Let's talk most-recent-empty and peep at our beauty graveyards, shall we?

The Lipstick League is curious about two details this week: name the last beauty product you finished, and one beauty product in your stash that you know you'll never finish.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara before and after

Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara before and after

I'm on my third or fourth Amaterasu Liquid Brow Pen, and although I'm a mere day or two away from cracking open a fresh one, it is not my most recent empty. The last beauty product I finished (and immediately re-upped) was Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect Mascara. Can't live without it now, and you can't make me.

Aside from the occasional item that disappoints me, my never-ever-finish will probably always be eyeshadow quads and palettes. I don't think I've ever finished one of those. Pressed powder, waterproof liners, crayon shadow... I finish those eventually. But I think I'm safe in predicting I'll never hit pan on every single shade in any quad or palette before it expires.

Here's what the Lipstick League is talking about right now

Here's what the Lipstick League is talking about right now

Gouldylox  Kelly spent last weekend at CosmoProf and while she's overwhelmed by the entire experience, she learned something really valuable about herself and found a mantra that changes how she thinks about food. Could it help you, too?

My Beauty Bunny  Rumour is this palette is an out-of-this-world, glitter-lovers dream-come-true. See My Beauty Bunny's verdict: Urban Decay Moondust Palette Review, Swatches & Tutorial.

My Newest Addiction  Laura has been in Hawaii all week, so it's only fitting that she share a hair tutorial on Big Beachy Waves.

Olive & Ivy  How cute is this super easy mermaid nail art? Totally doable for beginners (like Chelsea!)

Phyrra  Feeling fatigue from all the makeup palettes coming out? Courtney brings you a little levity with a new Anti-Haul video!

we heart this  Put some Browder on your brows! They'll look a lot!

Beautygeeks tells a tale of a stinking-hot airport, a West Jet system shut-down, a two-hour (plus 1.5 more) lineup, and the magic that revived the spirits and humour of 20 weary beauty editors.

Blushing Noir  Bring on the nostalgia with the MAC Good Luck Trolls makeup collection!

EauMG has found the perfect beach musk perfume! It smells like manoï on warm skin.

Gouldylox is Currently Craving: Kelly loves lipsticks, and when she finds a formula that rocks her world, she wants to collect them all. In this case, it's the new Amuse Bouche lipstick from Bite Beauty. The colour Kimchi was her BFF last week and while she can't wear that colour daily, she doesn't want to wear any other formula right now.
