    UU: Happy Naturals Conditioner - this was purchased in January and I have used it about 90% of the time since then, so I feel like it was good value and WDBA though it's not an exciting product it does work well. On to the next Conditioner in my stash!

    GA: Spouts farmers market crazy coconut lip balm
    GA: COOP haircare dry shampoo

    There is a local drive in aid of https://smartworks.org.uk/ - worth checking out, I am also donating clothing, the above items were the only sealed things in my stash beauty/toiletries/makeup wise

    I'm still reading and cheering you on from the sidelines.

    Two successes:
    UU Max Factor primer sample, was a GWP, fine
    Hit pan on a Stila blush in the Fairly Light palette, Now have pan in 3 (2 blush, 1 eyeshadow) of the 7 products. Hoping to have pan in everything by the end of the year.

    8 INs, a Body Shop gift set and some Clarins samples, both gifts.

    No purchased INs, Got really excited about the Maybelline Rose Gold mascara, but then it turned out that only the packaging was rose gold, not the actual mascara. How exciting would that have been?

    UUs:

    Rosehip oil: WNBA this particular brand as it smelt like cod liver oil. I may have been sold a fake,

    Colgate mint toothpaste: WMBA, basic, cheap toothpaste

    Ins:

    3 x natural Portuguese soaps in Cherry, orange and apple scents. Given as a gift from colleague.

    PP:

    To make time to use up remaining face masks instead of scrubs.

    One UU tonight:

    A. Florence Balm to Milk Cleanser 35ml WMBA. This was a beautiful cleanser. I liked this, but there's other balms that I prefer. I may buy the Hydrating Gel Cleanser from this brand in the future. I loved the sample I had of it. But this was really nice.

    Philosophy Pure Grace Firming Body Emulsion 500ml - this is lovely to use as all Philosophy lotions are but WNBA as when my stash is used up I will be looking for a plastic free option.

    One GA away today:

    Dr Jart Ceramidin Oil Balm 40g I like this, but not enough to use it. Gave to a friend who will use it up.

    And two INs today:

    Soaper Duper Silcillian Lemon Body Butter 50ml
    Oral B Satin Tape 25m


    A new item to try and an essential, ready for when my current one finishes.

    Another two INs from an online order arrived yesterday as well:

    Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner 30ml
    Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant sample


    I wanted a mini of the toner to see whether I really like it or not, since I've missed it.

    Finish 7 by Summer:-
    [STRIKE]Benefit Lemon Aid[/STRIKE]
    Urban Decay Darkhorse
    NARS Outlaw blush
    NARS Gilda blush
    [STRIKE]MAC Lost Invite mini lipgloss[/STRIKE]
    OPI Tickle my Francey
    [STRIKE]Philosophy Pure Grace[/STRIKE]


    Lemon Aid done. This is now a discontinued item so I could not repurchase and not sure that I would as there are so many eyeshadow primers on the market now. I have my NYX one that will replace this.


    So, I love these seasonal projects and am going to do a Finish 7 by Autumn Project. Won't roll over all of the items above as I'm sick of saying that there is no progress in Darkhorse though I still use (and will continue to use) it in my brows every day.



    So my new list:-


    NARS Outlaw and NARS Gilda blush

    OPI A Definite Moust Have
    A fragrance
    Colourpop Supershock shadow : Bill
    Shimmery brown eyeshadow from Smashbox Full Exposure palette
    Kat von D Tattoo Liner
    NYX colour correcting concealer


    I've grouped up the blushers and eyeshadows as I intend to use them all regularly. I want to at least hit pan on the blushers and finish the eyeshadows both of which have significant pan.


    Want to rotate my fragrances to keep them all in regular use and if I finish one that will be great. I have 8 bottles including two body sprays. I do have a further Primark fragance that I've decided to use as room spray and this is excluded from my numbers for this reason.


    I'm hoping that the Tattoo Liner and NYX concealer are gimmee items.

    PP List:-

    Lacura Q10 night serum
    [STRIKE]Philosophy Purity Cleanser [/STRIKE]
    [STRIKE]Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream
    [STRIKE]Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue (cut open, think it will be gone tomorrow)
    [/STRIKE][STRIKE]Nivea deodorant
    OGX shampoo
    ABC Tea Tree SkinWash[/STRIKE]
    [/STRIKE]Murad Clarifying Toner
    [STRIKE]Margaret Dabbs hand cream - cut open.[/STRIKE]

    No update although the toner will be finished by the end of the month. I really can't tell with the serum as the packaging is opaque.



    I have a TA and UU to report:-


    TA: Maybelline nail polish called Cherry. Was going to pan this and wore it yesterday but it was applying streakily already. Have far too many red colours to try and revive this so it's gone. Will replace it in my unofficial project polish with OPI Bullish on OPI.


    UU: Bumble and Bumbe Bee Straight Styling Creme. This was a HG but I now prefer Amika Bombshell spray (though they have changed the name). I do have a mini Living Proof styling product to use next and then may borrow some of Emma's (as she is home) for now.
