The ten products makeup challenge!

Hi everyone! In my post about "2013 goals" I told you I wanted to stop buying a lot of makeup and just use what I had.
That's why I'm going to do the 10 products makeup challenge. The 10 products makeup challenge is quite a known challenge, because a lot of beauty addicted people try it.
Basically you just try to empty 10 products before you buy anything else.

The first product is the L'oréal Youth Code Luminizer. I got it in one of my Deauty boxes and I use this on a daily basis.

Now call me crazy but I'm going to count each of the eyeshadows as one. So I have four items here. The reason why I choose to do this is because I only have a few single eyeshadows, but they're all quite bright or not school or work appropriate. So that's why I decided to go for a neutral palette.

This blush by Catrice, called "Apricot Smoothie" is one that I got from my best friend. Again, this is a product that I use on a daily basis and I love it very much, so it just had to be in the challenge.

Another product that I've been using for quite a while, and I still use it on a daily basis: the L'oréal True Match Foundation. I have the colour "Rose Beige".

Again, another daily used product, my L'oréal Black Smoke Volume mascara. I got this in a Deauty box as well.

The next thing that I'm going to empty before getting anything else is my gel eyeliner! I use the Essence "Midnight in Paris" gel eyeliner.
And another Deauty box product.... This is Kiehl's lipbalm. Love it! I loved it too much to use it at first, but why not use it when you need it? I mean, I could always get another one!
I'm very curious if I'll be able to hold on and actually finish this challenge. I think I'll be very proud if I do and I might go shopping after the last drop of my last product!
Wish me luck!


  1. Hard challenge!


  2. I think that this is a good idea. Make up does not last for the long time ( I think that most products should be used within 6 months) so we should use it, we'll have to get rid off it eventually anyway. If we buy too much stuff we're just wasting money. Most of us aren't professional make up artists so we don't really need that much products.

    I don't have tons of make-up myself because I was on a sort of make up detox, for a period of time I almost stopped using beauty products. However, lots of friends have been buying me beauty products, so I'm thinking about doing some beauty products review myself soon.

    btw I'm following you on gfc and bloglovin.
