Sashay away - My first empties post!

My first empties post is a go! I've never done one of these. Mostly because I don't ever use products up for the life of me - a travel size shower gel literally took me 6 months to use up. How other people use 2 in a month? I have no sensibleanswer.

Also, I left out products like lotions, makeup removers, toothpaste, cotton pads and jazz like that. Why? Well, my blatant opinion is that personally I find them quite boring to read, especially when it's about products there's not much to say about (like toothpaste and cotton pads). I also leave out mascara because my lashes suck so every mascara kind of looks the same on them, which makes reviewing them pointless. 
Other than that, I just don't use any products aside from bar soap, facial cleanser and absolute necessities like that (which again, take me several decades to use up). I dunno man, I just don't have the time and mostly dediction to use lotion every day. People who do: I salute you.

So I wanted to narrow it down to stuff I actually was able to use up and... makeup! Finishing a makeup product is a milestone in life that should be shared. Also, it shows what products are the bees knees, as it takes so long to use up and thus must be good.

Here are my picks.

Lipsync For Your Life - Product I want to use up: an Introduction #1

Can you tell I've been watching RuPaul's Drag Race? Because I have been. A lot. So I decided I wanted to name a new series on my blog after the show. If you've seen my latest post, you probably know that I want to buy less products and use my stash (I suggest you give it a read as it shows the direction my blog is going). There are 1) things that I want to keep no matter what ("Shante you stay"), 2) things that I will destash because I can not see myself using them ("Sashay away") and 3) products that are not my favourite but have so little product left that I will just use them up, after which I decide if I will repurchase them or not ("Lipsync for your life").

I wanted to name this series something else than "project pan" because real talk, these jars don't have a pan, haha! They have either stuff inside of them or not, no way around it, so I came up with different names! I hope it's not too confusing. I found it appropriate since drag queens go through makeup like water.

If you have no idea what the names of the categories mean, I highly suggest you watch RuPaul's Drag Race - also amongst other reasons because it's amazing.

This category is about the third group. They are pretty so I won't have issues using them up, so I won't destash them (hence the "you stay"). After I've used them up I will decide if I will repurchase them or not, hence the "lipsync for your life": this is their last chance to impress me.

"So good luck, and don't fuck it up."
