For about the last year, I’ve been working on using up my UD Naked eye shadow palette. I’ve had a couple other palettes in rotation as well, and there were a few months where I wasn’t wearing any make-up, but I’m still amazed at how long it actually takes to use up eye shadow!
When I started, the palette was basically new – I had owned it for a few years, but hardly used it. By December 2015, I had hit pan on the 2 colors I had focused on until then – Toasted and Hustle. Since then, I’ve made an effort to use more variety, and wear shadow every day. The easiest way to wear shadow everyday for me has been to just do a single color all over the lid, and I’ve also switched to using Creep and Darkhorse as eyeliners with a wet liner brush.

It feels great to have hit pan on half of the shadows, but I estimate that I’ve probably still only used a quarter to third of the total amount of shadow in the palette! At this rate, I think it would take me another couple years to actually finish it completely, which is quite eye opening.
