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.

Review: Colourpop Ooh La La! Palette

Let's start fresh!

Hello there, this palette felt really appropriate for February in my opinion, because pink makes me think of February as it probably does for a lot of people. I have had this palette for a couple of months now and have been sitting on it, but figured this was the perfect time to properly review this one, so let’s just jump on in and have a little chit chat about this one.

30 Day Lipstick Challenge

April 2018 30 Day Lipstick Challenge

Today I am doing something a little bit different, I saw this challenge over on guesswhatbeauty and decided that I also needed to do this. I can easily do this a couple more times but I decided to share my findings with you guys this time around. I think this is a fantastic challenge for anyone with a bunch of lipstick that are decluttering, though I will admit, I didn’t end up getting rid of as many as I wanted to. But anyway, let’s jump on in and check out a quick bit I thought about a lot of lipsticks.

Project Pan 2018

Untitled design

It is time for another project pan, at this point I think it is impossible for me to finish one project and not start another one, so since I just finished one last weekend it is time to start another one this weekend. This one is different than my past few as it is the first time I am doing one that I plan on doing all year, so this is my one and only project pan for the year, I really wanted to test it out and see how it went, so that’s why we are here. I have once again used the same roulette list and method as some of my past ones, which is here if you want to check it out. I am really excited about this so let’s just jump right on in.

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.

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.

November 2017 Favorites & Face

november2017favsface

If you read my last post then you know I am excited about the Holiday season and the month of December, but I am still trying to give November its fair share of time in the spotlight, just like I do with every other month. So, that means it is time for my November Favorites and Face post, where I talk about all the things that I’ve been loving during the month of November. I have a few of the same favorites this month as I did last month, but I still want to chat about them a bit so let’s get into looking at some great products.

September 2017 Favorites + Face

September Favorites & Face

It’s that time again, time for me to talk about some of my favorite products from the last month, this post is a little light though as I feel like I didn’t wear a whole lot of makeup during September, which I’m going to blame on getting sick. But, since I hadn’t been wearing a ton of makeup during the month that means I don’t have a whole lot of favorites. Let’s just get into it and talk about the products I have been loving.

PSX_20170930_132958

Gold Target Bracelet – I couldn’t find this bracelet on the Target website and it was on clearance when I got it, so I’m assuming they don’t sell it anymore but this bracelet is still a favorite of mine. I’m not much of a bracelet girl but this one is really nice and adds just the right amount of something to an outfit, which is why it is a favorite for the month of September.

Anastasia Beverley Hills Blush Trio in Pool Party – This was in my shop my stash post for last month, so I guess it makes sense that this one is here, it’s one of the products that I was really focusing on using and trying out during the month of September and it left a good impression. I feel like I hear no one talk about these but I actually really like this one and have been debating picking up another one, these come with three shades and I just like having a little bit of variety at my fingertips.

Smith’s Tropical Ambrosia – I feel like everyone loves the Smith’s Rosebud Salve, but I don’t like the rose scent at all, I was debating the strawberry one a little while back but then saw that this one existed and I’m glad I picked this up. This is really moisturizing and the smells amazing, it has a really tropical fruity scent to it that doesn’t smell like straight up coconut, which I personally love.

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – This might be my new holy grail mascara, I never bought high-end mascaras before really and this might be the reason why I’ve fallen hard for this. This doesn’t clump on me at all, this is really dark and this isn’t too wet, a recipe for a perfect mascara to me.

Skinfood Watermelon Mask – This mask is something that I love and am not surprised that I do, mostly because I pretty much love everything to do with watermelon. I have been using this mask a lot after I go for runs, it’s just really cooling and soothing, the smell is amazing too!

NYX Blotting Powder in Light – I always think powder is powder, but when I ran out of this for a short period of time I was reminded that’s not true, I’m super happy to have this back in my hands. This really sets my makeup fantastically and it really helps sheer out products if I get a little bit overly eager with the blush or the bronzer, another thing that I really appreciate.

Eyes: Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance: Tempera, Warm Taupe, Raw Sienna, Vermeer, Antique Bronze and Cyprus Umber. Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer In Noir, Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in In The Nude, Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in Ultra Black, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara. Face: Milk Makeup Blur Stick, Dr. Jart BB Cream in Light Medium, Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer in Fair, Anastasia Beverly Hills Foundation Stick in Dawn, NYX Blotting Powder in Light, NYX Ombre Blush in Mauve Me, Colourpop Super Shock Cheek in Smokin’ Whistles, NYX Matte Setting Spray, Fiona Stiles Micro Precision Brow Sculpting Pencil in Neutral Brown. Lips: The Estee Edit The Barest Contour Lip Liner in In The Buff, Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss in Peach.

Those are all of my favorite products from September and the fact that I decided to share with you guys to represent the month, not that I think anyone look can represent last month since I really didn’t wear makeup nearly enough. It’s been a really slow month but I’m okay with that, these are still things that I have really been loving.

What have you been loving for the month of September?
