  It's the first time I've ever used up a full-sized lipstick or a lipgloss so I'm really happy. The setting sprays and loose powder were the only ones I had so that figures. It was also nice to get some of the items that were the first in my collection out like the primer, concealer and eye primer. So were there any items that you completely used up in 2019? And would you repurchase any of them?

Ummm, a year is a long time to try to remember what I used up but I'll give it a go ha ha ha.

I know I used up a few Eco Tan products - 3 Glory Oils, 3 Acai Exfoliators, 2 Super Fruit Hydrators, 1 Toner Mist, and 1 Himalayan Scrub, so that's 10 products from that brand lol alone.

A few lip balms

A few BB/CC Creams - mainly Garnier, ZA (which has since been discontinued wahhh), couple of Korean brands.

A few Primers - The Ordinary, Essence, couple of Korean brands

A few Coffee Scrubs - Personally made by myself, a few made by a friend

Lots of Shampoos and Conditioners but all were different brands so too many to list.

Thats all I can think of at this stageother but there were items I nearly finished but didn't quite make the cut off. That is where my New Year's resolution comes in he he he.

I don't keep track of what I use or keep empties - as soon as I use something up, it's out of here! Im making a conscious effort to use up whatever's open and only buy something if I have no back ups. I know I've used up tinted moisturiser, powder, eyeshadow crayons, mini mascaras, eyebrow pencils etc. Lipstick is something I always manage to acquire without actually buying and it never seems to get used up.

That's amazing tannygirl... for me i only used up a few mineral powders and bb creams. Make up tends to last me a long time... but finished tubes and tubes of lip balm as i can not live a day without putting on any lip balm hahahaha =D

Such a great thread, however I can't remember exactly what I finished up last year. This year I will be keeping a record of what I finish.  I always have a weird sense of accomplishment when I finish a product.

Hmmmm my memory is so bad! I know I used up an eye of horus mascara, a rimmel foundation, a nyx bb cream. The only makeup I generally get through is foundation/BB cream/mascara.
I never finish nail polish or eyeliner. For me things probably expire rather than get empty.

As far as I can remember, I only finished two makeup products in 2019 and they were a Colourpop brow gel and lipgloss. I'm going to try and finish more products I have this year except foundation, because I dont think I should go to an effort to wear foundation just for the purpose of finishing it.
I always gravitate towards certain products or shades over and over again. I end up neglecting the rest of my collection even though I love creating different looks and wearing colour,  mostly because I end up not having enough time when I actually want to wear it out!

Trilogy oil. And mostly serums and oils. Most other things get thrown out before I've finished them.
A living nature lipstick and a Clinique mascara.

I usually have a decent amount of empties amassed each month (although this is mostly skincare and haircare) so I wouldn't even know how much make up I used up, I just know it'd be quite a lot! I never get through lipsticks, but I know I used up a lot of single cream shadows, nail polishes, and mascaras, and definitely a lot of setting powder. I find so much make up just goes off before one can ever use it up, which is why I try to buy a lot less now and declutter stuff to give to friends if I know I don't love something enough to use it up before it expires.

Agree lilmonmon. I find it easier to use skin and haircare than makeup. I'm actively working towards using up some nail polishes I have had for years before they go bad. I think I'm 2 down already yay.

Oh nail polish is a nightmare to use up tabucutie, I much prefer mini polishes for that reason, I don't know how anyone uses polish up! The ones I've used up recently have been ones I've owned for like 5 years (and still hadn't gone bad!)

Mainly moisturizers as I use it everyday. I find it easier to use up skincare and hair care products. Make up lasts me a very long time so I definitely prefer mini versions. I have used a few smaller size hourglass primers up but can't recall anything else. I need better will power to use thing up before buying and opening something else.

I feel super cluttered with the amount of stuff I have beauty and non beauty so think I'll be doing a declutter this weekend.
