Recently Samantha Ravndahl posted a video called “USING UP OLD MAKEUP…PROJECT THROWBACK” and it inspired me to join in. This is also going to be a new series of posts where I give myself a few products and I’m only allowed to use them during the month of October. I will take picture of the product and show you how much I have of each product and then every week or so I will update you on how much I have used. I will be running this alongside another post which I will be posting shortly so keep an eye out for that. I think following hashtags or challenges are a fun way to connect with the social media community and also to be inspired to create content.

The products!

My first product is going to be the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation which is going to be the only foundation I wear during the month of October. You can see on the picture you can see the level of usage I have on this foundation and I want to be able to see a huge decrease by 1st November.

My second product will be the PS (Primark) Strobe cream in Pearl. I have multiple liquid glow products such as the E.L.F Glow lotion and then the Revolution liquid highlight in champagne but the first glow product I bought was the Primark strobe cream and I would love to use it as much as possible so that it doesn’t go out of date.

My third product will be the Revolution Ultra Sculpt and Contour kit in 001 ultra fair, this product has been fairly used and battered and I would love to hit pan in the bronzer and use the highlight/blush a bit more too so this will be the only bronzer I use in all of October.

My fourth product isn’t actually make up but it is beauty related, it is the Soap&Glory Peaches and Clean Cream Cleanser. As you can see in the photo I am so close to being finished this and I just want to use it up so I have some more space in my bathroom.

My fifth and final product in this project is the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette, now I LOVED this palette when it first came out and I used it a decent amount but then I’ve bought and decluttered many a palette and always told myself I will go back to it. Well now I actually am going to go back to it and show it some love. This will be the only palette I use during the month of October and I am going to try to make a decent dent in the shades so that it is getting used.

Thank you for reading this today and I hope you check out Sam’s video and feel as inspired as I did! If you do do this tag please let me know because I would love to see what products you’re coming back to!


  1. This challenge is so interesting! I feel like I so should do it just to declutter… and is that peaches and clean cleanser any good? I looove soap and glory stuff!


  2. This is such a fab idea, thank you so much for letting me know about this I’m definitely going to do it!!
