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?

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…
