Project Make A Dent #3 Follow Up

Time for an update! Project MAD forced me out of my makeup rut and I managed to create some looks with colours. But in my day to day makeup, if I wear any, I stick mainly to sometimes just lining my eyes with MAC Phone Number on my upper lash line and Underground on my lower lash line. I managed to use up the Clinique Chubby Stick though, so yay! I have been using the Chanel VLA every time I put on my foundation, but it’s still not dead yet. I wonder how much there is left. Feels light šŸ˜› NARS Orgasm is also my go to blush, and I think I see a visible dip. Can’t see the pan just yet, but I’m sure I’m close. I’m so tempted to use a pin and dig in, just to see how much blush there is left, but that would just be crazy. Obsessive. NUTS! Or would it? HAHAHAHA! Here’s the before after photo just to show you the progress.

Oh but you know what? After a much closer inspection, I might just see the light at the bottom of the pan for Orgasm!! I think with more use, I can see a more prominent pan action! Here’s a close up.

Hahahaha! This cracks me up. Any evidence of progress makes me excited šŸ˜› The little baby is due any time now, so, I know I won’t be wearing any makeup for the next month or so. I’m going to postpone my Project MAD #4 for later, when I will actually be wearing more makeup. In the mean time, should I put on some colour on my face, I’d probably be using both the liners, the blush and the liquid foundation. I’ll make sure I post Project MAD #4 when I’m ready or when I see any of these products die šŸ™‚ So now, I can throw away my Chubby Stick, and I have a feeling Underground will be gone soon too. It’s already getting short, so probably another month or 2 and I can chuck it out as well.

So that’s the progress, guys. Project MAD will be on hold, until everything at home is settled down šŸ™‚ After doing this for a few months, I realized it’s actually not that hard to use up stuff if we focus on a few things. But you know, erm, many of us have more than just a few things šŸ˜› A different lipstick a day will take us through the entire month or longer but anyhoo…This has been fun! Let’s do it again soon šŸ™‚

  • Ohh! Blush dent! That’s pretty cool! Good for you Lily!

    • Lily

      Thanks Tracy šŸ™‚

  • I was just gonna say after that first paragraph and photo – but Lily, there’s some pan in the NARS Orgasm!!! Is it super weird that I stare at your photos like this? Probably… #ihavenolife

    • Lily

      I know! I went nuts after seeing that pin hole pan and then realised how non makeup loving ppl will look at me. Seriously nutters. Hahaha!

  • Congratulations, Lily – good luck with baby 3! And haha you used up a whole Chubby Stick! WHAT.

    • Lily

      Thanks Larie and yes to the death of Chubby Stick!

  • Liz

    Awesome job! I’ve never hit pan on blush before. My sister hits them for me, lol.

    • Lily

      My first time too! Your sister is a blush eating machine šŸ˜›

  • It’s so hard to hit pan on Nars blushes congrats! I have a total of two lipsticks that I completely used up. Such a proud moment! :p

    • Lily

      Oh gosh I’ve had this blush for like 3 years already. Haha!

  • Pan. PAN!!! Great job, Lily! I don’t think that’ll ever happen here!!!

    • Lily

      Lol lol it’s satisfying!

  • Great job Lily! Congrats on your baby boy šŸ˜€

    • Lily

      Thank you šŸ™‚

  • that first hint of pan is THE MOST SATISFYING. Good job, you!

    ps: CONGRATS on your baby!!!!!

    • Lily

      Thank you!

  • Yay! I felt like we were at your house looking at the blush together and finding that glittering sahara of nearing pan magic! WOOHOOO! Congrats on your progress! I feel I’ve totally failed at mine since I currently can’t even find one of the lip products I nominated for Project MAD! Ha!
    Congrats on your new beautiful baby boy!! I wish you guys the best of luck getting settled in with the new family member, and -fingers crossed- a teensy bit of recovery time for mom! You did, after all, just birth a human, so I hope you can get a little bit of rest before, ya know, his 18th birthday. šŸ˜‰ Much love!

    • Lily

      I’m so sorry I missed this comment! And thank you for your well wishes šŸ™‚ Did you find that misplaced lip product? If not then, well, you can always choose another one. Lol
      We are settling well but I have help for this first month. 2 more weeks and we’ll have the baby all to ourselves. That’s when we’ll have all the fun šŸ˜›
