What Was the Last Makeup or Beauty Product You Completely Finished?

Published in: Just For Fun


Was it a bottle of shampoo? Conditioner? A skincare product, lipstick or a much-loved pan of blush?

It’s weird, but whenever I finish, or I’m just about to finish, a skincare product, suddenly I run out of a bunch of other skincare stuff, too.


Like right now I’m maybe two good pumps away from finishing my bottle of MAC Cleanse Off Oil Tranquil, as well as a tube of Neutrogena All-in-1 Acne Control Daily Scrub (I use this on my chin, and it really seems to have helped with my hormonal chin acne), Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser (LOVE this! It doesn’t dry out my skin at all.), Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (this lightweight moisturizer never gives me breakouts and doesn’t make my skin feel greasy or sticky) and Sunday Riley’s Good Genes Treatment (a brightener that also makes my skin just feel…better).

How about you? Have you completely (I’m talkin’ all the way) finished any makeup or beauty products lately?

  1. A coconut shower gel slash shower scrub! Loved it. Made the whole bathroom and even the rest of the apartment smell like coconut πŸ™‚

    I try really hard to finish my MAC stuff so I can do the back 2 MAC thang. So it was probably a lipgloss.

  3. SARA says:

    Nars- Orgasm
    MAC Blush- Peachtwish
    MAC Lipgloss – Pink Poodle
    MAC Foundation- Prolong wear NC42
    MAC Paints- Sublime Nature

    Whew…long list and to the MAC counter I go!

  4. Kimberly says:

    Funny how you should ask. I just finished my Wen Cleansing Conditioner and Revitalizing Mist as well as my Paula’s Choice Super Anti-Oxidant Concentrate. πŸ™‚

  5. Adriana RP says:

    I’m always fighting with myself to finish things… I don’t know why but it is pretty hard to me finish things… The problem is that I always have a few similar itens ” in use” at the same time… as an example I have four makeup removers “in use”! I use to try hard to not open new things before finish an old one, but i just can’t do that! Sad! My last accomplishment was finish my Avene hydrating serum! I was really happy! (weird girl!).
    I need to comment that I also have acne problem in my chin… I use the Clean&Clear scrub but it is not an unsung heroe! I will try the Neutrogena one next time (just wait the other one finish if I’m strong!). πŸ˜‰

  6. NeenaJ says:

    Finished off a bottle of Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser,
    La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 and
    SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Gel. Backups of all are in place!
    I plow through my trusted skincare. Makeup, not so much – there’s just too much to make a sizable dent.

  7. Agata says:

    I have noticed that too, I always run out of products at the same time. I am almost out of a face primer so I need a new one, still trying to decide what to pick. I will have to try that Neutrogena Scrub, I have had some roughness on my chin lately, I think it’s from sweating so much when working out, which my face is not used to, if that makes any sense.

  8. Betsy Clark says:

    As of TODAY I will finish my Ole Henricksen ‘Sheer Transformation’ face cream. I am a product junkie, and for me to finish anything is generally a pretty remote possibility. Not this one! It’s light, absorbs immediately and leaves my skin slightly matte but very hydrated. How do they DO that?!

  9. Sujaan says:

    I almost always finish everything from Paula’s Choice, last was her Skin Recovery Hydrating Treatment Mask and her Super Anti-Oxidant Concentrate.
    And I’m almost finished with my second bottle of Best Face Forward – Natural Serum oil. Great subject, thanks!

  10. GKitty says:

    Bobbi Brown (matte) eyeshadow in “white”–which I would’ve never thought to even try (not after years in high school and college with frosty white in my palettes! [cringe]), but the MUA who was helping me that day knew what she was talking about. πŸ™‚

  11. Lorraine says:

    SKincare products I use daily always get finished. Last ones to need replacing- Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion, Mary Kay timewise 3 in 1 Cleanser and Clinique SuperRescue Antioxidant Night oily/Combo skin. Hardly ever finish makeup products, except for foundation or BB creams. My Estee Lauder Daywear BB cream and Shiseido Sun Protection Liquid Foundation will be done by summer’s end.

  12. Appu says:

    I finished 4 this month and that never happens! Josie Maran Argan daily moisturizer, Caudalie SOS thirst quenching serum, First Aid Beauty Daily Cleanser & L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil πŸ˜€

  13. Reesa says:

    I just finished a bottle of Keracare First Lather Shampoo (love this stuff), MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, and MAC Spiked eyebrow pencil.

    It’s time to get shopping!

  14. Michelle says:

    Pravana Twist Fiber Paste…it’s the only stuff that gives my short hair texture without making my forehead break out, and I ran completely out (even after scraping out the container with my fingernail) just before traveling. It’s hard to find and only recently was able to get more…my hair looks good and forehead is clear again!

  15. Lauren says:

    I recently finished a tube of face primer as well as an eye primer, my beloved black eyeliner from BareMinerals just hit bottom, and my Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream just got used up. And that’s saying something since I don’t finish products often, usually I keep them forever until they’re bad or dried up cause I have so much!

  16. Tennyoceres says:

    I finished a tube of Missha M Signature Real Complete BB Cream. I’m thankful I did. My skin tanned a bit during spring and the BB Cream wasn’t quite a perfect match anymore.

  17. Lisa says:

    mac cleanse-off oil, I’ve used several of these
    mac strobe cream
    mac grand entrance eyeshadow (my all time favorite but was a LE)
    Moroccan hair oil
    Softsoap cashmere shower gel

  18. Corinne says:

    MAC Fix+ and my Aveeno daily moisturizer.

  19. Sheena F says:

    I’ve finished MAC Fix+, Cleanse-off Oil, and Laura Mercier travel-sized tinted moisturizer. What is the difference betweek Cleanse-off oil and Cleanse-off Tranquil?

  20. mini says:

    Burts and Bees lipbalm and Nivea soft moisturizer.

    I dont even make a dent in the small MU collection I have.

  21. Kim says:

    Josie maran spf moisturizer. Im obsessed! Too faced primer (face and eye) are the only makeup products ive ever finished. I buy way more than i can use!

  22. Monika says:

    Oh yes! And the same thing happened to me. I think three or four things ran out on me all at once. They were:

    Fresh Sugar Lip Balm (sample size and a full size!)
    Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum
    Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet (you inspired me to try this!)
    Mario Badescu Alpha Hydroxy Grapefruit Toner
    Clean and Clear Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

    I’ve bought a new lip balm and toner, but I’ve got to get all of my face stuff!

  23. Tiera says:

    The last beauty product I completely finished was the Urban Decay De-Slick spray. And I need to pick up another one asap, I love that stuff!

  24. Laura H says:

    I just finished my bottle of Hourglass Veil mineral primer – that stuff is AMAZING!

  25. Katrina says:

    Ive rcently finished my mac nw25 concealer which i had since 2009! I know i should’ve disposed it earlier but i don’t throw my makeup unless they smell and look funky. >_<

  26. Chelsea says:

    Hmmm… Probably a CeraVe cleanser. I’ve got to try that Neutrogena Ultra Gentle!

  27. musical says:

    I think it was ROC Retinol Correxion serum. Before that. it was Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Oil and Clarins SPF 40. Plus a cpl. of shower gels (Fresh Sugar Grapefruit and Caress shower gel in “Passionate Spell”).

    • musical says:

      Oh noes… Actually, the last item I finished was my Neutrogena Night Calming wipes-best makeup removing towelettes, ever!

  28. Laura says:

    I just finished my La Roche-Posay toleriane foaming cleanser. I’m almost done with my First Aid Beauty ultra repair cream and my Lumene radiance nectar. It’s so rare for me to finish make-up products, even I use something everyday.

  29. Solangel says:

    Yep! A Revlon Colorstay concealer. And I’ve rebought it! Holy grail <3

  30. Sunny says:

    I actually finished quite some stuff recently, like a pot of Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm (the next pot is already in service), NUXE honey lip balm (I’m now on my third pot), and Aesop scalp treatment (replacement on its way). I don’t know how it works with everyone, but it seems like I always finish everything at the same time!

  31. Kim says:

    Funny, I just ran out of CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and Pureology Pure Volume conditioner. πŸ™‚

  32. Keisha says:

    I finished my “It’s a Slice” body lotion by Cake Beauty, my Clarins Double Serum and mascara…I go through mascara like crazy!!

  33. Katie F says:

    I think the only beauty product I’ve ever actually finished is lip balm (like Carmex) – I’m too fickle otherwise I guess with what I use, and a lot of days I just don’t feel like wearing makeup. I don’t wear foundation or some of the things where you use the same product every day, so I have trouble finishing anything!

  34. bin du says:

    i’ve really been working on finishing a lot of my products for the last couple months, I’ve cut my collection almost in half but I still have quite a few things that I want to see go before I buy something new. My last few empties were a say yes to carrots shampoo (hated this so ended up using it to clean my makeup brushes), essie sand tropes nail polish and a revlon lipstick

  35. Lauren says:

    I’ve just finished a few products.

    – Smashbox Halo Powder
    – Neutrogena Acne Scrub – Grapefruit
    – Estee Lauder Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
    – Ouidad Climate Control Gel

  36. Adrianna says:

    I finished a tub of cream cleanser from a Korean brand called The Face Shop. Still have loads of stuff waiting to be opened but I just keep on buying like the product junkie that I am

  37. Gowthami says:

    I just finished my Himalaya Neem face pack and NYX eye liner.. πŸ˜›

    Desert Esscence Coconut Conditioner…LOVE IT!! I keep meaning to get to my local health food store to pick up another bottle!

  39. Kristy says:

    MAC Cleanse Off Oil! Even when MAC ticks me off (which is most of the time) I use this religiously. Maybe I’ll try the “Tranquil” formula next time…

  40. Barbara says:

    Cerave Foaming Facial Cleanser. Love it!!

  41. Christina says:

    Origins Make a difference face cream–Ive gone through 3 jars of that amazing stuff and nothing else compares!
    Mac Fix +
    Laura Mercier Silk Foundation

  42. jasi says:

    bioderma. stuff is amaazing. i feel clean and clear with or without water.
    also one bottle of proactiv cleanser- it took nearly a year to use it all, but it’s become a lifesaver for that once-a-month break-out-fest that just doesn’t happen anymore. i only use it when i feel like something might happen under the skin and it just doesn’t. it stops right there. awesome!

  43. Chelsea says:

    Make Up For Ever corrector palette – such a gem!

  44. Iris says:

    The last items I’ve used up are VSPro Translucent Finishing Powder (this was a rather large jar, and it took me a while to finish), a vial of Black Phoneix Alchemy Lab’s The Parliament of Monsters perfume, and a La Roche-Posay facial cleanser.
