used it! (mostly full sizes, too!)

*EDM Light Pink Face Color. This is the same full size I bought in my first non-sample EDM order, way back in spring 08! It's been transferred to progressively smaller containers as I used it up, and the original jar is long gone. I used this a lot when I first started with mineral makeup, and I've been using it up by mixing a little with my frankenfoundation - it helps lighten and brighten the mix. The formula's changed now, and I wouldn't buy again for that reason, but I really did enjoy this product.

Korres Basil Lemon body scrub - got this as a Sephora deal a while back - it was pretty good stuff, and I'm going to buy some basil essential oil so I can replicate the scent somewhat. I think it was a little drying, but I loved using it. Too expensive to repurchase, though. Also, it was kind of annoying how the bamboo grits would stick around the bottom of the shower.

SN Lychee blush sample baggie - too red for me, had to use a tiny bit with a duo fiber brush, or else I'd look sunburned.

Burt's Bees Herbal Blemish Stick - Don't buy this unless you like the way licorice/anise smell. I don't. Also, I don't think this did much for me. At least I get a nice glass rollerball bottle out of it that I can repurpose for something else.

  1. Wow 50 full size items? That's amazing! I never use up anything but skincare. xP

  2. You go girl! I can't believe you had a foundation since 08 and finally used it! Thats awesome! The lemon basil scrub sounds great. I bet it would be too hard to make your own!

  3. VijiiS, the full size items include about 10 bottles of haircare, which I can really go through, and also lip balms and skincare and stuff. And I've been keeping track of this stuff since September.

    Jill, it was a highlighter/face brightener sort of thing. I was mixing it with a mix of three ill-advised purchases that I'm using as powder foundation these days. If I had lemon oil (which I do), basil oil, salt, and oil, I could make a mean scrub. The basil oil's the only one I don't have.
