Watch It Wednesday: American Idol

Dalton Rapattoni

If you've been keeping up with my Wednesday posts, you'll know that I am much more a fan of YouTube than actual TV shows. So, when I watch a show consistently, you know it's good! 
American Idol is one of those shows that I only watch from start to finish if I watch it from the beginning. I also have a knack for picking out the best of the best too (Kelly, Carrie, Jordan, Scotty and Lauren Alaina(yes I know she was runner up)). Given that I haven't watched Idol since Scotty and Lauren's year, I only paid a little bit of attention to this season when I first saw that it was the last season, but also one of my favorites, Dalton, had auditioned and made it to Hollywood. 
I had known about Dalton for about 2/3 years now because I found out about his band that he was in, IM5. I loved his voice from the start, and of course I wanted him to do well and I just keep checking his twitter to see how he was doing each week. 
But then one night, I saw Lauren Alaina tweet that she would be on Idol that night, and I believe it was the top 24, so I ended up giving it a go, and posting my thoughts on twitter. I actually really loved most of the Idols and picked some other favorites besides Dalton. 
Then I wanted to try and watch the show the next week to again see who made it to the next round. And again...I finally admitted to myself that I want to really watch it so now I rush home after class on Thursdays to see the results. I usually work on Wednesday nights so if I'm free, I'll try to watch then as well. 
Basically, it's the last season. The talent is really good, and mostly really young. I think Dalton is gonna win it. Check my twitter (@LexisGuide) every Thursday Night at 8pm EST to see some funny reaction tweets. 

Who do you think will win Idol this season?

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…
