Project Pan 2019: Update #1

Hello there, I can not believe that it is already time for me to my first update on my project pan, and I wish I had great news but I am not sure that I do. I have been using things but haven’t made nearly as much of a dent as I would have liked to, but either way the day to check in is here so I will be sharing my progress and hoping for better progress the next time around. So, for now, let’s just jump in and check in.

Dupe: Essence vs. Benefit

DupeBenefitvsessence (1)

Hello there, today I am talking all about dupes on the blog, something that I do every month and this month is one that I have seen on Pinterest a few times but haven’t really delved too deep into. So I thought it would be a great idea if I just tested these two products out for myself since I owned both. So, let’s get into seeing how these two shape up against one another.

Pack With Me: Fall 2018

Pack With Me

If you did not know I am currently in Florida, for just a few more hours when this post goes up, I will be headed home today. Anyway, a trip is always an excuse for a few blog posts for me and this time around I thought it would be fun to share my travel makeup and skincare, I will warn you, this is not about packing lightly for me because I am a serious over-packer, but I thought it still might be fun to share what I brought along with me to Florida. You might want to grab and drink and a snack before settling in, like most of my blog posts.

March 2018 Favorites + Face

March 2018

April is here, I really hate April Fools Day, anyone else here hate it too? I just don’t like being messed with or people trying to play pranks on me. I’m just so glad that it falls on Sunday this year which means I don’t have to worry about co-workers messing with me this year. Anyway, the month of March is over which means that it is time to start doing monthly posts and to kick this month off I am doing my monthly favorites and face, last month was pretty boring but I think this month was a little more interesting.

December 2017 Favorites + Face

December 2017Favorites + Face.jpg

I know, this may start to get repetitive, which I said in my last post, but I wanted to talk about my favorites for the month of December because I had a few and not all of them made it into my yearly favorites. My yearly favorites was more of a list of things that I constantly went to throughout the whole year and were just staple products, whereas my monthly posts are a little bit of that but also a lot of fun things that I have been enjoying for a month or so, so I thought it was perfectly acceptable and okay to write about my monthly favorites as well.

Today we are focused on makeup, the thing that I am sure most of you are here for and what is easily my favorite favorites post to write for the year. I have one more favorites post that I have planned for tomorrow and then that will wrap up all of my yearly favorites for 2017. I can’t believe the year is almost gone, it is insane. But anyway, today I am talking about all of the products that I really loved and found myself using all the time during this past year.

Worth The Splurge!

ProductsWorth The Splurge

This post started out with me wanting to talk about all of the products that I thought were worth the splurge, however, this just ended up being makeup products, which I think is fine. The journey to get here was a little bit of me being conflicted, I’m too indecisive when it comes to everything that I was looking through my makeup and picking out products, which ended up with me picking out too many things and having to put things away. I think I settled on a fair amount of my favorite more splurge worth items, so let’s talk about them.

October 2017 Favorites & Face

OctoberFavorites

It’s November, Happy November! I am excited about this month because it means it’s finally acceptable for me to talk about Christmas, depending on who you ask they might say it’s not but everyone around me says it is and I am excited about this. This month has gone by in the blink of an eye, it feels like just yesterday I was writing my September favorites and now it’s time for the October ones, so I guess we can just jump into it.

Engagement Photo Makeup

Engagement Photo Makeup

I know I just did a makeup look of sorts the other day, a full face using only Nyx brand makeup, but I’m back with another makeup look. As you may know, I’m getting married this year and we’re thinking about doing engagement photos, so I’ve been thinking about what to wear, how to do my hair and things like that, which means I’m going to show off what looks like will be my makeup for the photos. We will be taking photos outside and it’s going to be fairly casual, so I didn’t over do it and kept it fairly simple I think. Let me show you what I’m thinking about doing.

I like this look, I think this is a really simple but fresh look, I think this is something that I could wear just about anywhere, in fact, I wore it to work the other day and I think it was even perfect for that. Granted, where I work no one really seems to care what I wear in terms of makeup, but I still think this is overall a really work appropriate makeup look. Now, here’s some close ups of the eye and then I’ll list all of the products that I used down below it.

 

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Wet ‘N Wild Contouring Palette in Dulce De Leche

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Ochre, Warm Taupe, and Cyprus Umber

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shimma Shimma

Milani Liquid Eye Eyeliner in Black

Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in Ultra Black

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara in Black

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in In The Nude

Benefit The Porefessional

Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan Finishing Balm in Etheric

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation in Snow

L.A. Girl Pro Concealer in Porcelain

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronzer

Milani Baked Blush in Bella Bellini

Wet ‘N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals

Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Porcelain

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray

Nyx Butter Gloss in Madeleine

And that is everything that I used, a really good mix of high end and drugstore products, along with some new things which you may know if you saw my huge Ulta Haul I posted on Tuesday, I was itching to try out at least a few of the new things and they seemed like perfect fits here. So far, I like everything but I’ll have more in-depth reviews of products at some point in time.

What do you guys think of this look?
