Products I’m Using Up – Update

Posted on: February 22, 2012

If you remember I posted this around a week ago, it is a list of ten beauty products I’m using up before I buy anything else.

I have finished three of the products already.

♥ Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
♥ Benefit Get Even in 01 Light
♥ Ed Hardy Original Perfume
♥ Revlon Top Coat Nail Polish
♥ Maybelline Super Stay 24 Hour Foundation in 005 Light Beige
♥ Max Factor Mastertouch Under Eye Concealer in 303 Ivory
♥ Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
♥ Benefit Dr Feelgood
♥ Benefit Playstick in Spin The Bottle
♥ 17 Blusher in Bramble Frost

Benefit Get Even in 01 Light

This pressed powder is a light enough colour for me and it covers redness quite well but I find that I have to reapply throughout the day more than once.
I will not be repurchasing this product, if it was cheaper I might just to use to cover redness but I don’t think it’s worth the money as it doesn’t last, which means I end up using much more than I would like.
(I have a project in mind for the empty case – look out for that soon)

Max Factor Under Eye Concealer in 303 Ivory

This concealer is made for under eyes yet it didn’t seem to do anything to cover my dark circles. You don’t get much product and you need quite a lot of it to really cover anything at all.
I will definitely not be repurchasing this product.

17 Blusher in Bramble Frost

This is the first blush I ever used when I was first trying out make up. I bought it again a couple months ago to see if I would still like this over 10 years later. It is a good blush, nothing special about the colour or formula but it does what it’s supposed to. It stays on all day and is cheap.
I would repurchase this if I was on a budget but I normally prefer more interesting colours.

I’m not doing too badly with working my way through the rest of the products so I’ll post another update next week.

Have you tried any of these products?

Just wondering, how do you find Benefits Dr. Feel Good? How do you use it? I’ve used so many Benefit products and this is kind of one on my “To buy” list. would you recommend it?

I used to apply it all over my face with the sponge. I found it made my foundation apply a lot smoother but as for making it last any longer I don’t think it does that at all. How I use it now is I apply it with my fingers just to the places I have fine lines and pores that I want to fill in. It says you can use it over make up but I’ve never tried that. So I guess it depends what you want from it really. It’s a nice product but it’s not something I can’t live without. Hope that helped x

Wow thanks a million! That was really helpful.. so it’s pretty much like a primer? x

Haha that’s ok! Yeah that’s what I use it as, not really sure what it would do if you put it over make up :/ seems kind of pointless to me lol x
