Palette/Single-Duo-Trio-Quad Challenge

Hey Everyone I have been on a roll today felt inspired and figured let me just bang out these posts while they are fresh in my mind. So I know that there are so many of you like myself that fall into this what seems to be “Makeup Block”. What I mean is I find myself either constantly reaching for the same products daily , doing the same look. yada yada yada. Now I know how easy it is when a New Fresh Eyeshadow Palette Comes out and We get excited and get it use it a few times, then tomorrow Mac comes out with there 50 thousandth collection and ooh oh I want that one too!

Well I have decided to challenge myself. I have been wanting to start a Project 5 or even 10 pan. But I would only be kidding myself if I thought I would be able to resist a new awesome product. I mean lets be real None of you would really know if I was sticking to the plan and I would only be cheating myself by stating I was only gong to stick to those products till the very last DROP!

Anywho, Here is my Challenge:

Reach into your Vanity, Makeup Drawer, Box and Pull Out all those sad and neglected makeup products you  rarely use or maybe have even forgotten about. This is a great way to ensure that your using everything you actually have and may actually help/prevent you from splurging more often. I do have to admit I have quite a few Items that can use some serious TLC!

Take a Peek:

(Have a Bunch more of Wet n Wild Trios but I have de-potted them and they are in a Palette)
So as you can see I am the Perfect Candidate for makeup Hoarders whenever it comes around!
My challenge to myself is to use 1 of these items a week and come up with a look. 
Can you handle the challenge?
I would love to hear if you guys are willing to give this a try you dont have to limit it to shadows, anything really that you feel needs some extra lovin!

    I accept that challenge!! I have so much stuff as well, and I feel bad because a ton of it is in my makeup storage thing lonely and forgotten. And I’m currently on a “no-buy” … until October! Don’t know if I will survive until then :-/

    Hey Ev I am sure you will do great with this challenge especially if you are on a “no buy”. I really try to put myself on that but I am just too weak lol. I would love to see what you challenge yourself to use!

    I started doing something similar. I pull out everything that I want to get some use out of and put it in a basket on my vanity. I don’t put it back in the drawer till I’ve used it. I’m a bit OCD, so it drives me insane to see all of it on top of my vanity. LOL After everything is put back after using, I start all over again. I find it makes me use everything I have and nothing gets hidden under something else.

    Also, if I find myself leaving something for last because I just really don’t like it, I use it one more time just to make sure. If I don’t change my mind on it, I keep another basket under my vanity that I throw things in. From there, I let me daughter and my niece have at anything they want or send it to makeup friends that I know would appreciate it. That also works well to keep my daughter out of my favorite things! 🙂
