Try It Tuesday: MAC Lipstick in Syrup

I had always imagined I would get my first MAC lipstick when it was time to do my first back to MAC. That was not the case. Me, my mom, and my sister were already at the mall and my sister had it in her that she was going to get a MAC blush. Because I love makeup and trying things, I decided I had to get something from MAC, so obviously I wanted a lipstick.
I was thinking quick as my mom was getting impatient with us (she's not a fan of makeup) and the only color shooting out at me was Syrup! I knew that Lily Pebbles loves that color so therefore I needed it as Lily has similar coloring to me so I knew I could pull the color off.

First swatch was quite the experience! I didn't know what to expect at all. It's a lustre so I knew it was going to be shiny, but I wasn't sure of how opaque it would be on me or even how it would feel!
It felt nice and smooth and I could tell that it wouldn't be very drying. It lasts 3ish hours, and fades beautifully. So all the things I look for in a lip product are met, so I fell in love straight away. Oh and a little warning that this color doesn't look the same on every person. I could have sworn that it was a purpley-pink nude. On the bullet, it's more pinky-purple. On me, it's lighter than the bullet.
All in all, I'm so happy I finally have a MAC lipstick, and it's a lip color I know I'll get a lot of use out of!

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…

#ProjectPan July 2017

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…
