Let's talk about five by fall..

Sometimes being a member of beauty blogger networks is bad, really bad.
Because they're complete enablers!
You won't hear many..
"No, don't get that stunning highlighter, lipstick combo pack... and definitely don't get that just released, ridiculously expensive, insanely beautiful new foundation"
 

However there are perks and they far outweigh the bad!
Lets be honest the only negative to enabling in this case is the money thing..
and money ain't nothing but a chicken wing.
Moving on.

When Angela from Raincouver Beauty asked if anyone would want to join her use 5 by fall mission I was like "YES"..

I need to use products up, its a crying shame.
So without further ado here is my 5, plus a couple extra just in case ;)
 
 
1. Victoria Secret fragrance - discontinued scent, similar
2. Lush Santa lip scrub - Christmas time release, similar
3. Fresh Rose face mask - Sephora
4. Fresh Sugar lip treatment - Sephora
5. Mac concealer - Mac
 
Luna is very excited for this endeavor ^

As for my extras I'm really going to try and use up these Glam Glow eye masks

And my favorite Maybelline colour whisper in pin up peach.

  1. Hahah, we totally are the worst enablers (or best?)! I want to try both of those FRESH products, do you like them? Also, I'd fly through those GLAMGLOW eye masks, I'm obseeeesssed with their products!

    1. Hahaha it's the best for me and the worst for my bank account, but I wouldn't have it any other way ;))

      I love fresh! Love. I purchased a value pack at Christmas and I've already flown through it and repurchased. I love the face cleanser but most of all the moisturizer! It works so good on me :)))

  2. There are some products that just seem to sit in drawers forever...
    And the beauty blogging community is entirely enablers! I avoided it for a while, but it's so easy to get sucked in *sigh*

    Good Luck! :D

    1. It's so true!
      I can't seem to part with them but they sit and sit and sit..
      Hopefully this will motivate me :)
      I'm so good for soooo long at saving money then I go looking for one item and walk out of the store with 12! it's a love/hate relationship :/

    1. You should try one, they are so good!
      On days when I get up and run out of the house I always have it in my bag it adds a little colour to my face :)

  5. I seriously need more scents in my collection! I was super excited when I saw the Victoria Secret spray in the picture but said when I saw discontinued :( I think I'm going to try their beyond Glamorous one though! Do you know if the Glam Glow Eye treatment, work for dark circles? I have been trying everything to make my eyes look a little less tired all the time! Really great list, good luck using them all up ;)

    1. I know I was so disappointed! The good part is their scents last forever, the bad part is they may be discontinued by the time you need to rebuy! Haha
      I really want to try the beyond glamorous too, let me know if you get it :)

      The glamglow claim to help fine lines, puffiness and dark circles - here's hoping because I need a miracle! ;)

      I've never been to NY but already wanted to go bad, now I want to go extra bad and go on the SATC tour :)

    1. It's such a bad habit! But I cannot resist hahaha
      I only repurchase the same couple of products over and over and over all the others I never empty and they just keep building up :/ yikes!

  8. This is a fabulous idea! I have so much unused products, it's quite ridiculous. I love that pin up peach color! Are the whisper sticks good?

    1. Me too! Such a waste, I try to give things to my sisters but I'm still such a hoarder ;)

      I love the colour whispers! I went crazy last summer and bought about half a dozen because I loved the sheer formula. Pin up peach is by far my favourite though :))

    1. Thanks Maria! Here's hoping I finish ;)

      I've already used the lip scrub a couple of times and I always think they're so yummy smelling! I need to get in the habit of using regularly because they're awesome :)

    1. Thanks Natalie! :))
      I need someone to hold me accountable, the girls will keep me on track more so than my husband since he doesn't know a lipstick from a eye shadow ;))

  12. good luck to everyone! i did a huge destash a couple of months ago. sometimes i wnat to do the 'finish' challenges but at the same time i just want to purge everything immediately b/c it will take FOREVER if i try and finish up everything i buy (which just means i need to slow down the buying but we all know how hard that is...)

      Yes!! I am the same way!
      Something needs to give, but it's so hard ;)

  13. I totally love this idea! As I'm not as awesome and fancy as you, I don't have a ton of extra products anyway, but I bet I could find some things that I need to use up! ;)
