October’s Empties & Reviews:
(👍🏼 Love, 👌🏼 Okay, 👎🏼 Not For Me)
👍🏼 Bath & Body Works PocketBac Maui Mango Mai Tai Anti-bacterial Hand Gel: Works amazing & smells even better! Long lasting scent as well. Very convenient for on the go! I plan on repurchasing.
👌🏼 Revlon Uniq One All-in-One Hair Treatment Coconut Oil: Didn’t notice a significant difference but it did help detangle my hair after showers. May give this another try to see if I change my mind upon results.
👍🏼 Marc Anthony Nourishing Argan Oil of Morocco Sulfate Free Conditioner: I love combining this with my everyday conditioner although I focus this mainly on my ends that need the most love! Loving the smell and texture it brings to my hair, totally purchasing full-size.
👍🏼 Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray: My holy grail, my everyday go to! This setting spray holds me together everyday and makes sure my makeup stays intact. I’ve stayed loyal to this product for years so of course I’ll be repurchasing. Allows all my makeup to settle so beautifully into the skin instead of a cakey-look.
👍🏼 Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Oil: I never really tried a cleansing oil before receiving this in my makeup subscription so I was really excited for this especially it being my all time favorite skin care brands! It totally blew me away and made removing my tough eye makeup so easy and painless! This definitely made my night time routines much more enjoyable repurchasing without a doubt.
👌🏼 Pūrlisse Coconut Oil + Coffee Sugar Body Scrub: I loved the smell of this product however I’m not a fan of the mess the coffee grounds make. I’m like this with all scrubs, however- it left my skin feeling noticeably smoother and awake! May give this another chance in the future but for now I’ll stick to normal scrubs.
A few beauty empties and a candle.
1. @bathandbodyworks black chamomile. This had decent throw and smelled light and fresh.
2. @cetaphilus moisturizing cream. I buy this whenever it goes on sale at Costco. It comes with this large tub and a travel size. This is my favorite moisturizer for my sensitve skin, it is very hydrating.
3. @cerave PM facial moisturizing lotion. This is nice and gentle on my face. It doesn't cause breakouts.
4. @equate.health make-up remover towelettes. I really don't use make-up clothes on my face because all of them break me out, but I bought these for my gym bag. I ended up using them to wipe make-up from my fingers and cleaning up any fallout under my eyes. I was not a fan of the smell. It was too strong for me.
Product: Nyx Illuminator in Enigmatic. I was rifling through my old makeup drawer (yes, I have a drawer just for old makeup) and decided this would be a great container for a couple of bronzers I’m going to mix and re-pan tomorrow.
So this is my current #projectpan
These are all the products I would like to finish / hit pan on by the end of the year. A couple of the products (foundation, watts up & primark primer water) are from my #10bymybirthday project I’ve got going on.
I really think I will manage to hit my goals on finishing all of these products except the 2 powders which i want to hit pan on & also the L’Oréal silicone primer as I’m working on finishing the green one first. I am planing on being cut throat and only using these 3 lip products everyday, I have a red, a nude bullet and then also a liquid lip! So hopefully it’s promising😀 I will keep you updated throughout the last few months of the year! ❤️
💕 Post of Empties for October! Mostly skincare but some hair products that I LOVED and repurchased.
🌟 @igkhair sample of Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm. Loved this so much I bought the full size!
✨ @tartecosmetics sample of C-Brighter Eye Treatment. Bought the full size.
🌟 #tartecosmetics samples of #DrinkofH2O moisturizer. I still have another sample I’m working on!
✨ @garnierusa #Micellar Cleansing Water. I’ve bought all the types of these in full size.
🌟 @mariobadescu Enzyme Cleansing Gel. Did not like. Not repurchasing.
✨ #mariobadescu Special Cucumber Lotion. Did it work? Maybe. I might repurchase...
🌟 @curology Custom Skincare Prescription. Love this stuff. Keeps my breakouts almost none! ✨ @clarinsusa One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser sample. Repurchased the full size.
🌟 @grandecosmetics GrandeLash MD. This stung my eyes so bad no matter how I applied it. It probably worked but it wasn’t worth the pain!
✨ @lovephilosophy Purity Made Simple Moisturizer. Didn’t break me out but I probably won’t repurchase.
🌟 @kleancolor ProSealer Matte Setting Spray. It worked fine.
✨ @tresemme #KeratinSmooth Deep Smoothing Mask. This stuff is awesome! I wish I could find it in a bigger container!
🌟 Mario Badescu Hyaluronic Eye Cream. This was way thick for an eye cream. I didn’t like it.
✨ @sc Golden Hour Highlighting Powder in Dusk. I love this highlighter! I dropped it and it broke everywhere. I’ll repurchase it.
I won a giveaway from @desireebeautymess !! I actually received this last week but I haven’t had a chance to post it 😅 The main gift was the highlight palette which is absolutely stunning! The rest was in a goody bag full of samples and there were so many full sized items I was so surprised! She is so sweet and generous, if you’re looking for a clean refreshing feed I would 💯 recommend her page

And just like that I also hit pan on my favorite single eyeshadow I own. This @lunabylunacosmetics in Jace is so beautiful and pigmented and blends beautifully. I will definitely be looking into more if their products.
Here you see a picture of my palette collection I took back in May 2015. A lot of those palettes are decluttered, used up or depotted by now (swipe to see) and the last picture is my current collection. I am happy with it which is good, because I’ll be on a nobuy for a long time... 🙈
I’d love to see your palette collection too! If you post it make sure to tag me so I can check it out!
Used up my @pacificabeauty Gem Water. I love this stuff! It smells amazing and definitely helps my face! I’ve noticed a big difference in my skin using this daily. Thankfully, I ordered three of these bad boys when @ultabeauty was having a sale, so I still have two more to use before I run out! Even when I use those up though I would definitely repurchase more!
My first #makeupempties in a while! @benefitcosmetics The Porefessional deluxe sample primer. This little baby has lasted several weeks. A little goes a long way! It fills pores beautifully and really grips to my makeup. I've definetly noticed increased wear time when using it. I have another deluxe sample to get through (as well as two other primers in my project pan) but once those are done I will definitely repurchase! #panporn#makeuprehab#projectpan#projectpancommunity#projectpan2018
First product from my #relaxedprojectpan is done! I liked the Maybelline Great Lash mascara, it’s a really nice basic one for every day. However, it was a bit too difficult to remove and I would always have leftover smudges in the morning, no matter how many times I swiped that cotton pad over my eyes. It also started drying up too quickly for my taste. The verdict? I don’t think I’d buy it again, but it’s definitely not the worst out there!
Progress in my little revolution contour, blush and highlight kit! I really want to hit pan on the bronzer before then end of this project pan! I’ve been trying to use it most days along with my hoola bronzer but it looks like I’ve made no progress in a whole month!😩#projectpan#projectpanner#panporn
🎊Pigment- & single-shadow-week round up🎊
All of the products that I love or like, I’ve bought myself. The others came to me in subscription boxes or sets. Clearly, subscription boxes are not for me😁
💕Love: Mac pigments in Copper & Blue Brown
✔️Like: Mac pigment in Melon & veluxe pearl eyeshadow in woodwinked
👻Keep for halloween looks: milk Make-up eye pigment in silent disco & da vinci pigment in Mona Lisa
👿Declutter: BareMinerals pigment in champagne toast, marsk mineral eyeshadow in you’re toast, jcat eyeshadow in half naked, Nars dual-intensity eyeshadow in himalia
➡️ swipe for swatches (picture 2 & 3)
➡️ swipe for two looks (picture 4) right side: BareMinerals champagne toast & left side: mac woodwinked - they look too similar to me, so I let one go. I have no picture of a look with Nars himalia but I used it last week & the look turned out the same, so I let that one go as well.
#12pansofchristmas#projectpan update 1.
Finished up my Mac Strobe Cream
Finished up my Jouer matte green liner
Lost my Marc Jacob's lip liner so will replace with my Beauty for Real lip liner. Hoping to make progress as it's my oldest liner.
Only used my Hourglass foundation once.
Big dips going in my Model Co. Highlighter
Some wear on my WnW blush
Big pan on my KVD contour
Hit pan on my colourpop aphrodisiac blush
Accidentily dug holes in my Mary Loumanizer highlighter with some slight dips in it.
Used my smashbox primer oil and OPI Nail Envy a few times
Used my UD lip gloss a few times but no notable wear.
This is a collab with other great instagrammers and youtubers, make sure to check out their progress! Hopefully I was able to tag everyone who's currently in the project.
Hit the pan on this @essence_cosmetics #silkytouchblush ..in natural beauty and it is really natural beauty. Very creamy easy to blend and natural look to skin!!
And above all its affordable..i dont know if they still had this silky touch formula or if it is discontinued..they now release matte and satin formula and they pretty affordable too..
Use with it a @coastalscents blush #brush
I've been working on getting through my masks lately (thanks joe for all the help), and I got some lovely empties here. the @sundayriley foundation was pretty great, but I get a similar effect from the L'Oreal BB cream and some concealer on top. Much more affordable!
i bought this palette last year just for the black eyeshadow for my halloween look and thats it but it was gona be a waste if it just sat in my drawer without being touched ever again so i decided to use the black for my eyeliner which fucking crumbled this year and died so theres nothing left in that pan besides a speck lol. the first shade to set my eyelids and the forth cool toned brown shade to contour my nose along with using it for my lower lash line
using this colourpop super shock cheek highlighter in shade lunch money made me appreciate cream products like wow this shit is so smooth and compliments my olive skin without being too golden or pink toned
