Most of my eye pencil minis came from an Urban Decay set that I purchased. I am having a really hard time using them up because I don't use black eyeliner much nor do I use colored eyeliner too much. Mostly everyday I wear brown and I've also started getting into gel.

I don't have a ton of lip product minis. I do have a ton of lip products in general though. I think I'll be able to go through some of these as they are very wearable neutral shades.

I have a lot of samples in this area since I went BB cream crazy at Sephora. I got samples of almost all of the BB creams. I also have a ton of primers. These will take quite a while to go through since you don't need a lot of these products.
I recently have become obsessed with mascara. I have a lot of full sized ones so I don't know if I will open these yet. I am going to try to use up this Anastacia clear brow gel and go back to my Maybelline. The gel liner is in black so I'll probably never use it up and the eyeshadow is not an everyday color so that could take a while.

These products are going to take a while to get threw. I threw one of the blushes in my makeup bag to take to work. I'm going to use Nars Laguna everyday now instead of my NYC Sunny Bronzer and then I'll use the Benefit highlighter in Watts Up. I have the full size of this so I'm not sure why I got the mini. I guess I just thought it was cute and good for the travel. The problem with all of these things is that I'm always saving them for travel and hardly ever travel so I might as well just use them up. The tarte blush in Dollface is great for everyday. I'm going to hit pan on it soon.

I only have a few of these so I should be able to get through these and back to Bath & Body Works. I'm excited about the Kiehls one for fall. The Philosophy ones I don't love that much but they come in all of my New Beauty Test Tubes so I always have at least one.
|Shower Gel Samples|
I am pretty fussy typically with what shampoo/conditioner I use on my hair but I just can't let these go to waste and want to use them. This could take a while though. They have already been put in my shower.
I have a million hair oils that are going to take me forever to get through. I basically do not have to buy another hair oil for the rest of my life since they come in every beauty box.
|Hair Serum/Cream Samples|
I have already stuck the some of these in my shower and makeup bag for work. I'll go through some of these fast and then I can get back to my Bath & Body Works Fall stuff.
|Body/Hand Cream Samples|
This is my all time favorite eye makeup remover. I'm excited to use these as they work so well.

This is another area that will take a while. You only need the smallest amount of eye cream so even though these are small they could last a while. I'm excited to try the Ole Henricksen samples.

Scrubs take me longer to go through since I only use them a few days a week and only once a day. I really want to try out the exfolikate but currently I'm trying to use up my Laura Mercier one.
I don't have a ton of serum samples so these should be gone through pretty quickly. I'm excited to try out the cold plasma sample.
So this is the area that I am most concerned about. I have a zillion moisturizers for some reason. I guess it's a popular sample to give out. I use moisturizer everyday, morning and night. Hopefully I'll make a dent in these.
I love these little minis. I have the large one of the Sugar Rose so I want to use it up. The Advanced Therapy one I plan to use at night before I go to bed. These are very creamy so they go quick.
I have cut down my perfume sample collection a lot. I'm trying not to buy and new full sized perfume bottles until I at least use these samples up. This could take a while though. Usually one little sample lasts 2-3 days. These could last me several months.
So that's it for my samples/minis. Do you think I can make a dent in this during the rest of the 2012? Does this look like a lot to you or not that much? I wonder if anyone has more than this? I'm excited about getting started on this. I'm sure you will see a ton of these in my empties. Happy Saturday everyone!
