I finished a piece of makeup!

Look!!! I did it!!! I achieved the impossible and finished a lip product!  In all my years on this earth, I don't think I've ever finished a lipstick or lipgloss.  I go through lip balms quickly enough, so they don't count but the pride I have that I've finished a piece of makeup is brilliant (and a little sad).  I've had this Carmex Moisture Plus lippie for ages now and it's a hybrid of a lip balm and a lipstick, so I'm totally allowing it as a piece of makeup that is finished.  It has great pigmentation and moisturises my lips beautifully, but I mainly use it for the colour rather than the good it does my lips.  Hence it's makeup in my book.


And a little secret, I'm just about to finish another lip product!  I actually thought it was done, but then realised I hadn't turned the end of it up enough so there's another centimeter that'll do me for the next couple of weeks.

I don't do Empties videos or posts because all you'd be seeing is bottles of conditioners and cleansers.  I've never finished a foundation, eyeshadow or anything else other than a MAC powder, so you can see my excitement!

So my question today is have you ever finished a lip product or a piece of makeup?  If so, did you have a sense of weird pride like me or do you fly through your makeup at warp speed and finishing makeup is the norm?

  1. I completely understand your excitement.
    Though I already finished powders, foundations or eye shadows but I never reached the bottom of a lip product due to the fact that I don't use them on regulary bases.
    So I will for sure also celebrate my first lip product empty.

    1. I look forward to your celebration when you finally finish a lip product! I've never finished an eyeshadow in my life, must try :)

  2. I have finished Lancome Juicy Tube in Peche, love that lip gloss and promptly repurchased! I have finished foundations. And I have 'hit pan' in a few of my eye shadows and blushes. Its the stuff I love most that I use up.

    1. I really want to try and finish a foundation too but end up seeing a new one I want, then forgetting about the others. I need to stop spending!

  3. Haha, congratulations!! :) I rarely finish my own products but in the kit things come and go all the time so I unfortunately see the bottom of a pan or empty foundation bottle quite often :/

  5. I finished my first ever mascara recently (Eyes to Kill; enable much, missus?) and I'm about to finish my first ever foundation (YSL - but I'm probably going to get Lancome's new offering to replace as I prefer its more matte ways). I've finished more than one tube of Clinique's old Black Honey, back in the day but recently? H'mmm....

    1. I've never finished a mascara! I've let them dry up from not using them while using other bits, but some day I'll finish one! I really do want to get another Eyes To Kill, that's one of the best :) Glad to hear you've not used up much either!

    1. Thanks missus, I often wonder that myself with empties videos and wish I could finish more products! I think it's because my stash is as big as a Sephora and I'm always chopping and changing ;P

  8. I regularly finish foundations, concealers and powders because I tend to stick to the same ones as I know they work with my breakout prone skin. I've gone through a few eyeshadows and a bronzer recently, and I'm nearing the end of a blush and 2 lippies. The lippies are quite an achievement because that's what I own most of! I haven't gone through that much for ages but I have been making a conscious effort to use things up/ not buy so much because my stash was getting ridiculous! x
