Beautiful Chaos

Hey guys!
Just the other day, I spent the majority of the read reading Beautiful Chaos, the third book in the Beautiful Creatures series. My kindle told me that when I first picked up the book to read in the morning, I was already about 20% through. This was just me slowly reading a chapter or two a night for a few weeks. The beginning of books always are a bit boring to me as it's just a set up of what's going on and what the problem is. 
I tend to go through books relatively quickly and I need to learn how to pace myself so that I don't go broke from reading so many books. This book was no exception. I didn't realize how quickly I would get lost in this book. Usually I don't stay glued to a book before the climax, but this book had me glued 20% through, and when I go through a book that fast, I need to talk about it. 
If you haven't read the first two books in the series, or seen the movie of the first book, the series is your standard YA fantasy book. As typical as it is, I get glued every time. Along with the mortal world, the Beautiful Creatures world includes Casters, which I can only describe simply as witches. They each have a certain power, and for this one particular family, on the girl's 16th birthday, they find out if they are a Light or Dark caster. Lena turns out to be an exception in many ways. Ethan, Amma, and Link, are all seeminly normal mortals who end up tangled in Lena's world and the series is based around her 16th birthday and the aftermath. 
I think I liked this book the most so far, as I read it the quickest, because you learn even more about the Caster world. It was just very intriguing and gripping. Not necessarily a lot of cliff hangers, but more of a curiosity of how things will end. The book itself sort of ended in a cliff hanger, which I have mixed feelings about, but overall, it was a very good book. 4/5 stars for me!

Me oh my am I determined to get my lip products under control. It's basically me decluttering at this point rather than actually using, but these lip products I've had for a while, so I don't feel as bad. Also, to sum up the lip products, unless they stand out to me as not wearing well (fading unevenly, clumping oddly, etc), or the color doesn't suit me, I generally love/make the color work. 
I've also used up quite a few skin care products that I wasn't expecting to finish.
Things I've Used Up:
Joico Color Infuse Red Shampoo: I bloody love this stuff. I claim this is the thing that makes my hair stay red as long as it does. Not only does it have color-lasting powers, but it cleans your hair and actually makes it feel clean. Huge plus in my book. I'm still undecided how long I want to keep my red hair, but if I ever decide to keep it, or go back to red, this is the first thing I'm gonna pick up.
Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: This was a sample that I foun…

As my stash somehow is larger than ever, despite my makeup ban efforts, I still only buy when I get those Ulta "free gift with any purchase" emails that sucker me in each time. I'm going to promise myself that unless I need a spare necessary product that I'm nearly out of, when I get those emails, I'll stick to racking up my lip balm collection.
What I've used up over the past month: Joico Color Extend Shampoo: At first, I didn't mind this shampoo. But after the glaze on my hair washed out, I started to hate this shampoo. It just doesn't feel like my hair is clean at the roots. Apparently this is a common problem with color friendly shampoo, so I'm not mad about it, but now that it's done, I'm excited to try other shampoos that will make my hair feel like I got it done at the salon after each wash. Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo (Sample): OH EM GEE. My hair finally felt like my hair again. I see people buy any and all Living Proof prod…

#ProjectPan June 2017

This month has been fairly tame with finishing things. I'm finding that I'm finally reaching the end of some of my powders and foundations. I'm also doing great with decluttering the lip collection. There's also a bit of face things in there, so hopefully a little something for everyone. 
Products I've Used Up: Dermalogica Pre-Cleanse (30 mL): This is truly life changing. Well, not really, but it took off my makeup exceptionally well and I would happily repurchase this again.  Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream (1.5 mL): I liked how it made my skin feel, but if you over do it, it can still feel tacky in the morning, which wasn't fun. I'm gonna stick with my samples of serums and creams for now.  Maybelline Dream Pure BB: I'm not too fussed with foundations, so I got on with this fairly well. It's a light coverage, but with the right brush, it could be a medium coverage. It lasts a good while. My only complaint is that towards the end, it separated a bi…
