaze in Orchid - I am embarrassed to say I do not know when I got this.  I think I remember liking the formula?  It is really glittery though so I am unsure about this one.  It will be getting tossed I am sure if I don't finish it.
  4. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil - This was my first lip pencil as well.  So about 2 years old, I actually don't know why I stopped using this.  I like the color it is creamy and has decent staying power.  I think this one will be an easy one to use up.
  5. Eve Pearl Dual Salmon Concealer Treatment in Fair/Light - I picked this up at Imats in November last year where I got to meet Eve Pearl as well.  She is such a nice and helpful women and deserves to do well.  I really like the corrector side of this duo, it does a pretty good job of canceling out most of my dark under-eye circles.  I have not really used the concealer side of this and think its about time I did.  I am pretty sure that I want to pick up another one of these at Imats when I go in September this year.  Unless anyone has any other suggestions of something else to try?  I have tried the Benefit Erase Paste and I found it to be OK, just didn't wow me.

Now for my bonus 5!

My 'Bonus' 5 for the 5 by Fall challenge. Revlon Photoready, Rimmel Match Perfection, Mac Mineralize Skin Finish, Benfit Hoola, and Stila Convertible Color.

My 'Bonus' 5 for the 5 by Fall challenge. Revlon Photoready, Rimmel Match Perfection, Mac Mineralize Skin Finish, Benfit Hoola, and Stila Convertible Color.

  1. Revlon Photoready eyeprimer + brightner - I have no clue as to ehen I picked this up or why it is so close to being done.  I am fairly confident I can use this up.
  2. Rimmel Match Perfection Skin Tone Adapting Concealer in 010 Ivory - This is also another product that I am not sure of when I got it or why it is almost empty!  It has 2 marks on it as when I first pulled it out I thought it was almost full, it was only when I was checking on the color and to make sure it hadn't gone off that I realized it was almost empty.  Another one I am fairly confident in my ability to use up.
  3. Stila Convertible Color in Peony - This is another product that I got in the Sephora Favorites kit.  I have been pretty bad about getting all these kits and than forgetting about the products that aren't what I would normally use.  I had said in the previous post that this was one of the products I wanted to try out and than promptly forgot about it.  Oops.  I am hoping that I can at least hit pan on this sample size and get a good idea of whether or not I like it.
  4. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium Plus - This is another product that I have had for almost 2 years.  I really like this powder as an all over face powder.  I find it leaves a nice finish on the face as a setting powder and can make a foundation that is a touch to light just about right for me.  I am hoping to ht pan on this one as well.
  5. Benefit Hoola - I have had this box 'o powder for just over a year.  I actually won this in the first blog contest I entered from Canadian Beauty.  It was a huge gift basket filled with a ton of products!  I remember being so excited.  I have been using this powder for 2 years and still have not hit pan.  I really want to hit pan on something!

So there are my Finish 5 by Fall products, plus an extra 5 for good measure.  I am really excited to use up/hit pan on all these products.  Have any of you done a finish _ by _ challenge before?  Are you doing something similar now?  If you are please leave me a link in the comments so I can follow along on your progress.
