Try It Tuesday: Too Faced PBJ Palette

This is one post I had planned to write about much later, but let's be honest, I couldn't help myself and had to try it out asap!
The backstory: I first heard about this palette at work one night. My manager told me that Too Faced is coming out with this palette, it's Ulta exclusive, and it smells of peanut butter. I was like oh, okay that's cool, I got too many shadows though so I don't know if I will get it. Fast forward a few weeks later and I see Too Faced's instagram where I see the palette in all it's glory. My first thought? I need that Jelly color because it's BEAUTIFUL. Most of the colors were warm toned, which I don't really go after, so I was telling myself that I would probably be paying a lot just for one color. Then there were sleepless nights where I just couldn't stop thinking about it, watching tutorials using it, and then looking at more pictures of it. I became obsessed. But then I had no idea when the palette would be in stores until the night before. Thank goodness I was scheduled to work an hour after opening. I headed into work right away because I just needed that palette so bad. I think I was the first to buy it as it wasn't even on display yet. Let me just say, it's even cuter in person...
First impression: Okay so I already said that the packaging is beyond adorable. The PB&J sandwich cartoon stole my heart. The purple lipstick for the jelly is very cute too. The smell was not what I was promised. It's more of a chocolate peanut butter. The colors in the tin look exactly like the pictures do. As for when you swatch, the only really pigmented ones were the browns. The purples, jelly, and jammin' were less intense than I had imagined. As the primer I'm currently using, isn't that amazing with intensifying colors, I haven't seen the intense purples myself, but when I warned my manager about it, I have seen the true beauty of the purples with the right primer. They were also super blendable and for my first Too Faced eye shadow impression, I am very pleased. 

Have you tried the PBJ palette yet?

This past month, I've said goodbye to my red hair and reintroduced to the blonde life. I've also been surprised by using up various face products...
Joico Color Infuse Red Conditioner: THIS IS THE SOLE REASON MY HAIR HAD SUCH A NICE COPPERY RED HUE. Sorry for the caps locks but this stuff is the best ever if you have dyed your hair any shade of red. Even though towards the end of the month, the orangey bits shone through in the light, my hair had an overall redness to it that had everyone is awe. I swear it makes the red last longer or at least tone it beautifully. If I ever go red again, this will be the first thing I buy.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Conditioner ( .33 oz): I'm obsessed with this conditioner as well. Total splurge if I ever bought the full size but oh my I feel like my hair was thanking me for treating it with this conditioner. I truly had a perfect hair day after using this. My hair felt oh so soft and I couldn't have been happier!

#ProjectPan October 2017

Of course as soon as I barely run out of anything last month, this month I'm running out of everything!
Products I've Used Up:

Zoella Beauty Ginger Cream: I got this during my winter vacation in London, where I went on a Superdrug hunt for any Zoella Beauty product I could get my hands on. This lotion is part of the winter collection, and was part of a set. I am not the pickiest with lotions, but I compare all to my holy grail, Bath & Body Works lotions. With this, a little went a long way. It wasn't a thick formula, and yet it was a crazy amount of moisturizing goodness in such a small amount. Super impressed. The scent itself was a bit too sweet at times, but the smell is definitely just like a gingerbread cookie. 

Batiste Original Dry Shampoo: LOVE the original! Probably my holy grail dry shampoo, even better than the Not Your Mother's one. Sucks up all the oil. No white residue. All good things, all good things...
Living Proof Restore Perfecting Spray (0.5 oz): I p…

#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…
